  3. I Love You Dear
    Poet Unknown

    Because I love you, dear,-
    Because my heart sings all day long,
    A song of love, a new sweet song,
    I find I love the whole world more.

    Because I love you, dear, -
    I love the little ones I pass,
    And see, in each dear lad and lass
    The flower of love like ours, dear heart.

    Because I love you, dear, -
    I'm tenderer than I have ever been,
    The thought of you comes in between
    Me and an impulse less than true.

    Because I love you, dear, -
    Ah! what in all the world is there
    I cannot suffer, cannot dare?
    Because you're all the world to me.

  4. Valentines Day Poems For Him

  5. Because I Love You
    by Sarah K. Bolton

    I cannot bring you wealth," she said;
    I cannot bring you fame or place
    Among the noted of the race;
    But I can love you.

    When trials come to test you, sweet,
    I can be sunlight to your feet;
    My kiss your precious lips shall greet,
    Because I love you.

    If sickness comes, beside your bed
    I will bend low with quiet tread,
    And pray God's blessing on your head,
    Because I love you.

    Only myself, my all, I bring;
    But count it, sweet, a precious thing
    To give my life an offering,
    Because I love you.

  6. Valentines Roses
    Poet: Julie Hebert, 2012

    Roses are red, violets are blue,
    I can't believe, how much I love you.

    Our time together has been so sweet.
    Especially when we, get together to meet.

    Speaking is great, but cuddling much more.
    I love to tell you, how much I adore.

    So here we are, on this Valentine's Day,
    With lots of love, being sent your way.

  7. Valentines Surprise
    Poet: Julie Hebert, 2012

    I have a treat for you,
    But it's only for your eyes.
    Well, it's not so much a treat,
    But a big exciting surprise.

    Why a surprise for you?
    Well, it's valentine's day of course.
    And today I'll treat you good,
    As my love I want to enforce.

    You may want it now,
    but tonight you'll have to wait.
    Your dinner I will serve,
    Along with something you'll find great.

    Now I know I'm teasing you,
    As this poem gives no hint.
    Just be patient, it will come,
    Tonight you'll get more than just a mint!

  8. Valentines Love
    Poet: Julie Hebert, 2012

    Happy Valentine's Day to you,
    Happy Valentine's Day to me.
    It's time to go out and celebrate,
    We'll dance and drink with glee.

    Then when we finish celebrating,
    We will come back home.
    We will share our love for each other,
    Our love will never be unsaid.

  9. St. Valentine's Day
    Poet: Eloise A. Skimings

    Young Cupid awakes,
    His arrows he takes,
    And swiftly they fly from the bow,
    And hard is the heart.
    That withstands the dart
    Of the rosiest rogue I know.

    He quietly steals
    One's heart for his meals.
    And cares not how he is treated;
    If he aims in vain
    He tries it again.
    Anil never was yet defeated.

    So here's to the health
    Of the god of wealth.
    Held within Love's golden meshes;
    Which will never rust
    While Cupid we trust
    With the human heart so precious.

  10. You my love are all I ever need.
Julie Hebert

    Valentines Day Poems For Her

  11. You And Only You
    Poet: J. Hebert, 2012

    Today is a very special day,
    Not just for you but also for me.
    Today I get to tell you,
    How much I love thee.

    I'll show you with gifts and flowers,
    Maybe an evening out too.
    I've never loved someone so special,
    As how much I feel I love you.

    You're kind, loving and wonderful,
    These things that not everyone is.
    But that's why I'll love you forever,
    You'll always keep me in a quiz.

    So today I want to say something,
    To you and never another.
    Happy Valentine's Day my darling,
    There will never be any other.

  12. Sunshine In My Heart
    Poet: Lydla Avery Coonley

    Within the deeps of her dear eyes
    The spirit of the sunshine lies,
    And when she turns their light on me,
    The shadows of a lifetime flee.
    Spring, joy, and love become my part,
    For she is sunshine in my heart.

  13. Love And Reason
    by Nixon Waterman

    The lily's lips are pure and white without a touch of fire;
    The rose's heart is warm and red and sweetened with desire.
    In earth's broad fields of deathless bloom the gladdest lives are those
    Whose thoughts are as the lily and whose love is like the rose.

