They did it without fanfare, or buckets of roses
Without diamond watches and rings on their noses
They did it without Hallmark, Godiva or Ecards
Whobaubles, Love-Credit, i-Whatsis or Wineses
Why, they even did it with no money at all!
And the Grinch sat and he thought
And he thought and he thought
Until finally he realized what the Whos already knew
And his tiny Grinch heart, why it grew and it grew
It grew just as big as the smile he now wore
Just maybe, he thought (though his thinker was sore)
Perhaps Valentines Day means a little bit more!
It’s not the commercials, the money or cards
Or champagne or flowers or chocolates by yards
Though all those are nice, the Grinch thought, to be true
Valentines Day is simply about loving YOU!
So whether you’re a couple, a group or just single
It’s a day for your heart to get out there and mingle
Show kindness and joy, let your heart be ungloved
Tell yourself and your friends how much you’re all LOVED!
