True Love Poems

True Love

True love is something so elusive that many refuse to accept that it exists. Their incredulity is understandable considering what a me-first world we live in. When people seek only to please themselves, they will never be capable of finding true love. True love is self sacrificing. True love is not blind to faults, but it is willing to look for the best in others, focus on their good qualities. True love is not principally about receiving, but rather true love looks for opportunities to give. True love between two people is the most precious of gifts. It is the one of the few things left in this world that can endure an entire lifetime, for true love is stronger even than death.

Poem of the Week
By Raiza Rafols

I wrote this poem for my ex-boyfriend when we were still together. I'm carrying his baby right now. Too late to find out that he still has a wife! For 1 year of being together, I never found out that they were not yet separated. Anyway, I wrote this poem before I found out everything about him. But I'm already carrying his child. I'm living my own life now and never talked to him again.

Time runs so fast,
Everything seems in a rush.
It happens like a lightning,
Oh sure! it was ecstatic but frightening!

Yesterday we were friends,
Today we are lovers.
Yesterday we like each other,
Today we are crazy about each other.

I can just imagine the heart-breaking reaction of my mom,
when I'll say soon her dear daughter will be a mom.
Thinking about it makes my heart torn apart,
and I could not stand seeing her being hurt.

So Dear, I may leave,
but my love for you will never fade.
I'll be back just to wind up a little bit,
So I'll say, "pls. wait".

I am looking at the clouds at the zenith,
Thinking of what life I would have when you're with?
It may not be as easy as what you think,
but as long as you love me, I know I won't sink.

Poem of the Week
By Heather Simcox

The Love Of My Life

A day to remember
I remember that very special day.
The day you walked into my life
And captivated my heart. And you
Took my breath away.
That day was so special to me, because
I got the chance to see you smile.
The chance to see that look in your eyes
The look that said I love you.
Each night when I went to bed I would
Lay my head back down, and I would pray,
Lord, don't let this be a dream because I
Know lord you brought him into my life.
And he's my only hope.
There was an empty place inside of my soul
It's the place that i've tried to fill over and over
And then that day my day to remember, when you
Became part of my life, you filled that empty place
And made my life complete.
And now my vow to you is to always love you no
Matter how bad things get. And to always be there
For you in good times and in bad. And to be your
Eternal soul mate.
Thank you for that very special day, a day to remember........ I love you...........

The woman for who I write this poem is my life. She haunts me every day and night. She lives in other country but I have hope someday we will live together on the reciprocal love. She is a good woman and I'm blessed to have her in my life.

if love can dry your tears
if love can comfort your fears
if love can bring you a smile
if love can make your life worth-while
if love can change your desert green
if love can push away your pain
if love can make you fly on a moving carpet
if love can let you see a magical sunset
if love can bloom your heart with rainbow
if love can let you sing like a yellow
if love can break your loneliness
if love can fill your emptiness
if love can refresh your soul
if love can make you feel complete and whole
if love can bring a sparkle into your eyes
if love can show you the world wonderful and nice
for eternity I will love you.

After being married for 29 years, my husband suddenly left me for another woman. Over the course of the next 8 months, we had the saddest time of our lives. My husband is now back with me and realizes we cannot live without each other. Both of us have had a ''shock'' in our lives at what we could have lost for all eternity. This poem is about how I feel about our love. We have been together since I was 15. We are very much in love, but there is still hurt and fear there.

I look into your eyes
And imprint your gaze in my memory
Not knowing if it will be the last time
You hold me so close

I breathe in your smell
And taste your skin
I turn and close my eyes
Quietly sighing a thousand sighs inside

I feel such promise when you hold me
I feel safety in your arms
I never want to leave here
But sleep a thousand sleeps

Now knowing what I lost
Makes the losing so much harder
When eventually we part
I will grieve for eternity

The second I leave you
I ache for you inside
When I see you again
My heart knows comfort

I know a love
That cannot be restrained
Unconditional and fathomless
An ocean of tears we have cried

I will never stop loving you
Never, never, never
It is all I know how to do
To love the us, the me and you

I love sharing my poems. Hope you enjoy

To find a love so strong and so true
it can send you to the moon
It is in everything you say or do
all because your love is so true

