Love Commandments

Love Commandments

The paper is old, faded and worn  It was found in an old box with some photos  The photos were scenery and people unknown, judging by the clothing I’d say in the 40’s  The text was typewriter typed  The folds in the paper created holes, it’s been folded and unfolded many times I’m sure  I can picture a young woman reading and laughing, perhaps before her beau is off to war It’s clever and shows signs of respect, from an era long gone, but romantic and kind Perhaps this Valentine spirit will warm your heart,too The Ten... read more
