Valentine

My heart has made its mind up
And I'm afraid it's you.
Whatever you've got lined up,
My heart has made its mind up
And if you can't be signed up
This year, next year will do.
My heart has made its mind up
And I'm afraid it's you.

    The poem speaks to a quality of mind that has made peace with its decision. That is what the poem is about. A commitment to the future, whatever it may mean. This is a serious matter to contemplate.

    The beauty of simplicity.
    The point where one's heart pounds in your chest and one eagerly awaits the response.
