To All You Old Valentines Who Have Been Around the Block

Updated on February 15, 2018

This Is For You

Just when you thought Valentine's Day was over

Guess again

Many years have come and gone

One day a year isn't that long

For all those mothers and wife's

Grandmothers and aunts

Sweet daughters and young children

Lovers who are floating on air

Friends who you can't resist

Young love is in bloom

There is no need to rush

To take those cards off the table and desk

Watch the flowers wilt and die

The box of candies being gobbled up one by one

Those teddy bears tossed aside

The cute little gifts forgotten about and tucked in some forgotten place

When there is so much more to see

With all the love that we give constantly

Go back to what made you so happy

Put that smile on their face with a wonderful hello

Followed by a great big hug that temporarily squeezes the life out of them

The time with each other

Talking and sharing those special moments

That bring to people together

Spending more time agreeing than arguing

Working out your differences

Making each other happy many times during a day

How nice is it to see

Your Valentine larger than life

Treated with respect and kindness

Appreciated for all the things they do

Finally thought of often

For who they are and making sure they are feeling o.k.

Receiving a little more love by the end of each day

      Joy 56 If I remember correctly I was always trying to write like you. We had so much fun. I kept writing and you moved on to bigger and better things. I am still the same and am so happy and pleased to hear from you. We have a lot of catching up to do. I hope your Valentine's Day was extra special. I hope you enjoyed my stoem (story/poem). Have a wonderful night.

      Devika Primic I think we all can find someone who deserves a little love. If it is a neighbor, friend, boy or girlfriend, husband or wife we all should be treated nice. How often do we forget the members of our own family ? Spending time starts now. Thank you for spending time to read and comment. Have a great day.

      A special day for love and romance. Time spent for each other is so important. Love is the greatest when you have it.

      Dora Weithers The best thing about love is that it doesn't require money. Just time, friendship and sharing. The other things are nice when possible. Valentine's Day can be a reminder of caring for people in our lives every day. I think we all like to be remembered for the good that we do and not the bad. Thank you for reading and finding time to comment. Our world is busy with so many new problems that seem to arise every day. I think we too often forget all the good that we have done for years.
