Valentine's Day Alone Poems

Valentine's Day Alone Poems

Being alone while everyone is celebrating love in their lives can be an incredibly lonely and depressing experience. Valentine's Day is a time for sharing our love with those who are important to us. Not having someone to share this with does not mean, however, that we cannot also participate. All of us have people who are meaningful and special to us, these people can become an outlet for expressing our love and sharing in the festivities of celebrating love. In this way, Valentine's Day can be a time for sharing love with others even if not the traditional expression.

9 Poems about Being Alone on Valentine's Day

  1. 1. A Valentine's Wish

    Wishing To Be Loved In Return

    Have you ever set your heart on someone
    Though you didn't stand a chance?
    Have you ever wished that someone
    Would think the way you do?
    Have you ever fallen in love with someone
    Who didn't love you too?
    Have you ever tried to explain to them
    The feelings in your heart,
    Only to hear a response
    That tears your heart apart?
    Have you ever spent so much time with someone,
    Even though it hurts inside?
    Have you ever tried to save a friendship
    By having your feelings hide?
    Have you ever wanted that friendly hug to turn into a kiss?
    Have you ever wished your heart would stop wishing
    For those things that won't come true?
    Have you ever wished that that someone would try to love you too?

  3. 2. Valentine's Day

    Today is Valentine's Day,
    A day to show a loved one you care,
    But how can you hold them, kiss them, console them
    When no one is even there?

    Today is a day of us together
    And not a second to be left apart,
    But knowing today won't bring those things
    Continues to break my heart.

    I know I'm supposed to be happy,
    And I really look the part,
    But how can I smile
    And pretend that I'm happy
    When a piece is missing from my heart?

    Today won't change the crying.
    Today won't change pain.
    Today won't change the fact
    That heartache is now a part of my name.

    Today for me is lonely.
    Today for me is untrue.
    Today for me is wishing
    That once again I still had you.

    But wishes are like fairy tales;
    They rarely do come true,
    So today is a day of loneliness
    And me being sad and blue.

    Today for you is laughing
    Because to you, my love is a game,
    So while you're happy spending time with friends.
    I'm left to drown in pain.

    Today is not a day anymore.
    It's a waste of useless time.
    Today for me is
    Loneliness, heartache, crying, praying
    That soon again you'd be mine.

  5. 3. Your Valentine

    This poem was written for a loved one who has passed away. 2-8-19

    Sending A Valentine To Heaven

    I sent a rose to you today.
    I hope you didn't mind.
    I left it with the Archangel
    who was standing just outside.

    I left a note upon it.
    Signed, to my Valentine.
    The simple words were blurred
    from the tears I could not hide.

    You have enriched my life with laughter
    and made the sun to shine.
    I love you and I miss you,
    Signed, your Valentine.

    Sometimes when my heart is heavy,
    and these tears I can't avoid,
    I would rather have loved you for a moment
    than to have an empty void.

    Please save a place for me, my love.
    I hope you wouldn't mind.
    Remember that I love you,
    Signed, your Valentine.

  6. 4. Valentine's

    • By Gwen
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems September 2008

    Thanks for breaking my heart.

    No roses, no candy, no darling or dear...
    Guess I'll spend it alone this year.
    Men talk and they flirt; they wink and they sigh...
    but when it comes time... there's no one to buy.

    I like my roses...and wine.
    I love to snuggle, cuddle and dine.
    Just seems it's something that men don't want.
    Guess they don't understand the hurt of a heart.

    I'll get no gift, no card, no call ....
    just me laying here...or walking the hall.
    No heart that flutters or skips that beat
    when I see you coming down the street.
    No hugs, no kisses, no special treats,
    just me hurting heart... that has no beat~

    This day's for lovers AS IT should be...
    just regret the fact there's none for me.
    I try so hard to find that love...
    the one they say is sent from above.

    But alas for me, it's not to be...
    so alone this Valentine's Day I'll be.

    For all you lovers...cherish your mate.
    Explain to him how you met was fate!

    Remember the giggles the fun and folly,
    of how it felt to be happy and jolly.

