Roses have thorns tasting of bitter sweet tears,
Painted grey with pains and sorrows over the years.
Yet they are also the colour of a truest romance,
As another teaches our heart and soul to dance.
Every dance has its own unique theme tune,
That makes fools of us all in the fullest moon.
Lyrics from collected from shared memories,
And a melody as sweet as from any bakeries.
It will soon be time to celebrate Valentine’s Day,
But remember the dance is not bought on eBay.
It is in the daily words, thoughts and actions,
This is the secret to endless satisfactions.
However, not all are fortunate to have a partner,
But everyone is appreciated and loved by another.
So keep wearing that smile and not the tears,
As tomorrow is a promise full of potential cheers.
