More Than A Valentine

You may love someone though parted
By many miles and many years,
And that love remains like a
Lovely tulip opening and closing
With the dawn and the dusk.
Years pass and life goes on. . .  
But that love is never forgotten.
It glows with a golden light 
Within the heart.

Letters need not be written,
Words need not be spoken.
Thoughts are enough to sustain that love;
Thoughts, and memories shared.
When I light a candle, it is for you
In remembrance of the burning embers 
Of our love that will never grow cold,
Even as we grow old.

    Lovely Connie, the human being is capable of memories and feelings that go with them and you've expressed the essence of it so beautifully. Are you having a dry spell as I am?

    Wow! The expressions and similies here speak so eloquently. Everyone we ever cared for probably carries part of us with them wherever they go. ~Thanks so very much for your awesome encouragement.
