Be my Valentine: What does that mean?
Each of us might walk through life alone,
More lonely than a long-forgotten poem,
Yearning for a face we've never seen.
Valentines awake us from 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 those we're trusted with,
Even as we bind our lives together.
