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.
