A tornado warning came upon a sunny day While rushing home I saw a child staring down a storm drain I stopped and asked what do you see I see my heart drifting away I received my boyfriends heart on this Valentines day As I was walking home the wind blew it away I ran to catch it and it fell into the rushing water by the curb I went to grab it but the storm drain took my heart away Please help me find this heart for without it mine will be broken I turned my yellow flashing lights on and radioed for help We removed the drain cover and I climbed into the drain Praying we could find this little girls heart today I received a call on the radio about a block away, we found it he said Well bring it here we haven’t much time the storm is on it's way As he pulled up in his yellow city truck with yellow lights flashing A small boy walked over and said: You have not lost your heart for I am standing right here This storm drain could never take away our Valentine Love this way He placed a tiny candy heart into her hand that read Be Mine, As tears of joy ran down her face a kiss on his cheek she gave I will always be your Valentine Contest: Down the storm drain gone forever Sponsored by: Eve Roper Dated Created: 02/25/2019
