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. 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.

  3. 2. 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.

  5. 3. 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.

    Short Love Poem For The Man I Love

    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.

  7. 5. God's Gift

    My wife Ann passed away in 2010. I had never written poems before, but it helped to take my mind off my grieving. I have written over 100 poems on FFP Poetry Forum under the name of Prince Charles.

    Love is like a river,
    A never ending stream.
    Love is shared by each other
    To answer someone's dream.

    It's a never ending story;
    Love is not a lie.
    You can share in all its glory,
    For love will never die.

    Love is all around you,
    The moon and stars above.
    Love is a gift from God,
    And God is a gift of love.

    Loving Someone Forever

    When I say I love you, please believe it's true.
    When I say forever, know I'll never leave you.

  13. 11. I Love You

    • By Shannon
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2009

    Before I met my boyfriend, I was very depressed, felt alone, and didn't know where I belonged in the world. When he came into my life, I finally felt wanted and cared for, and I wanted him to know how much he means to me. I just want him to understand that without him I probably wouldn't be living to write this right now.

    Short I Love You Poem

    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!

  14. 12. 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.

  15. 13. Let Go

    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 2015

    I fell in love with my best friend, but the feelings weren't returned.

    Poem About Falling In Love And Letting Go

    What do I do,
    When I'm still in love with you?
    You walked away,
    'Cause you didn't want to stay.
    You broke my heart, you tore me apart.
    Every day I wait for you,
    Telling myself our love was true.
    But when you don't show, more tears start to flow.
    That's when I know
    I have to let go.

    This is just a poem I felt moved to write about a girl, and that's about it.

    Poem About A Girl I Can't Get Off My Mind

    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.

    We don't always have to shout our love. It can be done with a soft whisper into the ears of our lover.

    Whispering Our Love

    Come a little closer
    Honey, come a little closer,
    let me whisper in your ear.
    Let me tell it to you softly,
    So that no one else will hear.
    What I have to say is private,
    and is just between us two;
    just want you, to know how much,
    I love the things you do

    A short and sweet love poem

    If you said you were cold,

    This heart in my hands I hold out to you.

  21. 19. 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."

    This is to my closest love and my best friend. They motivate me.

    How do I start?
    What do I say?
    I love you and you take my breath away?
    Do I say hold me tight, keep me warm all through the night?
    So how do I start?
    I start like this: hold me, love me, teach me, move me, motivate me to do something great.
    Now that I've started, how do I end?
    I end like this
