A Valentine to My Wife
Accept, dear girl, this little token,
And if between the lines you seek,
You’ll find the love I’ve often spoken
The love my dying lips shall speak.
Our little ones are making merry
O’er am’rous ditties rhymed in jest,
But in these words (though awkwardvery)
The genuine article’s expressed.
You are as fair and sweet and tender,
Dear brown-eyed little sweetheart mine,
As when, a callow youth and slender,
I asked to be your Valentine.
What though these years of ours be fleeting?
What though the years of youth be flown?
I’ll mock old Tempus with repeating,
“I love my love and her alone!”
And when I fall before his reaping,
And when my stuttering speech is dumb,
Think not my love is dead or sleeping,
But that it waits for you to come.
So take, dear love, this little token,
And if there speaks in any line
The sentiment I’d fain have spoken,
Say, will you kiss your Valentine?
– Eugene Field
“One Perfect Rose”
“A single flow’r he sent me, since we met,
All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted pure, with scented dew still wet – –
One perfect rose.
I know the language of the floweret.
“My fragile leaves,” it said, “his heart enclose.”
Love long has taken for his amulet
One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent yet
One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it’s always just my luck to get
One perfect rose.”
“How Do I Love Thee”
“How Do I Love Thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being an ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of everyday’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints,–I love thee with the Breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life!–and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.”
“On this blue Valentine’s Day,
Your memory invades my world,
Like a monstrous army,
Leaving destruction in its path,
On this blue Valentine’s Day,
All my fears are realized,
Abandoned and blue,
Alone and blue…..”
Ricardo Saul LaRosa
“I reminisce for you,
I reminisce the days,
I try to forget,
But the feelings never go away.
I reminisce for you,
I reminisce the nights,
For the things we did,
And how it was so right.
I reminisce for the love,
For the love that was always there,
I reminisce, I reminisce and I know in my heart,
That you really did care.
Even though my mind played tricks on me,
And I cant seem to let you go,
I believe it’s because your still loving me,
I reminisce, I reminisce,
And the memories tell me so”
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 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!
On Valentine’s Day, we think of people
who have cheered and encouraged us,
who go out of their way
to be kind and caring,
who have enriched our lives
just by being themselves.
You are such a person.
I’m so happy you’re my _____
(friend, aunt, co-worker, etc.)
Happy Valentine’s Day!
On Valentine’s Day,
I’m thinking about
the special ways
you have made my life better,
the little things,
the not-so-little things…
the way you always listen
and pay attention to me.
You make my world
brighter and richer.
You’re a gift to me,
and I thank you
for being you.
