VALENTINE TO MOTHER
By Berton Brafey.
Not to Youth and cheeks or rose
Are these verses I compose,
No alluring maid I love
Is it I am singing of,
But of one whose love and faith
Follow me through ill and scathe,
One whose tenderness and calm
Soothe my every wound with
Who would suffer silently
Bitter pain and woe for me
Asking as reward to know
Only she had helped me so.
Gray she is and gently wise,
Mirth and knowledge in her eyes,
Youth within her heart lives still
As he has and always will.
Dearest lady, fond and true,
Here's a Valentine -to you
Sweetheart, evermore the -same,
Since the day when first I came,
So forever, Mother mine,
Ybu shall be my Valentine !