  14. Valentine's Day
    Poet: Charles Fenno Hoffman

    The snow yet in the hollow lies;
    But, where by shelvy hill 'tis seen.
    In myriad rills it trickling flies
    To lace the slope with threads of green;
    Down in the meadow glancing wings
    Flit in the sunshine round a tree.
    Where still a frosted apple clings.
    Regale for early Chickadee:

    And chestnut buds begin to swell.
    Where flying squirrels peep to know
    If from the tree-top, yet, 'twere well
    To sail on leathery wing below —
    As gently shy and timorsome.
    Still holds she back who should be mine;
    Come, Spring, to her coy bosom, come.
    And warm it toward her Valentine!

    Come, Spring, and with the breeze that calls
    The wind-flower by the hill-side rill,
    The soft breeze that by orchard wails
    First dallies with the dalfodil—
    Come lift the tresses from her cheeky
    And let me see the blush divine.
    That mantling there, those curls would seek
    To hide from her true Valentine,

    Come, Spring, and with the Red-breast's note,
    That tells of bridal tenderness,
    Where on the breeze he'll warbling float
    Afar his nesting mate to bless —
    Come, whisper, 'tis not always Spring!
    When birds may mate on every spray —
    That April boughs cease blossoming!
    With love it is not always May!

    Come, touch her heart with thy soft tale,
    Of tears within the floweret's cup,
    Of fairest things that soonest fail,
    Of hopes we vainly garner up —
    And while, that gentle heart to melt.
    Like mingled wreath, such tale you twine,
    Whisper what lasting bliss were felt
    In lot shared with her Valentine.

  15. My Wish
    Poet: Byron Pulsifer, 2021

    If I could wish for just one thing
    It would be that happiness would bring
    A love so strong,
    Forever be a lasting bond
    I love you more and more each day
    I love you more than words can say!

  16. Announcing My Love
    Poet: Julie Hebert, 2012

    I want to proclaim my love,
    On this cliche of Valentine's Day.
    This isn't really how I planned it,
    It just ended up this way.

    I wanted to do it different,
    At a time when love wasn't sold.
    But I guess you can't just plan it,
    Love just comes and must be told.

    So regardless of this day,
    I am happy to announce.
    That I have fallen victim,
    And of this, I must pronounce.

    I am so in love with you,
    You'll be my morning dove.
    I must say one more thing,
    Happy Valentines Day, My Love.

  17. Power Of Love

    Poet: Bernhart Paul Holst

    A word is but a simple sign
    Our mental status to reveal,
    Or our motives to conceal,
    Or the false with truth combine.
    Not so with our true affection,
    Which flows on with perfect rhyme,
    And the heart feels no dejection
    At the joyous mating time:
    Hate gives out sad, doleful groans,
    Love speaks in the sweetest tones.

    Love was given us from heaven,
    And the heart was taught to love
    By the spirit from above,
    Earthly ills to soothe and leaven.
    Love's the privilege of the mind.
    The soul and reason of all life,
    The law that governs all mankind
    And frees us from the bane of strife:
    Hate seeks to darken and distress,
    Love governs wisely with kindness.

    Love is an Incarnate blessing,
    Springing from the inner soul.
    Making the heartsick fully whole,
    Cheering with its sweet caressing.
    Love has power to soothe the madness
    Of the stern, unkind and cold,
    And to change drear gloom to gladness
    As if turning dross to gold:
    Hate is stern, cold and decoy.
    Love is life and strength and joy.

    Oh! for Cupid's bow and arrow,
    That I might enflame the drear,
    That I might the lonely cheer
    And with love displace keen sorrow.
    As a star speaks to a star,
    As the light springs from the flame,
    So affection, near or far.
    Reciprocates true love again;
    Hate drives every joy away,
    Love kindly calls and bids you stay.

  18. A lifetime of love is created every single day you are together.
 John Gottman

    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, 2017

    Roses are red, violets are blue
    Friends like you make are far and few.

  20. A True Friend
    Poet: C. Pulsifer, 2019

    Many smiles we have shared
    Always willing, you always care.
    Good times we have had many
    I wouldn't trade those times for any!

    When faced with an issue you always try
    To help and be there, you're always on standby.
    I appreciate the support you have given to me
    You're the truest person a friend could be.

    So on this Valentines day
