I still remember, from long ago
The beautiful flower that I had to let go
It wasn't that it was ugly and unpretty
nor that it was vile, unkept and gritty.
That long winter day was bright and glowing
mostly from all the snow that had been blowing
The harsh winter air moving the pink petals
making her tears shine like silver metal
The day I lost the flower was S.A.D. indeed
As the flower blossomed, I withered to a degree
The flower's ever encompassing vine
Continued to stay rooted in my spine.
In all fairness, it wasn't meant to be
between my warm Lily & me
She clung to summer, I to winter
cold was the heat that caused us to splinter
Another Valentines day, past and down,
And not another rose to be found
That doesn't mean I'll give up hope
Because should I do, I'll sink my boat
There's another flower out there, bright and true
Who know, it may even be you!
So those of you without a 'tine
Go out there and make a Rhyme
Send it to someone you may or may not know
And maybe, just maybe, a flower will grow.
PS: Based on true events - Not every Valentine's Day has a movie/fairy tale ending, I'm afraid.
