For their anniversary, say something thoughtful. Wedding anniversary poems can convey positive observations about a marriage, as this anniversary message does. 

Best Marriage

Your anniversary marks the day
 When you both said "I do."
 The two of you became as one,
 A marriage bright and new.

Now time has passed; your love is strong;
 You passed the early test.
 Your tender bond grows with passing time;
 Your marriage is the kind that's best!

Sometimes wedding anniversary messages can take a look back to compare the marriage as it was with what it is and what it will become. This free verse (nonrhyming) poem does that. 


Remember the first flush of love
 that drew you powerfully together?
 It still feeds the unassailable bond
 that makes your marriage so secure.
 Remember all the qualities about each other
 you found so endearing?
 They are still there,
 and new ones create sweet surprises.
 Remember thinking that this love
 would last forever?
 Your love has strengthened and grown
 into eternal affection and admiration.
 Years from now, you'll look back
 at this anniversary
 and realize you love each other
 more than ever.

Happy Anniversary!

Really Rare

Sometimes, when people marry,
They have not thought it through.
It does not go the way they planned,
And it makes them kind of blue.

But your joining seems a blessing;
You seem such a happy pair.
It makes the ones who know you
Realize you’re really rare.

So we’re glad we can celebrate with you,
On this your anniversary day.
We know your love will triumph
Through your whole life, come what may.

By Karl and Joanna Fuchs
