Valentine Poem

I am a triangle, you are a square
We are both different
But we make a great pair.
What I like most
About you and me
Our exterior angles
Equal 360.
My little sister, she likes you too.
She’s similar to me which is why she likes you.
You’re a quadrilateral, I am not,
But we’re living proof that, that cannot stop
Our love,
Our friendship,
Our silliness too,
Gosh little polygon
I love you.
Together forever you and I,
Sitting together eating pie.
It’s given that we’re meant to be friends
With a life-long friendship that will never end.
I’ve come to the conclusion over the years,
To forget out differences and forget our fears,
And not to assume they get in the way,
From my angle it’s better that way.
Our hearts are congruent that is for sure,
Big and kind and can endure any bisect of another shape.
Oh square you’re so great.
Our relationship can go up and down,
Like a slope of a line,
But I have found that with hard work and a little fun,
We’ll always rise up over the run.
To measure how much I love you
Would be impossible to do, but I can tell you,
That our love is infinite and there is no end,
Just like a line that never bends.
I know that our love and friendship will last,
And to think it all started
In algebra class.
