However, there are so many examples of romantic poetry available; why not come up with something more original?

Romantic poetry is something women love to receive and most men struggle to give. While your girlfriend or wife might like to receive an original love message or poem from you, you can find book after book of poetry at the local library or bookstore. Include some of these sayings, messages or poetry in your cards, letters or emails whenever you want to let your loved one know how you feel about them.

Do you need help getting your creative juices flowing? Use the following as a jumping off point if you decide to try to personalize your cards, letters or email messages to the one you love.

According to Elizabeth Browning, “Love doesn’t make the world go round; love is what makes the ride worthwhile.” You could write something along the lines of “People say that life is a journey and maybe that’s true. Through the hills and vales and I’m to be traveling with you.”

Leo Buscaglia stated “Love is always bestowed as a gift – freely, willingly, and without expectation . . . We don’t love to be loved; we love to love.” To complete the card you could write “I am blessed to be loved and be loved by you.”

The ancient philosopher Aristotle aptly said, “Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies.” Those trying to write their own love messages could add a comment about how your heart beats in rhythm with their loves.

Robert Burns, the famous Scottish poet, had many romantic poems. Perhaps you can look through his poems and find one that will suit your needs. “My love is like a red, red rose” is one of his most famous poems. Add this or any of his other poems to the bottom of a card. Your Valentine will appreciate the sentiments even if they aren’t original.

Thomas Hood wrote the following poem which is simple and yet conveys so much:

I LOVE YOU
I love thee, I love thee,
‘Tis all that I can say
It is my vision in the night,
My dreaming in the day.

If you’d like to try your hand at writing a love poem for your sweetie, you can use these guidelines:

  • Read different types of poetry. You can’t write something if you don’t understand it. Try several genres to see what inspiration you can find.
  • Write down a list of things you love about your partner. These can often be written together in poetry form. “I love your eyes, your lips and face. And I love your warm embrace . . .” You get the idea.
  • Use a thesaurus or the internet to find rhymes for words you want to use. Brainstorming can also help you come up with words which rhyme.

It’s not always easy to let your loved ones know how you feel, but that shouldn’t dissuade you from trying to write romantic Valentine’s Day love messages and poems. As long as what you write is sincere, your special Valentine will love it.
