So it's Valentine's Day. After a quick search, I appear to have written 6 poems with " Valentine" in either the title or the text.
Here is my favourite...

The Messiah’s pardon for Valentines days to come.

Lay not down, thy life for me
thy blood thou shalt not spill
each perfect precious drop, you see
must cherished be until

until the day we both shall meet
beneath my fathers gaze
upon that day we both shall greet
with honour, love and praise

to welcome in the purest dawn
to warm the hearts untold
all trace of sin will then be gone
all souls will shine as gold

the day is nigh, my spirits high
the calf is plump and fat
so lay not down thy life for me
you stupid little twat.
