Remember guys, Valentine's day is TOMORROW!

Maybe you're lucky like me and have a sweetie that's easy to please on this day of romantic expression promulgated by the corporate interests of the greeting card companies, but for G-ds sake, at least get her a card!

I've learned that even when they SAY that it's ok that you forgot, it is NOT.

I have it covered, but I thought I'd post this as a tribute to my lovely wife of almost 12 years too:

To my Valentine, with all my love,
Of whom I cannot say enough in praise:
May my love for you sufficient prove,
Yearning to redeem your caustic days.
Vortices within may drag you down.
Anchor, then, in my serenity.
Love saves some who otherwise might drown,
Embarked alone upon their Galilee.
Nor should you deem your own love not enough
To be the chapel to which I retreat
In search of a pavilion for my pain.
No love is love unless it be a seat
Enchanted, where a stone might weep again.

And Honey, below the fold is JUST for you. (that means don't look, the rest of you pervs!)

Hat tip to www.angelart-gallery.com for the cool valentine art and to Nicholas Gordon for the poem

Value me for what I give you;
All the rest hold in your heart.
Life does not fulfill our wishes;
Even lifelong lovers part.
Now let yourself be lulled by kisses,
Take from the moment all that's due;
Inter within what your heart misses,
Nor let what's false destroy what's true.
Enjoying love requires art.

Sweetthing is a low maintenance valentine and I love her for it. If I bought her a box of candy and a dozen roses she would accuse me of being up to something.
