February 15

Valentines day is finished
Candy eaten, paper thrown away
Today is a normal day
Winter with the hope of spring

The heart is glad for the day
Being deliberate about the important
Remembering what should not be forgotten
Saying what should be said every day

That day is over
Expectations are much lower
Question: what should be done today?
Is love less important on the fifteenth?

The sun continues to shine
The moon continues to grow in fullness
The heart still longs for love
Why are words more difficult when unexpected?

The hope of forever does not diminish love
Something about it lasts while there is breath
The peace and knowledge of tomorrow strengthens love
There is a great value to trust

Valentines day may be finished
But love is never finished
