Funny Anniversary Poems

I've split the first funny anniversary poem into two. Or it might be more accurate to say that I've made two versions of it -- one to give your spouse and one you can give your friends. The first is a version to give to your friends or family.

Funny Anniversary Poems...lovebirds

A Gift
You have a gift that’s sweet
And rare.
It’s just that you’re a perfect pair.

The years go by
With no regret
Because you are a perfect set.

What matter if this thought is sappy?
So long as both of you are happy.

Happy Anniversary!

The second version of this poem is for your husband or wife.

A Gift
We have a gift that's sweet
And rare.
It's just that we're a perfect pair.

The years go by
With no regret
Because we are a perfect set.

What matter if this thought is sappy?
So long as 
Both of us
Are happy.

Happy Anniversary!

Short and Sweet Anniversary Poem

Happily Ever After

“Happily Ever After”
is really a myth.
(It depends on whom
you’re happily-ever-after with.)

If I had to do it over,
I suppose that it’s true,
I’d still want to “happily-ever-after”
With you.
Happy Anniversary!

Funny Anniversary Poem, but NOT too mushy!

If you haven't figured it out yet, I don't like overly mushy anniversary poems, even if they're funny. The next funny anniversary poem is a slice of life with a slight edge of funny.

If this is how your life feels right now, you might want to make a copy of this poem and present it with a kiss.

I Still Love You
The dog threw up.
The kids are ill.
Our bank account
Is almost nil.

The laundry’s
Stacked up in a pile,
And still I know
I have to smile.

Although our life
Might look like blight,
I get to be
With you each night.

It may be tough,
That much is true,
But still I love
My life with you.

Happy Anniversary!

Possibly Insulting Funny Anniversary Poem

The next funny anniversary poem could be for any wedding anniversary, even the 50th, although there is another 50th wedding anniversary poem further down on this page.

Warning: Don't give his to your husband or wife if he or she won't find it amusing to hear about their grayness or wrinkles!

I'll Go On Wrinkling
I know that you love me,
And I love you, too.
And nothing in life
Is as straight or as true.
Today may be special –
A mark for the year.
But living each day
Is a gift
That is clear.
So I’ll go on wrinkling
And you go on graying –
So long as “I love you!”
Is what we are saying.

Happy Anniversary!

Special Milestone Funny Anniversary Poems

The following five funny anniversary poems are a series starting with the 10th and proceeding to the 50th. The first one is best to give friends, (unless you want your special someone to think that you're going to wait 10 years before you come up with another card or gift.

Happy 10th Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary.
It's been ten years -- you've made it!
You've stuck it out.
You held on tight.
You're not the least bit jaded.

Happy Anniversary.
You're now at number ten.
So stick it out for ten more years;
I'll send a poem again.

Happy 20th Anniversary
Our marriage reached a growing point --
We've racked up twenty years.
And now it's time to celebrate
with wine (or several beers).
It's time to settle back a while,
enjoy the peace we've earned.
(Because if we don't celebrate
our friends will be concerned!)
Happy Anniversary!

30th Wedding Anniversary
Feeling happy, feeling flirty.
Our old marriage just turned thirty.
Thirty years,
and decades? Three.
It's been a married living spree!
Let's pop champagne
or sip some wine.
Let's celebrate;
we're feeling fine.
Feeling young,
feeling sturdy.
Our old marriage just turn thirty!

Happy Anniversary!

40th Wedding Anniversary
Forty years?
It sounds so gruesome.
Can't believe
we're still a twosome.
Still a wild
dynamic duo.
It's more fun
when there are two-0.
Two to laugh
and two to dance.
Two who still 
recall romance.
Two who feel
forever carried.
Two who feel
like newly married!

Happy Anniversary!

50th Wedding Anniversary
Our marriage,
middle aged and thrifty,
Had a milestone,
turning fifty.
Fifty years
of sharing bed,
of sharing kids,
and life.
Instead
of looking back
to see the score,
let's look ahead 
to fifty more!

Happy Anniversary!
