Will you be my Valentine?

Did you know this?
Its older than we think
Saint Valentine’s Day.
commonly shortened to Valentine’s Day,
is an annual holiday held on February 14
celebrating love and affection between intimate companions.
The holiday is named after one or more early Christian martyrs named Valentine and was established by Pope Gelasius I in 496 AD.
It is traditionally a day on which lovers express their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as “valentines”).
The holiday first became associated with romantic love
in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages,
when the tradition of courtly love flourished
Thats what I found out at Wikipedia
No,  my Valentine isn’t as romantic as that
He isn’t one for flowers or surprises 
He’s just nice and strong and comforting
August 1960
He’s been around a long time
and still fills my heart with joy
(well most of the time)
