Romantic Valentine's Day Poem

A Romantic Valentine

I wrote this valentine for a long-time friend who became my lover. She is such a wonderful, caring, and sensitive person who sadly lost her mother last year. As much as I wanted to be there for her, I knew I could not ease her grief. I have never felt so helpless. So this last Valentine's Day, I wanted her to know she would never be alone and that I would always be there for her with a heartfelt, simplistic poem. I hope it can be enjoyed for its personal sentiment if not its literary quality.

My Promise

If you were my rose, then I'd be your sun,
painting you rainbows when the rains come.
I'd change my orbit to banish the night,
as to keep you in my nurturing light.

If you were my world, then I'd be your moon,
your silent protector, a night-light in the gloom.
Our fates intertwined, two bodies in motion
through time and space, our dance of devotion.

If you were my island, then I'd be your sea,
caressing your shores, soft and gentle I'd be.
My tidal embrace would leave gifts on your sands,
but by current and storm, I'd ward your gentle lands.

If you were love's promise, then I would be time,
your constant companion till stars align.
And though we are mere mortals, true love is divine,
and my devotion eternal, to my one valentine.
