This is almost too “cute” for me to even post, but here it is, a Hallmark-card-level-sappy poem I wrote, with the inherently romantic fourteen lines, and gave to my incredible wife, along with a gift, on the Valentine’s Day before our wedding. I wrote it thinking back on that awkward time before you tell someone you love romantically that you do indeed love them. That really can be a super saccharine moment, especially for young lovers.

This might sound real corny,
But it is all the truth:
From the first time that we met,
You were the most awesome girl I knew.
Yeah, I’ve got to say you captured me
Without even trying to,
And I’m not sure that you like me,
Though I kinda’ think you do,
But really what I need to say
Is that I do like you.
I guess you probably know that,
But I’m not sure that you do.
So here I am just telling it
In this valentine to you.
