A Valentine…

Valentine Rose - Dear Valentine
Dear Valentine,
I’ve lost count of our Valentine’s Days together,
Not that it feels like so many; it’s just that I’d rather
keep looking forward  than back.
“I Love You” –  and I can only show you that
by continuing to take care, as best I can, of you and me.
You already know my heart was running on batteries
before you. I didn’t always wear love and I guess
my heart was something of an antique, collecting
layers upon layers of dust.
But you restored and refinished it, covered it
with all that was lost to it before.
And while the years have left us with a few
dings and scratches, we’re still here
dusting love off on the journey.
We are a Valentine, you and me…
the kind that seldom endures,
but has.

I care deeply about many things and wish there was much more love and compassion in this world today. I also have a part time blog "Thought You Might Like This" diannesthingsat.wordpress.com used for special projects and occasional things of interest
