Happy Valentine’s Day

To me, autumn leaves in the shape of a heart are better than a heart-shaped box of chocolates. Photo found on Pinterest.

Despite a recent post about hating Valentine’s Day, I am a closet romantic, and still believe in love and all its power.

In lieu of flowers, chocolates, perfume, jewelry, champagne, or an expensive dinner under the stars, I found these quotes about love to share with you on this Valentine’s Day. I hope you enjoy them. I was also recently reminded of one of the most romantic songs ever recorded. Thanks to Mad Men for the recommendation.

The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face

Roberta Flack

The first time ever I saw your face
I thought the sun rose in your eyes
And the moon and the stars were the gifts you gave
To the dark and the endless skies

The first time ever I kissed your mouth
I felt the earth move in my hand
Like the trembling heart of a captive bird
That was there at my command my love

And the first time ever I lay with you
I felt your heart so close to mine
And I knew our joy would fill the earth
And last till the end of time my love The first time ever I saw your face
Your face, your face
