Romantic Verses
Don't say you love me unless you really mean it,
because I might do something crazy like believe it.

Two doves meeting in the sky
Two loves hand in hand eye to eye
Two parts of a loving whole
Two hearts and a single soul
Two stars shining big and bright
Two fires bringing warmth and light
Two songs played in perfect tune
Two flowers growing into bloom
Two doves gliding in the air
Two loves free without a care
Two parts of a loving whole
Two hearts and a single soul

True love's the gift which God has given
To man alone beneath the heaven:
It is not fantasy's hot fire,
Whose wishes soon as granted fly; 
It liveth not in fierce desire, 
With dead desire it doth not die; 
It is the secret sympathy,
The silver link, the silken tie,
Which heart to heart and mind to mind
In body and in soul can bind.

Our love is like a lovely bridge
Between your heart and mine
A bridge we've built down through the years
Just to our own design.

May the sun bring you new energies by day,
May the moon softly restore you by night,
May the rain wash away any worries you may have,
And the breeze blow new strength into your being,
And then, all the days of your life,
May you walk gently through the world,
and know its beauty and yours.
heart to heart and mind to mind.

Romantic Verses continue with...

My love for you is so passionate and true 
I wish I could prove this to you 
I will climb the highest mountain to touch the sky
And bring down that rainbow so high in the sky.

Oh if I could prove to you that my love is real
I'd swim that river oh so wide to prove 
That you are my joy and pride 
And my love is so real.

But all these things are so impossible for me 
I cannot climb a mountain oh so high and 
Bring down that rainbow from the sky, and no
I can't swim that river that is oh so wide.

But to prove my love is true and
I really want to be with you is say 
I love you and mean it with all my heart!

Continuing the Romantic Verses here's "I Believe"

I believe in miracles
and dreams that will come true.
I believe in tender moments
and friendship, through and through.

I believe in stardust
and moonbeams all aglow.
I believe there's magic
and more there than we know.

I believe in reaching out
and touching from the heart.
I believe that if we touch
a gift we can impart.

I believe that if you cry
your tears are not in vain.
And when you're sad and lonely,
others know your pain.

I believe that when we laugh
a sparkle starts to shine.
And I just know that spark will spread
from more hearts than just mine.

I believe that hidden
in the quiet of the night,
there's magic moths and gypsies
a fairy and a sprite.

I believe that if you dance
the dances of your heart,
that greater happiness will find
a brand new way to start.

I believe the gifts you have
are there for you to share
And when you give them from the heart,
the whole world knows you care.

I believe that if you give,
even just to one,
that gift will grow in magnitude
before the day is done.

I believe that comfort comes
from giving part of me.
And if I share with others,
there's more for all to see.

I believe that love is still
the greatest gift of all
and when it's given from the heart
the gift is never small.

Romantic Verses and Poems

In melody divine,
My heart it beats to rapturous love,
I long to call you mine.

© V4C 

When you are sad.....I will dry your tears.
When you are scared.....I will comfort your fears.
When you are worried.....I will give you hope.
When you are confused.....I will help you cope.
And when you are lost.....And can't see the light,
I shall be your beacon.....Shining ever so bright.

© V4C 

A hundred hearts would be too few
To carry all my love for you.

© V4C 

Look into the eyes of a man in love
and you will find the soul
of the woman that loves him
Place your hand in the palm of his
and you will fell the pulse of her open heart

Lay your head upon his chest
and in hearing the beating of his heart
discover the seductiveness
of her passion's sighs 

© V4C 

True love is a sacred flame
That burns eternally,
And none can dim its special glow
Or change its destiny.
True love speaks in tender tones
And hears with gentle ear,
True love gives with open heart
And true love conquers fear.
True love makes no harsh demands
It neither rules nor binds,
And true love holds with gentle hands
The hearts that it entwines.

