1. How Do I Love Thee? by Elizabeth Barrett Browning

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach when feeling out of sight.
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of every day's
The quietest need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seem to lose
With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath,
Smile, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose, 
I shall but love thee better after death.

2. When I Too Long Have Looked Upon Your Face by Edna St. Vincent Millay

When I too long have looked upon your face
Wherein for me a brightness unobscured
Save by the mist of brightness has its place, 
And terrible beauty not to be endured, 
I turn away reluctant from your light,
And stand irresolute, a mind undone,
A silly, dazzle thing deprived of sight
From having looked too long upon the sun.
Then is my daily light a narrow room
In which a little while, uncertainly,
Surrounded by impenetrable gloom,
Among familiar things grow strange to me
Making my way, I pause, and feel and hark,
Till I become accustomed to the dark.

3. Another Valentine by Wendy Cope

Today we are obliged to be romantic
And think of yet another valentine.
We know the rules and we are both pedantic:
Today's the day we have to be romantic. 
Our love is old and unsure, not new and frantic.
You know I'm yours and I know you are mine.
And saying that has made me feel romantic,
My dearest love, my darling valentine.

4. I Love You by Ella Wheeler Cox

I love your lips when they're wet with mine
And red with a wild desire; 
I love your eyes when the lovelight lies
Lit with a passionate fire.
I love your arms when the warm white flesh
Touches mine in a fond embrace;
I love your hair when the strands enmesh
Your kisses against my face.

Nor for me the cold, calm kiss
Of a virgin's bloodless love,
Nor for me the saint's white bliss,
Nor the heart of a spotless dove.
But give me the love that so freely gives,
And laughs at the whole world's blame,
With your body so young and warm in my arms,
It sets my poor heart aflame.

So kiss me sweet with your warm wet mouth,
Still ruby with red wine,
And say with a fervor born of the South
That your body and soul are mine.
Clasp me close in your warm young arms,
While the pale stars shine above,
And we'll live our whole young live away
In the joys of living love.

5. If Thou Must Love Me by Elizabeth Barrett Browning

If thou must love me, let it be for naught
Except for love's sake only. Do not say
I love her for her smile... her looks...her way
Of speaking gently, ...for a trick of thought
That falls in well with mine, and certes brought
A sense of pleasant ease on such a day --
For these things in themselves, Beloved, may
Be changed, or changed for thee, --and love so wrought,
Maybe unwrought so. Neither loves me for
Thine own dear pity's wiping my cheeks dry. --
A creature might forget to weep, who bore
Thy comfort long, and lose thy love thereby!
But love me for love's sake, that evermore
Thou may'st love on, through love's eternity.

6. I Am Not Yours by Sara Teasdale

I am not yours, not lost in you,
Not lost, although I long to be
Lost as a candlelit at noon,
Lost as a snowflake in the sea.

You love me, and I found you still
A spirit beautiful and bright,
Yet I am I, who long to be
Lost as a light is lost in light.

Oh plunge me deep in love - put out
My senses, leave me deaf and blind,
Swept by the tempest of your love,
A taper in a rushing wind.

7. Love's Coming by Ella Wheeler Cox

She had looked for his coming as warriors come, 
With the clash of arms and the bugle's call;
But he came instead with a stealthy tread, 
Which she did not hear at all.

She had thought how his warrior would blaze in the sun,
As he rode like a prince to claim his bride:
In the sweet dim light of the falling night
She found him at her side.

She had dreamed about how the gaze of his strange, bold eye
Would wake her heart to a sudden glow:
She found in his face the familiar grace
Of a friend, she used to know.

She had dreamed how his coming would stir her soul,
As the ocean is stirred by the wild storm's strife:
He brought her the balm of a heavenly calm,
And a peace which crowned her life.

8. Serenade by Djuna Barnes

Three paces down the shore low sound the lute,
The better that my longing you may know;
I'm not asking you to come,
But--can't you go?

Three words, "I love you", and the whole is said--
The greatness of it throbs from sun to sun;
I'm not asking you to walk,
But--can't you run?

Three paces in the moonlight's glow I stand,
And here within the twilight beats my heart.
I'm not asking you to finish,
But--to start.

