Need a Valentines poem that perfectly declares you love? Try one of these from some of our best-known poets.

How Do I Love Thee – Elizabeth Barrett Browning

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.

I love thee to the depth and breadth and height

My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight

For the ends of being and ideal grace.

I love thee to the level of every day’s

Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.

I love thee freely, as men strive for right.

I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.

I love thee with the passion put to use

In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.

I love thee with a love I seemed to lose

With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath,

Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,

I shall but love thee better after death.

Why I Love Thee? - Sadakichi Hartmann

Why I love thee?

Ask why the seawind wanders,

Why the shore is aflush with the tide,

Why the moon through heaven meanders;

Like seafaring ships that ride

On a sullen, motionless deep;

Why the seabirds are fluttering the strand

Where the waves sing themselves to sleep

And starshine lives in the curves of the sand!

Longing - Paul Laurence Dunbar

If you could sit with me beside the sea to-day,

And whisper with me sweetest dreamings o’er and o’er;

I think I should not find the clouds so dim and gray,

And not so loud the waves complaining at the shore.

If you could sit with me upon the shore to-day,

And hold my hand in yours as in the days of old,

I think I should not mind the chill baptismal spray,

Nor find my hand and heart and all the world so cold.

If you could walk with me upon the strand to-day,

And tell me that my longing love had won your own,

I think all my sad thoughts would then be put away,

And I could give back laughter for the Ocean’s moan!


Still looking for that perfect message? Why don’t we leave it to the experts. From writers and poets to singers and philosophers, from long ago all the way through to the modern day, their stories on love never grow old.

  • “I wish you to know that you have been the last dream of my soul” – Charles Dickens (A Tale of Two Cities)
  • "I don’t want to live—I want to love first, and live incidentally." — Zelda Fitzgerald
  • "I love you because the entire universe conspired to help me find you." — Paulo Coelho
  • "If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day, so I never have to live without you." – A.A. Milne
  • “You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.” – Dr Seuss
