Valentine Memories

Valentine Memories

Beneath the glue and erasure marks,
the sentiment pops right through.
One little homemade card
with a red heart, reading, "I love you."

I received such valentine messages as,
"Mommy, I trust you."
"Mommy, I love you."
"Mommy you are my friend."
"I love you very, very, much."
And from one little son,
To Mom, love you! Kiss,kiss.
May I marry you?"

Surely,  one could search
the world over and never
find a store that sold
a Valentine worth treasuring
like the ones made by
the hands of a small child.

Each Valentine with a red
cardboard heart and an
abundance of white glue
holds a special place in my heart
God's love shone through
my children as they presented
their expressions of love.
And...they will last forever in my
memories and my heart."
