A Valentine's Day Poem



True love is a house

where every room blooms

with carnations and roses,

and the table is set for two

with flickering candlelight

that welcomes us home.


True love is a sunny Saturday

in a crowded store gone pink

with every aisle full

of Valentine’s Day

cards, ruffled boxes

of chocolate truffles

and every girl's boyfriend.


True love is an elementary school

class party with sprinkled cupcakes

and boxes of poetic candy hearts

that promise every girl

has a secret admirer

and every single boy

is loved forever.
