Last week was a Valentine written for our three beautiful daughters.This week is a Valentine written for my beautiful wife.
By David De Jong
How I envy your time and particular place,
Caressing my love’s neck and silken face.
Your arms gently flowing, yet nestled tight,
All her allure and constant splendor in your sight.
She carries you slipped neatly beneath long golden hair,
Turning other’s haphazard glances powerless, fixed into stare.
Each breath whispers, of her enchanting perfume.
Everyone’s jealous of your place in the room.
Emerald in her eyes, embellishes your trim,
Soft, sleek, fully complete, yet supremely slim.
Glistening beads, adorning your weaves,
Match singing charms, beneath her sleeves.
Your tinsel strings shine, but fail to compare,
With gold and silver hues, iridescent in her hair.
Shield her from relentless rays of the sun.
Brighten her smile, with splashing colors of fun.
Keep her warm as the cold winds blow.
Compliment her beauty, make her glow.
Take care of my love, ever so sweet,
Or I shall cast you down at my feet.
