Valentine Poem

The love poem featured below was written by Joseph Martino. Interestingly enough he sent it to me right after I heard the results of a recent study: that 1 in 4 Americans think money is more important than love in a long term relationship or marriage.

Read the Valentines Poem below and then tell us what you think of this study. Which do you think is more important in a relationship or marriage: love or money. Tell us why. Of course we realize that life too complicated to give an either/or answer, but if you had to choose, which would be more important to you and why?

All I Really Need is You

by Joseph P. Martino

all i really need is you
don't care for sleek and fancy jets
and italian sport cars,
the hollywood glitterati and movie stars
vacations at world class resorts and spas.

all i really need is you

i can take or leave sailing to
exotic destinations on luxurious yachts,
cocktails with the jet set and super smart.

all i really need is you

i have no desire to own a masterpiece
or any other great work of art,
purchased from auction houses bid and sold,
exquisite pieces of jewelry
dripping with diamonds and gold.

all i really need is you

i'm not interested in a chalet
nestled on a swiss ski resort,
or sailing on a luxury liner
to every foreign port,
that would be my last resort.

all i really need is you

soaking up the sun is not my idea of fun,
if truth be told,
the south pacific islands leave me cold,
diving for sunken caribbean treasures,
i'm not so bold.
for i have my pirate's bounty right here at home,
and i have no need to ever roam.

all i really need is you

Do you have recurring issues in your marriage, like constant fights or hidden hurts and resentments? Read The Us Factor review, a review of a new relationship program that teaches you the relationship skills to get back to the love in your marriage. I highly recommend this program and it makes a great Valentine's Day gift for you and your spouse or partner.
