just want you to know how much,
I love the things you do.

And for all of the times, I will leave you, never.

12. Why I Love Thee?

Why I love thee?
Ask why the seawind wanders,
Why the shore is aflush with the tide,
Why the moon through heaven meanders;
Like seafaring ships that ride
On a sullen, motionless deep;
Why the seabirds are fluttering the strand
Where the waves sing themselves to sleep
And starshine lives in the curves of the sand!

— Sadakichi Hartmann, poets.org

When you whisper it
And love my heart
When you love it.
I love my life,
Because you are part of it.

14. A White Rose

The red rose whispers of passion,
And the white rose breathes of love;
O, the red rose is a falcon,
And the white rose is a dove.
But I send you a cream-white rosebud
With a flush on its petal tips;
For the love that is purest and sweetest
Has a kiss of desire on the lips.

— J. B. O’Reilly, poets.org

15. Presence Of Love

And in Life’s noisiest hour,
There whispers still the ceaseless Love of Thee,
The heart’s Self-solace and soliloquy.
You mold my Hopes, you fashion me within;
And to the leading Love-throb in the Heart
Thro’ all my Being, thro’ my pulses beat;
You lie in all my many Thoughts, like Light,
Like the fair light of Dawn, or summer Eve
On a rippling Stream, or cloud-reflecting Lake.
And looking to the Heaven, that bends above you,
How oft! I bless the Lot, that made me love you.

— Samuel Taylor Coleridge, poetandpoem.com

16. Light To My Soul

You gave light to my soul
You helped me to be whole
I have felt love for you before
And it will be more and more,
You are mine, my dear
You are the angel from above
Who taught me how to love.
Please, forever keep me near.

— Unknown, Luvze.com

17. Stunning And Beautiful

Stunning and beautiful, not like a flower or a tree,
More breathtaking than those and only I can see,
My heart beats your name right down to the core,
Filling me with such joy and so much more,
Your eyes so amazing, I just can’t look away,
They’re gorgeous and shining throughout the day,
Here in my arms is where you belong,
Our two hearts beating to the same song,
Let me go home with you along.

— Nezzoh, wordpress.com

18. Love

I promise to Love you through the good times and bad
I’ll Love you when I’m angry, hurt and mad
Love is a choice I’ve made to devote my life
To making you, my world, my wife
Nothing will ever change that choice that I’ve made
Even when we feel our Love start to fade
It’s inside my soul, and nothing can shake
My Love for you, that’s a promise I won’t break.

— Sean Short, lovelifepoems.net

If ever we shall perish
and become but specks
of dust, I hope the wind
carries us away to that
place you’ve always loved.

— R.M. Broderick, Yourtango.com

20. Hopelessly In Love

Before I met you,
I felt that I couldn’t love anyone,
That nobody would be able to fill the void in my heart,
But that all changed when I met you.
Then I came to realize you were always on my mind.
You’re funny and sweet.
You make me laugh and smile.
You take away all my anger and sadness.
You make me weak when I talk to you.
Then I started to write poems about you.
Now I have come to realize that I am hopelessly in love with you.
