With the world in bloom and the sun beginning to warm the breeze, it’s easy to feel as though you were in love. As easy as the emotion may be to feel, sometimes it’s difficult to put such strong feelings to words that seem to properly encompass the way we see and feel about our loved ones.

1. Take inspiration from the world around you- Nature is often used in metaphors for nearly as long as we have records of writing- and no wonder! With how much nature surrounds us it is easy to find inspiration from the blush of rose petals to the sturdiness of pine trees.

“She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes;

-Lord Byron, She Walks in Beauty

2. Speak it from the heart- at the end of the day this is a form of personal letter to your loved one. It can be as personal and sincere or goofy and intimate as you need it to be so long that it is perfectly the two of you.

“The greatest happiness of life is the conviction that we are loved; loved for ourselves, or rather, loved in spite of ourselves.”

-Victor Hugo

3. It’s okay to be abstract- emotions are funny things and sometimes the way they make us feel doesn’t always make sense to everyone- but that never means you should never try. Famous poet e.e. cummings was notorious for his unique take on the limits of poetry and pushed the boundaries of what was considered ‘proper formatting’. At the end of the day, it's all about the meaning of the words.

“Trust your heart
if the seas catch fire,
live by love
though the stars walk backward.”

-E.E. Cummings, Dive For Dreams

4. Love comes in many forms- Love poems do not always have to be for your spouse or partner. Although often overlooked, love for friends or family members is just as important and should be celebrated just as often.

“There are all kinds of love in this world
but never the same love twice.

-F. Scott Fitzgerald
