A pack of pretty greetin’ cards
Is what I remember best
Some covered with lotsa glitter
Out shinin’ all of the rest!

Red hearts in all shapes and sizes
Each printed with sweet little rhymes
Askin’ the ones that received ‘em
If they’d be my Valentine!

It was fun to give mine out first
And, hide in the back to see
When they read those pretty cards
What they would say about me!

I always got a lotta cards too
My friends were so sweet back then
Delightin’ me with what they said
And, signing their names in PEN!

Valentine’s Day was so much fun
When I was near eight or nine.
Each one brings a smile to my face
Those Valentine days of mine!

Now I have a new group of friends
Who mean all the world to me
And as they read these words I write
I’ll be watching quietly.

I hope they’ll think of big red hearts
And, remember those sweet rhymes
Knowing it’s from MY heart I ask
“Won’t YOU be my Valentine???”
