A Valentine Song and Poem by Abbie Johnson Taylor

I know it’s a day early, but here’s a poem I wrote for my late husband to commemorate Valentine’s Day. You can click on the title to hear me read it and sing a related song. I hope that tomorrow, you do something special with the one you love.

***

TO MY DEPARTED VALENTINE

 

 

Dearest of hearts, most gentle of souls,

you are my only one,

always remembered, never forgotten.

 

With you, I soared to unimaginable heights.

Now you’re gone—I still fly

for you’ve given me my own wings.
