City Paper's Reader Valentines

Robert Bartlett

Posted 2/13/2008

We never realized how many pet names there could be when we cooked up this idea of printing free valentines, much less how many people would send valentines to or from pets. But once we started typing or cutting-and-pasting them all in, we found ourselves humbled and touched by all the different ways people find to say "I love you," or something like it, and how much they obviously mean it. That said, it's disclaimer time: We fit all the valentines we could in the actual paper; if you don't see yours in print, they're probably below. If we got something wrong, we're sorry, but we did our best to make out your handwriting, signature, wacky secret code, etc. If someone submitted something kinda stalker-y, don't look at us. If you don't see yours, well, it probably got lost in the mail or e-mail (before you ask, we checked our spam trap regularly right up through the deadline). Without further ado, free love.

Oh, and by the way, you can click the thumbnails to see a larger image.


Arron,

You have brought so much joy into my life and you give me so much to look forward to when I wake up every morning. I want you to know that I sincerely appreciate you and I can never tell you enough that "I love you!" You complete me, baby.

Love,

It's still kinda funny to think that this started out as just a MySpace thing. We've been inseparable for two years now and I can't imagine spending this time with anyone else. You never stop amazing me. You're my best friend, my rock, and the greatest boyfriend. I love you, baby.

Love,

CJ

JEM,

We celebrate a year's worth of Valentines this year. I look back to the first and marvel at how, even now, you still melt my heart and shiver my spine. The mane still gets tangled in the horns, for better and worse. And we are still strong, are us.

Love,

JMC

Dear Jennifer,

I'd really like to check you out! Happy Valentine's Day.

Aloha,

Tom

It's all about loved ones on Feb. 14, but what about the love you've lost, huh? Like my Mookie, my Na-Nook! Maybe I can have you again when we're in our "Alzheimer" years, that way you've forgotten all that I fucked up and just remember how much you love me. Either way, I'll wait forever, even if it never comes, because you are my last call for alcohol, my one phone call, my last meal, my living will. My EVERY DAMN THING.

Always,

Pooella Deville

BE MY VALENTINE. ALLEN MICHAEL, YOU ARE EVERYTHING I HAVE EVER HOPED AND DREAMED FOR. I NEED NOTHING MORE IN THIS WORLD THAN TO BE WITH YOU, IN MY ARMS FOREVER AND ALWAYS.

I LOVE YOU,

Your wife,

Betty

Hey Biz,

I love you a lot. You mean the world to me. You are my everything. Without you I am a mess. Thanks for being in my life. I love you! Biz -n- Lil Miss Aug "07"-4eva

This is the love of my life ,my motivation, my heart, soul, and mind, my sun and moon, my shade in June, my warmth in January. She is everything that means anything to me, the reason I wake up in the morning besides God. My life wouldn't have any meaning without her, and baby, with all that said, I just want to let you know I love and appreciate you. God bless your mommy and daddy for that @$$!!!

Daunte Ray

To a unique woman full of hello's and sorry's. Your apologies and my awkwardness doen't even come close to describing the two of us. I just want to say, Megan, you mean the world to me, and "I heart you!"

Happy Valentine's Day.

Daunte,

Thank you for picking me out of all the others. I love you for all the moments we have, good or bad. I am so glad to have a wonderful husband like you. I need and love you so much. No one can ever replace you and no one could ever try. I honor you as my husband, as my life partner, as the man I will grow old and die with, as the man that looks at me and makes me melt. I fell in love with you on our first date and I'm still falling. I adore you for the man you are. I hope everyone in Baltimore and the world knows how much we really love each other.

Love, all your women in one,

Lauren Ray

I love you, Brianna. You will always be my boo.

Kenny

To Sherry Tastycakes,

I've had many names for you-

took, pink, Bith, and boo . . .

But, of all the names for which to call,

one does stand out o'er them all.

A word of substance-ancient and true.

The word is "love," my love,

and I love you.

Happy Valentine's Day-

49 years, and counting!

But most of all we love you!

To the one I love with all of my heart. Philip Johns Jr.

I love the way you look at me,

Your eyes so bright and blue.

I love the way you kiss me,

Your lips so soft and smooth.

I love the way you make me so happy,

And the ways you show you care.

I love the way you say, "I Love You,"

And the way you're always there.

I love the way you touch me,

Always sending chills down my spine.

I love that you are with me,

And glad that you are mine.

