Poems about Teen 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.

However, for most teenagers, an intimate relationship with a boyfriend or girlfriend is one of the rites of passage. Unfortunately most teens do not yet have the skill and experience to make love last and much pain and heartache ensues. Even so, as they say, practice make perfect, and eventually most people build healthy and loving relationships.

  1. 1. I Want To Be...

    This poem is about wanting someone to be yours, to love and be loved.

    Poem About Wanting Someone To Be Yours

    I want to be your favorite hello,
    And I want to be your hardest goodbye.
    I want to be the one who never makes you cry,
    The one who puts that sparkle in your eye.

    I want to be the one you trust,
    And I want to be the one you can tell all your secrets to.
    I want to be the one always by your side,
    The one you're stuck to like glue.

    I want to be the one who makes you happy,
    And I want to be the one who makes you smile.
    I want to be the one waiting for you as you're walking down the aisle,
    The one to whom you'd say, "For you, I'd walk a thousand miles."

    I want to be the one you truly love,
    And I want to be the one who fills your heart.
    I want to be the one who's always there to hold you in the dark,
    The one who loved you from the very start.

  5. 3. 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 First 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.

  6. 4. Promise

    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 2011

    I still love this boy. And he acts like he loves me, so I always hope that one day I will be able to read him this poem and tell him that I wrote it for him.

    Will my love ever end?
    Will it ever fade?
    Will you finally realize,
    I am here to stay?

    I call you when I need you,
    Or when I wanna talk.
    I know you'll always be there,
    Just to take a walk.

    So don't you forget this,
    I love you so,
    but you need to promise,
    your love will always glow.

  7. 5. In Love With You

    • By Danni
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2009

    This is about my boyfriend. We've broken up now and it was hard; it really did tear me up, so I wanted to post this poem as sort of a memory of what we used to be. Enjoy...

    You're always in my thoughts.
    You're always in my dreams,
    And so a life without you would
    Just tear away at the seams.

    It's you who keeps me up all night,
    The one getting me through the day,
    And so it seems to me that there
    Is only one thing left to say.

    I don't know how to say it,
    To make it sound so true,
    So I'll say it how I feel it.
    I'm completely in love with you.

  8. 6. Love Is

    • By Jessica
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2015

    This is what I see as love in general.

    Metaphor Poem About Love

    Love is a walk in the rain at night,
    Two hands holding onto each other tight;
    Love is honey on a pair of lips,
    Onto a tender heart it drips;
    Love is a soft and gentle touch;
    Your heart, a child's hand may clutch,
    Love is a song that stains the air,
    Dead or not, it's always there;
    Love is both the sun and moon,
    Across the sky, like stars, it's strewn;
    Love is a tree of abundant fruit,
    Giving and serving with every new shoot;
    Love is a document, faithful and strong,
    To one another, now do you belong;
    Love is a river that rages with passion,
    Finding ways to calm pools no matter the fashion.

  9. 7. I Love You So....

    I wrote this poem thinking about my 9 month anniversary coming up with my boyfriend. He means the world to me, and I know no matter what happens, we'll always have each other. I hope others can relate to this.

    I think about you all the time.
    You're always in my head.
    I reread every text you send
    And remember what you said.

    I'm always here for you,
    Every hour of the day.
    I'll never let you down
    Or hurt you in any way.

    I love you more than anything.
    You're like the air I breathe,
    And when I look around,
    I know you're all I need.

    My sunshine on a cloudy day.
    That's one thing that you are,
    And even on the darkest nights,
    You are my brightest star.

  10. 8. I Adore You

    • By Julia Aronov
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems January 2017

    I wrote this poem about a boy who saw me in the halls every day for three years. He didn't say a word to me, but one day he messaged me. I wasn't quite sure how to react to the situation, so I just went along with it. I had absolutely no idea that he would end up meaning so much to me. Little did I know, he felt the same way.

    I Can't Get You Out Of My Mind

    I can't seem to get you out of my mind.
    The way you walk, the way you talk, the way your eyes shine.
    I can't seem to understand the way you bend your head to listen to every word I say
    And the way things between us are never dull or gray.

    I can't seem to get you out of my mind.
    The way you listen, the way you react, the way your smile never dies.
    I can't seem to explain the fullness that I feel.
    Sometimes looking at you, it all seems so surreal.

    I can't seem to get you out of my mind.
    The way my heart races when I see you, the way I don't want to say goodbye.
    I can't seem to fathom why you talk to me as much as you do,
    But I love it, and I can honestly say I adore you, too.

