Poems For Couples

A relationship is a connection between two individuals. When a couple falls in love it has become a loving relationship. The relationship has moved from two people simply in contact with each other to two people who can't get enough of each other. A loving relationship may build slowly like a train coming in the distance until when it gets to you it emits a deafening roar. Or you may be two people totally oblivious to the relationship that is developing when suddenly you are hit with the realization that you have fallen in love. People are complex and love develops in different ways.

  1. 1. A Moment Of Truth

    This poem shares thoughts and feelings of how much a love endures hurts and creates hopes, fears and doubts. We all make mistakes, and nothing is perfect. Love can be within you, even if you don't get to live it day by day.

    Love Forever Poem

    My dear love, I wanted to share
    My thoughts, my feelings and
    What makes me despair.
    I want to share with you
    What makes me happy what makes me feel blue...
    So you can sense that my love is honest and true.

    Every day, not a single minute
    Passes by without you in it.
    Your skin, your voice, your body and your touch.
    All of these moments, I miss them so much.

    You are so present, so deep in my heart,
    And our souls, I just know, will never part,
    But circumstance and distance can be so overwhelming
    They close doors and create doubt and we start blaming.

    There are actions of mine, and I know that for sure,
    That feel so wrong, though my intentions are pure.
    They are painful and impossible to bear,
    And you feel it's all so unfair.

    You can't run from yourself;
    There is no place to hide.
    It just hurts you so deep.
    It hurts your heart and your pride.

    Then I worry that if I continue to stay.
    Will it be wrong and will I be in your way?
    I fear that I am not at all what you need
    And that this truth will make my heart break and bleed.

    Then I sit here and wipe away my tears,
    Wishing you could kiss away my fears.
    If only you knew how much
    I miss and need your embrace and your touch.

    I know I can't hide from my thoughts and my fear,
    And I know at these times I don't seem near,
    But you break down these walls
    With the strength of your love,
    And then I feel blessed
    From God above!

    My love for you runs so deep through my veins
    That I dream of you, in spite of the pain.

  3. 2. Remember When

    Poem about remembering falling in love, sharing a life, and rekindling love.

    Remembering And Rekindling Love

    Remember when we first did meet,
    our hearts rejoiced and skipped a beat.
    Remember our first kiss goodnight,
    the hug we shared that summer's night.

    Remember when we walked the beach
    and all our dreams within our reach.
    Remember how we used to be
    when I had you and you had me.

    Remember when we used to talk,
    when we held hands and took long walks.
    Remember how we spent our days
    in warm sunshine and in the rain.

    Remember when our one desire
    was take a chance and ignite the fire.
    Remember the times that made our hearts melt
    and all of the passion and desire that we felt.

    Remember when you looked at me
    and saw the one you love and need.
    Remember when you reached for me
    and knew that we were meant to be.

    Remember when our love was new.
    Remember the day we both said, "I do."
    Remember the journey we started together.
    Remember our love was always forever.

    Remember the promise we made together,
    to love and to cherish and to care for each other.
    Remember the promise in good times and in bad
    and to make each one happy rather than sad.

    Remember when you held our child
    and rocked the baby when I grew tired.
    Remember the treasured times
    like these when love grew into family.

    Remember when the world was bright,
    when we would laugh and hold on tight.
    Remember when our hearts were broken,
    when times were tough and words unspoken.

    Remember when we grieved our loss
    with parents gone and feeling lost.
    Remember when our love endured
    the pains and heartaches of the world.

    What happened to the life we shared?
    What happened to a love so rare?
    What happened to the kiss goodnight,
    the warm embrace, the love at night?

    Did it all just happen? How do we right the wrong?
    I know that in my heart your arms I do belong.

    Can we live our lives together just like it all began,
    and can we hold and cherish each other and remember our love again?

  5. 3. Trials

    • By Frank Mandarano
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2015

    This is about me and my girl and all the trials we have been through, but yet our love always overcame them. It is a deep, pure love that withstood each trial.