Mike

I WOULD JUST LIKE TO TELL MY LOVE ANTHONY COOPER (K.A.) COOP THAT I LOVE HIM VERY MUCH. WE HAVE BEEN TOGETHER FOR ABOUT TWO YEARS AND IT HAS BEEN A LONG TWO YEARS. WE HAVE BEEN THROUGH SO MUCH AND YET WE ARE STILL STANDING BESIDE EACH OTHER. BEFORE I MET ANTHONY I HAD NO INTENSIONS OF SETTLING DOWN FOR A LONG TIME DUE TO PAST RELATIONSHIPS. BUT I AM BLESSED AND APPRECIATIVE THAT GOD SENT HIM MY WAY. AND I ALSO WANT TO SAY TO HIM THAT NO ONE RELATIONSHIIP IS EVER GOING TO BE PERFECT. AND PERFECT IS NOT WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR. JUST TO BE HAPPY IS ALL I WANT AND NEED FROM HIM. AND YES I WOULD LOVE TO SPEND THE REST OF MY LIFE WITH YOU. AND NO MATTER HOW RUFF THE ROAD GETS OR HOW HARD THINGS MAY SEEM I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN THERE FROM DAY ONE AND I WILL CONTINUE TO BE THERE FOR YEARS TO COME. I JUST WANT YOU TO KNOW THAT I LOVE YOU VERY MUCH AND NO ONE COULD REPLACE YOU OR TAKE YOUR PLACE.

VERONICA JEFFRIES (a.k.a.) CANDY

Bear,

Our 6th Russell Stover holiday together! Looking forward to a lifetime of more. I love you always.

Bear

How do I love you?

I love you as another whole to myself.

I love you like the sun loves the moon.

I love you because at the end of the day,

I rather live in your world

than be without you in mine . . .

Joseph,

You mean the world to me and I hope we can celebrate more Valentine's Days together.

Jessica

Jillian,

. . . the anchor to my dinghy, the Sister to my Christian, the 23 to my 37. I love you more than words can be put to print. Happy Valentine's Day.

How far we've come in a year. Not sure where we're heading, but I know that for me it has all been so different and wonderful so far.

L.L.

Douggles,

You're awesome. You roxors my soxers! I love you more :)

Dactyl

You're always needed.

Your tenderness is needed too.

It seems I'm never tired of loving you.

Never was a feeling stronger,

Aching for the sweet things you do.

And it seems I'm never tired of loving you.

Lay your smooches on me, my sweet Pancake Slut!

Roses are Red,

Violets are Blue,

Best Valentine ever?

Casey, it's you!

Happy Valentine's Day, Casey!

Love always,

David

It all started with the sun reflecting off you as you passed thru the trellis. My heart skipped a beat! I knew then you may be "the one." And as we have grown, this only became more apparent. From the flavorsome orgasms we create in the kitchen to the ones where we wake the neighbors! We have shared moments we love and those we regret, but they have only showed us one thing: "Keep on truckin'." The saying goes "two heads are better than one," so I am glad you can pick up the slack. "So don't think twice, it's alright." I LOVE YOU on this artificial, corporate-inflated, price-gouging Hallmark day just as much as the other 364 days out of the year. The only thing different is that all of B-MORE now knows it as well! So smile, smile, smile, and have a grateful day.

**G-RUB**

How to Love Each Other Forever

Sneak kisses

Share covers

Cuddle on couches

Never go to bed angry

Hold hands

Forgive crabbiness

Laugh your selves silly

Flirt like you used to

Plan secret rendezvous

Be best friends

Give each other space

Kiss hello, good-bye, and I'm sorry

Send love letters

Remember all the good stuff

Forget mistakes

Never keep secrets

Believe in each other

Dream out loud

Bizzle

Nicolarbear,

I love you more and more every single day and hope you have the best Valentine's Day and Night ever, baby. You mean the world to me, and I love your boobs!

Love,

Jamie

I love you Monkey-Butt, and am so happy you, B-Man, and Puppy are in my life.

Dad, we love it when you scratch our tummies. Happy Valentine's Day.

Jillian (Jill Jill) and Tiger

Britney,

Just when I thought that I couldn't love you any more than I do you find ways to show me I can.

Forever yours,

Harry

Cheez Waffies
(For John)

My delicate blossom,

My delectable bon bon

In the dark jungle of the street

You slay for me

The wily cheez waffie

And bring to our hearth

Its dripping corpse!

Oh, light of my eye, flower of youth,

Paragon of manly virtue,

I am filled with incomparable glee

When you bite me!

How may I express my elation

As you absorb the impact of my vocifocation?

We met at Willie's Wax Works

On a wild and wooly night.

Our limitless love has stood the test

Of hardened piles of socks

And an anti-social habit.

Neither the cold and nakedness

Of extreme poverty

Nor the shock of sudden
riches

Could dim the glow of our ardor!

Were you covered with oozing carbuncles,

Had problems with the IRS,

I would not love you less!

Martha Gatewood

My Dear Angel, MARY PAT OSBOURNE:

I'll cry when I arrive to once again hold you

For every moment I had to live without you

Believing in the dream how in heaven we will be

Like we were before we were PUSHING UP DAISIES.

