Poems About First Time Love

Of all the love poems written, love poems by teens are the most romantic, and passionate. Everything is more intense when you are tasting it for the first time, and that first taste of love is often enough to blow you away. During our teens is when we first encounter the heady feelings of love. The memories of our first kiss, our first date, our first "I love you" are remembered for the rest of our lives.

14 First Love Poems by Teens

  1. 1. True Love

    You can't know what falling in love feels like until you experience it yourself. "For it was not in my head but deep in my heart."

    Poem About Looking For Love

    You hear of true love
    In movies and books
    But not based on
    Popularity or looks.

    I've searched every corner
    Deep in my mind.
    But this one little thing
    I just could not find.

    For it was not in my head
    But deep in my heart.
    Looking for this
    Completely tore me apart.

    Then one day I found it,
    This thing we call love.
    It's something wonderful,
    Sent from above.

    We stared at each other
    As our faces turned red.
    Yet nothing was spoken,
    Nothing was said.

    No words were needed
    Because our hearts said it all.
    We'd be together forever,
    For in love we did fall.

  3. 2. Love Me In A Special Way

    • By Brianna Skye Campbell
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2017

    I wrote this poem when I was 13. I had a huge crush on my best friend. He knew I loved him but never said anything about it. One day I told him how I felt, and he said he didn't feel the exact same way. All he ever wanted to be was friends. I remember running straight home with tears streaked down my cheeks. I felt terrible. The next day and the day after that, I acted as if none of it had ever happened. But then one day I couldn't hide the fact that I still loved him. Now I'm 15 and still love the boy.

    Wanting To Be More Than Just Friends

    I know I can't force you to love me,
    But hear me out
    When I say
    I love you
    In a special way.

    How many times do I have to say it?
    One hundred?
    Two hundred?
    Three hundred times?

    I know I can't force you to love me,
    But hear me out
    When I say
    I love you
    In a special way.

    I'm not crazy,
    But then again,
    I'm crazy for you.
    The way you smile
    And when you look out for me,
    It's like you're a secret guard,
    Always there,
    But then you say,
    "We're just friends.
    And that's all we'll ever be.
    Friends."
    All I say
    Is okay.

    Then I think...
    I see the way you look at me.
    Your eyes are always glued to mine.
    I feel the way your soft hands hold mine,
    But you always say,
    "It means nothing.
    We are just friends."
    I roll my eyes and say okay.

    I know I can't force you to love me,
    But hear me out
    When I say
    I love you
    In a special way.

    And you best not forget.
    If you do,
    Then I'll just have to remind you
    I love you
    In a special way!

  5. 3. Once Upon A Love

    • By Sierra Vaughn
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2010

    I am 15 years old and love poetry just like my mom. I wrote this poem for my aunt/my mother and her first true love. She was head over heels for this guy and cried over him for years! One night, as I sat and watched her cry, I wrote her this poem, while I was dying inside.

    Poem About Remembering A Lover

    What we have is something new,
    Our love for each other has always been true.
    We met in a very uncertain way,
    but if it wasn't for that,
    I wouldn't know you today.

    You're my life, my world, my everything indeed
    Our love just keeps growing like a sunflower seed.
    What we had, I cannot explain,
    but you never argued and never complained.

    We laughed, we cried, we put so much in store.
    We'll hold our memories in our hearts forevermore.

    Over the years, we fell apart,
    but I'm hoping one day,
    we'll have a new start.

    So as time goes by and others come through,
    I still remember our love
    and everything about you.

  6. 4. When I First Met You

    • By Angela Rodriguez
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2009

    I'm 16, and this poem is about a boy that was my first love...he finally realized what he lost, and like I said, I have found someone new. It's funny how things work out, huh?

    When I first met you, I didn't give it a second thought
    But after a few hours I knew that I was caught
    I loved your hair, your voice, and your smile
    I knew I could make it work if we just talked for awhile
    But that wasn't as easy as I thought it would be
    because for some reason you just didn't want to talk to me
    But that soon changed and you stole my heart
    I didn't trust you, but it was a start
    I had so much fun, but it was over so fast
    Now all I can wonder is how long these feelings will last?
    Years later, the feelings are still here...
    maybe you'll never feel the same and that's my biggest fear.
    Maybe someday you'll wake up and realize just what you mean to me,
    but probably not,
    so I'll move on and find the one meant for me.

  7. 5. The Way I Truly Feel

    • By Tyler Morgan
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2011

    This is about a girl I met in sixth grade. I thought I never had a chance with her, and now she's my girlfriend.

    Remembering The Start Of A Relationship Poem

    I remember the first time we met.
    I knew I never had a chance with you.
    I remember looking into your eyes,
    I saw the love and happiness in your soul.
    I remember the way I truly felt.

    I remember waking up each day thinking I got to see you
    I always knew there was something special about you.
    I remember when we first started to talk,
    I never wanted to stop.
    I remember the way I truly felt.

    I remember looking past your beauty to who you truly are.
    I started to get a funny feeling in my lower stomach.
    I remember having a dream about you.
    I knew that you didn't feel the same way back,
    I remember the way I truly felt.

