MY ONLY VALENTINE

MY ONLY VALENTINE

Your voice on the telephone

Hushes the storm in my heart

Lightning strikes twice

In the same place.

I cannot picture your face

No photograph, no keepsake,

No letters scented with your smile,

No ring or marriage bed.

Your kisses were the best

I ever had, my first,

My only valentine.