9. To My Dear And Loving Husband by Anne Bradstreet

If ever two were one, then surely we.
If ever man were loved by wife, then thee;
If ever wife was happy in a man,
Compare me with ye women if you can.
I prize thy love more than whole mines of gold,
Or all the riches that the East doth hold.
My love is such that rivers cannot quench,
Nor ought but love from thee give recompense.
Thy love is such I can no way repay;
The heavens reward thee manifold, I pray.
Then while we live, in love let's so persevere,
That when we live no more we may live ever.

10. The Kiss by Sara Teasdale

Before you kiss me only winds of heaven
Had to kiss me, and the tenderness of rain--
Now you have come, how can I care for kisses
Like theirs again?

I sought the sea, she sent her winds to meet me,
They surged about me singing of the south--
I turned my head away to keep still holy
Your kiss upon my mouth.

And swift sweet rains of shining April weather
Found not my lips where living kisses are;
I bowed my head lest they put out my glory
As the rain puts out a star.

I am my love's and he is mine forever,
Sealed with a seal and safe forevermore--
Think you that I could let a beggar enter
Where a king stood before?

11. Loving An XBox vs Me by Sarah Allen

I don't have a controller,
And I don't have a screen,
I don't need to be plugged in,
I'm not grey and green.

I can't make sound effects,
Or visuals that are fantastic,
You can't put me on a shelf,
Because I'm not made of plastic.

However, I do have curves,
Will keep you entertained all the same,
You can't insert a disc,
But we can make our own little game.

12. How You Love Me by KYB

How you love me 
I'm grateful you know
Through the years
You show and show

With my moody side
You do let it slide
And you still love
my growing backside

You've suffered through
my cooking pains
Look on the bright side
no weight you gained

You keep that smile
That brightens my world
You let me know
I'm still your girl.

13. My favorite snack

My only favorite snack.

Now, you don't need to smack.
Lol... love you so much.

14. You And I Are In Love

You and I are in love.
So when you laugh,
I laugh.

I'm going to miss you.

15. How did you get to be such an amazing man?

How did you get to be such an amazing man?
Never have I seen someone who can do all you can.
I look at you and gasp in awe,
You are the best that I ever saw.
You are the perfect man for any woman,
You're just so good at making me grin.
Everything you do is so perfect for me,
You are precisely my cup of tea.
Now I suppose I should give credit where credit is due,
And remind myself that I did a great job re-training you!

16. I Miss You

I miss you when you're not near me,
I long for you when we're apart,
Never before have I met such a man,
Who could so completely heal my heart?
I had many days of pain and sorrow,
And then you came along.
These words just can't express,
What I truly wish to say,
So you'll just have to trust me,
And my fiancé!

17. Sweet Misery by Susanna Rose

When I fell in love with you,
it made a wreck of me.
I feel so dazed and dizzy
that it's hard for me to see.
I get too hot and sweat a lot.
I hardly eat a bite.
My pulse beat like a kettle drum
and keeps me up all night.
My stomach hurts and I go down
as if I've got the bends.
Love's causing me sweet misery--
I hope it never ends!

18. To Extremes

You come to mind morning,
nightly, and noon,
I wish I could see you
this minute or soonly...

So you're probably right if
you're thinking it seems like
I'm taking this missing-you
things to extremes!

19. Funny Love Poems for You

I tried to write funny love poems for you,
I attempted as well some cute and silly ones too.
But it seems I haven't yet learned how to rhyme,
So, I beg of you honey, please give me some time.
One of these days I will figure it out,
Until then I hope that you will not pout,
Trust me, my man, you really do inspire me,
I'm just not good with words, as you can plainly see.
It's not that easy to come up with love poems, you know,
So, for now, I'll just find another way for my love to show.

20. Your Love Is Better

Your love is better than chocolate
or an intoxicating wine,
It's better than cinnamon
I have to make you mine!
Your love is better than caramel
or any liqueur-filled truffle,
It's better than a hazelnut,
Oh, I love you double!
Your love is better than lush berries
or a ripe, succulent peach,
It's better than sugar,
My heart's within your reach!
Your love is better than sangria,
or a sweet, fizzy lemonade,
It's better than any nectar
for you, my heart was made!

