the Valentine

What is it anyway?
A card that shows you feelings so true?
Roses are red
violets are blue
sugar is sweet and so are you!
OR is it that feeling you
have had for someone for a long time that you cant explain!
OR that unexplainable warm glow that goes to your toes
when you just think of that special someone.
OR is it a dinner for two at an expensive restaurant
with champagyne, a favorite meal topped off with truffels and white chocolate mousse?
Or a gigantic bouquet of a dozen or two long stemmed red roses
in a perfent Wedgewood crystal vase?
Or is it just another day when people can actually
be nice to someone else for no reason at all?
Give them cards, chocolate candies in red heart shaped boxes,
smiles, a touch or illtimed kiss on the cheek?
OR is it a guy/gal going to the poorest of poor
in the city and ministering to them with a bit of food
or a blanket in this coldest part of the year?
to me it is any one of my four grandchildren coming up to me with a hug and a kiss and saying grandma "I LOVE YOU" for no reason.
or a co-worker/friend saying "mommanator thanks for what you do" and truly meaning it not that superficial stuff with a glance and a smile but a true heart felt thank you.
You see any day of the week can be valentines day not just on February 14th.
