You are the muse that inspired me
Composing this melody.
You will always be my only glee
And I will always love you endlessly.
You are such a precious flower to me
That I will protect with a lot of care.
And your smile is the key
To save me from my nightmare.
I always want to look at your eyes
To see how they sparkle
To see if they don’t tell lies
When you say everything is fine.
Tell me you will always be mine,
Tell me you will always hold my hand,
Tell me you want to write together
Our own storyline.
I love when I’m teased by you
Always giving me that little grins;
I always lose and you always win.
“Hey, stay here” I want you by my side
Please, hug me and don’t let me go
My love, be my guide
Show me the way to your never explored spots.
I’m sorry if I’m moving too fast
But when I’m next to you
It’s impossible to control these feelings.
Tell me you will just look at me,
Tell me you will just love me,
Tell me you will always stay with me.
Margarida Azevedo, 11.º B
What is love, if not the sound of your name?
What is love, if not the way you smile at me?
What is love, if not the way you hold my hand?
The beat of your heart is like a lullaby, to which I could
Fall asleep everynight
“Love” doesn’t seem enough to describe how I feel about
But I guess for now it will do
I’m a teenager in love
And I’m crazy about you
Only my heart knows
How much I love you
Raquel Serdoura, 11.º D
My Valentine could and can be so much
It can be that person I went by on the hallway
It can be the one who stood out from the pack
But my Valentine could be you
My Valentine could be you, my beloved mom
Who held me through cries and whines
And that was always with me
At all times
My Valentine could be you, my dear friend
Who I’ve told my deepest sadness
And heard me through screams
Even though you’re also a mess
I’m surrounded by “Valentines”
I’m surrounded by love
Because today is not about “making out”
Today is about what makes the world move
Today is about you and me
And those people over there
Let’s hug each other
Let’s hold hands
Let’s tell some dad jokes
And forget about “Valentine’s day” plans
Diana Maia, 12.º C