    Overcoming Hardship Makes A Relationship Stronger

    Times have been tough, and things have gone wrong,
    But the deep love we share has been there all along.
    You say why go on, there's nothing that's right,
    But we never give up; we continue to fight.

    There's a light of love that gives us our sight.
    Our hearts may get dark at times, but we know there is light.
    We both have situations not fair,
    But inside we get through them because of something special we share.

    The trials make you aware of the way we feel,
    A love that is not fake but so very real.
    I know at times that it seems like a raw deal,
    But we must get through these trails until we are healed.

    Trials are not easy, and you feel there's no hope.
    There are times when you feel you're at the end of your rope,
    But you must go down deep in the pit of your heart.
    Let it stop your despair and give a new start.

    For true love for each other is a gift some never get,
    So when that trial comes, don't ever forget
    That there is a rare thing we share that had to come from above,
    And those trials will end; what got you through was pure love.

  6. 4. My Darling

    I wrote this poem for a partner of mine who went through a bad time with depression.

    Poem For A Loved One With Depression

    My darling, my girl,
    Why are you so sad?
    Why can't you see that life is not all bad?
    You're my angel.
    Please don't cry,
    I don't understand, so please tell me why?
    Your beautiful face,
    Your fading smile,
    I vow to make you happy for more than just a while.
    You're so precious,
    Why can't you see?
    I beg you to break that chain,
    Then you'll be free.
    The past is gone,
    It's not going to change,
    But the future is yours...
    For you to arrange,
    Live your life,
    Be happy, don't cry.
    I'm here and now those tears can dry.
    I love you, my darling,
    Let go of the sorrow,
    Because I'm here for you....
    Yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

  7. 5. Remember The First

    I wrote this poem for someone who means the entire world to me. Several years ago when I was friendless, depressed, and attempting suicide, he began to write me "secret" admirer notes. That's when I decided to stop. Time went on, and eventually he became my best friend. After even more time we became a couple. Life has been difficult, and some people really don't want us a couple, but I love him more than anything in this world.

    Poem Remembering Progression Of Relationship

    I remember the first time you talked to me,
    I wasn't sure what to do.
    No one ever talked to me.
    This was something different,
    But something good.

    I remember the first note you gave me
    That made my hands shake as I took it from you.
    It made me realize someone cared,
    That I wasn't completely alone,
    And that if I left this world someone would know.

    I remember our first dance together.
    My mind was focused on the wrong guy.
    I should have known it was you.
    All along it was you,
    And I'm glad you were the one to catch me.

    I remember the first time you were sick.
    I watched you carefully as you laid in my lap,
    All along afraid you would go,
    So small and warm it was then I knew I wanted to keep you.

    I remember the first time I felt jealousy,
    The feeling was foreign, something new,
    A blinding anger that made no sense.
    I wanted it gone and the other girl too.
    All along I knew I was better for you.
    I tried turning my anger by ridding myself of you.
    The attempts were less than half hearted,
    Even then you were the best thing I had.

    The first humiliation and first time you held my hand
    I was nervous, ashamed and wondering how much I really meant to you,
    But then that simple gesture stopped my shaking, made me smile through fear.
    You could make anything better.

    I remember the first time I started to love you.
    It was another new feeling, but it came so naturally.
    You helped me through everything; you were always there.
    I knew it was right, I knew you were mine.

    I remember the first time I kissed you,
    Sitting quietly at night on the porch.
    The world seemed to stand still just for us.
    I was nervous again, but in a much better way.
    I had butterflies for days.

    Remember the first time I started to trust you.
    It was the strangest feeling you had yet to give.
    I told you my secrets, my past and my fears.
    You never left me like I thought you would.
    You will stand by me through it all.

    Do you remember the first time I listened to your heart?
    I let my head lay on your chest, my hand lay gently on your face.
    Time stood still above the world and we watched it all, just me and you.
    Listening to yours set my own at ease.

