Owner Of A Lonely Heart

Another Valentine’s Day spent away from my Valentine.

Last year I was in Baton Rouge, LA on Valentine’s Day and though I did not forget the day as it relates to Cindy, it did slip my mind when I went out for dinner at a nearby Italian restaurant. Sitting alone in a dining room full of happy smiling couples, I vowed not to relive that experience again if we were apart on Valentine’s Day. So, tonight I’ll be eating dinner in my hotel room and avoiding the “in your face” reminder that we’re not together and out enjoying a romantic meal ourselves.

A quick search of Google reveals the following “lonely heart” references:

Owner of a Lonely Heart – 1983 song by rock band Yes

Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band – 1967 Album by the Beatles

None But The Lonely Heart – 1944 film

The Heart is a Lonely Hunter – 1940 novel

A Lonely Heart – several poems with this title, but my favorite is the one by Myrtle Thomas.

So, to all the lonely hearts out there today, whether because you are away from your love or have not yet found them, this post is for you.

About The Word Of Jeff

I'm a freelance writer and blogger who has written for, among others, Tribune Media Services, Suite101 and Athena Guides. As an intrepid traveler I have chronicled some of my travels at The Verbal Vagabond, my travel blog. And, being an avid amateur photographer, I also have a photography blog spotlighting photos I have taken of areas around my hometown at Postcards From Maggie Valley. Speaking of Maggie Valley, that is where my wife, our Golden Retriever/Border Collie mix, Bella, our Orange Tabby, Tigger and I live in a log cabin on a mountain in Western North Carolina, just at the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I enjoy hiking, camping, art, travel, photography (as mentioned above), and an occasional glass of good wine while reading or writing in front of the fireplace.

    I miss you very much and my heart is very lonely. I too will be spending a quiet evening at home reading. Just not the same when you are a way. I love you and can’t wait for the time to have you in my arms again.
