From my window, I peer outside,

for I see the streets filled with colors,

Red and White,

Men and Women,

Boys and Girls,

Holding flowers in one hand and each other in the other hand.

Lo! it beckoned to me,
It’s another February 14,
Another valentine’s day.

Before I could raise a thought,
Something whispered to me,
“Humans are weird beings, they choose one day out of every 365 days to show Love to each other.”
I thought it funny but then again, I’ll say:

Love is happiness that is shown day after day.

It is holding that person’s heart dearly, never breaking it or tossing it away.

Tender as a gift that should be treasured more with every passing day.

It is thinking of that person and a bright smile comes upon your face.

Love is the twinkle in her eyes when she stares at you.

It’s the warmth in his hands that sends a shock straight to your feet.

Love is for a lifetime, not only for a day.

Spread Love regardless of the day, event or reason because without Love, nothing is real.

Happy Valentine’s Day.

Spread Love
