Set Me as a Seal Upon Your Heart: Poems for Valentine’s Day

heart wall

Happy Valentine’s Day! It’s a great honour to welcome Marcie Watson who has written these poems for Valentine’s Day.

WHERE YOU ARE

If each moment I saw a cloudless sky,

Would it paint me a picture

Of you and I?

The times we’re together,

Moments we are apart

You replace all my worries,

And silence my heart

To know you’re beside me,

each path that I go

Faith will bind us tightly,

and strengthen all that we know

In this future together,

this relationship so dear

that has been built up by love,

though each moment you’re near

Your picture hasn’t faded,

Your touch is so clear

I just want to be with you,

through our golden years

And to be the one to make you happy,

the one to shine life’s stars

the one who wants to hold you,

and be where you are

Often we find them when we least expect

Sparking real curiosity, the memory of their message speaks,

We suddenly remember that moment in time, which makes us complete

Is this a sign, was it part of God’s plan for today,

In this rusty old shoebox with purpose to save

Were these words for your loved one, you wanted to say

Such letters take a person back to that place and time,

So young in love that the truth blesses your soul, bringing tears to your eyes

Dreams were swept up in emotion; love was in each word and embrace

History was being written between these two,

With letters one couldn’t replace

As you look to the present, and bring yourself back,

You realize the journey embarked together

And the words preserved and kept

But one thing remains which beats upon your heart

You have now built a life together with no reason to part

So I thank you for this letter, my love of my life,

I promise you today, I’ll soon reply

And I’ll only ask you sincerely for one gentle kiss,

To seal the agreement that you are loved and missed

To remind you that this letter holds beauty and soul

Your words to me and mine not to let go

So let’s revisit these again when we are very old…

Together, let’s take in the moment these love letters hold.

Heart Red Velvet Cake

WHAT I WOULD DO…

My heart seems to know,

Of what I would do

If you needed my love,

I would give it to you

If you wanted the world,

In the palm of your hand

I’d bring it to you

All oceans and land

If you wanted to fly,

I would give you my wings

If you were ever afraid

To you I would sing

If you wanted to climb,

A mountain steep and tall

I would always want to be there,

To catch you if you fall

If you needed just a shoulder

To deeply cry upon,

I would plan to stay with you,

Even until dawn

If you needed someone special,

To listen to your dreams,

I’d be there to follow them,

Just like a winding stream

If you chose to study the earth,

It’s dimensions so afar,

I’d be a poet just to inspire,

I’d travel with you to reach the stars

If there was any wish,

I would give it right to you,

For anything you ask,

You know what I would do.

 

LOVE LETTERS
Often we find them when we least expect

Old letters lie timeless, hidden but kept

Sparking real curiosity, the memory of their message speaks,

We suddenly remember that moment in time, which makes us complete

Is this a sign, was it part of God’s plan for today,

In this rusty old shoebox with purpose to save

Were these words for your loved one, you wanted to say

Such letters take a person back to that place and time,

So young in love that the truth blesses your soul, bringing tears to your eyes

Dreams were swept up in emotion; love was in each word and embrace

History was being written between these two,

With letters one couldn’t replace

As you look to the present, and bring yourself back,

You realize the journey embarked together

And the words preserved and kept

But one thing remains which beats upon your heart

You have now built a life together with no reason to part

So I thank you for this letter, my love of my life,

I promise you today, I’ll soon reply

And I’ll only ask you sincerely for one gentle kiss,

To seal the agreement that you are loved and missed

To remind you that this letter holds beauty and soul

Your words to me and mine not to let go

So let’s revisit these again when we are very old…

Together, let’s take in the moment these love letters hold.
