My Valentine

Isn’t she lovely?
My beloved?                                                                                                                  Like a long stemmed rose,
A black rose, rare
Unique;

black rose
black rose

With eyes of the narcissus,
And skin, like the bud of the daffodil;

Her smile, as wide as the sun flower
Warm, tender, like the early morning sun;

Dainty and quaint,
Like the Carla lily;

her scent sweet
Like the honeysuckle
Heady, piquant.

She stands tall like the delphinium;

Demure and with a coy smile
Like the peony.

She is mine,
A vase full of colours,

Splashing the room that is my heart
With beauty
Filing it all with an aroma
Sweet, intoxicating.

    Wow! You ask, ‘isn’t she lovely?’ And I say she’s beautiful. This is such a mindblowing romantic gesture, unlike none other I’ve seen in this part of the Sahara. You, my young lady are mighty blessed and favoured to have a man declare to the whole wide world, just how special you are. God bless you both real good and here’s wishing you a very Happy Valentine and all the happiness it brings.

    The poem’s arresting. The description of your Valentine’s features to different varieties of flowers is very creative and the flower illustrations makes it all the more colourful. Well done! This is really impressive and worthy of emulation, truly.
