Forty-four Valentines

Forty-four valentines sent on this day
to the same person one love to stay
my best friend and soulmate hip hip hooray
married for forty-three years

Forty-four valentines all made by hand
with words I have crafted, all of them planned
to repeat oft the promise sealed with gold band
throughout all the joy and the tears

Forty-four valentines sent here to you
my one love my constant my true upon true
with many more coming before we are through
this one's for you with three cheers
