Happy Anniversary Poems and Wishes

An anniversary is a time of reflection of the event that was experienced. It is healthy and natural to remember an event on the anniversary of the day it occurred. Moments of joy should be celebrated with joy. The same goes for sad occasions. These should not be ignored. Anniversaries of weddings and engagements are times to renew the love and affection that was felt during those times. They are an opportunity to bring the marriage to a higher level. Anniversaries are a function of the cyclical nature of the universe. The constellations become aligned in the way they were during that special occasion.

  3. 2. Happy 1st Anniversary, My Sweet Love!

    I wrote this for my fiancé as our 1-year-together-as-a-couple gift. We get married in 3 days! With all the wedding planning, he and I decided not to go spending money on the "One Year" that we could be putting into the ceremony and reception, but I still wanted to make it special, so deep within my heart - I searched - and seeing him, I found the inspiration and motivation to write this beautiful poem.

    Happy Anniversary, my sweet love!
    For you, I thank the Lord above.
    You've given me hope, inspiration, and truth.
    Because of you, I feel never-ending youth.

  6. 4. Some Flowers For You

    • By Chris
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2011

    My young son, with 15 red roses, and my daughter, carrying this poem (rolled up on parchment paper), walked into my wife's work on our 15 year anniversary and presented it to her. She cried...

    A rose for every year,
    many smiles for every tear
    Way more of the first than ever of the latter
    What's deep in our hearts is all that really matters

  8. 6. First Anniversary

    • By Wendy Mcquaid
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2016

    I wrote this poem to my husband on our first anniversary. Our money was tight 39 years ago, and I could not afford a gift. I watched him as he napped on the couch and started to think of the past year and the years to come. I got a paper and pen and started writing what was going through my head. When I was done, I rolled the paper up and tied a red ribbon around it. When he woke, I gave it him. He read it and hugged me. The poem is framed and hangs in our house to this day.

    Although it's been but one year
    Since we took our marriage vows,
    In my heart you are always dear
    And for you there's always bows.

  10. 8. The Diamond Couple

    • By Rebecca Robinson
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 2016

    My grandparents have always been a huge part of my life. For their diamond wedding anniversary I wanted to give them something that would show them how much they mean to me. I wanted to give them something from the heart, something truly sentimental that they can treasure forever. So I wrote them this poem. I hope it expresses my love toward my grandparents, and I hope it is able to make other people feel the happiness, unity, and warmth that comes from the love within families.

    My granny and grandpa
    Are two very special people to me.
    This poem is my way of saying
    Thank you for always making me happy.

  12. 10. Wedding Anniversary

    • By Ralph T. Crosley
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2016

    Frances and I celebrated our 65 anniversary on October 5, 2008, with about 200 of our friends and relatives. The following Monday, Frances was diagnosed with colon cancer which had spread to her liver. On December 18, 2008, I rushed her back to the hospital. They did everything possible to save her, but she died at 8:15 a.m. on December 19, 2008. I am so thankful for the loving poem she wrote to me.

    Do you know how important you are to my life?
    How you have brought me great joy as a mother and wife?

    Do you know your expressions of kindness and praise

    On October 11, 2015, we celebrated our 17th marriage anniversary. My wife always demands a gift from me on this occasion. This year I gifted her this poem, and she was very happy to read my feelings.

    We got married today seventeen years before
    My love for you at that time was a little immature
    As we are moving forward in this busy life
    I am very proud to say that you are my wife

  16. 14. To My Wife

    • By Jerry Boettcher
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 2016

    I have a sweet wife and 4 kids. My wife does a good job in helping to tame the parts of me that would be a little anti-social and over-working. I wrote this short poem on our 25th anniversary just to tell her again that I appreciate her and would marry her again if I had the chance. I took this poem and wrote it in a blank card and gave it to her on our anniversary, in lieu of a Hallmark card.

    On this day we said our vows.
    Now is a time to say just how
    Much I appreciate you.

  18. 16. I Know My Life

    I have heard it said by many people, including those close to me, that my wife and I married young and lost all of the fun things of our youth. We married when we were 16 for my wife and 17 for me, which now has been over 30 years ago. Well, to my wife Pammy, I hope you know I really have never looked back in regret because having you is so much more than I ever imagined it would be. With my wife, we have created a lifetime of wonderful adventures and memories, those who say we were too young have no idea what a true sharing young love could be. Commitment, friendship, love, devotion, sharing, caring, laughing, and at times crying. I would not change a thing.

    My girlfriend is now my wife
    It happened 30 years ago and changed my life

    I have heard people complain as they age of what they may have missed
