Valentine, I Wish You Well

Flew past me on the gustiest of gales.
I saw, but a glimpse as you still did sail.
My one great chance, neither head, nor of tail.
I stumbled on a rose, sharp as a nail!

My hair was askew, my attire a mess.
Me, a grain of sand, she a fine red dress.
All for naught, I loved our meet more than less.
This sacred moment, to curse and to bless!

And at ponder-some times when I can't sleep,
Gazing upon that distant starry sea,
I dream that cruel and impossible dream,
That you caught, but the faintest glimpse of me.

The rare and magnificent star that fell.
The briefest of moments, but she was swell.
And in this tale I weave only time will tell.
But oh valentine, how I wish you well!

    ... ha ha. Well I've never been the "assertive-type"... perhaps that's a weakness of mine.

    Great write Timothy!! I loved every word. Had me entranced from the start. Loved the way you captured the girl with even though a fleeting glance, one that will never leave your memory! ;)

    Some people just do that to you ;) Pleased you liked it... this one is a bit more true to me, even if nothing ever happened from seeing her... just a distant vivid memory.

    I'm with Eileen on this one, you do have some romance within you my friend! I really enjoyed reading this incredibly enlightening poem this morning! What a tremendous piece, this valentine didn't know what she was missing as she sped on by! Great Work!!

    Well I try Russell! I try to delve into ALL subjects as much as I can. Your comments are always so encouraging... thanks!

    Awwwwww....and you said you didn't have romance in you! Could have fooled me with this write, my dear! I'm proud of you! :)

    Haha... well I actually have written romantic pieces before. Though I don't typically post 'em just cause I have too many to decide which ones... a weird problem to have, I suppose. Glad YOU liked them... coming from the poet who's all about it I don't take your comment lightly!
