Be My Valentine

It was day like today,
I met a soul so rare to find,
A soul so pure, so beautiful,
Her smile shined like the stars,
A beauty I’d never seen,
Like a fool I fell in love.

Her graceful move,
Melted my heart,
I couldn’t stop staring,
Like a fool so shamelessly,
Once our eyes met,
My entire being became still,
I heard nothing else,
Neither the hoots nor the sirens,
I was stuck in the middle of the road,
Like a fool in love.

Forgive me drivers,
I remember saying,
The she touched my shoulder,
Perhaps to wake me up,
How could I wake?
And end this beautiful dream,
I just had to faint,
And feel her hands,
So smooth, so caring,
If I had to faint every day,
Just to feel this way,
Then let me be,
Like a fool in love.

Then came the best part,
To bring me back to life,
A kiss of life,
Oh! My God,
Don’t let me die,
The kiss, so soft so tender,
I remember saying,
Don’t let me kiss back,
And my eyes opened,
The beauty of the universe was there,
I had her, so close, so near,
She was mine, I was hers,
And I asked her,
Be my valentine?

The moon awaits eagerly in the same pedestal it ignited my passion. What lips, my lips have kissed, are long forgotten. The memories easily quickened as a few puddles along the way I voluntarily stepped in. What arms have lain
