a kid's valentine card to his unusual crush
         No Postage Necessary

Hi Cindy, this is a friend
you once knew with something to say
I give you all my best wishes
on this year's Valentine's Day

         This card came in your mailbox
         without a stamp on the envelope
         Because I am your neighbor
         and you know which one, I hope

You were once my babysitter
all those many (four) years ago
I've grown up quite a bit since then
and I just wanted you to know

         I think of you quite often
         even though you're somewhat older
         You have only gotten more pretty
         and I've finally grown a bit bolder

You're three years out of college
and it's three years until I'm there
Some may think our ages matter
but my fantasies of you don't care

         You once cared after school for me
         just one kid among many others
         Now I teach your little boy soccer
         and we're good friends, like brothers

I know this is weird to hear
and wow it's awkward for me to say
But I was hoping if you weren't busy
we could go out on a date today

         I'm not a pervert or anything
         but I appreciate all your qualities
         And I hope you know that friends
         are one of life's rare commodities

So if you want a joyous outing
of smiling until our nice time ends
I hope you'll give me a call
and we can be best Valentine friends

         I'm not asking for intercourse
         just great company you might be missing
         You can tell me what college is like
         and I won't object if it includes kissing

I hope this letter was in good taste
and I don't seem unclassy or just a bother
So if you decline or think I'm naive
then do me a favor: don't tell my father!

         Though if you prefer to spend
         this romantic holiday autonomous
         Please accept my wishes and have
         a great day
                              -- Love, Anonymous