John T. Coiley

~*Jennifer Nicole Sassano*~

Happy Valentine's Day and Happy One-Year Anniversary! I love you so much. Someday, when the Republicans don't own this place, LGBT people will have the freedom to marry, and on that day I will marry you. I love you, now and forever!

~*Katherine Sumiko Riley*~

Babe,

I love you so much. You know that, but you don't know how much I appreciate you and everything you do for me. I feel lucky that I still have you in my life after all these years! And I can't wait for what's to come in OUR future-commitment, family, travel.

He loved her for almost everything she was and she decided that was enough to let him stay for a very long time. And now . . . she even cooks him pancakes.

You're the first thing I think of

Each morning when I rise

You're the last thing I think of

When I close my eyes

You're in each thought I have

And every breath I take

My feelings are growing stronger

With every move you make

You're an angel from above

who takes away my pain

My love for you is so strong

Its always just the same

You're the miracle in my life

Who can always make me smile

Just knowing that you care

Makes my life worthwhile

You've touched my heart and soul

Which you have from the start

Your warm soft words

Will never leave my heart

You are everything I want

You're so pure and true

I love you with everything I have

And I love everything that you do.

Love,

Vickie

Marie,

Thank you so very much for listening and helping us with our problems. Thanks for being such a great friend and being there for us when we needed someone. We appreciate everything you do for us.

Hallo, Stacie,

By the time you read this letter I will have already fallen madly in love with you.

IT'S TOO LATE! NOW I AM WISHING YOU A FABULOUS, ROMANTIC, LOVEMAKING, EATING GOOD VALENTINE'S DAY IN ALL CAPS TO EXPRESS HOW BIG MY <3 IS FOR YOU. AHHHHHHHHHHH!!

No, but seriously, I have extremely enjoyed all the time we've spent together over the past days/months/years and hope that we can continue to benefit from one another and grow in our relationship. The sight of your smile makes me smile, too, so keep smiling. See you at dinner, babe.

R's are Red, V's are Blue

On Valentine's, every day

Our hearts belong to you

True love always!

Greg, Timmy, William, Brooke

Eddie,

People often ask, "What makes him so special?" They will never understand that I fell in love with the kind eyes that led to the beautiful soul that has intertwined with mine. I fell in love with a man that made me wait three days for his phone number. I fell in love with a man who talked to me on that third day from the time I left work, to the market, and had me praying I made it home before my phone died, so I could continue to hear that hypnotic voice that STILL has me under a spell. I fell in love with a man who had me laughing uncontrollably until tears came down my face. That in itself had my soul. I hadn't laughed since I lost my father. I fell in love with a man who took the time to really get to know me. Who made me feel safe and secure, cherished and well-liked, not just loved. You're a goofball, sensitive, caring, understanding, gentle, and kind. You make me want to be the best I can be. You're helping me with my negative traits, and through it all you love me. You're sexy, intelligent, patient, laid-back, and crazy! You tore down my walls, unlocked my heart, and refuse to give it back. You accept the kid in me, the brat who insists on having her way. The bitch that refuses to share her true emotions, the hellcat when she feels she's right and you're dead damn wrong. I fell in love with a man who's skin is baby soft and could give Dove's milk chocolate a run for its money! Baby, I adore you, I value you, I respect you, and I like you, too! *Wink* I want the WORLD to know NOTHING will EVER have me leaving your side! I fell in love with my muse, my lover, my soul mate . . . MY FRIEND!

Thanks for loving me,

Declaration to Daryl

Are they your words or mine,

in this love's declaration?

Like a mirror's reflection,

Joy in sweet sensation . . .

Napping on the couch like a pretzel intertwined

I never could have imagined that you could be mine.

Well, I ain't no spring chicken, but I'm smart as a button,

I've learned that you've gotta show your love every day,

and there's someone for everyone if you can get out of your own way,

They say don't sweat the small stuff, but the small stuff still matters.

Say thank you, I adore you, I want you, I'm sure,

My best simple pleasure in life is when you walk through the door.

I know it's corny to say but I declare:

Your love is like a elaborate colorful tattoo.

Beautiful, Striking, Permanent.

I love you.

Lauren From the Blarney Stone.

You are the most beautiful woman I have ever set eyes on and I want you to know! You make my heart melt and make my dreams hot with your pretty blue eyes. I only wish you could be my valentine!

Thank you for being so wonderful and hot!! These past two months have been awesome and I'm so happy I got to share them with you. Have a wonderful Valentine's Day, baby!!!

Charlie,

The way to love anything is to realize that it might be lost.

Love,

Mr. J.E. Evans,

To the world you're maybe one person. But to me you are the world.

