Be My Valentine - For Ruby Tuesday

The theme for Ruby Tuesday is Valentine's Day and the color red.  Go to the site and read the rules, add your blog to Mr. Linky and join in!

Be My Valentine

I don't believe in fairy tales,
Or Santa Claus and such,
But I do believe in kindness,
And a loving, tender touch.

I don't believe in pots of gold,
At a rainbow's colored end,
But I believe in happiness,
With my very dearest  friend.

I don't believe in lucky charms,
Or in playing games of chance,
But I believe in starry nights,
And the warmth of new  romance.

I don't believe in potions,
In concoctions, or other brews,
But I really do believe in love,
Which Cupid's arrow can infuse!

So on this day for lovers,
I hope you won't decline,
When I come right out and ask you,
If you'll be my Valentine!

    I think it's great to spend Valentine's with a group of single friends - who knows, you might just meet that special someone if Cupid is out and about!!
