Valentines Day Alone
On a night like this, I find myself wishing you were here.
Who you may be, I have no idea.
I just want your warm body on mine, my dear.
Where we met, doesn‘t concern me…honestly…
I’m just longing for something I can’t seem to find…
That which has always left me behind.
I don’t mind if I don’t know your name.
I need someone to hold just the same.
I’d tell you my desires, I would share my story
If only you would cherish what my words are implying.
Unfortunately, this is what I brought upon myself
But tonight I wish I could pull my heart off this shelf.
My heart has grown cold, as the years have passed.
My trust and my hope have vanished at last.
Yet tonight, I sit here and remember the past.
A spark flickers to life and a heartbeat is found.
I fall to the ground, missing the sound
Of a breath in my ear, a voice I can hear, a love I can feel.
This isn’t the way it was meant to be
Not for you
Not for me
Find me, you’ll see
Let tonight be…
My darling, please
