My husband

Today is champagne and roses, love and romance. Enjoy this happy day with your darling. Not all sweethearts are together physically today. Please bear in mind that distance is no barrier to a great relationship. 


By Virginia Close

My husband

is working in faraway land.
I am lonely and think of him
every second of the day.

Many moons and suns, I cry
without halt, for I miss my darling,
his smiles, his touches, and his voice.

To the world to be alone is the saddest
plot of all. Not to be near with
my sweetheart is doom to my heart,

My other half left so long ago to work
in a foreign land for our family to get by;
to give the glorious future to our daughters

and sons. Not only that, but my darling
also wants to hand me the best thing in life.
I am sure that he is suffering from being

apart from his kids and me.
Nevertheless, he endures for he loves
us dearly without stop.

Today is the coming of my love.
I have waited for this moment
every day since he was gone.

My heart is jumping to the sky,
gladness in my totality, food for the soul
that will make my spirit shine.

I am waiting patiently at the airport
with my family and friends. This is
the happiest time in my life.

My body shivers with joy
as I saw my love approaching by.
My breath almost stops when he

kisses me. Oh! My God, thank you
for bringing back my shining armour
in my arms safely and sound.




Love is sweeter when naturally ripens.


It is an exciting month – February; time for love, romance, roses and chocolates to mention a few. Since I was young, Valentine’s day has been celebrated even at school. As early as kindergarten, I can recall that my teacher will help me make few Valentine cards for my parents and friends. Where does Valentine Day come? Many myths I read about it. According to the legend, it started in the Roman pagan festival, the Feast of Lupercalia, goddess of fertility. But why name the February 14 as the Valentine’s Day if it is so?

The Roman Catholic Church celebrated the Feast of Saint Valentine for many years but removed in the General Roman Calendar in 1969 ‒ one of the casualties in the revision. The reason; Saint Valentine had so little known factual – except February 14 was the day of his burial. Albeit removed Saint Valentine; he has a place in the Roman Martyrology. What has Cupid got to do with Valentine? According to the Roman Mythology, Cupid, the son of Venus was a winged boy and mischievous smiles. Cupid has a bow and arrow and whoever he strikes will not die but fall in love.

I chose to believe that Valentine Day comes from Saint Valentine, and I would not argue that this saint has a place in my heart. I will forever think that this human being gave love and devotion tested through times. For he made me feel and will forever remind me that February 14 is the day for love – to give importance to my dearest one. It is the day I celebrate each year not only to receive roses, box of chocolates, lovely greeting card, romantic dinner with champagne and caviar. But to take into account that the man who won my heart entwined with his. In return for all his good deeds, I will forever cherish and value the passion that I accept. Oh! Valentine’s Day, I welcome you every day!

I dedicate this poem to all the woman who are in love and to those who aren’t yet. It is never too late, love is just around the bend. HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY TO ALL!



Beautiful day came to my life;

A man fetching as can be.

Vision of my dream every night;

Handsome as Adonis to cherish me

The smiles he brings is heaven;

Caresses my soul within.

I adore his charm and poise;

His gentle hands repose.

The kisses that he gives;

Twinkles the stars above

Touch of the celestial perceive;

In him, I found the love.

My love everlasting is immortal;

The stellar and all the constellation agree.

With feelings of deception, that will never be.

The purest of my love is all I give to thee.

My breath will cease to stop someday;

My body will leave this earth for sure.

With the soil, it will break into pieces,

Thus, blend with earthen loam.

Although my body is not present

My spirit will still linger;

My love is perpetual and undying.

In heaven, we shall meet again.
