  1. 1
    At some point in our lives, we have all written a love poem
    Nothing expresses and adoration more than something handmade: something personal that someone has spent the time and thought to produce themselves. Anyone can buy a nice card or present, but it takes a real sense of affection, honesty and love to write one's feelings and share them with the people we care about. Love poems can also help us to share things that we find it hard to say to people. Writing down our desires and giving them to another can allow us the opportunity to truly reveal ourselves and communicate with someone honestly. Here is an example of a love poem:

    I loved you first
    but afterwards your love-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;' 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
    This poem talks about love in general. If you are writing a love poem for somebody, then you will want to make it more personal. Here are some tips to do that:

    Be personal
    Describe exactly what it is you love about the person. Talk about both physical aspects and character, for example, the expression of concentration on their face when they read; the way the corners of their lips flow when they smile. Make unique references to them. Include memories: Everyone loves to be reminded of the first meeting or first kiss. Including these memories helps to establish a marking point between a life before and after meeting that person and can be used to show the differences between these periods.

    Use metaphors and similes to convey your feelings in a creative and unique way
    make references to experiences that the reader can relate to. Avoid cliches: While it is impossible to say 'I love you' in a thousand different ways, try to avoid using tired, common or general phrases, such as "Your eyes are like the stars".

    Make the design attractive
    This means decorating the card and envelope. You must remember that the poem is just 1 part of the gift. Try to present all elements, in harmony, to ensure the maximum effect. Also, consider how to present the poem. Perhaps hiding the card in something, have it hanging from a cord waiting to be discovered, or perhaps you can even perform it when the recipient least expects it.
