Ode To Being Five (Children) - Poem by C.J. Heck

I made a paper Valentine
all red and edged with lace.
And on my paper Valentine,
I drew a pretty face.

I painted on two big blue eyes
and then a great big grin
and knew it wouldn't be complete
without a dimpled chin.

I love you, paper valentine,
and just between us two,
I hope someday when I grow up
I'll look as sweet as you.

    I love your poet's valentine -
    and just between us two,
    I hope to you, it looks like me;
    to me, it looks like you...
