  1. #LoveLindorSA When i was down and i seemed like a write-off u kept me…
    When life erupted like a venomous volcano u kept me…..
    When winds blew like a hurricane u kept me…
    Trials came like that of a death row case u kept me…
    At my best u kept me…
    Through it all u kept me…
    Now its my turn to celebrate you, your life, your love, your patience, your endurance!
    I would love to keep you all my life, at times i don’t feel worthy having you…but your love has kept me so long that i can never imagine being without you. Let me keep you to eternity that even when my last breath fades away like a butterfly out of its cocoon i will rest assured knowing that far or near u will forever keep me in your secret pavilion.
    Be my valentine forever, celebrate our love that is waxed together…
    Keep me as I have kept u.

  2. Thank you for 19 amazing years,
    you have stuck with me through smiles and tears.
    You still make my heart skip a beat,
    you are my baby sweet.
    Love you today, tomorrow and always.

  3. Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    21 years, 3 kids later
    Our love still is true <3

    Would love to win this…my husband and I are obsessed with Lindt….almost as much as we are obsessed with each other 🙂

  4. My Heart is something that gives me life
    My Heart feeds and nurtures as if it were my wife
    My Heart is kind and loving down to the last drop
    My Heart keeps me going not wanting to stop
    My Heart has a pulse to it unlike anything in this universe
    My Heart gives me strength in the hardest traverse
    My Heart gives me structure in such an unstructured place
    My Heart beats at an insurmountable pace
    My Heart bonds me together so that nothing could tear it apart
    My Heart is something I loved right from the start
    You Yes!!!! You. Are My Heart 🙂 🙂 🙂

  5. U have captured my heart
    U have deepely touched my Soul…
    We belong in each other’s armz…
    Because we are sooo good together…
    Love lives here…..

    (I memorised this poem from a card written to me by my sweet husband 10 years ago)

  6. Now that you are here
    I have nothing to fear
    With you is where I belong
    I know it, I feel it so strong
    Nothing has been more clear
    That it is your love I hold so dear
    Deep inside is the cry of my heart
    I never ever want us to part
    I am a hopeless, romantic man
    Doing the best he can
    To show you for sure
    That my love for you is pure
    I will do whatever it takes
    I don’t care about the stakes
    You and only you I want
    A prayer I know God will grant

  7. To my daugter, I love you so
    You are so special, I hope you know
    Love shines through you for all to see
    I’m in awe that you’re part of me

  8. How would I live without you
    I don’t want to find out
    27 years with my boo
    Has given me so much to shout about
    The good times and bad
    The funny and sad
    Makes me closer to you
    Roses are red violets are blue
    Where would I be without you ❤️

  11. I’m not perfect but you love me, when there is nobody to hear me scream or cry, I still have you, because only you can love me skinny or over weight, long hair or short, you taught me to love myself.We come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to love a imperfect person perfectly..

  12. Single I am but alone I’m not
    For two crazy kids I have got
    There are hugs and kisses everyday
    With a extra treat on valentine day

  13. Roses are red,
    Love writing ain’t easy,
    That’s why this poem
    Has turned out so cheesy.

    This poem is for my daughter Zoe. I have shared this giveaway on Twitter (@flutterbymegs). Fingers crossed.

  14. 17 years later, but I knew from the start
    That you would always have my heart
    This Valentines Day make sure you go for the best
    In finding me a gift, just leave out the rest
    Lindt chocolates are more than yummy
    And will make me the very happiest mummy

  15. 15 years together, wow where has the time gone
    We’ve weathered many storms which is a rare phenomenon.
    You were this close to throwing us away
    But we’ll be celebrating our 15th Valentine’s together this Sunday.
    6 years of marriage, and two sons to boot
    And you still love me even when I wear a swimsuit.
    For always, my love, I solemnly swear
    I will be walking on cloud 9 and air.

  16. Carlton-james Jnr Kennedy Married life is not all Sunshine and roses. It’s the roughest oceans and the most challenging obstacles. We have overcome the roughest oceans and we have stood as champions overcoming the most challenging obstacles. 4 years going on 5 may our marriage only grow from strength to strength.
    Love is inevitable we don’t chose who we love it just happens we can sometimes try and resist but if its meant to be in will remain. I have always said you are my boomerang even when I tried the hardest to forget you always ended up coming back. Marrying you was a chose , falling in love with you was unstoppable. You will always be my heart on the outside.

