3. Robert Burns

Till a' the seas gang dry, my dear,

And the rocks melt wi' the sun;

And I will luve thee still, my dear,

While the sands o' life shall run.

4. William Shakespeare

Doubt thou the stars are fire,

Doubt that the sun doth move.

Doubt truth to be a liar,

But never doubt I love.

5. Pablo Neruda

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where,

I love you directly without problems or pride:

I love you like this because I don’t know any other way to love,

except in this form in which I am not nor are you,

so close that your hand upon my chest is mine,

so close that your eyes close with my dreams.

6. Ogden Nash

As a shipwrecked sailor hates the sea,

Or a juggler hates a shove,

As a hostess detests unexpected guests,

That's how much you I love.

7. Ella Wheeler Wilcox

I love your lips when they’re wet with wine

And red with a wild desire;

I love your eyes when the lovelight lies

Lit with a passionate fire.

I love your arms when the warm white flesh

Touches mine in a fond embrace;

I love your hair when the strands enmesh

Your kisses against my face

8. Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Life has taught us that love does not consist in gazing at each other,

but in looking outward in the same direction.

9. John Donne

I wonder, by my troth, what thou and I

Did, till we loved

10. Lord Byron

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
