A Single Pear

A Single Pear

Try to peel a single pear
Skin so very thin
Lo to my surprise I see
Natural heart within

Is this valentine of mine
Meant to be for thee
A heart that dearly loves you
Just a sign from me

Maybe it is more than that
Wouldst that I know you
Touch my deepest inner soul
Funny way you do

A single pear speaks to me
In this lovely way
Take a bite, taste my heart
Hear now what I say

A wise old pear tells it all
Listen to her voice
Peel through her delicate skin
To find the only choice

Life with love is meaningful
Now unite the pair
Single pair makes life worthwhile
So thus do you dare?

–Victoria Emmons, 2014
