Short Love Poems
If You But Knew
If you but knew
How all my days seemed filled with dreams of you,
How sometimes in the silent night
Your eyes thrill through me with their tender light,
How oft I hear your voice when others speak,
How you 'mid other forms I seek-
Oh, love more real than though such dreams were true
If you but knew.
Could you but guess
How you alone make all my happiness,
How I am more than willing for your sake
To stand alone, give all and nothing take,
Nor chafe to think you bound while I am free,
Quite free, till death, to love you silently,
Could you but guess.
Could you but learn
How when you doubt my truth I sadly yearn
To tell you all, to stand for one brief space
Unfettered, soul to soul, as face to face,
To crown you king, my king, till life shall end,
My lover and likewise my truest friend,
Would you love me, dearest, as fondly in return?
Could you but learn?
Do You Love Me
Poet: Julie Hebert, (c) 2011
How do I know if you love me,
Will you just come out and say so?
I wish I could see them, but the signs aren't gleaming,
And it's hard to know if you're my beau.
I really need to find out,
If the love that I feel is shared,
So here I go now, to confront my love,
And see if we'll always be paired.
