More Than a Valentine

For love, not a Valentine.

Feet dangling from a rock

You’re gentle and kind

Your love is divine

Your breath is what keeps me alive


The touch of your skin

From the brush of your hand

Knots me again and again


When I’m not feeling touchy

It’s your smile that undoes me

And keeps me from drifting away


At times I am distant

But know that I’m listening

To all the words you have to say


So keep this in mind

When I can’t find the time

To express love in all of these ways
