Valentine's Day and Love



 Valentines Day and Love

I'm not looking for roses,
Don't send me a bouquet.
I'm not feeling for your chocolates
Don't get me started on even cake
I'm not feeling for the date night
Nor the sentiments of love
Why do you wait on Valentines Day
To give me all the above?

I'm not feeling for your phone call
To ask me out, for dinner this time
I'm not waiting for a special song
The one, that says "you'll always be mine"
I'm not trying to be difficult
Really, I'm not sure you can see
Why do you wait for Valentines Day
To say - I love you, my boo, my baby?

I'm not going to try to tell you
About all the days you made me cry
I'm not even going to give you
One more reason, to stay at my side
I'm still the person you met so long ago
The one you promised to be faithful to
Why should I wait for just one day
To hear you love me too?

To all of those who are celebrating
And happy to spruce up and get dressed
To all the loving couples
Who are somehow today feeling blessed
I'm not trying to rain on your parade
I just want this love you feel to be
Much more than a single celebration
Of a commercial, happy meal

It's not the things that he will give you
Or the way she makes you feel
Its not the things he says he can do
Nor the way she lives your dreams
Its about a love that can find forgiveness
Comfort and compromise
Its about a love which will withstand challenges
In the face of all that brings tears to your eyes
Its about the sustaining love that goes beyond
The treasure of one time
If you can't share the things right above
Don't be my Valentine!

No Scary Movies For Me



The games of ghosts and scares of the night

Are never the ones I wanted to see.

The howls of the wolves

Or the cooing of the owls

The stories in the dark

With my sister holding the light

Are haunted house visions that give me a fright.

 

The haunting music that signals a scare

And the scary stories at bedtime were never my thing.

My sister, however, was much braver than me

Eagerly waiting for those shows on TV.

She’d keep me up at all hours of the night,

Enjoying my squirming, and always sudden flight.

 

Secretly though, I would happily give

My big sister’s longing for moral support.

She was always the happiest the scarier the tale.

Yet with every review, I would find a way to bail.

The haunted houses and stories are just not my thing

But I love my big sister, so I stayed with my eyes closed – listening!

Its About Taste



Sometimes it’s hard to decide

What treat it’s safe to eat.

The chocolates

And cheesecake slices

Ice cream delights

And biscuits

Are ready and waiting for me.

Yet, I pause a lot

Because the calories I’m counting

And gratification comes at a cost.

Will my diet go haywire

Will my discipline be derailed

I’m still thinking what choice I will make.

 

However, in my mind

I know it will be

A frozen yogurt

Of any flavor I will choose.

After the first bite

And that delicious creamy taste

It is the obvious decision on my plate.

I don’t ever feel guilty

Because with this treat

My cravings are satisfied to the max.

It’s the afterglow I get

When my urges are met

Thus, I’m sated, and elated

Without wrath.

That Autumn Place


 

Autumn will take me to another place

 Not where I am

But where I wish to see again.

There is no autumn in the Caribbean

But we have some days that remind me of

That other place.

 

The Caribbean breezes

And the warm beach on an evening

The orange and yellow sky

On a morning, sometimes

Remind me of that autumn place

I hope to see again.

 

Before my memory fades

And I forget all I wish to remember

I want to feel that wisp of a chill

That heralds a new season is close.

The days I love them most

With colors to be adored – like me

I miss that autumn place.
