- Valentine's Day, February 14th, is a day where we tell those who are dear to
us how much they mean to us. It is not to say that we don't express love on other days of the year, but on this special day that has been set aside it is customary to send valentines messages, cards and give gifts to the special someone in your life.
It is a day of romance, a day for finding the right words to say, a day to stop and purposely tell the one that you love how special they are.
Romantic Love Poems
- May these romantic poems remind you how fragile love can be.
Mary Bradish once said, "I think we fall in love with people who have
something to teach us. And sometimes that is a hard lesson and sometimes
it's a safe and loving lesson."
Always remember that the shortest way to express your feelings is to
say, "I love you."
Three brief words that hold such meaning.
There is no better
summary of how you feel than these three simple words.
I found myself a life long love,
One who knows and respects me.
Life together could not be any better,
How lucky can one person be?
I found myself a love so great,
Sometimes myself I pinch
Until now I didn't think this was possible,
You make lovin you a cinch!
I Would Live in Your Love
Poet: Sara Teasdale
I would live in your love as the sea-grasses live in the sea,
Borne up by each wave as it passes,
drawn down by each wave that recedes;
I would empty my soul of the dreams that have gathered in me,
I would beat with your heart as it beats,
I would follow your soul as it leads.
I can only hope for this loving grace,
To continue and never end.
You are more than I have ever deserved,
I cannot even comprehend.
I love you more than I probably share,
May you understand and see this truth.
I always have and always will,
Now in my prime, started in my youth.
It is hard to describe the feeling of love
The feeling of your heart skipping a beat
Or of flying like that of a dove
These are the feelings I have when we meet.
But now the years have past
And our love continues to grow stronger
It has grown so very vast
I'll love you forever and even longer.
Many Types of Love
Poet: Theodore W. Higginsworth
There are many types of love that abound:
For our children that demonstrates our adoration.
For our sisters and brothers, they are the special others.
For our parents and their accomplishments.
For our friends on them we can always depend.
For our neighbor should never be a labor.
For our wife is a big part of our life.
But above all is the love for God that all men are called.
If I were to compare our love to a tree
Our roots grow stronger I'm sure you'd agree.
We sometimes face winds that are strong
But you and I face them together all along.
And our family is like the branches of the tree
Most of the time happy but at times they disagree.
And even as we age we continue to grow
Just like each season even when it snows.
We have learned how to bend
With each storm that sends
Challenges and disappointments
That seem to have no end.
But each year we find that our leaves they do bloom
And our love for each is like the best perfume.
Love and Friendship
Poet: Emily Dickinson
Love is like the wild rose-briar,
Friendship like the holly-tree
The holly is dark when the rose-briar blooms
But which will bloom most constantly?
The wild-rose briar is sweet in the spring,
Its summer blossoms scent the air;
Yet wait till winter comes again
And who will call the wild-briar fair?
Then scorn the silly rose-wreath now
And deck thee with the holly's sheen,
That when December blights thy brow
He may still leave thy garland green.
I have never been a man of many words,
Expressing my feelings is always hard.
The right words never come to mind,
So I try to find them in a card.
Cards can only get me so far,
They are good but never complete.
They touch on the basics of love,
But are almost too vaguely discrete.
So how can a man like myself communicate,
A love so deep as ours?
There are always ways to express our love,
Such as presents, chocolate or flowers
External gifts are fun to receive,
But there meaning is often short-lived.
Let every glance, every kiss and every sweet word I say,
Be remembered so long as you live.
More Short Love Poems
Oh my love but if I could,
give you the stars and moon above.
Filling all your life with beauty,
and all my endless love.
Charles Johnson, Love Poems and More From the Heart and Soul of Man
If my love were an ocean, there would be no more land.
If my love were a desert, you would see only sand.
If my love were a star- late at night, only light.
And if my love could grow wings, I'd be soaring in flight.
Jay Asher, Thirteen Reasons Why
Too Slow for those who Wait,
Too Swift for those who Fear,
Too Long for those who Grieve,
Too Short for those who Rejoice;
But for those who Love,
Time is not. Henry vanDyke
There are many feelings stirring strong
Deep within my heart;
Telling me that finally
Love has made its start.
Ara John Movsesian, Love Poems for Cards and Letters
When you're in love
It's not just something of the heart
But also of the mind
And you wish to never be apart
Darren G. Burton, Love Poems and Sentiments from the Heart
Do not love material things
As happiness they will never bring.
Love other people, love them well
Wear your love on your lapel.
Do not love to work all the time
As you will only earn an extra dime
Spend time with your family and your friends
As we truly don't know when our lives will end.
It is in loving, not in being loved,
The heart is blessed.
It is in giving, not in seeking gifts,
We find out quest.
Whatever be your longing or your need, that give;
So shall your soul be fed and you indeed shall live.
Life is too short not to express
Your feelings, your devotion you must confess
Show appreciation and for those you care
Let your love be known so they are aware.
As Charles Dickens once said, "A loving heart is the truest wisdom."
Sometimes we have difficulty expressing our feelings, let these verses help you express
your feelings. To use the verse from the poem, I Have A Friend,
"If you love someone, tell them. Don't be afraid to express yourself."
When we look at special days of love there are many
valentines day quotes
and love quotes
that try and express the meaning of love.
