Annabel Lee - Edgar Allan Poe
It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
By the name of ANNABEL LEE;
And this maiden she lived with no other thought
Than to love and be loved by me.
I was a child and she was a child,
In this kingdom by the sea;
But we loved with a love that was more than love-
I and my Annabel Lee;
With a love that the winged seraphs of heaven
Coveted her and me.
And this was the reason that, long ago,
In this kingdom by the sea,
A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling
My beautiful Annabel Lee;
So that her highborn kinsman came
And bore her away from me,
To shut her up in a sepulchre
In this kingdom by the sea.
The angels, not half so happy in heaven,
Went envying her and me-
Yes!- that was the reason (as all men know,
In this kingdom by the sea)
That the wind came out of the cloud by night,
Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee.
But our love it was stronger by far than the love
Of those who were older than we-
Of many far wiser than we-
And neither the angels in heaven above,
Nor the demons down under the sea,
Can ever dissever my soul from the soul
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee.
For the moon never beams without bringing me dreams
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And the stars never rise but I feel the bright eyes
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side
Of my darling- my darling- my life and my bride,
In the sepulchre there by the sea,
In her tomb by the sounding sea.
This is actually one of my favorite poems. It’s too sweet for me. I just can feel every single ounce of love..
But we loved with a love that was more than love is my favorite line.
I remember that I even wrote 2 poems inspired by this line..
I wanna feed the person I’d be spending the rest of my life with, with lots of love poems or even short notes everyday just to make him smile every single day. Maybe a love poem every anniversay? Or a very short love note like I love you with a love that is more than love every morning/week?
Tons of cute surprises just to keep the fire burning even if our hair starts to change its color..
I just wanna be really sweet and loving.
I want my next love to reach “forever”.
Natabunan lang ng tapang, inuman at tawanan.
Malulunod na lang sa mga salitang hindi kayang bitawan.
Hindi ko lubusang maunawaan bakit ‘di mabura ng tuluyan.
Nawa’y isang araw humantong rin sa katapusan.
I wonder who’s going to always be there,
And I wonder who’s gonna love me forever.
I wonder who’s going to kiss me everyday,
And I wonder who’s the person who’ll never surrender.
And I wonder when will our eyes meet.
Oh I always wonder how he looks like.
And would he really make my heart skip a beat,
And make everything feel so perfect and right?
Every single night before I go to sleep,
I wonder when will I see his beautiful face.
Will it be tomorrow or the next week?
Oh God where is that magical place?
I’d be wondering until we finally meet
And by then I’d be the perfect girl for him.
I’d feel that spark from my head to my feet,
And then I’ll know that it’s not only a dream.

These are all true. I always dream of him. I’m a hopeless romantic. I thirst for love.
P.S. The last line of the last stanza doesn’t really rhyme with the 2nd. Been thinking of how to fix it but my mind won’t work. Will just make my next poem better. :)
I love you with a love that can survive distance,
I don’t have to see you nor be with you everyday.
This feeling I got keep me in an unexplainable state of trance
I love you, and maybe it will always stay this way.
I love you with a love that can survive the test of time,
Days, months, or years apart may not make this disappear.
What I feel will just stay here deep down inside,
This is pure, without a hint of anger nor fear.
I love you with a love that can survive without sweet words,
Without romantic gestures and romantic dates.
I guess my love for you can continue without kisses and hugs,
And maybe, just maybe, this is truly what my fate states.
I love you with a love that can survive any sadness or pain,
Still here I am loving you with all my heart.
I love you every sunshine, every sunset, every rain,
In my life you will always have a huge part.
But you don’t love me with a love that can survive all these,
Am I really the only one who gave the strongest kind of love?
Why can’t you love me with a love that can survive all these,
When I’ve truly loved you with all my body, soul, mind and heart?
(I Love You With A Love Part I)
I promise to make you laugh every single day.
Our lives won’t be boring at all.
I promise to hug and kiss you at least once a day.
We’ll be crazily in love until our hair will all fall.
I promise to be always there beside you before you sleep
and the moment you open your eyes.
I promise to always be there beside you, I’ll never leave you.
I’ll always fill your stomach with butterflies.
I promise you’ll never be alone and I promise to wipe away your tears.
We’ll face the world together, I’ll be with you to conquer your fears.
I promise to still caress your skin even though it’ll be wrinkled and dry.
I promise to love you forever, until our last breath, even after we die.
I promise to love you, everyday, always and for eternity.
Minsan sa buhay may darating,
mamahalin ka ng walang humpay.
Minsan sa buhay may aalis,
At iiwan kang sugatan, naglulumpasay.
Minsan sa buhay may magpapasaya sa iyo,
Papangitiin ka’t pakikiligin
Minsan sa buhay may mananakit naman,
Sasaktan ka’t paiiyakin.
Minsan iisang tao lamang iyan,
Minsan nama’y iba iba.
Ngunit isa lamang ang sigurado diyan
Lahat ng iyan ay ating madarama.
Minsan lang dumating yung taong mamahalin ka ng buong buo,
Tatanggapin lahat lahat ng maganda at pangit saiyo.
Kapag dumating sya wag kang magpakatanga,
Alagan mo sya at mahalin sa tuwina.
Mahal kita, at paulit-ulit kong sasabihin
Magbingibingihan ka man o hindi ako pansinin
Puso ko’y nandirito patuloy kang iibigin
Mahal kita, anong hindi mo kayang intindihin?
Mahal kita, at paulit ulit kong ipadarama
Sa aking mga sulat at paggawa ng mga tula
Lahat ng ito sana ay iyong nababasa
Dahil lahat ito’y totoo maniwala ka sana.
Mahal kita, at hindi ko alam kung hanggang kailan
Baliktarin man ang mundo at umabot man ako sa kung saan
Araw-araw ay nais kitang makita at hagkan
Mahal kita, sana ako’y mahalin mo rin naman ng lubusan.
Your funny hair and your bright eyes
Instantly makes me flash a beam.
The way you look and the way you smile
Makes me feel like I’m in a dream.
You and your perfect face
Is there a way I can ever forget?
And yes, I know I can never replace
And there is nothing that I regret.
I adore you because you’re beautiful inside and out
Your eyes, your cute nose, your lips and even your hair.
Even apart my love for you is true, there’s not a doubt
How I wish and pray that you’ll always be here.
