If you don’t have time to write your own poem or are suffering from a serious case of writer’s block, then you’ve come to the right place! Here’s a helping hand from Mr Roses. Check out this list of the most romantic poems written by some well-respected poets:

Touched by an Angel by Maya Angelou

We, unaccustomed to courage
exiles from delight
live coiled in shells of loneliness
until love leaves its high holy temple
and comes into our sight
to liberate us into life.
Love arrives
and in its train come ecstasies
old memories of pleasure
ancient histories of pain.
Yet if we are bold,
love strikes away the chains of fear
from our souls.
We are weaned from our timidity
In the flush of love's light
we dare be brave

And suddenly we see
that love costs all we are
and will ever be.
Yet it is only love
which sets us free.

 

Each Year I Fall In Love Again With You by Joanna Fuchs

When I first met you all those years ago,
I fell in love so fast, I knew right then,
You were the one and only one for me;
I'd never have to look for love again.
Each anniversary finds us happier;
You are my light--my moon, my star, my sun.
You show me what real love is all about,
You fill my life with pleasure, joy and fun.
As time goes by, our love grows stronger still.
You're the most amazing (man/woman) I ever knew.
I prize our anniversaries because
Each year I fall in love again with you.

 

Wild Nights! Wild Nights! by Emily Dickinson

Were I with thee,
Wild nights should be
Our luxury!
Futile the winds
To a heart in port,
Done with the compass,
Done with the chart.
Rowing in Eden!
Ah! the sea!
Might I but moor
To-night in thee!

 

 

Dreams by William Scott

I gaze at your pictures 
As I go to sleep,
I can hear your voice
It sounds oh so sweet
I then close my eyes
And sleep the night through,
The dreams that I have
Are of me and you.
I awake in the morning
I know this is real,
This dream that I'm in
It feels so surreal.
I whisper your name
And say I love you,
I tell you my dreams
They're of me and you.
You look in my eyes
And hold me so tight,
The fears that we have
Will soon have respite.
I cannot contain
My feelings for you,
My heart is set free
It belongs only to you.

 

 


Than ever before

Whenever I need a tender shoulder to cry on
I know you will wipe away the tears.
Last night I fell in love with you
All over again
With more respect
Than ever before
I look up to you and admire your strength
In turn you have strengthen me.
Last night I fell in love with you
All over again
With such care
Than ever before
Now I truly believe how much you care for me
You have given me life.
Last night I fell in love with you
All over again
With more happiness
Than ever before
You have brought back to me smiles and laughter
Through your loving eyes.
Last night I fell in love with you
All over again
With more love
Than ever before
For the first time in a long time
I have really felt love.
