Writing a poem to a boyfriend or girlfriend is a really romantic gesture that will be sure to go down well with your partner. To get started writing your poem, I'd suggest taking some time to look at examples of different poetic styles. After that, you could try and decide on a way of delivering your message that makes it unique to the person you are writing about.

What kind of poem to write a boyfriend/girlfriend Poetry is a great way to express your feelings because it can be as rigid or as flexible as you want it to be. People often have the misconception that poetry needs to rhyme, it doesn't!
A rhyme scheme may add to the flow and tempo of your poem - but it is by no means required.
Certain types of poetry have rules that govern everything from meter and stress, through to length an d layout.
What I'd recommend is taking a few minutes to have a look at different styles of poetry to see if there's any particular style you'd like to adopt for your piece. If not, you may just want to write a freestyle poem.

Types of poems you can check out include:
  • ABC Poem
  • Blank Verse
  • Ode
  • Ballad
  • Limerick
  • Sonnet
  • Couplet poetry
  • Haiku
How to write a poem for you lover To write a poem that shows someone how much you care for them, love is going to be an important theme. The use of imagery, metaphors and similes can be used to represent love in a sweet and subtle way. Often people talk about roses, hearts, doves, etc... My advice would be to try and avoid sounding too soppy or predictable. The best kind of poetry is exciting and engaging, so try and think of things that you and your partner can relate to.
Perhaps you spent a pleasant day together somewhere... That could be your setting!
Is there a nickname you use with each other? Try and include that in your poem!
Another idea would be start each line with the letter of his or her name. For example a poem about a girl called Lucy could go something like this:

Like the time we went to Brighton Pier, Underneath a bright blue tide, Colour of the sea was clear, Your eyes were just as wild.

Poetry has always been a great way to express yourself to a loved one or friend.  I am a published poet and I will tell you how I start.

First, get a big sheet of paper and write the name of the person in the centre, we're going to brainstorm some ideas. (do you know how to mindmap?

Now begin to draw two or three lines going out of the centre of the page.  Put some separate thoughts at the end of each of these lines, maybe it's LOVER, BEST FRIEND and TOWER OF STRENGTH.  Now take each of those ideas and draw lines from them like you did from the name and write two things that you think about that person in relation to those words.  You can keep doing this until you have a map of your thoughts and feelings about that person.  That is generally how you can stimulate your ideas, the next thing to do is decide, do you want this poem to rhyme or not?  Poems don't need to and those that don't offer you more options.  However, if you want them to rhyme, avoid the trap of cheese rhymes by using or purchasing a rhyming dictionary.

A nice format is to write verses like this:


Say three things about them and one thing about yourself.  Connect these ideas to your mindmap.
An example of this could be (and I have chosen the words from above, not words I would actually use:)

You are the tower of strength that supports our love
You are the lover that I've been dreaming of
You are the best friend anyone could have
I am in love with the you in you

Good luck!
