They say Love hurts
When Love bites,
And Love’s dizzying
When it takes you to heights.
You feel different
When you’re Love-sick,
Bitten by the Love Bug:
A silly Roman Tick.

For all those Lovers
Whose hearts burn aflame,
You may well consider
Why your passions want no tame.
For Love that’s fleeting
Burns hot, then dies,
But Love that’s true
Burns steady thru Tries.
It warms with Humor
When conversation gets cold.
It finds more Beauty
When Youth wrinkles old.
It is patient and anchored
When storms run through;
True Love is who stays
When the rest abandon you.

So on this day
As you’re with your Pick,
Cherish your True Love,
You silly Roman Tick!
