Ten Poems About Love for the Romantic Within

Love with Roses Only
Touched by an Angel by Maya Angelou

We, unaccustomed to courage 
exiles from delight
live coiled in shells of loneliness
until love leaves its high holy temple
and comes into our sight
to liberate us into life.

Love arrives
and in its train come ecstasies
old memories of pleasure
ancient histories of pain.

Yet if we are bold,
love strikes away the chains of fear
from our souls.

We are weaned from our timidity
In the flush of love's light
we dare be brave


And suddenly we see
that love costs all we are
and will ever be.

Yet it is only love
which sets us free.

Longing by Matthew Arnold

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?

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.

Love with Roses Only  

The Letter by Bo Burnham

I wrote you a letter,
and then another letter,
and another, and another,
until I wrote you a word.

So I wrote you a word,
and then another word,

and another, and another,
until I wrote you a sentence.

So I wrote you a sentence,
and then another sentence,

and another, and another,
until I wrote you a letter.

I hope it finds you as I found you.

Yours truly,
Yours, truly.

Each Year I Fall In Love Again With You by Joanna Fuchs

When I first met you all those years ago,
I fell in love so fast, I knew right then,
You were the one and only one for me;
I'd never have to look for love again.

Each anniversary finds us happier;
You are my light--my moon, my star, my sun.
You show me what real love is all about,
You fill my life with pleasure, joy and fun.

As time goes by, our love grows stronger still.
You're the most amazing (man/woman) I ever knew.
I prize our anniversaries because
Each year I fall in love again with you.

Wild Nights! Wild Nights! by Emily Dickinson

Were I with thee,
Wild nights should be
Our luxury!
Futile the winds
To a heart in port,
Done with the compass,
Done with the chart.
Rowing in Eden!
Ah! the sea!
Might I but moor
To-night in thee!

Bright Star by John Keats

Not in lone splendour hung aloft the night
And watching, with eternal lids apart,
Like nature’s patient, sleepless Eremite,
The moving waters at their priest like task
Of pure ablution round earth’s human shores,
Or gazing on the new soft-fallen mask
Of snow upon the mountains and the moors–
No–yet still stedfast, still unchangeable,
Pillow’d upon my fair love’s ripening breast,
To feel for ever its soft fall and swell,
Awake for ever in a sweet unrest,
Still, still to hear her tender-taken breath,
And so live ever–or else swoon to death.

Dreams by William Scott

I gaze at your pictures
As I go to sleep,
I can hear your voice
It sounds oh so sweet
I then close my eyes
And sleep the night through,
The dreams that I have
Are of me and you.

I awake in the morning
I know this is real,
This dream that I'm in
It feels so surreal.
I whisper your name
And say I love you,
I tell you my dreams
They're of me and you.

You look in my eyes
And hold me so tight,
The fears that we have
Will soon have respite.
I cannot contain
My feelings for you,
My heart is set free
It belongs only to you.

On The Balcony by D.H. Lawrence

In front of the sombre mountains,
a faint, lost ribbon of rainbow
And between us and it, the thunder;
And down below in the green wheat,
the labourers stand like dark stumps,
still in the green wheat.

You are near to me, and naked feet
In their sandals, and through the
scent of the balcony’s naked timber
I distinguish the scent of your hair:
so now the limber
Lightning falls from heaven.

Adown the pale-green glacier river floats
A dark boat through the gloom—
and whither? The thunder roars
But still we have each other!

The naked lightnings in the heavens dither
And disappear—
what have we but each other?
The boat has gone.

Cozy night in with loved ones

All Over Again by Cheryl Hornbeck

Last night I fell in love with you
All over again,
More deeply in love,
Than ever before.
No one has ever expressed their love for me
With such beautiful and kind words. 

Last night I fell in love with you
All over again,
With such stronger faith
Than ever before.
Knowing that you will always be there for me
When dark shadows enter my life. 

Last night I fell in love with you
All over again
With a stronger friendship
Than ever before
Whenever I need a tender shoulder to cry on
I know you will wipe away the tears. 

Last night I feel in love with you
All over again
With more respect
Than ever before
I look up to you and admire your strength
In turn you have strengthen me.

Last night I fell in love with you
All over again
With such care
Than ever before
Now I truly believe how much you care for me
You have given me life.

Last night I fell in love with you
All over again
With more happiness
Than ever before
You have brought back to me smiles and laughter
Through your loving eyes. 

Last night I fell in love with you
All over again
With more love
Than ever before
For the first time in a long time
I have really felt love.

Us Two by A.A Milne

Wherever I am, there's always Pooh,
There's always Pooh and Me.
Whatever I do, he wants to do,
"Where are you going today?" says Pooh:
"Well, that's very odd 'cos I was too.
Let's go together," says Pooh, says he.
"Let's go together," says Pooh.
So wherever I am, there's always Pooh,
There's always Pooh and Me.
"What would I do?" I said to Pooh,
"If it wasn't for you," and Pooh said: "True,
It isn't much fun for One, but Two,
Can stick together, says Pooh, says he. "That's how it is," says Pooh.
