Valentine Smile

On Valentine's Day we think of those
Who make our lives worthwhile,
Those gracious, friendly people who
We think of with a smile. I am fortunate to know you,
That's why I want to say,
To a rare and special person:
Happy Valentine's Day!

      I don't know where you come up with the great quotes all the time but the Valentine quotes are excellent.I love all the foreign language words for I love you.

      I wonder if I would've had better luck in my first marriage if I don't let a bird do the choosing? :-)

      Happy Valentine's Day to you.

      Very nice, KoffeKlatch Gals.

      I like this one :

      •It's not everyday that I tell you...I love you...Ok, maybe it is, but on Valentine's Day it's the law.

      It's genuine and funny at the same time.

      Happy Valentine's Day to you. :)

      This is beautiful. Thanks for writing this. I love all quotes about Valentines day. I want to add another language about "I love you" but in Indonesian language. We usually say this "AKU CINTA KAMU". Vote up. God bless you.

      Love and peace, Prasetio
