Happy Valentines Day


Some say love, it is a river
that drowns the tender reed.
Some say love, it is a razor
that leaves your soul to bleed.
Some say love, it is a hunger,
an endless aching need.
I say love, it is a flower,
and you its only seed.

It's the heart afraid of breaking
that never learns to dance.
It's the dream afraid of waking
that never takes the chance.
It's the one who won't be taken,
who cannot seem to give,
and the soul afraid of dying
that never learns to live.

When the night has been too lonely
and the road has been too long,
and you think that love is only
for the lucky and the strong,
just remember in the winter
far beneath the bitter snows
lies the seed that with the sun's love
in the spring becomes the rose.

Thank you Bette Mindler

Happy Valentines Day to the special "roses" who have followed my blogs: some new friends, some who once followed but have now disappeared; and some as steadfast and pleasing as fine wine...

A., Alison, Angela, Angelika, Angelique, Briget, Brittany, Candy, Caroline, Catherine, Chica, Claire, Danielle, Debbie, Emily, Empress Bee, Ettarose, Janet, Kelly, Lidian, Linda, Petra, Petro, Sage, Sheila, Stine, Toni. And any other lady who has ever read my stuff. Thank you.

And, most of all, to my Princess.

Enjoy the dancing. I gather there's a lot of it going on.

Hello...what a curious photo.
That little guy looks almost scared...women do start to intimidate at a young age....don't they :)

Have a very ~ Nice Valentine's Day ~

Aww, thank you Max - it's the only rose I'm likely to get today, so it's sweetly precious.
Sorry I don't visit as much as I should.
(And the husband and I decided not to bother with cards etc this year, though I did buy myself some flowers this morning. My proper Valentine's present will be if Wales beat England at rugby this afternoon...)

Lidian said...

Thank you! And may all on the list, and you too, have some high-quality chocolate in honor of the occasion.

A. said...

Yes, me too, it's the only one I'll get today. In fact I've a feeling it's the only one I've ever got, school-made ones from children apart.

Chica said...

I finally got a new computer and boy is it hell. I don't like change. I have not commented because I have been fooling around. Happy belated Valentines Day sweetie.

I hope you all had a nice Valentines Day. Thank you for your "sweet" wishes. :)
