Has a wonderful person recently landed in your life?
Or maybe they’ve been around for decades.
Whichever the case, you’re smitten and eager to convey your emotions to this person.
So why not send them a cute thinking of you poem?
Not a poet?
That’s where we come in.
We’ve collected some unique thinking of you poems for her, him, or they.
Use as is (and give credit to the poet) or tweak them to your situation.
How to Use a Thinking of You Poem
There’s an art to dating, and knowing when to emote and when to hold back is all part of the craft.
Which raises the question: When should you send a thinking-of-you poem?
- After Several Weeks of Dating: The first date went well. You’re excited. But don’t mess it up by coming on too strong, too soon.
- Randomly (If in Long-Term Relationship): Long-term relationships have a way of breeding complacency. Put a spark back into the partnership with a sweet, random, thinking-of-you poem.
- Before an Important Event: Does your partner have a big meeting or presentation? Encourage them by sending a thoughtful poem on the morning of the event.
- When You’re Apart: People get lonely and nervous when their partner is away. Let your honey know you’re thinking of them with a short poem.
How can you send thinking-of-you poems?
- In a card (snail mail it to add an old-fashion touch)
- In an email
- In a text
- Leave a voicemail
- Send a singing telegram
13 Thinking of You Poems To Share With Your Love
We’ve discussed what to do and what not to do.
1. When I Think of You by Catherine Pulsifer
When I think of you,
I recall the laughter we shared
The troubles we aired
The joy and the tears
The expressions of fear.
The good times we’ve had
The times we’ve been mad.
But through it all
I smile when I recall
The talks of life we have had
The times when we’ve been sad
But you are always there
Even when I acted like a bear
So when I think of you
I know I can count on you that’s true
I count my blessings that you, I can depend
You will always be a good true friend.
2. A Stranger by Lang Leav
There is a love I reminisce,
Like a seed
I’ve never sown.
Or lips that im yet to kiss,
not met my own.
Hands that wrap around my wrists,
that feel like home.
I wonder how it is I miss,
I’ve never known.
3. A Memory by Lola Ridge
The crackle of the palm trees
Over the mooned white roofs of the town…
The shining town…
And the tender fumbling of the surf
On the sulphur-yellow beaches
As we sat…a little apart…in the close-pressing night.
The moon hung above us like a golden mango,
And the moist air clung to our faces,
Warm and fragrant as the open mouth of a child
And we watched the out-flung sea
Rolling to the purple edge of the world,
Yet ever back upon itself…
And mooned white memory
Of a tropic sea…
How softly it comes up
Like an ungathered lily.
4. You’re Always on My Mind by Alyssa Long
I find that you’re on my mind,
more often than any other thought.
Sometimes I bring you there purposely,
to console me, or warm me, or just to make my day a little brighter.
So often, you surprise me though,
and find your own way into my thoughts.
There are times,
when I awaken and realize what a tender part of my dreams you have been.
And all through the day,
when a peaceful moment seems to come my way,
and my imagination is free to run,
it takes me running into your arms,
and allows me to linger there,
knowing there’s nothing I’d rather do.
I know that my thoughts are only reflecting the loving hopes of my heart,
because whenever they wander,
they always take me to you.
5. Longing by Sara Teasdale
I am not sorry for my soul
That it must go unsatisfied,
For it can live a thousand times,
Eternity is deep and wide.
I am not sorry for my soul,
But oh, my body that must go
Back to a little drift of dust
Without the joy it longed to know.
6. I Miss You by Helen J. Radford
You live in my heart.
Thoughts of you consume my mind.
I miss all you are.
7. Can’t Stop Thinking About You by Tyler Knott Gregson
I wish I
that every thought
is about you.
8. I Want You Beside Me by Shiloh
From your glistening lips
I’ll never all away
From the gift of us
I want you beside me
For the rest of this
9. Just Thinking of You by James Douglas Morrison
Watching whitecaps roll into the ocean of blue.
With a smile on my face just thinking of you.
The sweet memories, the tender moments we’ve shared.
They caress me like the soft breeze that fills the air.
The loving feeling I get when I hold your hand.
The summer night when we walked in the sand.
Waves splashing on the rocks along the shoreline.
Brings tears to my eyes knowing that your mine.
Sharing a love like ours my happy heart sighs.
Watching the violet clouds carelessly floating by.
10. Every Time When I Think of You by lil Island Gal
Every time I think of you, my body shakes
Every time I see you, my knees grow weak and
Every time I’m with you, I don’t want the time to end.
Every time I look into your eyes, I wish I was there
Every time I see you smile, my heart melts and
Every night before I go to sleep, I pray we don’t end.
I’ve tried somehow to say:
You’re the sun that lights up my sky
The wind that keeps me cool on a hot summer day
And sweet incense that keeps me on a natural high
I want so much to tell you:
That without you with me each day, my day isn’t complete
That since day one, I’ve always wanted to be with you
That no matter what’s going on in my life
You’re the reason there’s a smile on my face
And that loving you seems to be all I need to know.
But every time I want to
The words just won’t come out
To you, it may sound mushy or too cute
You may not believe it, so it’s better I keep my mouth closed
Then to try to tell you exactly what’s on my mind
Yet I wish to tell you that I’m beginning to
Love you more with each passing of the day
And that I want to be with you
Come whatever may.

13. Remembering by Taliah
You were on my mind when I woke up this morning.
Remembering your smile
I guess the next time I’ll see your face
Might take a little while.

The way they always felt warm
And having you right by my side
I completely felt no harm.
I was remembering your voice
It makes my heart skip a beat
but without you my love
my body feels so weak.
I was remembering our times
all the good and bad
the funny times you cheered me up
and especially the sad.

how they always meet mine
remembering all the things you do
to make my life worthwhile.

when it will be just us two
I guess I’m just missing you
more than I usually do.
