Alas, the hours fast diminish
Towards the time when I must finish
Something that is Valentinish.

All I've written seems so minor.
Wish I could write something finer
Like a proper Valentiner.

But, as I have often hinted,
Every day our love's new-minted.
Today will be Valentinted.

Still, mere words seem most confining.
Rather, I'd be wining, dining,
Loving, for my Valentining.

May all good fortune on us shine,
And I be yours, and you be mine,
Together be one Valentine.

I'm sure she'll love it
it's light hearted and slightly whimsical
We should all write more often to our wives ... after all ... they mean so much to us ... right?

Ted-
ADORABLE
What a wonderful expression of love.
So cutely contrived.
I love the whimsy and the fun.
That's the first rack I check out at
the card shops.
Again ADORABLE

Thank you all for your kind words on this.  I'm glad you liked it and, best of all, my wife Sing-yi DID love it, and of course that makes me happiest.  May you all be as happy.
