Robbie, My Forever Valentine


For sixteen happy, love-filled years,
You were my Valentine;
I was so blessed to have you here—
Could scarce believe you mine!

For I had waited sixteen years
Until you came to earth—
Carried you for nine full months
And then I gave you birth.

And, oh! The first time I held you
And looked into your eyes;
You had me hooked right from the start;
You had me mesmerized!

I loved the years you were with us,
I loved your dazzling smile;
I just didn’t know, when you first came,
You could only stay a while.

And now you’ve gone back to the sky
Where you first had your start,
But always you’ll be with me, son,
You live within my heart.

For sixteen, loving, fun-filled years,
You were my Valentine;
And always I will have your heart,
As I know you have mine.

Love always and forever,
Mom
