Remember when a Valentine
Was just a name that you just drew,
And you could give that paper heart
To someone you barely knew.
Or you maybe gave your heart
To everybody in your class,
Drawn and cut, with your words,
That were so much fun to pass.
And too, those little candy hearts
That you used to pass around;
Searching colors and the words,
Until that perfect one was found.
And remember that special one,
Who made your heart skip a beat,
Who you gave that special card,
Who gave your heart a special treat.
And remember how easy it was
To tell a classmate, “I Love You!”
Not just three meaningless words,
Cause everyone knew they were true.
Oh, for those days of innocence,
When everything seemed to be just fine;
And you weren’t afraid to ask aloud,
“Will you please be my Valentine?”
