1. A Toast To Forever
You’re the one I can’t live without.
This fact is true, I have no doubt.
I love the way you smile at me.
I love the way together we’re free.
You may be strange and slightly loony,
But all this means nothing to me,
Because you are who you are,
And I can see your beauty
Inside and out,
Which is what threw me.
When every day I see you,
Till then I cannot wait.
To know what we will go through
Is in the hands of fate.
The first time that I saw you,
I knew I must steal your heart.
I hope that it’s mine forever
And that we never do part.
You are the one I love the most,
And to this here fact, I propose a toast;
May we grow old and still have fun,
Because I love you and my heart you’ve won.
– Josh Mertens
2. Forever Ruthie Cee
Anyone can tell you they love you.
Anyone can flatter you and tell you you’re beautiful.
Anyone can make you smile and happy.
Anyone can promise you the world
And the stars and the finest things of life.
But I don’t want to be anyone; I want to be the one,
The one who makes you wake up smiling,
The one who makes you walk down the street knowing someone loves you,
The one to bring heaven on Earth for you,
The reason for your joy and happiness.
You are my love,
You are my friend, my lady,
And one day the mother of my children.
In you I have seen my future,
And in the glow of your eyes and your smile
I know that I found my soulmate.
I love you, baby.
– Richard Sione
3. I Love You
You look at me as if I’m the only girl around.
You make me feel important and never let me down.
You’ve shown me how to live,
How to smile, what to say.
You’ve shown me what it’s worth
To love someone each and every day.
So this poem goes out to you
For everything you’ve done,
And I hope now you understand
That baby, you’re the one!
I love you!
4. So Happy And So Proud
Thoughts of you surround me.
You’re the beating of my heart.
The love you give defines me.
My life is no longer dark.
You give your hand so sweetly.
I am lost if you’re away.
You have me so completely.
I cherish you night and day.
Without your breath, I cannot live.
I need your lips on mine.
Nothing at all I wouldn’t give.
I’ll take nothing and be fine.
For in your arms I’m always home,
So happy and so proud.
Never a day you’ll feel alone,
And I’ll yell it oh so loud…
I LOVE YOU WITH ALL MY HEART!
5. My Melody
Amazing and beautiful,
not a flower or a tree.
Much prettier than that,
and only I can see.
Loving and caring
right down to the core.
Filling me with happiness
and so much more.
Eyes are so stunning,
cannot look away.
Gorgeous and shining
all throughout the day.
Here in your arms
is where I belong.
The beating of your heart
is like a beautiful song.
– Eric Pribyl
6. I Love You
I love your lips when they’re wet with wine
And red with a wild desire;
I love your eyes when the lovelight lies
Lit with a passionate fire.
I love your arms when the warm white flesh
Touches mine in a fond embrace;
I love your hair when the strands enmesh
Your kisses against my face.
Not for me the cold, calm kiss
Of a virgin’s bloodless love;
Not for me the saint’s white bliss,
Nor the heart of a spotless dove.
But give me the love that so freely gives
And laughs at the whole world’s blame,
With your body so young and warm in my arms,
It sets my poor heart aflame.
So kiss me sweet with your warm wet mouth,
Still fragrant with ruby wine,
And say with a fervor born of the South
That your body and soul are mine.
Clasp me close in your warm young arms,
While the pale stars shine above,
And we’ll live our whole young lives away
In the joys of a living love.
– Ella Wheeler Wilcox
7. When I Die I Want Your Hands On My Eyes
When I die I want your hands on my eyes:
I want the light and the wheat of your beloved hands
to pass their freshness over me one more time
to feel the smoothness that changed my destiny.
I want you to live while I wait for you, asleep,
I want for your ears to go on hearing the wind,
for you to smell the sea that we loved together
and for you to go on walking the sand where we walked.
I want for what I love to go on living
and as for you I loved you and sang you above everything,
for that, go on flowering, flowery one,
so that you reach all that my love orders for you,
so that my shadow passes through your hair,
so that they know by this the reason for my song.
– Pablo Neruda
8. How Do I Love Thee?
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 candlelight.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love with a 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
9. My Angel, My Girlfriend
Some people believe there is a one,
The one who points your way to the sun.
A person they believe makes them complete,
The one who will support when facing defeat.
You are my angel, my one and only,
My forever love, so we’ll never be lonely.
You’ve brought to my life all your love and care.
It made me see when I realized how rare
It is to meet your angel, or their lifetime one,
Through you and my children, whose life has begun.
What you’ve done, you’ve illuminated my soul.
It’s you and your love that has made me whole.
The feel of your love, your soft touch and caress,
We’re tight, so close; your heart beats in my chest.
All that we have always felt missing before.
Though I love you today, tomorrow it will be more.
Our love is life; we are the strongest tree,
Which will always grow forever, like you and me.
You have opened my heart and held it so dear.
You are my angel and will always keep it near.
You have seen my ups and cared when I was low.
You are my angel; I just need you to know.
You entered my life through a ray of sun above,
And when we leave, we will leave together in love.
My love for you has become my reason to be.
I hope one day you’ll find your angel in me.
– Rick Morley
10. You’re My…
You’re my sun on a cloudy day
You’re my umbrella on a rainy day
You’re my everything what can I say
You’re in my mind each and everyday
I think about you when I lay down to bed
I think about you while I am taking a test
You’re my Number one and you’re the best
You’re like a tattoo in my mind that will never be erased
I’ll Love you forever because this isn’t a phase
It’s just that I love you in my Unique way
– Neftali Rosales
11. Our Love
L is for “laughter” we had along the way.
