15th anniversary poems for your flower card

I love using poems in cards, in texts, and even in emails to send to people that I know would love to hear some encouraging and loving words. It’s an art form, and where my own words fail me, I know I can find a piece of work where someone else can fill in the gaps of what I wanted to say anyway.

Being married for 15 years is no small feat, we all need some pointers, tips, and tricks from you for keeping a marriage long lasting and healthy. We all could use some inspiration from you to know how to nurture a relationship for 15 years.

As you start planning for the celebration and how you’re going to shower your partner with love this anniversary, check out these 17 15th anniversary poems.

15th Anniversary

The 15th wedding anniversary is a big one. Every five years of course we celebrate a milestone, and of course ten is huge but 15 is amazing because of how you’ve surpassed so many life seasons together after all of these years.
For every milestone wedding anniversary, there’s a name that refers to a material that represents the kind of gift you give or just simply how solid and strong the marriage is after all this time. After 15 years, your marriage is crystal!

This is the year marker where it starts to become more quality and more inspiring. Crystal is heavy and dense, meaning it’s not light and fragile. Fifteen years is strong and you know that nothing can break through it easily.
You can tell if a crystal is real or not if it contains imperfections. No marriage is perfect, and being real, open, and vulnerable about the struggles of your marriage will let everyone on the outside looking in know that this is the real deal and you’ve got a quality marriage on your hands.

Celebrate your 15th anniversary with crystal, with celebrations, and of course with poems! Here are 17 examples of poems to use for your partner.

Poetry For Your Anniversary

We all spend our time in relationships trying to figure out how to communicate with others using love languages and learning each other’s.

If words are good for you and your partner, here are some poems for your anniversary.

1. Loving Pair

It takes two special people,
To make a loving pair.
There’s a joy just being around you,
A feeling we love to share.

We send anniversary wishes to you,
For years of joy and pleasure.
May each year keep getting better,
With memories to treasure.

By Joanna and Karl Fuchs

2. Together
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.


3. Happy Anniversary

When years are passing by like days,
and in my hand your hand is placed,
a knowing smile crosses your face.
A simple touch can still make my heart race.

When I can see my soul in your eyes,
and you see your soul in mine, we realize
that a love so deep can harbor no lies,
where our only tears shed were happy tears we’ve cried.

I love you as much now as I ever did before.
If possible, I may love you even more,
all starting from a feeling we did not ignore,
a feeling of connection we chose to explore.

I don’t know what it is that you saw in me.
In you I saw the utmost happiness that could ever be,
even more so on the day you and I became “we.”
I can still smile and say with love and truth, “Honey, I love you. Happy Anniversary.”

By Kirk A. Finney

4. Every Year

Every year that I’m with you
Has been better than before;
It’s hard for me to even think
How I could love you more.

Every year you’ve graced my life
Has been full of happiness;
I love your caring face, your voice,
Your tender, sweet caress.

Every year when this day comes,
I’m filled with love and pleasure;
Happy Anniversary, Love,
My joy, my delight, my treasure.

By Joanna Fuschs

5. More Time, More Love

Our (number of years) anniversary, Love,
Brings feelings of delight,
Thoughts of pleasure that you give me
Every day and every night.
I’m grateful for each day and hour;
I thank the Lord above
For giving me the precious gift:
Of your deep, enduring love.

As our lives go on and on,
One thing is always true:
To the very end, I’ll always wish
For more time, more love with you.

By Joanna Fuchs

15th Anniversary Poems

The 15th anniversary is different from the rest. To say you’ve been with the love of your life for 15 years is a big deal, so celebrate well!

6. I Remember

“I remember crying when I first read the inscription on our wedding bands; it was “forever starts now.” 15 years into our marriage, I feel like every day is the beginning of a new forever with you. You make me feel fearless, endless, and selfless; you have encouraged me to take risks and step out of my comfort zone. Thank you so much, my love. Happy 15th anniversary, and here’s to many more years.”

By Philo Yan

8. My Husband, On Our 15th Anniversary

My Darling can’t you see?
How very much you mean to me?
On this Our day, I’ve come to say;
I love you more and more each day.
Mere words alone, cannot express;
The love I feel, the tenderness,
The joy, and happiness my dear;
In knowing you are always near.
When you are down, and feeling blue;
I hope the sun comes shining through,
To cheer you up, and make life glow;
Because my dear I love you so.
May the Lord bless and keep you in His way;
And guide your footsteps day by day;
And may your cup of life overflow;
Because my dear I love you so.

