Short sweet love poems are brief poems that you can use to express to someone how much you love him or her. Short sweet love poems can be used for birthdays, Valentine's Day or for any occasion where you want to express a loving sentiment in a creative way.
Everyone has a different definition of a short, sweet love poem. Some short love poems can be as short as a few lines. For example, here is a love Haiku from Healing Love Notes:
Dawn gifts a soft touch
An invitation to love
~ Love Haiku by Mia Rose ~
Haikus are some of the shortest poems available, since they are only three lines long.
Greeting cards are another great source of short, sweet love poems. While most people don't think of greeting cards as being poetic, there often are poems written in these cards. Since the cards are meant to be read quickly, these poems are often going to be short and sweet. However, if you find the right one, it can actually be quite meaningful.
Short Love Poems provides examples of some of the most famous love poems from famous poets. Some of these poems are quite a bit longer than haikus, but they can still be considered short sweet love poems.
For example, here is a poem printed on Short Love Poems that was written by renowned poet Robert Burns:
O my Luve's like a red, red rose
That's newly sprung in June;
O my Luve's like the melodie
That's sweetly played in tune.
As fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
So deep in luve am I;
And I will luve thee still, my dear,
Till a' the seas gang dry:
Till a' the seas gang dry, my dear,
And the rocks melt wi' the sun;
I will luve thee still, my dear,
While the sands o' life shall run.
And fare thee weel, my only Luve,
And fare thee weel awhile!
And I will come again, my Luve,
Tho' it ware ten thousand mile.

Our love will stay and thrive and grow.
By Joanna Fuchs
