An evening with my sweetheart

My Perfect Valentine

by Newkidintown34

There are flowers on the table

The restaurant lights are dim

I read the fine wine's label

then gaze back up at him

We'd been walking in the sunshine

'til it sank beneath the seas

He'd placed his jacket on my shoulders

to block the chilly evening breeze

I hand his jacket back now

It's his favorite shade of blue

He smiles as he takes it

whispering softly, "I love you"

He reaches his hands toward me

Just to touch them is a thrill

The waitress takes our order

and our empty glasses fill

Looking deep into my eyes

he tells me he has missed me

I think oh how much I love him

and the first time that he kissed me

Sometimes it feels like in the movies

Almost too good to be true

He swears he'll stay with me forever

Although our love is still quite new

Delicious odors flare our nostrils

Wafting to us through the air

Yet I am barely even hungry

As I watch him sitting there

This fine evening won't be over

though we talk and laugh and dine

'til I'm curled up beneath the covers

with my perfect Valentine.
