80 Love Poems for Her Every Man Should Read

  1. I’ve been looking all my life for that special someone

Little I knew you that you were the one

So let’s spend the rest of our lives together

Darling, it’s you and me forever

  1. I planned my whole life living alone

I never thought that love was a reality

But then you popped like an ice cream on a cone

It was then I knew love was meant for you and me

  1. Now that I have you

I don’t bother about the past

I just enjoy my time loving you

For the love we have to last

  1. There is no shortcuts to true love

It’s born and grown in our human hearts

I knew that’s true when I met you, love

You loved me, cared for me and spoiled my heart

So my heart developed a sweet romantic love

For you, only you, my one true love

  1. Falling in love with you was easy

I remember seeing you the first time made me queasy

This might sound to you as cheesy

But I want you to know I’m deeply in love with you baby

  1. Nothing could hurt me far worse

Than finding myself in a curse

Without you in my life’s course

  1. I wish there would be no more pain

And for all the sadness to go down the drain

Because all I want to do my lovely Jane

Is to love you over and over again

  1. Your love has put me on a pedestal

Where my opinions about love turned radical

Because you my honey had taught me

That love’s eternal and sees no boundary

  1. Love is not a single emotion

That keeps your heart in motion

It’s a multitude of feelings

That keeps your heart yearning

  1. I almost given up hope

That one day I’ll learn the real scope

Of a love that makes everybody crazy

And so happy like a yellow daisy

But I thank the Lord God above

For giving me you my love

You’re the one who taught me true love

Thank you for making me feel loved

  1. The internet is a wide community

That brought you from far away to me

I must be very lucky

That you’ve fallen in love with me so easily

  1. When I first had a taste of love

I learned that it’s the strongest power a human can have

It’s a force, a feeling, a gift from above

That lets you fly high in the clouds like a dove

  1. If you love me, tell me

Because I would say the same thing

In case you have not noticed

I’m floating in love with you like a lotus

So darling don’t be afraid

Because your feelings for me will never be betrayed

I love you and that’s for true

Please say you love me too

  1. When you love someone

You never must let time run

Without confessing your love to the one

Who turned your days brighter than the sun

  1. Love me now before it’s too late

Because baby I can no longer wait

To share my love with you forever

And spend the rest our days together

  1. I have many reasons to love you

Your kind, your gorgeous and si true

But of all the reasons that attracted me to you

Can you guess where they all boil down to?

You… just you, the all of you

Because babe, I am deeply in love with you

In my head there’s only you

So baby can you do a favor for me?

Don’t let a day pass by without thinking of me?

  1. I love you and it’s the truest feeling I have ever felt

And since the very first time we met

I knew what I feel for you is special and real

  1. What would you do without me?

Would you miss me?

Spend all your day thinking of me?

And send sweet messages thru text and email to me?

I wish that’s what you’ll do baby

Because that’s what I would do without you undoubtedly

  1. Our first meeting is probably the best moment of my life

I can still remember your hair, your dress and your beautiful smile

I will never forget your face when I said “Hi”

I am so glad I did it that night

  1. They say you’ll never know what you’ve got until it’s gone

But it’s also true that you don’t know what you’ve been missing until at arrives

So darling thank you for coming into my life

You’re the one missing piece I never knew I needed in this lifetime

  1. I’ve waited a thousand years for some like you

Your beauty knows no limit

Your kindness knows no bounds

You’re the only woman my heart beats for

And there’s nothing in this whole damn world

That I wouldn’t do for you, the one I adore

  1. If forever lasts a lifetime

I wish in my forever you’ll be mine

Because a lifetime is nothing

Without you in it

  1. Baby, you take my breath away

When you’re around, I’m always okay

So please be with me always

And let’s love each other until the rest of our days

  1. To my one and only baby

I am in love with you deeply

No matter what happens

I know we’re a match made in heaven

If one day we are set

To spend time apart

On this planet Earth

Because baby whatever happens to me and you

You’re the only one I will always come home to

You fill my heart with gay

You are the stars of my night

You kind heart makes my living worthwhile

So darling, for me, can you walk the aisle

And spend the rest of your whole life

With me and only me, your regular guy?

With you, my courage and confidence flows

You are a gift sent from heaven

That I will cherish forever

My beloved, you are a gem

Let’s spend this lifetime together

Gave some strength to my weakest bone

You have always served as my pillar

So let me thank you my love

For giving me all of the above

I promise I’ll never quit

And for you I will always commit

My endless, undying love

  1. Your smile is the most lovely thing painted on your face

It gives me comfort and happiness when I’m in a lonely place

Even when you’re feeling down

Because you don’t know what it does to me

When I see you feeling lonely

A someone that loves me through and through

To show my undying thanks for you

My sweet, lovely baby?

This tiny sparkling ring

And ask you to marry me in spring

I wish you to know

That you are the only one

If I am not at your sight

And always, always remember

I’ll paint my love for you in all colors

I’d find all hues in the entire galaxy

Just tell you how much you mean to me

  1. Nothing prepared me for

A life that I am yours

But I’m always grateful for

Living next to your door

The day I said “hello”

And you responded with “oh!”