    So care for your man, care for your woman,
    and you will have that love that makes the heart flitter and flutter and the pulse run fast.
    So cherish them on this glorious day and remember how great a love can be.
    Happy Valentine's Day!

  7. 5. Broken Hearts' Day

    • By Lisa M. Daugherty
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2018

    I wrote this while lying in bed on the first Valentine's Day after the passing of my husband, Jeff, who passed December 18, 2011. We were married 25 years. I miss him.

    Missing Husband On Valentine's Day

    Here I sit, all alone
    in my quiet, empty home.
    Where do broken hearts go
    on this sweethearts' day?
    I don't know!
    Rest assured, I will visit your grave,
    grasping our love and the memories we made.

    I can't let you go.
    I can't make you stay.
    So tell me now,
    what do I do with this day?

    Broken Hearts' Day,
    that's what today is.
    Tears and sadness are how I live.
    Partners for life, that's what you said,
    but here I lie alone in our bed.

    So full of sadness, consumed in grey.
    No one to hold me on Valentine's Day.
    You will be mine again someday,
    but for now,
    right here is where I lay,
    all alone on this
    Broken Hearts' Day.

    Valentine's Day is a sad occasion with only memories for company. The one you love may have left, but the heart will never let go.

    Valentine's Day Without The One You Love

    I wonder, is there Valentine's Day in heaven?
    For the one I love is there.
    I would love to send her some flowers
    To let her know how much I care.

    I would like to say I love you
    And hold her gently in my arms.
    Just to make her smile once more,
    Dear Lord, is all I ask.

    So if flowers grow in heaven,
    Lord, pick a rose for me.
    Present it to the one I love,
    Then kiss her tenderly.

    Tell her how much I miss her
    And in my heart she'll always stay.
    She'll always be my Valentine.
    Not even death can take that away.

  9. 7. This Will Be My Valentine

    • By Theresa Witbooi
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2013

    This is for those who have not found the love of their life yet. Also for those who have been disappointed in love. To stay positive and believe that one is out there in the world. We are alone and need to trust that there is a great mate awaiting us.

    Inspirational Valentine Poem

    He will be gentle, loving, strong, sensitive and kind.
    He will be all this and more combined.
    He is somewhere in this world of rage.
    When we meet, we'll be on the same page.
    For me, he will move mountains.
    Together we'll drink from crystal fountains.
    He will always bring me flowers.
    His kisses will rain on me like showers.
    He will always be there for me in times of trouble.
    We'll never have a major squabble.
    He will playfully ruffle my hair.
    In my ears he will whisper, "Don't despair."
    Without reason we will dance.
    Against those who hurt me he will take a tough stance.
    He will not lie or cheat, in each other's arms we'll admit defeat.
    In love he will always be fair.
    His heart only mine to share.
    His eyes always on me will shine.
    A man, a heart, so fine,
    This will be my Valentine!

  10. 8. Can I Be Your Valentine?

    • By Casey E. Gauman
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    Every day we act as though we are just good friends.
    It is though we are seeing through a different lens.
    But I wish we could be more.
    Because crying makes me feel poor.
    Poor of love, as though nobody loves me.
    If you look it isn't that hard to see.

    Can't we be more than just good friends?
    Can't we look through the same lens?
    Can you picture us together?
    Can I be the certain her?
    The her you're always talking about.
    The one you say you can't live without.

    I know what I ask is a little much.
    I just want us to be able to touch.
    Hold each other and never let go.
    But if I ask will the answer be no?
    Either way I have to take a chance.
    May our hearts have one dance?

    A special wish to all people, everywhere.

    A Wish For A Happy Valentine's Day

    A wish for you
    on this Valentine's Day
    that you'll take time to laugh
    and maybe to play.
    Just bury the blues,
    let go your worries,
    do something happy,
    and giggle in flurries.
    Run in the forest,
    hug a small child,
    grin at the clouds,
    and do something wild.
    Just for this day,
    be perfectly free,
    for that is the way
    you were meant to be.
    Watch how your magic
    blossoms in wonder
    as lightning flashes
    in evening thunder,
    and know in your heart
    come what may,
    I send you my blessings
    this Valentine's Day.
