Romantic Love Poetry for Him and Her

Romance is the language of love. It is the way that you show your partner that you care about them. Every person has their own idea of what they might consider romantic. For some it will be dressing up for the other or buying flowers or jewelry. There is no way to know what is romantic without knowing the person. Romance is created by the feeling that you are genuinely cared about. All romance has one thing in common; it must show the other person that you care enough to find out what is meaningful to them.

41 Sweet Romantic Things to Say to your Girlfriend or Boyfriend

  1. 1. If I Thought

    This is a poem written for and dedicated to my best friend. I love him with all my heart and soul and couldn't have asked for a better friend.

    Poem About The Love I Have For My Best Friend

    If I thought for just one moment that this would be my last breath,
    I'd tell you I'll love you forever, even beyond death.
    If I thought for just one moment that your face would be the last I'd see,
    I'd take a million pictures and save them just for me.
    If I thought for just one moment that your voice would be the last I'd hear,
    I'd listen attentively and promise not to shed a tear.
    If I thought for just one moment that your touch would be the last I'd feel,
    I'd embrace you and know that this has all been real.
    If I thought for just one moment that my heart would beat its last beat,
    I'd thank the Lord for allowing us to meet.

  3. 2. Baby When You Hold Me

    A beautiful song of genuine affections for someone.

    Baby, when you hold me, my emotions makes it clear
    Just how much you mean to me while we are laying here.
    I listen to your heartbeat in rhythm with my own,
    With every pound that warming sound keeps me safe with love you've shown.

    Baby, when you touch me with hands so soft but strong,
    You wrap me in your warm embrace, just where I belong.
    You hold me close and comfort me all throughout the night
    Until you open up your eyes to first signs of daylight.

    Baby when you kiss me before you start your day,
    The happiness you bring my heart, no words can ever say.
    You make my life so beautiful, wonderful, and new.
    You're my hopes and dreams. You're my everything; I'm so in love with you.

  5. 3. Let Me

    I met a girl in an unexpected place, and I never thought I'd fall in love with her. Getting to know each other, I realized we just share a lot of things in common. We both come from a sad past the broke our hearts. But I found home in her. I wrote this poem for her to let her know that everything's gonna be all right from now on. Just let me take care of you from here on out.

    I Will Take Care Of You

    Let me take care of your broken heart
    and show you how to fly.
    Let me hold you gently by the hand
    and kiss your tears goodbye.

    Let me lead you to tomorrow's light
    and out of needless rain,
    'cause all I want right now
    is to see you smile again.

    Let me sing you all the songs I wrote
    'til you sleep in my embrace,
    and I'll keep you safe and warm until
    the sunlight strokes your face.

    Let me bring you up the mountain's peak,
    and I'll let you touch the skies
    to remind you of the strength I see
    when I look into your eyes.

    Let me kiss and show you what is love
    and the happiness it brings.
    You'll sail again like a butterfly
    endowed with pretty wings.

    Let me do all these to let you see
    our fates are intertwined.
    You're the accidental precious gem
    I've waited long to find.

    The earth and sky conspired to make us meet.
    They knew we both belong
    to each other like words and lovely notes
    give life to every song.

    So fly with me, my beautiful one.
    It's time we leave the past.
    I'm yours to keep, and you are mine.
    We're finally home at last.

  6. 4. Silence Is Golden

    Hi, I have been writing poems since I was around 11 years old. My grandpa is also a poet and I am proud to say some of his talent has rubbed off on me. I am now 27 years old and feel ready to share some of my words with the world. I am from England but am currently living in Shanghai, China, as I am an ESL teacher. I hope you like what I have to offer.

