Forgotten Valentine

The world is made for lovers, on this new Valentines Day
And that was from my brother because it had gone astray.

He sent it to his girlfriend; I had hoped the card was for me
But when I opened it, I was shocked at the words I did see.

My brother professing love for me, I knew his handwriting well
He told me how I would see his heart begin to swell.

As you may imagine, this shocked me to the core
When the postman came back and knocked upon the door.

“That card I put through here, it was not meant for you
I know your brother well and he asked me this to do.

Put it through his girlfriend’s door, to save the prices a stamp
I have put it though the wrong one, the bulbs gone in the street lamp.”

“That’s ok”. I said, but you must have one for me
“Sorry love” he said, “You are a forgotten Valentine again I see.”

    Dear Mandy, On the one hand it is a very funny story to write about, on the other It is sad when you think you are forgotten BUT look at the bright side: There are 364 days that you have not been forgotten by your friends! Happy Valentine ’s my dear. Who knows tomorrow is another day. All can happen! Thank you for visiting!

    Dear Mandy Tams. At last I have found the perfect girl for a Valentine. My pacemaker is going crazy. The rest has been lost for years. I sincerely hope you have not been forgotten on Valentine's day. Love, daver

    lol, glad to hear it's fiction - lovely write, my friend. Strange about John/Jack Horne, but some people call Johns Jacks, and vice versa, so he could well have been another Jack Horne.