    I remember when we started to become close,
    I always liked you deep down in my heart.
    I remember you telling me you felt the same way back.
    I never could have been happier.
    I remember the way I truly felt.

    I remember asking you to go see a movie.
    I wasn't sure how things would go.
    I remember holding your hand for the first time,
    I knew then I wanted you and no other girl.
    I remember the way I truly felt.

    I remember standing close to you talking,
    I wished we could have more time to do it again,
    I remember taking your hand in mine and getting close to you.
    I didn't know what to say and didn't know how I felt.
    I remember the way I truly felt.

    I remember thinking what it would be like to lose you,
    I didn't know what to do.
    I remember hearing you like me so much.
    I couldn't imagine my life without you.
    This is the way I truly feel.

    The title says it all. "5 Scents Of Love tells" what you see, hear, feel, smell and even taste when you are in love...

    Poem That Describes Love Using Senses

    Looking into your eyes is like looking at the ocean
    You never get tired of it

    Feeling your hands touch me is like hugging a teddy bear
    You can do it forever

    Seeing your face is like looking at a beautiful portrait
    It gets better every time

    Smelling your scent is like sniffing a flower
    You can do it for all eternity

    Hearing your voice is like listening to my favorite song
    I could listen to it all day long

    Now I sit here and wait for that day
    when I become yours and you become mine

    Soon, I'll be able to get that special kiss
    I'll be able to look at you looking at me and smell your wonderful smell.
    Soon...

    Poem About Pain Of First Love

    First love is always the one
    that hurts the most.
    You want it to last,
    then you become like a ghost.
    Your first love is the one
    you will fall the hardest for,
    and your feelings for that
    person will forever be like an open door.
    A part of your heart
    will FOREVER be with them,
    even if you try to get it back,
    you will never be able to win!

  10. 8. My Love Story

    • By Ro
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2011

    This is about my first love. I met him in school when I was in 4th grade. I was a new kid at that time and I fell for him the minute I saw him! He was a 5th grader, so I rarely met him and never had the chance to talk with him...then a year later we were teammates at a school club and so we became friends but then another year passed by; he stopped being my friend for no reason...another year later, I find out he likes me! The poem tells my story. Read it if you please.

    Poem About An Unfolding Relationsihp

    When I first met you
    I didn't think twice
    in a few seconds I knew I was caught
    my heart beats in a thrice
    my mind can't think straight
    neither of us gave it a thought
    but together in love we fell

    rarely meeting
    never speaking
    is it even meant to be
    we were still young
    my feelings, slowly away they flew
    what about you?

    a year passes
    we change classes
    I was in 5th grade then
    while you where in 6th
    I tell you this is no myth

    as friends we start talking
    finally joking and fighting
    for the very silliest reasons
    I grew more fond of you
    with every passing season

    another year goes by
    with me you stop talking
    suddenly you start ignoring
    and I start wondering
    if I'd done something wrong
    instead of beginning to cry
    I stood up strong
    and deciding to do the same thing you do
    I began playing your game too

    I played this game of ours the best
    but in the end from your friends I find out
    that you ignored and never talked
    because you loved me so

    at first I didn't believe
    giving you a test
    I was finally relieved
    to realize it was all true
    your love came out of the blue!

    slowly everything you've hidden
    is beginning to show
    every time you pass by my side
    my heart used to glow
    and the angels would take me to cloud nine

    now time flies by
    happy memories unfolded
    new facts founded
    we grew older
    and by each passing minute we became closer
    our hearts grew fonder

    now that I'm in your class
    I get to see you more
    you're even clearer than before
    you never made me feel like broken glass
    boy, you're the best I've ever had

    I catch you looking at me
    noticing that twinkle in your eye
    you make me smile
    seriously, I bet my heart would run a mile!

  11. 9. Don't You Miss Me

    • By Billie
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems September 2008

    I am 11 years old, and I just wrote what I felt.

    Poem About The End Of A Relationship

    I sit and cry on my bed at home
    missing you it hurts
    why did you have to go
    go so far away, don't you miss me
    I wonder if you're looking at the same star I am
    and wishing we could be together
    I will never hold a hand of another guy
    why did you have to go
    you knew I loved you, I thought you loved me too
    you told me that all the time
    I am small and the world big
    surrounded by many things
    your mom wonders why you left her too

    yes, we may have fought, but I did not know that it hurt you so much
    we may look different, but inside we are one
    I'm giving up on everything
    I was the one who was wrong
    I miss you, I miss you so bad
    I won't forget you
    I hope you can here me
    our relationship got worse every day, I should of seen it coming
    I didn't get around to kiss you
    I feel so bad

    I wish I could see you again
    my daddy really did not like you much,
    but that has nothing to do with it
    just the sound of your voice will make me smile
    but you won't answer my calls or my cries
    people have seen a change in me
    I've been very quiet lately
    always thinking about you, thinking us on a dance floor
    and sharing our first kiss
    yes, that's how I pictured it
    I don't know about you and just saying this
    if your reading this, I love you

  12. 10. Sunlight

    • By Siegfred Ivan M. Delos Reyes
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2017

    I'm just a boy who is currently in love with a girl. Though sometimes I see her, I cannot talk to her because I'm afraid that I may fail. So, I just write some poems in a notebook and ask my friends to give them to her. And one day she talked to me and said that my poems were great. From there, I was inspired in making new poems about my love for her.