Is the cutest response

I’ve heard from you hon

You’re the prettiest neighbor

I have ever had

You’re such a sweet favor

To my life that was so sad

But I never thought

That you’d be my world

So now that you’re here

I promise you dear

I’ll love you forever

Whenever, wherever, however

  1. I never knew at this age

I’d find someone like you

Your love is my turning page

You changed my heart that’s blue

Into one that brightly shines in many hues

And sparkles with so much love

So baby, let me love you

Until we reached the heavens above

46. It is because of you

Why I was able to

Surrender what I have been

All my life since I was teen

You’re the only being

Who showed me love’s true meaning

And now that I discovered it

There’s no turning back from it

I will love you for eternity

And never let you go away from me

47. There is nothing that could change my love for you

Nobody in this world could ever replace you

You to me are everything honey

I wish there’s never a day that you’re not with me

I’ve always dreamed to someday meet

A strong kind woman with unbelievable wit

But my long search is over

Now that you and me are together

48. When the night is cool

And the skies are blue

I only think of you

When the clouds are grey

And I had a bad day

I wish you were not away

You make me feel brand new

And I hope you knew

My love for you is true

So when you return

I won’t let it burn

I’ll confess my feelings for you

  1. Honey you’re the sun that shines brightly throughout my day

And the gravity that holds me down in every way.

You’re the moon that shimmers throughout my night

And the stars that glimmer oh so bright.

  1. I never really knew you

You were just another friend

But when I got to know you,

I let my heart unbend.

I couldn’t help past memories

that would only make me cry

I had to forget my first love

and give love another try

So I’ve fallen in love with you

and I’ll never let you go

I love you more than anyone

I just had to let you know

And if you ever wonder why

I don’t know what I’ll say

But I’ll never stop loving you

each and every day

I love you now until I die.

For I must love because I love

And life in me is what you give

”Because She Would Ask Me Why I Loved Her” by Christopher Brennan

  1. Love is not love

Which alters when it alteration finds,

That looks on tempests, and is never shaken

my heart

  1. The tree has entered my hands,

The sap has ascended my arms,

The tree has grown in my breast-

Tree you are,

Moss you are,

You are violets with wind above them.

A child – so high – you are,

And all this is folly to the world

Of Cloudless climes and starry skies;

And all that’s best of dark and bright

meet in her aspect and her eyes

I know that love is ash

It is the thing which remains

When the fire is spent

The holy essence of experience

”Who Said That Love Was Fire?” by Patience Worth

  1. I want you to know

one thing

You know how this is:

if I look

at the crystal moon, at the red branch

of the slow autumn at my window,

if I touch

near the fire

the impalpable ash

or the wrinkled body of the log,

everything carries me to you,

as if everything that exists,

aromas, light, metals,

were little boats

that sail

toward those isles of yours that wait for me

“If You Forget Me” by Pablo Neruda

  1. I can write no stately proem

As a prelude to my lay;

From a poet to a poem

I would dare to say

For if of these fallen petals

One to you seem fair,

Love will waft it till it settles

On your hair.

And when wind and winter harden

All the loveless land,

It will whisper of the garden,

You will understand.

“To My Wife – With A Copy Of My Poems” by Oscar Wilde

  1. Let us twain walk aside from the rest;

Now we are together privately, do you discard ceremony,

Come! vouchsafe to me what has yet been vouchsafed to none

Tell me the whole story,

Tell me what you would not tell your brother, wife, husband, or physician

“You” by Walt Whitman

  1. Romance, who loves to nod and sing

With drowsy head and folded wing

Among the green leaves as they shake

Far down within some shadowy lake,

To me a painted paroquet

Hath been—most familiar bird—

Taught me my alphabet to say,

To lisp my very earliest word

While in the wild wood I did lie,

A child—with a most knowing eye

“Romance” by Edgar Allan Poe

  1. O my Luve’s like a red, red rose

That’s newly sprung in June;

O my Luve’s like the melodie

That’s sweetly played in tune.

As fair art thou, my bonnie lass,

So deep in luve am I;

And I will luve thee still, my dear,

Till a’ the seas gang dry:

“A Red, Red Rose” by Robert Burns

I caress you a thousand of the most amorous caresses take possession of me

  1. Blessed are the lovers…


they cling to one another

like small frightened animals who tremble, knowing they will die….

We shall grow old together to the end….

“The Most Ancient Names of Fire,” by Roberto Sosa

Your voice more gentle than the whispering breeze

My soul basks in the tender glow of yours

And finds comfort there

“Night Flame” by Catherine Hart

  1. My love, like a vine, clasps its tendrils about thee,

And desolate, lone, were my being without thee;

Oh, we’ll walk hand in hand through life’s changeable weather,

And when death’s summons come, we’ll obey it together!

