Soon - upon us, a day for Valentine.
Realization – it, you will never be mine.
Knowing – you want me, not to be yours.
Conclusion – you have closed all your doors
on the love I have for you, gave to you.
It seems to matter not, for nothing I do,
it seems to me – had the force to get through,
slip past the guards, over the stone walls, that gate.
To be your Valentines – I believe – not to be my fate.
I do not know – at this moment – whether or not, it is hate
that drives you so – is it hate that keeps you from me ?,
 or is it some other emotion ?, I am unable to see.
It seems to me, no matter what, for you, I will not be
your Valentine, nor, with you, will I be any time 
soon, and so, at this noon hour, I will end this rhyme,
wanting – still ! – for you to be my Valentine.

    How ( Indian for hello ) Wow !!!, Linda : You sure have had me in your radar this weekend and how nice it is to get your input on my “ In passing on ”, “ Lepidopteron larvae ”, “ Rivers ”, “ Other things ” and “ Valentines ” stuff, for which I am most grateful my Dear . I must apologize Linda, for my slackness, for my not finding the time to read yours and others poems, ( who have so generously taken the time to read and comment on mine, ) and for not commenting on them as a few of you have done on my stuff. Anyway Linda, Thank you !!!, and hope you had a great weekend . Bill -William J Atfield Jr – ( B. J. “A” 2 )
