Valentine -a poem by bonchance longfall

I will tell you where my soul resides, promise not to tell. Treasure your silence presides, only you know where it dwells. It resides in a place of serenity, where all pain is dispelled. When in times of adversity, it is my peaceful dell. In walls of palladium secure, or in it's deepest well. Loved by a spirit soft and pure, in the heart of my sweet belle. Like a bird warmed in its nest, where it cuddles now entwined. Love flows within the breast, of my loving Valentine. See More

    I will tell you where my soul resides, 

    promise not to tell. 

    Treasure your silence presides, 

    only you know where it dwells. 

    It resides in a place of serenity, 

    where all pain is dispelled. 

    When in times of adversity, 

    it is my peaceful dell. 

    In walls of palladium secure, 

    or in it's deepest well. 

    Loved by a spirit soft and pure, 

    in the heart of my sweet belle. 

    Like a bird warmed in its nest, 

    where it cuddles now…

    My arms may not be the longest, 

    but to embrace you when times are rough, 

    they will always be......long enough. 

    I may not be the toughest guy, 

    but to protect and defend you, 

    I will be always......tough enough. 

    My voice can be too soft at times, 

    come the times to encourage and praise you, 

    I will be......loud enough. 

    My shoulders aren't the broadest, 

    to help you bear your burdens, 

    they will always be......broad enough. 

    My…
