Another Valentine

Vintage Valentine

'Another Valentine' by Wendy Cope

Today we are obliged to be romantic
And think of yet another valentine.
We know the rules and we are both pedantic;
Today's the day we have to be romantic.
Our love is old and sure, not new and frantic.
You know I'm yours and I know you are mine.
And saying that has made me feel romantic,
My dearest love, my darling valentine.

Dear Vincent,  you are driving me to the airport today, and we're not doing anything for Valentines Day.  So I thought I'd do something sappy and romantic for you anyway.... so this bit below, is for you!

I love how we are together.  I love that we always find things to talk about.  I love that we still make each other laugh.  I love how you understand me when I have random, out of the blue thoughts.  I love that you know how to make my tea better than I can make it myself.  I love that you know just when to make me a cup of tea.  I love how very much Bria loves you, and you love her.  I love your cuddles.  I love it when you let me read in silence.  I love it when you record my shows for me when I fall asleep early.  I love it when you kiss me on the forehead, for no reason other than that you want to.  I love it when you cook breakfast.  I love that you let me make mistakes and never say I told you so.  I love that you believe in me.  I love that we enjoy so many of the same things.  I love when you make supper. I love the odd sense of humor we share.  I love the warmth of your embrace.  I love waking up in your arms.  I love that you love me.

Most of all, I love you. Happy Valentine's Day.
