The Way To Someone's Heart

Roses lose their petals While chocolate makes you fat, And sexy pieces of lingerie Displays all of that. Romantic get-a-ways Cost too much money, And diamonds are only beautiful As long as your name is honey. Every card of love Ultimately ends up in the trash, As cuddly stuffed animals Join a collective stash. Dinner for two Serves an anxious crowd, And tools or appliances Are clearly not allowed. Perfumes and cologne Release a fading scent, But the gift of love Isn’t the money you’ve spent. The way to someone’s heart On valentine’s day, Is to say I love you In your own creative way.
