A Parent’s Love Poem

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.

Cruisin on a Sunday afternoon
