To my wife who just had triple by-pass surgery.

Roses are red.
Violets are blue.
The color of your health
will soon return to you.
Those men in white
who worked through the night
to repair your heart must know
that although you're still weak
the pink in your cheek will soon glow.
I love you so.

To a past lover who still emails me:

Roses are red
Violets are blue,
You still love me
But I've seen your true colors and sadly I no longer love you.

For Petunia, who posted above

My Buddy, my anchor, my love

I await your arrival, returning to me through the winter chill

And then off to Valentine's dinner at the City Park Grill.

Love,

Jr.

roses are red
violets are blue
if you're offering a job
I'm looking for you.

job market is dead
where steel skeletons once grew
snow now piles up
and working cranes are few

Architecture I do
to keep the family fed
but now its a hobby
and my account's in the red.

Roses are also white
and violets are also purple,
with all of your might
get off your curple.

If Patterson could see (well)
he'd only see blue.

My terrible attempt at completing the poem.
Along with Valentine's day, may I also remind you that Sunday is Tibetan New Year's day or Lunar New Year's? "Losar Tashi Delek" to you, Brian and all your listeners.
