That Valentine - Poem by Liilia Talts Morrison

So smooth your love in summer season
entrancing me with cunning reasons
autumn winds and winter came
some friends no longer knew my name
only you embracing me became my dark reality
nights conquered days as you grew stronger
submerging, I saw light no longer

it was a season preordained
not ever to return again

time came, you vanished in Spring mists
how I recall our last love kiss
entwining me in bygone bliss

seasons pass, a long gray line
unsung, unheard, unknown I pine
no longer mine, that Valentine.
