The Most Beautiful Love Poem In The World

romantic love poems

Photo by alteringlife

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,
Eddie Corbano

    This poem is one of the most wonderful poems i’ve ever read.

    I just want u to know,
    That our love for each other has helped us to grow
    We’ve been through some tough times but we’ve mad it through
    The only one i trusted was you
    You helped me through’ve chased away fears
    You stayed by myside when the whole world turned away
    You helped me see joy when the skies were all grey
    I’m not sure im always the best to you
    I know im not perfect, but this much is true
    Whether we sink or swim doesnt matter at all
    Just know that I’ll be there for you whenever you call
    And if there is heaven then i know you’ll be there
    That if u die first then you’ll hear every prayer,
    And soon i’ll join you,but just know until then
    That I’ll be missing you each day until I see you again…

      In Love,we must know how to Give to Forgive,to be humble and be understanding person,cause love won’t work by our self only it will work accompany by our love one’s. know how to share problems and failure in lives so each one of you have the idea how to threat each other. and foremost be compassionate honest………

      I Love You With All My Heart

  2. Andika Dhesta November 1, 2009 at 9:57 am #

    This poem I write to someone special that I never met in real
    and love her so much…


    I love you like water
    Dew in the morning
    Clouds in the daylight
    Fog at night

    I love you like water
    Down from the sky as rain
    Flows in the valley as a river
    Gathered into lakes and ocean

    I love you like water
    Drip drop by drop but through the rocks
    Seeped from the root to the tip of the leaf
    Evaporated up to the sky to preach the life

    I love you
    Like anything
    I thought
    I saw
    I heard
    I felt

    I love you
    Like never before
    So deep
    So high
    So big
    So extensive

    I love you
    Like mad

    I love you
    Like artist

    I love you
    In the words I can’t found
    In the real I can’t described
    In my heart I can’t shown

    • tejendra pun November 19, 2009 at 11:30 am #

      i like this poem very much because i touch my heart directly

      • Andika Dhesta November 20, 2009 at 9:20 am #

        thanks for Tejendra Pun, that poem wrote to someone but the meaning is for everyone that felt love

        it’s soo romantic …….. actually i too hv written this type of poem…very few lines r only unmatched bt rest evrythng is same bt i didn’t uploaded it……bt really it’s fantastic….

    • iyan September 24, 2015 at 2:38 pm #

      so nice so good..i just get touched with it..i hope u will meet her in real..

    • SteveOZ January 8, 2016 at 11:12 pm #

      I love you like water? I need water and would even say I like it, but I wouldn’t go as far as comparing my deep, unending, relentlessly romantic, unequalled and undivided love for my fiancé to any kind of “love” for water. Lol sorry, don’t mean to criticize, but everyone needs a critic. Let’s not even mention the comment from Angela where she probably made up her poem and claims it to be “one of the most wonderful poems [she’s] ever read”. I mean come on.

      • Leo May 4, 2016 at 3:35 pm #

        Well his words resonate with individuals different. We’re not all gonna get the same emotional overdrive as the next person. So yeah Angela most likely read some words that really hit home, when you’ve barely scratched the surface of how deep this poem is.

    A Sigh For Me ( A poem for Madhuri Dixit)

    Twenty years I had stood by your yard
    In sun and rain, in snow and hail,
    My heart full of love, hands full of flowers
    And eyes expecting one day you would see;

    Twenty summers had passed, and twenty winters
    And twenty autumns and twenty springs,
    Many a time you came and looked out
    To where I stood from your balcony;

    And never did I know from your empty eyes
    Whether you had noticed me or not
    Or cared to think someone’s waiting outside
    Before time from all hopes made me free.

    If ever, on some lonely rainy day
    You happen to stand by your window
    Listening to the patters of rains on the leaves of deodar –
    Look will you into your heart if there’s a sigh for me?

