Okay, so here we go…

I’m trying something different

It’s Valentine’s Day, don’t you know?

Not that I’m desperate

Not that I’m lonely


I’m trying my best to be a better me

One who loves the thought of Love

Moving on is still difficult it seems

I just need that little push, a tiny shove

So, here’s to all your hopes and dreams

Now let me get down to business…


Dear all you misters and misses,

Today’s the day you go all out

Remember to give them lots of kisses

Let them cast aside all that doubt

Grant them all their deepest wishes

Bring them flowers and sweets in bulk


Dear all you married folk,

Never lose sight of your other

Keep your love strong like an old oak

They still have mysteries you need to discover

Never let your marriage go up in smoke

Remain bonded, it’s okay to stumble


Dear all you lucky couples,

Give them time, give them love

Someone made them shallow as a puddle

After all, they were all you ever dreamed of

Sure, some days will be a struggle

Become the person they’ll be proud of

Love like we were back in the 80s


Dear all you single ladies,

They’re coming, just you wait

Maybe it’s your “Always Be My Maybe”

They’re gonna take you on that first date

They’ll be your Springtime Daisy

Close your eyes and leave it up to Fate

They’ll love the beauty in your eyes


Dear all you single guys,

Take a chance, ask for that dance

Someone will love when you’re shy

You’ll catch someone’s eyes with a glance

Someone who refuses to say goodbye

Someone who likes your type of romance

They’ll be your Sunshine from the East


Dear all of you who can’t find peace,

Be that Sunflower from the West

Remind them who they released

You’ll find someone to impress

They’ll miss you at least

They’ll love when you’re a mess

They’ll love you every day


Remember to smile on Love’s Day…

Thank you! This one was a challenge for me. I was addressing so many audiences, but I thought it came out okay. I ended up posting it on Facebook on Valentine's this year.
