Short Sweet Love Poems

A love poem will not always be long and flowery. Sometimes what you need to say can be very short. In fact it may be the fact that the poem is short that makes it special. Its short length may show that you put the time and effort in to make every word count. You considered carefully every word choice. Every word choice has a reason behind it. A short poem can be the ultimate act of romance when it is given the time and effort that it deserves.

60 Short Love Poems For Him and For Her

  1. 1. Six Senses Of Love

    Learning about poetry, I was taught to use all the senses as much as possible. This extremely short poem uses all the senses, plus one, and perfectly describes how I felt when I first met my future husband.

    Falling In Love

    I hear your voice,
    I see you grin,
    I taste your lips,
    I breathe you in,
    I hold you close,
    I touch your skin.

    My sixth sense says,
    "I’ll marry him."

  3. 2. A Helping Hand

    There are times when the touch of a fellow human being can be very comforting

    A Comforting Touch

    You hold my hand,
    I, like a child, feel safe.
    You hold my hand,
    I feel a warm embrace.
    You hold my hand,
    my fears begin to fade.
    You hold my hand,
    and I am less afraid.
    You hold my hand,
    I know a sense of peace.
    You hold my hand,
    I feel my troubles cease.

  5. 3. I Want Love

    I don’t want attachment.
    I want love.

    I don’t want you to be
    with me because it hurts
    you to not be with me.

    I want you to be with me
    because being with me
    makes you feel the most
    alive you’ve ever felt.

  6. 4. Meant To Be

    I wrote this poem thinking about him...our future together...what we could be. I've wanted to be with him for so long, but only for him will I wait and be patient. He will be worth the wait, I just know it.

    Being So Deeply In Love

    As I get to know you more and more
    My feelings for you start getting harder to ignore
    I love talking to you every day
    Even when there's not much to say
    Your beautiful smile always stays in my mind
    Such a gentleman, so cute and so kind
    I know we're meant to be
    I really hope you would agree

  7. 5. Next To One Another

    This poem is from Aurora Raine's first poetry book, Love Notes and Lullabies.

    I believe
    in some way
    no matter how much
    we have changed
    or how much time has passed
    I believe
    our souls
    will always feel at home
    next to one another

  8. 6. The Thing About Love

    Love Can Put You Back Together

    The thing is:
    Love will break you.
    That is a guarantee.
    Yet at the same time,
    it is the only thing
    that can put you

    • By Fiona

    A poem about what he brings to me and how much he means to me.

    I'm Happiest With You

    You bring the sunshine to my rain.
    You give me love when I feel pain.

    Lazy mornings and starry skies,
    my time with you always flies.

    I'm happiest with you, and on that I'd bet,
    the way I feel with you I will never forget.

  10. 8. Let Love Grow

    I want to live in a world
    where nobody is afraid
    to fall in love
    or admit it
    and let love grow
    like wildflowers
    in the most unexpected
    (but beautiful)
    places.

  11. 9. She Makes Me Whole

    I've never thought of her as perfect. But she was the closest I've ever been to knowing what it means to belong. The truth is, I still don't know what love means, but when I hear the word, I think of her.

    I don’t think
    she is perfect.
    She is flawed and broken
    like the rest of us.
    But the pieces she has
    left of her heart
    match the pieces
    missing from mine.
    She is not perfect
    but she does
    make me whole.

  12. 10. I Can Be Anything You Want And Need

    • By S.L. Gray
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 22, 2020

    I can be the silence
    when the world around you
    gets to be too loud.

    I can be the rain
    pattering on your rooftop
    when you need that lullaby.

    I can be anything
    you want and need
    to make this life settle in
    and be at ease.

  13. 11. You

    You are
    what I’ve been
    searching for,
    chasing after,
    longing to find,
    every star,
    moonbeam
    and dream,
    all of every thing
    so infinitely far away
    and yet so intimately
    here in my arms.

  14. 12. Someone To Walk With Me

    You are whole all on your own. Forever love is finding the one who will walk alongside you.

    I was never looking
    for another half
    to make me whole,
    just someone
    who was willing
    to walk with me
    no matter how far
    I strayed.

  18. 16. When You're Next To Me

    Whenever you were next to me, there was no rest of the world. There were no stars painting light to the darkness, no wind at our backs, no birdsong in the trees. To me, there was only ever you.
    Even now, things slow down and pause when I think of you. There are still those little sections of lost time, where everything is drowned out by those unanswerable questions about what might have been.

    The world seems
    somehow slower
    when you are
    next to me.
    As though my senses
    cannot focus
    on anything
    but you.

  19. 17. Love Over Time

    In cracked skin
    and calloused hands
    morning light
    and greying hair
    in memories
    of the first touch
    and the taste of lips
    I love you here
    I loved you there
    I love you now
    I loved you then
    time will never be a friend
    but our love will never end

  20. 18. True Love

    The soft touch of your hand on mine truly lets me know what love is for the first time.

    A Girl Who Is Perfect In Every Way

    When the moon shines on your face,
    I feel the warmth of the sun.
    I feel your beauty beckoning me into your arms.
    The soft touch of your hand on mine
    Truly lets me know what love is for the first time.
    Your heart touches those who choose to feel.
    When I see you, I pinch myself to see if this is real.

  21. 19. The Power Of Your Smile

    I wrote this poem to express the power of a smile. It can be from a loved one or family, but the power of a smile is unlimited.

    Your Smile Can Heal My Heart

    The sun can burn my skin.
    The beams blast from afar,
    But the sun is no match to your powerful smile
    That can heal a frozen heart.

  22. 20. Sun Kissed

    • By Peter C. Free
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 2019

    Such a short poem but so full of meaning. A few years ago, I thought my marriage was over. There were many sparkling stars but no sun. By God's grace, we're back together. This poem celebrates life, love, and commitment. It is about the joy of my life, my wife, who believed in us even when I had lost all hope in us. She is my daily miracle.

    You Have Made My Dreams Come True

    A squillion stars shine in the sky.
    Soaring angels sing sweet songs nearby.
    I wake and smile, my dreams are true.
    The star in my arms, my sun, is you.