  11. 9. I Love You

    • By Jessica
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2012

    I wrote this poem when I had my first boyfriend, and this is how I felt.

    First Love Feelings

    I melt when you
    I can't breathe when you
    Everything else fades away when you
    touch me.
    I think I might fly when you
    kiss me.
    All I know when you're around is
    I love you.

  12. 10. Love's Never Forgotten

    Some people might say because I'm young I don't know about love, but I think that love's the strongest with teenagers. This poem describes a whole relationship I had and how the love will never be forgotten between us.

    The true meaning of love, do you truly know?
    The love in my eyes, does it still show?

    I saw you, then wanted and finally had you.
    All so fast, too good to be true.

    Every day is the day to God
    That I pray that love is never forgotten.

    I ask myself, then ask once more,
    Will it heal or forever be sore?

    You opened my eyes to a lot of new things.
    You took me high and gave me wings.

    Our love for each other never ends.
    Maybe not lovers, but always friends.

    We argue, we fight and disagree,
    But all it does is hurt you and me.

    No matter what you say or what you do,
    Forever and always I'll truly love you.

  13. 11. I Hope You Know

    I just wrote this poem for my boyfriend as a reminder that I really do love him, no matter what.

    I hope you know
    I really do care.
    I might not show it often,
    Which makes me unfair.

    I think you're beautiful
    In every way.
    I love you a lot,
    And for you to stay, I always pray.

    I hope you know
    When we are mad
    I hope and pray
    We fix the bad.

    It hurts so much
    When we fight.
    We all have
    Our good and bad, all right.

    I hope you know
    I pray for us
    To stay together
    And not to fuss.

    You're my only,
    My first.
    I like that I can say
    My first was my only.

    I hope you know
    I've been through a lot.
    I know you have, too.
    I know that together we can get through.

    You make me smile
    When I have a bad day,
    And you don't have to do much
    But say, "Hey."

    I hope you know
    The reason for this poem
    Was to say I love you
    And I care in every way.

  14. 12. Speechless

    • By Bernadette Molina
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2011

    I never worried about love until I met my boyfriend, 100 miles away. This is how love literally takes your breath away. Never give up on what can't be seen.

    If I'm anywhere around you, I can't believe
    I've got to push you away to think, to breathe
    I look at your face, I try to inhale,
    I try again and seem to fail.

    I can't even think of what I should do
    the fact that we're together seems untrue.
    You say, "I love you." I look into your eyes.
    I take a step back because my heart just flies.

    I feel excited as he takes me by the waist.
    I can still remember how my heart raced.
    I can't think of anything to way
    as his lips come my way.

    Can't do anything but stand still
    as my dreams are fulfilled.
    I feel nothing but bliss
    as we kiss.

    He continues to hold me tight.
    Now I can't let him out my sight.
    This ecstasy I can't control
    as emotions begin to unroll.

    I don't feel wrong, I feel completely right
    as I continue to see him throughout the night.
    It's like something that was meant to be,
    like a gift from the heavens, that was sent to me.

  15. 13. I Want To Be The Girl

    • By Courtney Lynn
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2011

    I wrote this for a special someone. He is the most special man in my life with the exception of my father and brother. We aren't dating, but I hope that one day we will.

    I wanna be the girl who...
    You call just to say goodnight
    When she's crying, you wrap her in your arms and hold her tight
    When she's scared or lonely you tell her "You'll be fine"
    When she loses sight of you, you gently whisper, "You'll always be mine."

    I wanna be the girl who...
    Tells you you're her hero every single day
    Never gives up, but says, "Baby, let come what may"
    Means the world to you too
    Proudly says "Yep! That's MY man, Mr. Faithful and True!"

    I wanna be the girl who...
    Is the only one allowed to kiss your lips.
    Listens to your advice and helpful little tips.
    Won't ever let anything cause her love for you to bend
    Stands by your side faithfully till the end.

    I love how you always understand
    I love it when you hold my hand
    I love it when you make me smile
    And how you never make me cry.

    I love how we can talk for hours
    And how the smallest kiss has so much power.

    I love that you always brighten my day
    I love the random things you do.

  17. 15. Love Since Kindergarten

    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2014

    This poem is about a guy. I stated dating him in 8th grade, but I have liked him since kindergarten. I hope we last a long time.

    It all began at a young age.
    You freed me from my tiny cage.
    I began to like you more and more.
    It was like I opened a whole new door.

