How to Write a Love Poem Without Actually Writing a Love Poem
Ever wanted to write your lady or man a beautiful love poem, but didn't know where to start? Turns out, you don't have to be Shakespeare to send a heartfelt note. In fact, you can even go as far as outsourcing it! Yes, we know that outsourcing a love poem makes it far less heartfelt, but think of it as a place to start. You can edit and customize once you have the foundation built.
How did we come across this magical realization? Here's the backstory:
Last week, I was telling my very own husband about a new outsourcing service called Exec. Exec is a company that will do anything for you for $25/hour. And most often, they are on your task immediately.
My husband didn't believe they could do "anything" so he wanted to throw them a challenge. He asked them to write a super personalized love poem for his wife, using nothing but the information publicly available on the web.
That time came at Apple, we both might not have known,
Our fates were written and our lives were sewn.
We took unbelievable trips that I will cherish forever,
Experiences I could not live with, not now nor never.
The day came when I was ready, somewhat,
So I got some help from a few coconuts.
You were the most beautiful bride with backdrop mountains abreast,
Our lives are just starting so there is no time to rest.
Your success of Brit of which you shall hath,
Will be complimented by mine, of a slightly different Path.
Sharing a life with you has made my happiness quadruple,
Especially our love, and our love for the little bernedoodle.
I'm so grateful to have you in my life,
I look forward to the decades to come of calling you my lovely wife.
Pretty amazing, right? They nailed it all! His home state, the fact that we met at Apple, the proposal, which was written in the sand with coconuts, where we're working now, our wedding in Jackson Hole…they even got Pixel, our bernedoodle, in there!
