Valentine At Seventy-2 - Poem by Loke Kok yee

A rose for you my Valentine
Your beauty rare will ne'er decline
My lovelorn heart for you do pine
A love forlorn that once did shine

Neath gloomy skies I sat to dine
And all alone, I sipped my wine
What shall I do to make you mine
And once again in love entwine

For ne'er again this libertine
Will glass be raised for auld lang syne
This pledge thus made in stone enshrined
And never more you'll need repine

A fleeting smile, a tender sign
With twinkling eyes, gently benign
A burning kiss to make me thine
Forever more in love divine

    " My lovelorn heart for you do pine" ... " does pine"

    The photo reminds me of a casket/corpse photo. I can't tell if someone died or 'left' a relationship some other way. It sounds like the relationship ended but maybe got rekindled somehow. hmm?

    nice rhyming
