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?
