Story Time Friday – It’s Valentine’s Day…Again

Story Time Friday Banner

fancy lineresizeHere’s another older poem. It’s also a week “late” for Valentine’s Day, but as you’ll see from reading this one, does it really matter? Not really. We can still enjoy things even when it’s not the specific day. I wrote this back in 2010, but my feelings toward holidays haven’t changed much I think.

Hope you enjoy this second week of V-Day “celebration” on Story Time Friday. And hope you’re enjoying the series so far. I’m surprised I’ve gone this long without missing a week…even if I’m pulling out old work to get it done, haha.

P.S. Happy Valentine’s Day (For Those Who Can’t Resist)

by Robert Zimmermann

It’s a commercial affair:

“Come get your cards.
Come buy flowers and bears!

“Be mine!
Kiss me!
Marry me!
Sweetheart!”

Money greed sucking joy,
taking the meaning out of Love.
L.O.V.E.
It’s not the same for you and me.

Go buy our their stock of cards,
hearts of chocolate,
and the jewelry stores.
I’ll be here laughing,
at least to myself,
since my Love knows how I feel
all year long.
She needs no reminder
on one specific day.

Be random.
Kiss daily.
Feed her sweet tooth
(at any time,
not just with candy hearts.)

– P.S. Happy Valentine’s Day
