Love Poems - From the Heart

Updated on August 8, 2014

Love Poems - Poetry From The Heart

By Loretta Livingstone

I love a love poem. Better still, I love to write my own love poems. Most of us think of love poems as just for a lover - but consider how many people we love. Our parents, our siblings, and not forgetting those precious furbabies - our pets. But it is always good to read love poems about sweethearts. I hope you enjoy reading these.

Some Loved Up Stuff

Some nice ideas for gifts for loved ones here. I'm rather partial to chocolates which are a bit out of the ordinary myself. I thought the heart with wings was rather unusual too. And Love Letters of Great Men sounds absolutely fascinating.

Because You Love Me

"Because you love me

the bad times aren't so bad

the good times are more fun

things are always

lifted out of the commonplace

into something special

The sun shines a little brighter

the birds sing a little sweeter

my heart is always more full

all because you love me"

Fun Love Poems

Poetry doesn't always have to be serious. You can tell someone you love them in a fun way too.

A Silly Love Poem

"A Silly Ode

You're the 0 in my H2

The bubble in my champagne

My candle's wick, ink in my pen

My puddle in the rain

Can't wash my face in plain H2

An inkless pen won't write

I don't like flat champagne, do you?

And wickless wax won't light

If I'm the oyster, you're the pearl

I cherish in my heart

I'll stick to you like superglue

So we can't be prised apart

But, jokes apart, I wish I knew

Exactly how to say

My love for you is strong and true

And deeper every day

What Do YOU Want From Love?

Love Poems

Some like straightforward love poems, some love funny poems. Which do you prefer?

I like

See results

And here's to the ones who got away!

Early loves are not always the best loves, but at the time we think they are. This one got away, but there was another, far better, waiting for me a few years down the track. However at the time I wrote this, I didn't know that!

Three Books

My latest book, Where Angels Tread, is my first novelette.

Jeannie, a teenaged girl is kicked out by her mother, Rita. Stalked by Matt, alone and afraid, is it time for her guardian angel to step in? I will be donating 10% of sales of this book to a charity for the homeless.

Rhythms of Life and Jumping in the Puddles of Life are charming books of verse to inspire you, make you laugh, or maybe bring a tear to your eye. Sigh, chuckle, maybe say a prayer.

Rhythms Of Life
Rhythms Of Life
A cheerful book, to make you smile

      I love these cut love poems. They are adorable. I just love poems so maybe I'm a little biased?
