“Happy Valentine’s Day”
I say with a smile
As the darkness grows a little deeper
“Happy Valentine’s Day”
I still mean that from the heart
“Happy Valentine’s Day”
I say with a smile
As the sorrow gets a little stronger

And I miss you, in a strange way
Because right now you’re not even gone
And I miss you, in a new way
It seems I’ve just missed you all along
And I miss you, it’s a long day
To spend without your smile
And I miss you, in a strange way
Because right now you’re not even gone

“Happy Valentine’s Day”
I say with a smile
As the doubt creeps in a little louder
“Happy Valentine’s Day”
From what’s left of my cold heart
“Happy Valentine’s Day”
I say with a smile
And the tears welling up in my eyes

And I miss you, in a strange way
Because right now you’re not even gone
And I miss you, in a new way
It seems I’ve just missed you all along
And I miss you, it’s a long day
To spend without your smile
And I miss you, in a strange way
Because right now you’re not even gone

“Happy Valentine’s Day”
I say as the tears
Streak down my face

Scott Bradford has been building web sites and using them to say what he thinks since 1995, which tended to get him in trouble with power-tripping assistant principals at the time. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Public Administration from George Mason University, but has spent most of his career (so far) working on public- and private-sector web sites. He is not a member of any political party, and brands himself an ‘independent constitutional conservative.’ In addition to holding down a day job and blogging about challenging subjects like politics, religion, and technology, Scott is also a devout Catholic, gun-owner, bike rider, and music lover with a wife, two cats, and a dog.
