A Heart Feels a Heart

would the evening be tolerable or maybe sweet?

He was tall, very handsome and witty,

she was short, delightful and pretty.

Both hearts knew that this was a special date,

for there was an unexpected rise in their heart rate.

Their dates began and so did their love escalate too,

and in time she thought that a commitment was due.

Their romance went on for over a year and a half or more,

and it was the longest she ever dated anyone before.

Her heart felt his heart that would be forever and a day,

his heart felt her heart exactly in the same way.  

He made the commitment that their hearts should be joined together,

and that they marry and live their lives sharing a lasting love forever.

Happy Valentine’s Day.
