Happy (?) VD

So the day has come and gone.
And I didn’t cry.
And I didn’t sigh.
And I didn’t whine.
And I didn’t wonder why
I had to spend another
V-day alone.
Because I didn’t.
I had freinds.
I had family.
I had people I cared about.
And they were there for me.
Some called.
Some wrote.
Some sent E-cards.
Some just smiled.
Some gave candy.
Some gave hugs.
All were appreciated.
So next year
I won’t cry
I won’t sigh
I won’t whine
And I won’t wonder why
I have to spend another
V-day alone.
Because whether or not
I am in love with someone
I am never alone
With such wonderful people
In my life.
