    Of cloudless climes and starry skies;

    Meet in her aspect and her eyes.
  • I am yours.
    I am yours as the stars
    Belong to the sky
    And I am yours as
    The rivers belong
    To the sea.

    Belong to your eyes
    And I am yours
    As your lungs belong
    To the pattern in which
    You breath.
  • How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
    I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
    My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
    For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.

    And whisper to their souls to go,
    Whilst some of their sad friends do say
    The breath goes now, and some say, No:
    So let us melt, and make no noise,
    No tear-floods, nor sigh-tempests move;
    ‘Twere profanation of our joys
    To tell the laity our love.
  • Hey, rose, just born
    Twin to a thorn;
    Was’t so with you, O Love and Scorn?
    Sweet eyes that smiled,
    Now wet and wild:
    O Eye and Tear- mother and child.
    Well: Love and Pain
    Be kinfolks twain;
    Yet would, Oh would I could Love again.

The Best Love Poems of All Time

Any words about falling in love are priceless, but the truth is that some of them describe this wonderful feeling better. These perfect poems by anonymous and famous authors are well-known for a reason- they touch people’s hearts deeply.

  • How can I, that girl standing there,
    My attention fix
    On Roman or on Russian
    Or on Spanish politics?
    Yet here’s a travelled man that knows
    What he talks about,
    And there’s a politician
    That has read and thought,
    And maybe what they say is true
    Or war and war’s alarms,
    But O that I were young again
    And held her in my arms?
  • You glow in my heart
    Like the flames of uncounted candles.
    But when I go to warm my hands,
    My clumsiness overturns the light
    And then I stumble
    Against the tables and chairs.
  • You were born together, and
    Together you shall be forever more.
    You shall be together when
    The white wings of death
    Scatter your days.
  • Only our love hath no decay;
    This, no tomorrow hath, nor yesterday,
    Running it never runs from us away,
    But truly keeps his first, last, everlasting day.
  • 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.
    You are going forward toward something great.
    I am on the way with you,
    And therefore I love you.

Poetry About Love for the One You Love

    With each passing day
    I love you a lot
    From my every thought!

    Like a million suns.

    The way you make me feel
    It’s so unreal
    It’s like a thrill
    Only God knows how you make me feel.

What is Love Poem

What is love? Paradoxically, humanity hasn’t found the answer to this question yet. Of course, there are a lot of definitions of love, but this is exactly the case when dictionaries are powerless. There is no single phrase that could describe it, but there are poems that can help us understand how deep love really is.

  • To love is to share life together,
    To build special plans just for two,
    To work side by side,
    And then smile with pride,
    As one by one, dreams all come true.
  • What is love? My mind did say,
    A caring touch?
    A gentle way?
    It’s both of these, but so much more,
    Numerous attributes, to explore.
    What is love? I searched my soul,
    A loving glance?
    A hand to hold?
    It is these things, but just one part,
    Of the beauty that lies within the heart.
  • Who said that love was fire?
    I know that love is ash.
    It is the thing which remains
    When the fire is spent.
    The holy essence of experience.
  • Love is not love
    Which alters when it alteration finds,
    Or bends with the remover to remove:
    O no; it is an ever-fixed mark,
    That looks on tempests, and is never shaken.
  • What is love, but an emotion,
    So strong and so pure,
    That nurtured and shared with another
    All tests it will endure?
    What is love, but a force
    To bring the mighty low,
    With the strength to shame the mountains
    And halt time’s ceaseless flow?
    So I’ll tell it on the mountaintops,
    In all places high and low,
    That love for you is my reason to be,
    And will never break or bow.

Greatest Love Poems by Famous Poets

  • I hoped that he would love me,
    And he has kissed my mouth,
    But I am like a stricken bird
    That cannot reach the south.
    For though I know he loves me,
    Tonight my heart is sad;
    His kiss was not so wonderful
    As all the dreams I had.
  • Would love to say
    that you
    make me
    weak in the knees,
    to be quite upfront,
    and completely
    make my body forget
    it has knees
    at all.
  • We loved
    With a love
    That was more
    Than love
  • When you came, you were like red wine and honey,
    And the taste of you burnt my mouth with its sweetness.
    Now you are like morning bread,  smooth and pleasant.
    I hardly taste you at all for I know your savour,
    But I am completely nourished.
  • Love is anterior to life,
    Posterior to death,
    Initial of creation,
    And the exponent of breath.

Short Poems about Being in Love

There are a lot of beautiful, inspirational, and meaningful poems by the famous authors. Most of them are long, and that’s easy to understand: love is a feeling that can be hardly described in a few words. Nevertheless, there are short poems that touch our hearts and explain the nature of love in a few lines. In our opinion, this is a special kind of art.

