Valentine’s Day

True love is not about cards and flowers
but, about who has your back in the desperate hours

When real life comes to call
and your the guest of honor at it’s monster’s ball

It’s about having a shoulder on which you can rely
even if it’s just a place to cry

Someone there when things are high and low
and remains no matter how things go

If you found that person you are blessed
for me I continue on that quest

I hope for you love will stay
and you are together-for another Valentine’s Day.
