  1. There are three great things in this world:

The first thing is for you to love someone.
The second thing is for someone to love you back
And the third greatest thing is for the first and second thing to happen at the same time.

  1. Love At First Sight

They’re both convinced
that a sudden passion joined them.
Such certainty is beautiful,
but uncertainty is more beautiful still.

Since they’d never met before, they’re sure
that there’d been nothing between them.
But what’s the word from the streets, staircases, hallways—
perhaps they’ve passed by each other a million times?

I want to ask them
if they don’t remember—
a moment face to face
in some revolving door?
perhaps a “sorry” muttered in a crowd?
a curt “wrong number” caught in the receiver?—
but I know the answer.
No, they don’t remember.

– Wislawa Szymborska, poets.org

  1. Like an old photograph

Time can make a feeling fade
But the memory of a first love
Never fades away.

  1. Love At First Sight

When first we touched,
My heart flew high,
On gossamer wings through a cloudless sky.
They said it was built upon a lie.
They told me my feelings would surely fade.
Passion would flare, and foes would be made.
Can you not put the past behind?
True love can change a river’s course
Or pierce the strongest vault with ease.
True love can turn coal into gold
Or tame the tempest to a balmy breeze.
Quite some time has passed since then:
People no longer criticize.
For now they see that truth exists
Where once there might have been only lies.
Still my feelings are the same today
As they were on that very first,
For when we touch, my heart still flies on gossamer wings through cloudless skies.

– Danielle C. Thomas

  1. When I Walked In The Room,

I saw your face.
When you smiled at me,
I knew you were the one.
When you looked at me with your beautiful brown eyes,
I knew you were feeling me.
When we touched our lips together,
I knew this wasn’t a dream.
When I left that night,
I said to myself this was love at first sight.

  1. Love at first sight,

Is there such a thing?
At first I didn’t believe,
Thinking it was a dream. Then one day out of nowhere,
My dreams of love came true.
From the moment our eyes met,
My love at first sight was you. Although I did not believe,
Love at first sight did exist.
You proved me wrong on that day,
Even before our first kiss.
-Danny Shaw

  1. I Saw You

I saw you as I passed last night,
Framed in a sky of gold;
And through the sun’s fast paling light
You seemed a queen of old,
Whose smile was light to all the world
Against the crowding dark.
And in my soul a song there purled—
Re-echoed by the lark.

I saw you as I passed last night,
Your tresses burnished gold,
While in your eyes a happy bright
Gleam of your friendship told.
And I went singing on my way;
On, on into the dark.
But in my heart still shone the day,
And still—still sang the lark.

– Joshua Henry Jones Jr., poets.org

  1. Do you believe in love at first sight?

I did not, that is until last night.
I don’t know why, I simply cannot explain,
But the feeling was real, do you feel the same? The last thing I want to do,
Is scare you away.
But I cannot deny my feelings,
That I felt yesterday. What I want to know is, how do you feel?
Do you love me too, are these feelings for real?
Maybe it is love, or it could be lust,
Love begins with honesty, then begins the trust.
– Danny Shaw

  1. Is there such a thing as love at first sight?

That’s the question I used to ask
Until I laid eyes on you.
How is it possible to feel so much for a
stranger, a passerby?
Love has no limits, no color, no time.
That’s when I realized I had fallen in love
Love at first sight.

  1. Love At First Sight

When I first saw you,
time felt very slow,
like nothing else mattered,
like an opening act of a broadway show.

It starred your eyes,
olive, round and fair,
accented by your smile,
so gorgeous I can’t compare.

You make a portrait of beauty,
a canvas so stunning,
I can’t help but wonder,
what makes you so cunning.

You’ve subdued me at first sight,
I can’t help but fight,
these feelings of passion & warmth,
with wonder & delight..

I don’t even know your name,
we won’t even meet tonight,
but I can tell you now,
I’m in love at first sight.

– Trancez

  1. I never knew about happiness;

I didn’t think dreams came true;
I couldn’t really believe in love,
Until I finally met you.
– Joanna Fuchs

  1. Love At First Sight

Love at first sight
It’s hard to explain
But you know when it happens
You feel it in your heart

It’s like you’ve known each other forever
Even though you just met
You can’t deny the connection
You have with this special someone

Love at first sight
Is a once in a lifetime feeling
You know that you want to be with them
For the rest of your life

You can’t explain it
But you know it’s real
And you’ll never forget
The moment you met

Love at first sight
– Iris B. Stehn

Love At First Sight Poems For Her

  1. How It Started And Ended

It started
After I saw you for five seconds
Your beauty sticks to my memories for more than weeks
Only for a little moment
I can feel my muscles really weak but it all ended
When I saw your curve of your lips
Goes up when you lean your head to his shoulder
There goes my hopes and bliss
Taken and swallowed by the world
–   Anonymous

  1. That Moment

When our eyes met in that crowded room
I felt something inside my heart bloom.
I realized that fate had a hand
And if all went according to plan
It had brought me to you
To start a love that we both would cherish
And stay true.

