A Poem About Rain and Love

This poem is about rain and love. It was inspired by my first date with Anita, nearly 5 years ago. We ended up going for dessert and a movie. We also danced in the rain, which was really special, and remains one of our treasured memories.


Danced in the Rain

I always dreamt
of holding your hand.
A simple act,
for my heart it was grand.

The way those raindrops,
settled on your hair,
I could not help,
but dream and just stare.

A beautiful love song,
arrived by mere chance.
With humble manners,
I asked you to dance.

I’ll forever cherish,
that moment so dear,
Loved holding you,
tightly and near.

As we danced in the rain,
it was truly sublime,
From that beautiful moment,
I knew you’d be mine.

This poem is great example that rain doesn’t always represent or symbolize sadness and sorrow. It may also represent a new beginning, as it did on our first date, along with romance.

We both realized that we had an amazing connection right from that first date. She laughed at all my jokes (good sign), and we just had so much to talk about. There wasn’t a dull or awkward moment the entire evening.

It was one of those moments where you felt like you’ve know this person for a very long time, and you forget that you haven’t.

Lady in Red by Chris de Burgh was the random song that came on the radio, and we danced to it that evening. It was also our first song that we danced to on our wedding day, so it means a lot to us.

I’ll end this blog post with a little bit of advice for all the guys out there. Try dancing in the rain with someone you just started dating, or even your long-time girlfriend or wife of many years. Follow that up with today’s featured poem. If you do that, there’s a very good chance that you’ll melt her heart.

Just make sure she is officially yours, because you wouldn’t want to scare her away with the last line in the last stanza. Good luck!

A Poem for a Wonderful Nurse

The following poem is dedicated to a wonderful nurse named Ulrike. She is a nurse that puts her heart and soul into helping others in need.


Wonderful Nurse

She’s a truly,
wonderful nurse,
With the sick and ill,
knows how to converse.

Always willing
to give a helping hand,
Has vast medical knowledge,
yet seeks to expand.

Post-surgery care,
is her passionate domain,
Sometimes it’s a
bit of a drain.

Determined and positive,
routinely remains,
Comforts patients,
during their struggles and pains.

She helped me a lot,
as a teacher and guide,
Listens patiently,
easy to confide.

To me she is
a wonderful friend,
My blessings and love,
I’d like to extend.

A Sad Poem About Sorrow and Rain

This morning was a cold, cloudy, and rainy day. So I took advantage of the outside environment to create visions, which helped me write the following sad poem. It talks about feeling the emotion of sorrow, outside in the rain.



Stepped outside
into the rain,
Prepared to erupt
with so much pain.

Why must I be
sorrows keeper?
It’s like a dagger,
that’s pushed in deeper.

Outside, inside,
it became all dark.
The rain poured down,
it was my spark.

I cried with anger,
and growing fury,
I wanted justice,
not a jury.

Even if they dared,
to look inside,
They’d all just scatter,
like cowards hide.

The rain flooded my
body clean.
Where are these pastures?
they all call green?

The storm was twofold,
because I cried,
My emotions temporarily,
did subside.

But what shall happen,
if there’s no rain tomorrow?
Will I feel
the same deep sorrow?


Rain may symbolize sorrow or gloom and sadness. But it also symbolizes the act of cleansing and renewal. In this poem, the rain was meant to represent both sorrow/sadness and renewal/cleansing.

Have you ever been in the rain when you were angry? This doesn’t happen just in movies. I recall when it rained dogs and cats one day, and I went for a jog. The experience was truly liberating. The simple act of rain pouring on me helped me calm down and deal with my emotions.

Don’t get me wrong, I used to be one of those “runners” from the rain. I’d seek out shelter so that I wouldn’t get wet. But I don’t do that any longer. These days, when I’m caught out in the rain, I end up savouring the moment.

I think it became meditative to me.

I hope you also learn to appreciate the cleansing powers of the rain. If you’re feeling sad right now, I hope today’s poem aids you with dealing with your emotions.

I think that strong negative emotions are sometimes just like the rain, where we just need to ride them out.

Breaking Up Poem


Yesterday I was shocked to find out that a good friend of mine is breaking up with his girlfriend of many years. Both Anita and I thought this couple was really good together. But I guess, sometimes you just can’t predict these things.

That’s the motivation behind this breaking up poem. I hope it helps all those individuals that are breaking up or have recently broken up with their partners. I wish you all the best if you are going through a difficult time in your lives.


Opposite Directions

The love we shared,
I won’t deny,
But I cannot do this,
I cannot lie.

Our many differences,
that may seem small,
When combined,
are more than tall.

I don’t expect,
for us to change.
Life without you,
may be strange.

Sorrow stabs my,
confused heart,
I know we’re meant,
to be apart.

Opposite directions,
our journey’s lead,
Our damaged bond
must be freed.

Breaking up with someone that you’ve shared a close bond and relationship with for a long time is often very difficult. However, sometimes it’s just something that has to be done.

