Love Note ‘From Your Valentine'

Updated on July 8, 2021

I am writing this note to express the ‘love and feelings’ that I always have for you in my heart. In love, silence speaks more than words, but at times you need to put across your feelings in words. I still remember the day you met me first. Impressed by your blushy eyes, my heart decided that you are my destiny. You are my love, my world forever. After meeting you, I felt that being in love is the most wonderful and amazing feeling on this earth.

I am quoting few lines from John Edward’s poemBeauty’ to express my heart.

‘I have heard the song of the blossoms and the old chant of the sea,
And seen strange lands from under the arched white sails of ships;
But the loveliest things of beauty God ever has shown to me
Are her voice, and her hair, and eyes, and the dear red curve of her lips.

Your voice, hairs, and eyes are a lifeline for me. I still remember the poem I wrote for you in Hindi. Teri Aankhon Ke Siwa zindgi our Kahan hogi...(I wonder if life exists except in your eyes). A few days back, you questioned, “Will you be mine forever”… My answer is always a resounding 'yes' because how can I think to live without someone as wonderful as you are. In fact, you are 'A Dream close to my Heart.'

As I am writing this note on Valentine’s Day, I would like to share the tale of St Valentine. This day is celebrated on 14 February every year as a very ‘special day’ for lovers, family, and friends. The most romantic and caring day is dedicated to the memory of St Valentine. Lovers exchange chocolates and flowers on this day, all in the name of St. Valentine.

Who was this mysterious saint, and where did this tradition come from? My Sweetheart, I am sharing few notes from centuries-old legends. There are few different tales, all depicting Valentine as an ‘angel of love. Historical archives talk about different individuals known by the name of Saint Valentine.

The most popular legend describes Valentine as a kind-hearted priest living in Emperor Claudius II of Rome during the third century as Emperor was a hard-hearted king always busy in battles. To continue with battles, he needed regular recruitment of soldiers. Soldiers were not interested in joining the army as they were more attached to their beloveds, wives, and families. Emperor was impressed that soldiers would be more committed if they are not married. He passed a callous order of banning marriages in Rome. He also said that any priest who married a young couple would be put to death. Valentine revolted against the unjustified order and secretly arranged marriages of young people with the help of Saint Marius. For this act, he was arrested and was brutally beaten up, and put to prison. Later, Valentine was put to death on February 14, about 270 AD.

According to another legend related to the same time, Valentine was jailed for refusing to worship the Roman gods, as he was an early Christian in Rome. Christianity was prohibited at that time in Rome. St Valentine continued to practice Christianity and refused to worship Roman gods. When Emperor Claudius came to know of this defiance, he put Valentine into jail. During his stay in prison, Valentine fell in love with the jailer’s blind daughter, who used to bring his flowers and notes of love. It is said that days before his execution, Valentine left a loving note for the young lady and signed it as “From Your Valentine”. Saint Valentine was beheaded on February 14, about 270 AD.

My dear, no doubt, the history of Valentines' Day is unclear, but Valentine certainly has become a symbol of love. Over hundreds of years, Valentine's Day has evolved from a Christian celebration of martyrdom into romantic love. Both of these tales are appealing, but I am still more convinced that Valentine helped young people marry their sweethearts. I am equally impressed when he fell in love with the jailer’s daughter and exchanged love notes with her. I hope you will tell me what you liked in Valentine’s tales?

On this day, I want to thank you for loving me, also thanks for being my strength, thanks for making me smile. You make me smile when I don’t feel like smiling; you make me happy when I am sad and bring joy and peace into my everyday worries. For that, I am so blessed to have you. Here it would not be out of context if I ask you to forgive me if I have ever done or said anything to hurt you because I want us to walk this journey together in love and a renewed commitment to each other.

Let’s celebrate this wonderful day as well, that crazy little thing called ‘Love’.

Lots of love for you, now & forever,
'From your Valentine’
