School Valentine

George Hodan

For D.J. - My forever Valentine 

School Valentine

I remember those days of Valentines
in school
tiny paper cards
drawn from a hat
on teachers’ desk
as apart from love
as anything could be
and yet set each small
heart pounding
each small hand trembling
as we waited our turn
to be called and pick
our love
signed Yours Truly
in large
block letters
and now there is 
and only you - inscribed
forever with a smile
picked and signed 
with a steady hand