    I remember the first time I felt safe.
    Curled up right in your lap
    You promised to never hit me, to never try and hurt me.
    You don't know what that meant to me,
    It made me love you even more.
    It is such a beautiful and amazing thing to know,
    That you'll never hurt me.

    Do you remember the first time I believed you?
    You held me in your arms as we danced across the floor
    You painted me a picture of forever,
    I listened in astonishment because somehow, suddenly I knew it was true.

    Remember all the firsts and the lasts.
    I know we will have more if you spend forever with me.
    I'll do anything to keep you, I'll never let you go.
    You are the only one and you'll always be.
    I will love you forever.

  8. 6. A Love Almost Lost

    • By Adam R. Scarberry
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2017

    The night I met my wife, I took her for a ride on a four wheeler. When she got on the back I told her to hold on, but she only grabbed my shirt. So I gave it "full throttle" to make her grab ahold of me tighter. We fell in love fast and after ten years started drifting apart. I thought I no longer loved her until one night I heard the song from Travis Tritt, "Anymore," and I remembered all the good. Since then we both had looked back on our life together and realized we were meant to be together.

    Poem About Almost Getting Divorced

    She pulled up the drive, and as she got out,
    I said to myself, "There is no doubt,
    The most beautiful thing I've seen in my life.
    This woman before me will be my wife."

    Campfire stories and fun four wheeling,
    The loose grip on my shirt feeling.
    "You better hold on with all of your might.
    Our ride begins, starting tonight."

    Wrapping her arms tight around my waist
    After full throttle she got her first taste.
    I promised to love her till the day that I die.
    I put a ring on her finger with no wonder why.

    Our love grew stronger and her heart I won,
    So she blessed my world and gave me a son.
    After many years had come and gone
    Something had happened, something went wrong.

    Why did we let things get so tough?
    Why were our words so harsh and rough?
    When she left that night, I died inside.
    My anger built up and fueled my pride.

    I thought it was over and wanted it so.
    I thought it was time to let her go.
    The lyrics of Tritt echoed as I hit the floor,
    "I'm tired of pretending I don't love you anymore."

    The tears flowing like a hurricane rain,
    The heart I have, feeling so much pain.
    I let "the one" walk out of my life,
    The one I was once proud to call my wife.

    Oh, what I would give to feel her touch,
    Hold her in my arms and kiss her so much.
    Make love to her like it was my last.
    If only we could let go of the past.

    Moving forward I will make it right.
    I will not give up the hardest fight
    To set out and accomplish our new found goals,
    To defeat the demons within our souls.

    We will overcome our flaws and our fears,
    Even if it means shedding more tears.
    My life without her I now have seen.
    An empty throne beside me that belongs to my Queen.

    Poem About The Ups And Downs Of Relationships

    I know you're there
    but my world is so bare.
    Nothing is standing in your way,
    I'm hoping you can make it one more day.

    Our relationship has grown so strong,
    where could we have went so wrong.
    You were there when I needed you,
    Now I'm here for you to need me too.

    You always hear about devastating heartbreaks. Although it may have never happened to you personally, a lot of teenagers go through a heartbreak. This is to the people who have heard all these stories and then never loved because of that.

    Poem About Being Afraid To Love Again

    Afraid to love
    Afraid to hold
    All the stories untold
    Why am I afraid
    Of loving
    Afraid of being broken
    It's so easy to take my heart and throw it away
    I will stay silent
    The only sound you will hear
    Is the shatter of my tear
    The dropping of my heart
    Like a display of art
    So beautiful
    Afraid to love
    Afraid to hold
    All these stories, I've never told

    Thank God for our memories for we are so very blessed.

    Memories Of Past Love

    While walking today as I normally do
    I turned around and your face came into view.

    My heart beating fast just took my breath away
    totally speechless with nothing to say.

    I remembered things that were spoken the day we said goodbye
    and how bad I felt when I saw you cry.

    Just then someone took you by the hand
    it seemed that you were happy and life has treated you grand.