  • No mountain, nor sea
    No thing of this world
    Could keep us apart,
    Because this is not
    My world…
    You are.
  • I wanna be
    Wrapped in your arms
    Skin against skin
    Hands intertwined
    Let me
    Fall asleep
    To the sound
    Of your heartbeat
  • I can’t even hold your hand,
    But I love you with a love
    Than no one can understand.
  • The rain falling
    Reminds me of you,
    Because it is falling hard
    And I am too.
  • I keep myself busy
    With the things I do
    But everytime I pause
    I still think of you.

Good long love poems

Love is different. It can bring a lot of joy, make life meaningful and bright or break your heart. In fact, even sadness can’t be considered a purely negative emotion: light can’t exist without darkness, and sometimes suffering are necessary to understand how happy you are when you finally find your person. Some of these long poems tell us about pain, some describe the nature of love, some reflect the feelings of two people who have finally found each other, and all of them are beautiful.

  • Don’t go far off, not even for a day, because —
    because — I don’t know how to say it: a day is long
    and I will be waiting for you, as in an empty station
    when the trains are parked off somewhere else, asleep.
    Oh, may your silhouette never dissolve on the beach;
    may your eyelids never flutter into the empty distance.
    Don’t leave me for a second, my dearest,
    because in that moment you’ll have gone so far
    I’ll wander mazily over all the earth, asking,
    Will you come back? Will you leave me here, dying?
  • Love can’t be described.
    It has no shape, it has no form.
    Love is not an object,
    Love does not conform.
    Love enters our lives
    The moment we are born.
    From the cradle to the grave,
    Love’s in everyone.
    Love burns like a candle
    That sometimes flickers but never dies.
    Love may be invisible,
    Although it’s right before your eyes,
    Love can leave you empty,
    Love can make you whole.
    Love can make or break you,
    Love is in your soul.
  • I loved you first: but afterwards your love
    Outsoaring mine, sang such a loftier song
    As drowned the friendly cooings of my dove.
    Which owes the other most? my love was long,
    And yours one moment seemed to wax more strong;
    I loved and guessed at you, you construed me
    And loved me for what might or might not be –
    Nay, weights and measures do us both a wrong.
    For verily love knows not ‘mine’ or ‘thine;’
    With separate ‘I’ and ‘thou’ free love has done,
    For one is both and both are one in love:
    Rich love knows nought of ‘thine that is not mine;’
    Both have the strength and both the length thereof,
    Both of us, of the love which makes us one.
  • I do not love you except because I love you;
    I go from loving to not loving you,
    From waiting to not waiting for you
    My heart moves from cold to fire.
    I love you only because it’s you the one I love;
    I hate you deeply, and hating you
    Bend to you, and the measure of my changing love for you
    Is that I do not see you but love you blindly.
    In this part of the story I am the one who
    Dies, the only one, and I will die of love because I love you,
    Because I love you, Love, in fire and blood.
  • You brought me sunshine
    when I only saw rain.
    You brought me laughter
    when I only felt pain.
    Romantics at heart?
    Love at first sight?
    Have I known you before?
    God! This feels so right!
    Have I met you before?
    Another time, another place?
    If it’s only one night,
    will it bring us disgrace?
    What are these feelings?
    Must they be temporary?
    Just to make you happy
    seems so necessary.

Cute poems about finding love

Some of us are very lucky: they find their love without effort, without the pain of breakups and disappointments. Some of us meet different people before finding a person who can make them really happy. If you haven’t found your significant other yet, never stop searching. Love is always worth the time and efforts.

  • I find my place
    In between your arms,
    In between your tender kisses
    And soft whispers of ‘It will be alright’,
    In between the warmth of your embrace,
    And the scent of your neck,
    And the fierceness of your touch,
    I find my place lost inside your soul.
  • I spend a lot of time
    Searching for affection in shallow spaces
    But once I let go
    Of trying to shove puzzle pieces
    In places that did not fit,
    Once I let go of all the hate
    I secretly had stored in the
    Gashes that decorate my heart
    I met you.
  • I love you
    Not only for what you are,
    But for what I am
    When I am with you.
    I love you,
    Not only for what
    You have made of yourself,
    But for what
    You are making of me.
    I love you
    For the part of me
    That you bring out.
  • Forgive
    If I stumble and fall
    For I know not how
    To love too well
    I am clumsy
    And my words as I wish
    So let me kiss you instead.
  • With you
    I finally understood
    How love changes everything.
    How it becomes a chemical thing
    That turns everything warm
    And full of hope.
