Valentine’s Day Poems

Love PoemsThere’s something about Valentine’s Day that brings out the poet in all of us.

Sadly, not all of us can write poetry. But no worries, in this case, sometimes leaning on the beauty of words and sentiments written by others is perfectly acceptable.

Just remember to give credit where credit is due. Don’t try to pass off a William Shakespeare Sonnet as your own….just saying.

Valentine Day Poems:

“As long as you love me,
I’ll stay by your side,
I’ll be your companion,
Your friend and your guide,
As long as you love me,
As long as you care,
I’ll do anything for you,
I’ll go anywhere,
I’ll bring you the sunshine,
I’ll comfort your fears,
I’ll gather up rainbows,
To chase all your tears,
As long as forever,
My love will be true,
For as long as you love me,
I’ll only love you”
Traditional Chinese Love Poem

i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)
i fear
no fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want
no world (for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)
E.E. Cummings
(note: E.E. Cummings was known for not using capitalization in a lot of his work)

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm’d;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance, or nature’s changing course, untrimm’d;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest;
Nor shall Death brag thou wander’st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou growest;
So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.
William Shakespeare Sonnet 18