    • romeobob May 14, 2010 at 12:27 pm #

      you come across as a stalker

    • David gull September 15, 2010 at 2:50 pm #

      charm me asleep and melt me so
      wid dy delicious numba
      dat being ravished hence i go
      away in easy slumbers
      ease my sick head
      & make me my bed
      thou power dat canst sever
      from me dis ill
      & quickly still
      thought thou not kill
      my fever my fever my fever

    • SteveOZ January 8, 2016 at 11:16 pm #

      In my opinion, this is real poetry. Although I will admit to having no clue what a deodar is. Thanks for the good read.

    Ask Sky (A poem for Madhuri Dixit)

    If ever the weep of silence
    That echoes inside my heart
    You have heard,
    If ever you have known
    The loneliness that accompanies me,

    If ever the color of pain
    That tinges my tears crystal
    You have seen,
    If ever you have felt
    How emptiness fills my heart –

    Ask sky, O girl,
    Ask sky what it feels to love!

    A Woman In My Heart (A Poem for Madhuri Dixit)

    Somewhere deep inside my heart
    There lives a woman,

    Deep inside my heart
    She’s been there a thousand years!
    I’ve never met this mysterious woman
    Nor had a chance to speak to her,
    Only her sacred smile I feel inside me
    And her loving voice touching my soul.

    Somewhere deep inside my heart
    There’s this beautiful woman to stay forever.

    • Angelica June 22, 2015 at 2:37 pm #

      That was a good poem and i will be more if you get to know her more because beneath under that smile there is something else. so don’t be move by physical look but what is in side the person’s heart

    • Troy February 9, 2016 at 8:37 pm #

    Madhuri Dixit: from Idol to Goddess

    Mad I ran to meet my idol,
    But came back – leaving my heart
    By her door – and with my soul
    Built a temple to worship her!

    Here is a poem I wrote recently which can be found on DeviantArt under the name Adianoeta

    I wait for you

    in the abysmal depths

    of an ocean of insanity

    drowning in desire

    of lascivious joys

    fire blue eyes

    in constant orbit of you

    absorbing every intricate detail

    Perhaps your hair

    and the way it seems to shimmer

    like Carbanado diamonds


    your soft silky touch

    tracing waves of silence

    across a troubled soul

    How your caramel lips

    make me forget

    as your snake tongue

    pursues me endlessly

    capturing my awareness

    You know me,

    Its more than just physical flame

    that burns inside

    it is smoldering embers of memories

    that warms my soul

    The mellifluous sound of your laughter

    as my heart dances to its clarity

    just your simple esoteric smile

    and I its eager jester

    to battle its evanesence

    The substance of simple conversation

    as we lay looking at each other

    lost in verbal felicity

    as day replaces night

    My love,

    My everything lies behind

    your cinnamon eyes

    without you I surely would wilt

    into nothingness

    my world would only know chaos

    in your absence

    My brain may be sick with need

    a sound mind unhinged and frantic

    but this is my love

    unrestrained to obsession

    My sweet moon

    dance with me

    I will not step on your silver feet

    do not walk away

    stay and drug me with lunacy

    for I am an addict of your creation

    I need you

    I ache for you

    I love you

    Come slowly, EdenLips unused to thee.Bashful, sip thy jasmines,As the fainting bee,Reaching late his flower,Round her chamber hums,Counts his nectars -alights,And is lost in balms!

    when i see your face i wish i could post you
    forever in my heart as you told me so
    your love that you give is so wonderful

    love you in each an every second
    love you in each an every minnutes
    love you in each an every hour
    love you in each an every day

    i’ll not stop love you
    i’ll not stop thinking about you
    i’ll not stop missing you
    i’ll not stop give you the love that i have in my heart

    you such a romentic person
    you spend most of your time whit me
    you respect me
    you care about me

    you such a wonderful person in my life
    you’ll always be in my heart
    couse you love me

    “Our story is quite a shame,
    Bout two star-crossed lovers and their pain,
    And how’d they never love each other again.

    But I need you,
    To see through
    The cracks in the window,
    That blinded us both.
    Hear the sirens,
    See through the black smoke,
    That our animosity is what bound us most.

    And I never meant to hurt you,
    Never meant to do you harm.
    And I never meant to hurt you,
    But, I can’t change the fact you’re gone.

