We scour the internet for the best inspirations for your Valentine’s Day message. This year, we must say Bloom & Wild gave us waves of laughter from the oh-so-relatable moments served in short poems.
Here are a few of our favorites:
“Roses aren’t all red
But as your friend, I’d like to say
You’re never getting rid of me,
Even when I’m old and grey.”
“Not all roses are red,
But it’s my best friend duty
To share this with you:
I love your cute booty.”
“Roses aren’t all red,
Helping the planet is vital,
Which is why I get excited
When you meticulously recycle.”
See the pattern? It doesn't look that hard, right. Start your Valentine’s Day poem now. You can do it! 💪🏻💪🏻
#3 The Multi-Language Way
