Hidden or Forgotten----A Valentine

I found it safely tucked away, Held deep within her private things She put it there, with lock and key Intended, not, for eyes to see? A cherished thing?.... Forgotten, ...when? Or was it not?...Perhaps and then.... Does it tell of secret love? Another spring, or just a whim? A treasured time, a change of fate? The date it holds, confuses me Revealing now, "what might have been?" When sleep upon her eyelids came And took her fairness far from here What held her name, with antique flair Of lilacs blooming, roses paired With lacy hearts, and cupid's spear This tells me secrets, something dear... Someone loved her, someone cared long before my Grandpa dared

    Amazing! Perfect rhythm on this poem, alongside of some unique rhyme. You also used questions to a great advantage. One of the best poems I have read on the soup.

    This is my firstpoem of the day. But it has surely stole my heart away. It's construction, poeticly made. Words crafted by muses to create a masterpiece. This piece touched me thus. The Situation.