    So with one more glance at your beautiful face
    I knew that someone else had taken my place.

    So memories of you will in my heart forever stay
    and I am so thankful I saw you again today.

  12. 10. Communication

    • By Amy
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2008

    Communication is key to a successful relationship.

    Communicating Is Key To A Successful Relationship

    Communication takes practice,
    it's never perfect.
    Sometimes not patient,
    sometimes not kind,
    but you have to say
    what's on your mind.

    Lend an ear,
    listen, not just hear,
    to the ones
    you love so dear.

    Communication is not
    a one-way street.
    It takes two
    to concur this feat.

    Communication is hard, you see,
    but in the end, it is key
    to that great relationship
    we all want and need.

    Open your heart,
    say what's on your mind.
    When you are partners for life,
    there's nothing to hide.

  13. 11. The Two Of Us

    What has become of the love of our youth?

    What Happened To Our Marriage?

    I wish I knew what has become of the two of us
    We used to talk, now I can't speak anymore
    I'm told I speak way too loud
    Nothing I have to say ever comes out right

    I wish I knew what has become of the two of us
    We used to have fun
    Now we can't stand to be around one another
    All we ever seem to do is fight

    I wish I knew what has become of the two of us
    We used to laugh
    Now all I want to do is cry
    You no longer hold me in your arms at night

    I wish I knew what has become of the two of us
    We spoke of the future quite often
    Now it just seems bleak and blind
    We no longer have the sunshine that is so bright

    I wish I knew what has become of the two of us
    We don't seem to see eye to eye
    It feels like we move only mechanically
    Doesn't look like there's any hope in sight

    I wish I knew what has become of the two of us
    Nothing seems the same at all
    Have we gotten too old to love one another
    Has our marriage lost its delight?

  14. 12. Enough Hurting Those Who Love You

    • By Erin
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2011

    This poem is about a person that is burning bridges and hurting the ones that love them. I think it can apply to family, friends, and relationships.

    Wondering why you have so much hate
    Before you see it will be too late
    Trying to accept who you are
    Just seems far too far

    All the pain that you have created
    Just sits within you with so much hatred
    Hoping you will come to see
    What everyone else seems to believe

    All I want is for you to realize
    You are burning bridges with the one who tries
    Open your heart and let me in
    Before I just give up let it end

    It will be years to fix these issues
    I just hope by then I can still trust you
    How much more do you think I can take
    You won't see until it's too late

  15. 13. Love's Journey

    • By Angie Mccrackin
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2015

    This poem is about a love I had experienced, but it would always only get so far before both of our insecurities would cause us to fight. We would go our separate ways, but our love never faded and we always made our way back to each other.

    Poem About The Past Interfering With Present Relationships

    When my eyes are locked with his
    My lips are longing for his kiss
    I feel a love I've never known
    Yet my heart feels so alone
    When our bodies are intertwined
    And his hand is locked in mine
    We're laying there cheek to cheek
    Listening to our souls speak
    We share our dreams, we share our fears
    We're not afraid to shed our tears
    We can cry and we can laugh
    But we're burdened by our pasts
    Jealousy begins to swell
    Why can't happiness just prevail
    Laughter always turns to anger
    Our love is once again in danger
    Good times don't ever seem to last
    We can blame that on our past
    Life has made us who we are
    We never seem to get too far,
    My soul will never really know
    How to ever let you go
    This love we have was unexpected
    My heart is left unprotected,
    I feel our paths were meant to cross
    Before you, my soul was lost
    Life's journey's leading me to you
    I need us both to see this through,
    I want a love that others envy
    And a heart that isn't empty
    I want you to cause my biggest smiles
    Ones that can be seen for miles,
    How can our story ever start
    If we won't open up our hearts
    I never want our love to end
    You're my lover and my best friend,
    I'm willing to work to make this last
    Leaving our pasts in the past
    Love builds from trust, honesty, and respect
    I'll give it to you and it's what I'll expect,
    So don't give up on what we have
    Let's build it up and make it last
    It'll be worth it, I promise you this
    Our love is one that we would miss
    My heart and soul are lost without you
    Let's let love's destiny see us through
    You're my soulmate, you were made for me
    You're my heart's final destiny

    • By Desiree Sanders
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2011

    This is about being in a relationship where you almost start to lose your own identity, and the sacrifices you have taken and willing to take for your loved one!

