My Sweet’, ‘tis time again to say my love
For you: the happiest of Valentine’s
I wish for you—my all, my joy, my “dove.”
Lovebirds are doves, you see, and you are mine!
May peace and joy and love shine all the year
On you and me. A pair of doves we make
In truth, my Sweet’, my all, my love, my Dear.
On St. Val’s Day we will enjoy a cake!
‘Tis true that sweets you love, my Sweet’ you are.
‘Tis good to know how pleas’d ye be with me.
I like to hear, “I love you true”—just bar
The door to other loves—then me you see!
I love thee true in years of time, us two;
I love thee true for sure, my Sweet’, n’er rue!
