My Valentine - Poem by Md. Ziaul Haque

Opposed Emperor Claudius II, the Roman, Saint Valentine,
The former considered marriage of young men as improper,
Thinking that single man would make better soldier,
Than those with wives and kin.

It was Valentine, standing against that inequality,
Performing marriages for young lovers in secret,
But was put behind bars where Asterius' daughter paid visit,
They say that with this beautiful girl Valentine fell in love deeply.

Before death's kiss 'From Your Valentine' acted as his sign,
An expression of love for the lovers- 'You are my Valentine'.

    beautiful poem
    ///
    O valentine
    you are my saint
    I know there is no pain
    although, everyone, in there becomes insane
    yet; in that lane
    you're my heart of main!
