Blessings are the things we take for granted.
Each holiday's a light that helps us see.
Most know the Earth is utterly enchanted
Yet walk through life and love mechanically.
Valentine's Day is love's well-timed ablution,
A ritual bath in sweet reality.
Love brings us the gift of absolution,
Enveloping our guilt in innocence.
No touch inspires so swift a revolution,
Translating lust-filled longings into sense.
In your love's a blessing I will sing,
Needing just your joy for recompense,
Embracing words that make the heart take wing.
