1. I will wait for you forever

“The days are cold, the nights are long,
but my love for you stays strong.

I hold you in my heart
and have you on my mind.

I’ll wait for you; however long,
my love for you is blind.

You are my lover and my friend,
you are my everything.

I shall remain here waiting,
even if for eternity.”

– Diana J. Briones

2. Love’s philosophy

“The fountains mingle with the river
And the rivers with the ocean,
The winds of heaven mix forever
With a sweet emotion;

Nothing in the world is single;
All things by a law divine
In one spirit meet and mingle.
Why not I with thine?—

See the mountains kiss high heaven
And the waves clasp one another;
No sister-flower would be forgiven
If it disdained its brother;

And the sunlight clasps the earth
And the moonbeams kiss the sea:
What is all this sweet work worth
If thou kiss not me?”

– Percy Bysshe Shelley

3. Wish I could find the words

“Just wish I could find the words
That would make the meaning clear
About why I just love you so
And why I want you here

Why I need you here with me
So I can shower you with love
Why it is so clear to see
You are an angel from above

An angel sent from heavens high
To bring the lord’s own prayer
That you and I on blue skies fly
Share a love that is true and rare

A love that is so truly pure
That it completely fills my heart
A love that will forever endure
And that we shall never part

A love that will last you see
Until the end of time
A love which joins us – you and me
And forever will our hearts entwine.”

–  Nigel P Stringfellow

4. How do I love thee? (Sonnet 43)

“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
Most quiet 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 seemed to lose
With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.”

– Elizabeth Barrett Browning

5. You are my everything

“When you were my friend
You were amazing
When you were my boyfriend
You were outstanding
When you were my fiancé
You were commendable
As my husband now
You are incredible
You have been the perfect lover
At every juncture of life
Of such a loving husband
I am proud of a wife
I love you”

– Jetem Westbrook

6. The good-morrow

“I wonder, by my troth, what thou and I
Did, till we loved? Were we not weaned till then?
But sucked on country pleasures, childishly?
Or snorted we in the Seven Sleepers’ den?
’Twas so; but this, all pleasures fancies be.
If ever any beauty I did see,
Which I desired, and got, ’twas but a dream of thee.
And now good-morrow to our waking souls,
Which watch not one another out of fear;
For love, all love of other sights controls,
And makes one little room an everywhere.
Let sea-discoverers to new worlds have gone,
Let maps to other, worlds on worlds have shown,
Let us possess one world, each hath one, and is one.
My face in thine eye, thine in mine appears,
And true plain hearts do in the faces rest;
Where can we find two better hemispheres,
Without sharp north, without declining west?
Whatever dies, was not mixed equally;
If our two loves be one, or, thou and I
Love so alike, that none do slacken, none can die.”

– John Donne, poetryfoundation.org

7. To my loving and caring husband

Poems on love for caring husbands

Image: IStock

“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 with me, 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.”

– Anne Bradstreet

8. One hundred love sonnets: XVII

“I don’t love you as if you were a rose of salt, topaz,
or arrow of carnations that propagate fire:
I love you as one loves certain obscure things,
secretly, between the shadow and the soul.
I love you as the plant that doesn’t bloom but carries
the light of those flowers, hidden, within itself,
and thanks to your love the tight aroma that arose
from the earth lives dimly in my body.
I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where,
I love you directly without problems or pride:
I love you like this because I don’t know any other way to love,
except in this form in which I am not nor are you,
so close that your hand upon my chest is mine,
so close that your eyes close with my dreams.”

– Pablo Neruda, poetryfoundation.org

9. My amazing man

“Sharing my intimacy and fears
My happiness and my tears
Sharing gossip and fun
And all the things that I have done
Sharing my troubles and delights
Even after all our fights
Sharing thoughts about my roadblocks
Over our lengthy talks
Leaves me without a single worry
Only because I have a wonderful hubby
Your unwavering support and adulation
Makes me feel blessed with heartfelt admiration
I love you.”

10. Meeting at night

“The grey sea and the long black land;
And the yellow half-moon large and low;
And the startled little waves that leap
In fiery ringlets from their sleep,
As I gain the cove with pushing prow,
And quench its speed i’ the slushy sand.
Then a mile of warm sea-scented beach;
Three fields to cross till a farm appears;
A tap at the pane, the quick sharp scratch
And blue spurt of a lighted match,
And a voice less loud, thro’ its joys and fears,
Than the two hearts beating each to each!”

