Valentines

By Jose Lozano

How long has it been since a man got to be with you
When you knew you had to be with him
And he knew he had to be with you
How often has it ended in pure pain and heartache
Why is it that it's o.k. for you to suffer for him
But it seems bad for him to suffer for you.
Does it make him less of a man if he cries for you.

As I sit here thinking of things to write
I can't help but wonder what you are doing tonight
A night that is so special for lovers
A night that is so hard for others.
Valentines is supposed to be about loving one another
Yet when you're lonely it's about Sadness and pain.
It's about feelings that drive you insane
I can't help but wonder if you are with someone I know.
I can't help but wonder if you are thinking of me.
I can't help but wonder if his love makes you whole
I can't help but wonder if you will ever be with me.
I don't know much about you,
But I know that I need you dearly.
More than you can imagine,
More than the stars need to shine
More than the sun needs the heat
More than my words need to rhyme
More than my heart needs to beat
Will you ever think of me more than a friend
And just enjoy life with me like you should
Will you ever forget what others have said
And trust me with your heart if could
I think of you at home thinking of me
Like I am doing right now.
Hoping that one day my phone will ring
And I can hear your voice at the other end.
I can't help but wonder if you are the one meant for me
I can't help but wonder if you are thinking of me
I can't help but wonder if you ever cry for me.
I can't help but wonder if our love is meant to be.
I keep myself busy as much as I can
Just to not think about you.
But then comes the night and I wish you were here
But that's just a wish that will never come true
