1. For Us
Don’t want it to pass,
Don’t want to let it go.
Hope it will last till my last breath
And stay with me till the last moment.
My skin craves your hugs and cuddles.
The racing of heart and the calmness around,
Mellow voices of beating heart
What does it say?
Let the rest of the world fall apart.
Stay still and shower me,
With slow kisses and caresses.
We are all we need.
2. 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.
— Pablo Neruda, poetryfoundation.org
3. Forces of the Universe
Call it magic or gifts of the universe.
But like the earth rotating around the sun,
My heart yearns for yours,
As we share sweet walks in the rain.
Like the very laws that guide, I’m writing down the words,
Guided by the forces of the universe.
4. I Do Not Love You Except Because I Love You
I do not love you except because I love you;
I go from loving to not loving you,
From waiting to not waiting for you
My heart moves from cold to fire.
I love you only because it’s you the one I love;
I hate you deeply, and hating you
Bend to you, and the measure of my changing love for you
Is that I do not see you but love you blindly.
— Pablo Neruda
5. In Her Eyes
In her eyes, I saw what a thousand future holds.
In her eyes, my day calls for joy.
In her eyes, the moon shines bright.
In her eyes, even the oceans make their wishes.
In her eyes, lies the desire for love.
In her eyes, I see two luminous stars.
6. “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.
For verily love knows not ‘mine’ or ‘thine;’
With separate ‘I’ and ‘thou’ free love has done,
For one is both and both are one in love:
Rich love knows nought of ‘thine that is not mine;’
Both have the strength and both the length thereof,
Both of us, of the love which makes us one.
— Christina Rossetti, poetryfoundation.org
7. Hold Your Head High
Don’t stop smiling,
Hide the tears in your eyes.
Don’t stop smiling,
Shine like a star in a gloomy sky.
Don’t stop smiling,
Hold your head high.
8. To Love You
It feels bittersweet to love you, as though time has already run its ruinous path and everything good is over before it begins.
It feels perilous to love you, like a dust storm swallowing up the sky or a comet skimming the stratosphere.
But it is an honor to love you. Like the snow drifts giving way to spring; I will hold you for as long as I can.
— Lang Leav
9. A Red, Red Rose
O my Luve is like a red, red rose
That’s newly sprung in June;
O my Luve is like the melody
That’s sweetly played in tune.
So fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
So deep in love am I;
And I will love thee still, my dear,
Till a’ the seas gang dry.
Till a’ the seas gang dry, my dear,
And the rocks melt wi’ the sun;
I will love thee still, my dear,
While the sands o’ life shall run.
And fare thee weel, my only luve!
And fare thee weel awhile!
And I will come again, my luve,
Though it were ten thousand mile.
– Robert Burns
10. She Walks In Beauty
She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes;
Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.
One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o’er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express,
How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.
— Percy Bysshe Shelley, poetryfoundation.org
11. Before You Came
Before you came,
Things were as they should be:
The sky was the dead-end of sight,
The road was just a road, wine merely wine.
Now everything is like my heart,
A color at the edge of blood:
The grey of your absence, the color of poison, of thorns,
The gold when we meet, the season ablaze,
The yellow of autumn, the red of flowers, of flames,
And the black when you cover the earth
With the coal of dead fires.
And the sky, the road, the glass of wine
The sky is a shirt wet with tears,
The road a vein about to break,
And the glass of wine a mirror in which
The sky, the road, the world keep changing.
Don’t leave now that you’re here—
Stay. So the world may become itself again.
So the sky may be the sky,
The road a road,
And the glass of wine not a mirror, just a glass of wine.
– Faiz Ahmed Faiz

— e. e. cummings, poetryfoundation.org
13. Her Smile
A smile is such a lovely thing, especially upon your face;
Hiding all the sorrows or simply taking their place.
A kindly spoken word means so much when from you,
It comforts my weary heart or when I’m feeling blue.
A song can make our hearts dance in pretty fast-paced clips
When we hear the melody of our loves’ unconquerable grips.
Words could lift my spirits and sweet compassion find;
Put your hand in mine alone, and peace will fill my mind.
A smile, a word, a song, a look – seem small little things
But when love sparks an action, what blessings they bring!
– Michael Rodney Attoh
14. Sonnet 18: Shall I Compare Thee To A Summer’s Day?
Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date;
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm’d;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature’s changing course untrimm’d;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow’st;
Nor shall death brag thou wander’st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow’st:
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.
— William Shakespeare, poetryfoundation.org
15. One Day I Wrote Her Name Upon the Strand
One day I wrote her name upon the strand,
But came the waves and washed it away:
Again I wrote it with a second hand,
But came the tide, and made my pains his prey.
“Vain man,” said she, “that dost in vain assay,
A mortal thing so to immortalize;
For I myself shall like to this decay,
And eke my name be wiped out likewise.”
“Not so,” (quod I) “let baser things devise
To die in dust, but you shall live by fame:
My verse your virtues rare shall eternize,
And in the heavens write your glorious name
Where when as death shall all the world subdue,
Our love shall live, and later life renew.
– Edmund Spenser
16. Our Love
This is where our love is found
In a strange little rhyme;
Where in space the beat of our hearts resound,
Where our bones lie in the ground.
Little fragments ground down with time,
Where fingers were once intertwined,
And I wore your ring, and you wore mine.
— Lang Leav
17. Another Valentine
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 sure, 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.
– Wendy Cope
18. Sonnet 29: When, In Disgrace With Fortune And Men’s Eyes
Yet in these thoughts myself almost despising,
Haply I think on thee, and then my state,
(Like to the lark at break of day arising
From sullen earth) sings hymns at heaven’s gate;
For thy sweet love remembered such wealth brings
That then I scorn to change my state with kings.
— William Shakespeare, poetryfoundation.org
19. I Loved You
I loved you, and I probably still do,
And for a while, the feeling may remain.
But let my love no longer trouble you,
I do not wish to cause you any pain.
I loved you, and the hopelessness I knew,
The jealousy, the shyness – though in vain –
Made up a love so tender and so true
As may God grant you to be loved again.
– Alexander Pushkin
I whisper your name like a prayer — with all the hope of heaven.
I trace the lines on your palm and draw a map to salvation.
I hear the knock of your heart and I answer it like my calling.
— Lang Leav
I am yours as the summer air at evening is
Possessed by the scent of linden blossoms,
As the snowcap gleams with light
Lent it by the brimming moon.
Without you I’d be an unleafed tree
Blasted in a bleakness with no Spring.
Your love is the weather of my being.
What is an island without the sea?
– Daniel Hoffman
22. The Chase
If you got any more beautiful
The sun would leave its place
And come for you
— Rupi Kaur
23. To Dorothy
You are not beautiful, exactly.
You are beautiful, inexactly.
You let a weed grow by the mulberry
and a mulberry grow by the house.
So close, in the personal quiet
of a windy night, it brushes the wall
and sweeps away the day till we sleep.
A child said it, and it seemed true:
“Things that are lost are all equal.”
But it isn’t true. If I lost you,
the air wouldn’t move, nor the tree grow.
Someone would pull the weed, my flower.
The quiet wouldn’t be yours. If I lost you,
I’d have to ask the grass to let me sleep.
— Marvin Bell, poets.org
