Oh Valentine

Oh Dear, you say

life is complicated

not moving in straight lines

but in pirouettes

constantly changing

the next move more delicate

than the previous one.

I’m learning, you say

the steps quite fast

still falling sometimes

and taking a few missteps

but I’ll get up and continue

going with the flow

of the delicate melodies.

Oh Valentine, you say

that’s the dance of my life

and I’m happy

to dance with you.
