On this Valentine’s Day,
Won’t you be mine?

Your valentine
Oh, yes, I’ll be your valentine,
And love you every day!

Valentine, you make me silly;
You make my heart beat willy-nilly;
When I’m with you, the world is hazy;

My need for you goes off the chart.
Will you be mine? Can I be thine?
Say you’ll be my Valentine!

My special Valentine friend.

And I guess the sky children were sending down,
This Valentine straight to the children in town.

And the rose had a different name.
If tigers were bears
And fingers were thumbs
I’d love you just the same.

Ordinary candy,
Boxed in a ruby
Heart, it grows
Exotic, mysterious;
Not to mention
The red cellophane
Wrapper, which
Looked through,
Shows a marvelous
Scarlet world.

Now St. Valentine is here.

To people near and far,
This one I’m sending right to you
To say how nice you are.

“Oh will you be my wallaby?”

And deep inside,
My dear, you’d ride—
Oh, come and be my bouncing bride,
My Valentine, my side-by-side
I am in love with you.”

41.) Everything Reminds Me Of You

I look at a tree,
And what do I see?
My Valentine’s face
Smiling back at me.

I spot a cute rock,
But, oh what a shock,
For it reminds of you
And that is no crock.

Everywhere that I turn,
My feelings just burn
With thoughts about you,
My love please don’t spurn!

Each rock and each tree,
Each cloud and each bee,
The earth and the sea,
It all reminds me…

I love you awesomely!

-Karl Fuchs

To-morrow is Saint Valentine’s Day
All in the morning betime,
And I a maid at your windo
To be your Valentine.

43.) Veggie Valentine

You may not “carrot” all for me
The way I care for you.
You may “turnip” your nose
When I plead with you
But if your “heart” should “beet” with mine
Forever “lettuce” hope
There is no reason in the world
Why we two “Cantaloupe.”


44.) Silly Valentine

It’s Valentine’s day,
And it’s really quite silly;
My feelings are switching around

I’m happy, SO happy!
Then I’m feeling SO sad;
I’m gloomy, I’m joyful
Oh man, this is bad!

My body is clammy,
Then I’m in a deep sweat;
Sometimes I’m giddy,
Sometimes I fret.

I’m looking for comfort food
Deep in the fridge;
Often I think
I could jump off a bridge.

What is the reason
For all the above?
It’s Valentine’s Day,
And I’m SO in love!

-Joanna Fuchs

45.) 10 Little Valentines

One little, two little,
three little Valentines.
Four little, five little,

Nine little Valentines.
Ten little Valentines in my box!

Roses are red;
Violets are blue.
You’re sticky like taffy,
And I’m stuck on you.
Tomatoes are red,
Broccoli is green.
You’re the best Valentine
I’ve ever seen.
Lilacs are purple,
Bananas are yellow.
You’re soft and cuddly,
Like a sweet marshmallow.
Any color or flavor is fine,
If you’ll just be my Valentine.

-Joanna Fuchs

47.) A Valentine to a Little Child

Dear heart, on this thrice-blessed day,
Thou my sweetheart be,
The rose of love shall bide always
Upon the red-rose tree.
And in the garden of my heart
So ceaselessly shall shine,
The little birds will know thou art
Mine own true Valentine.

-Evaleen Stein

48.) The Magic Valentine Potion

I was strong and now I’m weak,
So a secret potion now I seek,
To help me balance out my life,
To help me shed this inner strife.

What torment makes me whimper deep,
That keeps me nights without much sleep,
That took the strength from muscles strong,
That makes me hear the birdie’s song.

This potion must be magic sweet,
To make me whole, again complete.
So be my potion, Valentine,
Just answer me that you’ll be mine.

-Karl Fuchs

Oh, Will, you be my valentine,
My valentine, my valentine?

Oh, yes, I’ll be your valentine,
And love you every day!

And pretty flowers you’ll see.
