As My Dreams Come True

by David P Carroll aged 19

I dream of holding you
Forever my sweetheart
Thinking about
You throughout​ the day
Forever my sweetheart
I remember my happiness
The day you truly
Came into my life
Was the
The day you became my wife,

My dreams all coming true
But asleep next to you
Is my dream come true
Having you in my life
Is forever happiness
As your truly my wife,
To be together forever
Is true love Sweetheart
But to whisper
Every night to you,

I truly love you is
My forever dream come true…

Boyfriends are sweet
but a bit irritating at school
sometimes they are special
and sometimes they are cool

Valentine’s Day

by Miss Gilmore aged 25

Very exciting
Amazing day
Love is in the air
Everyone sending cards
Nice atmosphere
Tell someone you love them
Incredible feeling
Nobody is sad
Everyone is there for each other!

Happy Valentine’s Day

by Diya Fathima Mohammed Minhaj aged 13

We met under a tree,
It was just him and me.
We held our palms and strolled on,
Told our stories to the birds’ call.

I saw him as my valentine,
But was curious to know if he was only mine.
It seemed to be reality,
But sadly, my fate had failed me.

When I realised it was just a dream,
My cries were that of a stream.
Would I get a man just like whom I had met?
Would I get the love just like what I had felt?

A Smile Goes a Long Way…

by Elsie aged 12

It started with a smile,
A glance,
At them,
A card,
A letter,
A word,
A smile is all it takes,
Then you could be there,
Making friends and maybe more,
Now I have friends the bestest of all,
All it takes is a smile,
A glance,
At them,
A card,
A letter,
A word,
Then you could be there,
It started with a smile.

Roses are Red

by Sulaf aged 11

Roses are red,
Violets are blue.
If you had a McDonald hairline,
I would’ve told you.
Oh merry Christmas,
No presents for you.
No offence to you,
How old are you?

Evolution of Love

by Katie aged 12

It all started with a note
To meet under the tree
Where we used to share our memories
Of songs and silence
Of friendships and fights
That all led up to this moment
She gave a warm smile
Then a nod
Then a hug
Then a hand held
A kiss blowed
A kiss shared
Then with a sentence
Then a poem
Then a page
Then a phrase
a word
a symbol
A thousand hearts later
Look where this took us
Back under the tree
Where our hearts cry
Where we say goodbye

Truth or Dare

by Elsie aged 12

Do you like anyone? My friend said,
Me: Maybe.. ,
but yes was in my head.
Friend: Who, who, who do you like!?
Crush: I’m not saying.
Me: Me too I said.
It all started with truth or dare.
Friend: Okay I’ll make it fair,
Both tell me who you like,
Then I will say,
Fine, yes, we said with nerves.
Friend: Okay here we go,
You like each other!
Me & crush: Wait, what? Woah!

date is fun today


by Alisha aged 10

Friends smile at you
They like your face
They want to be with you
Any old place

Friends have fun with you
Friends share
They’re glad when you’re happy
When you’re sad they care

If you’re a friend then you care too
That’s why your friends are glad you are you!!!!

It’s nice to have a friend like you!
I’ll tell you what I’m going to do!
Because you make me so fine!
I’m going to make you my valentine!!
