Romantic poem sure has a way of adding colours to your big day. One of the qualities of poetry is that it is a unique language that combines and uses words to convey meaning and communicate ideas, feelings, sounds, gestures, signs, and symbols. It is a wisdom language because it relates to the experiences and observations of human life and the universe around us
Poetry is beautiful because it’s created with the most attentive instances of our minds, it’s appealing because most of the poems are meant to be read by others. Though it’s not the first instinct to write something that is appealing, it’s an inadvertent implication of writing a poem altogether. If you are having a religious ceremony make sure you inform your Pastor or the minister in charge to be sure if some love poems are allowed. You may be limited to scripture only. So make sure you ask before your wedding day.
Down below, you will see poems that are all about love and looking to the future with your partner.
”Hand In Hand” – Beanball
Let’s go hand in hand into a lovely land.
Side by side to a world that shines so bright.
Let’s go to a spot where Yahweh is leading us.
A place where is peace and harmony
A place where is like the Garden of Eden
I love how your love assumes me like the sunlight approaching the horizon
as it breaks the darkness and bestows dawn upon the land.
I love how you love me and care for me
I love you now and forever
“To Be One With Each Other” – George Eliot
What greater thing is there for two human souls
than to feel that they are joined together to strengthen
each other in all labor, to minister to each other in all sorrow,
to share with each other in all gladness,
to be one with each other in the
silent unspoken memories?
“A White Rose” – John Boyle O’Reilly
The red rose whispers of passion,
And the white rose breathes of love;
O, the red rose is a falcon,
And the white rose is a dove.
But I send you a cream-white rosebud
With a flush on its petal tips;
For the love that is purest and sweetest
Has a kiss of desire on the lips
“Love Is A Great Thing” – Thomas à Kempis
Love is a great thing, yea, a great and thorough good. By itself it makes that is heavy light; and it bears evenly all that is uneven.
It carries a burden which is no burden; it will not be kept back by anything low and mean; it desires to be free from all worldly affections, and not to be entangled by any outward prosperity, or by any adversity subdued.
Love feels no burden, thinks nothing of trouble, attempts what is above its strength, pleads no excuse of impossibility. It is therefore able to undertake all things, and it completes many things, and warrants them to take effect, where he who does not love would faint and lie down.
Though weary, it is not tired; though pressed it is not straitened; though alarmed, it is not confounded; but as a living flame it forces itself upwards and securely passes through all.
Love is active and sincere, courageous, patient, faithful, prudent and manly.
“I Love You” – Carl Sandberg (also called “The Mother’s Day Poem”)
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” – Roy Croft
I love you
Not only for who you are
But for what I am when I am with you.
I love you
Not only for what you have made of yourself
But for what you are making of me.
I love you for the part of me that you bring out.
I love you for putting your hand into my heart
And passing over all the foolish, weak things that you can’t help.
Dimly seeing there and drawing out, into the light all the beautiful belongings
That no one else had looked quite far enough to find.
You have done it without a touch, without a word, without a sign.
