but she was neither pink nor pale
she was not his valentine.......
on valentine's day she met him first
then went to meet her husband-to-be..
"you should look the best on my wedding day,"
was all she said, -
before pacing away hastily....
he heard not her silence
she was neither pink nor pale
"she is my best friend" he thought
and feared to follow the trail....
