Valentine Verses

I may not always tell you
What I'm feeling deep inside
The emotions and the feelings
That I sometimes tend to hide

But I'm really proud and pleased
To know that you are mine
And I hope that you still love me
My Darling Valentine

OK, I got you this Valentines card
And you're probably wondering why
Because today's not special to me
As a 365 Romantic Guy

You're probably thinking I love me
and I do
But not even remotely as much
As I love you

Valentine Verses

More than a catbird hates a cat, 
Or a criminal hates a clue,
Or the Axis hates the United States, 
That's how much I love you. 

I love you more than a duck can swim, 
And more than a grapefruit squirts, 
I love you more than a gin rummy is a bore, 
And more than a toothache hurts. 

As a shipwrecked sailor hates the sea,
Or a juggler hates a shove, 
As a hostess detests unexpected guests, 
That's how much you I love. 

I love you more than a wasp can sting, 
And more than the subway jerks, 
I love you as much as a beggar needs a crutch,
And more than a hangnail irks. 

I swear to you by the stars above,
And below, if such there be, 
As the High Court loathes perjurious oathes, 
That's how you're loved by me. 

Ogden Nash

I wanna be your vacuum cleaner
breathing in your dust
I wanna be your Ford Cortina
I will never rust
If you like your coffee hot
let me be your coffee pot
You call the shots
I wanna be yours

I wanna be your raincoat
for those frequent rainy days
I wanna be your dreamboat
when you want to sail away
Let me be your teddy bear
take me with you anywhere
I don’t care
I wanna be yours

I wanna be your electric meter
I will not run out
I wanna be the electric heater
you’ll get cold without
I wanna be your setting lotion
hold your hair with deep devotion
Deep as the deep Atlantic ocean
that’s how deep is my emotion
Deep deep deep deep de deep deep
I don't wanna be hers
I wanna be yours

 John Cooper Clarke
British Punk Poet

Valentine Verses

How do I measure
The love I have for you?
I thought, while idly watching
A sparrow sippin' dew

And as I pondered thoughtfully
My thoughts wandered far
And then I thought "Forget it
I'm going to the bar !"

Happy Valentine's Day

The night was dark,
The moon was high, 
He stopped the car,
She wondered Why,
He moved in close, 
Her heart went pitter pat,
He whispered sofly,
The tyre's flat

Valentine poems

Roses are red, violets are blue
I made this card just for you
It's not the neatest, it wouldn't pass a test
But it's made with love--that makes it the best

Just to know each day

I send you a cream-white rosebud 
With a flush upon its petal tips;

Has a kiss of desire on the lips.

As fair art thou, my bonnie lass, 
So deep in love am I, 
And I will love thee still, my dear, 
Till all the seas gone dry
Robert Burns (1759-1796)

© V4C 

I can't begin to tell you
How much you mean to me
My world would end if ever we were through
I can't begin to tell you
How happy I would be
If I could speak my mind like others do
I make such pretty speeches whenever we're apart
But when you're near
The words I choose refuse to leave my heart
So take the sweetest phrases the world has ever known
And make believe I've said them all to you
I Can't Begin To Tell You - Bing Crosby (Lyric)

Valentine poems

I knew I found my life's callin'
When you spoke my name
From that moment on, the reason I was born
Became so very plain
Now my heart and soul's, one and only goal
Is to bring you happiness
Lovin' you, is what I do the best
What I Do The Best - John Michael Montgomery(Lyric)

Forever my darling our love will be true

"To love is to .."
is said in many poems

To love is to give and to keep on giving
To please and to pamper, loving and living
To love is to forgive failing large or small
and then to forget them once and for all
To love is to say "I truly love you"
and by this message.....
that's what I hereby do


© V4C

The following three are further examples

To love is to share 

The good and the bad

The joy and the sorrow

Anxious, trying times

That make you mad

To love is to give

Again and again

To please and pamper

With divine devotion

And exchanging emotions

To love is to forgive

The large and the small

Be willing to forget

Without fretting

And never recall

To love is to cherish

Someone precious and dear

You love them always

And forever

Until their final day is here


Betty Chambers

On the Inspirational Side of Poetry

To love is to share life together

To love is to share experiences, knowledge and ideas



In book Philosophy of True Love



To love is to care 

To love is to share

To love is to pet 

To love is to please

To love is to protect and shield

To love is to comfort

To love is to cherish

To love is to respect 

To love is to desire

To love is to appreciate and treasure 

To love is to keep ...

More Valentine Verses



I'd give up Jim Beam and Jack Daniels
And swear a No Smoking oath
I'd take exercise and use weights
To encourage (penal)(bosom) growth
I'd improve my grooming habits
And discover wonderful places to dine
I'd go to IKEA to improve my wardrobe
If you'd be my Valentine
A refusal will cause my enlistment
In the French Foreign Legion
I'd shun all connubial pleasures
By padlocking my nether region
I'd shun all mind enhancing drugs
Oh yes, even beer and wine
Don't feel any pressure, my darling
But please be my Valentine

 Being public spirited
Is so rewarding, I've found
I feel the urge to donate my organ
Whenever you're around
(Let me lend you an ear or a helpful hand)
Be my Valentine

OK, I got you this Valentines card
And you're probably (thinking it's a joke) (wondering why)
Because today's not special to me
As a 365 Romantic (Bloke) (Guy)
You're probably thinking I love me
and I do
But not even remotely as much
As I love you

This card brings Valentine wishes most sincere
And you may think words are cheap, I fear
But I've included an invisible slice of niceness
And a (wife's*) love and loyalty and now it's priceless
*(wife's/mother's/ friend's/daughter's)

Since we met I’ve become besotted
My love for you is true.
If you give me half a chance
I’ll give my all to you.
*I love all that you are 
And all that you do.
You’ve been in my heart
From the moment I saw you.
*From the moment that I saw you
A slice of me you stole
Please don’t depart my heart.
For you now control my soul
*Please be my Valentine
No one else on Earth will do.
Out of 10 million potential choices
The only one I want is you,

I missed you so much
I really was hurting
I wasn't shedding tears
But my eyes kept squirting 
I missed you so much
But not completely
Just from the top of my head
Down to my feetly 
I missed you so much
My heart was breaking
I did that much missing
My misser was aching 
I missed you so much
But not anymore
Welcome Home, Darling
You're the one I adore

I'd gather them inside my heart
I'd wrap them in love
And brighten your day

 The clues that you're getting old
Are there (Bill) it's true 
Your belt won't buckle any more
But your knees most certainly do 
This is the (40th) Valentine card I've sent you 
But you look good all the same 
Who cares if your hair is thin and grey 
And you'll suit a Zimmer frame 
We've been together since we were young 
We're now getting old, and how 
The fire is still within us 
We just call it heartburn now
I love you still
(& on the odd occasion you move)

You used to bound up with glee
Now it's "I can't do stairs and passion ..
You'll have to choose which one it's to be"

You used to be insatiable
You were always there on cue
Now the expression "all nighter" means
Not getting up for the loo

You still mean the World to me
