A Happy Song

I don't like being grinchy about Valentines.
And not liking chocolate (THAT'S ME!) is not a good excuse for not liking Valentines. Chocolate is sweet, gooey and sticky. Valentines is warm, soft and heavy--like a blanket.
And Valentines' day isn't all about taking love either. If no one gave love, where would the love come from? Giving love is a fun, fun habit.
Even if I never got a single gift of chocolates until I was 15 (when I got like...5), it's a day for love, and love is a responsibility that cannot be shirked. And if you forget to love most days...may as well love on the one that reminds you.

We preserve it between
Clasped fingers
And force it deeper
Into each other...

So as not to freeze in cold
So as not to melt in heat.

I love you, even though Valentines is gone. (Valentines made me start, I won't let it make me stop, lest it cancel itself out and disappear. I want it again next year. You know who you are!!!)
