1.’Let us be true’ by Matthew Arnold

Ah, love, let us be true
To one another! for the world, which seems
To lie before us like a land of dreams,
So various, so beautiful, so new,
Hath really neither joy, nor love, nor light,
Nor certitude, nor peace, nor help for pain;
And we are here as on a darkling plain
Swept with confused alarms of struggle and flight,
Where ignorant armies clash by night.

You‘re the right in my life
That removes every wrong
You’re the power in my life
That makes everything strong
You’re the remedy of my life
That cures every illness
You’re the calm in life
That diffuses all my stress

4. ‘A Red, Red Rose’ by Robert Burns

O my Luve is like a red, red rose
That’s newly sprung in June;
O my Luve is like the melody
That’s sweetly played in tune.

So fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
So deep in luve am I;
And I will love thee still, my dear,
Till a’ the seas gang dry.

Till a’ the seas gang dry, my dear,
And the rocks melt wi’ the sun;
I will love thee still, my dear,
While the sands o’ life shall run.

And fare thee wheel, my only luve!
And fare thee wheel awhile!
And I will come again, my love,
Though it were ten thousand miles.

6. ‘You’ve Made Me Change’ by Anonymous

You’ve made me change
The way I look at things
You’ve given me the belief
To blindly trust my instincts
You’ve instilled faith
In me like never before
Helping me to rise
Above petty things and soar
I’ve come this far because
You’ve always been with me
I can’t imagine what life
Without you would be
I love you

A promise, sealed with a kiss
To keep you happy forever
And never let our bond sever
Devoted, is every day of my life
To make you feel like the luckiest wife
Every wish that enters your thoughts
I’ll try to fulfill, no matter what
I love you

8. ‘I Don’t Care’ by Anonymous

I don’t care about money
I don’t care about wealth
I don’t care about happiness
I don’t care about health

I don’t care about security

I don’t care about prosperity
Because all of this
Will come naturally
As long as I have
You beside me
I love you

9. ‘Queen of My Heart’ by Anonymous

I’ll be the warrior to fight for our love;
We’ll fly together, fly higher than the dove.

I’ll take all the pains, for to me they are no stranger.
You’ll be the queen in the kingdom of my heart;
And then I’ll be the king, so we’ll never be apart.
You’ll be my majesty— I will serve you forever;
And for all of the times, I will leave you never

10. ‘Another Valentine’ by Wendy Cope

Today we are obliged to be romantic
And think of yet another Valentine.
We know the rules, and we are both pedantic:
Today’s the day we have to be romantic.
Our love is old and sure, not new and frantic.
You know I’m yours, and I know you are mine.
And saying that has made me feel romantic,
My dearest love, my darling valentine.

11. ‘Spring as a Season’ by Anonymous

Spring as a season
Would be dull and dreary
If you weren’t around
To make it flowery for me
Summer would be no fun
It would be so boring and bland
I wonder how I would survive
Can’t even begin to understand
Winter would be worse
Very gloomy and blue
It would be more horrible
To spend it without you
Every season of my life
Is beautiful with your presence
Without you there would be
No meaning to my existence
I love you

12. ‘I’ll Walk the Line’ by Anonymous

Your cuteness knows no bounds,
your beauty has no limit,
you are the only woman in the world,
to which I will commit.
I look at you and gasp in awe,
wondering how you’re mine,
you take my breath away my dear,
for you, I’ll walk the line.

13. ‘Bright Star’ by ‘John Keats’

Bright star, would I were steadfast as thou art–
Not in lone splendour hung aloft the night
And watching, with eternal lids apart,
Like nature’s patient, sleepless Eremite,
The moving waters at their priestlike task
Of pure ablution round earth’s human shores,
Or gazing on the new soft-fallen mask
Of snow upon the mountains and the moors–
No–yet still steadfast, still unchangeable,
Pillow’d upon my fair love’s ripening breast,
To feel for ever its soft fall and swell,
Awake forever in a sweet unrest,
Still, still to hear her tender-taken breath,
And so live ever–or else swoon to death.

14. ‘If You Were a Celebrity’ by Anonymous

If you were a celebrity
I’d be your biggest fan
If you were the sun
I’d be the awesome tan
If you were an actress
I’d be the camera
If you were a candle
I would be a spa
Whatever you would be
I would be your ally
In short, without you
I would surely die
I love you

15. ‘You Came Into My Life’ by Anonymous

You came into my life like a star
And filled my heart with joy
You took my pain as if it was yours
And gave me love that no one could.
You gave me a shoulder to cry on
You were my pillar when I was falling
You were my strength when I felt low
With your smile, you made my living on earth worthwhile.

16. ‘A Drinking Song’ by WB Yeats

Wine comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That’s all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
I look at you, and I sigh.