– Anonymous

  1. The First Time I saw Her

Jittery my heart did when the first time I laid my eyes on her
Oh Sweet Lord, look at my heart beating
Help me please because I stopped breathing
As she move her hands and legs following the music
Nailed my senses, I cannot feel the ground
Noticed my muscles dropped around my mouth
Attracted by her dance, I let my mind imagine further, no way it can’t be
Oh my God this can’t be true.
Reality! I need to wake up to reality
I can’t be falling in love by just her beauty
Eye catching, her looks just so eye catching
God Help Me!
Am I in love or it’s just another lust????
–  Anonymous

  1. First Love

I ne’er was struck before that hour
With love so sudden and so sweet,
Her face it bloomed like a sweet flower
And stole my heart away complete.
My face turned pale as deadly pale,
My legs refused to walk away,
And when she looked, what could I ail?
My life and all seemed turned to clay.

– John Clare, poetryfoundation.org

  1. Her

then one somnolent night
she danced under the misty light
her face coated with delight
an escape from her petty plight
reassuring herself it was alright

i rolled my eyes and let out a sigh
a twitching smile i could not hide
as the feeling landed with a smite
it was easier if i just denied
falling in love with her at first sight

– Daphne, hellopoetry.com

  1. The girl in the train

Yellow surrounded with beautiful blue
Like gold trapped inside shining pearls
Do you mind me sitting next to you?
You have godlike eyes unlike other girls Please tell an endless story
And silence all other noise
Never will I get enough
Of that sweet angel’s voice Meet me at the train
When we shall meet again
But this time the rails
Won’t have an end
–  Ron

  1. And I Catch Those Glimpses

And I
want you to realize
what your lashes hide away. And I want to be behind those eyes
when you look at me that way. And I feel my irises dilate, and my glance falls astray
from those orbs that mesmerize and catastrophize
my love struck brain,
And I just wonder, as my heartbeat flies…
As my gaze takes in the flush of your cheeks… (as I flush mine)
Though that gaze won’t dare rise
to those laughing stars on your face.
I wonder… Tell me, since I’m suddenly shy.
Do your eyes… does your heart dilate the same?
– Anonymous

Love at first sight is real
Anyone or anybody can feel it
You know my lips can’t say it
So I’ll see you in my lovely dreams.

And I want to be behind those eyes

  1. Love at First Sight

They said, Love at first sight is only on the fairytale.
It only lust, not love
It’s only temporary, not permanent
And it doesn’t exist
They were wrong
Till one day I met him,
And he said “Let’s

  1. I loved you first: but afterwards your love

Outsoaring mine, sang such a loftier song
As drowned the friendly cooings of my dove.
Which owes the other most? my love was long,
And yours one moment seemed to wax more strong;
I loved and guessed at you, you construed me
And loved me for what might or might not be
–– Christina Rossetti, poetryfoundation.org

  1. Love At First Sight

You froze me in place the first time I saw you,
My feelings are deep and my soul full of many passions.
Why do I feel so strangely after one glance?
All those stories about love at first sight.
Maybe my mom was right.
Your smile was warm and reached from ear to ear.
Your laugh is contagious and warms every corner of my soul.
Why do I feel so connected after one glance?
I try and shake it but you already have a hold on my heart.

– Alan Mercer

  1. When I First Met You

They said no offense
but he reminds us of you.
Doubt it, I replied.
Then through those doors you stumbled through;
Saying “love is all around,”
and that made me turn around.
A careless glance.
That’s all it took.
For me
to see me,
when I thought
I watched you.

  1. Falling For A Stranger

I have fallen for you
since the first time
we met.
Wanting to know
more about you
was the goal that
I set.

You caught me
off-guarded whenever
you would gaze at me;
I looked away quickly—-
Heart pounding but
feeling all giddy.

I want to get to know you more
but I know that I never will;
My flight leaves at seven—-
Can’t we make time stand still?

Even though I didn’t get to ask
for your name;
There’s this hope inside of me
that our feelings——
are the same.

– Joanna Charis, hellopoetry.com

But at first sight
That’s right
First sight

Eye contact
We became friends
Now lovers
