valentine heart and crossA day of love, of roses, hearts

Where dance emotions through the arts

Where passion meets the cherub’s dart

On this day, Valentine


“I promise to be only thine

You who are forever mine”

And hearts expand and hearts entwine

Always for Valentines


It is a day of love and passion

Expressed in today’s latest fashion

All other days our love we ration

But not on Valentine’s


We seek to grasp, to keep, to hold

That elusive thing that can’t be sold

And pour it in perfection’s mold

For it’s our Valentine


But in a time so long ago

That now the truth we don’t quite know

A love endured life’s harshest blow

His name was Valentine


For love he lived, in love he died

A love he knew would yet abide

Beyond life’s time and past its tide

He loved his “Valentine”


Their love was pure, their lives so young

As dreams among the stars they flung

The angels saw and cherubs sung

For it was Valentine


But hate, as ever, evil sought

Hoping true love from earth to blot

Happened upon a sordid plot

And captured Valentine


“Repent of this love that you now speak

Such notions make the nation weak

The strong will win over the meek”

They ordered Valentine


“But I must to this love be true

A love that died for me and you

Even if only accepted by a few”

Thus spoke he, Valentine


And for this love he chose to die

Around the world they heard his cry

His soul then flew beyond the sky

New life for Valentine


And on this day of love behold

A priceless truth that can’t be sold

More precious than diamonds or pure gold

The words of Valentine


True love is bound to sacrifice

Yet is willing to pay the highest price

Beyond which lies sweet paradise

Forever, Valentine


Fear not the loss, for deepest gain

Lies on the paths that promise pain

For at the end, life starts again

And always, Valentine

moonlit nightThe moon it stands
Untouched by hands
Beholding our sad plight
It sees these days
The errant ways
And yet still shines each night

The light portrays
Its silent phase
Bright as it grows and fades
A message unheard
Spoken without word
Earth pines beneath its shades

We try to reach
What they would teach
If we would dare to listen
Our minds inflate
But why the hate
When dawns light still can glisten

We try to roam
Venture from home
Experience, your master
We run away
Night follows day
And we run ever faster

But in the night
Survey the sight
And breathe the peaceful scene
The moon’s bright glowing
Magnificent, knowing
Portraying wisdom serene

You can’t explain
Yet would not deign
Its secret words to hear
Though it intrigues
Curiosity piques
Yet still, yet still you fear

But come away
Travel a day
Within the moonlit wonder
Perhaps you’ll hear
It shed a tear
On mankind’s way of plunder

Perhaps you’ll view
Its gaze on you
With wisdom of all ages
Of lives revived
And hell survived
As mankind turned its pages

Perhaps you’ll see
A future scene
Of what will yet unfold
Of days to come
Of stars and sun
Of moonlit paths untold

Yet stay a while
Perhaps you’ll smile
A secret to behold
Of forever’s doors
Beyond these shores
Upon its streets of gold
