For My Valentine

For my valentine
For my valentine

Won't you be mine, Valentine? 
Put down the dishes and stay for a while; 
 Let me kiss your cheek and make you smile. 
Let the kids ick and eek and moan; 
Come hold my hand, put down our phone. 
The washing and folding of laundry can wait. 
 The days pass quickly-- don't hesitate! 
Spend some time, please be mine, 
Would you, could you, 
 my sweet Valentine? 

I stayed up a little too late making Valentines for Chris and the kids last night (and finishing up all the kid's goodies for school). I had a single doily and some wrinkled lace (that I ironed) to make this one. And although my hubby told me not to buy him anything, I couldn't help going back to my poet days and writing something sweet.

Hope you all have a sweet day with your loved ones--Happy Valentine's Day!
