I Wish Valentines Day Is Just Another Day

i wish Valentines Day, is just a product of the creative imagination
of poets and creatives alike
to generate monetary compenstion
and to further their pursuit of recognition and epic breakthrough
but it isn’t.

and so this day, is just another epic day reminder
“whatever happened to us?”
another day for regrets and blame throwing
“where did i go wrong?”
another day for what if’s and what could have been’s
just another day.

i wish Valentines Day, is just a product of the creative imagination
of poets and creatives alike so that i won’t be sitting here alone
counting the years and counting the times
it could have been me your celebrating Valentines Day with over romantic dinner in a fancy restaurant
but it wasn’t me.

and so this day, is just another day full of remorse and guilt
had i been brave enough to fight for my love would i ended up holding your hand today?
another day to feel sorry for all that i was and all that i failed to do
just another day.

i wish Valentines Day, is just another ordinary day
so that i don’t need to go through over and over again, feeling the pain of not being the one chosen, of not being the one loved
of not being the one you celebrated Valentines Day with, for the last years or so.

My Dearest Muse

there are many things ’bout us that i will never forget,
no matter how i try, i won’t, i bet
just as there are many reasons why i love you
i love you for all the faith you have in me
for all the times you made me see
the things i can’t seem to believe in me
but there’s one thing i love the most ’bout you
you stayed by my side even when i was giving up on you,you never gave up on me, on our love
you never gave up on us

there are many things ’bout us that i will never forget,
no matter how i try, i won’t, i bet
just as there are over a hundred million love songs
and i won’t forget the ones i sing along with you
just as there are many love poems i love and i  wrote
but i love the most the ones i wrote with you
and i love you for all the times you made me write verses that made us smile,
verses that made us cry,
verses that made us giggle like children
verses that made it on the bestsellers collection

there are many things ’bout us that i will never forget,
no matter how i try, i won’t, i bet
just as there are many occasions i was wrong
and i won’t forget the many times you forgave me and just smiled
and i love you for all the  joys, the smiles you gave  me
for all the times you pushed me hard, so hard
because you believe in me, more than i believe in myself,
you showed me the most loving,
the most caring, the most daring
version of me i never thought i had

there are many things ’bout us that i will never forget,
no matter how i try, i won’t, i bet
just as there are many reasons i love you
but i love you the most because you never gave up on me even when, at times, i was so rough on you,  you could have walked away,
packed your things and left, just left,
but you stayed, you stayed
even if there seemed no more
reasons to stay

you never gave up on me, that
i will never forget, no matter how i try,
i won’t, i bet
