Valentines Show many Loves

How many kinds of love are sent in valentines?
The sparkling eyes, warm hearts, as they receive,
Acknowledging friendship or entreating, "Please be mine."

A shy boy or laughing girl joins in the line,
Slips a card in the decorated box. Will they retrieve?
How many kinds of love are sent in valentines?

Expressions meant to win a heart, we still design.
Would you get tangled in the spell they weave?
Acknowledging friendship or entreating, "Please be mine."

God-given love, my chosen one, is thine,
And, guided to you, divinely, I believe.
How many kinds of love are sent in valentines?

Dear grandchild or dear child presents a valentine;
We dignified adults with foolish joy perceive,
Acknowledging parenthood and, "Glad you're mine."

As light and bright as flowers, heady as the wine,
The memories and presence of love, we retrieve.
How many kinds of love are sent in valentines?
Acknowledging God-given love and friendship, mine.
