Today is an exciting day for couples to celebrate their love for each other. I also show my love not only for my husband, but for my family and friends who hold a special place in my heart. You see, today isn’t joyful for everyone. Some people grieve the passing of their spouse or partner. Some hearts hurt from a breakup. Some people have chosen to be single, so today may not hold a huge significance for them. Some live on the streets. Some live with daunting diagnoses. So, let’s be mindful of the different scenarios that play out on this day. If today is a joyful day for your heart, I implore you to take a moment to think of those who struggle in some manner…
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
And now for a mixture of love poems from the past…
Forever Love (an Acrostic)
Faint is how you make me feel and not
Only when our lips connect, but when I
Remember our first embrace and how my
Emotions twirled inside of me; dizzy and
Voiceless I was and those moments still exist
Even though decades have come and gone
Reflections of those first days are magical
Learning the true meaning of bliss, an
Out of the ordinary feeling, knowing you are my
Valentine, lover and friend for the rest of our life and for
I stumble over
his broken pieces,
their jagged edges
reach for me.
I want to be
their healing glue.
His mind is weary,
the layers of his soul.
I want to be his shoulder.
His heart aches
trying to make sense
of it all…
but I won’t let him fall…
I am his remedy.
The World is Broken
The world is broken,
we are aware,
but being alive on this crisp autumn morning,
what a blessing
and he says,
“The good news
for today is
I love you,
The world may be broken,
but I am not.
I hope today will be joyful for you from my heart to yours.
Happy Valentine’s Day! ❤️❤️
