Valentine Wine - Poem by Jude Ogunade

Darling Mine!
This is thine.
This is valentine wine.
Now drink and be mine,
Only for a day’s season.
But bury this in your mind:
Sweetheart, this night only we will dine.
With wine and in sin we will rhine.
Worry not my gullible mine,
Every valentine you will be mine.
Love that waits for valentine
to be renewed,
Will last only but a pint of lifetime;
And like a feeble mushroom
be erased by the dews.
Love then all the time,
Not minding the clime,
Show love to all that is of life,
For life without love is full of strife,
Darling mine, love every time,
Darling mine, love every moment,
For then will you
be forever mine.
