Be My Valentine

The following are poems and quotes about love....just in time for Valentine's Day.

I ne'er was struck before that hour,

With love so sudden and so sweet,

Her face bloomed like a sweet flower,

And stole my heart complete.

~John Clare

We outgrow love like other things,

And put it in the drawer.

Till it an antique fashion shows

Like costumes grandsires wore.

~Emily Dickinson

"The rose that you gave me has faded, and wilted away.

But, the love tucked in deep inside remains in my heart forever."

~Author Unknown

Oh, my love is like a red, red rose

That's newly sprung in June,

Oh, my love is like the melody

That's sweetly played in tune.

~Robert Burns

The priceless gift of life is love,

For with the help of God above

Love can change the human race

And make this world a better place-

For love dissolves all hate and fear

And makes our vision bright and clear

So we can see and rise above

Our pettiness on wings of love.

~Helen Steiner Rice

In water one sees one's own face;
But in wine one beholds the heart of another.
French Proverb

If the eye is a window to the soul,

Then the heart is the doorway to love.

To love someone is to learn the song that is in that persons heart,

and to sing it to them when they have forgotten.

"God gave us our memories so that we might have roses in December." ~J M Barrie
