NOT ONE CARD
The sun shone through my window
Valentines day romance and kisses,
I rushed downstairs to pick up the post
Not one had answered my wishes.
My heart sank to my feet not one card
The tears dripped down my cheeks,
I had been looking forward to this day
I had waited for Valentines for weeks.
I went and made a pot of tea
I drank three cups and more,
I couldn't think of anything else
Except more post coming through the door.
I wished and I wished and wished
That one card had been forgotten,
The postman would come back in a minute
But no, an hour went by my luck was rotten.
I sulked until my chin touched the floor
I mean I didn't ask a lot in life,
Just a little card to cheer my dreary day
But I didn't even get one from the wife.
That is, not until I walked into the lounge
And there sat a teddy as bright as can be,
With happy Valentines I love you
And a card with many kisses especially for me.