    Just Me Feeling The Neglect?

    There once was a time,
    I would never feel last;
    I'm not sure what happened,
    But that feeling has became the past.

    There once was a time,
    Seeing me, brought a smile to your face,
    Still I'm not sure what happened,
    But that smile, has slowly erased!

    There once was a time,
    We would communicate so great,
    And I still cannot figure out,
    And can only hope it isn't too late.

    Maybe its me and the way that I act?
    Maybe its you from the way that I react?
    Maybe its the drugs, starting to take affect?
    Maybe its just me, feeling the neglect?

    I care more about solving the problem,
    And less about "who's fault!"
    Because this is literally driving me crazy,
    And I am ready for the end result.

    With all of that said,
    to break up.. I hope never;
    Michael, I'm truly in love with you,
    And still want us to be forever!

    Whoever out there who feels the same... Don't worry, love will come in the right time. Just be patient.

    I start my journey on having faith
    That someday I'll find my day
    I know this day is not too late
    For love to come my way

    Feeling lost in a chamber clear
    Seeking truth for love to heal
    All the pains I have to bear
    What is love if it's not real

    Shading my heart with shades of blue
    Saving all my tears
    Just to look for a love that's true
    Taking all the risk

    Walking through a lonely path
    I know it's all I have
    And there's nothing I can do
    But to Look for Eternal Love

  18. 16. Soul Mates?

    • By Lisa
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems November 2008

    I have been married for almost 16 years. We have 2 children ages 16 and 12. We are both questioning our relationship after the death of his brother. He was only 41.

    What ever happened to us when did we end?
    How long ago did I consider you a friend?

    The pain in my heart has turned into fear.
    I can't imagine life without you near.

    I have known all along I love you too much.
    I smother you and long for your touch.

    I try to hide how much you mean to me.
    Like a caged bird you want to be free.

    I should have had other friends and interests too!
    My friends I left so I wouldn't be away from you.

    I guess I just need that one best friend to confide.
    That friend that no matter what would be by my side.

    I should have known that you wouldn't be.
    You would never be that friend to me.

    I shouldn't have allowed it to go on this long.
    When I look in your eyes I see I was wrong.

    I tried to force you to think like I do.
    I wasn't a very good friend to you!

    I really like your poem, dear. It reminds me of someone I loved the most. I believed in her, but it seemed she never felt like I did. Love is full of surprises, but I never knew that kind of...

  19. 17. More Than Enough

    Just tell her she is perfect in the dark
    her light shines
    so the whole world can see her heart
    hold her tight
    so she knows if she ever did fall
    you would be there to catch her
    you will be there through every storm
    love her fiercely
    including all her scars
    and if she is brave enough
    to stand in front of you
    broken and fragile
    make sure she knows
    she is more than enough

  20. 18. Your Love In The Palm Of My Hand

    • By Rosa Livingstone
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2013

    Relationships seem so complicated yet they are so simple. It's about respecting and cherishing your Partner as a feeling being. I have confused manipulation and control, and allowed myself to be disrespected all in the name of love. But learning that I needed to love and respect myself opened me to a love that allows me to love without boundaries and to trust my Partner because I now trust myself.
    For this I am grateful and cherish my Partner.

