Original Romantic Verses for Christmas

Romantic Christmas poems can be all different styles. You'll find short Christmas poems, long verses, rhymed and not rhymed, passionate and serious, or even tinged with humor. The important thing is that any poem you choose matches your personality and what's in your heart. Add one to a Christmas card, jot it on a gift tag, or maybe frame one and give it as a present.

Meet Me Under the Mistletoe

By Kelly Roper

Meet me under the mistletoe,
And we'll share a tender kiss.

All I need are your lips, my love
To complete my holiday bliss.

Meet me under the mistletoe,
I promise it will be divine,
When I take you in my arms,
And press your lips with mine.

Meet me under the mistletoe
With lips that glisten like dew,
And I'll reveal what's in my heart
With the kiss that I give to you.

All I Want for Christmas

By Tracey Kelley

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
For Christmas this year,
All I want is you!

A Perfect Christmas Eve

By Kelly Roper

You and I
Cuddled up together
In the dark
In front of a lighted tree
Sharing our love for each other.

That's my idea of a perfect Christmas Eve.

A Present Just for You

By Tracey Kelley

The packages are wrapped,
The tree is a delight,
Meet me under the mistletoe,
And you'll get a big present tonight!

The First Gift Is the Best

By Tracey Kelley

On our first Christmas morning,
I thought you were the most beautiful sight,
In your fuzzy yellow slippers, hair askew,
With pink cheeks, like Santa's little helper.

You gave me socks, like my mom would,
And a very cool titanium driver,
But the greatest gift of all, I know this for sure,
Is simply being my loving wife every day.

Merry Christmas, sweetheart, this year and always.

Our First Christmas

By Kelly Roper

My heart beats with anticipation
At the thought of you and me
Spending our first Christmas together
Hanging ornaments on the tree.

A crackling fire and a bottle of wine
Complete my romantic vision.
And my fondest wish for you and me
Is to make this our yearly tradition.

Quick Tip

You can text a Christmas poem about love to your sweetie during the holiday season too. It can be such a fun surprise to have your phone buzz and look down and see that it's a romantic poem.

Quick Tip

No matter which Christmas poem you choose to express your feelings, it's always nice to add a personal touch. Write a line with something specific you love about your special someone and jot that down under the poem. Use their name or a special nickname you have for them, too.
