Why Write Poetry to Celebrate Your Anniversary?
When it's time to write something in an anniversary card or letter, there are several different ways you can go. One way is to write an anniversary poem. Anniversary poems can help us express what we want to say in a more eloquent or cheesy way than what we might do otherwise.
You have a couple options once you decide that you need an anniversary poem for your card. You can write your own love poem for your sweetheart, or you can use a poem that is already written that fits your desired expression. Love poems can be a great addition to an anniversary message for a wife, girlfriend, husband, or boyfriend.
The following anniversary poems can give you the inspiration you need to write your own poem. If, however, you don't have the time, creativity, or energy to write your own anniversary poem, then you can use one of these love poems in your message.
For a Wife, Girlfriend, Boyfriend, or Husband
Best Gift I Ever Took
We live each day like it's our anniversary
Every day with you it's fun and merry
Today is just a day like any other to us
So we don't have to make a lot of big fuss
Even though you're my greatest treasure
You'll try to give a gift of equal measure
At the end of the day, it will be your look
That continues the best gift I ever took
For a Husband or Wife
We are blessed to be husband and wife
We are two people who love sharing life
It's the journey together that matters most
There's nothing more in life I want to boast
Today, we're marked with another year
And I'm glad to have my sweetheart near
With gratitude I thank you for your time
And hope that we continue to rhyme
For a Girlfriend or Boyfriend
Ring Each Others' Bells
I have enjoyed my time with you
We had fun while our love grew
Now we come upon a milestone
Of neither of us being alone
We laugh together and smile
We might fight once in a while
We're learning each other well
We like to ring each others' bells
For a First Anniversary
A Year Gone By
A year gone by in the blink of an eye
Meals, conversations, and laughing
Wondering what the future holds for us
We'll look back years from now
With gratitude for having each other
And we'll know we had a good time
For a 25th Anniversary
Twenty Five Years
Twenty five years is a quarter of a century
And I still want to earn pennies with you
We're not the longest that's ever been
We're not the newest couple in our town
We've learned many lessons together
We've struggled, laughed, and made up
In the middle of our ocean of time
We're sailing together on our adventure

How to Present Your Poem
Once you make a decision to give your significant other an anniversary poem, you still need to figure out a creative and fun way to present the poem. Here are some cool ideas:
- Frame it. You can put the poem on top of a special picture, wrap it up, and put a bow on it.
- Read it. Whether in public or at a private candlelit dinner prepared by you, reading a poem to your lover is one of the most romantic gestures you can make.
- Create a YouTube video. Creating a video is one of the best ways to communicate your love when you are far apart. Think like a director and enhance your video with artistic shots and mood music.
- Turn your poem into a song. Nothing is cooler than having your own song for your relationship. Custom songwriters can take your poem and create the perfect melody to set the mood of your words.
