SPREADING THE LOVE!
I couldn't let the day go by without spreading a little love. Even though many of us say St. Valentine's Day is far too commercialized, it doesn't have to be so. It can be what we make it. St. Valentine's day can be simple, kept low-key but still a day for romantic gestures and thoughts, whether or not one has a paramour at one's side or in some case, he or she maybe far, far away. With so much hate in the world, a celebration of love is a wonderful celebration and one that shouldn't be confined to just one day.
Let's all raise our glasses to 'love'...to those we love...to those we have loved...and to those we've yet to love.
Wilderness of the Heart
In the deep of night like the ancient call of the dingo
My heart howls in the darkness I weep despairingly
Wondering why my precious love you chose to forego
Tenacious images of you tease my mind persistently
Times past, times to come and today a lonely journey
Forever seeking with hopeful breaths of expectation
Through the frenzy of life blindfolded by melancholy
I exist in an artificial world surrounded by frustration
I love you dearly…I know that now
As time unfolds your presence I adore
A lost lonely spirit I appeared before
You strode into my life without a care
Showing me the way to trust love to share
Without your support the belief I so need
I would flounder stumble never to heed
Heart’s yearning desire its plaintive plea
I reach out to you for the guidance to be
My arms enfold you my soul inspired anew
Without you an eternity…
With you moments too few
Happy St. Valentine's Day To You All!
