Valentine's Day is here,

Cupid's arrows all around glow,

Flowers and chocolates sent to capture a woman's heart,

Couples celebrate their love over candlelit dinners in full flow.

Valentine's Day is an occasion for love,

An occasion not necessarily for romantic love between a woman and man,

Let's be kind and loving towards others,

Reach out to someone who needs love if you can.

    Loneliness is a terrible position to be in - when I retired both my wife and I joined different groups and we have a large circle of friends as a result - you onlt get out what you put in - but it's not so easy for many others. Fine write about this awful problem.

          GOOD EVENING FINE (Its 9am Friday here : NZ !) In my job in the UK I often do home visits (Im a PHYSIO) and wit some elederly imobile poeple Im the only one they saw all day. Shy younger People can also be lonely ! You have to be a Friend to have a Friend ! I attend Pensioners Groups to talk about PHYSIO & Exercise etc ~ The poeple who attend (weekly) are not lonely and have made Friends through the GROUP. Individuals in Retirement Homes can be just as lonely as shut ins.
          Valentine Day accentuates the companionship of the MAJORITY and amplifies the Lonliness (and often misery) of the MINORITY ! One LADY I visit (in the UK) showed me photos of her as a Teen (BEAUTIFUL) : Lots of Valentines : BUT now as a childless Widow : no close Family and no Church : she was sad & lonely. We should befriend the Lonely and make some time for them ! Thanks for Caring : Yours ANGELA 🧡

            It's 22.25pm here in the UK.

            The weather must be lovely in New Zealand. It is still cold here in the UK.

            Thank you for sharing all of your experiences and reading the poem.

            Much appreciated.

            We must all reach out to others.
