I’ve never been one to celebrate Valentines’ Day perhaps solely because I belong to the School of Thought that everyday of our lives should be a day of showing selfless love to others.
Didn’t even want to post anything today but I woke up to a very beautiful poem written for me by one of my supporters and A very good friend, that I knew I just had to share with the world. So, here goes:
“HAPPY VALENTINES’ DAY
Roses are red, violets are blue
From the distance I gaze upon you As the sunset baths on you
Its that season of love Where I can’t help but show I love you.
This seed of love we sowed Grew through space and time Watered by the tears, pains and sorrows Nutured by the smiles, laughters and hugs As humans, we can go wrong In love’s forgiving arms, we can go strong.
As love grows in time’s past We celebrate love that last In all its forms and act
I spread the joy of the season saying HAPPY VALENTINES’ DAY”
How beautiful indeed!
Now, to match what I felt when I first read this short poem, and of course with nudges from my bestfriends (Lucy and Meme…you’ll get to meet them soon), I decided to create a Valentines’ Day inspired look.
