A Valentine Poem and Song

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.



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.
