I know it’s a day early, but here’s a poem I wrote for my late husband to commemorate Valentine’s Day. You can click below to hear me read it and sing a related song. I hope that tomorrow, you do something special with the one you love.
TO MY DEPARTED VALENTINE
Dearest of hearts, most gentle of souls,
you are my only one,
always remembered, never forgotten.
With you, I soared to unimaginable heights.
Now you’re gone—I still fly
for you’ve given me my own wings.
