Please can you help find a poem for my old Mum.
It starts 'When I was young and in my prime .... . the next line ends in ... Valentine but that's all she can remember.

Any help appreciated - thanks

" When I was young and in my prime,
I was kissing the girls the most of my time,
And if any girl here thinks she can fool me,
She '11 find me as young as I used to be."

The Old Man - Eugene Field.

Accept, dear girl, this little token.
And, if between the lines you seek.
You '11 find the love I 've often spoken
The love my dying lips shall speak.

Our little ones are making merry
'er am'rous ditties rhymed in jest,
But in these words (though awkward very)
The genuine article 's expressed.

You are as fair and sweet and tender.
Dear brown-eyed little sweetheart mine.
As when, a callow youth and slender,
I asked to be your Valentine.

A Valentine to my wife - Eugene Field
