Inspiring Poems about Love

Updated on March 9, 2015

The Power of Love In Helping Us To Improve Our Lives

In this lens, I've selected poetry that is intended to inspire people with its messages about love. These poems are about the awesome power of love in changing our lives for the better by encouraging us to follow our hearts and dreams in guiding us to find our unique destiny. Love also enables us to reach our full human potential by cultivating compassion for all the living beings on our great planet thus expanding our consciousness and appreciating the true miracle that all life is.

The Dawn of A New Day

The Power of Love In Helping Us Change Our Lives

Today I Say A Prayer For The Gift of Life

Today, I see a lovely flower
and look at it as if for the first time.
I see how beautiful my child is
and thank God for the most precious gift
which he has given me.
I look at her soft, radiant eyes and
her sweet little face;
I feel her little body wrapped in my arms...
so grateful to have her to love and to hold.

Let me realize just how valuable is today...
to explore my talents,
no matter how they may be judged;
free me from restraint to tell those that I love,
to fully experience the breadth
of my humanity...
not to cower in a corner-
always afraid to reach out
or speak what I believe to be true.

Awaken my spiritality,
let me experience what it is like
to stand on a mountain top-
filled with a moment of eternity,
to feel part of what was before...
now... and will be.
Let something of me remain after I'm gone-
to reveal that I lived and had something to say.

Give me insight to see before I act
so as not to cause another pain or injury.
Let me have empathy for all sentient beings...
to realize there's a sanctity about all life,
and let not money or power corrupt my soul...
help me today to stop excusing my limitations
by accepting the challenge to
change and become a better person.

-Marie Lawrence

Give Thanks for My Life

Awakening - "I Choose Love" - I Choose Love ~ Shawn Gallaway

This is a video which shows how we can choose to live our lives with love and create a more peaceful world uniting us all as one people who can tackle important challenges of the future, such as climate change, saving our wildlife, and our planet, if we can work and live together in harmony. We have the choice to create a brighter tomorrow for our children and future generations- a world where there's no place for hatred or violence toward any living being. A world where we all learn to respect each other for the special gifts that we have and where all people have a chance to contribute these gifts and lead rewarding lives.

To Feel The Miracle of Love - Mother and Child by Chris O'Malley

Surely This Must Be Heaven

Surely This Must Be Heaven

Surely this must be heaven...
when I can look up into the treetops
and see the light rays streaming
through gently swaying leaves.

Surely this must be heaven...
when you hold me in your arms
with such tenderness,
and I hear the beating of your heart
so close to mine.

Surely this must be heaven...
when my little dog
with his calming presence
helps to relieve the burden of my worries
and loves me so devotedly.

Surely this must be heaven,
when I feel my child
in the grasp of an embrace...
and I thank God
for the precious gift of life-
to feel the miracle of love.

~Marie Lawrence

Let's be Friends - Dolphin and Dog Become True Friends

Animals also show an amazing capacity to form deep bonds of affection with each other even with members from another species enriching their lives as well.

We see in this video of a true friendship between a dolphin and a dog that these animals' affection for each other not only parallels our own but that they have the capacity for empathy or the ability to understand and share the feelings of others too. Thus we cannot limit empathy only to human beings.

Cute Cat Befriends Dolphins - We Don't Have to be Alike to Like Each Other

Cat befriends dolphin in this charming video which shows that animals, once again, can develop bonds of friendship with each other even crossing the boundaries between species. Maybe animals can teach us to be more tolerant of our differences, and instead connect with others on a deeper, more spiritual level.

      What an apt hub for this time of year. I would agree that people can love their pets, especially since they effectively become part of the family. The bond that you share with others isn't solely tied to other humans. Great hub :)
