Enjoy eight pages of original Valentine's Day poems at Poemsource.com (http://www.poemsource.com), including general purpose Valentine poems, friend, funny, kid, love, and Christian Valentine poetry, verse, sayings, messages and wishes.
Poemsource.com poetry writer Joanna Fuchs says she's been writing greeting card poems since she was a little kid. "When I was about eight years old, I made greeting cards for my family and wrote my own rhymes for them," she says, and I'm still doing it. The site is about seven years old, and I just keep writing more and more poems for it. There are more than 600 poems at Poemsource.com."
"It's hard to find rhyming poems anymore," she adds. "Everything is free verse. People have a strong feeling of nostalgia for the traditional rhyming poems. They strike a chord. Valentine greetings are very popular. Last year millions of people searched for 'Valentine poems' or 'Valentine's Day poems' or 'Valentine poetry,' and that doesn't count more specific searches, like 'Valentine love poem,' 'mother Valentine poem,' etc.”
"The poems at poemsource.com are not the esoteric, contemporary verse that is widespread today," she continues, "but rather old-fashioned, sentimental, touch-the-heart, greeting card poems for anyone and everyone to use on their personal cards."
Although most of the Valentine poetry at poemsource.com is in rhyme, there are some poems in accessible, easy-to-understand free verse, for those who prefer them.
In addition to Valentine poems, the site includes anniversary, baby, birthday, Christmas, father, friendship, funny, get well, graduation, love, mother, New Year's, patriotic, sympathy, teacher, Thanksgiving, thank you, wedding and a variety of other greeting card poems.
Here are some samples of the new Valentine poems:
From the general purpose "Valentine Poems" page:
On Valentine's Day we think of those
Who make our lives worthwhile,
Those gracious, friendly people who
We think of with a smile.
I am fortunate to know you,
That's why I want to say,
To a rare and special person:
Happy Valentine's Day!
By Joanna Fuchs
From the "Valentine Love Poems" page:
No One Like You
My darling Valentine, it's clear,
I love you more and more each year.
Our love is contentment, happiness too.
Because there's just no one like you.
Whenever I feel down and blue,
You make me laugh, and I feel new.
Your loving looks turn my heart to goo;
There's no one, Love, no one like you.
I'm blessed to have your true devotion;
I'm filled with warm and sweet emotion.
You show your love in all you do;
You're one of a kind--no one like you.
And so, my dearest Valentine,
I'm oh, so glad that you are mine.
Our love is faithful, strong and true.
Sweetheart, there's just no one like you.
By Joanna Fuchs
From the "Friend Valentine Poems" page:
Best Friend Valentine
On Valentine's Day, the day of affection,
I'm sending fond thoughts in your direction.
You're really special, my perfect friend;
Together, we are a perfect blend.
You give my life a special shine;
Will you be my best friend Valentine?
By Joanna Fuchs
Of course, there’s “Since My Valentine Got a Computer,” Joanna’s famous poem that has spread worldwide. It’s too long to print here; see it on the Funny Valentine Poems page.
