The path that leads to happiness is so narrow 
that two cannot walk on it 
unless they have become one.

The mystery is... 
How does love begin? 
The challenge is how 
to make it stay. 
The magic is when 
it does...

Here's a Leap Year Wedding Anniversary verse, poem for a couple who married on Leap Year Day (Leap Day) ie 29th February and therefore only have an Anniversary every 4 years. Leap Year Day (Leap Day) is the day our calendar realigns itself with the solar year.(The orbit takes not exactly 365 days but 6 hours more than that, hence...6x4=24 hours)

You only get to celebrate every 4th year
The anniversary of your hitch
On the good side, it'll be (2032)
Before you face the seven year itch !

Happy 1st (4th) Anniversary to
Two Leap Year Love Birds

Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking together in the same direction.

Antoine de Saint-Exupery

A good marriage doesn't just happen. 
It is made out of wisdom and compromise, 
Sharing and caring. 
Here's to the past -
And the joys you've both known. 
Here's to the present -
This day all your own. 
And here's to the future -
May every new day 
Be especially happy for you both 

Have a Wonderful Wedding Anniversary

Hey, there's more Wedding Anniversary poems, verses, quotes

How fortunate we are today
As we take the opportunity to say...
Privileged we are to share yet another year all together
Proud of our wonderful parents - may your love last forever
You faced your challenges... yet gave up... never
Always striving towards mutual respect and understanding
Now we see the secret to a marriage based on giving, not only demanding
Not yours was the example to undermine and scorn
Instead into love and kindness we were born
Vehemently you have held onto your marriage
Ever determined to stay together through time and its passage
Resolute and purposeful you have led by example
Shown us all the way to a marriage incredible
And so, Mom and Dad, we need to share
Resounding Happy Anniversary for your love and care
Yours is indeed a marriage quite rare

I knew that I had been touched by love the first time I saw you,
and I felt your warmth, and I heard your laughter.
I knew that I had been touched by love
when I quit making plans with my friends,
and started dreaming dreams with you.
I knew that I had been touched by love
when suddenly I stopped thinking in terms of "me",
and started thinking in terms of "we".
I knew that I had been touched by love
when suddenly I couldn't make any decisions by myself anymore,
and I had the strong desire to share everything with you.
I knew that I had been touched by love
the first time we spent alone together,
and I knew I wanted to stay with you forever
because I had never felt this touched by love.
I knew that I had been touched by love

When I awoke this morning next to you in bed

The (3,650th) morning I’ve done so
Since (10) years ago we wed

Happy Anniversary, my darling

© V4C

We simply take for granted,
From day to passing day,

Each sacrifice they make for us
In their own loving way.

But then we grow and finally learn,
The way that children do,

How much their love has really meant,
How thoughtful they've been, too

And so this comes with all the thanks
You both deserve and more.

For there aren't two dearer parents
Than the one this card's for

© V4C

True love is a sacred flame
That burns eternally,
And none can dim its special glow
Or change its destiny.
True love speaks in tender tones
And hears with gentle ear,
True love gives with open heart
And true love conquers fear.
True love makes no harsh demands
It neither rules nor binds,
And true love holds with gentle hands
The hearts that it entwines.
True love is what we have

And will forever more

I loved you when we wed

And you, forever, I’ll adore

Happy Anniversary, my darling

© V4C

This special anniversary wish 
That comes with love to you 
Brings warm and heartfelt thanks 
For all the thoughtful things you do
It also comes to let you know 
You both mean more each day
To everyone your lives have touched 
In such a loving way.

With every beat of my heart
I feel yours inside of mine,
Together they beat as one
Keeping perfect time.

With every beat of my heart
I know that yours does to,
And every time it pumps
I know I'm feeling you.

With every beat of my heart
I feel mine loving you,
And with every beat of yours
I know you love me too.

With every beat of my heart

I thank God that I met you

I fell deeply, deeply, deeply in love

And thankfully you did too

With every beat of my heartv 
And through every pore, and every sinew

Every cell, my very being
Is totally in love with you

Happy Anniversary, my darling

When we first met
It was a dream come true
Which I can never forget
Because it was only you
Who was there for me
When I was down
There I could see
It was you I found
To bev Forever placed in my heart
Which you can see
That you were mine
Happy anniversary

Theres no problem revealing the age of John 
He's 80, a well known fact 
If you say Joan's age, thats a definite breach 
Of the Official Secrets Act

All the best from the (Docrafts) crowd

In July, the year (55)

Take a generous dose of love 
Add a measure or two of respect
Mix in some co-operation 
Stir with the spoon of kindness
Add a dash of affection 
A cuddle or two to taste 
And a goodly dollop of humour 
Sprinkle on tolerance and patience
Bake it in a bowl of friendship 
And what have you got? 
Your marriage through the years 

Keep Cooking On Gas

Wife regularly on TV game shows 

For 25 years 
You've perfected the art 
Of staying together
By...keeping apart

It's not easy for you, Dad 
You seek your own space 
You slope off to watch telly 
But still see (Mom's Mum's Mam's) face 

You moan a lot and jingle your change 
But let's face it, there's no escape 
You can flick the remote as much as you like 
But she's on the TV and on every tape 

