Happy Valentine's Day by Tom Chapman

 

The oldest known valentine still in existence today was a poem written in 1415 by Charles, Duke of Orleans, to his wife while he was imprisoned in the Tower of London following his capture at the Battle of Agincourt. (The greeting is now part of the manuscript collection of the British Library in London, England.) Several years later it is believed that King Henry V hired a writer named John Lydgate to compose a valentine note to Catherine of Valois.

So now I too shall write a little poem to express my Valentine's Day thoughts.

Happy Valentine's Day!

You may think I have known many women
But really it's just a few,
There was that first one when I was seven
Oh her eyes were blue!

And then there was Miss Abernathy
My fifth grade teacher who was tall,
I loved the way she crossed her legs,
But her breasts were a bit too small.

Lori wanted my high school senior ring
I played first team football you should know,
But when I wanted the university
She just let me go.

There were girls in college as I recall
The good old days say I,
But it was the Cuban there who captured me,
While two sons and 20 years went by.

Then I was single for some time
A womanizer she would say,
But I don't think she was right about me
Otherwise I would not be lonely every day.

Then I said I will love once more
And for another decade I did,
But this time she was Ukrainian
And I also loved her kid.

So now I am sixty
And for five years I am alone,
But perhaps there will be one more love
In my life before I go home.

There would not even be a Valentine's Day
Were it not for God above,
He wraps His arms around me,
And I remember that "God is love!"
