Valentine Poem

(Written 14 February 2011)

I walked with you in winter
as willow shed her hair,
we talked and touched with tender sighs
swapped secrets we both shared,
you led me to the water
where taut ripples tumble clear
gave your strength to me
watched me stumble free
pledged your honesty.

Now the willow’s deftly laden
brushed with buds of burning green
and long winter’s deadness ripens
spread on banks of new beginning,
here brown river sings her stillness
as you turn to walk away,
but you’re in my heart
always stay a part
of every bright new day.
