Poems To Say Thank You

Updated on August 1, 2015

Thank You Poems To Show Your Appreciation

Sometimes, when others have done us a favor, it is only right that we convey our thanks and gratitude. There are various ways you can do so and one popular method is to send a thank you poem.

Many people choose to send a gift instead when they want to say thank you but if you want to make it more personalized, the gift should also include a thank you poem to make known your sincere appreciation for a good deed done.

Below are a few thank you poems for you to browse through that you can include in your note or gift. Feel free to copy them for your own personal use.


Short Thank You Poems

A Quick Way Of Saying Thanks

Thank you poems need not be long and flowery. Sometimes, a short thank you poem is more than adequate, especially when you just want to fit a few words in a card. And if you want to keep things light and rather than being overly dramatic, short thank you poems are the way to go.

Thanks For Giving A Hand

You came to my aid unplanned

And expect nothing in demand

But I want you to understand

That I'm thankful for your helping hand.

Below is another short thank you poem that is straight to the point. Use it if you are looking for something short and simple.

My Gratitude

Thank you I have to say

For helping me the other day

So, gratitude I have to convey

Without further delay!

The two short thank you poems above will be suitable to accompany a gift. If you feel you should register your appreciation but don't want to overdo it, a gift basket would be just nice. A gift basket can demonstrate your thoughtfulness while making the person feels appreciated. Some people may think a gift basket is a little impersonal but the key is to fill the right things in it!

Poems To Say Thank You To A Friend

For A Friend That Has Stood By You

If there was a friend who has given you all the emotional support you need when you were down, a thank you poem is certainly in order. It is not often that we can find a friend who would share our burden and be there for us. So, if you have such a selfless friend, do reward him or her with this thank you poem.

Thank You, My Friend

I appreciate your kindness

As well as your thoughtfulness

Both of which are priceless

During my moments of darkness.

Now in a spirit of cheerfulness

I thank you in eagerness

Let life treat you with gentleness

For you have been truly selfless.

People tend to say that a good friend will understand and gifts are not necessary for lasting friendship. Nevertheless, a gift does go a long way to make someone feel appreciated as a friend. Figurines are some of those meaningful friendship gifts that you can give on certain occasions like when you need to say thank you to someone who cares.

A Sincere Thanks

Kindness you have displayed

My fears you have allayed

When I was truly dismayed

For my happiness you prayed

Thanks must now be conveyed

For the compassion that you portrayed.

Another Free Thank You Poem

Saying Thank You When A Person Cares

Not everyone will offer to help willingly when they have their own lives to lead and problems to deal with. But if someone you know has gone out of his or her way to help you out, it is only proper that you convey your thanks either through a thank you poem or note.

Just To Say Thanks

A thank you note is necessary

When help has been rendered unselfishly

You may have your own difficulty

But you still offer to help me willingly

What more can I say, really

Except thank you for your generosity.

Well, there are certainly many ways to say thank you. But most importantly, how you word your message and express your thanks will have a bearing on how others perceive your depth of sincerity and acknowledgement. If you truly want the recipient to feel touched and honored by your gratitude, there are various books out there to show you how.

      Threre is in friendship just a bit or Eden,

      harboring our early innocence,

      acting out of pleasure in our pleasure,

      not calculating cost or recompense,

      knowing the abundance that we breed in..

      Your friendship is a book that i may read in,

      opening a truth i cannot measure,

      unless it be with signs or sacraments..
