Saint Valentine's Day My Present Love by Yolanda Beukes

My Dear Valentine. Copyright by Yolanda Beukes

I’m from South Africa in a small town called Mahikeng in the North West Province. I was born in Keimoes in the Northern Cape (South Africa). Born 12 April 1983, Yolanda Leatitia Sheldon and married Johnathon Beukes on 12 April 2008 on my birthday. He proposed to me 14 February 2007 on valentines day so this poem is for him. We have one son his name is Carlyle Jesse Beukes, 2 years old. I write English and Afrikaans poems, this is something most people don’t know about me. Whatever emotion I go through good or bad, love or sad I write.

My Dear Valentine,

might your mind be wondered back in time

where moonlight stars filled music sky

embracing me with sweet romance

that magic moment loving place.

Take back in time my present love

you held my hand, my mind, my heart

my being belonged to you at last

the day you bend your knee and asked.

My Valentine hold on to me

the future bright we both shall see

in good, in bad, in storms to come

not counting what has all been done.

My Valentine you are each day

My Johnathon Beukes in everyway.

    Very beautiful. Hope all couples could stay in love forever. Love gives us inspiration and helps us to keep going ahead in life. Without love, its all useless. Hope I’ll find mine soon.
