Short Wedding Anniversary Poems

These poems are succinct and go well with your anniversary card. Among them, Shakespeare’s two poems are my most favorite. Old, but never obsolete and always have a place in the collection of anniversary love poems.

Romantic Lines From Shakespeare’s Poems

I love thee, I love but thee
With a love that shall not die
’Till the sun grows cold
And the stars grow old.

by William Shakespeare


Doubt thou the stars are fire;
Doubt that the sun doth move;
Doubt truth to be a liar;
But never doubt I love.

by William Shakespeare

Contemporary Poems For Anniversary Card

I asked God for a flower,
he gave me a bouquet
I asked God for a minute,
he gave me a day
I asked God for true love,
he gave me that too
I asked for an angel and
he gave me you.



I love my eyes
When you look into them.
I love my name
When you whisper it
And love my heart
When you love it.
I love my life,
Because you are the part of it.



Not all roses are red,
Only some violets are blue.
And when winter comes to say hello,
They die, I know this to be true.
Instead my love for you is an oak,
Tall and strong year round.
Broad limbs reaching to the sky,
Roots planted firmly in the ground.

Our Love

L is for ‘laughter’ we had along the way.
O is for ‘optimism’ you gave me every day.
V is for ‘value’ of being my best friend.
E is for ‘eternity,’ a love that has no end.

by John P. Read


Words of Love

If I had the words to describe my feelings for you
I would be the happiest man in the universe
But words seem to fail me time and time again
So I have to settle for the words in this verse

Your touch, your smile, your presence and soul
Mesmerize and entangle me completely
If I had but one ambition, one utter goal
It would be to stay by your side for eternity.

anniversary poem for her


I Love You

I love the way you nag and glare
It makes me know how much you care
I love the way you walk, just like a man
Not really sexy but it sure is fun.

I love you just the way you are
No pretentions even from afar
I love you because you love me too
Just like the way I do.


I love you,
in ways
you’ve never been
for reasons you’ve never been
for longer than you think you
and with more
than you will ever know existed

by Tyler Knott Gregson

Long Wedding Anniversary Poems

Here are some longer anniversary poems for you. These happy and romantic poems, together with your wishes, will bring strong feelings to the recipients.

To make room for these poems and not to stuff your anniversary card, we suggest that you use a separate page for the poem and another for your wishes.

For Her

Your lips so soft and red,
the thought of kissing you is stuck in my head.
Your beauty so bright and warm,
shining through the darkest storm.
Your eyes sparkle like stars in the night sky.
When I stare into them I feel like I am soaring high.
My love for you is pure and true.
I never stop thinking of you.
The sound of your voice saying, “I love you,” makes my heart pound,
because I know my one and only I’ve truly found.
I promise to love you for every moment of forever,
and when everything else crumbles, I will never.
I am your armor to protect you from harm,
like you are to me, a lucky charm.
For you are my heart, my soul.
Baby, you are my whole world.

by Jamie Emm


With You By My Side

This beautiful and memorable day,
has been carved into my mind.
A precious moment in time,
when our lives became defined.

Let’s rejoice and celebrate,
our love and our bond.
I cherish what we have,
with my heart I respond.

This journey of life is so sweet,
with you by my side.
My smile radiates,
with each passing stride.

Whether one or a thousand,
journey’s we take.
With you by my side,
I feel alive and awake.

My soul is filled with bliss,
due to the love that we share.
I promise you my dear,
I will always be there.

To the stars and the heavens,
our anniversary I shall proclaim.
My love for you burns like the sun,
with an infinite flame.

anniversary card with a love poem


So Many Pleasures

When I was young, I couldn’t think
What it would be like to be older.
How could I know it would bring such joy
Just to cuddle my head on your shoulder.

So many things bring happiness now,
Like a rub on the back or a smile,
And my feelings for you are stronger today
Than they were when you walked down the aisle.

When I was young, my fondest wish
Was a marriage that could be this good.
Where we’d work through pain to laugh again
As loving partners should.

As the days drift by we’re settling in,
To a life that’s rich and rewarding.
Just sharing with you is a dream come true;
You’re a pleasure well worth hoarding!

I’m happy with you; to me you just shine,
And I’m blessed and thankful that you are mine.

by Joanna Fuchs (and Karl)

I renew my promise

This anniversary

We both will grow old

Together gracefully

I will hold your hand

As you hold mine

Everything in our life

Will always be very fine

Even in tough times

I will be with you

Let’s celebrate this special day

With these wows taken anew

by wishesmessages


You are like a rose

In my life’s garden

Without your fragrance

Life wouldn’t be fun

You are the sunrise

In my life’s horizon

Your undying love

Feels warm like the sun

You are like the moon

That lights up my nights

Your eternal beauty

Is like a radiant light

You are not just a woman

You are an angel

My darling to me you are

So priceless and special

Happy anniversary
