Is it Christmas with lights of green & red,

Is it New Years day with little pointed hats on the head,

Is it Thanksgiving with turkey & stuffing eaten in bed,

Is it the 4th of July with fireworks blasting all are well fed…


Is it Presidents day, paying homage to the past,

Is it Easter, with bunnies & chocolate eggs,

Is it Veterans day, where we remember our military first, not last,

Is it Labor day, where we have a day off, & don’t remember why…


None of all the above, is it, this day is set aside for love & romance,

Taking our significant others out to dinner & a drink,

Maybe to the movies to see their version of life & love,

Then maybe just to see if he or she still can, both try the dance,

This is of course Valentines day & it is gone in of the eye a blink…