“A Lullaby” by Elizabeth Anne Chase Akers Allen

  1. I love you for what you are,

but I love you yet more for what you are going to be

I love you not so much for your realities as for your ideals

I pray for your desires that they may be great, rather than for your satisfactions

which may be so hazardously little

A satisfied flower is one whose petals are about to fall

The most beautiful rose is one hardly more than a bud

wherein the pangs and ecstasies of desire

are working for a larger and finer growth

Not always shall you be what you are now

You are going forward toward something great

I am on the way with you and therefore I love you.

“I love you” by Carl Sandberg

  1. Do you remember still the falling stars

that like swift horses through the heavens raced

and suddenly leaped across the hurdles

of our wishes—do you recall? And we

did make so many! For there were countless numbers

of stars: each time we looked above we were

astounded by the swiftness of their daring play,

while in our hearts we felt safe and secure

watching these brilliant bodies disintegrate,

knowing somehow we had survived their fall

“Falling Stars” by Rainer Maria Rilke

  1. Love is a place

And through this place of

love move

with brightness of peace

all places

yes is a world

And in this world of

yes live

skilfully curled

all worlds

“Love is a Place” by E.E. Cummings

  1. When I cannot look at your face

I look at your feet

Your feet of arched bone,

your hard little feet

I know that they support you,

and that your sweet weight

rises upon them

Your waist and your breasts,

the doubled purple

of your nipples,

the sockets of your eyes

that have just flown away,

your wide fruit mouth,

your red tresses,

my little tower

But I love your feet

only because they walked

upon the earth and upon

the wind and upon the waters,

until they found me

“Your Feet” by Pablo Neruda

  1. Come live with me and be my love,

And we will all the pleasures prove,

That Valleys, groves, hills, and fields,

Woods, or steepy mountain yields

And we will sit upon the Rocks,

Seeing the Shepherds feed their flocks,

By shallow Rivers to whose falls

Melodious birds sing Madrigals

“The Passionate Shepherd to His Love” by Christopher Marlowe

  1. Know that my beloved in hidden from everyone

Know that she is beyond the belief of all beliefs

Know that in my heart she is as clear as the moon

Know that she is the life in my body and in my soul”

“My Beloved” by Rumi

  1. My love, like a vine, clasps its tendrils about thee

And desolate, lone, were my being without thee

Oh, we’ll walk hand in hand through life’s changeable weather

And when death’s summons come, we’ll obey it together!

“Florence Percy”

  1. The grey sea and the long black land;

And the yellow half-moon large and low;

And the startled little waves that leap

In fiery ringlets from their sleep,

As I gain the cove with pushing prow,

And quench its speed i’ the slushy sand.

Then a mile of warm sea-scented beach;

Three fields to cross till a farm appears;

A tap at the pane, the quick sharp scratch

And blue spurt of a lighted match,

And a voice less loud, thro’ its joys and fears,

Than the two hearts beating each to each!

“Meeting at Night” by Robert Browning

  1. See! the mountains kiss high heaven

And the waves clasp one another

No sister flower would be forgiven

If it disdained its brother

And the sunlight clasps the earth

And the moonbeams kiss the sea

What are all these kissings worth

If thou kiss not me

“Percy Bysshe Shelley”

  1. But our love it was stronger by far than the love

Of those who were older than we

Of many far wiser than we

And neither the angels in Heaven above

Nor the demons down under the sea

Can ever dissever my soul from the soul

Of the beautiful Annabel Lee

“Annabel Lee” by Edgar Allan Poe

  1. Tonight I can write the saddest lines.

To think that I do not have her. To feel that I have lost her

To hear the immense night, still more immense without her.

And the verse falls to the soul like dew to the pasture

“Poema XX: Puedo escribir los versos más tristes esta noche” by Pablo Neruda

  1. At last, when all the summer shine

That warmed life’s early hours is past,

Your loving fingers seek for mine

And hold them close—at last—at last!

Not oft the robin comes to build

Its nest upon the leafless bough

By autumn robbed, by winter chilled,—

But you, dear heart, you love me now

“At Last” by Elizabeth Akers Allen

  1. I desire you

more than food

and drink

My body

my senses

my mind

hunger for your taste

I can sense your presence

in my heart

although you belong

to all the world

I wait

with silent passion

for one gesture

one glance

from you”

“The Love Poems of Rumi” by Rumi

  1. Come to me in my dreams, and then

By day I shall be well again.

For then the night will more than pay

The hopeless longing of the day.

Come, as thou cam’st a thousand times,

A messenger from radiant climes,

And smile on thy new world, and be

As kind to others as to me.

Or, as thou never cam’st in sooth,

Come now, and let me dream it truth.

And part my hair, and kiss my brow,

And say My love! why sufferest thou?

“Longing” by Matthew Arnold


In poetry, perhaps the best way to generate feelings into your audience is to stay original and genuine. You need to capture your real feelings in words that could communicate whatever is inside your heart.

Having said that, writing a poem is, indeed, tricky. But you really don’t need to come up with the best poem ever, right?

As long as you’re masterpiece uses concrete words to show how you feel, your girl should be able to appreciate and fall in love with it!

So don’t be afraid, get a notepad and a pen. Start writing today and you might be able to finish it the next day!
