    How to be strong and never cheat,

    I wish that you stay like this forever as a couple
    Beautiful, loving, caring, and, of course, wealthy.
  3. Every time you wanted to surprise me,
    You did so very secretly.
    Every time you wanted to teach me a lesson,
    You did so very cautiously.
    Every time you had to dream for me,
    You did so very ambitiously.
    Even when you fought in front of me,
    You did so very healthily.
    God must have planned something amazing for me
    To select parents for me so appropriately.
    I love you both, and I know you love me;
    I wish you a happy anniversary.
  4. On your anniversary,
    Please tell me what your desire will be.
    Would you like a bed of roses prepared
    Or an old picture of you both on Facebook shared?
    Would you like to sip on some bubbly
    Or spend the day by yourself with some privacy?
    Just make a demand, without even batting your eyelids—
    Take advantage of having obedient kids.
    Happy anniversary.

    I want to let you know how much I love you from the bottom of my heart.

    Have a great day celebrating your anniversary,
    And may the coming years of your life bring you joy and glee.
  13. If it weren't for your wedding day,
    There would be no anniversary.
    And if you didn't get married
    There would also be no me.
    This makes your anniversary twice as special
    And calls for a party.
    As you raise a toast and dance the night away,
    I hope you have a splendid anniversary.

    A perfect time for me to say
    How much I love you both to death,
    Which I won't stop doing until my very last breath.
    You both make the perfect pair,
    And that is the reason I want to share
    Good wishes with you on your anniversary
    The happiest couple in the world, you are meant to be.
  15. Everyone isn't as lucky
    To have cool parents like me.
    Everyone isn't as fortunate
    To have such caring parents as a safety net.
    Everyone isn't as blessed
    To have parents who never look stressed.
    More importantly, everyone isn't as excited as me
    To celebrate your anniversary.
  16. We have planned the day for you!
    The plan includes only you two
    Going on a short weekend getaway
    To a beautiful villa, where you'll get to stay.
    Relax, rejuvenate, and sip on cocktails.
    Go for a walk on the beach or pick a yacht to sail.
    We want you to chill out on your anniversary.
    This is a gift to you both from my sister and me.
  17. Whenever I look at you and Dad,
    I realize that you are the best parents I could have ever had.
    Whenever I look at the two of you,
    I realize that lucky kids like me are very few.
    I wish you spend the rest of your life happily.
    Have an awesome time as you celebrate your anniversary
  18. You both are the best;
    Please stay the same way.
    Don't ever change,
    No matter what others say.
    I don't care about anything else in the world
    As long as you both are by each other's side,
    And as long as you remain my parents,
    On my face there will always be a smile so wide.
    Happy anniversary.
  19. Having the childhood I had
    Was the greatest gift for me.
    If not for parents like you,
    I don't where I would be.
    Happy anniversary.
  20. I will always stick by you,
    Come hell or high water.
    You can count on me anytime;
    I want you to be proud of your daughter.
    On your anniversary, I want you to know
    For me you have always done the best things.
    You have given me many opportunities,
    With which you gave me wings.
    Happy anniversary.
