sentimentality

February the month of love
February the shortest month of the year
never enough time to love
to be with the ones we love
to stop and think about
how much a little love can do
wish I knew
why so few realize
the great capacity they have
to spread love around this great barren land
we leave it up to the poets of the world
to express what little is left
in the near-empty, down-trodden hearts
of those who've grown tired
of living in a world gone cold
feeling they've become too old
to get caught up in the sentimentality
perhaps I too hardened a little when it came to
letting love shine through
when the worst thing one could do
was show their feelings
at the same time
the best thing too
