Can dreams come true?
I had dreams when I was younger
Of having a Perfect Valentine of my own.
We would do everything together, always be in harmony.
Gads, the foolish dreams of youth - and they were foolish.
Only time has shown that there is nothing perfect in
Relationships - that is nothing but fool's gold.
And yet, I wonder - because I have heard -
That there are such romances that survive;
Even for decades. Can it be true?
Loneliness only protects those who do not want
To take a chance on love. Could it happen at my age?
I long to have that in my life, but I am so afraid to put myself out there.
To have not a Perfect Valentine, but a human one,
Someone to share my hopes and fears, my joys and sorrows.
If only there was one for me.