I love you . . . my daughter u have been and always will be the joy of my life.

Sandy

Jane,

You mean so very much to me! If ever I lose you . . . the emptiness within would remain.

Love always,

David

This Valentine is from Eddie (Honeybear) to Erica (Kitten). You're a very special person who showed me the meaning of Real, True, and Neverending Love. I look forward to our future together. I love you.

Baby,

The essentials of happiness are: something to do, someone to love, and something to hope for. Knowing you and being with you has given me all of the above.

Kisses,

Stacy

Lance,

Today is a special day that only you and I will know the true meaning of. The secret is out-"You LOVE me!"

S.

An Ode to JJ

You hate my taste in music,

You think I am a complete nut.

And when we chat you always burp,

Sometimes I tell you to kiss my butt.

I complain you never listen,

You always ramble to no end.

Yet, when we are together,

I've never had such a great friend.

You make me feel like I'm a kid again,

There really is no cure in store.

All I really know my sweet,

Is that I'll love you forevermore.

Happy first Valentine's Day!

Love,

Heather

Sweetie,

It is amazing just what you do to me still after almost 30 years! You really know how to light the fires within! Don't stop!

Sweetpea

My Sunshine,

You are the SUNSHINE of my life! THANK YOU for blinding me for the last 29 years.

Goody Yours

Our six-month anniversary is Feb. 15, so we are celebrating both occasions this weekend. Erin and I met in 2004 only as friends, until I discovered what I had been missing on Aug. 15 of '07. From that day on . . . she is the most amazing woman in the world, and I plan living the rest of my life with her by my side.

I Love Casey Inabins, Cutiepants, Pumpkinpatch Hall, aka Blackie Pickles.

Fred

Fate brought us together. Love makes us strong. Our fireworks are eternal.

Love,

Jonas

1Kennymine,

The first time you held my face to kiss me, love poured down onto my heart. Now, it's years later and I still feel that. Illusion and destiny have knocked the dreams down. I am still me and you are still you.

Toujours ta femme,

Safe Haven

Kim,

Love, joy, and happy moments fill my soul with every whisper of your name. Happy Valentine's Day.

Donte

J.,

You're more human than human. Baby, I'm amazed. Glad your path intersected with mine.

Big, big love,

Thank you for cuddling me so tight under the covers. I like it when you hold me close. Your love keeps me real.

Christina Nestor Samioglou,

You are my Greek goddess. I will love you always, even when we are old and you have more facial hair than me.

Love,

BR

My Dearest Matt JB,

We are over three years deep into one of the greatest human experiences/experiments . . . love. Without forsaking our individuality and idiosyncrasies, we are learning to grow together instead of apart, forgiving and forgetting, getting into bigger and better adventures/arguments/make-ups, and becoming the best of friends. My heart still skips a beat when I see you. Thank you for this wild and wonderful time of ups, downs, and all arounds!

I love you,

Stacie VH

LE,

Happy Valentine's Day. I know I don't say it much, and we do have our problems, but I do love you. Please be my valentine.

Suzie Q

Shannon

Thank you for the last two years. Even though we've had ups and downs, we made it through. I wouldn't have wanted it with anyone else. I can't wait to see how our love blooms in the coming future. I love you dearly, Kittie. Happy V-Day!

Love, xoxo,

Steve

Charley,

Nothing is sexier than watching you play w/your booger and calling you daddy. Jeg elsker dig.

Roses are red

My stomach is big bcuz of you.

I am happy and so are you.

Cornell, as we wait for our addition to come into this world, I want everyone to know that I am heavenly in love with you, babe.

Chiffon

Ryan,

The next five months will be the Pitts with you gone. I will B'more happy in 146 days once you are home!

Love always, in all ways,

Joi

Dear lover,

As I'm coming home from a hard day at work I think of you. It puts my mind and body at peace instantly. Your smile, your sense of humor, your sex make me high, so high. As I'm opening the door to my apartment, the winter cold approaching my bones gives me a chill. I walk in, close my door. I imagine you asking how was my day, giving me a hug. I know in my heart that you are . . . a transgender man. But it's all in my head. I take off my coat, make a move to the refrigerator, take out a bag of chips and dip, sit on the couch, and turn on the TV.

Forever yours,

"Othello"

P.S. I'm waiting for you

Sometimes a Long Denial (for Douglass Ball)

Sometimes a Long Denial . . .

that moment of Pause in Nature,

renovates the Soul . . .

makes Brave the Rivers of the Mind,

makes Whole the Man.

Then, to weep and fast and pray-

is Divinity in Circulation,

coursing on through the body,

the unmoved Temple-now pure and fortified.

Give Ear then to Introspection.

