Staying together takes courage and an unwavering desire to protect something precious. Challenges that can tear love to shreds will test us. Only a mutual unrelenting determination to make our love survive and thrive will prevail.

It’s the ups and downs that continue to prove our love. Whatever challenges come, we work through them quickly because we want to; because we need to; and because our love is cherished and held highly valuable by both of us.
Indian poet and greeting card verse writer Ritu Ghatourey
Love isn’t always perfect.
It isn’t a fairytale or a storybook
and it doesn’t always come easy.
Love is overcoming obstacles,
facing challenges, fighting
to be together, holding on
and never letting go.
It is a short word,
easy to spell, difficult to define, a
nd impossible to live without.
Love is work, but most of all,
love is realizing that every hour,
every minute, every second
of it was worth it because
you did it together.
I finally “felt” what I think Valentine’s Day should be about: love, love and more love between two totally committed partners. Thank you for opening up the doors to a whole new life for me.
Sometimes I worry about losing you. But you have a special way of setting my mind at ease when you say you love me at just the right moment. Hearing “I’m all yours baby” falls sweetly on my ears.
From “Love Poem #17″ by Amanda Nicole Martinez
when I’m happy,
when I’m sad,
when I’m good,
I’m oh so bad,
when I’m pretty,
my face is plain,
when I’m feeling good,
I’m feeling pain.
I’ve told you my dreams and my worst mistakes. My hopes are safe with you and you accept me in spite of my old wrongs from long ago. I have never dared to let someone see so deeply into my heart.
How I feel about you is neither fragile or tentative. My love comes with a certainty that no matter what happens I will always carry you safely in my heart through time eternal.
From the song “Till the End of Time” by Chopin, Kaye and Mossman
Till the end of time,
long as stars
are in the blue
there’s a spring
of birds to sing
I’ll go on
Till the end of time,
long as roses
bloom in May
My love for you
will grow deeper
If you live to be a hundred, I want to be a hundred minus one day. Then I won’t have to live a day without you. The longer we are together the more you are the reason for every breath I take.
… taught me to love myself. I always thought I needed to be more of this or less of that, but your love is accepting of me just as I am. You’ve helped me become a better man; more confident, self-assured and capable of loving.
American author, motivational speaker and a professor Leo F. Buscaglia
is one in which
the loved one
to be himself,
to laugh with me,
but never at me;
to cry with me,
because of me;
to love life,
to love himself,
to love being loved
… has remade me. I am different from before I fell for you. See my smile? It was never this large before. See my eyes? The sparkle wasn’t there previously. I stand straighter and walk with more confidence. I am not a different person, but a far better version.
…does not require me to be in love to feel loved. I can relive good memories of old flames, fall head over heels with a character in a book or find joy in the happiness of others. Only with an already open loving heart can I ever fall in love again.
“Your Kiss” by contemporary poet Shelagh Bullman
Your kiss is like a roller coaster ride up to the stars,
Or dancing on a moonbeam, a rocket trip to Mars;
Your kiss is like a thunderbolt striking to my heart,
Makes my body quiver and my senses fall apart;
Your kiss is like riding on the back of Angels wings,
Flying me over golden meadows, mountains & silver streams:
Your kiss is like a Love song without a single word,
And only in this heart of mine this love song can be heard;
Your kiss to me is Heaven, a Paradise of Love and Laughter,
Let’s kiss amongst the starlit skies for now and ever after.
