I passed a display of valentine cards today
“you make my heart sing and dance”
said a happy dog with a big smile on his face
“a valentine hug just for you”
a pretty blue bird chirped as it sang from a tree
The sentiments I saw today, were not like the ones of yesterday
when we wrote out a poem,
or picked carefully so that the card spoke what we couldn’t say
and of course, always we hoped there would be mail when we got home
Some for sure, were really corny
and some were just so darn mushy
but honey, you and I know,
that even though you said you didn’t care
if a valentine came your way or not
it meant a lot, when someone said they cared.
So guys and gals, you have plenty of time
to find a special card
that says, be my Valentine
Find one that is ” Eggzactly” right for that special friend or friends
and share a smile that will run for miles
saying simply, a heart/hug from me to you….
Love you, each and every one of you.
