Short Happy Valentine’s Day Poems
Poetry, verses, and songs have been popular ways to express feelings of love for centuries. It’s no surprise that phrases in poetry can inspire heartfelt words of your own.

You make me feel like I am home again
Whenever I’m alone with you

I crave your mouth, your voice, your hair.
Silent and starving, I prowl through the streets.
Bread does not nourish me, dawn disrupts me, all day
I hunt for the liquid measure of your steps.
~ Sonnet 11 by Pablo Neruda
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
~ 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
And when you smile
the whole world stops and stares for a while
cause you’re amazing
just the way you are.
~ Bruno Mars (Just The Way You Are)
If ever two were one, then surely we.
If ever man were loved by wife, then thee.
If ever wife was happy in a man,
Compare with me, ye women, if you can.
~ To My Dear and Loving Husband by Anne Bradstreet
You’re still the one I run to
the one that I belong to
you’re still the one I want for life.

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 and ideal grace.
~ How Do I Love Thee by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
How do I love you?
Oh, this way and that way.
Oh, happily. Perhaps
I may elaborate by
this, and like this and
no more words now”

Take my hand,
Take my whole life, too
For I can’t help falling in love with you.
~ Elvis Presley (Can’t Help Falling In Love)

Bonded by our hearts and souls
Love forever lasting!”
