1. Right Here 

You can now rest your eyes,
please allow me to draw close.
Betwixt the mattress and covers you lay,
a restful and peaceful night to impose.
I know you’re afraid to drift off,
the fear you hold, I understand.
You fear having nobody when you awaken,
alone and desolate in this land.
But no matter what demands my attention,
no being, no man nor beast,
could ever make me abandon you,
or cause my love to cease.
We can face what lies ahead together,
I will never leave your side.
The course, the plan, the direction in life,
I will help you decide.
So when the moon gives way to the sun,
or when the stars are shielded by clouds,
you will have nothing to fear.
For no matter what becomes of us,
I will be right here.

2. Embrace of Night 

My darling, my dear, my truest love,
I lament that the day must end.
For more joyous time with you,
I wish to spend.

Fret not as the blankets cover you,
or when your eyes drift to a close.
Your night is only going to get better and better,
as you lay there, dreaming of us here together.

The moon will keep its watchful gaze on you,
and the starlight will proceed to glimmer.
I hope you feel the love I have for you,
its warmth continuing to linger.

The bump in the night,
the obscurity of the dark,
both things you should never fear,
for I will make sure that the embrace of night will disappear.

3. Goodnight 

A woman returns home after a long day,
tired, haggard, but still smiling,
knowing the good she has done today.

She has done all she needed to do,
her work exceptional, top-notch.
A lot of good she has done for herself and the others in her life.

Finally, the night has come,
now you’d think she’d finally rest.
She, however, takes more time out of her day,
for those who need it.
Checking on her friends,
making sure they’re okay,
ready and willing to listen to anything they have to say.A truly selfless woman she is,
giving so much to others.
It is finally time for her to think of herself,
so rest well, and goodnight.

4. Sweet Dreams

The pets gathering around your sleeping form,
to shield you from the chaos,
of a world so cosmically torn.

Your beauty prevails,
all through the rays of the run,
and the shade of the moon.
Through the phases of the day,
morning, night, and noon.

My dreams are filled with the sweetest scenarios,
when I sleep right by your side.
The time I get to spend with you,
to me is a great source of everlasting pride.

I only hope that your dreams are as kind to you,
as you are to me.
And that you find much comfort in them,
even through the calming abyss of sleep.

5. Race Home Like the Clouds 

The clouds have turned orange
And are swiftly running to their home.
I, on the other hand, am still here waiting.
Fully clad with the hope
That someday,
I will race home like the clouds
To spend the night with my girl
never thinking of the distance between us
But until then,
Goodnight, mine.

6. Spell of Your Presence 

It is nighttime
An opportunity to happily think backward
Into the daytime hours spent in your company
I wished there were words enough
To expound how excited I was
To be held by the spell of your presence
And the warmth of your lips
Let’s do it again, honey
For tomorrow is another day for us.

7. Just Like the Moon 

Just like the moon is bright
You become what is of light.
You came to show me to love right
These are moments I will always write.

Just like the moon you rule with ease
Bringing me freedom, love and peace
And a heart with emotions that never cease.
I love how we love and also tease.

Just like the moon the white ruler and Queen
I will love you and be your King.
I swear by the finger with the ring
My love has just my heart for you to sing.

8. This Is Not the End

We started with fresh mornings
Streaming through our lips
We touched forth our hearts
And laid our words with the sun.

We may have called today by its name
When goodbye found our ways
Know it is not the end
For my heart still beats for you.

Starlight hold these skies
But not my goodbyes, at least until rain comes.
So while the night covers this day
Now, this is not the end.
I love you all night.

9. Reminiscent Nights 

It is that time again
Where the cricket wakes to its morning
And the butterflies slowly disappear.

It is that time again
Where the clouds become same with darkness
And the waters warm with my love.

It is that time again
When my arms longs for you
My lips are hungry to feed into yours.

It is that time again
When my love grows deeper
To break boundaries.

It is that time again
When my memories remember only you
When my thoughts are with a sun of you.

It is that time again
When I say what I always say
But from the heart.
I love you baby, even tonight.

10. Dusk

As the night skies keep the stars in sigh
My soul has become with yours a romantic light
To think of you is a curtain in my wind
When on my mind is you I find.

To be with you is always a desire
So I love and fell as I try to retire.
The moon is just a phase to rid me your face
I know its radiance will heal this solace.

The easiness of this feeling makes me smile
And how I want this to last longer than a while.
This cool breeze brings thoughts so lovely
Knitted in my mind to look beautiful.

To this night that homes my silent night
Know that I want you to have a goodnight.

11. A Million Smiles

I hear myself with the shelling of the night

Break into a million smile

Thinking and sinking into ocean thoughts

You as a life jacket, you as a thought.

