Roses are red and violets are blue
Garlic can stink and valentine’s day too
Red flowers and chocolates, some trinkets divine
I have no care for them, my love they don’t define.
A bunch of flowers that shall not last
Some shed tears courtesy sentimental cards
All those gifts that will gather dust
No care for expensive dinners -Tell you I must.
Red big hearts and giant red balloons.
Sappy, mushy songs- radio sings the tunes.
Strawberry muffins and red velvet cakes
All together this hype to me is fake.
You may think I am a cynic with no love in my life
But that’s not true, I am a beloved wife.
All the mush in the world, it has no bearing
This marriage has sense of humor and selective hearing.
My love is about sharing a cuppa tea
In the terrace, the wind blowing free.
Staring at the stars, the whole night
The rule of Saturday evening – you shall not fight.
Watching old movies snuggled in the couch
There’s history and future, there is love and no doubt,
Those violets will wilt and roses shall die
While we are doing it, the baby will cry!
The day after valentines, the shops are stuck
Some chocolates not sold, cupcakes, a day old
They come at half price (so I am told)
I like to celebrate love, don’t get me wrong
But the red is loud and the hype is too strong
All that sentimentality on facebook to like
To hell with it cupid, just take a hike.
I wish you happiness, elevating love and wishes that come true
I wish you joy and bliss, not one day but all the year through.
I wish you an inspired journey with beautiful twists
I wish you find someone, that you can grow old with.Published in