Well, I do remember

the Eyes set gaunt in the head

of old Jeremiah

as he lay down his helmet, sword, and shield-

then commenced to weep and curse

as he beheld and long lamented

the Destruction of Jerusalem . . .

"She weepeth sore in the night,

and her tears are on her cheeks: among all her

lovers she hath none to comfort her: all her

friends have dealt treacherously with her,

they are become her enemies.

It is nothing to you, all ye that pass by?

behold, and see if there be any sorrow like

unto my sorrow, which is done unto me . . . "

Sometimes that Long Denial . . .

that splendid moment's Pause in Nature,

renovates the Soul . . .

makes Brave the Rivers of the Mind,

makes Whole the Man.

Darryl Croxton

Love,

Ray,

It was not into my ear you whispered,

But into my heart.

It was not my lips you kissed,

But my soul.

Luv always,

Debi

HoneyBear,

We've been together for five months and I've loved every second of it. When I'm not around you I'm talking to you on the phone, when we're not on the phone I'm missing you. When I leave from seeing you I can't wait until the next time I'll see you again. I love you so much. Most people say it's because we're in the beginning of our relationship. I think it's 'cause we're meant for each other. You make me happier than I've ever been and I couldn't imagine my life without you. You have everything that I want and I couldn't ask for more, and even though a gift would be nice, having you is wonderful and I'd be fine with just that on Valentine's Day. It doesn't matter what we do as long as we spend it together. I love you and happy Valentine's Day.

xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo,

Sweetie

Trae,

You're the sparkle in my eye, the smile on my face, the tingling feeling when you speak, butterflies are there, the beat of my heart, I love for you to be my valentine. Will you be the arrow to my Cupid?

Although we're not
together

All of my love,

Lisa

L,

Remember when it was raining and you gave me your coat to put over my head? I ran in the house and laid down on your jacket, to dream of you while I slept, to smell you while I dreamt. You're my prince charming, the husband to my Barbie I imagined growing up. And now the real-life form is you. I envision your eyes, your perfect smile, my real life Ken, little girl inside, grown woman loving you. Through it all, you've been here.

Through it all, I've been there. You love me so hard, I love you so deep. Can't wait for all the realities with you. And I'll never stop dreaming of you while I sleep or smelling your scent in my dreams. And I'll never stop loving your eyes or your perfect smile. And I'll never stop loving you in our real life.

Love,

T

Bruce,

My love for you is equal to a big brown shooooooe! (No, that's not it)

My love for you is equal to a cow going moooooooo! (No, that's not it)

Anyway, I love you more than yesterday, but less than tomorrow, and I'm so glad that you chose me. Oh, and never put salt in your eye.

Jeniye

Marie,

Thank you so very much for listening and helping us with our problems. Thanks for being such a great friend and being there for us when we needed someone. We appreciate everything you do for us.

Love always, your wife,

Owen,

All the love that we shared

with the many ways you showed you cared.

I miss them dearly every day

more than any words can say.

Though you are no longer here

in my heart you're still so near.

For your smile is in my dreams

which is comforting at times it seems.

I'll live each day the best I can

until we are together again.

Now and forever my valentine

Owen, my love, you'll always be mine.

My love always,

Kathy

To my beautiful, sweet, and incredibly sexy fiancée Erin,

Everyone out in the world that is looking for love creates this perfect image in their head of their soul mate and all of the traits that person should have. These people wander the world looking for this person, but few ever find them. Some settle for something close to their ideal, and some, unfortunately, settle for something way off target. I was one of the lucky ones. After searching, and settling, and searching some more, I finally found the love of my life. You are everything that I ever dreamed of and you make me happier than I ever thought I could be. I love you with all my heart and I can't wait until our wedding day.

All my love,

Paul

From Dave B. to Sue B:

I just wanted to say thanks for all the nights at Monaghan's and BareBones, Max's, Duda's, the Wharf Rat, and DuClaw's (and all the pubs in Ireland)! I am glad you had as much fun learning about new beers and ales as I had introducing you to them! You are truly a gem and most lovable woman I know! I just wanted to wish you a wonderful Valentine's Day! I hope that maybe this will be the year you will finally accept my proposal!

Hugs and kisses,

When we met it was at a crazy time for me. I was heartbroken, going through a lot, and you understood that. I never thought I would be IN LOVE with you today, but I am. You made me realize a lot about me, my past, and my future. And I hope you will be a part of my future forever. SUGABEAR, I LOVE YOU FOREVER AND ALWAYS.

Buttercup,

More than the shining stars above

For you, I hold unbridled love

So pure and innocent and so true

Is the love I have for you

Passionate, romantic, flirty fun

You, by far, are number one

A heart of gold, a soul of joy

My man you are and, too, my boy

Stay with me upon this jaunt

With us near, we will not want

Our love has stood the test of time

Our hearts receive it as divine.

