Each Day is Valentine's Day



 Invitation to Love


Come when the nights are bright with stars
Or come when the moon is mellow;
Come when the sun his golden bars
Drops on the hay-field yellow.
Come in the twilight soft and gray,
Come in the night or come in the day,
Come, O love, whene’er you may,
And you are welcome, welcome.


You are sweet, O Love, dear Love,
You are soft as the nesting dove.
Come to my heart and bring it to rest
As the bird flies home to its welcome nest.


Come when my heart is full of grief
Or when my heart is merry;
Come with the falling of the leaf
Or with the redd’ning cherry.
Come when the year’s first blossom blows,
Come when the summer gleams and glows,
Come with the winter’s drifting snows,
And you are welcome, welcome.


Paul Laurence Dunbar

  5. Thanks for sharing the poem Han...never read it before. Love the song...Barbra Streisand is one of my favorite singers and she does this song so well. The title of your post is what my Matthew used to say to me...that every day with me was Valentine's day. Hope you and Wanita had a lovely Valentine's celebration.

    Hugs and Blessings...