To find a true love is sometimes rare
you go through a lot to show you care
sometimes you do things the wrong way
only because you wanted some say

You run and run till you try to find
that person who is always on your mind
places you go are in your mind
while all along times still moves on

You start to wonder if it is for real
because now it is harder to deal
Your love in your soul is searching
for the special place it needs to heal

it is the place where you felt you belong
a place you felt at ease
Seeing a smile that warms your heart
to looking into your true loves eyes
is something to me that is so divine

all because he is always on my mind
they say time heal everything
but to heal a true love will take forever
so I will wait to the end of time

My love is for a girl whom I've let down too many times in the past through actions of selfishness. I was faithful, but my actions and involvement with the wrong crowd will forever remain the reason it didn't last the way I'm sure we both once wanted it too... and the way I still do now. I do not live with regret, I can only hope that by bettering myself someday both she and God will allow me a chance I know in my heart would be the last I'll ever need.

Some distance lies between us now,
In all aspects of the word,
Over mountain tops, yet under clouds,
Your whispers are still heard,

Hundreds of miles in between,
My very self and yours,
Yet I can feel you here right by my side,
Like the times spent by the shore,

There's a light in you that always glows,
And I've seen it through dark brush,
Your natural guidance lifts my soul,
And leads me through untouched,

You're the sense of sun following the rain,
And the light that casts all day,
Come dusk, you provide me with some shade,
And steal my dreams away,

Feelings of betrayal, greed, defiance;
Traits I'll forget to know,
Of all this world's demons and tyrants,
They'll never stop your glow,

There's your hand again,
Slipping deep into my soul,
Steady stretching towards my heart,
To warm what I've left cold,

Your light casts down, in the form of rays,
To assist where I've been wrong,
And your voice echoes over the land,
Sounds like the sweetest song,

Your will to love, care and help,
Pure like your very soul,
I've been lost and found in your eyes before,
Don't doubt the fact I know,

Your innocent, sweet, and loving,
True, honest and sincere,
Your everything I've known you were,
Since the day God sent you here,

There's your hand again,
Turning my life's light on,
And I used to think it was I, reaching,
When it's been you all along...

True friends can turn into true lovers, most women love to say, friends first, this poem talks of just that. It's a wonderful thing to be friends first, then, lovers!

You were just another true friend,
Time went on, our friendship got closer.
My feelings caught fire. You took me all in,
Now, we're truly wrapped together. yes we are.

You made me forget, my true past love,
I gave this love, another try with you.
Now, I've fallen, madly in love,
feelings I feel, moments are real. Here to stay!

My love, my friend, it started right here,
True friends we were, love creeping right in.
I love you now, you have no choice,
My feelings for you, can't be undone.

Just know my feelings are pure and true,
Just remember one thing, I will always love you

This is because it reminded me of someone I fell for :)

He is the murmur of my heart
Every little beat part by part,
He is the echo in my mind
Ever so sweet and ever so kind,
He is the blood running through my veins
Every little stabbing pain,
He is the lungs that keep me breathing
Enduring pain and grieving,
He is my eyes that let in light
And that pleasure me with many delights,
He is the living soul within me
The light that lets me see,
He is
my one and only.

I wrote this about a guy i thought i loved.

From the moment I saw you,
I couldn't believe my eyes,
I knew it was love at first sight,
and then the moment we met,
I even fell in more love,
I couldn't stop but to think of you each and everyday,
I couldn't stop but to think if you felt the same way,
every-time we hugged I got the butterflies,
and every-time you looked at me,
I couldn't help but to smile,
and when I would have the worse days of my life,
you were always there to turn it up right,
but never forget I will always truly love you

By Sonya Rose

Who knows love over time?
Hearts cry in open rhyme.
Birds sing in the night
As sun screams for light-
Drums relax; tempt to beat:
Together, soaring summer heat.
Winds are dancing; freely moving.
Sea between souls is grooving-
Yesterdays yearning, temptations toss:
Pages of photos become our loss.
Im sitting by a familiar stranger.
Waiting next to him, drawn to danger.
Hands glide over two in a plane;
Windows and rain.
He now knows he must love somehow,
Again, someone new, someone now;
But, he cant seem to find-
True love; shes always in his mind.
