A Romantic Poem About a Very Unromantic Valentine's Day: For My Hubby
No time for a date, but time for love
No fancy restaurants or fluffy, cutsie stuff
Instead a meal was ready when I came home
And for me, that was enough
(Oh my, how I’ve grown!)
Sure I would have made the meal differently
Okay, I didn’t finish all the food on my plate
Did I enjoy the fish stir-fry? Most certainly!
Because for me, he tried, a unique dish to create
No red cards with pink hearts
No flowers in a vase
But the hand-written love note was a fabulous start
And followed by chocolate kisses put a smile on my face
The evening didn’t end with romance and kisses
No candles burning to set the mood
But he cleaned the counters and washed the dishes
And made me some tea to wash down my food
A tight deadline was waiting—back to my laptop I was sent
It was not a magical evening for this lady and gent
But I must admit, that I am more than content
For true love remains, though the holiday came and went
