I love you all through February,
Not just on Valentine's Day;

Appear in the midst of May.

I adore you in the summer,
When the air is filled with heat;
Without you in my life each day,

Feelings of hunger that couldn't be met,
Like feelings that come when I see yummy pies, 
Well, I get those feelings when I look in your eyes.

The thought of your lips makes my mouth start to water, 
'Cause they remind me of barbecue more than they oughter. 
Your skin, your hair, and the rest of you brings
Thoughts of chocolate chip cookies and other good things.

When you're near you provide scrumptious food for my soul. 
You nourish me, sweetheart; You make me whole. 
Keep me satisfied, stay close or I'll pine. 
I sure get hungry thinking of you, Valentine!

Be mine, and let's nourish each other!

I Corinthians 13

Valentine's Day is a day of love,
For showing that we care,
And if we read the Bible,
God describes love there:

If we speak like celestial angels
From heaven up above,
All our words mean nothing
If we don't have Christian love.

Love is patient, love is kind;
It doesn't brag or boast;
Love conquers pride and envy;
It is never self-engrossed.

Love is not rude or angry;
Forgiveness counters wrong;
Love stays away from evil;
It sings a truthful song.

Love is full of trust and hope;
It always perseveres;
Love never fails; It's faithful;
To the Bible it adheres.

And if you give this kind of love
To your special Valentine,
You'll be loving right in harmony
With God's own sweet design.