Over a pint in the pub, you have a good moan 
That's the fate of every Magpie 
While Mam perfects her game show skills 
Giving talks at the WI 

It's good Mam, you've got a bike 
It's so much better than walking 
Dad just thinks it's a blessed relief
It's the only time you stop talking

This is a very insulting tribute
But take it in good heart 
Cogratulations Mam and Dad 
You've reached Silver together...apart 

Lots of love etc

Anniversary Verses

On Boxing Day in '36 
John and Kath said "I do" 
Joined together for 60 years 
That's mighty powerful glue 

From (Thattown) to (Thistown) 
You've come a long long way 
Now on top of the world in (Dimond Court) 
Overlooking (Roker's) Bay 

Still very active 
And rarely seen apart 
You're teenage geriatrics 
Modern and young at heart 

We can reveal that John's 85 
That's a well known fact 
Telling Kathy's age would be a breach 
Of the Official Secrets Act 

Through Silver, Gold now Diamond 
That's a long bridal path
Congratulation John 
Congratulations Kath 

Lots of love etc

Anniversary Verses

Forty six to ninety six 
That's 50 years all told 
If marriage was an Olympic sport 
You'd have got yourselves a gold 

Proud parents to two children 
Grandparents to five more 
Who visit the "Harper Bakery" 
It's Gran's cooking they all adore 

Not only them...you've also had 
Young Hudson mouths to fill 
You could have had a thriving business 
But you forgot to present the bill 

Gladys.. work has kept you fit 
And Bill.. you never moan 
Well life's not for carrying cases
With a butler of your own 

50 years...it's clear you made 
The perfect partner choice 
Congratulations, lots of love 
From your loving sister, Joyce

Anniversary Verses


It's 25 years since they wed 
Put out the Silver Banners 
Congratulations Bob and Joan 
The cowboy caravanners 

Bob's got trophies for being best dressed 
Which no-one at all begrudges 
Except for some catty cowboys 
Who say he hypnotised the judges 

But Bob just downs his whiskey
He's not one for hassle 
It's Joans skillful fingers 
That does wonders for his tassel

Joan's the boss of the Kirton ranch 
Bob thinks that's fine 
He's always towed the caravan 
And always toed the line 

Sharing a saddle for 25 years
You both have a sense of fun 
Congratulations Mam and Dad 
From Donny, your loving son

Anniversary Verses

Bob Lifelong Pigeon Fancier 

T'was in May '47 
Bob and Maureen said " I do " 
50 years together 
Oh how the years just flew 

They've taken foreign holidays 
Jetted off through the air 
They've flown round the dance floor 
As an old time dancing pair 

Sparks have flown from Bob 
As a Blacksmith at his trade 
And once he was a hero 
Flying round to peoples aid 

Maureen's never clipped Bob's wings 
To the "Pigeon End" he likes to roam 
But like a dedicated pigeon 
He always comes back home 

Such a really lovely couple 
Rarely seen apart 
After 50 years together 
They're still just "chicks" at heart 

Love and Congratulations 
to the Pigeon King and his Queen, Maureen

Anniversary Verses

This is a Golden Wedding Tribute 
A short but poignant tale 
Of Jim and Ava's life and times 
In the Garden of Eden- Vale 

They wed and soon had troubles 
Evelyn and Jim to name but two 
Jack made it triple trouble 
So they quit...well wouldn't you? 

The kids grew up and flew the nest 
Jim took retirement pay 
Then flopped down in the kitchen 
He's been there to this day 

Ava took up writing slogans 
When not cemented to TV 
She catches sight of the kitchen hermit 
When he fetches cups of tea 

For 50 years the strong silent bloke 
Kept the love of his slogan writer 
He retained his mystery...and never revealed
How to fill a cigarette lighter 

Congratulations Mam and Dad 
And Nana and Grandpa as well 
This comes with love from E, J and J 
A, B, C and L

Anniversary Verses

SILVER FOR BRASS 

When young Jack met young Rose 
As he stared into her eyes 
He said his family were made of Brass 
He wasn't telling lies 

He said "I'm into heavy metal" 
'There's money' she thought in scrap 
Her head was turned and before she knew 
She was sitting on his lap 

She misheard when he said he drove for Jet 
She thought it was planes he flew 
When he said he spent time at his club 
She never dreamt it was C.I.U. 

She thought she had a real good catch 
So in '74 they wed 
To the strains of "Here comes the bride"
Played by Motorhead 

That was all a quarter century ago 
Where have the years (and Jack's hair) gone? 
They now have 3 strapping lads 
Alan, James and John 

To celebrate reaching Silver 
Have a few jars of beer 
And Rose, why not make Jack's night 
Put on your Morrison's gear !! 

All the best etc

Congratulations Eileen and Ted 

While he's busy model making 
And supporting the local team 
She is seeking the perfect shape 
Keep it up girl, you can dream 

Since the tortoise has to emulate 
The decor of Eileen and Ted 
It prays they'll not choose tartan 
But tortoiseshell instead 

To the budding model and her model husband 
We'd like to raise our glasses 
Congrats on reaching Silver 
From all the "Deli Lasses"
