"Be my Valentine"
             Those were the words
             that captured my heart
             when i opened the card
             the card that you sent
             the card I have kept
             and read every day
             for seven years now.

             Hoping against hope
             as i wake and hear
             the familiar sound
             of the post through the door
             that a card will be waiting
             which once more will say
             "Be my Valentine"

             I gave you my heart
             when i opened that card
             a heart still beating
             with love and desire    
             so come the 14th 
             that precious date
             the day birds are fabled
             to choose their mate

             I will be waiting
             I will be listening

             Just in case.
