Valentine To Vivian - 1973
Dear Vivian: 'With this ring I thee wed! '
Recall those words, sincerely said?
Since that day, ten years have passed
And the tides of time have gently lashed
Securing the bond that has slipped and strained
Blessing our union with truth unfeigned.
Though the Lord above knows, I try quite hard
I simply forgot your Christmas card!
So I ask you now as part of our lease
To please accept in the spirit of peace
The message gleaned from this verse in lieu
Of a valentine saying, 'I still love you! '