17. ‘It Isn’t My Fault’ by Anonymous

It isn’t my fault
At you, if you I keep staring
I am not to be blamed
On you, if I keep waiting
Don’t look at it as a blunder|
If we lap up some PDA
It is not my problem
If I flirt with you in teeny ways
It is not my mistake
If I act too haughtily
I ought to do these things
For I have such a pretty wifey
I love you

18. ‘We Are Made One With What We Touch and See’ by Oscar Wilde

And we two lovers shall not sit afar,
Critics of nature, but the joyous sea
Shall be our raiment, and the bearded star
Shoot arrows at our pleasure! We shall be
Part of the mighty universal whole,
And though all Aeons mix
And mingle with the Kosmic soul!
We shall be notes in the great symphony
Whose cadence circles through the rhythmic spheres,
And all the live world’s throbbing heart shall be
One without heart, the stealthy creeping years
Have lost their terrors now, we shall not die,
The universe itself shall be our immortality!

19. ‘A Smile’ by Anonymous

A smile is such a lovely thing especially upon your face;
hiding all the sorrows or simply taking their place.
A kindly spoken word means so much when from you,
it comforts my weary heart or when I’m feeling blue.
A song can make our hearts dance in pretty fast-paced clips
when we hear the melody of our love’s unconquerable grips.
Words could lift my spirits and sweet compassion find;
put your hand in mine alone and peace will fill my mind.
A smile, a word, a song, a look – seem small little things
but when love sparks an action, what blessings they bring.

20. ‘A Thread Connects’ by Anonymous

A thread connects you and me
A thread so magical, that no one else can see
It binds us together in the strongest ways
Protecting us from the toughest of days
That miraculous thread is our marriage
Of being together, it has made me pledge
To which I’ll abide no matter what
My dearest wife, I love you a lot

21. ‘Sonnet 130’ by William Shakespeare

My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red than her lips’ red;
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damask’d, red and white,
But no such roses see I in her cheeks;
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
I love to hear her speak, yet well I know
That music hath a far more pleasing sound;
I grant I never saw a goddess go;
My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground:
And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
As any, she belied with false compare.

Short Love Poems for Your Wife

1. Hand in hand, we walk together.
God’s grace warms us from above.
It’s him I thank each day I wake
for blessing me with all your love.

2. It is hard to describe the feeling of love
The feeling of your heart skipping a beat
Or of flying like that of a dove
These are the feelings I have when we meet.

3. Win the day, honeybun!
Show ‘em you’re number one!
If the world ever turns back on you
Smile! Coz to me, my world is you!

Funny Love Poems for Your Wife

1. ‘Roses are Red’ by Anonymous

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Let’s stay in bed
I think you get the clue!

2. ‘Stuck on You’ by © Kenneth J. Miller

You’re sucrose, you’re glucose,
You’re fructose and more,
From your head to your feet…
Which are stuck to the floor.

You’re Hershey’s, you’re Snickers,
You’re sweet English Toffee.
If you spit in my cup,
You’ll just sweeten my coffee.

I love you so much
That I’m getting frenetic,
But I can’t even kiss you,
’cause I’m diabetic.

3. ‘Am I fat?’ by Anonymous

If you ask me if you’re fat
Behold! It’s a trap!
If I say “Nope”
You’ll call me ‘dope’…
If I say “Yes”
You’ll think I care less…
If I go silent
You’ll start to vent.
So I’d rather say
“I love you
Want a pizza or two?”

Deep Love Poem for Your Wife

1. ‘The Reason I Love My Wife’ by Anonymous

You’ve always asked me why I love you
Sweetheart, it’s not just your lovely eyes
That at times glitter in tears…
It’s not just your luscious lips
that I sometimes fail to notice.
It’s everything about you, my dear
That makes me feel complete.
Yes, your smile that lits my darkest
Your forbearing love and care
Beyond what’s expected.

2. ‘A Gift From God’ by © Dino

So young, so fresh, so new
The love and passion I felt for you.
I loved you so and you said yes
A gift from God, I was blessed

A beautiful woman with a heart so true
The love and passion I still feel for you
Throughout the pregnancy as you carry our son
A gift from God, I’m the lucky one

A wonderful mother and wife
The love and passion for all my life
A gift from God you truly are
A blessing from above to the luckiest man by far.

3. ‘I Loved You First’ 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.

4. ‘The Dream’ by Edna St. Vincent Millay

Love, if I weep it will not matter,
And if you laugh I shall not care;
Foolish am I to think about it,
But it is good to feel you there.

Love, in my sleep I dreamed of waking,—
White and awful the moonlight reached
Over the floor, and somewhere, somewhere,
There was a shutter loose,—it screeched!

Swung in the wind,—and no wind blowing!—
I was afraid, and turned to you,
Put out my hand to you for comfort,—
And you were gone! Cold, cold as dew,

Under my hand the moonlight lay!
Love, if you laugh I shall not care,
But if I weep it will not matter,—
Ah, it is good to feel you there!

5. ‘When Compliments Pay Best’ by © Amos Russel Wells

Your wife is growing old, man,
The white is in her hair,
But winsome to behold, man,
As when a maiden fair.