    Love For A Beautiful Girl

    This day I will never forget,
    The moment when we first met.
    At the balcony I saw you once.
    A beautiful sight, though seen at one glance.

    I will never forget that beautiful sight,
    A beautiful girl, behind is the sunlight.
    That moment kept my world from turning.
    That moment kept my heart from beating.

    But the time seems to go so fast.
    This moment never seems to last,
    But in my memories this will be kept forever,
    Until the time that we will be together.

    That day I will never forget
    A beautiful girl, behind is the sunset.
    That day my love for you was so true,
    Kept in my heart, my one and only you.

    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2010

    I'm just a dumb kid that fell in love. She doesn't love me. This is my first poem ever, and I didn't do any style, so no judging, please. These are just my feelings.

    I can't sleep at night because all I think about is you.
    I can't pay attention in school cause all I think about is you.
    My heart races when I get a text from you.
    I smile when I see you walk and I stare when I hear you talk.
    I get butterflies when I see you and when I kiss you too.
    Your smile makes me smile.
    Everything reminds me of you.
    I see a cloud and you are the first thought in my head.
    I see a movie, and it reminds me of you.
    I would do anything for you, and without you I'm nobody.
    I need you with me so we can spend the night together and just cuddle.
    I miss you.

    Thinking Of Him Poem

    Every time you tell me I love you, I feel loved
    Every time you hug me, I feel safe and warm
    Every time you hold me, I never want you to let me go
    Every time you kiss me, I get a burning need to kiss you more
    Every time you look into my eyes, the world seems to stop
    but every time I don't see you, I miss you a lot,
    and every time you're pissed, I think it's my fault.
    But when I ask you what's wrong,
    it turns out to be that some girl wants to break us up,
    and I love that you don't let it happen.
    Every time we hold hands, I feel like I can hold on to you forever!

  15. 13. Dethroned Heart's Angel

    • By Srikanth
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2011

    I am a young teenage boy. I fell in love with my classmate with whom I always quarrel. When I left the school I had a deep feeling that I had lost a precious thing in my life. I always wished to see her and try to propose, and I did it one day, which ended all our dealings; she rejected it and she never talked to me, even as a friend. This poem is a part of my life as this is the first poem I wrote when I was falling in love with her.

    Things become small including the sky;
    when I was just talking or even beside her;
    a feeling in the inner soul of flying high;
    always feel that "The time should stop forever."

    The colour of moon in night;
    appears at her cheek when she feels shy;
    she always appears so bright;
    even when she takes the path without light.

    The way she'll always be is pragmatic;
    it's quite different from all the epic;
    of the creator who lost all his power;
    in creating her cute, little lively flower.

    A misted thought comes in mind;
    by staring at her eye;
    I desire to change her to feel kind;
    it always turns a lie.

    She makes others even her friends;
    with sensitive, patience, kind heart;
    feel jealous with her amazing beauty;
    some are jealous, change their trends.

    I made it clear;
    that she is the one I have to pray;
    and I always fear;
    that she would leave and go away.

    In future when I reach my aim;
    I'll represent her with my fame.

    Things I know about her;
    gave me life and those;
    I understand about her;
    had made it to continue.

    I humbly have to say;
    I am the luckiest and also fortunate;
    in sense of the way;
    I am getting her love, it may be late.

  16. 14. Something About You

    • By Hillary Louise
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2015

    Is it love? Or is it lust? All I know is if you feel strongly about a person, don't give up.

    Poem About Feeling Strongly For Someone

    There is somethin' 'bout those eyes
    When you look at me and grin
    It seems to me like life just stops
    I hope it's not a sin
    To think about you all day long
    And to see you in my dreams
    To feel your arms around me
    Protecting me it seems
    When you reach out and grab my hand
    Or when your arm is around me
    There is nowhere I would rather be
    Than right here with you beside me
    I can hear you whisper in my ear
    I can feel your hand in mine
    There is something about the way you speak
    That makes me feel just fine
    When I think about you
    I wish you weren't so far away
    So maybe I could get the courage
    To look at you and say...
    Every time I hear that song
    Every time we speak
    I miss you like no other can
    When you kiss me on the cheek
    I feel like nothing can come and hurt me
    Like nothing can destroy
    This feeling deep inside me
    When I think about you, boy
    There is just somethin' 'bout the way you say
    Sweet dreams to me each night
    How you call me darling, toots, and dear
    It makes me feel just right
    I am always smiling all day long
    After I get to see your face
    I am always looking forward
    To the next time we'll embrace
    I love the way you laugh out loud
    The way you make me smile
    The way you're not afraid to hold my hand
    Even if only for a while
    I love the way you look at me
    And the way you always care
    The way you look me in the eyes
    And sometimes even stare
    I love the way you give me hugs
    That sometimes last forever
    I really hope this thing we have
    Will never grow to sever
    There is nowhere I would rather be
    Than right here with you beside me