– Robert Browning

11. For my husband

“Loving you has no end and no beginning
Loving you is everything
It is infinite in time
And limitless in magnitude
Beyond even my own comprehension

Your love brings me home
Enfolds me and warms me
In its eternal embrace
Endless and palpable
Beyond all life’s storms

A connection like no other
Twenty years long
But timeless in our hearts
Deep and true
Till’ death us do part.”

– Susan Louglin

12. Love’s vicissitudes

“As Love and Hope together
Walk by me for a while,
Link-armed the ways they travel
For many a pleasant mile –
Link-armed and dumb they travel,
They sing not, but they smile.
Hope leaving, love commences
To practise on the lute;
And as he sings and travels
With lingering, laggard foot,
Despair plays obligato
The sentimental flute.
Until in singing garments
Comes royally, at call –
Comes limber-hipped Indiff’rence
Free stepping, straight and tall –
Comes singing and lamenting,
The sweetest pipe of all.”

– Robert Louis Stevenson

13. The love of my life

“You’re my best friend and my loverI know this to be true
For I wake every morning
Thinking solely of you

Your tender touch and gentle kiss
A feeling no words can describe
Something I am yearning for
When you’re at my side

A beauty that radiates
From both inside and out
A heaven-sent gift
No question about

A passion that penetrates
As deep as a knife
I’m happy I found you
The love of my life.”

14. Love’s language

“How does Love speak?
In the faint flush upon the tell-tale cheek,
And in the pallor that succeeds it; by
The quivering lid of an averted eye–
The smile that proves the parent to a sigh–
Thus does Love speak.
How does Love speak?
By the uneven heart-throbs, and the freak
Of bounding pulses that stand still and ache,
While new emotions, like strange barques, make
Along vein-channels their disturbing course;
Still as the dawn, and with the dawn’s swift force–
Thus doth Love speak.

How does Love speak?
In the avoidance of that which we seek–
The sudden silence and reserve when near–
The eye that glistens with an unshed tear–
The joy that seems the counterpart of fear,
As the alarme’d heart leaps in the breast,
And knows, and names, and greets its god-like guest–
Thus doth Love speak.”

– Ella Wheeler Wilcox, ellawheelerwilcox.org

15. The new beginning

“Like the warmth of the morning sun,
So do thoughts of you embrace me,
Revealing how alive I am

A glorious light of the new day,
so is your presence in my life,
relieving it of its shadows,
and marking the start of a new beginning.”

– Kolapo Olufunk

16. A glimpse

“A glimpse through an interstice caught,
Of a crowd of workmen and drivers in a bar-room around the stove late of a winter night, and I unremark’d seated in a corner,

Of a youth who loves me and whom I love, silently approaching and seating himself near, that he may hold me by the hand,

A long while amid the noises of coming and going, of drinking and oath and smutty jest,
There we two, content, happy in being together, speaking little, perhaps not a word.”

– Walt Whitman, poetryfoundation.org

17. My favorite part of the day

“My favorite part of the day
Is when you hold me in your arms
When you kiss and caress me
And woo me with your charms
My favorite moment of the day
Is when you come home to me
How would I live my life without you
I worship the love that we share
It’s what sets my heart free
I love you.

18. Wild nights – wild nights!

Wild nights – Wild nights!
Were I with thee
Wild nights should be
Our luxury!
Futile – the winds –
To a Heart in port –
Done with the Compass –
Done with the Chart!
Rowing in Eden –
Ah – the Sea!
Might I but moor – tonight –
In thee!

– Emily Dickinson, poetryfoundation.org

19. Our love

“I hope our love lasts forever
I’m happy to say my dreams came true
Because I’m blessed to be loved by you
I hate when we fuss and fight
Because in the end neither was right
You’re the love of my life; you’re my best friend
And I never want this love to end
I hope to always be together
I vow to love now and forever.”

20. The best

“When I awake each day,
and beside me, you lay
I smile and thank God above,
for giving me you to love.A husband like you,
I once only dreamed.
I love you so much,
I could scream.
Screams of happiness and joy,
For a marriage that is beyond,
Expectations truly exceeded,
Only with love, I can respond.
You are a wonderful husband,
So thoughtful and kind,
Your love is never in question.
A man like you I thought I would never find.
Love you today and tomorrow too
My husband, you are awesome
And handsome too!
With you, the best is yet to come!”

