When Hopeful Evening Takes The Day

From my mind's eye
I cannot chase
The soft gentle image
 Of that classic face
When hopeful evening
 Takes the day
Red brown hair
Catches moonlight
Every ray
Set reservations aside
Let fate rule tomorrow
Let me for a life time
Your sweet love borrow
Happy Valentine's day my love...

Also, Happy Valentine's Day to all my lovely blogging friends out there!
