Saint Valentine who were you?
Were you in love with someone too?
Its your day today,
Is this a joke to make me pay?
This day makes the loneliness hurt more,
Especially when I see red roses in the store.
I know no one wants to give them to me.
With tears in my eyes from the store I flee.
In my room I cry about it,
No one wants me I don't fit.
Saint Valentine were you a fool?
Or did you make this holiday because you were cruel?
