Because She Would Ask Me Why I love Her - Short Love Poem

By Christopher Brennan

If questioning would make us wise
No eyes would ever gaze in eyes;
If all our tale were told in speech
No mouths would wander each to each.

Then seek not, sweet, the "If" and "Why"
I love you now until I die.
For I must love because I live
And life in me is what you give.


For Every - Ivan Panin

For every beauty there is an eye somewhere to see it.
For every truth there is an ear somewhere to hear it.
For every love there is a heart somewhere to receive it.


Peace - Sara Teasdale

I am the pool of gold
When sunset burns and dies, --
You are my deepening skies,
Give me your stars to hold.

Two things cannot alter,
Since Time was, nor today:
The flowing of water;
And Love's strange, sweet way.

My True Love Hath My Heart - Poems About Love

True love is an exchange of hearts, feelings, and thoughts...

My true love hath my heart, and I have his,
By just exchange one to the other given:
I hold his dear, and mine he cannot miss,
There never was a better bargain driven:
My true love hath my heart, and I have his.

His heart in me keeps him and me in one,
My heart in him his thoughts and senses guides:
He loves my heart, for once it was his own,
I cherish his because in me it bides:
My true love hath my heart, and I have his.


I Love Thee! - Bayard Taylor

I love thee, I love but thee!
With a love that shall not die
Till the sun grows cold
And the stars are old,
And the leaves of the Judgment
Book unfold!

Somewhere - Sir Edwin Arnold - Short Love Poem

In this touching short love poem the poet believes his true love is somewhere out there in the world waiting for them to find each other.

Somewhere there waits in this world of ours
For one lone soul, another lonely soul -
Each chasing each through all the weary hours,
And meeting strangely at one sudden goal;

Then blend they - like green leaves with golden flowers,
Into one beautiful and perfect whole -
And life's long night is ended,
And the way lies open onward to eternal day.


In Your Light - Rumi

In your light, I learn how to love.
In your beauty, how to make poems.
You dance inside my chest where no-one sees you,
but sometimes I do,
and that sight becomes this art.

Greeting - Frank L. Stanton

Sweetheart, when you walk my way,
Be it dark or be it day;
Dreary winter, fairy May,
I shall know and greet you.
For each day of grief or grace
Brings you nearer my embrace;
Love hath fashioned your dear face,
I shall know you when I meet you.


Love Me Little, Love Me Long - Author Unknown

Love me little, love me long!
Is the burden of my song:
Love that is too hot and strong
Burneth soon to waste.
Still I would not have thee cold,
Not too backward, nor too bold;
Love that lasteth till it is old
Fadeth not in haste.
Love me little, love me long!
Is the burden of my song.


From In Memorian - Alfred Lord Tennyson

'Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.
