    Valentine's Day
    If I only stayed at work
    instead of trying to surprise
    with a bouquet of roses, champagne for us 2
    I really don't like champagne, but I'm thinking of you
    thinking the words that you utter "I LOVE YOU TOO"
    as I leave you so early, to my livelihood
    to my surprise came home a sad shock to my eyes
    a slap in the face
    a knife in the back
    now I'm walking streets that have no end
    listening to laughter as it burns within
    my hands seem to be the only ones not being held
    they're in my pockets with that bit of change
    I was going to call you with
    to tell you I got off early
    but a surprise was the plan
    and surprised I am

    Thanks for you comments. Thankfully, it's not from personal experience, but obviously we all can relate one way or another to this one. Much love to all of you.
