My Love Day

Ehsan Sehgal

Love does not depend on days,
The weeks and the years
It always exists,
It was; it is,
It will remain
Love is not the business,
Not the politics,
Not the game,
Not the flirt
Nor has labels,
As like;
Valentine's Day
That doesn't represent love,
That is the creation of
The masters of the business world
It is just the commercial day
In its real concept
That imposed on the minds
Through emotional, and sensitive way
It is more matter of more material than love
Why should I believe
I am not the fool
No one can misuse me
I am not the tool
I will not wait
To proving my love
On that specific day
My love exists every minute
I don't need to prove that
In such a way
My every day is my love day
