Every time we kiss, I feel like we are making a connection between our two souls. I love you now and always. Happy Valentine's Day my love

I love you more than all the stars in the sky.
I love you more as each moment passes us by.
I love you more with every breath I take.
I love you more with each promise we make. Happy Valentine's Day 2016.

When I see you, I freeze.
When I hear you, I hush and
when I smell you, I breathe.
Because you are the light of my eyes,
The voice of my mind
and the oxygen of my heart. Happy Valentine's Day dear

My love for you grows more with each passing day,
the thought of your gorgeous face takes my breath away
Those brown eyes fill my soul with happiness,
And I can't miss those luscious lips I love to kiss. Happy Valentine's Day my love

I look at you and I realize just how much you've been a part of my life, how special you are and how much you've made me happy. I look at you and I realize that heaven must be missing an angel. Happy Valentine's Day my sweet heart

My relationship with you is like sugarcane

Break it, crush it, squeeze it, even beat and grind it,

You will always get more sweet. Happy Valentine's Day my love.

When I first saw you I was afarid to talk to you
When I first talked to you I was afraid to like you
When I first liked you I was afarid to love you
Now that I love you I'm afraid to lose you. Happy Valentine's Day 2016

If a kiss were a raindrop, I'd send you showers.
If hugs were a second, I'd send you hours.
If smiles were water, I'd send you the sea.
If love was a person, I'd send you me.

Wishing you a very happy Valentine's Day

Love is not a word to say
Love is not a game to play
Love doesn't start in February and finish in May
Love is yesterday, tomorrow and today. Happy Valentine's Day

Tears may dry
Years may fly
But my love for you will never die. Happy Valentine's Day my dear
