Short Romantic Poems

What better way to profess your love than with a short sweet poem. 

Your love is the melody that soothes my heart,
Each note, a testament of a love that’ll never part.
In this symphony of life, you play the main part,
With every beat, you’re my favorite art.

To you, my special person,
Brighter than the summer’s day,
You are the sweet melody
In my heart’s love song at play.

Together in the middle of the crowd,
Your love makes me feel so proud.
You, my best friend and the perfect match,
Our love story, the world can’t patch.

Beneath the sugared scent of the marigold,
Our love story, in whispers, is told.
A sweet poem of us, under the sun,
Two hearts entwined, forever as one.

From our first day to this hour,
Your love’s my sweetest happy hour.
In love’s tavern, forever a stay,
Cheers to us, darling, come what may.

The magnitude of the force of our love,
Is vaster than the sky above.
Your love is the perfect way,
To fill my heart, to light my day.

For my loving husband, the king of my heart,
You’ve been my everything from the start.
A beautiful poem can’t express,
How much you mean, how much I’m blessed.

Your love is the melody that sings,
Of happiness and the joy it brings.
My first love, my truest friend,
With you, I wish to spend my end.

In you, I found my entire world,
A sweet love story, beautifully unfurled.
To you, my future wife, I pledge,
My love, till we reach time’s edge.

My darling, my love,  you fill my heart,
With sweet joy that never parts,
In your presence, every grief departs,
In your love, my life restarts.

True Love Poems

In the silence of the night, your heartbeat I hear,
A rhythm of love, in every beat so clear.
With you, I have nothing to fear,
Our love story, the universe will revere.

My love for you has no ends of being,
Beyond the reaches of this worldly life,
The magnitude of the force of our love,
Unmeasured by any scientific methods.

In your smile, I found my home,
In our arms, I found my peace,
Your love, in which I found my everything,
Love of my life, my perfect match.

Under the summer’s lease, we lay,
Warmed by the sun, lost in the day,
A love song, soft as a summer’s day,
Our love, a song, in the right place.

You’re my morning sun, my evening star,
No matter where you are,
You’re my compass, my guiding light,
In your love, I take flight.

Love found us in the middle of the crowd,
We had but a little time,
Yet, it was a love profound,
It was, indeed, a thing divine.

Our love is an old song,
Playing on a vintage radio,
The notes, sweet and long,
In harmony, our love flows.

Every glance, every smile,
Makes my heart race a mile,
A love that’s worth every trial,
With you, life is worthwhile.

You are my moon and my sun,
Without you, life’s no fun,
In your love, I am undone,
A love poem, beautifully spun.

In your eyes, I see a spark,
Brighter than the daylight,
In your arms, I feel so right,
Love, a flame, in the dark night.

Funny Short Love Poem

​Humor is another universal language, and these funny words of love are a great way share your feelings.

I tried to write a sonnet, my dear,
But rhymes are harder than they appear.
So I guess I’ll stick to what I know,
Saying “I love you” and “I told you so.”

I love you like a lost sock loves its mate,
Our connection, indeed must be fate.
Just like that sock, oh, where could it be,
Without you, I’m only half of me!

Our love is like a beautiful song,
Except you always get the lyrics wrong.
Your smile is my sunshine, bright and clear,
But your cooking, dear, I truly fear.

Sweeter than honey, yet costs no money.
No manual or guide, no trick in a book,
Yet for your love, everywhere I look.

I love you more than Netflix, my dear,
More than season three of that show, I swear.
Our love is my favorite series to binge,
In the drama of life, you’re the hinge.

I love you even more than my morning coffee,
And that’s saying something, as you can see.
But your love, oh dear, it’s so divine,
More energizing than caffeine, my sunshine!

I love how your eyes twinkle in delight,
When you find the remote after a long fight.
Our love is magical, wild and bright,
Like a rainbow after a rainy night.

Your love’s like a tug of war, so strong,
Pulling me towards you all day long.
I try to resist, to keep my feet,
But your love, darling, is a wonderful defeat.

I love you more than chocolate cake,
Your love is the sweetest thing to partake.
Though calories, darling, you do not pack,
I’m addicted to you, that’s a fact!

More sweet love Poems

In you, my queen, I found my heart’s kingdom,
Your love, my solace, my ultimate freedom.
The entire world fades in your sweet gaze,
Your love, my life’s most beautiful phase.

Love’s currency is not mere worldly gold,
But the vows we made,  the hands we hold.
You are the best thing in my existence,
Your love, my joy, my essence.

Your love surpasses the summer’s lease,
It brings my heart the sweetest peace.
You are my first love, my true delight,
My guiding star in the darkest night.

Love, the purest form of joy,
The sweetest song we employ.
In your love, I’ve found my home,
No more lonely sorrow in which to roam.

Your love is the quiet need of my heart,
It is the canvas of my life’s art.
With each beat, my heart does say,
“You are my love, my life’s way.”

On our first day, fell head over feet,
Every hour with you is oh so sweet.
To us, I raise my glass and say
“Here’s to love, lighting our way.”

Your love shines brighter than the morning sun,
A beacon of hope when the day has just begun.
With every sunrise, a new love song is spun,
In the tapestry of life, our threads are one.

Famous poems

Quoting a famous poem is a lovely romantic gesture.

I miss you even when you
are beside me. 
I dream of your body
even when you are sleeping
in my arms.
The words I love you
could never be enough.

Christopher Poindexter

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.

Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate.
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date. 

William Shakespeare (Sonnet 18)

She was a Phantom of delight
When first she gleamed upon my sight;
A lovely Apparition sent
To be a moment’s ornament

William Wordsworth

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

Christina Rossetti

A thing of beauty is a joy forever:
Its loveliness increases; 
it will never pass into nothingness; 
but still will keep a bower quiet for us, and a sleep full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing.

John Keats

Were all stars to disappear or die, 
I should learn to look at an empty sky
And feel its total dark sublime, 
Though this might take me a little time.

W.H. Auden

The heavens reward thee manifold, I pray.

That when we live no more, we may live ever.

O my Luve is like a red, red rose
That’s newly sprung in June;
O my Luve is like the melody
That’s sweetly played in tune.

There is
That leaning over the precipice 
Of the hopeless fusion of your presence and absence 
I have found the secret 
Of loving you
Always for the first time

To be in love
Is to touch with a lighter hand.
In yourself you stretch, you are well.

by only me is your doing,my darling)

E.E. Cummings

The fountains mingle with the river
And the rivers with the ocean,
The winds of Heaven mix for ever
With a sweet emotion;
Nothing in the world is single;
All things by a law divine
In one spirit meet and mingle.
Why not I with thine?  

Percy Bysshe Shelley

If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,I shall not live in vain.

Emily Dickinson

You and I
Have so much love, 
That it 
Burns like a fire, 
In which we bake a lump of clay
Molded into a figure of you
And a figure of me.

Guan Daosheng
