Valentine's Day

"Love our dear Valentine" we always say,
whenever we think of Valentine's Day.

Big hugs and kisses and also some fun -
is love's expression for our 'special one'.
Flowers, dinner, and maybe some wine -
as we treat our 'sweethearts' especially fine.

But oh, long ago on one fateful day -
when we threw our greatest of loves away -

Hatred surpassed all the love we had won -
as hugs were not there when the nailing begun.
Thorns replaced flowers, and then sour wine -
and that's how we treated our Lord divine."

Love our dear Valentine" we always say,
but how do we love the Savior today?

louis gander,  

My computer is being fixed and for some reason I could not vote or leave comments on a poem earlier today with this replacement. I enjoy reading poetry by others and if I said anything to offend anyone I deeply apologize. I hold great respect for all who write honestly from their heart. Have a great weekend all... :) ~louis

louis gander,  

Thank you Yehoshua, Jaro and Toufiq for your kind comments. John 15:13-14 is a beautiful scripture. I did not know that Valentine's Day was a holiday in any other country. It's nice to know Jaro. And Toufiq, thank you again as well. Often in my poetry, I try to draw a contrast between our earthly experiences in comparison to our spiritual ones... in this case, how we treat our friends and how we live for Jesus. Thank you all again.
