Valentine Day Poem by Isam Hussain


A day when secret love
coyly lifts a corner of her veil
revealing sufficient of her light
to guide lovers to their beloved
with a note of love professed
and a rose kissed by the lover's lips.

But we who have unveiled the face of love
still cherish the Valentine practise
for we know as love grows
new shoots sprout
and rosebuds appear
waiting to unfurl
rejuvenating the mystery of love;
as you and I grow old in years.
