To My Valentine

I composed this for Sweetface early in our marriage.
 I feel the same way today--only more so.
Happy Valentine's Day, my Love.

So softly falls your breath upon my face
As I lie sleeping in your loving arms.
How gently beat our hearts entwined as one
Until the breaking of another dawn.
What chance could ever have designed this love?
Not fate, my Sweet, but only God alone
Could ever in His kindness have designed
Such tenderness to heal this heart of mine.
So on that day when I'm infirm and frail,
A shadow of myself, and my life fails,
Remember how I loved you, Valentine--
And ever shall, beyond the cords of time.
Remember on this silent winter's night
I held you close and kissed your sleeping eyes,
And thanked our Lord in heaven up above
For sending you to me to dearly love.


  1. You are an amazing woman, I love coming on here and seeing all that you do. Just want to let you know.

  2. Amazingly blessed is more like it! :-)
