Be my Valentine: What does that mean?
Each of us must walk through life alone,
More isolated than we could have known,
Yet more saddened than we could have seen.
Valentines are from beyond that dream,
Are like a sunrise on a world of stone,
Letting us be more than on our own,
Embracing us with love, that life redeems.
No way but through loving might we give
The freedom of our being to another.
In such a sacrifice we hope to live
Needing what our love supplies us with,
Even as we bind our lives together.
