"Red vs. Blue (A Valentine's Day Poem)"

My baby and I

He never loved me like I loved him,
and I was blinded.
Now I can see clearly again,
just a little far-sighted.
I take you for granted,
in the wonderful things you do.
My eyes must be slanted,
or I'm squinting at you.
Truth is I dont know where I'd be without you.

If you gave me a rose,
red as can be,
or a violet so blue,
it doesn't matter to me.
If you gave me nothing at all,
on this Valentines day,
I wouldn't love you any less,
I'd love you just the same.

In fact, I'd love you more,
for its your love that you give,
each and every day,
and for that is why I live.

Awwwwww. Now you know what I'd sometimes say - but I won't. It's too beautiful just as it is. I hope he gave you that love which is better than roses or violets.

Nicole , Ive been catching up on reading hubs . Esp yours. Emotional, Touching , Telling.

Its hard for me to comment on much of the subject matter. Ive had words like those land on me a few times. While handling my loves heart i should have held it more gently .

Thought provoking hub

always handle hearts gently, yours and others, for they are very fragile and easily broken, but they are also able to mend and be put back together. the heart is resillient. Thanks for commenting.
