Love's sweet aroma
is floating in the air
bringing with it
roses and chocolates

Everything is colored
red, pink, and white

Hearts are told comforting words
lavishly given convincing things
to be swept up
by embracing hands

Today is the day of sweethearts,
celebrating their relationship
and love.

And for those who can't be loved
this day is full of jealousy
denial and hopelessness
