Why today and not tomorrow,
Or perhaps even yesterday
To show your thanks with gestures,
For the love you feel each day?
Surprise me on a midsummer night,
Or a Tuesday, late afternoon
Not with chocolates or with roses,
But with your heart when in full bloom
Show your love not designated,
By a holiday of, store front clues
To remind you that you love me,
As I hope the other days you do
Dear sweet Valentine,
You are a saint
Please don’t get me wrong
But don’t you think it would be nice,
If this day could last,
Without your hint,
Perhaps a whole year long?
