Whether enfolded luxuriously in silver or gold

Or simply adorned in white or brown wrapper

Your bittersweet smoothness is rich and bold

Unveiling a treasure as I gently peel open the paper

I slowly break off a small square to eat

And I savor it as it melts slowly on my tongue

There is no substitute for this small indulgence

I never tire of this simple yet timeless treat

It’s for everyone around, the old and the young

Oh Chocolate!  Be my valentine, and visit me in abundance