    The Simple Things I Love About You

    It is not your conversation
    That keeps me entertained
    But rather the way you look at me
    That makes me feel sustained
    It's the curve of your lips
    And the curl of your hair
    T'is all of the little things
    That make me stop and stare

    It is not your intelligence
    That drew me close to you
    It is not your sense of humour
    That has thrown me all askew
    It's the touch of your hand
    And the thoughts in your head
    T'is all of the little things
    The things that don't get said

    It's not your vivid history
    That's made me fall in love
    It's not your comprehension
    Of the world or what's above
    It is your soft temperament
    And the way you smile at me
    T'is all of the little things
    That make me want to see

    It's not when we are talking
    That I want to know some more
    It is not whilst you teach me
    I learn what I'm looking for
    It is the time we spend alone
    And the time in utter silence
    T'is all of the little things
    That form a strong alliance

    It's not the job you work so hard
    That shows your true commitment
    It's not your crazy habits
    That give me great fulfilment
    It is the way you use your hands
    And the way I have been chosen
    T'is all of the little things
    Why I know silence is golden

  7. 5. Love's Language

    Ella Wheeler Wilcox (1850 - 1919) was an American author and poet. Her best-known work was Poems of Passion. Her most enduring work was "Solitude", which contains the lines: "Laugh, and the world laughs with you; Weep, and you weep alone". Her autobiography, The Worlds and I, was published in 1918, a year before her death.

    How does Love speak?
    In the faint flush upon the telltale cheek,
    And in the pallor that succeeds it; by
    The quivering lid of an averted eye--
    The smile that proves the parent to a sigh
    Thus doth Love speak.

    How does Love speak?
    By the uneven heart-throbs, and the freak
    Of bounding pulses that stand still and ache,
    While new emotions, like strange barges, make
    Along vein-channels their disturbing course;
    Still as the dawn, and with the dawn's swift force--
    Thus doth Love speak.

    How does Love speak?
    In the avoidance of that which we seek--
    The sudden silence and reserve when near--
    The eye that glistens with an unshed tear--
    The joy that seems the counterpart of fear,
    As the alarmed heart leaps in the breast,
    And knows, and names, and greets its godlike guest--
    Thus doth Love speak.

    How does Love speak?
    In the proud spirit suddenly grown meek--
    The haughty heart grown humble; in the tender
    And unnamed light that floods the world with splendor;
    In the resemblance which the fond eyes trace
    In all fair things to one beloved face;
    In the shy touch of hands that thrill and tremble;
    In looks and lips that can no more dissemble--
    Thus doth Love speak.

    How does Love speak?
    In the wild words that uttered seem so weak
    They shrink ashamed in silence; in the fire
    Glance strikes with glance, swift flashing high and higher,
    Like lightnings that precede the mighty storm;
    In the deep, soulful stillness; in the warm,
    Impassioned tide that sweeps through throbbing veins,
    Between the shores of keen delights and pains;
    In the embrace where madness melts in bliss,
    And in the convulsive rapture of a kiss--
    Thus doth Love speak.

  8. 6. The Meaning Of Love

    I wrote this poem the first time I fell in love with someone. I then came to know what love is and how it feels. I decided to write it down so I could express my views.

    To love is to share life together,
    to build special plans just for two,
    to work side by side,
    and then smile with pride,
    as one by one, dreams all come true.

    To love is to help and encourage
    with smiles and sincere words of praise,
    to take time to share,
    to listen and care
    in tender, affectionate ways.

    To love is to have someone special,
    one on whom you can always depend
    to be there through the years,
    sharing laughter and tears,
    as a partner, a lover, a friend.

    To love is to make special memories
    of moments you love to recall,
    of all the good things
    that sharing life brings.
    Love is the greatest of all.

    I've learned the full meaning
    of sharing and caring
    and having my dreams all come true;
    I've learned the full meaning
    of being in love
    by being and loving with you.

  9. 7. What She Is To Me

    While wondering how to describe an amazing girl to me, I just decided at that moment the words my heart would use.

    Her Beauty

    Look at the beauty in her eyes,
    a glow that shines like the sunrise.
    Her smile opens up the cloudy skies,
    her laughter delights butterflies.
    The ocean greets her as she passes by.
    Her gorgeous toes leave their mark, saying goodbye.

    Gentle breeze through her hair,
    she walks elegantly while astonished eyes all stare.
    Rosy cheeks cover her face.
    A flower-child blossoms, kindly accepting embrace.
    She is a thornless rose without compare.
    She is the love my heart will forever endear.

