All around us, we see hearts,©02/14/2013 Carol Welch
expressing special bonds and wishes,
to be in another's life a part.
Won by chocolates delicious?
Remembering Saint Valentine,
who blessed with loving acts, though loss
was his lot, not heady wine,
or sweet love won, or being boss.
The kindness of the one who cares,
the precious beauty of God's earth,
and, heart appreciating shares,
from life's strange turns, a witty mirth.
So, life hands out what is in store,
and we can stand in loss or glee.
Then I find sweetness all the more.
I share with you and you with me.
