The Day I Fell in Love💝 Happy Valentine’s Day

that’s the day I fell in love
with…

You remember the day at the gym,
named appropriately enough Black Diamond,
you were chisel cut, but still rough,
you claimed I was checking you out,
but really I wasn’t, I was just looking in,
you remember the day it was a Friday,
you were flexing your muscles in the mirror,
you moved closer so you could see your self clearer.

that’s the day I fell in love
with…

You picked me up in the black Max,
that you parked curbside and waited in,
I knew that you would ask,
When my neighbor began to descend,
the steps before me,
You asked me if he were a friend?
I told you the facts,
I didn’t even know him,
But you just ignored me,
And from this, our first date I would never hear the end.

that’s the day I fell in love
with…

You recall that day in June,
We walked along the beach,
I felt so attuned,
with the gulls by the shore,
I walked amongst them each,
without disturbing them or
making them fly out of reach,
but when you tried,
the birds got startled at your feet.
that day we laughed ’til we cried.
One of the best days we’d ever meet.

that’s the day I felI in love
with…

You remember the day I met your family,
You introduced me as your friend,
It was the day your elder sister,
brought home fraternal twins,
And when you rose up to assist her,
I desired a family then,
but you already had two daughters
from a past relationship,
with whom you couldn’t be tauter,
you said you’d consider a son,
giving me hope and stringing me on,

that’s the day I fell in love
with…

You remember the day she phoned,
and I star sixty-nined your home,
I got a message but not of your voice alone,
then I understood your antics,
straight from the player with home court advantage,
You wanted to have your cake
With pudding too,
you were a snake,
with your just desserts due.

that’s the day I fell in love
with…

You were a long study,
too long to be so unworthy,
but like a fool I remained your buddy
too long for someone with hands so dirty,
but relationships have complications,
uneven dividends of me and you,
unresolved equations,
that don’t always add up to two,
but there is always a remainder,
and I became the first value,
of the subtraction, the minuend,
and you my desired subtrahend,
Can no longer run interference
and that has made all the difference,

that’s the day I fell in love
with…

ME💋
