THOUGHTS OF LOVE LOST SURFACING AROUND V-DAY

 

Long ago on Valentine’s Day

You gave me a bouquet

Of organic carrots

 

“Live healthy, live long”

Although you never said

“I love you” in words

It was implicit in the gift

 

Then, nothing

“It’s just another day”

Is what I heard you say

(Can you hear the Beatles sing,

“So sad, so sad, sometimes she feels so sad”?)

So I left

So you made promises

So I returned

But you never said

“I love you”

In words or in gifts

Again…
