A Promise Walk Valentine

A Promise Walk Valentine…


February 14, 2011 Roses are red,



Our intentions are true.



We’ll overcome preeclampsia



And HELLP syndrome too.







Did any of us think



Back at cupid’s first shot



A healthy pregnancy



Would be so hard sought?







As the old saying goes,



First often comes love,



Then perhaps marriage,



But it’s simply not right



Due to NICU or loss



Going home with an empty baby carriage.







The Promise Walks stride



To make cupid’s promise whole.



Healthy babies and mommies



Our one and perfect goal.







So put down that chocolate,



And set aside those roses.



Take a seat at that computer



And answer the question each of us poses.







How can we each end preeclampsia?



What can we do?



Feel empowered! Look in the mirror.



The answer is you!







Take a moment to register



It’s a strong, positive step.



Come walk with us please.



Help fulfill a Promise kept.







Come May, we’ll be heard



From far and from wide



We’ll honor those survivors



And remember those who have died.







So, this Valentine’s Day



Do something so sweet



Register, donate, maybe even tweet



These simple little things, they are the keys



Together, we’ll do it, we’ll end this awful disease.
