What’s Valentine’s Day for?

Sure she’s there

yesterday, today, tomorrow

but don’t forget

love needs fuel:

a compliment

a coffee

a night out

a gift of time

a smile

a kiss.

She needs to know

every day

that you would do it all over again

that she’s your only love,

that she makes you a better man.

What’s Valentine’s Day for?

Sure he’s there

yesterday, today, tomorrow

but don’t forget

love needs fuel:

a compliment

a coffee

a night out

a gift of time

a smile

a kiss.

He needs to know

every day

that you would do it all over again

that he’s your only love,

that he makes you a better woman.

Valentine’s Day is just a day,

but it’s  day to remind you

that you shouldn’t take you lover

for granted.

If you don’t want to buy expensive

flowers and heart shaped boxes

of bad chocolate on February 14th,

pick dandelions and find good chocolate

every day.

    As I tell my lovely wife: Everyday should be Valentine’s Day.

    • Or if not, random days! 🙂

      When my kids were little, I’d walk into the house and randomly shout out, “It’s I love my kids day!” and they’d come screaming down to the door because that meant there was an unexpected treat in store. Perhaps a little toy for each, or doughnuts, or whatever. It only happened a couple of times a year. They loved it. 🙂

    How about “Oh, today is Valentine’s Day, that’s the day I don’t bring you coffee in bed, so you will really appreciate it the remaining 364 days”.

    Dandelion bouquet, that’s my favourite, however it is not the time of year, Mrs Bird!

    Here’s a little something, you have an unending beautiful mystic smile! Which complements your eyes!
