romantic love poems

I would like to share with you a little romantic love poem I discovered some years ago.

I sort of like it, because in my opinion it differs a little from other poems. You literally feel the electrifying intensity. It moves you to depths you never knew about.

Of course, beauty is always in the eye of the beholder they say, but this poem conveys a certain truth we all know, or hope, exists – and we all long to have it in our lives.

It gives us a short glance how life should be – sweet and passionate.

To me, personally, the following poem is the most romantic love poem of all.

Wait a minute, you might think.

Why does Eddie Corbano show me such a poem, beautiful or not? Hey, this wouldn't be a LovesAGame article if there was nothing to learn from it, right?

Now, after reading the poem below, I want you to ask yourself the following:

“Have I ever felt in such a way? Do I have a fundamental understanding of what this poem is about? What is my concept of feeling love?”

Furthermore, if you are in a fulfilling relationship, I want you to let this little piece of art elevate you to a new level of passion and sensibility. Read this poem together with your partner, and together find the truth in it for you.

If your partner is currently not by your side, send them this poem by letter or email, along with some personal words from you.

If you are suffering from a recent divorce or break-up, let it remind you that it still exists. It's still out there waiting for you to find it.

It's certainly not dead.

So, obviously, I'm sharing this with you for three reasons:

  • to delight you with some insightful piece of art
  • to elevate you and your partner to a new level of understanding of true love
  • to remind you that the love in which you believed once, still exists

So, no more talking, here it is the most romantic of all short, love poems, enjoy:

Looking For Your Face

From the beginning of my life
I have been looking for your face
but today I have seen it

Today I have seen
the charm, the beauty,
the unfathomable grace
of the face
that I was looking for

Today I have found you
and those who laughed
and scorned me yesterday
are sorry that they were not looking
as I did

I am bewildered by the magnificence
of your beauty
and wish to see you
with a hundred eyes

My heart has burned with passion
and has searched forever
for this wondrous beauty
that I now behold

I am ashamed
to call this love human
and afraid of God
to call it divine

Your fragrant breath
like the morning breeze
has come to the stillness of the garden
You have breathed new life into me
I have become your sunshine
and also your shadow

My soul is screaming in ecstasy
Every fiber of my being
is in love with you

Your effulgence
has lit a fire in my heart
for me
the earth and sky

My arrow of love
has arrived at the target
I am in the house of mercy
and my heart
is a place of prayer

Beautiful, isn't it?

This is Rumis “Looking for your face”. There is also a remarkable recitation along with some awesome music (look out for track 14): A Gift Of Love. Check it out.

Your friend,
