Sweet and simple, simply sweet
That’s what little kids think of Valentine’s treats
What they do not know–sshhh– It’s the parents’ secret stash;
Valentine’s is the day when Mom and Dad’s clash
Over who loves Bre a little bit more, and who loves Bruce
despite the Jersey Shore (hee hee Brucie!)
Drag out the hearts
and the chocolate, too,
That little notation that I love you.
And tell your kids while they can hear
That love is doing, it’s being near
And when they choose to venture on
They’re the muse of your heartsong.
