I have just watched Jane Fonda and Robert Redford making romance cool, at any age, in their latest movie OUR SOULS AT NIGHT. We are always our younger selves on the inside.

Won't you be my Valentine
Even though we're past our prime?
Now our kids are up and running,
we could escape to somewhere sunny.

We've been neighbours now for years,
let's bring each other some cheer.
You lost your love, I lost mine.
Won't you be my Valentine?

Nights are lonely don't you think?
Instead we could be at the brink
of something new and exciting.
Isn't that thought inviting?

Life's for living I always say.
When the sun shines, make hay.
We could be so good together.
Please won't you tell me whether

you seek comfort just like me.
The kettle's on, I'll make tea.
I'll be yours if you'll be mine.
Won't you be my Valentine?

A lovely Valentine poem, and a lucky neighbour, Jean. I like the comment about you lighting up a room, which I'm sure is true. My missus can light up a room- if she shifts her arse away from the window :( .Viv x

Stop that Viv! Your poor long suffering wife. Life's a joke don't you think? That's why I try to laugh as often as I can. You are like a spoonful of laughter medicine to me Viv, and I thank you for that.

Uplifting it may be Jan, but not high enough to place in any contest. I still had fun writing it, which is the main thing.