For there’s an autumn beauty
More charming than the spring;
The grace of love and duty,
It is a wondrous thing!

Then tell your wife ’tis so, man,—
It’s better lore than books,—
For women like to know, man,
That men still like their looks.

And maybe she will tell you,
For she’s a guileful tongue,
The years so kindly spell you
That you are looking young!

Famous Love Poems for Your Wife

1. ‘Lifeline’ by © Marcus Ditsworth

Like a skydiver needs a parachute
Like a singer needs to sing
And God breathes life into all living things
Like the water in the ocean
That all swimming creatures need to survive
And a baby’s love for his mother
Because there is a sparkle in her eye
Like the sun shinning on your face
I swear there are angels on high
This is how I see my love for you
So now let me tell you why
You are my lifeline
So I can soar into new things
Just like an eagle that is gliding on his wings.

2. ‘Wild Nights – Wild Nights’ by Emily Dickinson

Wild nights – Wild nights!
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 – tonight –
In thee!

3. ‘To My Wife’ by © Jerry Boettcher

On this day we said our vows.
Now is a time to say just how
Much I appreciate you.

God-crafted for me alone,
You’ve done so well to make our home
A place of nurture and love.

Smoothing out my obtuse corners,
You help to make our family warmer
To the people who surround us.

I love you as much as on day one,
Even though many years have gone
By in the blink of a moment.

I am so happy I have years more
To be with you and to adore…

4. ‘Somewhere I Have Never Travelled, Gladly Beyond’ by E.E. Cummings

Somewhere i have never travelled, gladly beyond
any experience, your eyes have their silence:
in your most frail gesture are things which enclose me,
or which I cannot touch because they are too near

your slightest look easily will unclose me
though I have closed myself as fingers,
you open always petal by petal myself as Spring opens
(touching skilfully, mysteriously)her first rose

or if your wish be to close me, I and
my life will shut very beautifully, suddenly,
as when the heart of this flower imagines
the snow carefully everywhere descending;

nothing which we are to perceive in this world equals
the power of your intense fragility: whose texture
compels me with the colour of its countries,
rendering death and forever with each breathing

(i do not know what it is about you that closes
and opens; only something in me understands
the voice of your eyes is deeper than all roses)
nobody, not even the rain, has such small hands.

5. ‘I Love You For What You Are’ by Carl Sandberg

I love you for what you are,
But I love you yet more for what you are going to be.
I love you not so much for your realities as for your ideals.
I pray for your desires that they may be great,
Rather than for your satisfactions, which may be so hazardously little.
A satisfied flower is one whose petals are about to fall.
The most beautiful rose is one hardly more than a bud
Wherein the pangs and ecstasies of desire are working for a larger and finer growth.
Not always shall you be what you are now.
You are going forward toward something great.
I am on the way with you and therefore I love you.

I Love You Poems for Your Wife

1. ‘Love Is’ by Adrian Henri

Love is feeling cold in the back of vans
Love is a fan club with only two fans
Love is walking holding paint-stained hands
Love is
Love is fish and chips on winter nights
Love is blankets full of strange delights
Love is when you don’t put out the light
Love is
Love is the presents in Christmas shops
Love is when you’re feeling top of the Pops
Love is what happens when the music stops
Love is
Love is white panties lying all forlorn
Love is a pink nightdress still slightly warm
Love is when you have to leave at dawn
Love is
Love is you and love is me
Love is a prison and love is free
Love’s what’s there when you’re away from me
Love is…

2. ‘To The One I Love’ by Anonymous

To the one I love, the one I adore,
My only goal in life, the one I live for –
Though we might fight more than we get along,
I hope our relationship will never go wrong.
I love to be with you, I love you around;
I’m so glad I’m the one you found.
Though you may not see what you mean to me,
My love for you will always be.
I know you love me and I know you care;
That’s why I treasure the love we share.
I want you to know I’m here for you,
Whatever it is I’ll help you through.
To the one I love, the one I adore,
My love grows every day more and more.

3. ‘Love Song’ by Mary Carolyn Davies

here is a strong wall about me to protect me:
It is built of the words you have said to me.

There are swords about me to keep me safe:
They are the kisses of your lips.

Before me goes a shield to guard me from harm:
It is the shadow of your arms between me and danger.

All the wishes of my mind know your name,
And the white desires of my heart
They are acquainted with you.
The cry of my body for completeness,
That is a cry to you.
My blood beats out your name to me,
unceasing, pitiless
Your name, your name.

4. ‘Without You’ by © Alon Calinao Dy

I love you,
I can’t think of a better way
To spend my life
To be with you everyday.
I think about you every minute.
I hope you think about me.
There’s no other place,
I would rather be.
Just a glimpse of your face,
You make my life complete.
You make it simple and easy.
I love you, my baby.
Don’t ever leave me.
I don’t want to be alone.
I couldn’t survive without you.
I think I’d die out on my own
‘Cause I don’t know what else to do
Without you…
