Really, I'm just missing people. Friends I haven't seen in a while. Friends I may have seen, but didn't get to spend enough time with. (Is there really ever enough time?)
I don't want romance today. What I would have liked was sitting in a comfortable apartment, with good coffee, a couple of DVDs, people I love, and an endless night. Conversation, relation, bonding, trust--that is what I miss most of all on Valentine's Day. And I am reminded to be grateful for the people who willingly give me these things--even when it's not a holiday.
To those who are especially close to my heart: I miss you so very much right now, and wish for nothing more than to while away the hours speaking of nothing and everything. I love you more than words can say.
