Celebrating five years of marriage is a milestone and should be treated as such. Roses and chocolates are great, but your wife wants to know that you still love her as much as you did the day you married her. So tell her that. Tell her that if you had it to do all over again, you'd walk down that aisle and say "I do" without a moment's hesitation. Tell her how much she means and how important your life together is to you.

Your Own Words
Describe the day you first met her, in as much detail as possible. Tell her not only what you remember --- what she was wearing, what you talked about, the smell of the perfume she was wearing --- but how she made you feel. Did your heart skip a beat when you first saw her enter the room? Could you not stop thinking about her until the next time you'd see her again? Tell her these things.
"Happy marriages begin when we marry the one we love, and they blossom when we love the one we married." There are many famous quotes about love and marriage --- such as this one is from humorist Sam Levenson --- which you could repeat to mark the occasion. French author Andre Marouis said, "A happy marriage is a long conversation which always seems too short." Aristotle is credited with "Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies." Browsing through the poetry section of your library will lead to plenty of other appropriate quotes that you can say to your wife.
In addition to quotes about love and marriage, you might consider reading her a poem that captures how you feel about your anniversary. You should easily be able to find a book of poetry celebrating love at your local library or bookstore, but, if you're talented with the written word, it would mean even more to her if you wrote one yourself. Just speak from the heart and don't worry if it's not perfect. Your wife will appreciate the effort.