During a break up, a person will often experience many strong emotions that include sorrow and confusion. Many may also feel like it’s the end of the world. They may get tunnel vision and their emotions take over and control their reason and common sense.

Amongst all of the pain and confusion, it’s important to be strong and remember that it’s not the end of the world. Even though it may seem like it is.

If you are dealing with a break up right now, please remember that there is someone out there for you that will love you for who you are, and will be your perfect match.

As long as you love others, and allow others to love you, then anything is possible.

I truly hope that this break up poem has helped you put some things into perspective. Over time, your heart will heal, and you will find someone that you are meant to be with and love for the rest of your life.

1st Birthday Poem for Baby Girls


Yesterday, I promised to write a 1st birthday poem for baby girls today, and I’m committed to keeping that promise. When I think of baby girls, I think of cute pink outfits. I’ll run with that idea and see what I could come up with.

Hope you enjoy it and share it with a beautiful baby girl that is just turning one.


Little Princess

A little princess,
from a far off place,
You light up the room,
with your little cute face.

It’s your first birthday,
a royal occasion,
Your smile attracts many,
it’s like an invasion.

Today is your day,
we’ve arrived to serve,
Hugs and kisses,
you always deserve.

As the princess of the
highest court,
To your playground,
we’re here to escort.

Little princess, we
wish you the best,
May your journey,
be joyful with zest.

That baby girl poem is based on a princess theme. I’m sure a lot of parents can relate to that, since they see their baby girls as little princesses.

A baby girl’s first birthday is definitely a big deal. We all know that it doesn’t take much for a little baby girl to attract others attention. All it takes is a cute smile and her natural magnetism is able to attract and put a smile on the most serious individuals.

A few days ago I was sitting at a local Starbucks and doing some work, when a mother with a baby girl and her grandpa sat down across from me. She was probably around one, and seemed like the most happy little baby girl.

You should have seen the amount of attention she attracted. There were about three other ladies sitting close by that were completely mesmerized by this little baby girl. One of the women couldn’t take her eyes off of her, and kept on teasing her.

I hope you enjoyed reading today’s 1st birthday baby girl poem, and have fun sharing it with that wonderful little baby girl in your life.

1st Birthday Poem for a Baby Boy

My sister loved the invitation poem that I wrote for her yesterday. Today, the goal is to write an actual 1st birthday poem for baby Christian.

In this pic baby Christian is just a few hours old


If your baby boy or someone else’s is celebrating his first birthday, then this poem is a wonderful and memorable gesture. I plan on framing it with a picture of baby Christian, prior to giving it to my sister (hopefully she doesn’t read this post before his birthday).

Don’t worry tomorrow’s post will feature a 1st birthday poem for baby girls (if you need one for a girl).


Adorable Baby Boy

Happy birthday,
adorable baby boy,
Hope you enjoy,
this little cute toy.

Time flew by,
it’s been a full year,
We love you so much,
you’re precious and dear.

Blow out your candle,
it’s your very first,
You look beautiful,
affectionately nursed.

It’s just the beginning,
you’ve had a quick taste,
A long healthy life,
live and embrace.

Happy birthday,
adorable baby boy,
Loving you,
we truly enjoy!

I hope you liked that poem, and will share it with a special baby boy in your life.

Now I just need to figure out which picture of Christian I should use for the frame. Maybe I’ll use the cute pic from the previous post. I know I have some more really cute ones of him, I just need to find the sd card that they’re located on.

I’m gonna go find the pics now, and add a few to this post.


baby Christian at 11 days of age

Safe and warm at 11 days


He looks very serious in that pic, lol. He’s probably thinking, “why am I strapped into this thing? and what are you pointing at me?”.


baby Christian at 5 months of age

Extra happy at 5 months of age

Looks really happy in this one, and looks older than 5 months in my opinion.

baby Christian inside a basket

looking so happy inside a basket at 5 months (who needs toys?)


Hope you enjoyed these pics of baby Christian. I will post a current pic of him closer to his 1st birthday. But first I’ll need to take one.

These pics remind us how fast babies grow. That’s why it’s important to constantly take pictures and videos of them. They change week by week, and we need to make sure we record those precious memories.

It’s also nice to show them their baby pictures when they’re a bit older (or much older). It’s something every person will cherish.

Our baby pictures may also be used as a reminder that there was a time when we were a lot less serious, and filled with so much joy. They could help us put things into perspective.

Anyways, good luck sharing the baby birthday poem featured today, and make sure you give lots of hugs and kisses to that special birthday boy.

1st Birthday Invitation Poem


Today’s poem will be a 1st birthday invitation poem. My sister’s baby boy Christian will be celebrating his first birthday in a couple weeks from now. So I thought it would be nice to write an invitation poem for the invites she sends out. If you like the poem, you are also welcome to use it for your invites.


baby Christian excited about his 1st birthday invitation poem


To personalize it for your invites, all you have to do is change the baby’s name in the poem below. In the last stanza you will need to change “his” to “hers” for baby girls.


