BEing My Own Valentine
Lots of years I have felt like one of those people standing 8-deep outside of a department store window watching a black-and-white television.
I mean, I have felt myself at that remove from BEing anyone's Valentine.
Felt on the outside looking in.
Even felt sorry for myself.
Here's the thing:
I don't NEED someone else to "want me" to BE theirs.
I don't NEED candy, flowers, or pretty cards to know I matter.
That I am, indeed, the World to someone.
MayBE I shouldn't BE saying this out loud, but I really am all that [and more] to myself.
That's what I think and feel and BElieve.
Every. Single. Day.
[although there are days when I DO get on my last nerve!!!]
So my mailbox won't BE brimming over.
No flowers will BE delivered to my door.
And I won't have to curb my eating of chocolates and other sweets.
But I will BE someone's Valentine.
I will BE Mine.
Happy Valentine's Day!!!