  11. 9. I Love You

    This poem was written with my wife in mind, as a Valentine's Day gift to her. We have been married for 23 years, and our love seems to get stronger every day. I know I would be utterly lost without her; she is my rock, my bond, and my very soul. I hope it can appeal to others, as I think it should be shared. If it is published, then hopefully some of my other poems will appeal too. It's a little hobby of mine I'd like to share with anyone interested.

    The Way You Make Me Feel Poem

    I can't talk to you without feeling honor.
    I can't see you without feeling wonder.
    I can't touch you without feeling pure.
    I can't feel you without wanting more.
    I can't hold you without feeling safe.
    I can't kiss you without feeling great.
    I can't miss you without feeling pain.
    I can't meet you without wanting to again.
    I can't watch you without feeling awe.
    I can't love you without feeling loved.
    I can't lay with you without feeling passion.
    I can't stay away without feeling rationed.
    I can't dream of you without sleeping soundly.
    I can't cope without you around me.
    I can't sleep without you in the bed.
    I can't be alive without feeling your breath.
    I can't think without you on my mind.
    I can't leave without feeling unkind,
    But most of all,
    I can't exist without you in my life.

  12. 10. Love In Your Eyes

    • By Youseline Bazil
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems September 2008

    This poem is about true love. When two people are truly in love, they can read each other's mind because they are connected in soul and body. There is no barrier that love can't penetrate.

    When I am looking into your eyes,
    I see all the love you have for me.
    I see in your eyes you care for me a lot.
    I see your love for me is true,
    And you will do whatever it takes to have me in your life.

    When I am looking into your eyes,
    I see your love for me is unconditional.
    Your eyes tell me you will never leave me.
    You will always stay by my side
    To protect and cherish me.

    When I am looking into your eyes,
    I see with you everything is possible.
    I see in your eyes your love for me is everlasting.
    Your eyes tell me you really, really love me.

  13. 11. My True Love

    • By Hailey L. Sturgill
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    The author shares a feeling with a significant other: My feelings for you are way more than skin deep. I think that you're the one.

    I have a feeling
    That I can't comprehend.
    In my deepest thoughts you are
    More than just a friend.

    I wouldn't want to
    Rush us now
    As love we explore,
    But there's a growing love inside
    That we just can't ignore.

    I love the times we
    Spend together. We are comfortable
    And free. I think of you when we are
    Alone. I think of you and me.

    We have shared
    Secrets to uncover. There's more
    To life. We will both discover.
    I love you always.

    I'll love you when you're dumb,
    I'll love you when you're smart,
    I'll love you any way you are,
    Right from the start.

    I'll love you if you're tall
    I'll love you if you're short,
    I'll love you if you're pretty,
    Or just an ugly dork.

    I'll love you if you're toothless,
    I'll love you if you're blind,
    Anything that's wrong with you,
    To me you'll be fine.

    My heart is opening up now,
    Unlike it used to do.
    I see the pain that's in your heart,
    And sometimes I feel it too.

    I'll love you tomorrow,
    I'll love you today,
    I'll love you forever,
    And forever always.

    For I believe that you will value it.

    I want to share my whole life with you
    For me to show that my love is true.
    I want to hold you in my arms
    And sing you songs and lullabies.

    Loving you is what I want to do,
    Although I know that it can make me blue
    'Cause tears in my eyes have nothing to do
    If I'm with a man that is you.

    • By Danielle C. Thomas
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    Do you believe in love at first sight? Decide for yourself and read this poem.

    When first we touched,
    My heart flew high,
    On gossamer wings through a cloudless sky.
    They said it was built upon a lie.
    They told me my feelings would surely fade.
    Passion would flare, and foes would be made.
    Can you not put the past behind?
    True love can change a river's course
    Or pierce the strongest vault with ease.
    True love can turn coal into gold
    Or tame the tempest to a balmy breeze.
    Quite some time has passed since then:
    People no longer criticize.
    For now they see that truth exists
    Where once there might have been only lies.
    Still my feelings are the same today
    As they were on that very first,
    For when we touch, my heart still flies on gossamer wings through cloudless skies.

