At the restaurant, I order cake for two
On this Valentine’s Day as a present.
He’s late yet again, but that’s not new.
The cake arrives but he doesn’t.

I stick a fork in mine, trying to get a handle
On this dilemma, and pass the time by
Talking to inanimate objects. I tell the candle,
β€œYou’re as bright as ever!” as I begin to cry.

He stood me up, the lout! But no, I hear a voice sing,
β€œSorry I’m late! I had something to attend to.”
He sits and pulls out a sparkling diamond ring,
β€œWill you marry me?” he asks. I smile, β€œI do!”
