The Happy Rose - Postcard Friendship Friday #98

Valentine's Day is just a little over a month away.  I adore this holiday.  It gives me another chance to celebrate the love of my dear husband.  I have been married to a wonderful man for over 28 years.  What a delightful adventure our life has been! 
The poem on this postcard is quite lovely.

I wish I were the happy rose,
That nestles near your cheek.
And breathes against its sister rose,
The love I dare not speak.

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

*  NOTE: You don't have to stick to the theme I choose each Friday. Just put up the postcards you love and tell us why you like them.

Happy PFF. A wise card. Yes, you have to celebrate your love, so send him a valentine's card.

Great postcard. I've seen little evidence in the UK of Valentine's Day being just around the corner, although bizarrely the TV adverts here are pushing Easter Eggs already! Happy PFF.