    These are the things I think when I think of you...

    Poem About Thinking Of Time With Lover

    I imagine.
    When I do,
    I can only think of you.
    How your smile spreads to your eyes,
    Making me want to live in the moment forever.
    I imagine
    That we walk on paths,
    Unknown to us,
    Filled with fear and excitement,
    Winding with happiness that is constant.
    I imagine
    That we see the dawn,
    Bursting with resplendent hues,
    And birds soaring in the sky,
    Inviting us to hum along.
    I imagine
    That we break rules,
    Do things our own way,
    Travel the world,
    To leave our traces.
    I imagine
    A cold winter night
    In your arms,
    Watching the snow,
    Sitting at the window.
    I imagine
    The story of us
    Has no end
    Or beginning
    But continues like the universe.
    I imagine
    I could fill your heart
    With all my love,
    So that we know a love,
    Mysterious to this world.
    I imagine
    And wonder
    What you would imagine,
    With a smile extending to my eyes.

    This poem was written about my husband. I am explaining how love as a couple feels.

    A Life-Long Relationship

    Love sits on my shoulder and whispers in my ear.
    It tells me how you love me and the words I want to hear.
    Love is growing with you and filling in the gaps.
    Love is our tomorrows, our future, and our past.
    Love binds the ties together and secures them with a knot.
    Love is our plans that we outgrew and the ones that we forgot.
    Love is what we've had together, all these blessed years.
    Love sits on my shoulder and whispers in my ear.

    When we encounter our true love, we dream of a thousand ways to make ourselves known to her.

    Every morning I would fly to your place
    and sit at the window
    to be the first one every day
    to see your lovely face.

    I wish I were the dew.
    When you pick the rose
    and smell its scent,
    I would silently wish you good morning
    and kiss you on your nose.

    I wish I were the mirror,
    the mirror on your wall.
    When you would ask me
    I would tell you, my love,
    you are the fairest of them all.

    Every morning when you pray
    I wish I were the sunrays
    to see you and be your admirer
    and pray for your happiness.
    God bless you with grace.

    Oh, if I were...I wish I were
    or be me only
    singing to you the song of love
    if you would only hear

  20. 18. A Lover's Dance

    • By Ernsalite Menard
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    A lover's dance is patient and kind.
    It feeds your heart, soul and mind.
    It brings you joy and happiness within,
    Knowing that he or she will be with you
    Through thick and thin.

    A lover's dance can be recaptured
    Only if the partner's heart has not been
    Fractured.

    A lover's dance has no mistakes.
    It plays no one, not even games.

    A lover's dance is slow and kind,
    Easy to learn but hard to find.

    A lover's dance.

    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2020

    A poem for my Russian love, my life and soul! My true heart, love does hurt! We're thousands of miles apart but closer than most in love! My sweet love is in the hospital with a life-threatening illness. This is a poem to say what I feel about her.

    I'll Be Your Knight In Shining Armor

    Whenever you're in danger
    Or feeling down and blue,
    I'll be there to hold your hand.
    Yes, I'll be there with you.

    I would keep you safe and sound,
    My arms around your waist.
    You would feel my heart beat fast
    As I gently touch your face.

    If we were in a fairy tale,
    You'd be my damsel in distress.
    I would be wearing shining armor,
    And you, a long white dress.

    I would battle fierce dragons
    And other monsters, too.
    All these things and much, much more
    I would do for you.

    I would take you on my steed
    Through forests dark and wild,
    With ferocious beasts and demons, too.
    I'll be there by your side.

    My sword will be ready
    To keep you safe from harm.
    I'll fight the world just for you.
    I'll be your lucky charm.

    I'll build a castle strong and high
    To keep the wolves at bay.
    For all our lives to live there,
    Where I will love you more each day.

    Where we would live like Queen and King,
    And songs of love they'd sing,
    All dedicated to the one I love,
    And this song for you I bring.
