Un bacio con una rosa…


Remember when a Valentine

Was just a name that you just drew

And you could give that Paper Heart

To someone you barely knew.

Or you maybe gave your Heart

To everybody in your Class

Drawn and cut, with Your Words

That were so much Fun to pass.

And too, those little Candy Hearts

That you used to pass around

Searching Colors and the Words

Until that Perfect One was found.

And remember that Special One

Who made your Heart skip a beat

Who you gave that Special Card

Who gave your Heart a Special Treat.

And remember how easy it was

To tell a Classmate, “I Love You!”

Not just three meaningless words

Cause everyone knew they were True.

Oh, for those Days of Innocence

When everything seemed to be Just Fine

And you werent afraid to ask aloud,

“Will you please be my Valentine?”
