“Illustrated Valentines,” Friend, Feb. 2003, 37
Glue this page to heavy paper and cut out the hearts. Draw a picture of each person you’ll give the valentine to on the back of his or her heart. Then give it away with a hug and a kiss.
Your touch is soft,
Your smile is bright.
Your love has filled my world with light.
I love you back with all my might.
You are so strong
And good and wise.
No valentine of any size
Could hold my love—but
this one tries.
You are so caring,
And so kind
That even if this doesn’t rhyme,
I know you’ll be my valentine.
Dear Primary Teacher,
You taught me
Shining truths divine.
When I grow old, they’ll still be mine,
And I’ll still be your valentine.
