5 Romantic Christmas Poems

Christmas Love
At Christmastime I think of all the gifts
That bring me great delight and sweet surprise,
But nothing in this world can bring such joy
As you do, when you look into my eyes.

And when I contemplate what Christmas means,
The caring and the giving–I confess,
You’ve given me the things I want the most:
Your love, your touch, your kiss, your warm caress.
The Christmas tree reminds me, with its lights
That just the thought of you sets me aglow;
You light me up from deep within my heart,
Because I cherish you, and love you so.

With you it’s Christmas all the time, sweetheart.
I treasure every hour and every minute.
Your love is all I’ll ever want because,
My life is so fulfilling with you in it.

On The Eve Of Christmas

On the eve of Christmas
surely I’ll have you near
I’ll wrap my arms around you
and hold my darling dear

I’ll kiss those lips of wine
as you stand ‘neath the mistletoe
My heart will follow you
everywhere you go.

Christmas Angels

Reach for an angel high on a star;
She sends you Christmas wherever you are,
Bringing you laughter and faith so supreme,
Touching your heart with a beautiful dream.

Peace and goodwill in each loving home,
Beauty and magic so surely your own.
Sweet Christmas angels – moments of love,
Part of the wonder God sends from above.

Santa and children – this wonderful day,
Hope for tomorrow in words that we pray,
Tree reaching tall – such a beautiful sight,
Music we treasure is heard on the night.

Bless you, my dear ones, this so holy time;
May God’s richest blessings forever be thine,
Glad tidings I send you across every mile
Along with a faith to make each day worthwhile.

God’s Christmas angels, precious and dear,
For a Merry Christmas,lasting through a New Year.

Be My Christmas Gift

If you sat beneath the Christmas tree,
You’d sure add to the decor,
But even if you were gift wrapped,
I couldn’t love you more.

You have to know that if I had you,
I’d have the gift I’d most adore,
Better than any expensive gift
I could purchase in a store.

If you hug me tight, you wonderful thing,
And be my Christmas gift,
You’ll brighten my days forevermore
And give my heart a lift.

I Really Want

I really want to tell you
Just how precious you are to me,
My every thought of you
Is as loving as can be

My heart is totally filled with things
That words alone can’t say,
This comes especially for you
With love on Christmas Day.

5 Real, Romantic Christmas Stories

6 Dec
Last Christmas my husband proposed to me in New York. He has some friends who live up there so we were staying with them and a lot of our other friends were there too. He put a tiny Christmas box as a ornament on the tree with a tag adressed to me. He pretended that he had never seen and said that it was addressed to me. He gave it to me and when I looked up he was standing there and he asked me to marry him. Of course I said yes but he took a step further and went out on the balcony shouting “She said yes!!” and “We’re getting married!”
************************************
As a college student, I was teaching a Sunday school class of third graders. One of the eight-year-olds, Kirsten, regularly had prayer requests regarding her awful, mean, grouchy big sister. We regularly prayed that her sister would be nicer. Meanwhile, a number of people kept suggesting that I date Kirsten’s sister. Well, I’d heard enough to know to steer clear! At Christmas, Willa – Kirsten’s sister – approached me at church and handed me a Christmas card. I mumbled something noncommittal. About a year later, a friend I worked with was pitching to me how I should take her out. I told him I’d heard about her from her little sister. He laughed  and told me that Kirsten had three sisters and Willa was definitely not the mean one. So – a year late – I told Willa,’Thanks for the Christmas card.’ She retorted: ‘Well, don’t expect another one!’ We’ve now been married 28 years.
************************************
This is how I was proposed to to… He took me to the park on Christmas night and gave me a huge box. I opened the first box and inside there were packing peanuts and another box. I opened the next box and inside was the same. I opened the next, same thing. I opened the last box and inside was a small teddy bear that sang Silent Night. I didn’t notice the ring box that was attached to him until a minute later. It had the words “marry me?” on the back of its fake sheet of music. It was so sweet and I was totally surprised!
************************************
I had my first date on Christmas Eve! 🙂 It was so sweet and special!
He came over during the week to give my Christmas present, and it was an invitation to my favourite restaurant! And then, since my birthday is on Christmas Day, he said he had a birthday present for me too. I asked what it was and he said he was taking me to the restaurant! Which was very sweet, as I’ve been looking forward to our first date for ages!
Well during the meal, flowers were delivered to the restaurant for me and he gave me the most beautiful necklace! I was so overwhelmed! It was lovely! 🙂

I live in Michigan and my fiance lives in New York. My children, 19 and 16, and I went to spend Christmas with him. Leon works at Shubert Theater in NYC and he bought us tickets to see the show playing there, Spamalot, for Christmas Eve. He told us that he had to do some work during the show and wouldn’t be joining us in the audience. During intermission Leon came to my seat and told me that one of the security guards would come get us after the show so we could go backstage and meet the cast. When the curtain went down, the security guard showed up and took us backstage. He told us to go up the steps (on the stage) and as we walked up, I saw most of the cast milling about, but mostly looking at us. I have to say I felt a little weird, and I looked around for my boyfriend, and there he was. . . dressed like one of King Arthur’s Knights. He was standing there smiling at me, and I looked back at the security guard and said, “I’m not going out there.” I thought the curtain was going to go up and he was going to start singing and have me part of some wacky sideshow! Instead the guard nudged me and told me to get out there. I did, and Leon recited the most beautiful poem, he wrote it himself. I was in a semi-shocked-stage-fright-kind of stupor. I heard the poem, but didn’t REALLY hear it. I did grasp those magic words; “Will you be my wife,For all of our life. Please say yes, I pray for nothing less.” And of course I said yes!! My Knight in Shining Armor, isn’t that what every girl dreams of?
