Send Her a Valentine
Poet: Edgar A. Guest

Send her a valentine to say
You love her in the same old way.
Just drop the long familiar ways
And live again the old-time days
When love was new and youth was bright
And all was laughter and delight,
And treat her as you would if she
Were still the girl that used to be.

Pretend that all the years have passed
Without one cold and wintry blast;
That you are coming still to woo
Your sweetheart as you used to do;
Forget that you have walked along
The paths of life where right and wrong
And joy and grief in battle are,
And play the heart without a scar.

Be what you were when youth was fine
And send to her a valentine;
Forget the burdens and the woe
That have been given you to know
And to the wife, so fond and true,
The pledges of the past renew
'Twill cure her life of every ill
To find that you're her sweetheart still.

"Send her a valentine to say you love her in the same old way."
Edgar A. Guest

Sometimes as the years go by we don't do the special things we use to do when our relationships were new. Taking the time to send a valentine card is a small thing to do but can have lasting meaning.

When love was new and youth was bright and all was laughter and delight"
Edgar A. Guest

Remember back to when you first feel in love. The world was a different place. Day to day life has a way of turning that special relationship into something that you take for granted, and challenges and responsibilities that we all
 face take away the laughter and the delight.  We have to consciously keep the romance alive in our relationships, making time for laughter and delight, never losing that feeling.
