Do You Love Me Poems
Enjoy these short love poems, all asking the question, do you love me. When we are in love we often wonder if the other person is in love with us. Many times we want to ask the question, but we hesitate as we want the person to just tell us that they love us.
As Oscar Hammerstein II, once said, "Do you love me because I'm beautiful, or am I beautiful because you love me?" Many people have penned the question in many different ways. For example, Alain de Botton put it this way, "Do you love me enough that I may be weak with you? Everyone loves strength, but do you love me for my weakness? That is the real test." Or one to make you smile, said by Shane Koyczan, "A question like “do you love me?” was an itch our doctors told us not to scratch."
We hope these love poems give you thoughts on asking or not asking the question, do you love me?

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, ©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.
I Will Not Give Thee All My Heart
Poet: Grace H. Conkling
I will not give thee all my heart
For that I need a place apart
To dream my dreams in, and I know
Few sheltered ways for dreams to go:
But when I shut the door upon
Some secret wonder - still, withdrawn -
Why dost thou love me even more,
And hold me closer than before?
When I of Love demand the least,
Thou biddest him to fire and feast:
When I am hungry and would eat.
There be no bread, though crusts were sweet
If I with manna may be fed.
Shall I go all uncomforted?
Nay! Howsoever dear thou art,
I will not give thee all my heart.
