No Ordinary Valentine

By Kelly Roper

This is not what it appears to be -
Just an ordinary valentine.
This poem I write to you
Contains the contents of this heart of mine.

I've never felt for another girl
The things I feel for you.
I've never met another woman
Who could change my entire world view.

But falling in love with you has totally
Opened up my eyes.
Now my days are filled with wonder,
And it's really no surprise.

Love makes even ordinary things
Seem so bright and new.
And that's why I'm so thankful to share
This Valentine's Day with you.

No Other Man...

By Kelly Roper

No other man thrills me when he walks in the room.
No other man draws my attention and holds it captive.
No other man reflects my ideal of human beauty,
And no other man is as beautiful inside and out.
No other man could ever turn me away from you.
No other man could ever be my valentine except you.

The Man I Love

By Kelly Roper

The man I love is
Patient beyond measure,
Faithful beyond a doubt,
And simply a treasure.

The man I love is
A very kind person.
He always speaks his truth,
Without hurting anyone.

The man I love is
Fair and strong,
The kind of man they'd write about
In the perfect romantic song.

The man I love is
One I'm sure loves me too.
I'm speaking to him right now.
Yes my dear, that man is you.
