Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day
Saint Valentine of Rome was imprisoned
For performing weddings for soldiers
Who were forbidden to marry not to send
Who were persecuted on the altars

Valentine healed Asterius the daughter
Of jailer, and before his execution, he wrote
Her letter signed Your Valentine" as farewell
From that day on it became a love quote

Love is to be celebrated and to openly dwell
In the hearts of those who take care as pain
As a life time celebration of a lover to excel
By dangling and dancing in the dazzling rain

In all moon beams and in all sun streaks
With real love sentiments and love passion
So this is who the love of a martyr speaks
Oh Love is engraved as a real love fashion
