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.
~

About DiAnne Ebejer

I am retired and live on the East coast of Florida where I spend much of my time reading, playing with photography and trying to write some "poetry and then some" at dianneebejer.wordpress.com. 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
