February 14, 2017, Prescott-
It’s said that Valentine sought to safeguard marriage,
from Caesar Claudius II’s misguided bans.
Marriage outlived Claudius,
who outlived Valentine,
Love is somewhat honoured,
by candy, and flowers.
I have found it is equally honoured,
by being able to be with someone,
They turn into years and decades,
and the returns are paid,
I had my wonderful decades,
and wish the same to those
No matter how one marks today,
let your love remain ever strong.
Another joy on which to hold:
Real love is never gone.
