A Valentine Road Race
Death, you have an ugly face;
My valentine’s is so much prettier!
Damn you, I’ll beat you in a race,
To my valentines bed,
To bring about some grace
For sure, my love for my love will best you
I am ahead, no time to rest
My heart beats for
My dying valentine
Before I reach you
I beseech you
I see you in a ring of fire,
although things seem so dire
as I look into your fevered eyes
so bright and tired
I see you awake, my tigress
Yes, still alive!
I am in time
To give you my love, my sweet valentine.
Let’s have a celebration, some sunshine
and forget this hurtful idea of funeral conflagration!
We can burn in flames of a different ilk,
What the hell,
Just give me a rebel yell!
So I know that you feel the glow,
despite this desperate show!
