18 Sweet And Romantic Love Poems For Him

1. My Perfect Husband

“Thanks for being my best friend
When I needed just an ear
Thanks for supporting me
When I just needed someone near
Thanks for being my advocate
When I needed someone’s belief
Thanks for being my healing balm
When I needed some relief
Thanks for being my everything
When I need just a little more
As a husband you deserve
A perfect ten on ten score.”

– Anonymous

2. From My Heart

A million stars up in the sky.
One shines brighter – I can’t deny.
A love so precious, a love so true,
a love that comes from me to you.
The angels sing when you are near.
Within your arms, I have nothing to fear.
You always know just what to say.
Just talking to you makes my day.
I love you, honey, with all of my heart.
Together forever and never to part.

– Elizabeth Smith

3. Sonnet of Love

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 everyday’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candlelight.
Elizabeth Browning

4. Wish I Could Find The Words

“Just wish I could find the words
That would make the meaning clear
About why I just love you so
And why I want you here
Why I need you here with me
So I can shower you with love
Why it is so clear to see
You are an angel from above
An angel sent from heavens high
To bring the lord’s own prayer
That you and I on blue skies fly
Share a love that is true and rare
A love that is so truly pure
That it completely fills my heart
A love that will forever endure
And that we shall never part
A love that will last you see
Until the end of time
A love which joins us – you and me
And forever will our hearts entwine.”

– Nigel P Stringfellow

5. Life Without You

“I’m sad and feeling blue
Doing nothing but thinking of you.
I hope you can feel it too
‘Cause I’m getting crazy; I don’t know what to do.

You’re there and I’m here.
Year of not seeing each other,
The eagerness to see you goes stronger.
How long will I wait, another year or longer?
My heart cries when I see you on the screen,
For I cannot touch you or kiss you for real.

This really isn’t easy for me,
But I cannot do anything so I just cry and pray.
Praying every night you’ll come back again.
Hope God will hear my deep calling,
If that will happen I will surely be happy.
No more tears and heartaches, just hugs and kisses.”

– Rinalene

6. To My Loving And Caring Husband

“If ever two were one, then surely we.
If ever man were loved by wife, then thee.
If ever wife was happy in a man,
Compare with me, ye women, if you can.
I prize thy love more than whole mines of gold,
Or all the riches that the East doth hold.
My love is such that rivers cannot quench,
Nor ought but love from thee give recompense.
Thy love is such I can no way repay;
The heavens reward thee manifold, I pray.
Then while we live, in love let’s so persevere,
That when we live no more, we may live ever.”

– Anne Bradstreet

7. The Meaning Of Love

” To love is to share life together,
to build special plans just for two,
to work side by side,
and then smile with pride,
as one by one, dreams all come true.
To love is to help and encourage
with smiles and sincere words of praise,
to take time to share,
to listen and care
in tender, affectionate ways.
To love is to have someone special,
one on whom you can always depend
to be there through the years,
sharing laughter and tears,
as a partner, a lover, a friend.
To love is to make special memories
of moments you love to recall,
of all the good things
that sharing life brings.
Love is the greatest of all.
I’ve learned the full meaning
of sharing and caring
and having my dreams all come true;
I’ve learned the full meaning
of being in love
by being and loving with you. ”

– Krina Shah

8. My Covering

You are my protector and cover, love poem for him

“I know what it feels like to wait on a breakthrough,
Meanwhile trusting God to see us through!
I know what it feels like to hold your hand
On bended knees, seeking the Father’s plan.
I know what it feels like to cry all night long
Just to be reminded by you in the morning light
That Jesus is our new song…
I know what it feels like to almost lose hope,
But having you in my life strengthens my rope…
Thank you for being a compassionate guide,
Assisting in my footsteps
And believing in what God has provided.
You are more than a friend, husband, or lover.
You are my protector, my provider.
You are my cover!
Because of you,
I know what it feels like to be loved”.

– Wanda J. Mobley

9. An Ol’ Cowboy

“His boots may be dusty
From sitting by the door,
And his saddle a little weathered;
It doesn’t get oiled anymore.
His hat has become misshapen
From hanging on the wall,
And his lariat is a little stiff;
It isn’t used much at all.
His hair has started graying
From “experience” he has said,
And his body a little sorer;
It’s the COWBOY life he’s led.
His words may seem harsh
From the truth that he speaks,
And his morals a little different;
It’s a promise to himself that he keeps.
His heart a bit more cautious
From the hurt it felt and more.
And his love, if you should earn it. . .
It’s a little better than any love
You have known before.”

– Lovie M Haskell

10. Love’s Coming

“She had looked for his coming as warriors come,
With the clash of arms and the bugle’s call;
But he came instead with a stealthy tread,
Which she did not hear at all.
She had thought how his warrior would blaze in the sun,
As he rode like a prince to claim his bride:
In the sweet dim light of the falling night
She found him at her side.
She had dreamed about how the gaze of his strange, bold eye
Would wake her heart to a sudden glow:
She found in his face the familiar grace
Of a friend, she used to know.
She had dreamed how his coming would stir her soul,
As the ocean is stirred by the wild storm’s strife:
He brought her the balm of a heavenly calm,
And a peace which crowned her life.”

– Ella Wheeler Cox

11. Someday My Love

“Remember the walks
Remember the talks
The promises we made
The choices we came to make
To have you in my life was no mistake
For every tear that falls
Be it as it may
I know I love you and we will be together forever someday”

– Kimberly

An easy starting point to write a love poem is to jot down important incidents like your first meeting or emotional occasions in the relationship, or even think about what you are feeling about the person at that very moment.