    Learning How To Love Poem

    I hold our love in the palm of my hand as one would a newborn: with awe and delicacy, with softness and protection, with the promise to nurture

    I hold our love in the palm of my hand as one would a stone found on a sunny ocean shore, with respect for its strength, with wonder for its resiliency, with deference for its journey to the shore

    I hold our love in the palm of my hand as one would a diamond, with humility of its beauty, with amazement at its density, with humbleness of its potential to withstand harshness

    I hold our love in the palm of my hand as I would my own, accepting its fragility, acknowledging its power, respecting its potency and most of all, understanding its need to be cherished

    I recognize that the love I feel for you is a gift to be appreciated, and in so doing, it may have the chance to grow and flourish

    My Love
    My love, My love
    Come and go away
    with me to the secret place of the heart
    A place only you can enter and be mine forever
    Love is the greatest thing you can give to another

  21. 19. What I Have Been Missing

    • By Troy Williams
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2010

    This poem is for a special woman that I took the chance to let her see me for who I am after many failed relationships veiled in mystery because I would only let women know only so much about me because of my insecurities and mistrust which leaves one feeling very unfulfilled and not complete. So I decided to just be totally open and if she either accepted me or rejected me, it was a victory for me because I was honest.

    You invaded my private world with your beautiful smile and understanding heart,
    And I wondered to myself that you were different right from the very start.
    You listened without judgment to what I had about me to say,
    And even after I was done with the good, the bad, the ugly you still didn't run away.
    We developed a friendship with trust, with no walls to build or guard,
    We decided to leave the past behind and step into the good that could be no matter our discomfort or how hard.
    I've grown to love you with no hidden agenda or false pretense but with only the real me,
    Letting you get to know about me what most people never see.
    I'm writing this to you for you to understand,
    That spending time with you is so precious I never want to let go your hand.
    The time that we spend apart cannot equal when we are together,
    I miss you oh too much but when we meet again will be so much better.
    Our time apart for me helps me see that you are what I have for many years been missing in my life,
    A woman that is beautiful, and kind, and understanding, and loving, you are the woman I wished I would have met and been together long ago, and made you my wife.
    But the past is the past, and the future is what we do with each moment now,
    Let's make each moment we are together count and overshadow the past,
    And love like never before because that will be what will forever last.
    I love you.

  22. 20. A Lost And Found For Love

    What's this thing called love? For some, it's as if their heart had wings! For others, it's like their heart was being crushed! Still others see it as entrapment and ends up being a big pain in the butt! We all have our own recipes for true love. Mine is truth, trust and time.

    Love Is Out There

    There're many women I have met
    And loved throughout my years.
    Some provided joy I'd get,
    But most provided tears.

    There were those in fancy clothes
    Who'd show me their affections.
    Less fancy dressers then arose
    And showed me new directions.

    But all would leave, I'm not sure why,
    For other loves or interests.
    So, with the last tears that I'd dry,
    I vowed to end these contests.

    No longer would I give my heart
    To have it sliced in two!
    Too many dreams were torn apart
    By women that I knew!

    I became an island to myself,
    With interests born anew.
    My hopes of love placed on a shelf
    Where mold and mildew grew.


    The best laid plans of mice and men
    Do often go astray.
    I saw this truth one evening when
    She came in sight one day.

    She looked at me with lonely eyes,
    I'm sure mine looked the same.
    It took some time to realize
    Attraction was to blame.

    The vow I'd made to hide my heart
    Began to fade from view.
    My new love seemed so far apart
    From the other ones I knew.

    Today, my love is with me still,
    So many years we've shared.
    My love and trust have been fulfilled
    And formed a love that's not compared.

    For those out there, please don't despair;
    Don't squander your affections.
    Don't hide your need for love to share;
    Don't dwell on your rejections.

    Love is there, I'm proof of that,
    No matter what your setback.
    There's someone there who's where you're at,
    Who'll show the joy you'll get back.

    At night, when we both lie in bed,
    She shows what my love's meant.
    I stroke the hair upon her head;
    She whispers sweet contentment.

    What makes a moth fly to a light?
    Is it need for what they see?
    Or does it seem, their useless flight,
    Is just curiosity?

    I guess it's both that brought us close,
    Our lives of different walks.
    But now, to please my love the most,
    I'll clean her litter box.
