Forever Valentine

Pink and white
candy bites
“I’m Yours”
“Be Mine”
Just in time
For spring – a rhyme
I hearts
Tender parts
Young love
A tender shove
Love and kisses
Chase the Misses
Breaking dishes
Jumping ditches
Road to riches
Something itches
His n Her mugs
Big old hugs
Biting bugs
A road to happy
Use a mappy
Thinking sappy
Get a slappy
Or a nappy
Love you
And love you
Loving life
And love
The wife!
A lifetime rap
A tender trap
Here to say
True love ways
For rich – for poor
Forever yours
Chocolate and wine
Arms entwined
My forever