– Catherine Pulsifer

21. On our anniversary

“My feelings and love for you
Aren’t just limited to
Getting all romantic and mushy
Only on our wedding anniversary
From kisses and hugs
To playful nudges and tugs
Even on an ordinary day
There’s a lot I want to say
I love you.”

22. Love’s secret

Never seek to tell thy love,
Love that never told can be;
For the gentle wind doth move
Silently, invisibly.

– William Blake

23. Apple of my eye

My dear husband, you make my life complete

Image: IStock

“The apple of my eye
The gem of my heart
Nothing in the world
Can ever keep us apart
The feather in my cap
The reason for my heartbeat
My dear husband
You make my life complete
I love you.”

24. I loved you first: but afterwards your love

“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 –
Nay, weights and measures do us both a wrong.”

– Christina Rossetti, poetryfoundation.org

25. If only you knew

“In the darkness of the night, there is only me and you,
We are woven together in our very own cocoon.

I feel your heartbeat against my chest,
I hold you tight as we both rest.

I start to drift off to sleep,
And think of how I turned complete.

I am only complete when you are near,
To lose you someday is my biggest fear.

It takes two halves to make a whole,
My heart and yours, we make one soul.”

– Rahik Thamir

26. That love is all there is

“That Love is all there is,
Is all we know of Love;
It is enough, the freight should be
Proportioned to the groove.”

– Emily Dickinson

Close your eyes and try to see
Our hearts together and what could be
Our love forever as destiny.”

my heart) I am never without it (anywhere
I go you go,my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling) I fear
no fate (for you are my fate,my sweet) I want
no world (for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever the sun will always sing is you.”

Made me dream of things I never thought I could
My pillar of strength deep in my soul
The one who made my life whole

The look in your eyes can make my heart skip
Ever since I meet you I’ve enjoyed this trip
So to you my love, I thank you so
& I pray the end of my love you never know”

But having you in my life strengthens my rope

Because of you,
I know what it feels like to be loved.”

Pure bliss and solace
Thank you.”

But just know I am truly thankful
For what you did for me and mine.”

All the good and even the bad.
I don’t care what happens as long as we’re laughing,
Together means we’re never sad.”

For everything.’

To the day we said “I do,”
I always knew I wanted
To share my life with you.
Now that we are together
It is like nothing can go wrong.
Each day could last forever
And it still would not be too long.
But still, I want to take a moment
To pause and to be grateful,
Not just for everything you are
Which is to say – just wonderful –
But also, for the things you do
That make my life pure bliss.
So, thank you to my darling husband–
Now let me thank you with a kiss.”

Your smilin’ face looking at me
Our days together are full of happiness
Oh, how God has blessed.
Each night before I go to sleep
I thank God for you and ask him to keep
You safe and well
I give thanks to God that life is so swell.”

I sincerely appreciate it, and it’s always right on time.
Your actions inspire my love and creativity
to encourage, strengthen, and stimulate your mind.
You work long and hard when needed, and you handle it quite well,
you are a survivor who has improved through each struggle and test.
Out of all the people who I have encountered in my life
you are by far the one I like and love the best.
You are a handsome sexy man, who is straightforward;
you are genuine and kind to everyone you meet.
Your beautiful, sweet spirit reaches deep down to your core
and radiates from the crown of your head to the soles of your feet.
All the reasons why I love you are too numerous for this mere poem;
but I can tell you that I’ve loved you from the start.
After many years, our passion still burns hotter than the sun
since that first day when you caused the melting of my heart.”

One of the many small beautiful things
That makes me smile just to know they come from you.”

“A wonderful husband you are
You are the best by far
I love how thoughtful you are each day
Making life better in every way.
Kindness you have always shown
You always help, never moan
Your caring ways are appreciated so
And your love always shows.
I thank God for putting you in my life
Together we have faced our share of strive
But always you are there for me
Loving, and caring, you make me so happy.
Together we journey life’s windy road
Together we carry each other’s load
Together we will always be glad
That each other we do have.”

Thanks for supporting me
