My Crafty Valentine

Although I may grumble and grouse

About random piles of paper

Strewn throughout the house

I really do love all the little notes

And pictures you leave for me


My life is cluttered by your drive-by drawings

And random acts of artwork laying about

But I can’t seem to toss them in the trash

No more than I would toss you out


So my floor may sparkle

No thanks to floor cleaner of pine

But rather from the sparkly glitter

You leave behind



The mess masterpiece is mine

Just like you

My creative and crafty Valentine

    What a wonderful poem.

    We can’t keep everything they bring home, the sheer weight would collapse the house, but there are treasures to be found. Glimmers of greatness. Flashes of potential brilliance.

    What a beautiful tribute.
    Well done 🙂
