My Perfect Valentine

Observing the stars, You came into mind,
I thought about your love for me, It’s so fine.
Whenever you hug me, Whenever you’re there,
I feel so secure, I know you really care.
At times we’re together, Not knowing what to say,
All we do is hold hands, Then our love lights the way.
There are instances we argue, But time’s granted to ponder,
Then we work things out, It makes our love stronger.
I’ve nothing to worry about, Gone are moments, I thought we’d part,
Thinking of you makes me smile, You’ll forever be in my heart.

The Legend of Valentine´s Day

Saint Valentine’s Day, also known as Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is observed on February 14th each year. It is celebrated in many countries around the world, although it remains a working day in most of them.

Several stories were invented for the various Valentines that belonged to February 14.

According to the legend he was imprisoned for performing weddings for soldiers who were forbidden to marry and for ministering to Christians, who were persecuted under the Roman Empire. During his imprisonment, he healed the daughter of his jailer, Asterius.  Before his execution he wrote her a letter signed “Your Valentine” as a farewell.

In Brazil, the Dia de São Valentim is recognized on June 12.
