Candy hearts that say Be Mine
Red roses bestowing forever
Fancy dinners for two in love
A special night to remember
But what about the lonely –
The broken hearts and souls?
What about the hopeless
Where life has taken its toll?
On this day where hearts abound
Give love where you find sorrow
Let compassion be your guide
to fashion a better tomorrow

Beautiful message, Lauren. Happy Valentine’s Day. ❤️
Thanks so much, John! Hope you’re having a great day! 💖
This may sound like a Hallmark card but I have a great day everyday. I have too few to squander. 💖
There’s nothing wrong with Hallmark, John. 🙂 And I’m lucky to celebrate Valentine’s Day every day with my hubby. And it’s healthy to feel grateful, too. 😍😘
A beautiful poem, Lauren, that resonates on many levels. I do think about Love and its many forms. As you say well, “…give love…” is the key.❤️
Thanks for your lovely words, Erica. We just need to expand our thinking outside of the couples box. Valentine’s Day is similar to Christmas in that it doesn’t offer cause for celebration for all people. I hope yours has been wonderful, though. 💕
Your post is a great reminder how love shows up in many ways ❤️
Such a wonderful lines
Thanks very much, Athira! 💗
Beautiful thoughts to inspire us, Lauren… ❤ Sharing and wishing you a blessed and beautiful Valentine's Day! xo
Thanks so much, Bette! I hope you’ve had a lovely day, too! 💗💗💗
Lovely thoughts Lauren. Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day.
Thanks, Balroop, and I hope you’ve had a wonderful day, too. 💓
Thanks so much, Nico! I hope you’ve had a lovely day.
We did! Blessings.
Beautiful. Thank you Lauren 💝
Thanks so much, Val! I hope your day has been wonderful! Hugs! 💕
Lovely thoughts Lauren. xx
Thanks, Alison! I hope you’ve had a lovely day! 💝
That was quite thought provoking. We can make love selfish. Naturally we should love our partners and families but should also find a place in our heart for those who have no one to love them.
Thanks, Ian, and you understood exactly what I was trying to convey. We can make love selfish (as you said) or we can show compassion and love for those whose hearts need mending.

Thanks, John! Your sharing is always appreciated!
You are welcome.
That’s a very nice sentiment.
Thanks very much, Binky! I hope you had lots of chocolate on Valentine’s Day!
Happy Valentine’s Day, Lauren (a little belated but your poem is good advice year-round!)
Thanks, Barbara, and belated is just fine! 💗☺
Ah, Lauren, such beautiful wise words.
Happy Valentine’s, my dearest friend.
Thanks so much, Marina! Sending big hugs! 💓💓💓
…and more back to you!!!!! ❤️💖❤️
What a beautiful poem! A great reminder to reach out to those in pain… and not just on Valentine’s Day.
Thanks so much, Janis! Valentine’s Day isn’t happy for all, so it’s good to step out of the box and show some love and compassion to those who are hurting. 💗
Such a thoughtful post, Lauren. Like Christmas, Valentine’s Day can serve as a painful reminder to those who are lonely, or have lost a loved one. Well done. 🙂
Thanks, Mark, and Christmas came to mind for me, too, when I wrote this.
I appreciate your kind words. 🙏☺
Lovely message on Valentines Day! Stay blessed and loved much♥️♥️🌹💐😊🎁
Thanks so much, Diana, and I wish you the same! Have a great week! 💓🌷💓🌷
Beautiful poem and sentiment Lauren. ❤
Thanks for stopping by, Debby! Stay warm! 💓
You said it! Stay safe too! ❤
Lauren, your wonderful and kind-hearted spirit shines through in this post. Your poem is a powerful reminder not to forget those that are lonely, have no one to celebrate the day with and that they are kept in our hearts. Virtual hugs go a long way at the moment. I feel Valentine’s Day will have been particularly hard for so many this year. May we all take heed of your last two lines:
‘Let compassion be your guide
to fashion a better tomorrow.”
hugs xx ❤️
Thank you for your lovely comment, Annika. I agree with you that this Valentine’s Day was probably difficult for many. Sometimes, it’s hard to celebrate, knowing there are so many who are suffering in different ways. I feel the same about Christmas – a holiday that is not necessarily joyful for all. Anyway, thanks again, and for mentioning those two lines as well. Sending virtual hugs! 💗
