I've Often Wished to Have a Friend

I've often wished to have a Friend
With whom my sweetest hours to spend
To whom I safely might impart
Each wish and weakness of my heart
Who might in every sorrow share
And mingle with my grief a tear
For whom alone I wish to be
And who would only wish for me
And to secure my bliss for life
I'd wish that friend to be my Wife.

My Own Sweet ValentineRomantic Valentines Poems

Like the sweetly budding rose,
Freshened by the gentle rain
Like the Evening Star that glows,
Brightest of the starry train

Like a well arranged Bouquet,
Where the fairest flowers combine,
Odours rich and colours gay,
Is my own Sweet Valentine

'I Thee Wed' - Romantic Valentine Poem by Charles Dickens

'Come, let's be a comfortable couple and take care of each other!
How glad we shall be, that we have somebody we are fond of always, to talk to and sit with.
Let's be a comfortable couple.
Now do, my dear!'

Martyrdom by John Keats

I have been astonished that men could die martyrs for their religion -
I have shudder'd at it.
I shudder no more.
I could be martyr'd for my religion
Love is my religion 
And I could die for that.
I could die for you.

I Wish You Were My Valentine

I wish you were my Valentine
Though I may not be yours,
And I may, in my ignorance,
Be speaking to closed doors.
I have no inkling of your heart,
No hint what you might say;
But when I think of you the sun
Will just not go away.

There is in you a loveliness
That makes my darkness shine,
And so I'll wait, if wait I must,
To be your Valentine.Victorian Valentine's day poem

Forget-me-not - Classic Victorian Romantic Valentine Poem

Forget me not
No other heart
Can ever be more true than mine
Though many loving friends surround
Thy sunny path, my Valentine

My So Nearly Valentine!Romantic One-liners

I'm going to tea at the Reasons
Such an elegant up market affair.
I've scrubbed me hands
Face and neck and brushed me 'basin' cut hair!

I skip down the hill to his big posh house
Heading for tasty treats
He lives in the shop next the flicks
The one that sells chocolates and sweets.

Terry wants me to be his Valentine
His red velvet card told me so
This evening he waits on my answer
But will I say yes or no?

Their house is the best there's none finer
Silk curtains held back with a frill
There's always fresh fruit on the sideboard,
Even when nobody's ill!

I sit at their sumptuous table
Look in wonder on bone China plates
Drinking tea from a matching cup
Eating cake made with nuts and dates.
We said a prayer before we began
Though his posh mam called it 'grace'.
And I dabbed my lips as the adults did
On a napkin of flowers and lace.

Their sugar came in tiny cubes!
That was such a surprise to me,
Used the real silver sugar tongs
And dropped some in my tea!
I've made up my mind and wink at him
he's the Valentine I want.
He blows me a kiss
Across the cheese and salmon vol au vent!

He's blonde and wears blue plastic glasses
They call him four eyes at school
He woos the girls with Mars Bars and Kit Kats
'cos this lad is nobody's fool.
Christine Dunn wants him all to herself
But she's far too old at aged ten.
But then that's Christine all over
Always going for much younger men!

But I had a trick up my sleeve
And captured my beau fair and squareI
I did what the other girls couldn't
I taught the lad how to swear!

Now I've seen the way he looks at me
And I know I have made him mine
Though I have not quite yet turned eight
he's that a bit older, he's nine!

Stuffed to the gills I'm so happy
As we stroll arm in arm up the hill
Me pockets filled with toffees
And the tanner he's nicked from the till.
In our entry he stops to give me a kiss
- I blush cos it's my first!
But our noses crashed, his glasses smashed
Our affair was sadly cursed.

Only friends now with no spark of romance
Though I got the odd Mars bar or three
Christine Dunn got all his attention
She steamed his glasses not me.

I saw him a few years ago
He asked how I was I said 'Fine!'
Now as wide as he once was tall
He was so nearly my first Valentine!

Cupid - Valentine Day Poem / Song Cupid Valentine Poem

Cupid, draw back your bow
And let your arrow go
Straight to my lover's heart for me
for me

Cupid, please hear my cry
And let your arrow fly
Straight to my lover's heart for me

Now I don't mean to bother you
But I'm in distress
There's danger of me losing all of my happiness
For I love a girl who doesn't know I exist
And this you can fix

So, Cupid, draw back your bow
And let your arrow go
Straight to my lover's heart for me
Nobody but me

Cupid, please hear my cry
And let your arrow fly
Straight to my lover's heart for me

Now, Cupid, if your arrow makes his love strong for me
I promise I will love him until eternity
I know between the two of us his heart we can steal
Help me if you will

So, Cupid, draw back your bow
And let your arrow go
Straight to my lover's heart for me
Nobody but me

Cupid, please hear my cry
And let your arrow fly
Straight to my lover's heart for me

Now, Cupid, don't you hear me calling you, I need you,
Cupid, help me.

The Magic Of Love - Another Romantic Poem for Valentine's Day

...(videVfl2)

Love is like magic
And it always will be.
For love still remains
Life's sweet mystery.
Love works in ways
That are wondrous and strange
And there's nothing in life
That love cannot change.
Love can transform
The most commonplace
Into beauty and splendour
And sweetness and grace.
Love is unselfish,
Understanding and kind,
For it sees with its heart
And not with its mind.
Love is the answer
That everyone seeks...
Love is the language,
That every heart speaks.
Love can't be bought,
It is priceless and free,
Love, like pure magic,
Is life's sweet mystery.

One More Valentine's Love Poem

You've Touched My Heart You've touched my heart

You've given me a reason
For smiling once again,
You've filled my life with peaceful dreams
and you've become my closest friend.

You've shared your heartfelt secrets
And your trust you've given me,
You showed me how to feel again
To laugh, and love, and see.

If life should end tomorrow
And from this world I should part,
I shall be forever young
For you have touched my heart
