Happy Valentine's Day 2024
February is the most romantic month in the calendar year,
for love and romance is waiting and ready to appear.
Cupid arrives on the fourteenth with his bow and arrow,
to waiting hearts that are somewhat narrow,
but roomy enough to be able to hold,
all of the love that lies in waiting to unfold.
When romance strikes it alerts the heart,
and coupled together they form a new start
Love waits to share with a special soul,
and romance continues to be a lasting goal.
Happy Valentine’s Day with all of its hearts galore,
sending love and romantic messages forever more.
