Before Valentine

Before Valentine

A Poem by Mary Bradley
"

Not a mere love

"
Love songs pouring out like sweet honey 
Rose's Reds are much sought after 
Sweets ! Can't forget those for a night to remember 
These rituals of celebrating one thing called LOVE .
Often ...
Valentine's Day means ,
The last vestige of love worth fighting for .
Erasing betrayals for this one wonderful night of love .
Forgiving cantankerous feeling of love .
And many other facets of love .
I am wishing ...
No other kind of love than the one you have for me .
No rituals needed to woo me .
Let it be only our plain old love 
Let it be only you and I 
To celebrate this love we have 
Not just a mere Valentine's Day kind of love !

I love the way you turned the whole thing on its head Mary. The rest of the year should be special and this day ordinary in a manner of speaking because when the hoo-haa has died we are left with empty choccy boxes, mouldy water in a vase and smelly flowers and cards that may or may not be recyclable. Then what..? Thats when actual love - not shop-bought love kicks in - or should kick in.
Well done for this timely reminder dear poet. :)

"Forgiving cantankerous feeling of love" -- yes indeed. It takes an act of commitment. This was spot on my dear friend!! Well done Mary (and your English is getting better by the poem :)
