I realize this is a day or two late,
but Valentine's Day I sure think is great.
It's a time for friends and a time for love,
and delicious little treats from the candy-maker Dove.
There are many things I love on that day,
people and gestures that make February seem not so gray.
These people I would now like to thank,
for always refilling my emotional tank.
I love that on Fridays it's Chipotle for lunch,
Megan and Katie are a mighty fine bunch.
I love that every morning by 6,
Eric is up discussing the musical impact of Jimi Hendrix.
I love trading workouts with friends at the rec.,
and I couldn't survive without the bi-weekly pay check.
I love Colorado and the sunny days here,
but I wish Spring Break was a little more near.
I love that my dad listens to only one station,
it's Rush Limbaugh all day on the EIB nation.
I love that while all the flowers are wilting
my mom has already gotten back to her quilting.
I love that my sis will soon be a Ram,
in all of her rodeo and horse-riding glam.
I love that on Wednesdays my opinion I give,
even when I sound like an angry, red-neck, white-trash, conservative.
Last but not least I'd like to thank the Collegian,
for helping me write less like a heathen.
Now I know this is boring and really quite dumb,
but I was out of ideas and felt like a bum.
So thanks to everyone for listening to me,
I hope you are all still filled with Valentine's glee.