Whenever the wind breaks on my roof

It brings your scent and kisses like rain

It blows whispers of your name as my sweetness

So I find a reason to live above the clouds

No matter what thick blackness covers my room

My heart is full of light for you

Showing me moons and stars of you.

Know tonight’s, you will be the sun.

12. You Are A Startled Star

I want to be your blanket

Covering the troubles from you

Touching your fears like the bed

Gossiping with the sheets

Echoes of your heart.

I want to be your light

Guiding you through the night

Telling you I exist to chase your fears away

To right your wrong turns

To open your heart and let the love into mine.

I want to be your sound

Whispering past your ears, fixing words into your soul

Saying love, love, love. I want to be your sweet night love.

13. When The Whole World Sleeps

During the dark time of the day

I know it is night for me to find alone

To think of the kisses of the day

To wish to be held by this time.

When the world sleeps, you come in my dreams

Always showing the deep part of your heart

Telling of love

Whispering of laughter.

I want our shadows to feel each other

Let their weight be felt like you’re here

Come to me so we make magic happen

As I call you my girl

The light of my world.

14. When Night Finds Us

In the midst of all we sought

In love or sweetness.

I didn’t think twice about you

You became a wonderful story

That the night aches to tell

With sweet candles or fun

Love notes dispersed

I like the water that holds us tight

So we flow in this love

Emotions outpoured and fears found

We are imperfect to live but flawlessly in love.

When night finds us

Let us be wrapped tight in each other’s arms.

Let us love willingly.

Sweet Goodnight Poems for Wife

Your wife will be happy to read your words of love as she prepares for bed. So, pick out a heart-touching goodnight poem for her so that she falls asleep with a smile on her face:

1. The Warmness of the Night

I have tried to express my feelings
In the waking of the day.
I have caressed your face in the heat of today,
Most times at night I feel the flutter of my heart.

I have always shone you how I feel
It is like how proud the moon sits for the skies
And the stars are in the splendour of my emotions
Tickling the skies
And showering light to those finding the dark.

I always made a beautiful decision
Of making a life with you,
No stutters find my heart
No matter the blackness of the night.

Just so this night
Know it is not different from what I have always said
I will love you in the morning or at night.
I will let your emotions show me the light.

2. You Are Only Mine

Mine forever, that’s true.
You and no other, that too.
I don’t mind giving my everything to you.

To secure and protect you, girl.
You are always on my mind.
Even when there’s no cloud left in the night.

Oh girl! You are only mine.
Goodnight, my baby.

3. I Wish We Were Together Tonight 

We can face time, we can talk all night,
But all I want is to hug you and let you know,
That you mean the world to me.

We can tweet or talk on Facebook,
But I wish I could give you endless kisses.

We could Instagram and we could text,
But more than anything, I wish we could cuddle
And snuggle all night with no shred of worry.

Goodnight, princess.

4. A Lovely Poem 

From the onset
I made it clear to myself
That I will never be elsewhere
But with this one, I cherish it with all my heart.

Even if circumstances threaten my decision,
They will fail woefully
Because I have got my goodnight kisses
As a backup plan,
Well-packaged and sent through this lovely poem.

I hope you’ll love them.

5. Never Let You Go

The day I met you
Was the day I swore
To never let you go.

So much about you
Gives me joy, peace
And hope that someday
I will have you to hold and to cherish.

Before my dream comes true,
Have a goodnight, babe.

6. Funny Heart

I have a funny heart
That knows no shame
As it beats ferociously
And flutters its wings excitedly
To the wind of your presence.

In your kindness,
You could suggest a heart check
To keep safe.

But I am fine
If not better
With my funny heart.


7. Seasons

Summer leaves
Broad and happy
Winter ice
Bright and classy
You, my baby
Fun and pretty
Are much more than seasons
And reasons.
I love you
For whom you are.

8. Calmness of the Night

If anyone wants to behold natural,
unfeigned beauty,
Let him have a peek
At your reposing face.
In the calmness of the night,
Your loveliness causes
Uncontrollable stirs
Deep in the pit of my stomach.
Enjoy a beautiful sleep, my princess.

9. We Make the Perfect Team 

I know I don’t express my feelings quite well
But that doesn’t mean I don’t cherish or value what we have.
I am a typical guy that’s too afraid
to say how much you brighten my life
I feel more than lucky to be called yours
In so many ways, I don’t think I deserve someone so perfect
But I know we make the perfect team
I love you and have a splendid night ahead.

10. From the Moment

From the moment our eyes met
And we felt that shortness of breath
From the racing of our hearts
To the fireworks and sparks
From the moment we said “I do”
And promised each other to be true
From the moment we made a new life
And I write this sweet poem for my wife
From the moment I had to go
Till I return to the one I adore
From the moment you lay down to sleep
Know my love for you is deep.

