Love Poems for Valentine's Day Cards

Poems make great cheap gifts, but you have to pay the price for a good love poem. Frustration at a lack of ability to express thoughts and feelings in poem form can have even the most seasoned Valentine's Day veteran scratching his head.

One of the most inexpensive yet meaningful gifts a person can give is the gift of words. That goes for any time you are writing a note or card message. Writing a thoughtful and heartfelt poem for your boyfriend, girlfriend, wife, or husband on Valentine's Day is a venture that may be more challenging than it seems.

The following poems are for you to use as examples to model your own.

This day is just for me and you.

This day is just for me and you.

Generic Valentine's Day Poem Example

Here is an example of a general poem that could be written in a card for Valentine's Day. Every other line rhymes, and every small section of four lines could stand alone in your card. Mix and match lines and give your creation a name.

Example #1

"Valentine’s Day is for you and me

Our very own holiday to celebrate

There’s no one else I’d rather be

Than your special Valentine date"

Example #2

"Even though this is a special day

And Nothing feels different to me now

I’m glad you’re my Valentine today

You can ALWAYS make me say 'wow!'"

Example #3

"It’s the way that you look at me

It’s the way that you kiss my cheek

It’s the amazing way I feel with you

That keeps every day feeling new"

Your mom is always your first love.

Your mom is always your first love.

Loving Poem for Mom

Here is an example of a poem you can write in your mom's Valentine's Day card. This poem could be a great gift for your mom. Also, write a message about how you appreciate the love she has shown you.

"Your mom is the first to love you

When you are still a little baby

And there’s a lot you still can't do

But I can show her she’s special

By explaining my point of view..."

We might be apart, but you are always on my mind.

We might be apart, but you are always on my mind.

Long-Distance Love Poem

Here's a short poem you could use for a long-distance Valentine's Day. Read this over the phone or write it in your card and mail it.

"Even though we are apart

You are my special Valentine

Your voice warms my heart

I’m so glad that you’re mine"

I want to spend all the time in the world with you.

I want to spend all the time in the world with you.

Valentine Poem for Her

Here's a simple poem you can write to your female significant other. Mentioning things you feel or notice about your girlfriend or wife is an excellent way to add imagery. Sometimes it's a good idea to take a humble approach and mention that you are not skilled enough to capture your girlfriend's beauty in your poem.

Example #1

"Your beauty can't be done justice with my words

I can't describe how your smile colors my world

Or the way you float gracefully like a bird

I want you to know that you are a special girl"

Example #2

"You are more than just a Valentine's Day date

I love to spend time with you as much as I can

You look me in the eyes and I just can't wait

When it comes to kissing you, I'm your biggest fan"

After you have included this poem, add a little more to your wife/girlfriend's Valentine's Day message with some specific details.

A good friend deserves all the love in the world.

A good friend deserves all the love in the world.

Sweet Poem for Friends

Valentine's Day is a great day to let your friends know you appreciate them. Here's a poem to serve as an opening for your kind Valentine's Day message to your friends.

"Friends need love on Valentines Day

Because they are special people too

There are so many things I could say

To say thanks for all the things you do"

Today is an awesome day with a cool kid like you!

Today is an awesome day with a cool kid like you!

Valentine’s Day Poem for Kids

Valentine's Day is a great time for little kids since everyone buys Valentine's and candy for everyone in the class. If you are a kid or parent and are looking for something neutral to write in your Valentines, try this poem.

"There’s one very important rule

That your Valentine’s Day is cool

With cards and candy at school

No one has to feel like a fool"

Last year I made a homemade card with a poem and she loved it. Granted she only liked it because she thought I made it so child like on purpose.

Well, I would call them an inexpensive gift rather than cheap, because the former implies excellent value, while the latter implies miserliness and poor quality. In any case, a nicely done hub. Voting this Up and Interesting.
