Who says Valentine’s Day isn’t a real holiday? Not President Obama.

On the Ellen Show on Thursday afternoon, The President and First Lady shared special Valentine’s Day messages for each other. Michelle Obama (presumably the romantic of the two), started off with a poem, which she shared with the President via video:

Roses are red
Violets are blue
You are the president
And I am your boo

Not to be out-shined by his wife, President Obama took to the stage of the Ellen Show to film his own message for Michelle: “Somebody call the situation room, ’cause things are about to get hot,” he said, after which he promised the First Lady a special Valentine’s Day meal of zucchini bread and “veggies on a plate, just the way you like them.”

And while most of his message was in jest, the President ended with a tinge of sentimentality: “I’ve made a lot of great decisions as president, but the best decision I ever made was choosing you.”
