Special memories of you


Though you're no longer with me

It doesn't mean that I, can't think

About you sometimes, you're still

My Valentine. Get the dinner table

Ready for a special meal for two

Special soft light, special music

Special memories of you


My heart can't wait till Tuesday

I've a menu on my mind, A

Ballotine of ham hock, a candied

Walnut side. Braised shoulder loin

Of lamb for mains, peas, rosemary

Lamb ju, a champagne sorbet flute

On ice and petit fours for two


The table's set for nine o'clock, I'll

Wear my cummerbund, a white tie

Seems appropriate for Valentines

In love. We'll eat and drink and do

The things we once enjoyed so

Much and when the clock strikes

1am - I'll reluctantly wake up
