The Harmonious Blacksmith.
Valentine: What does that mean?
Each of us may walk through life alone,
More isolated than we could have known,
Yearning for far more than we have seen.
Valentines are from beyond that dream,
Are like a sunrise on a world of stone,
Letting us be more than on our own,
Embracing us with love, that life redeems.
No way but through loving might we give
The freedom of our being to another.
In such a mutual sacrifice we live
Needing, trusting whom we're trusted with,
Even as we bind our lives together.
