"Be My Valentine"

It seems like I have waited forever
for this special day to come
I have some words to say to you
and I'm sure that you have some.
 
We've known each other for so long
yet time has went swiftly by
I've seen you smile with pure delight
and have also seen you cry.
 
Yes life goes on with our without
us making special plans
it's best that we some patience show
and the rest leave in God's hands.
 
I've loved you from the very start
and more and more each day
it seems that you do feel the same
for you sure do act that way.
 
You are quite special in my life
and with you I love to share
I'm sure that you know but I will remind
that I do truly care.
 
Yet I still have one question
for this sweet love of mine
tell me darling you'll say yes
and be my Valentine!
