Not Your Ordinary Day
What's really at the heart of St. Valentine's Day

by Greg Asimakoupoulos
February 10, 2006

It's a day for a card,
maybe roses and candy,
an upscale-ish dinner
with candles and brandy.

It's a day for conveying
what's deep in your heart
while holding hands walking
alone in the park.

It's a day for renewing
those wedding day vows
when, asking God?s blessing,
before Him you bowed.

It's a day to remember
a Saint from the past
whose selfless devotion
beyond daily mass

resulted in prison
and scars on his back
as children who loved him
slipped notes through the slats.

It's a day you can ponder
you're God's valentine.
Both chosen and cherished,
He thinks you're divine.
