Short Love Poem

Although the years will come and go
I hope, that in your heart you know
Forever I will love you true
I’m always there to see you through

Poems for a confirmation

Have confidence in your good skills
Hang on to every dream
Avoid the superficial thrills
They are not what they seem

Make your own goals to reach one day
And if you really try
You can achieve them anyway
We (I) will be standing by

Author: Horst Winkler

Don’t you think: A confirmand
Is in a real no-man’s-land?
No more a child? Already grown?
Don’t leave them with their doubts alone

Wedding Poems

The Harbour of Marriage

The sea of life has different tides
And all the ships on constant rides
Go up and down in ceaseless fight
'cause there are storms and reefs at night

But if by chance and friendly winds
Two ships should meet and there begins
A common trip to reach a goal
A life-long harbour for the soul
Then everywhere you'll hear it said
It's wonderful that they have met

Toast To A Wedding Couple

The lovely happy bride
Is such a pretty sight
She lightens up the room
Beside her is the groom
He stands so proud and tall
There is no doubt at all
That happiness is near
Let’s give them both a cheer!

For A Golden Anniversary

Your golden anniversary
Is a happy jubilee
And we love to celebrate
All together now this date

Author: Horst Winkler

Modern poem for
50 years married

A golden anniversary
Is similar to a grand prix
Although there was no race with cars
You are the winners now, the stars
You showed the world, what love can be
Congrats to you, respectfully

Romantic Poem

Many, many golden mornings
They shall lighten up your live
In the daytime until evening
Only good news shall arrive

May your nights be filled with slumber
And with dreams so soft and nice
About springtime, about summer
And an earthly paradise

Congratulation for the
Opening of a Business

My wish’s your business shall bloom
And that your revenue will zoom
Sales volumes will be magnified
Your customers are satisfied
And snatch all things out of your hand
Your enterprise- it will be grand

Good-bye Poems

Poems to someone, who wants to leave a team

We do not like to let you go
But as it seems you must
’cause life is in a constant flow
Who stays too long will rust

We hope, that what you seek, you’ll find
And everything is fine
Give us a buzz, we will not mind
Or sometimes drop a line

Author: Horst Winkler

There is certain gentleman
Who wants to leave us with the plan
The money, that he saved so long
To squander now, can this be wrong?

We say good luck and let him go
We’d like to keep him, but we know
No rope’s so strong to tie someone
Whose mind’s already on the run

Author: Horst Winkler

Kind poem to say good-bye to a team

It’s hard for me to leave this place
And say good-bye to you
The time has come - I have to face
A chapter, which is new
You can be sure: I won’t forget
How nice you’ve been to me
It’s really much to my regret
I don’t leave you with glee

Author: Horst Winkler

Thank you to a teacher

The years of school went by at last
And they are now part of the past

We thank you for your help so much
You know we needed such a touch
Sometimes a shove to find our way
And after all it was ok
Your efforts made each one for sure
More wise and also more mature

Author: Horst Winkler


Finally you can retire
After many busy years
The well-wishers formed a choir
Hoping they delight your ears

Author: Horst Winkler

Good Wishes for Retirement

No more hard work and instead
Many happy years ahead
May your life be full of ease
Spend your days with joy in peace

Author: Horst Winkler

Retirement brings the golden years
A time to relax without any fears
Finally there is an end to the grind
For now you have left the rat race behind

Gardening, travelling, long lazy days
Cooking, hiking and leisurely ways
The pleasures of life now will truly deploy
What more to say- have fun and enjoy";

Author: Horst Winkler

Thank you Poem

The Certain Word

Do you know the certain word
That is much too seldom heard
It is shy and tries to hide
It’s held back because of pride
But as soon as it appears
And it comes to someone’s ears
You will see what it can do
How much it will return to you
