“A Valentine Wish” (an original poem)

“A Valentine Wish”

(an original poem)


Is love but a moment

remembered once a year,

scarlet hearts

cut and given?


Then I fear she will elude me —

as a wisp o’ wind —

felt now, soon forgotten.


But if love is a moment

born and forever sustained,

two hearts of flesh

etched with pain,

then joy is my lot.


— (c) Thomas C. Webber

February 1989



This is a poem I wrote when my wife Barb and I celebrated our first Valentine’s day as a married couple, way back in 1989. Hope you enjoyed it!

    This is lovely, you should make it into a song.

      Frannie: Thank you so muchfor your encouragement. I will seriously look into seeing if I can’t shape this into a song.
