Get Well Soon Song

Last night I decided to write you a pretty song,
So I did! It was neither too short nor too long.
Of course, it was all about you, my beautiful wife,
And how much I love you, Mrs. Love-of-my-Life!
It was a lovely song, and I’d sing it to you if I could!
If it weren’t for one small problem, I really would!

You see, I can’t quite remember how the song goes,
Alas! My bad memory always causes me such woes!
The lyrics were great, formed deep within my heart;
But they’ve fled my recollection, from the end to the start!
The melody was catchy, bursting from my very soul,
But it’s gone too! Maybe old age is taking its toll!

I got up this morning, depressed I couldn’t remember,
I’m so in love with you, I thought it was December!
I love you so much, more than an “i” loves its dot,
More than breathing! and I love breathing a whole lot!
And you wonder why I’m so absent-minded?
I can’t stop thinking of you! You have me blinded!

So I guess why I’m such a klutz is really your fault,
I think of you and all other thoughts screech to a halt.
Oh, if only I could remember the song I wrote for you!
Then you would know how much I love you! It’s true!
Oh, wait! I do remember the last line! (though not the tune),
It went like this: “I love you, and I hope you get well soon!

The Light Be Which I See

Today is Valentine’s Day, a very special day;
For some it’s a day when couples get together to say,
“I love you, I love you, I love you, I do!
Have some chocolates… and some roses too!”

For others, today is a day to pass secret notes,
With cute love sayings, or romantic quotes,
To a friend, a classmate, or a special someone;
But they are always signed “From: ?” (just for fun).

For others still, today is a day when Cupid goes on the hunt;
With his bow and arrows ready, he lets out a grunt,
And thinks to himself as he spots his pursued prey,
“This one’s not going to escape. There’s no way!”

For me and you, today is a day made for two,
And I want you to know just how much I love you;
I want you to know how much you mean to me,
You are the beautiful light by which I see.

You are the smiley face in my bologna,
You are the cheese to my macaroni.
You put the tick back in my clock,
You are the key to my padlock.

So, my dear, you are the love of my life,
You are the edge of my knife.
You are the air in my basketball,
You are the stores in my shopping mall.

You are the ink in my pen,
You are the feathers on my hen.
You are the juice in my bottle,
You put the movement in my waddle.

Hey, I have an idea! And this one’s really good!
Why don’t we flip a coin? Really, I think we should!
If it’s heads, I‘m yours, and if it’s tails, you’re mine,
But in either case, please, oh please will you be my Valentine?
