One Day Is Not Enough

One Day Is Not Enough

A Poem by David J Rogers
"

A poem for my wife on St Valentine's Day 2016

"

One day is not enough to say I love you.
Perhaps I should try and do.
But one day a year to say I love you,
Would not be enough, even with flowers, too.

One month is not enough to say I love you.
Even though there are cards and candy, too.
But one month only just won't do.
One month is not enough to say I love you.


One year is not enough to say I love you.
No, no; one year just won't do.
There's not enough time to show you.
One year is not enough to say I love you.


Maybe a lifetime might do.
Yes, maybe a lifetime will do.
Everyday, every way, to say I love you.
From our early days to all the way through.


If a lifetime isn't enough, there's eternity, too!
Time without ending, a n'er ending view,
A lifetime partnership, just us two.
An eternity of sharing, me saying I love you.


With all my heart, I love you.
Time and time again will do,
Everyday, every way, eternity through,
Time without ending, just to say I love you.


c.20160214, for my wife, my forever Valentine.
