Valentine’s Day is upon us,
a celebration of love they say.
But if we truly loved my darling,
we’d experience it every day.
Little is really known about the saint,
except he gave this day his name,
and he put the Roman into romance.
So, we celebrate him just the same.
I really do love fresh flowers.
I stop to smell them when I can.
When I want them I buy them for myself.
I don’t need them from man.
If you’re looking for something special,
that you think might just please me.
I’d love a cup of fresh roses, dear,
but I’ll take mine in a hot cup of tea.
