We're stuck with each other!


No Valentine for you , my love.
Just the same old stuff.
Sweaty socks in the laundry
And dirty dishes in the sink.
Clean the catsí hairballs
And Iíll caulk the tub.

I could take you out for dinner;
But that would include
Watching buffed people
In love for a week
Pretending forever.
We donít need that.

I held your hand last night.
You were snoring.
Iíll hold it tomorrow too.
Please wash the window.
Iíll take care of the floor
I know your back hurts.

This Valentine stumps me.
Should I love you
One day a year?
I donít think so.
Itís for youngsters.

Young, or maybe new, loves.
People with something to prove.
I have nothing. To prove.
I donít love you just today;
I love you everyday.

Loving this one, are you gonna write one for 2005, or just move this to the top? ;) Loving her everyday with nothing to prove, is the best, I'd just move it.

Sorry I missed this one earlier. Sentiments are realistic, but hey I dont mind a little Red Rose once a year, or going out to dinner and playing sweethearts, breaks the monontony, but otherwise, enjoyable write Peter.
