Short Love Poems

Posted by Andrew on October 22, 2019

Poetry is the language that was designed to express feelings. Humans are capable of so many feelings, too.  From happiness, to anger, or from sadness to hopefulness, we all process the events in our lives with a plethora of emotions.

And then, of course, there’s love. Ah, love. Poets since the beginning of time have been trying to capture the emotions love can bring. It can be a difficult emotion, born of the violent thrashing of a storm, or it can be mellow and comfortable, like a calm pond. Love can be compared to the ocean– a vast, moody view that changes like the weather, so can our love be affected or even attacked by other people’s words and actions. Fortunately, our dearest ones usually do not hurt us, and we learn to communicate with them, using a language of love.

For many of us, it’s heartwarming to remind each other of our love by sending short- but sweet- reminders here and there.  Whether you text or email your loved one during a hectic day, or need a quick ditty to jot on the card of a floral delivery, just the right words often make these expressions so much more meaningful.  Here we have a big gallery of tiny love poems, for you and your soulmate to enjoy when the time is right.

In idle dreams of long ago,
I imagined my true love;
A perfect match, a soulmate,
An angel from above.

You have come into my life
And it changed with a blink of an eye
You have blown the roof
To let me see the blue sky.
I can praise you for a whole day
But my love for you so great
That I need many days to say.

********

It is hard to describe the feeling of love
The feeling of your heart skipping a beat
Or of flying like that of a dove
These are the feelings I have when we meet.

********

You gave light to my soul
You helped me to be whole
I have felt love for you before
And it will be more and more,
You are mine, my dear
You are the angel from above
Who taught me how to love.
Please, forever keep me near.

Until I finally met you.

********

I often think about,
How much our love has grown.
Your smiles, hugs and goofy looks,
You make me happier than I have ever known.

I can only hope for this loving grace,
To continue and never end.
You are more than I have ever deserved,
I cannot even comprehend.
I love you more than I probably share,
May you understand and see this truth.
I always have and always will,
Now in my prime, started in my youth.

********

You look at me as if I’m the only girl around.
You make me feel important and never let me down.
You’ve shown me how to live,
How to smile, what to say.
You’ve shown me what it’s worth
To love someone each and every day.

So this poem goes out to you
For everything you’ve done,
And I hope now you understand
That baby, you’re the one

From where the stream of Chandra flows down
The gorgeous heights of the Himalayas.

And love comes in at the eye;

Before we grow old and die.
