Legend of the Valentine



The legend says St. Valentine
Was in a prison cell ...
Thinking of his little flock
He had always loved so well.

Divider


And wanting to assure them
Of his friendship and his love ...
He picked a bunch of violets
And sent them by a dove.

Divider


And on the violets' leaves
He pierced these lines divine ...
That simply said, "I Love You,"
And "I'm your Valentine!"

Divider


So through the years that followed
From that day unto this ...
Folks still send messages of love
And seal them with a kiss.

Divider


Because a Saint in prison
Reached through prison bars one day,
And picked a bunch of violets
And sent them out to say ...
That faith and love can triumph
No matter where you are
For faith and love are greater
Than the strongest prison bar.