The future now is ours to share

To love and laugh and to care

Like the sun, our love will shine

Forever we'll be valentines

Forever,

Sprout

Your warm and loving gaze

I miss your smile

A memory in my mind!

I miss the way you would

make me laugh

I miss the way I felt

when I was in your arms!

I miss your soft touch

Of love we shared

I miss the way I felt

When I am with you!

I miss us being together

I wanted us to be forever

But now you are not here

And I wait endlessly for you!

I'll always love you

Forever and always

I have grown too attached to you

And now I can't let go of you!

BE MY VALENTINE,

All our love,

To William-Preston,

Although we have our world of problems, you hold me down through battling my illness, I love you and want to thank you for putting up with this roller-coaster ride. In the end, God will reward you.

Love you, Puppy Paws.

Carolyn

This is to the love of my life, the person who makes my heart beat, makes me smile, helps make my day complete when I hear your voice, believed in me when I didn't at times believe in myself, and above all, you love me unconditional, through my good and my bad. Yes, Rodney Spruill (Skola), you are my valentine. . . .

I've known you for well over 10 years. About four years ago something that we didn't plan happened. I felt that being in love would be something I would never have the privilege to experience again. Look at my life now-I have a home boy, A LOVER ( DO I EVER!!!!), but more important I have a best friend .

We've been through a whole lot, which made us closer and made our relationship unbreakable. Rodney, in the beginning you required extra TLC, and it never mattered if you had something or nothing. I fell in love with YOU.

Finally, I would like to thank SL and AB for letting us go. They didn't realize that they each had a rare and one of a kind gem that they let get away. Rodney, I LOVE YOU, I will take good care of you and your heart. I will always be by your side until death departs us. HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY. I LOVE YOU.

Bernita Branch (Sista Souljah)

The weights we carried on our backs are now as light as feathers. I have the left wing, you the right, arm in arm we fly together.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ALEX RASHEEDA,

I html error you. <3

TIA,

WORDS CAN NOT BEGIN TO EXPRESS THE WAY I FEEL FOR YOU. FROM THE FIRST TIME I LOOKED INTO YOUR EYES, I KNEW I HAD FOUND SOMETHING REAL. YOU WERE MY FAIRY TALE COME TRUE. WITh YOU I SEE MORE THAN JUST HAPPY ENDINGS. YOU MAKE ME BETTER!!!! THE LOVE I HAVE FOR YOU WILL BE A LOVE I HAVE TODAY, TOMORROW, AND ALWAYS . . . YOU WILL FOREVER HOLD MY HEART. YOU ARE MORE THAN JUST THE BEST PART OF MY DAY-YOU MAKE MY DAY. THAT'S WHY I WANT TO TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO EXPRESS TO YOU AND THE WORLD THE LOVE I HAVE FOR YOU. THAT FROM THIS DAY FORTH MY DAYS WILL NOT BE COMPLETE IF YOU'RE NOT BY MY SIDE. YOU REALLY MAKE ME FEEL BRAND NEW NOT JUST ON VALENTINE'S DAY, BUT EVERY DAY. THAT'S WHY MY DEFINITION OF LOVE IS YOU.

Happy Valentine's Day, Chipmunk. I can't wait to see you tonight. I love you.

I am incomplete without you.

When you need me, I cannot hold you.

In our universe, our minds, souls, and hearts coexist.

In our world, nothing else matters.

For you I will persevere.

My Dearest Darling,

It is my distinct pleasure to celebrate three long years of lovely loving and lengthy learning with you and yours. Your words penetrate the deepest parts of me. You are a deep-sea diver; a diver you'll always be. I hope to home in on everything that needs improving and to always work on making even the littlest things count tremendously. You make me a better person and I sing your songs every day in the back of my brain and in the front of my fantasies. You inspire me with your relentless rhymes and your perpetual paronomasia. Here's to another 50 February 14ths felicitously following what we've fortuitously found. I love you, Rob.

Your Pretty Little Speckled, Speckled Hen.

We've been together for just over 10 years and but somehow it feels like 30,

I'm the cool and popular one, and to tell the truth you're pretty nerdy,

And I'll continue loving you, well, at least until the spring.

All my love,

As you read this, I know your eyes will roll, but you have me, heart, mind, and soul!

I love you more each day of my life; I am very lucky to have you as my wife

All of my love, forever and always,

Upon meeting Beatrice at the age of 9, Dante was instantly swept into a maddening love for the girl. It is through this love and adoration of God's creation-Beatrice-that Dante came to understand the magnificence of God. Beatrice remained his muse throughout his life; she alone could guide Dante's Virgil from Mount Purgatory to Paradise.

Yours

To the volunteers of Baltimore,

who tirelessly serve our city.

