I think of you of during my day,
You are in my thoughts.
My conversation is sprinkled with your name.
In fact you are in all I do or say.
My love for you is a fountain of youth,
A mountain of joy, a whisper….a song,
A momentous moment of truth.
It’s a sky of blue, lazy and cloudy.
It’s a sea of green, bursting through,
A parade of red, drummers drumming loudly.
Violets blooming right on cue.
It’s as the peace of a dove,
The depth of my love.
It reaches far and wide,
My arms embrace you,
I AM always at you side.
You are the apple of my eye,
The peach that blossoms fair,
The orchard of my bounty,
If you need me , I AM there.
You are both memories and music,
Singer and song,
And I love you, all the day long.
You are both rhyme and reason,
The laughter of a far away season.
Gardens and gazebos,
Morning dew and evening mist.
You are every love, I ever loved,
Every kiss, I’ve ever kissed.
I only hope that you’ll think of me this way,
My love, bright, shining, as the Son.
It is finished! It is done!
For darkness overshadowed the cross,
The only love I ever knew,
Became my pain, my loss.
I gave Him up! I had to!
I had to look away!
And I did it just for you!
And though you’ve praised Him,
Maybe, you don’t understand,
All I’ve written or said.
My love is alive, living,
I raised Him from the dead!
I gave you all I had, that is true.
Because I love you everlasting, blessing you.
So follow in His footsteps, the very path He trod.
I hope you know how much I love you,
It’s true, every word, please believe.
I hope you have received and love, Jesus,
Your Valentine from God.
