The Most Beautiful Love Poems

If you liked the falling in love quotes from above, wait until you get a glimpse of these utterly romantic love poems. Absolutely heart-melting.

If Only She Knew

By Kiara Wilson

cheerful young couple laughing inside the bedroom wearing white top

She has her own special way
Of turning around my terrible day.
She makes all the bad things go away
The second that she says hey.

And when I look into her eyes,
I see pure beauty with no disguise.
Just a glance at her makes my heartbeat rise.
I know for a fact that these feelings aren’t lies.

If only she knew
How much my love for her grew,
Maybe, just maybe, we could start something new,
And then I’d never feel blue.

And if beauty were inches, she’d go on for miles.
I’d better catch her before I go out of style.
I’m going to let my heart be my dial
So I can tell her what I’ve been feeling for a while.

My Love

By Megan Hagen

beautiful couple in love hugging at the background of magnificent view of Budapest

How do I describe
My love for you?
How can I explain
That this is true?

Love is a funny thing
We’ll never understand,
But hear this truth ring:
I’m in love with you.

These butterflies,
Shy smiles,
Late nights.
Thoughts are constantly
About you.

I can’t tell you
All the times
This heart beats faster,
Even when you’re out of view.

Always in my thoughts,
Always in my dreams.
A life without you would
Tear me apart at the seams.

It’s you who keeps me up all night
And gets me through the day.
It seems to me that there
Is only one thing left to say?

I’ve said it already,
But to make sure you know it’s true,
I’ll say how I feel:
I’m completely in love with you.

Love’s Coming

By Ella Wheeler Wilcox

love young couple dining indoors holding hands during the day

She had looked for his coming as warriors come,
With the clash of arms and the bugle’s call;
But he came instead with a stealthy tread,
Which she did not hear at all.

She had thought how his armor would blaze in the sun,
As he rode like a prince to claim his bride:
In the sweet dim light of the falling night
She found him at her side.

She had dreamed of how the gaze of his strange, bold eye
Would wake her heart to a sudden glow:
She found in his face the familiar grace
Of a friend, she used to know.

She had dreamed how his coming would stir her soul,
As the ocean is stirred by the wild storm’s strife:
He brought her the balm of a heavenly calm,
And a peace which crowned her life.

From My Heart

By Mrs. Creeves

couple watching the stars in a romantic summer in Dingle, Ireland

A million stars up in the sky.
One shines brighter – I can’t deny.
A love so precious, a love so true,
a love that comes from me to you.
The angels sing when you are near.
Within your arms, I have nothing to fear.
You always know just what to say.
Just talking to you makes my day.
I love you, honey, with all of my heart.
Together forever and never to part.

Your Smile On My Mind

By Luke O. Meyers

I wake up every day with your smile on my mind.
It’s a beautiful sight to behold, so soft and so kind.
My dreams are filled with the thought of me and you.
I awake and smile, for my dreams have come true.
I have you to guide me through my troubles and fears.
I’ll always be here for you through your struggles and tears.
I love you more than my words could ever show.
You mean everything to me; I just want you to know.
I’ll be here for you no matter the dilemma.
You will always be first on my agenda.

How Do I Love Thee?

By Elizabeth Barrett Browning

silhouette of couple kissing against the sunset

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.
I love thee to the level of every day’s
The quietest need, by sun and candlelight.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love with a passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints, I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! and, if God choose,
I shall love thee better after death.

God’s Gift To Me

By Kerry R. DeVore

happy young couple in the sun lying down on the grass cropped

You are my sunshine.
You are my shining star.
Everything I’m not,
You are.

You make me laugh.
You make my heart smile.
Everything you do
Makes life worthwhile.

You give lovingly.
You always have cheered.
Everything you are
I hold dear.

You are so sweet.
You are so very kind.
Everything I cherish,
In you I find.

You are a blessing.
You are an angel I see.
Everything about you
Is God’s gift to me.

I Love You

By Shannon

romantic couple on the road standing with thin trees at the road side

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!

I love you!
