Valentines Day

By 13th February 2010December 9th, 2019No Comments

How the years pass from Season to Season
Romantics remembering chances missed
Wondering if maybe tomorrow will welcome
The start perhaps for a lovers tryst
Will the unknown future be full of suspense
As at a new dawn they pensively wait
Looking to the horizon as the Sun Rises
Eagerly awaiting the Postman’s call at the gate
Wondering perhaps will the mail he delivers
Contain a Card from a loved one so dear
As today is the 14th of February 2010
But it’s St. Valentines Day every year
For Beaux and Belles the length of the land
To send cards and gifts to display their devotion
Perhaps a Single Rose tightly held in the hand
Can bring forth a show of emotion
Followed perhaps by a smile or some tears
Not of sadness but expression of bliss
But if the delivery was made by a special someone
They may be rewarded with a hug and a kiss
For this is the Day traditionally known
For all those young people in love
To demonstrate their feelings for each other
Under the Silvery Moon up above
And perhaps under oath vow to each other
For life they would always be true
Ever hopeful that their dreams would be truly fulfilled
With a Happy Ending as all good Fairy Tales do.
