This special day comes only once a year
To honor those people, we consider so dear.
But we should celebrate our love all the rest of the days
And not just with candy, flowers, but in more special ways.
This does not require lots of money; it just requires you
And some precious and loving time and effort, too.
Surprise your parents or spouse with a delicious, home-cooked dinner you prepare.
Cook all their favorite foods to please them and show how much you really care.
Go visit your grandparents and sit and read to them or just simply talk.
If they are physically able, go with them on a leisurely, evening walk.
If you are a parent, there are many things for your child you can do.
Play games, watch movies, get involved in things he or she wants to pursue.
Be there for your friends or anyone else when they are in need.
Volunteering for charity groups is undeniably a loving deed.
There are so many different wonderful kinds of love.
There is our spiritual love for Almighty God above.
There is the close love we feel for our sisters and brothers
And our undying love for our dear fathers and mothers
And grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins—our entire clan.
With their support and caring this is where our love began.
There is the romantic love shared with our life partner or spouse
And the one-of-a-kind parental love of children who share our house.
There is the family pet that to our lives adds a loving touch
And of course, those extraordinary friends we adore so much.
There is the unique love we experience for our goals, our dreams, our career.
These heart-felt passions are also very real to us and so very dear.
Of all our many God-given emotions, love is the best.
When we have people who love us, we are truly blessed.
Love can make us feel tingly and excited inside.
We feel joyful to have our loved ones by our side.
Every special memory should become a precious treasure-
One we remember forever with such unending pleasure.
Love is the magical link that bonds one person eternally to another.
This incredible thing called love can make us feel special like no other.
Love is defined as a caring way to show affection
Love in its truest sense is simply pure perfection.
Be a real part of the lives of the people you adore. 💕
