As Valentines Day approaches near


As Valentines Day approaches so near
Love, love, love is all I seem hear
True it’s intended to celebrate love
With those we have adoration of

But what of the others all alone
Feeling insignificant we condone
Cast aside no thought given
As if persecuted for single livin

Rarely ever would you find that by choice
Simply without anyone with to rejoice
No flowers, candies, or cards bought
In misery depressed alone forgot

Valentines Day is such an injustice
For all the lonely living amongst us
You know such a person we all do
I think they deserve an I LOVE YOU

And so what I have been thinking was
Valentines Day should equal HUGS
Phone calls are not enough
To make someone feel love

Valentines Day should represent care
Please continue to call if you can’t be there
But when encountering others on that day
HUGS for all is what I say

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --
The finger-points look through like rosy blooms:
Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
