To wake each day and see your smile

I know our love is true

Another day in paradise

So what’s a girl to do


Valentine’s Day comes once a year

I know I couldn’t wait

To share the joy we have each day

On such commercial fate


For every day with you my love

Is greater than before

For some it’s love on demand

To some it’s keeping score


I much prefer the flowers

You said were “just because”

Instead of “guilted tokens”

As every “good man” does


In poem & song I once again

Attest to how I care

For what we have runs deeper

A love that’s truly rare


And every day’s a holiday

A friendship that’s caught fire

So here’s to one more evening

Of passion & desire
