Forever Mine, Valentine

Greetings and Happy Valentine’s Day! I pray you’re enjoying the day with someone special and if not, I hope you’re letting that crush know how you feel (or they’re telling YOU).

If you read my post “Blog #100: Something To Say”, you might remember that I promised to boost my blog frequency as well as its content. One such addition would be songs and poetry. Well, today is a two-fer, meaning I’m blogging twice with posts from the heart (pun intended). 12 hours ago, I posted a little advice on something you need to remember to help keep your relationship strong called “We Need Love, But What Does Love Need?” Definitely check that out, if you haven’t.

And now, I’d like to share a song I wrote my freshman year at Florida A&M University. I serenaded someone with it outside of their dorm with the help of a friend on classical guitar. As you know, folks didn’t run around with video recorders back in the day and the only phones we used had cords (you had to wait in line in the hallway to use them), so sadly, it was never recorded and I never performed this song again (didn’t need to). *wicked giggle*

That being said, enjoy the first of many songs/poems to come…

Forever Mine, Valentine

Written 3/11/1986 – 9:54 p.m. by Kenny “Zoot” Davis

[Verse]
A dozen roses to your place of employ
A box of chocolates, just for you to enjoy
A teddy bear, to show you I care
In my own special way

A card informs you, that when you get home
A bath awaits you, while massaging hands roam
I’ll do my best to grant your every request
On this Valentine’s Day

[Channel]
I promise to give – as long as I live
Everything within my power                                                    
Every second, every minute & hour

                                    If you’ll be my…

[Chorus]
Valentine, Be Forever Mine
Cause I want you and I need you, always to be-
Forever Mine, ‘til I’m “99”                                                       
And everyday, for all time, ‘cause I Love You…

                                                                                     …Valentine

[Verse]
Room lit by candles, dinner’s already done
Champagne and music but we’ve only just begun
You’ve yet to know, how far I will go
Just to see you this way

Sincere affection I’ll give all through the night
And did I mention, as I’m holding you tight
I guarantee, first class to ecstasy
With unlimited stay

[Channel]
I promise to give – as long as I live
Everything within my power
Every second, every minute & hour

                                    If you’ll be my…

[Chorus]
Valentine, Be Forever Mine
Cause I want you and I need you, always to be-
Forever Mine, ‘til I’m “99”
And everyday, for all time, ‘cause I Love You…

                                                                                      …Valentine

[Bridge]
And our love will never perish
Just as long as we (stop to) cherish
The days, the nights, the love                                                

And remain each other’s…

[Chorus]
Valentine, Be Forever Mine
Cause I want you and I need you, always to be
Forever Mine, ‘til I’m “99”
And everyday, for all time…

                                                   …’cause I Love You…

VALENTINE…

                                                                                                   End