By Gertrude Culberson

9. Just To Say

Just to say I love you
never seems enough.
I’ve said it so many times
I am afraid you won’t understand
what I mean when I say it.
How can so much feeling,
so much adoration fit into
those three little words.
But until I find some other
way of saying what I feel,
then “I love you” will have to do.
So no matter how many times I say it,
never take it lightly, for you are my life,
and my only love.
I love you now more
than ever before.
Happy Anniversary!

10. Treasure

When I look up and see you, my love,
My whole world is filled with pleasure.
Through all the years we’ve shared, my love,
You’ve been my greatest treasure.

The sun shines brighter when you’re near;
The air seems fresher too.
Everything that’s dear to me,
Seems perfect, because of you.

The years go by, it’s anniversary time,
My love for you keeps growing.
The pleasure it brings to be by your side,
Holding hands, makes me feel like I’m glowing.

So my love, on this special day,
Please believe what goes on in my heart.
Know that it’s true; I really love you!
And I’ve loved you this way from the start.

By Karl Fuchs

11. Love Sonnet 18

Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer’s lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm’d;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature’s changing course untrimm’d;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest;
Nor shall Death brag thou wander’st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou growest:
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this and this gives life to thee.

By William Shakespeare

12. You Breathe Life

You breathe life into my moments,
Like the fragrance of a rose in a room.
You add color to my life,
Like a rose in a desolate house.
Did I ever say, you protect me?
Like how the thorn of a rose guards the bearer.
Oh, my Rose…
I dream of a moment,
Where I can hold you, embrace you,
And then pull you close, to say softly in your ears,
“My rosette damsel…
You are the most treasured hue in the palette of my life.”

By Platonic Verses

13. When I Am Away From You

Whenever I am away from you,
The distance between us
A burdensome thing,
I always think of you in colors
The smell of coffee as you so proudly make it for me,
The perfect sunlight spilling in through window.
I miss you even when you are beside me.
I dream of your body even when you are sleeping in my arms.
The words I love you could never be enough
I suppose we’ll have to invent new ones

By Christopher Poindexter

Poems About Marriage

While love is easy to write about, marriage might not necessarily be. Here are some poets that have already put it into words for you.

14. How Do I Love You

“How do I love you?
Oh, this way and that way.
Oh, happily. Perhaps
I may elaborate by

demonstration? Like
this, and
like this and

no more words now”

By Mary Oliver

15. Tear It Down

We find out the heart only by dismantling what
the heart knows. By redefining the morning,
we find a morning that comes just after darkness.
We can break through marriage into marriage.
By insisting on love we spoil it, get beyond
affection and wade mouth-deep into love.
We must unlearn the constellations to see the stars.
But going back toward childhood will not help.
The village is not better than Pittsburgh.
Only Pittsburgh is more than Pittsburgh.
Rome is better than Rome in the same way the sound
of raccoon tongues licking the inside walls
of the garbage tub is more than the stir
of them in the muck of the garbage. Love is not
enough. We die and are put into the earth forever.
We should insist while there is still time. We must
eat through the wildness of her sweet body already
in our bed to reach the body within that body.

By Jack Gilbert

16. The White Rose

The red rose whispers of passion,
And the white rose breathes of love;
O, the red rose is a falcon,
And the white rose is a dove.

But I send you a cream-white rosebud
With a flush on its petal tips;
For the love that is purest and sweetest
Has a kiss of desire on the lips.

By John Boyle O-Reilly

17. This Marriage

May these vows and this marriage be blessed.
May it be sweet milk,
this marriage, like wine and halvah.
May this marriage offer fruit and shade
like the date palm.
May this marriage be full of laughter,
our every day a day in paradise.
May this marriage be a sign of compassion,
a seal of happiness here and hereafter.
May this marriage have a fair face and a good name,
an omen as welcomes the moon in a clear blue sky.
I am out of words to describe
how spirit mingles in this marriage.

By Rumi

I hope some of these words and poems have inspired you to find your own words to tell your partner how much you value and love them. Or maybe you’ve found the perfect one to write to them and tell them in poetic form. Either way, I hope that this post has guided you in the right direction to communicating with your spouse how you feel with some of these 15th anniversary poems.

Marriage is a difficult concept to put into writing and words, and to explain how you feel about someone after that long can be difficult if words aren’t your main form of communication or your love language.

It feels like there are only so many ways to express love and adoration, but some of these poets have found new ways to say it with ease and effortless talent of expression.

Disney poems are a great source of love poems too!
