Sweet Valentine


To lay forever never to be parted
Is but a sweet lover's dream.
Somewhere the chord snapped
And we were parted.

Eternity took you away
From my sight, your sound no
Longer audible. I am left to drift
Thinking of you my dear Valentine.

I wander the long days alone
In the hills or through the park,
Walking Clara around the lake
Or along the sandy beach.

I sit and wait for my time to come
When we will meet, walk and run
Through green fields of eternity
And you can once again be my
Sweet Valentine.

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
