Valentine Poems for Her 

Send a charming verse to your wife or girlfriend for Valentine’s Day. Sometimes short Valentine poems with just a rhyming couplet or two are the most meaningful. And don’t forget the power of the haiku! 

Always & Forever
Once upon a time, I fell in love with you.
And then one day we both said “I do.”
You are my joy and my light,
And though I’ll never say it quite right,
I am yours, for always and forever.

I kiss you today
and take in the Spring from your
cherry blossom love.

Valentine Poems for Him

For Valentines poems for him, tell the story of your first date in rhyming phrases or begin each line with a letter of his first name. 

Sweet & Kind
You are sweet, you are kind
I’m so glad to call you mine.
You are handsome, you are tall
You’re the best boyfriend of all.
And today I just want to say,
Happy Valentine’s Day!

Hold my little hand,
beneath the velvet midnight.
I will dream of you.

Lovely Valentine
To my lovely valentine,

that I love you very much.
So please keep in touch!
