I had been searching for love my whole life. It took the opening up of the world via technology for me to find my soulmate. Once I laid eyes on her, at the arrivals gate, I knew I was never going to let her go. The following is a collection of poems I wrote to my angel, from our first meeting up until our wedd

This is a collection of over 100 deeply personal love poems that Ken (Mr. N) wrote to Joelle (Mrs. N) in the years before they were married. Some take up a whole page, and some are only a couple lines, but all of them convey the inner feelings and utmost thoughts of the author towards his soon-to-be bride.
My favorite poems in this book were "What You Mean to Me", "When Souls Unite", "Dreams", "Life's Simple Pleasures", "The Light of Love", "Thirty-One Days", "Curveballs", and "On My Wedding Day

I was worried about reading poetry in e-book form. Would the formatting work? Would it be too easy to flip through pages and not reflect upon the work? But the story behind Poetry of Love: The Engagement Year intrigued me. Don’t we all want a man to fall in love with us and write us a poem every day? There’s a short introduction with the background, but I would have liked (or perhaps I should save loved) more information. How did they initially meet? How did the second meeting come about? I’m le ...more

What a touching book of love. The poetry is heartfelt and full of love. Each one shows how much he was looking forward to his future with her. The poems are in freestyle and are direct from the heart. A must read for fans of love. It will make you jealous that your husband to be didn't write all these wonderful words about you and your future.

Let me start with a disclaimer - English is not my native language and while I read exclusively in English for years, it was my first venture into poetry. At the same time, I read a lot of poetry in high school and in college, well outside the school requirements. I enjoyed it tremendously.

I wanted to delve into contemporary poetry and ended up with "Poetry of love". I was tremendously disappointed. The only thing coming to my mind reading the poems was how simple the language is, how straight

I’m far from a pro when it comes to poetry, but it would be impossible not to be touched by emotion when reading the pages in this book.

The author takes us on a journey of discovery, from the first blush of passion to the fulfillment of an everlasting love.

I enjoyed the almost journalistic quality of the passages written as a roadmap for loves sometimes bumpy trail.

The emotion is raw, real, and unforgettable.

I give Poetry of Love: The Engagement Year 5 lovely kisses

I received this book as a gift
