One to the first and obvious elements for your poem is for it to follow some sort of rhyme. This makes it easier to read and will also make it sound better. Rhyming can help turn your poem into a soft dance of words that lead to the persons heart.

Aim to make your point in as fewer words as possible. On your first draft you can just write as you normally would do. Then after you have that first draft, you can go back and try to shrink what you have said into as fewer words as possible.

Comparing your thoughts, or feelings or the positive qualities your partner possesses to something else that’s beautiful can really help to get your point across too. You will find plenty of inspiration if you look to nature. Sunsets, sky, the sea, there really is plenty to draw upon.

Most romantic relationships have overcome hardships, obstacles and bumps in the roads.

If it wasn’t you may have called it a day and gone your separate ways. You can play with this as part of the testament of the love you both have for each other.
