Weíve spent each day together
making the most of our time.
But today, I need to ask
where is my valentine?

Youíre 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 itíll be,
for you never fail to please.
Donít 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 Valentineís day will bring.

The day is almost over
and I havenít seen you yet.
Youíre working very hard
just to keep yourself in debt.

I couldnít sleep at all last night
when you didnít come back home.
The police told me to stay nearby
and to stay off of the phone.

You werenít 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 didnít have much time to live.
His Christianity was a wonderful gift.
The best gift that he could ever give.

Such a sweet testimony of the LORD going before you and taking you through victoriously. What a blessing your poem is!

all I can say is "wow". Loved the line: >>His Christianity was a wonderful gift.
The best gift that he could ever give. <<

Touching!

A nicely structured poem that says what you want it to clearly and succinctly. Love this line: 'Youíre working very hard just to keep yourself in debt.' It has so many layers of meaning.

The poem conveys thoughtfulness and caring and the gift that was most significant was his turning to Christianity. Well done.