Love Poem
by Jesse G. Ferrer 
(California, US)
To Abigail

Oh my love Abigail, without you my soul derails.
My thoughts carry me to that place we met, where you caught me in your net. 
A cup of coffee we shared, life stories we compared.
The look in your eyes was honest, not a lie. 
For you my love I'd proudly die.
There's much in life I do not know, 
But one thing is certain, this love will grow.

let me bring you on a date
by shandor collins 
(cork city ireland )

We must meet up again 
Last time it was a mistake 
Girl I just wish it was fake 
Now girl let me take you on a date 

Yo I am dressed in my tux 
I am trying my best to draw out my looks 
Lets go, we can go slow, 
We will get front row 
I believe so. Actually I know 
I am the producer of this show 
It was supposed to be a surprise
I was waiting for this day to say 
I love you. Hope that’s ok 
If not I'll run away. 
You will break my heart 
And I'll never forget this day 
But it’s ok to say 
Will you enjoy the rest of the night 
And maybe we will be friends 
Until the very end..
Love can always drive you around

Short Love Poem
by Adrian "Sonny" Carpenter 
(Stoke-on-Trent UK)
You Charm Me

You charm me with every glancing look,
You be-witch me with your touch,
Your love is simply magical,
I cannot express to you how much,
Your generosity is overwhelming,
And your compassion warms my heart,
I remember every last kiss we share,
That keeps me going whilst we're apart,
I love you with every part of my being,
And will do so forever more,
I cannot wait to spend our lives together,
Of this I’m completely sure

Money and Love Poem
by Matrik s/o girish sharma 
(Udaipur, Rajasthan, India -313001) 


I love money forever but not more than my love,
Just because I cannot get true love using money 
But when my love is with me then I can earn more money
That's why I love money forever but not more than my love

Love Confession Poem
by Adrian 'Sonny' Carpenter 
(Stoke on Trent)

What you are to me 

You light the path to my future,
You close the chapters of my past,
You fill my life again with promise,
And a love I know will last,
You bring a smile to every morning,
And a happiness to every day,
You are the love for which I have been searching,
I love you more than words can say,
I miss you so much when you're away from me,
You are always on my mind,
You are perfect in every way to me,
You are gorgeous, loving and kind,
Although we have only shared a small part,
Of our lives together it would seem,
But I feel I've known you a lifetime,
You are the woman of my dreams,
I love you baby with my whole heart,
Your soul and mine entwine,
You have my word, my vow, my commitment,
To love you until the end of time

Love is Poem

Love is...

A smile 
A hug
A kiss 
A song

That special someone
The one who cares for you
The one who loves you
The one you love

Warm and safe
A burning candle
A world to explore

Good times
Fun times
Funny time
The times you love

A box of chocolates 
A bunch of red roses

My love is you

My last wish
by Saky 

The world is nearing its end
And all my life I had loved you
Let it not end even when the world ends
Lets take it beyond the sky and the blue sea
beyond all attachments to human life
just our souls, just you and me..

(Dedicated to someone really special)

I see the finest embodiment
of soul and mind,of love and passion
of heart and desire, of truth and direction
You can light the darkest of the worlds
with your eternal spirit, your ever-glowing gleam.
You are my light, my heart's only desire
Without you,this world will mean nothing to me
All the happiness of the world will shrink
and there will be no peace
and all I want is PEACE....

Valentine Poem
by Peter Stewart 
(Dumbarton, Scotland)

The Universe.

The universe consists of Planets
and Stars that shine so bright,
Each one of them made here on Earth
by lovers holding tight.
If there is no love the Stars go out
and that's the reason why.
Man must make love every night
Or ALL the Stars would die.

Peter Stewart

Scientifically untrue, but a good chat up line, Peter

Touching Red Rose Poem
by James 
(Woking, UK)

This is a poem that went the rounds in 2009 and I thought it appropriate for inclusion on the Valentines Page and The Funeral Page

Red roses were her favorites,
Her name was also Rose.
And every year her husband sent them,
Tied with pretty bows.
The year he died, the roses
Were delivered to her door.
The card said, “Be my Valentine”,
Like all the years before.

Each year he sent her roses,
And the note would always say,
“I love you even more this year,
Than last year on this day.
My love for you will always grow,
With every passing year.”
She knew this was the last time
That the roses would appear.

She thought, he ordered roses
In advance before this day.
Her loving husband did not know,
That he would pass away.
He always liked to do things early,
Way before the time.
Then, if he got too busy,
Everything would work out fine.

She trimmed the stems, and placed them
In a very special place.
She sat the vase of roses
By the portrait of his face.
She would sit for hours,
In her husband’s favorite chair.
While staring at his picture,
And the roses sitting there.