O is for “optimism” you gave me every day.
V is for “value” of being my best friend.
E is for “eternity,” a love that has no end.
– John P. Read
12. Don’t Go Far Off, Not Even For A Day
Don’t go far off, not even for a day, because —
because — I don’t know how to say it: a day is long
and I will be waiting for you, as in an empty station
when the trains are parked off somewhere else, asleep.
Don’t leave me, even for an hour, because
then the little drops of anguish will all run together,
the smoke that roams looking for a home will drift
into me, choking my lost heart.
Oh, may your silhouette never dissolve on the beach;
may your eyelids never flutter into the empty distance.
Don’t leave me for a second, my dearest,
because in that moment you’ll have gone so far
I’ll wander mazily over all the earth, asking,
Will you come back? Will you leave me here, dying?
– Pablo Neruda
13. Love Sonnet XI
I crave your mouth, your voice, your hair.
Silent and starving, I prowl through the streets.
Bread does not nourish me, dawn disrupts me, all day
I hunt for the liquid measure of your steps.
I hunger for your sleek laugh,
your hands the color of a savage harvest,
hunger for the pale stones of your fingernails,
I want to eat your skin like a whole almond.
I want to eat the sunbeam flaring in your lovely body,
the sovereign nose of your arrogant face,
I want to eat the fleeting shade of your lashes,
and I pace around hungry, sniffing the twilight,
hunting for you, for your hot heart,
like a puma in the barrens of Quitratue.
– Pablo Neruda
14. Always Marry An April Girl
Praise the spells and bless the charms,
I found April in my arms.
April golden, April cloudy,
Gracious, cruel, tender, rowdy;
April soft in flowered languor,
April cold with sudden anger,
Ever changing, ever true —
I love April, I love you.
– Ogden Nash
15. I Am Not Yours
I am not yours, not lost in you,
Not lost, although I long to be
Lost as a candle lit at noon,
Lost as a snowflake in the sea.
You love me, and I find you still
A spirit beautiful and bright,
Yet I am I, who long to be
Lost as a light is lost in light.
Oh plunge me deep in love – put out
My senses, leave me deaf and blind,
Swept by the tempest of your love,
A taper in a rushing wind.
– Sara Teasdale
It’s that look in your eye.
It’s the smile on your face
That makes time slip by,
And I know I’m in a better place.
It’s the memories of you I have
That make any grey sky turn blue
And lets me know these feelings I have
Getting lost in my dreams
With the mere image of you.
It’s hard to imagine; it seems
A future lost, one without you.
So I leave my arms open,
And I’ll wish and may pray,
Eyes focused and hoping
For your embrace just one more day.
– Bryce Jennings
17. Shadowing Eternity
A special place for you and me,
An undying bond to guide us free.
Loneliness blocking the day,
Our Love lighting the way.
Your gentle touch,
Your smiling face,
There is no corner,
No dark place.
Our passion flowing in the waves.
My heart stands still
Awaiting your pace.
Our love, withstanding time,
Diminishing doubt in our mind.
There is no place I’d rather be…
Than in your heart and in your dreams…
– Oscar Grullon
18. Somewhere I Have Never Travelled, Gladly Beyond
somewhere i have never travelled,gladly beyond
any experience,your eyes have their silence:
in your most frail gesture are things which enclose me,
or which i cannot touch because they are too near
your slightest look easily will unclose me
though i have closed myself as fingers,
you open always petal by petal myself as Spring opens
(touching skilfully,mysteriously)her first rose
or if your wish be to close me,i and
my life will shut very beautifully,suddenly,
as when the heart of this flower imagines
the snow carefully everywhere descending;
nothing which we are to perceive in this world equals
the power of your intense fragility:whose texture
compels me with the colour of its countries,
rendering death and forever with each breathing
(i do not know what it is about you that closes
and opens;only something in me understands
the voice of your eyes is deeper than all roses)
nobody,not even the rain,has such small hands
19. Love’s Coming
She had looked for his coming as warriors come,
With the clash of arms and the bugle’s call;
But he came instead with a stealthy tread,
Which she did not hear at all.
She had thought how his armor would blaze in the sun,
As he rode like a prince to claim his bride:
In the sweet dim light of the falling night
She found him at her side.
She had dreamed how the gaze of his strange, bold eye
Would wake her heart to a sudden glow:
She found in his face the familiar grace
Of a friend she used to know.
She had dreamed how his coming would stir her soul,
As the ocean is stirred by the wild storm’s strife:
He brought her the balm of a heavenly calm,
And a peace which crowned her life.
– Ella Wheeler Wilcox
20. A Dream Girl
You will come one day in a waver of love,
Tender as dew, impetuous as rain,
The tan of the sun will be on your skin,
The purr of the breeze in your murmuring speech,
You will pose with a hill-flower grace.
You will come, with your slim, expressive arms,
A poise of the head no sculptor has caught
And nuances spoken with shoulder and neck,
Your face in pass-and-repass of moods
As many as skies in delicate change
Of cloud and blue and flimmering sun.
You may not come, O girl of a dream,
We may but pass as the world goes by
And take from a look of eyes into eyes,
A film of hope and a memoried day.
– Carl Sandburg