  17. My hubby is a gem.. he’s really very sweet.. he always remembers to put down the toilet seat. Its the little things in life that makes my heart skip a beat, small little surprises.. or a foot massage in this heat.. We’ll be celebrating our 7th wedding anniversary in April this year.. and he knows what my heart desires.. my love for lindt is very clear. So I really hope to win this treat, its fantastic to behold.. those strawberries and cream truffles… YUMMMMY i’m sold. Shared on twitter @lynnandjp

  18. My dear for ever
    I shall leave u never
    Time will make our love grow
    Further from you I will never go
    I love u now, I loved u then
    I will love u forever always and again

  19. Love is blind, love is kind, the moment I met you life became worthwhile,till this day I love that you mine and always thank god for you being so kind

  20. Before You
    I were so lost
    had an empty
    feeling inside….

    My heart were aching
    had a longing for Your love

    I were stubborn,
    selfish at time,
    ’cause I wanted to
    be in control of my life

    Slowly but surely
    You showed me
    that I’m nothing….

    Still I didn’t want
    to listen….
    ’till I fell flat on my face!!

    You were the One
    to pick me up
    to carry me
    and to surround
    me with Your love
    that I couldn’t hide from….

    I opened my heart…
    let You in and fell
    in love with You!

  21. Love you through the good
    When we laugh and life’s a hoot
    Love you as a super dad
    Exploration makes me glad
    Love you when frowns appear
    Yes you, I hold you always dear
    I am grateful for your sunny smile
    With you fore’er I’ll walk The Mile

  22. You are my life
    I’m so happy to be your wife
    Thanks for the last eight years
    With you by my side I have no fears
    You make me smile
    And inspire me to walk a mile
    We can conquer anything together
    I will love you forever
    Oh dearest hubby of mine
    Please be my Valentine

  23. When I met you first, I thought my heart might burst.
    You were funny and kind and always on my mind.
    17 Years later you still make me smile and you always go the extra mile.
    I hope we win the “under the stars” hamper, this would be a great Valentines Day pamper!

  24. The only thing in this world
    Better than chocolate
    Is your love

    At first, it’s true, they may seem very similar –
    Both you and chocolate are very goopy,
    You both make my tummy feel warm and happy on the inside,
    as you plant delicious kisses on my lips, leaving me licking my lips and wanting for more.
    But the difference is, unlike chocolate which never seems to last long enough, your love never runs out.

  25. Sweet is my valentine,
    Oh so divine,
    Like a box of chocolates,
    By Lindor’s Design,
    On this, Cupid’s day,
    I hope this, your love will sway

  26. With all things cheesy and new
    My bae love this is for you

    You brighten my smile with every coffee cup
    Except when you leave the toilet up
    You are just about my one in a million
    My everyday heartbeat

    When I am feeling down and low
    You know just how to pick me up

    A few extra blocks of lindt chocolate
    Right in my coffee cup

    So it’s Valentines day and I just wanted to say
    That you my darling love are my Valentines Day

  27. If roses were red and violets could be blue,
    It will take us away to a place just for two.
    You will see my true colors and all that I felt.
    I will see that you could love me and nobody else.
    We will build ourselves a fortress where we’d run and play.
    You will be mine and I will be yours till our dying day.
    Then I wake and realize you were never here.
    The pain, the hurt is felt daily
    It’s all just my thoughts, my dreams, my hopes.
    Divorce is never easy.

  28. Roses are Red, Violets are Blue….
    When only the sweetest chocolate will do
    I will bring you some Lindt, to charm you all day
    and tell you I love you in the tastiest way
    Your kisses melt on my lips like a Lindor ball
    the stars frame your hair as the night begins to fall
    Hours pass by – in a moment, it seems,
    As my angel and Lindt fill my chocolate dreams.

    *************A Poem for Ronel: By Darren Marais******************

  29. She Loved me:

    She loved me -when I was down and beaten
    She loved me- when i was lost and mistreaten
    she loved me regardless of all of my flaws
    My heart was locked-but she tore down the doors
    She shone her light-I was in a dark place
    and when I looked up to see her face
    She smiled and reached down with her soft little hand
    She picked me up and helped to stand
    and in the darkness- a light had grown
    as she showed me a love I had never before known
    and suddenly the man that she once knew
    was healed and strong and loving and new!
    and our paths became one on this journey of life
    as we became a team-a husband and wife

  30. A million stars up in the sky,
    One shines brighter I can’t deny,
    A love so precious a love so true,
    I Love You, I always do!

