You’ve found the One! Great.

Express the fullest and highest within you by showering your loved one with all the joy that is in your heart.

You can love in words, and more effectively, in actions.

For now, you can start with verbal expressions of what’s within your heart and let the love flow from there.

Let your life be a testament of your love. Beautiful.

Quotes to Express “I Love You With All My Heart”

Sometimes it’s easier to let somebody else say it. But only say what is true for you and what resonates in your heart.

‘My Love For You’ Quotes Vowing Love For Him or Her

You are everything I could ever need and more,
More than I deserve or would dare wish for.
You are my baby, my angel, my dream girl.
I’m thankful every day that you are my whole world.

My life is yours, my hopes and desires too.
Until my dying day, my heart is reserved just for you.

I cannot wait to share my day with you and yours with me.
I am at peace with you in my life.

Your wishes and desires are mine to grant. My heart is all yours to have and to hold. I love you completely.

Classic Poems of True Love

“How Do I Love Thee,” by Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806-1861)

For those who are blind to reality and who follow their heart’s greater wisdom (or greater folly), this poem by Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806-1861) captures the feeling of complete immersion in and devotion to the One.

How Do I Love Thee?

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of every day’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints. I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

Sonnet 116,” by William Shakespeare (1564-1616)

William Shakespeare’s sonnet about the constancy of Love, “Let Me Not to the Marriage of True Minds” (Sonnet 116):

Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments. Love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove.
O no! it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wand’ring bark,
Whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken.
Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle’s compass come;
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom.
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

“i carry your heart with me (i carry it in),” by e. e. cummings (1894–1962)

i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)

                                                      i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

“That I did always love,” by Emily Dickinson (1830–1886)

That I did always love
I bring thee Proof
That till I loved
I never lived—Enough—

That I shall love alway—
I argue theeThat love is life—
And life hath Immortality—

This—dost thou doubt—Sweet—
Then have I
Nothing to show
But Calvary—

Gestures of a Heartfelt Soulmate Connection

For those who have found love later in life:

“Grow old along with me; the best is yet to be.” – Robert Browning

“At Last,” by Elizabeth Akers Allen

At last, when all the summer shine
That warmed life’s early hours is past,
Your loving fingers seek for mine
And hold them close – at last – at last!
Not oft the robin comes to build
Its nest upon the leafless bough
By autumn robbed, by winter chilled,
But you, dear heart, you love me now.

Though there are shadows on my brow
And furrows on my cheek, in truth,
The marks where Time’s remorseless plough
Broke up the blooming sward of Youth,
Though fled is every girlish grace
Might win or hold a lover’s vow,
Despite my sad and faded face,
And darkened heart, you love me now!

I count no more my wasted tears;
They left no echo of their fall;
I mourn no more my lonesome years;
This blessed hour atones for all.
I fear not all that Time or Fate
May bring to burden heart or brow,
Strong in the love that came so late,
Our souls shall keep it always now!
