I Love You, My Valentine

That day the sky was olive green
And the two green parrots
repeated the words
'I love you'
Who exactly taught the birds
to speak those words
I didn't know
But I knew it was easy to tell these words
in a moment of togetherness
The sun no longer shone in the sky
It was not the sunset still
She promised to come before the sunset.
She came and sat close to me.

She looked like an angel
To my surprise, she was clad in olive green
She was for me the sky
She greeted me with a casual 'hi'
She asked a series of questions
One question was - 'What date is today? '
I told '14th Feb'
'And just that? Nothing more? '
I stared at her face and she looked at the seashore.

She was silent in the twilight
Wanted to tell me something, all right.
But what did she want to say?
She only said 'Don't you know it's Valentine's Day?
I got back to my senses.
I was not in mine minutes before.
It was Valentine's day sure
It was, I heard, 'a lover's day, sure.
I wanted to apologise
I was so busy telling her 'I love you'
I missed what day it was.

But when I realised that it was Valentine's Day
I forgot her call, her messages
I only remembered those three magical words
'I love you'
But she had left the place long ago
She is gone, gone for ever...
Still when every year Valentine's Day comes
I feel as if it were my first love day
And I will whisper in my beloved's ears 'I love you'.
