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.

    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.

    • 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!

    • By Shelby T. Parsons
    •  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.

  8. 6. Beauty Is Love

    I thought about what beauty is and all I could think of was love.

    Beauty isn't seen by eyes.
    It's felt by hearts,
    Recognized by souls,
    In the presence of love.

  10. 8. 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.

    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.

  12. 10. Make Me Feel

    • By Mariah Chandan
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2019

    These past few months I've felt numb. Felt like I didn't know how to love or even feel anger. Everything became so nonchalant. I gave up on love, but I recently found the one who has made me the happiest female alive. I'm blessed.

    Learning How To Love Again

    Take my heart; I'll give it with ease.
    Take my hand and walk this journey with me.
    Take these scars and heal them all up.
    Take these fears and make them vanish when things get tough.
    Take this smile and make it stretch so wide.
    Take these arms and hold me oh so tight.
    Take these feelings and make them real.
    At the end, show me how to feel.

    A short and sweet love poem

    If you said you were cold,
    I would wrap my arms around you.

    This heart in my hands I hold out to you.

    I wrote this poem for someone who means the world to me. It tells everything or anything that love really means to me. This one poem actually symbolizes my love for someone who has been there for me through the bad and even the worst times for me.

    especially when I said, "We'll be together till we're dead."

    I was left and broken-hearted. I wrote this poem and felt a little stronger.

    The One That Got Away

    If roses were red and violets could be blue,
    I'd take us away to a place just for two.
    You'd see my true colors and all that I felt.
    I'd see that you could love me and nobody else.
    We'd build ourselves a fortress where we'd run and play.
    You'd be mine and I'd be yours 'til our dying day.
    Then I wake and realize you were never here.
    It's all just my thoughts, my dreams, my hopes...
    But now it's only tears!

    Poem about true love...

    Short Poem About What True Love Stands For

    True love is measured by how deep you fall
    And judged by how low you are willing to crawl
    Just to save it and make it last
    It is determined by how willing you are to open up and offer your trust.
    It is hospitable, amazing at all times, and always kind.
    It is never prejudiced, it is color blind..

    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
