It's comin' up

Saint Valentine’s Ain’t The Day

I don’t show up
on Saint Valentine’s day
with ‘merican beauty roses
beaucoup Belgian chocolates
ribeye steaks or lobster tails
nor those shiny baubles ladies love

Nope, I save all those
for three days later
anniversary of the day in ’62
when we tied the knot;
the first day of the best days
of our star touched lives

Year forty-eight
comes up on Wednesday
(fifty that we’ve been together)
time flashed by so quickly
damn, it seems like yesterday
but we’re still looking for tomorrow
