For Keeps by Joy Harjo

“Sun makes the day new.
Tiny green plants emerge from earth.
Birds are singing the sky into place.
There is nowhere else I want to be but here.
I lean into the rhythm of your heart to see where it will take us.
We gallop into a warm, southern wind.
I link my legs to yours and we ride together,
Toward the ancient encampment of our relatives.
Where have you been? they ask.
And what has taken you so long?
That night after eating, singing, and dancing
We lay together under the stars.
We know ourselves to be part of mystery.
It is unspeakable.
It is everlasting.
It is for keeps.”

 Close Your Eyes by Elizabeth Smith

“Close your eyes and think of me
Close your eyes and try to see
Our hearts together, and what could be
Our love forever as destiny.”

For Him by Rupi Kaur

it won’t
be love at
first sight when
we meet it’ll be love
at first remembrance
’cause i’ve recognized you
in my mother’s eyes when she tells me,
marry the type of man you’d want to raise your son to be like.”

I’d Be Lying by Rupi Kaur

I’d be lying if I said
you make me speechless
the truth is you make my
tongue so weak it forgets
what language to speak in.

Beyond Words by Amy Finley

“When I first saw you
I came under your spell.
Your eyes, your smile
Everything about you was beautiful.
I didn’t know where things would lead
but the connection between us
was like nothing
I’ve ever felt before.
I’m not sure if there are words
strong enough to describe it –
you were a perfectly placed piece
in the confused puzzle of my life.
I call you my boyfriend
but it’s so much more than words.
You’re the whisper of happiness
that brings my heart to life.”

Unimaginable Perfection by Michele Meleen

“Every person dreams about
someone so perfect they can’t be real.
That is simply how you make me feel.
When I see you,
My mind goes blank
My eyes shine bright
My heart skips a beat.
I’ve never felt so in love
Just thinking of someone.
I think that you must be
So perfectly made for me.”

Love’s Coming by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

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.

I loved you first: but afterwards your love by Christina Rossetti

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.

Effortless Love by Michele Meleen

“The experience of forever
captured in an instant.
An impossibility
happening every day.
The endless emotion
trapped in one lifetime
effortlessly sustaining
such complex love.”

Heart to Heart by Rita Dove

“It’s neither red
nor sweet.
It doesn’t melt
or turn over,
break or harden,
so it can’t feel
It doesn’t have
a tip to spin on,
it isn’t even
just a thick clutch
of muscle,
mute. Still,
I feel it inside
its cage sounding
a dull tattoo:
I want, I want—
but I can’t open it:
there’s no key.
I can’t wear it
on my sleeve,
or tell you from
the bottom of it
how I feel. Here,
it’s all yours, now—
but you’ll have
to take me,

I Love You by Ella Wheeler Wilcox

“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.”

Like the Warmth of the Morning Sun by Olufunke Kolapo

“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.”

Meeting the Light Completely by Jane Hirshfield

“Even the long-beloved
was once
an unrecognized stranger.
Just so,
the chipped lip
of a blue-glazed cup,
blown field
of a yellow curtain,
might also,
flooding and falling,
ruin your heart.
A table painted with roses.
An empty clothesline.
Each time,
the found world surprises—
that is its nature.
And then
what is said by all lovers:
‘What fools we were, not to have seen.'”

Someone to Walk with Me by Raquel Franco

“I was never looking
for another half
to make me whole,
just someone
who was willing
to walk with me
no matter how far
I strayed.”

In All the World there is by Maya Angelou

no heart for me like yours.
In all the world there is
no love for you like mine.”

Even Though I Could Drown by Gemma Troy

how the sea draws me in
much like your eyes
even though I know I could drown
I’m always going to try to swim”

 Two Hearts by Amy Finley

“I see you and I’m warm inside
feeling breathless
that I get to be with someone
with such integrity
so brilliantly smart
hilariously witty
and intuitively clever.
I think of you and I’m euphoric
feeling thankful
that we found one another
two hearts molded
so perfectly together
undeniably bound
and outrageously in love.”

Waiting for a Spark by Casey Gamble

“I’ve been waiting for a spark,
To ignite within my heart.
Something I could feel –
Someone genuine and real.
Then you came along
Like a sweet love song.
Making me smile
In your typical style.
You’re what I needed,
Expectations exceeded.
Each moment, exciting.
Our souls colliding.
Let’s see where this goes,
Though I already know
Together, we’ll go far.”

