We Stayed Together
Susan Kasper · Kīhei

Roses are red, violets are blue, here are some Valentine’s Day poems for you.

For thirty years we have stood together.
Sometimes it was absolutely blissful,
And other times, it was like inclement weather.
But there we stayed… together.

The first years we struggled with this and that.
Then came the children,
So we often changed hats.
But there we stayed… together.

Life handed us laughter, as well as some pain.
There were weddings and funerals, as life went on.
We kidded each other about the “ole ball and chain.”
But there we stayed… together.

You have always been there for me, and I for you.
It has been a most exciting journey.
We have lived the vows, and remained true.
And there we have stayed… together.

If life gives us many more years till the end
We will laugh and cry as a couple.
We’ll remain the best of friends.
And that we will stay… forever.

To my Sweetheart now and forever,
Your Wife

My Forever Valentine
Kimberly Noble · Kīhei

Valentine I don’t need
a certain day to love you.
Everyday I love you more.

Valentine I don’t need
to show how much I care.
You are all that matter to me.

Valentine I don’t need
to give you gifts in Red.
In my eyes, your the color of the rainbow.

Valentine I don’t need,
to send you flowers.
Your beauty is unmeasured.

Valentine,
I DO NEED,
My Forever Valentine.

It’s Valentine’s Day!
Bill Boston · Kīhei

There’s Xmas and New Years
And Mother’s Day, too!
There’s Easter, your Anniversary,
St. Patricks Day, Hanukkah,
Grandparents Day, Father’s Day,
Oh, and your Birthday, “whew.”

Well, this Special Day also comes
once a year.
With a heart for a logo
Love with a spear.
Flowers, candy and a little
Teddy bear, shows that special
someone that you really do care.

So Saddle Up Cowboys
get down to the “Mall”
little ribbons and poems
stacked neatly on the wall
“It’s Valentine’s Day!”
Come On Y’all!

The Love You Know Forever
Maryanne Moe · Wailea

you are the poem of my life
the words inscribed upon my heart
you are the song eternal in my soul
the music of the whispering wind
you are the hues giving color to the rainbow
weaving the tapestry of my dreams
you are the shelter
that blankets me in the coolness of night
you are the brillance of the sun
lighting my way through darkness
you are the courage
that rises me above all fears
you are the strength
beyond any measure of weakness
you are the warmth
that melts the chill of sadness
you are the radiance
of the stars in the heavens
