The poet is dead, and I hope that what he wrote here, had changed into true love till the day he died. A Valentine is temporary, but true love in a marriage stays until one of the two would die. CONGRATULATIONS to his family for being chosen as the Modern Poem of the Day. Hurray! Most deserving poem..A wonderful Valentine poem.