First Year

It has been,
a beautiful year,
Baby Christian,
has blessed us with cheer.

Grown so much,
we’re so very proud,
Brings us joy,
we’re still on a cloud.

Christian our precious,
would like to invite,
To a celebration,
filled with delight.

One year ago,
it was his birth,
Let’s rejoice,
at his first year,
on earth!

A baby’s first birthday is always a big deal (rightfully so). It’s a time when we celebrate the very first year in a brand new human beings life.

When a baby is just born she/he is very delicate and immobile. But one year old babies have developed to the point where we may play with them and easily recognize their emotions through their facial expressions.

They are certainly buckets full of fun. Some of the most popular videos on Youtube are of babies that are around 1 year of age. One of my favourite ones is Charlie bit my finger.

I hope this first year invitation poem helps bring a little bit of uniqueness to your invites. Feel free to post a comment and let us all know how your baby’s 1st year birthday party turned out. We’ve love to hear about it.

Valentine’s Day Poem


This morning I decided to write a Valentine’s Day Poem for my wife. Valentine’s Day is still four and a half months away, so I need to make sure she doesn’t see it until the day arrives.

“Sweetheart, if you are reading this post prior to February 14th, please click away and come back on Valentines.

You’re all welcome to share this poem with your sweetheart. I’m sure she or he will love it.


Love of Mine

Happy Valentine’s Day,
beautiful love of mine,
My only wish is
with you to spend time.

I must say,
my heart is complete.
Life with you
is much more than sweet.

The path we take,
our close bond shall lead,
love for each other,
our souls it shall feed.

I’m forever yours,
with joy and bliss,
Please accept,
this passionate kiss!

by anitapoems.com


We all know that Valentine’s Day is a special day of the year. It reminds us of the love that we share with the love of our life. I also think that it reminds many of us to celebrate love and try to be romantic throughout the year.

Sure sometimes it’s difficult to be romantic. Not because we don’t want to, but rather because of our hectic and fast-paced lifestyles. We just need to remember to relax, smell the flowers, and share some flowers.

I’ve learned that it really doesn’t take that much effort to show affection and be romantic. A 20 minute massage, kisses on the neck, or a simple candlelight dessert at home will do the job.

A short, simple, rhyming love poem like the one above is another example of how we may all ignite some romance at any time in our lives. It’s not about spending lots of money. It’s about doing something for the person that you love from the bottom of your heart. That speaks volumes, and can never be bought.

I’d just like to wish you, not only a wonderfully successful Valentine’s Day, but also an affectionate and romantic year.


Best of Luck,

Funny Dog Poem


Today, I will write a funny dog poem for all you dog lovers out there.

Last night we watched Beethoven 4th, which is a funny comedy about two St Bernard’s that are accidentally switched between two families. One is very obedient and spoiled, while the other is reckless and instinctive.

I recall watching the first movie with my family when I was a kid. It was hilarious, we had a good laugh. This one was also quite entertaining. It’s a typical family comedy that the whole family may enjoy.

Beethoven is the inspiration behind the following funny dog poem. Enjoy.



Cute little trouble,
when he was young.
Licks the floor clean,
with his red tongue.

It’s amazing,
how fast he grows,
Will find your old sandwich,
with his shiny black nose.

Nothing more gross,
than his buckets of drool,
Drinking from toilets,
he finds pretty cool.

He’s super friendly,
but always finds trouble,
Loves digging through garbage,
and seeks piles of rubble.

No matter the day,
he’ll share his affection,
Just don’t ask him,
for his stick collection.

My parents have a 4 year old cocker spaniel that definitely behaves like Beethoven in that movie. He’ll chase and bark at anything that moves. He has clearly mastered the art of making a huge mess.

I think he thinks that he’s the king of the world. He even picks on my brother-in-laws huge Rottweiler whenever he gets a chance.

I should record some of his unruly antics and post them on Youtube for others to get a good laugh. I’m sure the fact that he’s one of those super hyper dogs has a lot to do with it.

At the end of the day, all dogs are filled with love, and are always willing to show it to others.

We all need to remember to love our dogs unconditionally, because we know they love us (they show it all the time). They are truly special pets that enrich our lives.

Housewarming Poem


This housewarming poem is dedicated to my aunt and uncle, who’ve recently purchased their dream home. We’re actually going to be leaving for their housewarming party in just a few minutes. So I’m glad I finished it in time.


Dream Home

A mutual dream
finally came true,
Beautiful house,
it’s perfect for you.

All these years,
you both worked so hard,
Now you have a
much spacious yard.

We’re so happy,
you love your new nest,
Looks amazing,
we’re impressed.

Colors match,
nice design,
We surely noticed,
the welcome sign.

In this wonderful home,
precious moments you’ll share,
We wish you the best,
love you and care.

Congrats Mariola and Peter. Anita and I would like to wish you many years of wonderful memories and moments in your new home. We’re so happy for you both.

It’s Party time!