Your qualities are great and many.

Your kindness is amazing,

supporting and changing lives forever,

and sharing your love in any endeavor.

Words can't express how happy I am that you are in my life. The time that we have spent together has been great, and I am convinced that the best is yet to come.

On this consumerific, overstuffed teddy bear, yet empty, mandatory-or-else-the-doghouse "holiday," I laugh with a bit of disgust. Rather than offer you something special and cliché on this cliché, I dare to recognize the reality of our LOVE; waking up every day with you, choosing to participate and share in this madness together as partners, spontaneous adventures, photo sessions, trips to abandoned places, craft nights, making dinner together, appreciating the ordinary everydayness, arguing and then listening, being able to apologize, being open to change, respecting our differences, truly understanding the differences, helping me grow, and supporting each other's individual path. I thank you, Sunshine, for all of the lessons you have taught me and the many more to come!!!

OPENLOVE,

Jus,

Thanks for insisting that true love does, indeed, exist. And also for being the most attractive ever. Call me.

Love,

RHB,

You think you know your fate..

But sometimes you can't hardly wait

To take that girl out

On your first date.

To the PaperMoon

We would talk

And we would swoon,

Taking our time, so it wasn't

Too soon.

Who would think

I would marry the girl

That I was making out with

by the kitchen sink.

But it all just felt right

Now that girl is my wife

And I'm so happy I found

And the love of my life.

JB

To my son:

Lucas, I love you very much. I can't wait to see you again. Muah.

Love,

Daddy

Happy Valentine's Day, Schmuffin! Thanks for putting up with me for the past year and a half.

Love,

Your little schmoo

Will,

Roses are red, violets are blue

I'm glad we're together, because I love you.

Be my valentine every day.

Love,

Laura

Jzar, I love you!

Angela,

You are the one who makes me complete,

The one I think about every day.

Every time I'm near you,

I start falling in more than one way.

You make my heart beat faster,

With every breath I take.

I know I'm in love with you,

Trust me, this is not fake.

The first time I fell in love,

She ripped my heart in two.

Forgive me if I seem scared,

I just don't want to lose you.

The first time my heart was broken,

I thought I was through.

I swore I'd never love again,

Until I found you . . .

Love,

Adam

My Dearest Luke,

This year we share our fourth Valentine's Day together! You are my best friend, and I couldn't imagine life without you. We are truly high school sweethearts, and you will always have my heart. I love you more!

xoxo,

Jessica

I heart my hubby, Keith!

Love,

Lisa

D.L.,

You are the physical manifestation of my deepest desires and fears. After all the pain and tears, you still manage to give me butterflies. I will always want you, dream of you, breathe you in deep, love you . . .

Annes

When we first met, I knew it would be wild to be with you.

Now, for better or for worse we combine.

Every year we build a new adventure together.

Jessica, I hope that you will still be my valentine.

Liam

Beans,

Whether you're lean and clean,

or grimy and shaped more like a bean,

a toast to you on this day of St. Valentine:

You taught me to preen,

helped me find jeans,

and enforced slacked-on routines,

Always new and tasty your cuisine,

you're a dancing machine,

and our kisses, we've counted: umpteen.

We've been ATVin' and jet-skiin',

(had our fun on land and marine,)

I can't wait to reconvene:

The next episode where'll be seen,

what happens to Griffin and Sabine,

in India, our The Golden Mean.

Love,

Keans

Torbin,

You set my heart aflame. May the passion between us keep burning. Thanks for taking a chance.

Heather

You can predict the weather but you can't predict love. I can't do this alone . . .

You were a beautiful surprise, heaven sent, irreplaceable, my summer love, we were best friends, my B.U.D.D.Y. You killed me softly and I died in your arms. Easy conversation, I could tell you exactly how I feel. Now I can't get you off my mind, brokenhearted, I can't live without you-dangerously in love. Kissing you, that butta love, your smile, your scent, the way you walk, your style of dress . . . it was like a dream, like you walked out of heaven.

My apology. I had to lose myself to love you better. You never realize what you have until it's gone. Now I'm incomplete, lost without you.

You were my little secret, you sent me flying and you will always be my friend. There is no greater love than what I feel for you, so today I'm wishing on a star. This Valentine's Day I want to give myself to you, and I ask one thing of you. Please, come back to me. I can't stop missing you; I'm officially missing you, and can't get you outta my system. This is my love song. Let me love you. Happy Valentine's Day, Trey.

Love,

J.T. Rich

To Heidi Demers, wherever you are, happy Valentine's Day from your "first love."

Dan Sample,

I woke up on a boat, and I thank the stars for the light of your love. I want to be your best friend, too.

