9 Poetic Ways to Tell Someone You Love Them ...

By Holly

When you love someone, it's difficult to find the words to express how you feel. You want them to know that they mean more to you than anything else, but whenever you try to tell them, your tongue doesn't cooperate with your heart. If you've been having trouble expressing your feelings, there are a lot of ways to say what you need to say. Here are a few poetic ways to express that you love someone:

1 You Set My Heart on Fire

This sounds like a line from a sappy romance movie, but when you're in love, you start talking like a Nicholas Sparks character. It just happens, so don't fight it. Be as mushy as you want, because your boyfriend will do the same.

2 I Live for Our Love

How sweet does this sound? It's a great way to let your partner know how much you care. It's bound to make him melt. If it doesn't, then challenge him to say something sweeter. He'll never be able to do so and you can bask in victory.

3 You're the Best Thing That Ever Happened to Me

Only saw this if it's the truth. If spending a lazy day with your partner on the couch is better than going out partying or meeting your favorite celebrity, then he deserves to know how much you cherish your time together. Don't be shy. Let him know he's the best part of your life.

4 I Want a Lifetime with You

Make sure you two are serious before you say this one. It lets him know that you want to spend the rest of your lives together. It's a huge deal, so save it for a special occasion.

5 You Are My Everything

This one is pretty clear. It will let your boyfriend know that he's the most important thing in your life. He comes before anyone and anything else, and you want him to know that.

6 You Complete Me

When you find the love of your life, you'll finally feel whole. Sure, your life was great without him, but now you can't imagine being apart from him. He just makes you want to be the best person you could be.

7 You Are My Reason for Living

There are plenty of other reasons for living, besides falling in love. Of course, once you find the right person, it's hard to think of something more special than your partner. They just become your entire world.

8 You Hold the Key to My Heart

This one sounds cliche, but it's a sweet thing to say. If you really want to impress your mate, buy him a keychain with a key on it. That way, you can turn your metaphor into a reality.

9 You Make My World a Better Place

This is one of the sweetest things you can tell someone. It's nice to know that you're valued. It's even nicer to know that you've made someone's life a whole lot better than it's ever been before. If seeing your boyfriend is the highlight of your day, let him know it.

When you love someone, it doesn't really matter what you say. All that matters is how you both feel inside. What's the most romantic way someone has ever told you that they loved you?
