Valentine Warrior

14 Feb

“The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in.” ~Morrie Schwartz


Valentine Warrior

Every time this warrior
Tells you to live your day
With courage, strength and fearlessness
But many cannot say

The words “I love you” to their mate
Their wives, girlfriends and such
The men who cannot say these words
Have fallen out of touch

With what true bravery’s about
For when they cannot say
These powerful three words, it is
Selfishness they display

They worry that their feelings will
Get hurt and worry too
That their sweetheart will not return
The three words they feel due

They worry it will make things weird
If timing is too early
They worry that it makes them sound
All sensitive and girly

Which is ironic because that’s
Exactly how they seem
When they aren’t true to themselves and
Don’t let their true love beam

It is extremely important
To see this very clear
The things that hold men back from saying
“I love you” is fear

The warrior is devoid of
That self-serving small trait
Never do they allow it
To make their feelings wait

“I love you” they say with passion
“I cherish you, my love”
“I thank the moon and stars for you”
“I thank the Lord above”

“This is how I feel for you
And no apologies
For being passionate, intense
For laying on the cheese”

“And no, I do not need it back
I give it selflessly
I say it so you understand
I’m glad that you’re with me”

The warrior accepts that the
Response may not be same
And if the other party can’t
Repeat, there is no shame

Because the warrior will know
That everyone’s been true
If their partner cannot repeat
Then they are bid “Adieu”

Because the warrior needs a
Warrior mate beside
Someone just as fearless to
Walk with them as their bride

Do not fear those three words, friends
From them the truth’s revealed
And truth is the strongest weapon
That warriors do yield

    Love is the very best weapon, I read somewhere earlier today, Miro. When practiced by enough people enough times in enough places, it really does conquer all, as our man Shakespeare certainly was not afraid to say. May you and your bride have a totally awesome Valentine’s Day!

    Awesome, Miro, I love this – it’s a true Warrior Valentine declaration, stated in true warrior fashion … and that in itself is kind of romantic. Well done, but again, I expected nothing less from you. Happy Valentines Day, Warrior Poet! ~ Julie 🙂
