Love Poems for different women. Lily, Emma, Rose and Dorothea

Love poems. Today, a tribute to women by Adreyo Sen. Love Poems for different women. Lily, Emma, Rose and Dorothea… all of them are wonderful!


Chorus Line by Peter Griffin


You gave me a flower

and then you had nothing.


Just a smile on your face.


They laughed at you.

It broke my heart.

I went away.


My garden is full of your smiles.

Now I can hold you in my arms

when you cry.



You are so little.

You fit on my palm.

And if only you smiled at me,

I would feel so warm.


But you don’t smile, my little one.

You are stern and oh so pale.

And if I so much as try to kiss you,

you scream and go off the rails.


And so, I must hold onto you when you sleep,

watch those tiny, closed eyes and dream

of a time when you’ll laugh and my lonely heart

and this lonely world will catch fire and gleam.



Do you think of me, my little one?

I often think of you.

On nights when the stars are clear

and the impatient trains are coming through.


You were so impatient, my little one,

so eager to grow.

Always trying to catch the fireflies

and falling off your toes.


You can’t grow now, my little one.

And I am so glad, you know.

Because I know in some wonderful world,

you are only as tall as the smallest rose.


And perhaps some forlorn woman,

grown beautiful with care,

will take you in her arms and sing.

And you’ll be content to sit and stare.



It’s cold, these winter nights.

And the hills are covered in beautiful lights.

I love these little lights.

They remind me of your eyes.


There was never sadness in your eyes.

Except in the end, when you could only cry.

I could not bear it and,

I left your bedside.

You left without saying goodbye,


And the hills have their beautiful lights.

But I cannot see them.

My eyes were never mine.
