'Knowing You Beyond Valentines,' is about telling the one you care about most, exactly why you care about them. Valentines Day is an opportunity to show someone that you love them; for who they are in your life. So then, why not choose to have those perfect words and take the chance to say them, on any day of the year? Follow your heart and trust the beat of the heart that you love most, to guide you. To do that, one must understand and know what that beat is really saying to you.
Having that ability to do so, is the very thing that can set you apart from all those who, for whatever reason, seem to struggle to communicate their true feelings, to others. Perhaps the words in this piece can help you to get that message across! This is the essential poem 69, by New Zealand poet, Pearldiver. Never be afraid to communicate how you feel to others, life is too short to waste that opportunity to love and be loved, to know and to be known, beyond Valentines... and so enjoy, all that each friendship and all love brings.

Essential Poem 69.
Knowing You Beyond Valentines...
A truly great thing about knowing you
Above the rest, has to be
That I do, I really do believe
That over the time I’ve known you
I’ve learned to understand
Learned to listen
Learned to see
Though I have to say
I often wonder, if it’s you
Who has, always known, me!
Each time that we talk
Your heart seems to point out
The perfect way, to be happy
And I’ve learned its vulnerability
Its fragility, its depth and its true style
Why you are so driven, to just be
Why I miss you, if we’re apart, for just awhile
Why you seem to be, so fresh and new
From a glow, that seems to shine right through
Your presence, and there, within your eyes, a smile..
But the greatest thing
About knowing you
Above all else, just has to be
That I do, I really, really do
And how, for the first time, I just knew
How much I’d fallen in love with you
When I learned, exactly what it would mean, in the end
Because your heart secretly, trusted me
Beyond my being, your greatest friend…

Perhaps it's all too hard to show your feelings?
Sometimes it takes a lot courage to say how you feel about someone you care about. Others may find that social media has actually provided greater opportunities to be, or be seen as, a great communicator. Generally though, it usually all comes down to having the personal confidence to act on your feelings. If you feel that your confidence is lacking then don't beat yourself up because of that, give yourself a chance to gain the belief in yourself that is required to develop personal confidence and the power to express yourself positively. Trust your instincts when it comes down to choosing the right words for the occasion; it's amazing what you can convey when you truly speak from the heart. After all, heartfelt words always mean much more... Good Luck.
