Tick-tock the wife collects clocks
They cover the walls
There is even one in the hall,
And in the living room
Some are small and some are tall,
She even bought one off an old bloke
Who lives down the road,
But one or two of them are broke
Now she’s bought a Cuckoo clock
But that’s the only one
That does not go tick tock,
Some clocks chime like a little rhyme
But not one will tell me the right time
DID YOU FORGET TO PUT YOUR CLOCK BACK
I have a broken heart
That I have tried so hard to mend
I placed all of my trust in you
I thought you were my friend,
You took your love away
And gave it someone else
I’m now left with a broken heart
That I’ve placed upon the shelf,
Each day I try to repair it
The pieces are scattered everywhere
It will be so hard to mend,
But I’m not going anywhere
So each day I will continue
To fix my broken heart,
Though you will always try
To tear me apart
I hope your new love
keeps her heart intact,
The truth is…
I never want you back
I remember all my Valentines
They are deep within my heart
Every one was so special
Until the day we had to part
You see my loved one past away
After many years together
All the memories of Valentines Day
To me I will always treasure
Red roses were always given to me
And a candlelit meal for two
Every time Valentines comes around
My everlasting love I send to you
And on this special day
I place by your picture frame
A bunch of red roses in memory
To ease my heartache and pain
Tulips. According to Patch, pink tulips are a good flower choice for relationships when that aren’t quite at the passionate love stage yet. But Life123.com reports that a red tulip is a “declaration of love” and white ones signify “beautiful eyes.” Given these meanings, giving tulips for a loved one is never a bad idea, either.
1) With the earth and the sky and the water, remade, like a casket of gold For my dreams of your image that blossoms a rose in the deeps of my heart.
-The Rose in the Deeps of His Heart
William Butler Yeats
2) Come live with me and be my love, And we will all the pleasures prove, That valleys, groves, hills and fields, Woods or steepy mountains yields.
-The Passionate Shepherd to His Love
3) Her gesture, motion, and her smiles, Her wit, her voice my heart beguiles, Beguiles my heart, I know not why, And yet, I'll love her till I die.
-There is a lady sweet and kind
4) i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it (anywhere
i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling
– i carry your heart with me
5) I love thee with the passion put to use In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith. I love thee with a love I seemed to lose With my lost saints,--I love thee with the breath, Smiles, tears, of all my life!--and, if God choose, I shall but love thee better after death.
– How Do I Love Thee?
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
6) I wish I could remember the first day, First hour, first moment of your meeting me; If bright or dim the season it might be; Summer or winter for aught I can say. So, unrecorded did it slip away, So blind was i to see and to forsee, So dull to mark the budding of my tree That would not blossom, yet, for many a May. - The First Day Christina Rossetti SEND YOUR LOVE POEMS TO FEATURE ON THIS SITE FOR OUR VALENTINES DAY SPECIAL E-MAIL firstname.lastname@example.org SUBJECT- LOVE VALENTINE POEMS
My heart aches at your face
My heart strings- fragile, moulds bale.
lively blossom-mottled cheek,
Drips, my sorrow – your Bridal
Veil in bleak.
Upon the mirror of my love
Twinkles, your glorious beauty preen.
Entombed into me, your soul,
Now, bade me disfigured –
My arms- tender, longs for
Seeks your vision to embrace you.
Hold me; I will
cede you my heart’s pulse,
I will resuscitate your sleeping
title-2-Drips, charismatic beads….
dawn’s opalescent sky,
Transient strokes, infinite grace.
Drips, charismatic beads from on high,
Onto the caravan of veins, slumbering solace.
Rejoices, Splashes of green
Beads: crystal, reflecting light Prismatic: amber.
Flakes of dulcet tone, camouflaged slender,
Spout-symphony woven out of air.
spreads on Sepal’s palm,
Dew: beads, slithers, Voyage-sinuous.
Gleams -At the apex of ladybug’s charm,
spherical, ecstasy, pearly-gloss.
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY GILLIAN LOVE FROM HUSBAND THOMAS XXXX Eight YEARS
My love for you is deeper than the deepest ocean known
My love for you is higher than the astronauts have flown
My love for you is wider than the widest sea
My love for you is sweeter than the honey from the bees
My love for you grows stronger every passing day
And in these simple words I am trying to say
That my love for you will past till time is through
For there is a love in my heart for no-one but you
And so I am sending you this Valentine
In the hope that one day you will be mine

Will be celebrating the life of Robert Burns
The celebrated poet of Scotland
Reading his poems in turns
Robert Burns born into a farming family
In Alloway, Ayrshire in 1759
He died at the age of 37years
On this earth for a very short time
Yet in that very short time
He took the Scottish literary by storm
Secured a place in history as a legend
From the day he was born
So as Burns night approaches
Let all celebrate his plight
By reading his wonderful work
Remembering his poetry on Burns Night
It is that time of year again. We start off the new year singing “Auld Lang Syne.” One of my all time favorite movies, “When Harry Met Sally” has clever dialogue about the song. Harry: What does this song mean? My whole life, I don’t know what this song means. I mean, ‘Should old acquaintance be forgot’? Does that mean that we should forget old acquaintances, or does it mean if we happened to forget them, we should remember them, which is not possible because we already forgot? Sally: Well, maybe it just means that we should remember that we forgot them or something. Anyway, it’s about old friends.
Making New Year’s Resolutions are also quite popular at the stroke of midnight. Some will last until the next New Year’s Eve while others don’t make it a day into the new year. Some interesting statistics… A 2007 study by Richard Wisemen from the University of Bristol involving 3,000 people showed that 88% of those who set New Year resolutions fail, despite the fact that 52% of the study’s participants were confident of success at the beginning. Men achieved their goal 22% more often when they engaged in goal setting, (a system where small measurable goals are being set; such as, a pound a week, instead of saying “lose weight”), while women succeeded 10% more when they made their goals public and got support from their friends.
Here are the 10 most popular New Year’s Resolutions:
Like Nottingham Lace
Church bells ringing
A Christmas song
All of a flurry
To and fro
They have to go
The deep deep snow
Christmas is here
In the ice cold snow