  31. Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    You in my head
    In all I do

    Hugs are good
    Only from you
    Never thought I would
    Feel like I do

    Love is tough
    Love is easy
    I’m sorry this stuff
    Is so cheesy

  32. From happy times
    And Giddy times
    And Steamy times
    We were drawn together

    Through tough times
    Through hard times
    We’ve stuck together

    Our love is the glue that binds us together
    Always and forever, no matter what

  33. You turn my lights out
    Through you I am alive
    Through you I see our future
    You turn my negatives to positives
    I love for what you have been
    I love you for who you are
    i love you for what you are yet to be
    This is love this is us This is where I sleep

  34. Roses are red, violets are blue, I love pizza, how about you?

    I’m really bad at this but I love pizza.

  35. i may not be romantic everyday through out the year , and i may not always say the things that you are most like to hear . But you must surely know by now ,im happy that your mine and that youll always be my life long sweet heart .

  36. September 25th was the best day of my life
    This day was the day that I became your wife.

    Through 17 years of love, sweat and tears
    You are the only one that can soothe my fears

    I loved you then, I love you now and until the day I die
    You are the best of the best, you are my only guy.

  37. Its not all roses for us
    But we never gave up

    Yes even sometimes I want to hit you with a pot.
    Our love flame will never burn out.

    You are our Dad & Husband.
    We have a Bond.

    You are our CEO of our house.
    Although you are scared of a mouse.

    Love you always
    Wished I could show it in many ways.

  38. I love you for your cooking skills, your 6 star course with your alcoholic touch.
    I love you for your washing up gloves, the dishes sit until you are gloved.
    I love you for your cleaning skills, your 5 min start before nature calls.
    But MOST of all, I love you for the finer things – your beautiful laugh, that cheeky smile, my two gorgeous boys and that fast, sharp mind.

  39. Push me to the floor and feed me Lindor,only if I can share the yum with my Valentine chum.
    Life is a bed of roses….and delicious Lindor to share in bed with roses galore!

  40. Roses aren’t always red
    Violets aren’t always blue
    Love is never easy
    but it is when I’m with you
    You make the roses red
    the violets blue
    and all you have to do is be you.

  41. You’re part of my heart, even though you sometimes behave like a fart, you and I can never be apart mainly because I’m the bulls eye for your dart. We fight we play but come what may, I’ll forever be with you because I’m here to stay because I’m your Bae (H)….

  42. My love, you have my heart
    I never want us to part

    There’s no doubt that we’re meant for each other
    And our love is so pure, and like none other

    Since you came into my life, I feel complete
    I am so lucky to have a boyfriend who is so sweet

    You’re all I’ve ever wanted and all I need
    All my expectations you do exceed

    I am incurably in love with you
    I cannot wait for us to say “I do”

    You are my King and my Everything
    You make my heart sing

    I love you ♥
    Oh, and I love Lindt too ♥

  43. #LoveLindorSA Roses are red and so it Lindtor . With chocolate in your hand my heart will belong to you. Nothing sweeter nothing better nothing more romantic than your love. So please please Lindtor be my valentine.

  44. #LoveLindorSA You are my high school sweetheart,
    You are my SuperMan that showed me the Super Powers of Marriage
    You are my SpiderMan that showed me how to untangle the web of parenthood,
    You are my BatMan that showed me how to drive my car ,
    You are my Soulmate that made me believe that love is Everlasting,
    You are My Prince Charming that made me feel like Cinderella,
    You are My Everything and
    I love you with all my heart Jay Francis now and forever more.

  45. You are my soul mate
    You showed me that true love really exist
    You love me wholeheartedly with no conditions
    Each day I spend with you is Valentine’s Day
    I’ll love you till the end

  46. I will choose you
    over and over
    without a pause
    without a doubt
    in a heartbeat
    I will keep choosing you
    my love #LoveLindorSA

  47. When I look into his eyes and see,
    No one else but me,
    When we’re together,
    I wish those moments could last forever,
    And when we’re apart,
    I feel an emptiness within my heart,
    When he touches my face,
    Or holds me in his warm embrace,
    I just love listening to him speak,
    The way he says my name sounds so unique,
    When he lends me his ear,
    My problems seem to disappear,
    And when I’m with him I have nothing to fear,
    Or when our fingers intertwine,
    He just sends shivers down my spine,
    And that’s how I know he’s mine.

  48. My hubby and I sat on Robben Islands pier
    Happily married for plus 20 years
    Recounting the great things the two of us can share
    The birth of our boys for which he was there
    The bumps and bruises that life sends us all
    Made us laugh & cry but together stood tall
    As life trundles on we try hard to stay fit
    Sometimes whilst gyming my knees ache a bit
    As we look back at Cape Town some eight k’s away
    We’ve much to be gratefull for in so many ways
    When we get off our boat we’ll be off for a bite
    And dance cheek to cheek for the rest of the night
    Thirty years ago I got real lucky, no not the lotto

    And I have poured my entire soul into you,
    Right from the very start.