Dinner for Two by Megan Cooper

“We ask the waiter for two sets of cutlery…
and plates.
But, for food, we don’t ask for two,
Because love isn’t halved, but shared.”

You are a Potion by Casey Gamble

“You are a potion
Connection, chemistry –
The correct concoction
Of the perfect partner.
A man who
Means what he says and
Does what he promises.
A magic elixir
That can’t be replicated.”

Today by Amy Finley

Neither of us knowing
quite what to say.
Your hand in mine, a beautiful start
I don’t know about tomorrow,
but we have today.”

Tonight by Sara Teasdale

“The moon is a curving flower of gold,
The sky is still and blue;
The moon was made for the sky to hold,
And I for you;
The moon is a flower without a stem,
The sky is luminous;
Eternity was made for them,
To-night for us. ”

What I Love About You by Nidhi Kaul

“The sparkle in your eye,
The warmth of your skin,
Your breath on my neck
That shakes me within.
The touch of your hand,
The smell of your hair,
The naughtiness in your smile,
That strength in your stare.
Your kiss on my lips,
Your body near mine,
The stroke of your touch,
Makes everything feel fine.
The compassion in your touch,
The power in your face,
The beating of your heart,
That we may never end our embrace.
The beauty of your kiss,
And that magic in your touch.
It is for all these reasons and more
Why I love you so much.”

When Do I Think of You by Sherry Hilderbrand

“I think of you in the morning
before the sun rises,
when in the still of the darkness
my heart feels your presence.
Your love, your tenderness,
your slow rhythmic breathing as you sleep,
and I am at peace.
I think of you when the first rays of sunlight
a spill like a waterfall between the blinds
and settle in my eyes.
I reach my hand, my foot, any body part will do,
to touch you and breathe you in.
It feeds my heart, my soul, my spirit,
and I am at peace.
I think of you at noon when the sun is at its highest
when the heat warms my skin
and causes my eyes to close with sheer pleasure.
Thoughts of you surround me, envelop me, and overpower me.
Images of you swirl around like a funnel cloud,
sucking all that it touches into its grasp,
and I am at peace.
I think of you when the sun is setting,
and its final light rays begin to fade.
I can hear your voice, deep, soft, and slow, in my head–
words of beauty, joy, friendship, and everlasting love.
My heart begins to sing a love song so sweet and so gentle.
I cannot wait to share my day with you and yours.
And I am at peace.
I think of you when the sun has set and the stillness of the moon
is displaying one of its many wondrous phases.
Thoughts of your smile, your laugh, and your eyes
create a feeling that is impossible to express with just words.
The need to touch, feel, and drink you in
is almost too much to hold inside.
Anticipation of you is the greatest gift.
I am at peace.”

I Long for Him Most by Ono No Komachi

“I long for him most
during these long moonless nights.
I lie awake, hot,
the growing fires of passion
bursting in my heart.”

How Do I Love Thee by Elizabeth Barrett Browning

“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.”

Love and Friendship by Emily Bronte

“Love is like the wild rose-briar,
Friendship like the holly-tree—
The holly is dark when the rose-briar blooms
But which will bloom most constantly?
The wild rose-briar is sweet in spring,
Its summer blossoms scent the air;
Yet wait till winter comes again
And who will call the wild-briar fair?
Then scorn the silly rose-wreath now
And deck thee with the holly’s sheen,
That when December blights thy brow
He still may leave thy garland green.”

I Am Not Yours by Sara Teasdale

“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.”

If Thou Shouldst Return by Clara Ann Thompson

“If thou shouldst return with the sweet words of love,
So earnestly spoken that day,
Methinks that thy words, this sad heart would move,
For my pride has melted away;
And I’ve learned how true was the heart that I spurned,
And I’ve longed for the face that never returned.
If thou shouldst return to claim me thy bride,
How gladly thy fate would I share;
How gladly I’d spend my whole life at thy side,
How honored I’d feel to be there;
Oh, I’ve learned to revere the heart that I spurned!
And I long for the face that never returned.
If thou shouldst return, ah, vain is the dream!
I’ll cherish the fancy no more;
Though dark and forsaken my pathway may seem,
I’ll press bravely on as before;
And trust in the One who forgives our mistakes,
And heals the deep wounds that our waywardness makes.”

