Valentine’s Day, redux

Written for Valentine’s Day, 2011.

Feb. 14, 2011

It’s Valentine’s Day!
Time for love letters filled with
Gooey promises

It’s Valentine’s Day!
Play some romantic music
And join my chorus

It’s Valentine’s Day!
“Let’s do it; let’s fall in love,”
Louie Armstrong sings

It’s Valentine’s Day!
This very day I proposed
Twenty-two years back

It’s Valentine’s Day!
“I’m Still in Love With You,” sings
Righteous Rev. Al Green

It’s Valentine’s Day!
“Our Love Is Here to Stay,” sings
Billie Holiday

It’s Valentine’s Day!
“We’ll Be Together Again”
Sing lovers who part

It’s Valentine’s Day!
Nothing should compare with what
True lovers can share

It’s Valentine’s Day!
You don’t need Cupid’s arrow
I’m all aquiver

It’s Valentine’s Day!
Tell the doctor to go home
Ain’t no cure for love

It’s Valentine’s Day!
Try “Once” if you want to watch
A romantic film

It’s Valentine’s Day!
Watch “About a Boy” and see
How love defines life

It’s Valentine’s Day!
You don’t have to be “in love”;
Enjoy your friendships

Caution: Blue (or at least blues-man) lyrics ahead:

It’s Valentine’s Day!
And my heart is double parked
So baby let’s roll

It’s Valentine’s Day!
Don’t leave me stuck in neutral
When the light turns green

It’s Valentine’s Day!
My battery’s fully charged
Turn the ignition

It’s Valentine’s Day!
Trust me baby, it’s all good
What’s under my hood

With apologies to Rodney Dangerfield:
It’s Valentine’s Day!
Meet me after school — you know,
When you have no class

OK, the cynicism finally sets in:

It’s Valentine’s Day!
Will you be mine forever?
At least till morning?

It’s Valentine’s Day!
Still looking for Mr. Right?
Or Mr. Right Now?

It’s Valentine’s Day!
Hug your sweetie; love your spouse
Just don’t let them meet

It’s Valentine’s Day!
February’s half over
You gotta love that