12. Happy And Proud

“Thoughts of you surround me.
You’re the beating of my heart.
The love you give defines me.
My life is no longer dark.
You give your hand so sweetly.
I am lost if you’re away.
You have me so completely.
I cherish you night and day.
Without your breath, I cannot live.
I need your lips on mine.
Nothing at all I wouldn’t give.
I’ll take nothing and be fine.
For in your arms I’m always home,
So happy and so proud.
Never a day you’ll feel alone,
And I’ll yell it oh so loud…
I LOVE YOU WITH ALL MY HEART!”

– Scott Sabatini

13. I Love You Husband

“Every time you say I love you,
My heartbeat goes insane.
The sensation of your love for me
Is almost like a pain.

And the sparkle in your eyes
Every time we speak,
It sends shivers down my spine
And makes my body weak.

Every time you say I love you,
Your smile lights up my face,
Makes me melt all over,
While my heart begins to race.

And when you kiss me softly,
My lips quiver at the touch.
That you love me very much.
I am overwhelmed with joy

My whole being surrenders
With everything you do,
And all because those precious words
You say …. are …. I LOVE YOU.”

– Shelagh Bullman

14. Satisfied

“When you make love to me, everything seems right,
You seem to take my hand and guide me through the night.
You reach to take my fears and throw them to the past,
You penetrate my soul in hopes to make it last.
And you standing with me, never shall I be afraid.
My inner core you’ve touched, my sanity you’ve saved.
But if you feel you can’t be strong in all my times of need,
You’ve given me strength, somehow I’ll take the lead.
Never understanding, accepting what time may give
We’ll learn and grow together,
Cherishing each moment that we live.”

– Dina Johnson

15. I Will Wait For You Forever

“The days are cold, the nights are long,
but my love for you stays strong.
I hold you in my heart
and have you on my mind.
I’ll wait for you; however long,
my love for you is blind.
You are my lover and my friend,
you are my everything.
I shall remain here waiting,
even if for eternity.”

– Diana J. Briones

16. Greatness Of Your Character

I admire your undoubted love
Image: Shutterstock

“As I think on the things that I so admire about you,
I admire:
Your undoubted love for God,
Your ability to learn,
How quickly you can change a negative attribute in yourself into a positive,
The right choices you make consistently and swiftly
Without a fleeting thought of the wrong choices as options,
How you are so tenderly moved by the suffering of another,
How your sympathy changes into empathy and you become the fulfiller,
The great teacher and the coach that you have been to myself and to others,
The humility that quietly adorns you when attacked unjustly
Or when you have been misunderstood,
How you show the way by example to our children and grandchildren
With patience, kindness, and love,
And most of all, your unwavering love for me,
And so much more.”

– Lena Mary Fuller

17. Words Are Not Enough

“No words could ever tell you,
No action could express
The way I feel about you.
With you, my life is blessed.

You’re the light in my tunnel.
You are my pot of gold.
You are the strength that gets me through
When despair has taken hold.

You’re my once in a lifetime.
You make my life complete.
You are my blue ribbon
In the shadow of defeat.

There’s nothing I could ever say
And nothing I could do
To let you know just how much
Love is in my heart for you.”

– Denese H. Boyett

18. I Carry Your Heart with Me (I Carry It In My Heart)

“i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart) i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing, my darling)

i fear
no fate(for you are my fate, my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world, my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

I carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)”

– E. E. Cummings

19. Love’s Philosophy

The fountains mingle with the river
And the rivers with the ocean,
The winds of heaven mix forever
With a sweet emotion;

Nothing in the world is single;
All things by a law divine
In one spirit meet and mingle.
Why not I with thine?—

See the mountains kiss high heaven
And the waves clasp one another;
No sister-flower would be forgiven
If it disdained its brother;

And the sunlight clasps the earth
And the moonbeams kiss the sea:
What is all this sweet work worth
If thou kiss not me?

– Percy Bysshe Shelley

20. The Good-Morrow

I wonder, by my troth, what thou and I
Did, till we loved? Were we not weaned till then?
But sucked on country pleasures, childishly?
Or snorted we in the Seven Sleepers’ den?
’Twas so; but this, all pleasures fancies be.

If ever any beauty I did see,
Which I desired, and got, ’twas but a dream of thee.
And now good-morrow to our waking souls,
Which watch not one another out of fear;
For love, all love of other sights controls,

And makes one little room an everywhere.
Let sea-discoverers to new worlds have gone,
Let maps to other, worlds on worlds have shown,
Let us possess one world, each hath one, and is one.
My face in thine eye, thine in mine appears,

And true plain hearts do in the faces rest;
Where can we find two better hemispheres,
Without sharp north, without declining west?
Whatever dies, was not mixed equally;
If our two loves be one, or, thou and I
Love so alike, that none do slacken, none can die.

– John Donne

Edith Lazenby loves to write poems and stories. She shares her experience of writing a poem for her husband. She writes, “This poem holds what my heart feels. He is my best friend. I knew by the time I was ready for marriage that friendship has to be the foundation upon which a lasting relationship is built (i).”

Poetry can express a lot in a limited number of words. Thus, it is the best option when you want to share your deep and strong feelings with your partner and words keep failing you. You can choose any poem from the above list that resonates best with you, and we are sure your partner will appreciate this gesture. If you are in a long-distance marriage or have been away for more than a few days, you can let your husband know how much you wish to be with them through these verses. The poems also celebrate the love between a couple and will make him blush from the first line itself.

Watch the following video for a heartfelt poem dedicated to husbands. This touching poetic tribute delves into the emotions and sentiments expressed through words to convey the love and affection you feel for your significant other.
