Coffee for Your Heart- My Valentine

flower girl in the rain

My Valentine

 

By Susie Teramura

 Pink hearts and boxes of

Chocolate squares

Carmel, cherry

Orange cream,

Toasted coconut

And the pecan turtle,

Sit pretty in pleated tissue cups.

 

Dozens of roses, red,

Cards and candy hearts,

And words like,

U R Cute,

Be Mine,

It’s Valetntines,

 

A day to celebrate

Love,

And You,

Because You are

Love,

That’s who You are.

 

And I think about that,

And all the ways You’ve

Romanced me,

Inviting me

To come away with You,

To find my voice,

To dance,

And to live free,

 

You’ve found Your way

Into my deepest parts,

Holding me there

When I’m falling apart,

 

You have

Captured my heart

Tucking it in

Safe, next to Yours

Forever together,

No matter the weather,

You and me,

For all time,

 

Jesus, I am yours

And You are mine-

My very precious

Valentine.

 

 

Song of Songs 2:10

 My beloved spoke and said to me, “Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, come with me.

 

Song of Songs 6:3

I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine;

 

Song of Songs 10:7

I belong to my beloved, and his desire is for me.
