Chosen Words

Thursday, February 14, 2013 by The Press in Opinion

Valentine's Day

Don't bother buying

me a Hallmark card this year.

Don't bother buying me

a box of assorted chocolates.

Don't bother buying me

a pretty piece of jewelry.

Don't bother buying me

fancy perfumes to spray on.

Don't bother buying me

elegant clothing to strut in.

Don't bother buying me

a lavish dinner at a restaurant.

Don't bother buying me

any roses that will wither.

Don't bother buying me

a bottle of special champagne.

Don't bother buying me

presents from selected stores.

Take the time

to show me

you truly care.

Take the time

to open doors for me.

Take the time to read me

something you wrote.

Take the time to spend

time with me.

Take the time to share

your dreams with me.

Take the time to tell me

about your day.

Take the time to smile

and laugh with me.

Take the time to walk

with me holding hands.

Take the time to be affectionate

and show compassion.

Take the time to give me

all your love.
