Happy Valentine's Day Poem
Day of Love
My heart feels blue
Last nights lover's spat
Peering out my cold window to see
the rising sun blanketed in a haze of agony.
In flashes of anger words spoken last night
In the midst of misunderstanding two lovers fight.
Falling asleep angry brings morning regret
innuendos that hurt can be hard to forget.
Now an undertow of doubt
pulls me swirling about
what to do, what to say
what a stew I've got myself into today.
New days promise
Still sleeping peacefully she is beauty in repose
I chance a kiss on her face, petite check of rose.
Stirring slowly a meek smile lightens pretty face
our anger of last night has gone without a trace.
Outside the clouds break as the sun shines its ray
of hope and love to brighten our brand new day.
The weight of the boulder she's rolled from my shoulder
transforms into butterflies fluttering about as I hold her.
Happy Valentine's Day
She opens her arms to loves warm embrace
Last night's anger has left us without a trace.
Holding her close and pressed to her face
a shy gentle whisper I'm so very sorry
beaming love she looks deep into my eyes
with a soft caress she exclaims its okay, not to worry
true love always finds a way with compromise
Enveloped by loves heat she takes hold of my hand
My love this beautiful day is our wedding anniversary
touching my ring finger she spins loves wedding band
looking into each others eyes in unison way say
I love you honey ... Happy Valentine's Day!
Cupids bow and human lip
Cupids bow is an ancient symbol of human lips. The curves and shape of the upper lip form the shape of a bow, as we can see in the photo to the right.
Cupids arrow is the sudden power and impact of the love that we feel when it strikes our heart. This can also symbolize a kiss.
Cupid is a ancient god-form to symbolize love, sex and fertility. The cupid we know is said to come from Roman times, but they may have borrowed it from a more ancient source.
So in effect, we may say that cupid shooting his arrow represents a kiss of romantic love. When cupid hits his mark and pieces the heart the two who are kissing have fallen in love.
Cupid himself may be have been employed by the ancient Romans as a mental image to visualize when praying for new love.
A heart pierced by the arrow of love