Love,

Me

Celebrity Sightings! Deagan! They're just like you! They do their own grocery shopping! On Dec. 3 Deagan we're seen shopping at the Whole Foods in Harbor East. Bag of choice, paper, of course.

My dearest Alana, be my valentine the other 364 days this year and ALL the rest. I love you deeply, more than I ever express. Marry ME! Bunnay(I) With all my love, always and forever . . . esp in this lifetime.

Love,

James

Ninja warrior seeking love of my life. Preferably someone that goes to Turbokick so that we will be evenly matched when it comes time to work out our differences. I would settle for a Jedi master also.

Love, will you be around when I find particles?

Happy ValenTIMES Day, Stephy. My world is utter sh*t, but having you back in my world makes everything okay. Ilymtaitu.

Love,

J

Nadine,

You are about 80 pounds heavier than I

And I sometimes get scared and bite you

But I'd like nothing better than to have

A lesbian dog affair.

Love,

Spider

To my friends: I love you all.

Buffy, I love you

and I would kill a monkey

if that would prove it.

Alma Martinez, my sweet love, I want to show the world how much I love you, on this Valentine's Day, also the day we met, when love was everywhere. Alma, I LOVE YOU!

Trudy,

If it returns, keep it and love it forever. Happy Valentine's Day.

John

To my gangly Loverboy Bruce,

Face like a hound dog, hung like a horse

Paddle me like a Prijon I'm your CoolDoc of course

Hump me and thump me and lube me up boys

We may not have Paris but we've got Illinois

Love,

CD1

Dear Ms. Cupid,

I hope that this letter reaches you during your most busiest of times. I write asking for your help. I have a love I'm trying to reach. She seems not to believe in love as I do. If I speak about Christmas to her, she'll mention Santa. If I speak about Easter, it's a bunny not Jesus. So why, when it's Valentine's Day, do people speak of Victoria's Secret and not you? As a hopeless romantic, I turn to you asking may you take your sharpest arrow and aim for the heart of my sweetie? Let Danielle know that I love her truly. Her heart is huge and bright, so she's an easy target. Danielle, if you're reading this, then love is really in the stars for us. So may love and happiness spring eternal for us both in each other's arms. So believe in Cupid as I do, 365-366 in a leap year. Happy Valentine's Day.

Love always,

MDW

Granny,

There's no way to let you know how much we appreciate everything you do for us every day. We love you with all our hearts. Thank you for being the glue that holds our crazy family together. Love you always. Happy Valentine's Day.

Love,

Wayne Jr. and Kristina

Happy Valentine's Day to Bubba-yum, yum!!! I've love you for three years, so up close, some from afar! I'll always love you, now and forever! "You're my lover, my friend, my equal, my peace of mind, and when I look at you, then I know what love is." I still can't believe how you love me, and why? You put a ring around my heart, "hubba-hubba"! Thanks for the love you've shown me. "UR #1 N My BK."

With all my love,

yum yums (Bubba Bear)

Tony,

I love and adore you. I've waited 42 years for you . . . and I'll never live without you again. There ain't nothing about you that don't do something for me. I'll love you always.

Lori

Happy Valentine's Day, Michelle Hood,

I love you always and forever. Will you marry me?

Love always,

Myron,

My lover, my friend, my one and only. Happy Valentine's Day. I love you with all my heart. I remember the first time we kissed and stared into one another's eyes. I knew you were the sexy man of my dreams standing before me. I thank the man upstairs every day for you. Baby, I love you and happy Valentine's. Can't wait to see you soon.

Love always and forever, your angel,

Tyelisha

Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought that I would ever meet a soul as beautiful as yours, Max. If someone would've told me that in my future an angel would drop from the sky into my world, I wouldn't have believed them. If there is, indeed, "somebody for everybody" in this great big place, my someone has arrived.

Max, you have given me a joy beyond words and a love that everyone hopes to find. Seems as if we're allowed one true love, and you are MINE!! Happy Valentine's Day.

Your soul mate,

KTM

To my dear husband Bernie, thank you for yesterday and bringing me happiness 15 Sept. 1958. Thank you for today being so thoughtful and overlooking my faults. Thank you always for all of our tomorrows and sharing your love for almost 50 years. Happy Valentine's Day today and always. I love you.

Your wife forever,

Sylvia

There were once two proud assholes who fell in love and since there was nothing solid they never stopped falling and like in the ocean sometimes a person doesn't know which way is up and like in the ocean sometimes a person can't know which way is up and so which way they fell [ing] was many and ever vacillating.

Enter: THEY fucking and fucking; THEY drawing blood and drawing blood. more.

As they fell,

SHE: glamour.

SHE: I've got pleasure to burn.

SHE: never sisters.

SHE: let's talk about virginities, or should we not talk about virginities? Maybe enunciation makes real? (HER deepest fear is enunciation makes real.)
