It’s February 14th, which means it’s Valentine’s Day! I want to wish everybody (whether you are in a relationship or single) a happy Valentine’s Day. I do not want to get all sappy (and some of you many not want to hear it) so I won’t. There’s this stigma around Valentine’s Day, saying that it is a holiday for couples only. What about all the single people? You shouldn’t feel bad for being single (it isn’t anybody’s fault). Forget about going out to a fancy dinner or getting chocolate or getting flowers. Forget about wallowing around and watching reruns on TV. It’s not so much about going all out or doing too little.
Spending Valentine’s Day alone isn’t the end of the world. Valentine’s Day is about spreading love, happiness, and laughter. Spend time with your friends or do something fun or give back in some way. You deserve it. To spread some cheer (especially for those around this holiday who are down in the dumps) here is a poem 0r two to cheer you up. This is about that special someone who is either a friend, a family member or something more than that. Whoever that person is, it does not matter. That “special” person could even be yourself. Whatever you are doing on this holiday (or whoever you are spending this holiday with) just remember that you are never alone (no matter how alone you feel sometimes). Lots of love to you all. Treasure those special moments. Everybody is special and beautiful (you don’t need other people to remind you of that), but here’s a reminder for you just in case.
With our hands linked together
Our touches became light as a feather,
Although your hands are callused from
The harsh winter. I don’t feel so numb
Anymore. It’s a sign of comfort
And I start to wonder
If this is what peace feels like?
Although I can see that we’re alike,
I ponder if we’re just lucky.
This moment feels lovely.
It’s no longer about claiming
Territory or about taking
Anything. It’s about our connection
And spark. It’s something special.
I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
I want to keep it all furled.
Nobody can touch this, even in silence.
To you I’m a diamond
Because I am so beautiful
And this is one thing we can control.
Friends or whatever
We are, we can endeavor
Anything as long as we are
Intertwined and follow the North Star.
There we will find our harmony.
There lies our dreams and destiny.
