St Valentines Day

love blooms here
in a special reserved place

etched in my mind
your heartbeat
those days we shared the same bed

Those places do get etched in ones mind, Gillena. I kinda shiver when I think about things like that. Etched in my mind.
BTW, I missed you yesterday, you missed me. Happy Birthday!!!

True, abrupt dear etched image. I read it forward and back and so it strummed the tunes in my heart. Thank you.
