Alphabe Thursday - "R" Is For Romance - February 10, 2011

"R" is for romance,
Such a wonderful thing,
It's that tingling feeling,
That makes your heart sing.

It's not just for Valentine's,
But for all the year through,
You can make life romantic,
In small things that you do.

A dozen roses are lovely,
But one stem will suffice,
If given with love,
And something else nice!

Just an evening at home,
Sipping wine by the fire,
Can be the best kind of date,
With the man you admire.

A casual afternooon,
Spent in the park,
With two star crossed lovers,
Can be such a lark.

Often times, romance,
Continues to bloom,
And next thing you know,
There's a bride and a groom!

Keep nurturing romance,
Treat your honey with care,
Let them know that your love,
Will always be there.