    Don’t know what’s next,
    And I don’t want to know, no, not yet.
    Still having trouble trying to forget,
    Trying not to settle down in regret.

    And I never meant to hurt you,
    Never meant to do you harm.
    And I never meant to hurt you,
    But, I can’t change the fact you’re gone.

    And if this is the end of us,
    Burn the bridges down,
    Cast fire to the whole town.
    Let everything rust,
    Let the past turn into dust.
    Then let’s sit back and watch the sparks fly,
    Then let’s say our last goodbyes.

    Alone I stand,
    Sparks flying in the air.
    I see you standing there,
    But, you put your weapon down,
    And said, “It’s only fair.”

    This was the lyrics I made to Coldplay-Trouble (instrumental). Beautiful song.

    this the poem that i wrote a year ago when im fell in love with the man i used to called mine
    i hope you would like this poem


    For that certain smile
    That cheers me when I’m blue
    I Love you
    For your tender kiss
    That warms me through and through
    I Love you
    For your kindness
    Your understanding touch
    Your eyes that somehow
    Seem to say I Love you so much
    I Love you
    For your faith in me
    Your sweet and patient way
    For the many thoughtful things
    You do so often without praise
    I Love you
    For all these things and million others too
    But most of all for what you are

      Superbly Written… rhyming…the real pleasure is in reading a rhyming poem….you nailed it….

  39. Jovana March 27, 2014 at 12:32 am #

    I don’t see how everyone has been taken by this poem? I find it quite eccentric and it goes to show that men have always been blinded by beauty. Or wait, he isn’t even writing about the real beauty of a woman but an actual physical looks. He’s ought to write about her face but he ends up writing about himself and the way he is touched by something so superficial. All in all it is not sincere and I am not impressed.

    • roxane January 2, 2015 at 11:29 pm #

      Oh, he was indeed blinded by beauty, considering as being divine. Rumi is one of the best poets of humanity, possessed by a genius of the heart, he was a Sufi, a mystic, and enlightened being.Is fascinating to see how modern he is, so actual, so fresh…thinking that he was alive in 13 century!
      To him, the beauty of a face is the beauty of soul, of God, and what in fact says here, is that only love and beauty can make someone burn, die, and revive, change. “Only from the heart we can reach the sky” He is a master of poetry, and his poems has awaken millions of hearts. But poems can touch only the hearts ready to be awaken, sensitive hearts on the brink of burning in the fire of passion, which is the fire of the soul ( not of the sex with all due respect)

    In the end my love for you shall remain a mistery I could never find the words to express how I really feel about you its all to confusing to sum up in words if only you could see yourself through my eyes and love you through my heart it will only take you a few seconds to realize that you mean the world to me……

    Rumi, my most beloved poet! Thank you for posting this poem Andrea. Years ago when i first read his poems, my mind has blown away, my heart broken, by the wondrous feelings, then when all came together again, I was at once somebody else. Indeed, sublime arts, poetry, beauty, can change and heal minds and souls, and your post is appropriate.

    Good One ….

    this poem goes to all my exs and future love of my life.

    it is sad, about my past
    I wasn’t ready for loves
    all I started I expected it to last
    and have a wedding with bright white doves

    flying above like summer snow
    but less did I know
    it take more than a sword
    to go to battle of love

    they say learning never ends
    well am still learning how to take my steps without falling
    commitment makes me shiver
    I fear breaking a heart and being heat broken

    unfortunately I have faced both
    I have scars to be mended and to mend
    only by true love
    coz any more marks on my heart will tear it apart

    am done with the old games
    I want to face my fate
    yes I said it and I mean it with all my heart……

    this is a long poem I wrote on my 16th birthday last year 2014

  49. Victor June 27, 2015 at 11:22 am #

    I like your poem Lotuence

    We all experience love differently some people think its a mericle and some say its karma but one time i experienced love as a amazing feeling i felt like i was in cloud nine but then he left me i was scattered into a milion pieces and filled with hate my heart filed with darkness
    And pain but forever in shame