One Perfect Rose” by Dorothy Parker

“A single flow’r he sent me, since we met.
All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet—
One perfect rose.

I knew the language of the floweret;
“My fragile leaves,” it said, “his heart enclose.”
Love long has taken for his amulet
One perfect rose.

Why is it no one ever sent me yet
One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it’s always just my luck to get
One perfect rose.”

Knight of My Maiden Love by Priscilla Jane Thompson

“Knight of my maiden love,
Stalwart and manly—
Ever my yearning heart searcheth for thee;
Searcheth the busy crowd;
Hearken its babble loud;
Yearning in secret, thy dear face to see.
Knight of my maiden love,
Stalwart and manly—
Tender thy words were, and tender thy mien;
Deep in my loving heart,
Thee, hath I set apart—
Prince of my fancy, and lord of my dream;
Knight of my maiden love, Stalwart and manly—
Calm and composed in thy presence I seem;
This is my sex decree—
Maidens must modest be;
And manly courage hath made thee my dream.
Knight of my maiden love,
Stalwart and manly—
‘Tis not thy noble form, I love the best;
Nay, ’tis thy tenderness,
Tempered with manliness,
Forming a noble heart,
deep in thy breast.”

Oh, Come to Me in Dreams, My Love by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelly

“Oh, come to me in dreams, my love!
I will not ask a dearer bliss;
Come with the starry beams, my love,
And press mine eyelids with thy kiss.
‘Twas thus, as ancient fables tell,
Love visited a Grecian maid,
Till she disturbed the sacred spell,
And woke to find her hopes betrayed.
But gentle sleep shall veil my sight,
And Psyche’s lamp shall darkling be,
When, in the visions of the night,
Thou dost renew thy vows to me.
Then come to me in dreams, my love,
I will not ask a dearer bliss;
Come with the starry beams, my love,
And press mine eyelids with thy kiss.”

Sonnet by Alice Moore Dunbar-Nelson

“I had not thought of violets late,
The wild, shy kind that spring beneath your feet
In wistful April days, when lovers mate
And wander through the fields in raptures sweet.
The thought of violets meant florists’ shops,
And bows and pins, and perfumed papers fine;
And garish lights, and mincing little fops
And cabarets and soaps, and deadening wines.
So far from sweet real things my thoughts had strayed,
I had forgot wide fields; and clear brown streams;
The perfect loveliness that God has made,—
Wild violets shy and Heaven-mounting dreams.
And now—unwittingly, you’ve made me dream
Of violets, and my soul’s forgotten gleam.”

When in the morning’s misty hour,
When the sun beams gently o’er each flower;
When thou dost cease to smile benign,
And think each heart responds with thine,
When seeking rest among divine,
                                    Forget me not.

When the last rays of twilight fall,
And thou art pacing yonder hall;
When mists are gathering on the hill,
Nor sound is heard save mountain rill,
When all around bids peace be still,
                                    Forget me not.

When the first star with brilliance bright,
Gleams lonely o’er the arch of night;
When the bright moon dispels the gloom,
And various are the stars that bloom,
And brighten as the sun at noon,
                                    Forget me not.

When solemn sighs the hollow wind,
And deepen’d thought enraps the mind;
If e’er thou doest in mournful tone,
E’er sigh because thou feel alone,
Or wrapt in melancholy prone,
                                    Forget me not. 

When bird does wait thy absence long,
Nor tend unto its morning song;
While thou art searching stoic page,
Or listening to an ancient sage,
Whose spirit curbs a mournful rage,
                                    Forget me not.

Then when in silence thou doest walk,
Nor being round with whom to talk;
When thou art on the mighty deep,
And do in quiet action sleep;
If we no more on earth do meet,
                                    Forget me not.

When brightness round thee long shall bloom,
And knelt remembering those in gloom;
And when in deep oblivion’s shade,
This breathless, mouldering form is laid,
And thy terrestrial body staid,
                                     Forget me not.

“Should sorrow cloud thy coming years,
And bathe thy happiness in tears,
Remember, though we’re doom’d to part,
There lives one fond and faithful heart,
                        That will forget thee not.”
