Love Don’t get No Better Than That!
“I don’t buy into that Valentines’ hype,”
he growled as he came through the door,
arms laden with groceries
and yesterday’s newspaper.
Not even a card…
“Besides,” he added
with an ingratiating grin,
“Every day that we’re together
is Valentine’s Day.”
Before I lapsed into a self-righteous pout
I recalled the love song he’d written
‘Specially for me,
And when I’d had that cancer scare
He’d wished that it’d been him.
But the absolute efficacy
The ultimate validity
Of his devotion to me
Bait my hook
And then remove the fish
Love don’t get no better’n that…
THANK YOU FOR BEING MY VALENTINE!
