People mean something to us
Not because it’s a must or for attention
Not necessarily about love
But because we want them to.
If you mean a jewel to someone,
Let the person make you the most precious
If you mean a precious stone to someone,
Let the person make you a diamond
Let the person always want you,
To be the best among all treasures.
On this day, I celebrate you
Not because you want me to
Not because it is written somewhere
But because I want to.
I want you to be that light,
That shines when I wallow in the dark
I want you to be that smile,
When my face turns sour
I want you to be my inspiration,
When I feel discouraged
I want you to complete my puzzle,
I want it to be made known
That even in the hardest of times,
We are always going to be us
I want you to be that everything I have,
When I feel I have nothing
I want you to be you,
The you I see and the you I want.
Happy Valentine’s day,
From a heart that cares.
