    Bright red roses join candy and flowers
    As things to be given to someone dear
    Some things last lifetimes, some for an hour

    There are many ways to express one's love
    The buying of fine gifts at great expense
    Mailing cards that say you're being thought of

    There are things to remind you someone cares
    Things from a lover that may make your day
    Things that are special, things you both can share

    You and I express our love much different
    In ways that have nothing to do with gifts
    What we give is time based on commitment

    We have come up with something else to do
    We smile and honestly say I love you

    Simply lovely. Valentines day, like most holidays
    is so commercialized that we forget its based on
    just pure and natural love. I'd rather have that than
    a box of chocolates anyway! Love da scribe!
