I HOPE ALL IS FINE WHEN IT’S VALENTINE
It’s Valentine’s Day
And I have a lot to say..
“I love you, “
“You’re among the very few,”
And so on and so forth
I can rattle with full mirth.
“Be my Valentine.”
Okay. I shall. But, is all really fine?
“I love you so,”
‘Don’t you know? “
How could I when I hear
About groping, molesting of species I hold dear?
How could I when I see sane people get wild
Injuring, attacking and hurting the most mild?
I shall be your Valentine.
We shall commit to care –
To love each other and to be fair.
But, will we make a difference
In today’s fast advancing race
Of culture and business sans grace?
Of witnessing how politicians divide a city
Shoving away ‘outsiders’. Oh! What a pity!
Forgetting what it means to be one,
Of living, working together under the same sun.
Before I say, “I do”
Let’s make an effort to change,
To cast away all prejudice in any visible range
I love Valentine. I love you.
Like leaves moist with early morning dew.
Let’s stay together for now and forever
To live and savor
A love to last for a lifetime
Yes. I believe when it’s Valentine, all is fine.
