No Valentine

I need to find a valentine
to give away this heart of mine.

But if I find a valentine
does that include a rose from the vine?

And if I get a rose from the vine
and my thumb gets pricked is that a sign?

My thumb is bleeding the color of wine
because I had to go and find a valentine.

Perhaps next year I will only dine
with someone who’s NOT my valentine.

I know that I will be fine
with or without a valentine.
