You can’t lose with these.
Sometimes, when you break up with someone, the love you have for them still stays strong — so you do what you can to try to win them back.
Wooing an old lover may seem like a difficult task. What can you possibly do to steal her heart again?
You could try to make a romantic statement by running after her at a train station or airport (like in the movies!). But unless she’s traveling soon, you won’t get many opportunities for that.
You could throw pebbles at her bedroom window to get her to talk to you. But that’s something that’s only romantic in movies and sort of creepy in real life.
When it comes to sweeping someone off their feet, sometimes it’s the small things that count.
Love poems are a great way to let someone know how you feel about them. They are short, simple, and to-the-point.
But don’t worry, you don’t have to be Shakespeare to win her over. You can send her poems from one of our favorite poets, from Lang Leav to Robert Browning.
So, continue reading below for some short, sweet love poems that will be sure to win her over.
1. Tell her what she is to you.
You are the finest, loveliest, tenderest, and most beautiful person i have ever known — and even that is an understatement.” — F. Scott Fitzgerald
2. Tell her how much you miss her.
“To know that I miss you so much when you leave; to know that I need you like the air that I breathe. To know that I want you with a passion so blind, is to know that I love you — with no doubt it my mind.” — Lang Leav
3. Tell her that you can’t go on without her.
“I never fully realized what it meant to hurt (to truly hurt) until I wanted you to such a great extent, only to have no other choice but to convince myself that I didn’t.”
4. Tell her you still think of her.
“I still search for you in crowds, in empty fields and soaring clouds. In city lights and passing cars, on winding roads and wishing stars. I wonder where you could be now, for years I’ve not said your name out loud. And long since I called you mine — time has passed for you and I. But I have learnt to live without, I do not mind — I still love you anyhow.” — Lang Leav
5. Tell her how much you love her.
“I love you past the moon and miss you beyond the stars.” — JM Storm
6. Tell her you’ll always want her.
“I can’t even hold your hand, but I love you with a love that no one can understand.”
7. Tell her how long you’ve missed her.
“I missed you for too long, in too many ways, that it became just another part of me; engraved deeper into my heart with the passing of time. I would wake up, stretch, breathe, and miss you. They told me to let it go, to let you go, and I would say: You cannot simply will your heart to stop beating, that no matter how long you hold your breath for, you cannot hold it forever, and I could only stop missing you if I stopped being myself entirely.”
8. Tell her you are trying.
“I tried to stop loving you so I built walls around my heart and found other names to whisper in the night but you carved yourself into my veins even if you meant to or not and sometimes I wonder if you remember the way we looked at each other or maybe you forgot.”
9. Tell her what you’d do to get her back.
“With you in my life I felt like I could conquer anything. It was as if I was on top of the world and even the stars themselves were just within my grasp. But without you … even getting through the day is hard.” — Ranata Suzuki
10. Tell her that you choose her.
“In an endless garden of flowers I will always pick you.” — AJ Lawless
11. Tell her you have always known you wanted her.
“You are the poem I never knew how to write and this life is the story I have always wanted to tell.” — Tyler Knott Gregson
12. Tell her why you love her so much.
“I love you, not only for what 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.” — Roy Croft
13. Tell her you’re sorry.
“Forgive me if I stumble and fall for I know not how to love too well I am clumsy and my words do not form as I wish so let me kiss you instead and let my lips paint for you all the pictures that my clumsy heart cannot.” — Atticus
14. Tell her everything that makes her HER.
“Because I could watch you for a single minute and find a thousand things that I love about you.”
15. Tell her she makes you weak in the knees.
“I would love to say that you make me weak in the knees, but to be quite upfront and completely truthful, you make my body forget it has knees at all.” — Tyler Knott Gregson
16. Tell her that she’s all you’ve ever wanted.
“Darling you are all I ever wanted love to be.”
17. Tell her what you want every morning.
“Coffee is all well and good but I would rather have your lips kiss me awake every morning.”
18. Tell her your confession.
“This is my confession. As dark as I am, I will always find enough light to adore you to pieces, with all my pieces.” — Johnny Nguyen
19. Tell her you dream of her.
“Meet me at midnight in the forest of my dreams. We’ll make a fire and count the stars that shimmer above the trees.” — Christy Ann Martine
20. Tell her you want to grow old together.
“Grow old along with me. The best is yet to be, the last of life, for which the first was made.” — Robert Browning
