Enjoy this beautiful selection of short romantic love poems. Lose yourself in these emotional words of love.


Somewhere there waits in this world of ours
For one lone soul another lonely soul
Each choosing each through all the weary hours
And meeting strangely at one sudden goal.
The blend they, like green leaves with golden flowers,
Into one beautiful and perfect whole;
And life's long night is ended, and the way
Lies open onward to eternal day.

~ Edwin Arnold

A Red Red Rose

O' my Love's like a red, red rose,
That's newly sprung in June;
O my love's like the melodie
That's sweetly play'd in tune.--

As fair art thou, my bonie lass,
So deep in love am I;
And I will love thee still, my Dear,
Till a' the seas gang dry.--

Till a' the seas gang dry, my Dear,
And the rocks melt wi' the sun:
I will love thee still, my Dear,
While the sands o' life shall run.--

And fare thee weel, my only Love!
And fare thee weel, a while!
And I will come again, my Love,
Tho' it were ten thousand mile!

~ Robert Burns

Shall I Compare Thee, (Sonnet XVIII)

Thou are more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And Summer's lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm'd;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature's changing course untrimm'd:

But thy eternal Summer shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st;
Nor shall Death brag thou wander'st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st:
So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

~William Shakespeare

A White Rose

The red rose whispers of passion,
And the white rose breathes of love;
O the red rose is a falcon,
And the white rose is a dove.

But I send you a cream-white rosebud
With a flush on its petal tips;
For the love that is purest and sweetest
Has a kiss of desire on the lips.

~ John Boyle O'Reilly (1844-1890)

All Because of You

I awake each day with a smile
And greet it with a laugh;
The world is a treasure to me
Because of you.

Every time I think of something sad,
I replace the thought- with you!
My mind is instantly changed
And my heart is filled with gladness.

Every breath I take is meant for you,
I live this life surrounded in joy
And I bathe in the promise of your love,
My soul belongs to you.

Each time I see something beautiful
I want to take it and bring it to you;
My life has so much meaning now
All because of you.

~ Kate Reneigh Woodruff

My Everything

I want be the wind that fills your sail
Be the hand that lifts your veil
Be the moon that moves your tides
The sun coming up in your eyes
Be the spark that lights you up
All that you've been dreaming of
And more ... so much more
I want be your everything!

When you wake up
I'll be the first thing you see.
I'll cherish your words
I'll finish your thoughts
I'll be your compass when you get lost.

Without You

I can't think of a better way,
To spend my life,
To be with you everyday.

I think about you every minute,
I hope you think about me,
There is no other place,
I would rather be.

Baby you make life simple,
You make it easy,
I love you babe,
Don't ever leave me.

I dont want to be alone,
I couldnt survive without you,
I think I'd die out on my own,
I don't know what I'd do.

Love's Buring Desire

Love is a burning desire,
That makes your heart light on fire,
Love is being with you,
Someone saying I love you too,
Love is your tender kiss,
Something you don't want to miss,
Love is you and me,
And that is all I see.

Love Me, Trust Me, Need Me

Love me without fear
Trust me without questioning
Need me without demanding
Want me without restrictions
Accept me without change
Desire me without inhibitions
For a love so free....
Will never fly away.

~Dick Sutphen

I Can't Stop

I can't stop thinking about you
Wondering if you think of me, too
I can't stop thinking of your lips
Oh! How soft they are between mine
I can't stop imagining your hands
As they caress my every hair and limb
I can't stop thinking of your face
How I love it and it thanks me in return.
I can't stop thinking of your voice,
As sexy as the body it possesses.
I can't stop feeling your touch inside me.
My temperature rises and emotions explode.
I can't stop thinking of how much I want you,
how I need you
No matter what you do,
I can't stop thinking about you.

~Stacy Williams
