A Sweet Valentines Card

My daughter ( a pre-schooler) received a valentine from a boy in her class. On the back it had this poem that I have to share:

I wish you were my Valentine
Though I may not be yours,
And I may, in my ignorance,
Be speaking to closed doors.

I have no inkling of your heart,
No hint what you might say;
But when I think of you the sun
Will just not go away.

There is in you a loveliness
That makes my darkness shine,
And so I'll wait, if wait I must,
To be your Valentine.

Isn't that the sweetest thing you have ever read? I don't know if this little boy gave this poem to everyone (it's likely), but I would like to think that he has a crush on my Sarah!


  1. Oh my gosh, that is awesome. Boy they start early these days don't they. Sam already has a few marriage proposals.

  2. I'll bet! Get used to that! Thanks for following my blog. That is very sweet.
