Thank You Linda Rice
X's and O's, glitter and lace,
sweet sticky candy all over your face,
These are the images that come to mind,
When I hear the word Valentine.
Some will get a dozen roses,
Maybe a diamond ring
Bittersweet memories of happier days,
Is what my Valentine brings..
I see you sitting at the table,
Working so very hard,
Making a treasure so precious to me,
A little handmade card.
Coming into my room in the morning,
With pillows to put under my head,
Then burnt toast and orange juice,
A wonderful breakfast in bed.
Then you got older, these things werent enough
You wanted to get me more
You saved your allowance for weeks
To buy me a gift from the store,
The day before Valentines day,
Off you went on your bike,
You found a set of 3 porcelain angels,
Something you knew I would like
I'll cherish these beautiful memories,
And keep them fresh in my mind
Whatever else life brings, you'l be
My Forever Valentine
In loving memory of Matthew and all of his angel friends
