Saint Valentine Defines Tough Love

When those you most love
die
that's the time to speak in praise of love
(said Saint Valentine) .

When those you have most loved
up and go, without a word,
that's the time to speak in praise of love
(said Saint Valentine) .

When those you would most love
want nothing to do with you,
that's the time to speak in praise of love
(said Saint Valentine) .

When you feel that all you need right now
is a little love, to change your life,
that's the time to speak in praise of love
(said Saint Valentine) .

When you feel cheated by love
because it's never come your way,
that's the time to speak in praise of love
(said Saint Valentine) .

Trust me. It's not easy to become a saint;
said Saint Valentine.

XXX.St.V.

It's a nice poem. Love is the foundation of life. Everything revolves around love.
a fine exploration of the mystery which love always is and the strange power of accepting all and giving all without a shred of lust for any sort of return a wonderful poem, and a smile thrown in to complete the delight
a thoughtful piece that made me...smile. u.
