Happy Valentines Day ©


This is my 48th Valentines Day and I find myself alone for another year but I am not bothered in the least by it for some strange reason.
It could be because I know I have been loved, I am loved by a number of women and I love them just as much or maybe I ‘m just happy at the moment with the status of my life the way it is.
That is until someone comes along and sparks it up some more.

Over the years I had the pleasure of being in love with some special women but as time went on and we grew, paths changed but some of those memories I still hold fondly.
Like everyone else when I was with someone I did go out and get the chocolates and flowers to give to the one I loved but to me it was no different than any other day because I loved the person I was with on a daily basis and I always picked something up for her if I was somewhere buying something for me, I believe most of us are the same way.
The problem is to many times we don’t acknowledge it as an act of love but as a duty.

One day does not define your love for someone, it can’t because you just can’t love a person for just one day and the next that love is gone but what it does, is it slows down the pace of life for one day for you to stop and enjoy your partner a littler more than you usually have time for.
Our lives get more complicated as we get older and our family grows adding more responsibilities to the ones you already had, needing more of your time and that comes off the top.
The time we had to spend with the person we fell in love with becomes shorter and the tensions of life dominate much of any spare time that could be found together only souring the moment.

I know Valentines Day is a commercial Holiday used by businesses to suck money from our wallets but it doesn’t mean you have to let them get all the satisfaction out of it.
Use this day to go back in time to the beginning.
Shove aside all the responsibilities.
Tell the kids to go bugger off.
Take that person you love and find the reason you fell in love with them in the first place and once more even if it’s but for just a night, explore it for what little time you have away from all the fucken bullshit life tries to trip you up with and know, when the clock strikes midnight marking the day after, you are still curled up in bed with that special person you fell in love with oh so long ago, for some reason even if they do piss you off most of the fucken time.

There is nothing sweeter than love or richer.

Happy Valentines Day
Walker

Being married and faithful, I wish you a Happy Valentine's Day,
in a totally platonic and non-romantic way.
:)
Hug your daughters and your mother, hey, even hug your pesky brother.
With all the love sent out to you,
I cherish you as my friend too.

upset waitress said...

This day is like any other day. I will love on myself all day.

BikerCandy said...

Great post Walker and count me as one of those that love you too.

I spent the evening exactly like you described...with the one man I love more than anything in the world...and waking up with him this morning with our legs entangled and his arms wrapped around me was even better. Your words described my life yesterday perfectly. Thank you for that!

Walker said...

upset waitress: Yes it is like any other day should be, loving yourself :)

Walker said...

BikerCandy: That's the way it should be always.
I am Happy You woke up in your dream :)

Dotm said...

Didn`t see any Grandchildren,
but saw one daughter and her Husband and one of my twins stopped by, then the youngest daughter called me and shortly after I hung up the phone the youngest son called me. So, I
was remembered by most of the kids. The other twin stopped by the day before. They do try
hard to fill in that empty space.
Have a wonderful week-end. The best to your Mom and Dad.

Teresa said...

I hope your day was all that you wanted it to be.

A good post....and I like the new music.

Walker said...

Dotm: My parents are doing good concidering what life has dished out to them today.
You ha ve a large brood so I expected you to be on the phone playing catch with the phone calls.
Its nice that they fill in the gaps and show you the love all athe time.

Mine called me up and asked if i would take her to the movies.

Walker said...

Teresa: I like Stevie Ray Vaughn it was a sad day when he passed away.
I had seen him four times over the years.

I went to bed early and sleep for 12 hours.
So you could say I spent in bed LOL