Romantic Verses for Valentine's Day

A year went by, and it was hard
To live without her mate.
With loneliness and solitude,
That had become her fate.
And then on Valentines
Just as before,
The doorbell rang, and there were roses,
Sitting by her door.

She brought the roses in, and then
Just looked at them in shock.
Then, went to get the telephone,
To call the florist shop.
The owner answered, and then
She asked him to explain,
Who would do this to her,
Causing so much pain?

“I know your husband passed away,
More than a year ago,”
The owner said, “I knew you’d call,
And you would want to know.
The flowers you received today,
Were paid for in advance.
Your husband always planned ahead,
He left nothing to chance.

Romantic Verses for Valentine's Day

There is a standing order,
That I have on file down here,
And he has paid, well in advance,
You’ll get them every year.
There also is another thing,
That I think you should know,
He wrote a special little card…
He did this years ago.

Then, should ever I find out
That he’s no longer here,
That’s the card…that should be sent,
To you the following year.”
She thanked him and hung up the phone,
Her tears now flowing hard.
Her fingers shaking, as she slowly
Reached to get the card.

Inside the card, she saw that he
Had written her a note.
Then, as she stared in total silence,
This is what he wrote…
“Hello my love, I know it’s been
A year since I’ve been gone,
I hope it hasn’t been too hard
For you to overcome.

I know it must be lonely,
And the pain is very real.
For if it was the other way,
I know how I would feel
The love we shared made everything
So beautiful in life.
I loved you more than words can say,
You were the perfect wife.

You were my friend and lover,
You fulfilled my every need.
I know it’s only been a year,
But please try not to grieve.
I want you to be happy,
Even when you shed your tears.
That is why the roses
Will be sent to you for years.

When you get these roses,
Think of all the happiness,
That we had together,
And how both of us were blessed.
I have always loved you
And I know I always will.
But, my love, you must go on,
You have some living still.

Please…try to find happiness,
While living out your days.
I know it is not easy,
But I hope you find some ways.
The roses will come every year,
And they will only stop,
When your door’s not answered,
When the florist stops to knock.

He will come five times that day,
In case you have gone out.
But after his last visit,
He will know without a doubt,
To take the roses to the place,
Where I’ve instructed him,
And place the roses where we are,
Together once again.

Lost Love Poem
by jacqueline 
(Norwich, UK)

when i look into your eyes

when i look into your eyes 
the world changes around me,
i feel dizzy and i have to smile,
your eyes are like the color of a rainbow,
of blue, orange, purple and black,
your smile is like something 
too beautiful for me to imagine 
but don't worry now that you 
are gone away from me and you feel alone 
always try to remember me because 
me and you will feel 
like as if we are together

 for Birthday, Engagement, Wedding, Anniversary, Valentine, Get Well, Missing You
by Allison 
(Chatham UK)

I thought I'd submit these to you. I've gathered them over the years

I may not always tell you 
What I'm feeling deep inside 
The emotions and the feelings 
That I sometimes tend to hide . 
But I'm really proud and pleased 
To know that you are mine 
And I hope that you still love me 
My Darling Valentine 


Love is a smile, a tear or a touch
Love says so little but means so much.
Love is forever I give it to you
For you must know I think the world of you.

Happy Anni, Birthday, Valentine


Forever my darling our love will be true 
Always and forever I'll love just you 
Just promise me darling your love in return 
Make this fire in my soul dear Forever burn 

Romantic Verses
I love my life 
Because it gave me you 
I love you 
Because you are my life 
(Happy Valentine's Day)
(Happy Birthday Darling)
(Happy (XXth) Anniversary, 
a step on the road to our 100th Anniversary)

Roses are red, 
violets are blue 
I made this card just for you 
It's not the neatest, 
it wouldn't pass a test 
But it's made with love--
that makes it the best 


Love is in my heart today
As I send this message just to say.
I treasure you more than you can know
And hope these words will help to show.
That you mean the world to me and no one else will ever be.
More in love with you than me. 


Thank you Alison. You've recognized that many poems can be used for several occasions as your heading suggests and, for example, a sister poem could be for a cousin or a mother poem for a father, and so on
