making the most of our time.
But today, I need to ask
where is my valentine?
You’re always a step ahead of me,
and have been extremely wise,
to give me that perfect gift.
Each year is a new surprise.
This year, I wonder what it’ll be,
for you never fail to please.
Don’t keep me in suspense much longer,
but I know how you love to tease.
One year, a trip to Europe
another, a diamond ring.
I shudder to think just what
this Valentine’s day will bring.
The day is almost over
and I haven’t seen you yet.
You’re working very hard
just to keep yourself in debt.
I couldn’t sleep at all last night
when you didn’t come back home.
The police told me to stay nearby
and to stay off of the phone.
You weren’t feeling too good
and I should have seen the signs.
I just wish someone would answer me:
where is my Valentine?
Well, someone found my Valentine
who passed away yesterday.
But first he asked Christ into his life
and went to a church to pray.
The illness stole away many years,
and he didn’t have much time to live.
His Christianity was a wonderful gift.
The best gift that he could ever give.
