Valentine’s Day Blues
Tears streamed down his face again
As Valentine’s Day approached;
For on that day a year ago
David’s heart had been crushed.
 
His Valentine had ditched him then
And mated with his foe;
It had taken him a really long time
To recover from this blow.
 
So, David vowed to shun this day
But Fate had other plans,
For he consented to a Blind Date theme:
A dinner and a dance.
 
And there she was in front of him
A damsel blessed with grace;
‘Twas her smile our hero loved the best
It beautified her face.
 
They strolled out together arm in arm,
Two strangers so in love;
He whispered sweet nothings to her
Then presented a clay dove.
 
“Take this bird and remember me,”
David told his Valentine;
“For I shall be forever yours,
And, my dear, you shall be mine.”
