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.

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
