Happy Valentine's Day

Oh, if it be to choose and call thee mine, love, thou art every day my Valentine!

Thomas Hood

Time is too slow for those who wait
Too swift for those who fear
Too long for those who grieve
Too short for those who rejoice
but for those who love, time is eternity

Henry Van Dyke

Gladly I'll live in a poor mountain hut,
Spin, sew, and till the soil in any weather,
And wash in the cold mountain stream, if but
We dwell together


Without love, the rich and poor live in the same house


Loving is not just looking at each other, it's looking in the same direction

Antoine' de Saint Exupery

Grow old with me! The best is yet to be.

Robert Browning

Love is like dew that falls on both nettles and lilies

Swedish Proverb

True love stories never have endings

Richard Bach


  1. Happy Valentine's Day to you! What lovely poetry. Made my heart warm and grateful that I have someone to love and love me this Valentine. I think my favorite is "Grow old with me! The best is yet to be."

  2. Hi Cherie, that is my favorite, too! Hope your day is lovely! xx

  3. Thank you for this beautiful post. Where do you find all your gorgeous verses? I love the Browning one as well - and the Van Dyke verse, which I hadn't heard before.

    As you know we've had sadness in our house with the passing of my mother-in-law. We gave each other Valentines, and I was able to truly say to my daughter that love never, ever, dies.

  4. P.S. Thank you so much for your kind comment, Karen. It means a lot to me.

  5. Dear Christine, You don't have to thank me, it is the very least I could do. I am so sorry.

    I find my quotes and poetry through books, articles, magazines, etc. I save them in a little notebook. The library is a wonderful source.

    Yes, Browning is a favorite.

    A lovely thing to say to your daughter. So sad for her loss.

    Take care, loving thoughts to you and your family. xx


Thank you for stopping by! Your comments are important to me and are very much appreciated. xx Karen