    I think about you every day.
    In your arms I want to stay.
    I lose all thought when I'm with you.
    I hope our love decides to stay true.

    You're the reason I'm still here.
    I will always keep you dear.
    I hope you feel the same way.
    And I hope you plan to stay.

    I really love you, and I always will.
    I loved you then, and I love you still.
    I hope we stay together.
    I hope we stay now and forever.

  18. 16. Nothing Could Measure

    • By Whitney
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2011

    I love to write poems. This one I wrote for my amazing boyfriend I have been dating for 4 months now.

    No ocean can fathom the depth of my feelings
    Nor can the sky above
    I love you more than you can imagine
    Nothing can measure our love

    No fire burns brighter than the light you emit
    I couldn't compare to lips so sweet
    Or the feel of your tongue on my neck
    Nothing can measure our heat

    No physical wound can closely relate
    I know this must sound sane
    That if you were to lie, cheat, or leave
    Nothing would measure the pain

    No ocean can fathom the depth of my feelings
    Nor can the sky above
    I love you more than you can imagine
    Nothing can measure our love

  19. 17. Many Laughs

    I actually wrote this about my boyfriend. I still haven't gotten the courage to show him.

    Remembering When We First Met

    Many laughs we've had,
    and all of which were great.
    It all started weeks ago,
    us brought together by fate.
    The day that I first met you,
    my heart did skip a beat.
    I had to steady myself
    because you swept me off my feet.
    I saw your dazzling smile,
    and heat rushed to my face.
    I haven't blushed that much
    since I ran the 5k race.
    I know I love you so
    and want to see you more,
    and at the slightest thought of losing you,
    my heart drops to the floor,
    so stay with me, my darling.
    Hold me tight and close.
    Forever is a long time,
    but it is you I want the most.

  20. 18. My Heart

    • By Yesenia Gomez
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2011

    This started off as an English assignment. My teacher told the class to write a poem about a very important person/thing or time we experienced. So I made it a little bit of both; this poem is about the time when I met the guy I love most and every time I had with him. What is in this poem is what I experienced when I first met him and every time I was with him. Though I do not experience these feelings now, I still do love this guy, not the same way I used to, but it is still a form of love.

    Why did you do this?
    You did this to me.
    You stole my heart,
    can't you see?

    From the first time I saw you,
    the first time you smiled.
    The way you lit up the room,
    my heart went wild.

    When you look at me,
    my heart skips a beat.
    I become speechless,
    when our eyes meet.

    You took my heart,
    you take my breath.
    So now I will love you,
    until my death.

  21. 19. Someone For Change

    • By Abegail A. Cardiente
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2016

    I have so many pimples, and because of that, I've felt alone and neglected, like an unwanted person that no one knew. I lost my hope for a better life until one day I finally found someone who told me the beauty of life I had.

    Thank You For Making Me Feel Loved

    Sometimes I've felt alone and neglected,
    unwanted and useless.
    Sometimes I've looked for someone,
    but I've always failed to find that one.

    Until the day you came along
    and you whispered a sweet song.
    Then I wondered and I smiled,
    is he the one I've been looking for?

    From that day, everything has changed.
    You made me feel important.
    You taught me to smile in the midst of trials,
    and you told me the reality of life.

    You filled me with so much happiness.
    You have loved me even in my worst.
    Thank you for changing my life.
    Thank you for giving me such love.

  22. 20. I Can't Believe What I've Found

    Hey, my name is Danyal Conner and I am 17 years old and I love to write poetry. Sometimes you only find something when you stop looking. Looking for love in all the wrong places.

    Finding Love

    I was searching for something,
    but I didn't know where to look.
    I searched for so long,
    and all my time it took.
    What was I looking for,
    or what was looking for me?
    My eyes I kept open,
    but I just couldn't see.
    It was gnawing at my heart
    and ripping through my brain.
    I didn't know what was wrong.
    I thought I was going insane.
    I was tired of looking for something
    that I thought was impossible to find.
    It was tearing me apart.
    I prayed to God to give me a sign.
    I waited and waited,
    but the sign never came.
    Finally, one day it happened.
    My heart completely changed
    I found what I was looking for,
    but I wasn't looking for this.
    Am I sure this is what I was looking for?
    Or was it something that I missed?
    When I looked into the eyes
    of this something I thought was fake,
    I saw an angel looking back,
    and my heart it did take.
    This something that I've been looking for
    was a true gift from God above.
    The missing piece I found was you and your love.
