I found it snugly tucked away, Held deep within her private things Hidden under lock and key Was there more than eyes could see A secret love that couldn't be? A cherished thing, .... a poem, of bliss A valentine, that held a kiss Precious keepsake, or was it not?... Was it heartbreak, was it not? Perhaps it's not for me to know She was young, and fair of skin Perhaps,.... and then.., 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 __________________________________________________________________ 1/28/15 For Contest Sponsored By Mystic Rose "Magic Wishes and Valentine Kisses"
