Poems for Valentine's Day

About Love and Valentines

( some old, some new ~ some happy, some bittersweet )

Come And Be My Valentine

Oh! Come and be My Valentine
and give your love to me.
Those words I’ve waited, long, to say
are wanting to be free!

Let’s put away our doubts and fears
and trust our hearts to know,
the way our lives were meant to be;
and how our love should grow.

Come hear the song that’s in my heart
that’s playing just for you.
No sweeter music could you know,
nor words, so pure and true.

Come with me, and be my love,
with all my life to share-
packed with hugs, and kisses -sweet-
this love, beyond compare!

Oh! Come and be My Valentine
and give your heart to me!
Together, we’ll declare our love,
for all the world to see.

The time I spend with you, my love,
means more to me than I can say.
The little things you say and do,

bring sunshine to my darkest day!

When you’re near me, everything,
is dusted with your golden glow.
I’m trying hard to find the words-
those magic words - to let you know.

Words, I find, don’t say enough…
can’t express what’s here - inside!
So I falter and I fail…
no mind, how often I have tried.

A simple ‘I love you,’ it seems,
should be enough to satisfy.
But for you, there’s so much more-
more than those three words imply!

I’ll just have to tell you this,
you’re all the world to me - and more!
You’re everything my heart does crave.
You’re all that I’ve been longing for.

Come With Me, My Love

Come with me, my love
along the sandy shore.
We’ll watch the perfect sunset,
like none we’ve known before.
We’ll savor every moment,
enclosed in our embrace,
and watch the fading sun rays
until there is no trace!
We’ll walk the sun-warmed beaches,
until the evening’s chill
begins to turn us homeward…
with promises to fill.

If Only I Could

All this I would give you
if only I could.

Warm sunshine to soothe you.
A walk in the wood.

Bird song to enchant you.
Soft breezes to caress.

Blue skies to calm you-
to relieve all your stress!

Good friends to surround you-
just those, tried and true.

...And a love for a lifetime
I'd offer to you...

Sweet music to uplift you,
as only it would.

All this I would give you
if only I could.

June Kellum


I’ll Be The Moth

I’ll be the moth,
if you’re the flame.
I’ll seek the warmth
you offer me.
You’ll be my guiding light,
on shore,
if I’m the ship that’s
lost at sea.
I’ll be the flowers-
you, the rain.
What would have withered
now will grow.
You’ll be the song
that’s in my heart.
I’ll find a way
to let you know.

~A poem I wrote - 2006 ~~~ another re-run~

My Love

These years we’ve been together,
down this road of life…

through calm or stormy weather…
through the pain and strife…

through the happiest of seasons that, so,
out weigh the rest…

sharing what we’ve treasured…
time has been our test!

Both learning, as time passes,
the craft of compromise…

how, overtime, things change a bit,
may take us by surprise.

Sometimes change feels threatening,
seems like the winter’s wind

that howls in it’s persistence,
impatient to come in.

Changes are just ripples,
can’t touch us - you must know-

or break the bond created,
all those years ago.

Poems: My rainy day poems...

The Rain

The rain came down today,

littering blossoms on the ground.

Leaving all in disarray.

Spring’s glory scattered!

…As my love’s been beaten down,

with consistent disregard

- impersonal as the rain-

as if it never mattered.

June Kellum



The Sky Today

The sky, today,

is dark with clouds.

The sun is hidden well.

And though

I have the heat turned up,

the chill

I can’t dispel!

The gloomy day

has taken hold-

seems settled in to stay.

All things of cheer-

all sunny thoughts-

have all

been chased away!

…But is it just the

sunless day

that chills me to the core?

…Or fear that I have lost you -

will not see you anymore?

June Kellum




Raindrops fall, relentlessly!

The color in the day,

has vanished so completely-

been taken, clear, away.

Just one name I’ll give it.

Drab describes it well.

The day is wrapped in sorrow,

a dismal shade of pale.

Raindrops on the window

make ripples in my view;

distorting all I’m seeing-

cast in this faded hue.

The world outside seems burdened,

bent down with all the rain;

the way my heart is heavy

and drowning with the pain.

Not to worry, friends!

I realize into every life a little rain must fall!

Poem: Winter's Coming On

Winter’s Coming On

Winter’s coming on.
The year is winding down.
Autumn’s color, gone-
her leaves piled on the ground.

The chill is in the air-
and soon there will be snow.
But we’ll keep warm and cozy,
as north winds start to blow.

We’ll sit next to the fire,
with blankets tucked in neat.
We’ll cuddle - you and I, my love -
as embers warm our feet.

We’ll have our tea or coffee,
our steamy cups to hold
up close before our faces;
to help combat the cold.

Fire logs will be handy,
Piled up in stacks so high.
We won’t meet winter, unprepared,
and never would we try!
