"My heart has made its mind up"
And I'm afraid it's you.
Whatever you've got lined up,
My heart has made its mind up
And if you can't be signed up
This year, next year will do.
My heart has made its mind up
And I'm afraid it's you."

~ Wendy Cope

Valentines Day Poem: Forgive Me

Forgive me, but I needs must press
One question, since I love you so;
And kiss me, darling, if it 's Yes,
And, darling, kiss me if it 's No!
It is about our marriage day,
I fain would have it even here;
But kiss me if it 's far away,
And, darling, kiss me if it 's near!
Ah, by the blushes crowding so
On cheek and brow, 't is near, I guess;
But, darling, kiss me if it 's No,
And kiss me, darling, if it 's Yes!
And with what flowers shall you be wed?
With flowers of snow? or flowers of flame?
But be they white, or be they red,
Kiss me, my darling, all the same!
And have you sewed your wedding dress?
Nay, speak not, even to whisper low;
But kiss me, darling, if it 's Yes,
And, darling, kiss me if it 's No!

~ Alice Cary

My Valentine

A ray of sun
through curtains glows.
Another time from long ago
I find myself remembering when
My Valentine, you were back then.

The only love I was to know,
I felt the sting of Cupid's bow.
You light my life throughout all time,
And I am yours and you are mine.

Sometimes you seen to disappear;
A mere illusion, you're right here.
For I can feel you in my soul,
Within my heart you make me whole.

In the stillness of my mind,
Your love I know I'll always find.
It's meant to be, Your love's the sign,
My one and only Valentine.

~ Ruth Kuttler

You Are Love

You are a song of love we know
deep within the heart.
You are the bond that binds us
When we are far apart.

You are the strong foundation
for the home in which we live.
You are conscience and compassion,
teaching us to give.

You are the inspiration
that says to do our best.
You are the voice of reason
telling us to rest.

You are an ancient proverb
whispering wisdon in our ears.
You are a source of comfort
that quiets all our fears.

Happy Valentine's Day

As Long As You Love Me

As long as you love me
I'll stay by your side
I'll be your companion
Your friend and your guide

As long as you love me
As long as you care
I'll do anything for you
I'll go anywhere

I'll bring you the sunshine
I'll comfort your fears
I'll gather up rainbows
To chase all your fears

As long as forever
My love will be true
For as long as you love me
I'll only love you

Valentine Smile

On Valentine's Day we think of those
Who make our lives worthwhile,
Those gracious, friendly people who
We think of with a smile.

I am fortunate to know you,
That's why I want to say,
To a rare and special person:
Happy Valentine's Day!

Valentine Treasures

Valentine treasures are people who
have often crossed your mind,
family, friends and others, too,
who in your life have shined
the warmth of love or a spark of light
that makes you remember them;
no matter how long since you've actually met,
each one is a luminous gem,
who gleams and glows in your memory,
bringing special pleasures,
and that's why this Valentine comes to you:
You're one of those sparkling treasures!

~ Joanna Fuchs

Sweet Vintage Valentine Poem

O! I know something I won't tell
Someone loves you awfully well,
If you will be my Valentine
All my secrets shall be thine.
I'll share my pennies all with you,
Give you half my icecream, too,
Give all the world if it were mine,
If you would be my Valentine

Jesus Is My Valentine

Jesus is my Valentine;
I talk to Him each day.
He never, never leaves me;
and always listens when I pray.
Yes He is my Valentine;
there is no love like His.
He is the heart of all that is;
for Him I breathe and live.
He's a Valentine that never lies;
never hurts or breaks.
He always has forgiven me;
for all my past mistakes.
If you only knew my Valentine;
You would love Him too.
For His love is always perfect;
His love is always true.
So if you heart is longing;
for a love that never ends.
for someone that is faithful;
you know you can depend.
call upon my Valentine;
He'll wash away your sin.
He will be your Valentine;
and your dearest, dearest friend.

~ Susan Y. Nikitenko

A Valentine Prayer

I said a Valentine prayer for you
And asked the Lord above
To fill your heart and bless your soul
With the precious gift of love.

I asked Him for sincere love
The kind that's meant to stay
Just like the generous love
You give to those you touch each day.

I prayed for love from family
And from every cherished friend
Then I asked the Lord to give you
His love that knows no end.
