A great Valentine poems for friends written by Nicholas Gordon, which I found on the net is given here:

Some people think that friends should be just friends;
To try for more might ruin what they have.
I think the closest friend is one you love,
Sharing life with words and lips and hands.
One caress unravels mysteries
Lodged behind the most elaborate mask.
The revelation’s more than worth the risk.
I want with you such sweet simplicities.
I want us to be friends who now are free
To speak with all the languages of touch.
I want to share your anguish with a kiss
And feel your happiness against my cheek.

Love poems for Valentine’s Day are composed for Valentine’s Day – 14th February. See this:

Just wanted you to know: I love you.
Months have passed since we became close friends.
Every day I find I’m thinking of you,
Though no word from you that message sends.
And yet we share all other thoughts and feelings:
I cannot wait to tell you of my day,
And you give me the gist of all your dealings,
Which makes me hope we walk in the same way.
Telling you this is opening a door
That never can be closed again, and yet
I must, because I ache for something more,
Something that I must risk all to get.
Some night, perhaps, we’ll go hang out somewhere;
I will reach for you, and you’ll be there.

It gives an opportunity for hidden talents to bloom as Valentine Day’s poems. The poems may be of any type – funny valentine poems or even cute valentine poems.

I have a monster crush on you,
A super-dinosaur!
It sits upon my chest and throat
And yet I beg for more.
When you’re away I miss you so
My heart is full of sand.
Yet when you’re here my stupid fear
Won’t let me touch your hand.
I cannot sleep, I cannot eat,
I’m so wrapped up in you.
My thoughts drift up, away from words,
And fade into the blue.
I know this crush is not your fault;
The dinosaur is mine.
Yet if you could, please rescue me,
And put your arms around me, and hold me, and say
you love me, and Oh! God! Would that be good!

The day is special for exchange of love between lovers, friends and relations.

How can I tell you what I feel for you?
When I think of you my feelings twist inside
As if someone’s fist reached in and grabbed a few,
And turned and turned them tight and tangled. I’ve tried
Somehow to say: You’re the sun in my sky,
The wind that takes me where I want to go,
The sweet incense that makes me feel so high
That loving you seems all I need to know.
But it all sticks in my throat! It sounds too cute,
Empty as a wrinkled paper bag.
You won’t believe it! Better I stay mute
Than offer you cliches that make you gag.
And yet I wish to tell you of my love,
If only love its own locks would remove!

Legend has it that a French nobleman – Charles the Duke of Orleans is said to be the first person to have written a Valentine poem. The English captured him in 1415 during the Battle of Agincourt. He loved his wife and on Valentine’s Day sent her a poem couched with love from the grim Tower of London. The manuscript of the poem is still kept carefully in the British Library.

Many years later HenryV arranged for a professional writer, John Lydgate to pen a poem to Catherine of Valois. By the 18th century it became common to exchange rhymes and tokens of love between dear ones amongst all social classes.

During the Valentine season love is in the air. On that day pairing fowls and birds bill and coo, sending out poems of love that are extremely private and not for our understanding. Lovebirds are said to be very choosy about this particular date.

Your eyes won’t let my thoughts go back to sleep.
Your words draw me across 2000 miles.
I don’t know you at all, and yet I know
You better than my friends of many years.
The days I spent with you are like a tape
I play, rewind, play, rewind, and play.
Whenever I remember something new,
I feel as though you touched me on the cheek.
I miss you as the grass awaits the wind,
Or as the morning sky awaits the sun.
Although I look for you in every doorway,
I find only the darkness in my heart.

Another legend says that Valentine was a priest during 3 BC. Emperor Claudius decreed that no young man was to marry as he thought marital status affected the performance of soldiers. Valentine defied the ban and continued to secretly perform the marriage of young lovers and for this he was beheaded.

Another version recounts that while in jail Valentine developed a relationship of love and affection with the jailor’s daughter and just before the beheading he sent her a letter ending with the words ‘your Valentine.’ These words continue to guide the pen even today.

(All the poems have been written by poet Nicholas Gordon)
