Valentine's Day Quotes for Friends

Sometimes quotes are great to use as messages for cards. Let someone else say what you want to say in a fun or witty way.

Valentine's Day Poems for Friends

Using a poem for your friend can be a nice way to express your fond feelings and gratitude toward your friend. Here are a few examples of poems for friends. Use these for your a friend as each already are, or add another verse to customize.

"Since You're My Friend"

Valentine's Day can be a special day
When someone really cares about you
So Valentine's Day is more than o.k.
Since you're my friend and I'm yours too

-Blake Flannery

"Laughing Along with You"

A friend is someone you can count on
To tell you what you need to hear
A friend can give encouraging words
To help you get over your fears

Friends will stay right by your side
Even when others give up on you
Friends can laugh when you screw up
But you'll be laughing along too

-Blake Flannery
