I’d like to turn the 'golden leaves
of time' back, just awhile,
And see the sparkle in your eyes; once
again, that fetching smile.
I’d like to hear the lilting voice,
the laughter and the song.
I think I’d watch and listen ... all
The years have changed my Valentine,
the color of her hair.
The years have touched the tender
skin, once so light and fair.
But deep within the heart of hearts,
love’s still abiding strong.
Some things are still resilient ...
all life long.
And there’s a Love we’ve shared
together, each day of our lives.
It seems to be so timeless and to our
While muscles, in our tired old
frames, are weakened by the years,
God’s love only grows stronger through
the trials and the tears.
Oh, Love that will not, cannot, let us
go a mile alone,
Stay by us while Your Valentines walk
that last mile home;
Faithful, true, and beautiful with
wonderful surprise ~
A Valentine of Love that leads us ever
upward to the skies!