21. I Miss You Like Crazy

I miss you like crazy
When you are not around to do that crazy stuff we use to do
When you are not here to hold my hands for a  long walk
When you are not with me to kiss and cuddle me like you use to
I miss you like crazy
When you are not around to call me pretty
When you are not here to tell me how my food taste
When you are not next to me to pray with me
I miss you like crazy
When all the crazy stuff we do becomes a memory
Till I see you again. I miss you like crazy.

22. Dreams of Distant Lovers

I live for the moment my dreams begin
Because that's when I dream of you.
The day means nothing without you beside me
But when night falls, I'll dream your love anew.
Until I can finally have you in my arms
My dreams will have to see me through.
I'll be with you for hours in my dreams
Until the fall of the morning dew.
When we're finally together again
That's the moment my dreams come true.

I miss you, my man.
I miss you because you complete me
I miss you because you smile at me
I miss you because you make me feel whole
I miss you because you lighten up my soul
I miss you because you make me feel loved
I miss you because you are all I think of all-day
I miss you because I want you back home
All I could do is nothing but wait.

23. Piece of You

When you said you had to go,
I knew I'd never make it through
Unless I had a piece of you
To help me make it through the day
And help me keep the tears at bay.

So, I keep a bit of you
Inside my heart through all I do
So, when I end up feeling blue,
It's there to brighten up my mood.

A bit or your laughter, your smile, too,
It's here inside my heart so true.
I keep it close and hold it tight
Because you're my sweetest
love and light.

24. Do Not Forget Me

Do not forget me, my man
For your presence lightens up my soul
For your smile gives me hope
For your support gives me strength
​​​​​​Do not forget me, my man
For your time gives me relevance's
For your prayers give me luck
For your advice gives me a breakthrough
All I want is for you not to forget me while you are away.

25. Sun and Moon by Del Kayler

You were like the sun that brought light
Into my cold, dark, and lifeless night.
You made me realize that no matter what I do,
My life will always revolve around you.

Just when I thought that darkness was all around,
You showed me your light and picked me up off the ground.
In your arms, love, and care is what I found.
With you, peace and ease surround.

We are like the sun and the moon,
Far in every way, but I wish to see you soon.
We are miles and miles apart,
But never forget we are always connected in our hearts. 

26. The Distance

The distance they say is unhealthy for new lovers
Distance is what I fear the most in our relationship
Distance is what I think will separate us
But this distance I fear has unveiled the
Part of me that love you the most
Distance has helped me discover my degree of loyalty to you
Distance has helped me remember the memory we share
But this distance, I don't want to be lost in it for long
I miss you so much, my king. Please come back home.

27. Distance Is Not Scary

Distance is not scary when you are far away but still care
Distance is not scary when you make me feel I am the only one in your life
Distance is not scary when you always call to hear from me
Distance is not scary when you make me feel you miss me from afar
Distance is not scary when you make me feel safe even when I am scared
Distance is not scary doesn't mean you will not come home back to me
Because your presence alone gives me all the happiness in the world.

28. Long Distance Love by Brandon

How do you wait
At least 3 years
For a possible soul mate
But have no fears

For you, I open my gate
And wish that you were here
But you live in another state
Yet another reason to fear

But I fear because I care
And I care because I love you
It's a kind of love that is rare
And shared by very few

My love, in every form, is undying
And to lose you in any way, would mean I'm dying
You are a gift greater than everything
And for you, I'll do anything

I'll wait for you, over these next few years
And together we'll overcome our greatest fears.

29. My Love

When I close my eyes
I can hear your voice
I can see your face
I can feel the touch of your lips as we kiss.

When I open my eyes
I see an empty room
Without your beautiful smile lighting it up
And I'm missing you so much it hurts.

I ache to hold you
To be in your arms
To hear your laughter.

Know that even as far apart as we are
My love for you
Is as strong as ever.

30. Steadfast

The miles are long, and far and wide,
But my love for you will never subside.
My heart will continue strong and true,
Steadfast in my love for you.
You never need to fret or fear;
It hurts to be so far from you, 
But a love like ours will make it through.
Keep holding on a little longer;
Our love will keep up going stronger.
