Anniversary Poems to your Spouse

anniversary love poemOnce Upon a Time

Once upon a time
I became yours
and you became mine.
We will be together
until the end of time.


If kisses were raindrops,
I’d send you showers.
If hugs were seconds,
I’d send you hours.
If smiles were water,
I’d send you the sea.

romantic anniversary poemMine

You were you,
and I was I;
we were two
before our time.

I was yours
before I knew,
and you have always
been mine too.
-Lang Leav


Every night as
I lay on my bed,
Your thoughts begin
to fill my head.
When I fall asleep,
in my dreams
It is your pretty
face that I see.
With you, my Angel,
life feels so right.
Your smile fills my
heart with delight.
It makes me feel happy
that I am alive
to always enjoy life
by your side.

anniversary love poemsI Carry

I carry your heart with me.
I carry it in my heart.
I am never without it.
Anywhere I go you go, my dear;
and whatever is done by only me is your doing, my darling.
I fear no fate.
For you are my fate, my sweet.
I want no world.
For beautiful you are my world, my true.
And it’s you are whatever a moon has always mean
and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows.
Here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;
which grows higher than soul can hope or mind can hide.
And this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart.
I carry your heart.
I carry it in my heart.
-E.E. Cummings

Stronger Still

When I first met you all those years ago,
I fell in love so fast, I knew right then,
You were the one and only one for me;
I’d never have to look for love again.

Each anniversary finds us happier;
You are my light–my moon, my star, my sun.
You show me what real love is all about,
You fill my life with pleasure, joy and fun.

As time goes by, our love grows stronger still.
You’re the most amazing (man/woman) I ever knew.
I prize our anniversaries because
Each year I fall in love again with you.
Joanna Fuchs

The day we both walked,
down our wedding isle.
I couldn’t help,
but joyously smile.

My tears of happiness,
were so hard to suppress.
My whole life lit up,
the moment you said yes.

We’ve been through,
so much together.
We can outlast,
the harshest cold weather.

I will always love you,
and show you respect.
It’s our wedding anniversary,
Let’s spend time and connect.

My smile is peaceful and calm,
while I look straight ahead.
As long as we have each other,
our hearts shall be fed.

Thank you for loving me,
with your heart and soul.
When we are together,
I feel completely whole.

In No Hurry

There is still a long way that we have to go,
but I want to take it nice and slow
so I can savor each and every moment
that I get to spend with you.
I’m hoping that you cherish such lovely memories too
Let’s bask in the joy of counting away
the blessing that life gives us every single day.
Happy Anniversary!