11. While You Sleep

Your adorable snores fill the air,

I hope your dreams are soft and pleasant

Don’t mind me, continue to rest,

for the night was dark and deep.

There are many things I need to do,

all while you sleep.

I hope you don’t notice me gone,

I’m just in the kitchen, slaving over the stove,

making your favorite meal.

I hope the sweet aroma awakes you,

but don’t wake just yet.

The tea still needs to steep,

and I have many things I need to do,

all while you sleep.

I have to run to the store,

and shop for your gift.

You deserve to be spoiled,

you’ve been doing so well these past few weeks.

I hope this present I have for you,

will give your spirits a lift.

I’m back home now.

Don’t worry, I won’t make a peep,

but I’m so excited for you to see

all that awaits you, while you sleep.

12. Sleep Well, My Darling

Sleep well, that’s all you have to do.

Not for me, not for anyone else,

but only for you.

The world has not been kind to anyone,

not to mothers or daughters,

nor fathers nor sons.

It has been a rather tough sequence of days,

but seeing your rise through all the pain,

all the hardship, even when you feel the weight of the Earth upon your very shoulders,

has given us all hope for a new day.

But for now, you must sleep well.

The troubles that plague you

vanish in the land of dreams.

So sleep well, for the morning bears chances anew.

Short Goodnight Poems for Wife

1. Heartbeat 

Listen to the coordinated sound of my heartbeat
Written boldly in letters meant for your eyes alone.
I miss you and that settles it
For I will be right there by your side
Before the breaking of the dawn.
Goodnight, empress.

2. No Matter Where I Go 

No matter where I go
I carry you in my heart
Mountains regardless

I bear you in my heart
Never letting go of you for any pain
Determined to share the gains
Of staying put for you.
Goodnight, honey.

Experience and time

The magic of our union
We are meant for each other
Through thick and thin.

To write you a blissful goodnight wish.
Goodnight, my darling.

Until the dark loses its stars
And the moon loses its light
There will be a sweet goodnight in my heart.
The fire within me burns fiercely
As you kiss my forehead lightly
Sleep well, my queen

5. A Late Goodnight 

I woke up with a start
As one who forgot to do the needful
For his lover who anticipates his farewell messages
Pardon me, my love
For while I was fantasizing about you
I drifted off to sleep.
This isn’t a goodbye message though,
I love you very much.

6. Us 

In the end,
All that will make waves is,
You and me together
As we move mountains
And spring forth from valleys.
It’s our time, baby
To be us, nothing holds us back.

7. Be Safe 

We are counting in hours
Before the night pushes its heavy self
Into the face of the earth.
Be safe for me, my love.
It’s just a goodnight,
And never goodbye.

8. Never Stop Loving Me 

The light of your love
Pierces through the eyes of darkness
That stare mockingly into my soul.
It reflects,
And bounces off my terror.
Never stop loving me, baby.

9. Mine Forever

My eyes finally saw a glimpse of heaven
My heart finally discovered its desire
I will never say goodbye,
Neither will I depart your side
Only saying goodnight,
And that I cherish you for being mine forever.

10. Wants

I want to tell you
That I want to be a part of your night
To be wanted by you
And to live like the wants of my lover.
Will you oblige me the honour?

11. As You Fall Asleep

As you fall asleep, please know

That I have you in my heart.

I see your face and love your soul,

And know your body like a chart.

12. Don’t Fall Asleep

Please don’t fall asleep my dear.

Stay awake and whisper in my ear.

Tell me the secrets of your heart,

And how we will never be apart.

13. You Are My Everything

Goodnight my darling wife.

You are my everything —

My sun, my stars, the air I breathe,

The woman I’ve dreamed of,

My place of reprieve.

14. The Beacon of My Dreams

Goodnight, goodnight my shining light,

The beacon of my dreams.

You’ve reached inside my heart and sewn

The broken pieces together again.

With you, I feel whole and happy and free —

A love I have never known.

Goodnight, goodnight my shining light.

I’m lucky to call you my own.

It’s bedtime for both of us, it’s time to get snuggled up,

So let’s get all tucked in under the covers,

Let’s get together all closeup,

Now it’s time for us to rest, after another long day of fun together,

You really are the best, I look forward to being with you forever,

So let’s relax, chill and sleep,

No more thoughts or worries are needed just relax,

So let’s drift into a sleep so deep,

As if floating on the soundwaves of my sax.

Nightmares, be gone!

Sleeplessness, out, will you?!

Clear the coast, armies of safety

For my sweetheart to dwell in her paradise of sleep

Until the right time for awakeness.

Forget about all the bad things that happened today

Remember all the nice ones

Forget all the nasty stuff people had to say

Just think of all the fun

Remember the times when you did a good deed

Forget all the wrongs and rights

Tuck yourself for a long night’s sleep

Just bidding you a sweet good night
