Valentine’s Day


Roses are red

Violets are blue

Did you know

That I love you?

Remember saying this when you were a young girl, waiting to fall in love?

The next poem below is one that I wrote for all of the rest who know what it is like to be alone on the Lover’s day of the year.

Valentine’s Day

I dreamed of you for many years

You broke my heart and I shed tears

My heart is broken yet today

When Jesus took you far away

Then there was the one man of all

I never met him but I didn’t  fall

Woman and woman, man and man

Love feels the same in love’s plan

But because I have these feelings deep

And I don’t have a mate with me to see

I think that I will pass on cards

I think I will push this holiday far

To all those lucky enough to be

In a relationship for all the world to see

I wish you Happy Valentine’s day

I hope you are happy in every way.
