For My Valentine

darlin'Roger and Lani Wedding Portrait

I don't need to emerge from

darkened theater with

owl eyes wide and luminous

to know

without you

my world would be

flat

and

one-dimensional

 

you bring out

the sun

the stars

and

under covers

in deep dark

your smile is

the moon, full and kind-hearted

 

Open any book

any chapter of my life

and you will find

our history is the bookmark

and

your love is the starting place

 

Notes: 

R, I'm so glad you picked me to be your valentine - thank you
