Anyone have time to critique this poem for me?

I'm not a poet but thought I would try my hand at writing a poem for my SO for our 3 yr anniversary. I know it needs improvement and there are a few things that I'm not happy with. Thoughts?


The first time I met you, I knew we had something unique.
The first date, I wanted to last for at least a week.
The first time you put your arms around me, I knew that’s where I fit in.
Yes, these last three years have been full of first times for me. To begin
My first country music concert, my first hockey game
My first night at Country USA, my first time at *** County Fair (What a shame)
Let’s not forget the first times we have shared
Remember the first time we made hamburgers? Or were they meat balls? Not that I cared.
And who can forget the first time we planted an “eating kind of” plant. Alas
While I’m looking forward to many more firsts with you, I want you to be my last

  • 2nd line could be ......I wanted our first date to last for a week........but otherwise I think it is very sweet and should be as you wrote it. It is what's in your heart that counts. Congrats!!

  • Maybe change the title to Firsts?

    I'm usually pretty good about this stuff but today I'm drawing a blank.

  • I like it. It's very sweet. I agree with the title being changed to Firsts.

  • It is a wee hard to read. Does he like poems?

  • I like it and I'm sure he will too. It seems sweet and heartfelt and romantic. :)

  • the first time we met, I felt we were unique
    Our first date, my heart beat til my breath grew weak
    the first time you put your arms around me
    I knew that I would always belong
    yes, these past years have been a song
    that firsts of so much count, a country music concert,
    the hockey game
    My first Country USA, our time at the Country Fair,
    my heart was tame
    let's remember the first t;ime we share
    ..when we cooked together, more hungry than a bear
    let's remember all the first times past
    and always know our togetherness will forever last. by Granny144

  • I agree with changing the title.

    It's not that he necessarily likes poems, I just wanted to do something romantic for him and I don't have a ton of money.

  • Ballad, I think that is the nicest way anyone has ever told me that my poem sucks and I shouldn't quit my day job in hopes of being a writer. LOL
