For Jeff

When I Think of You
(For Jeff on Valentine’s Day)


Roses are red… but I don’t care.
Violets are blue… and perhaps that’s true.
Honey is sweet… and meat is savory.
And a knight is known for his bravery.
But none of that matters when I think of you.

Dice go clatter.
Kitten claws tatter.
Windows shatter.
Some poems flatter.
But none of that matters when I think of you.

15 minutes afar.
A long drive in the car.
Grocery store shopping.
Even dirty floor mopping.
All of it is better when I think of you.

Roses are red… but I don’t care.
Violets are blue… and perhaps that’s true.
Honey is one of your favorite treats.
And we both like prestige class feats.
All of it makes me smile when I think of you.

I’m pretty bad at poetry.
But I know you’ll forgive me.
Especially since this is meant to be cheeky.
And because life is sweet and you love me.
There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think of you.

Now my poem is done.
What a relief.
The day is won.
That’s my belief.
Because I love you.

Love,
Jenn
