Wordshine: Valentine’s Day Poem

Valentine’s Day is around the corner!  This reminds me of a poem that I wrote and posted here a couple years ago when I was courting a good friend of mine – I fell in love and wanted to be more than just friends. She had told me she wasn’t ready to date yet, but I was so inspired by her that I wrote a short snippet of a poem – or a poetic thought – every day for her for over three months. She would wake up and find a new poem in her phone – we were communicating using Blackberry Messenger at the time. (Anyone remember that?)  Anyway, she started to call them her daily “Morning wordshine”   …  I remembered that story today and decided to repost it in honour of another Valentine’s Day fast approaching.  Enjoy!

of voicing my need! Now the deed is done…

and one can just
