You handed me a lily pink
its center softly yellow
and kissed me with a passion young,
it made me stop and think.
your lips alone,
forever promised me,
and not in just one special way
are you my valentine,
for twenty-three amazing years
and each and every day.

Imaginary Garden with Real Toads "Fireblossom Friday - Goes Old School" using iambs and a strict line and syllable count! 3 stanzas of four lines each (8686) (1416) (8686) but the best part for ME is I didn't have to rhyme (thank you, Fireblossom!)
Confession: the last line of the second stanza is not an iamb... how many Hail Marys, Fireblossom? :) (HEY- I fixed it!! hooray - so now I hope Galen shows some mercy:)
And since I have already sinned, I am also linking this up with Friday Flash 55 (I am a few words short... how many "Our Fathers", G-Man? :)
