Short Poems about Friendship

‘My Friend’ By Benidamika J. Latam

Be it laughter or tears
Your shoulder is always ready to lend.
The adventures, the memories,
All leads back to you my dear friend.
Remember, whatever we go through
Our bond will never bend.
Which is why I wish you
The happiest of birthdays
My dearest friend.

‘A Birthday Wish’ By John Imrie

Birthday greetings now I send,
Full of gladness, love, and joy,
May this year, my loving friend,
Bring thee peace without alloy;
Keep this token as a charm.
Proof of friendship ever dear,
Fain would I shield thee from harm
All this happy golden year!

‘Happy Birthday!’ By Kevin Nishmas

Happy birthday!
You may look a little older,
Sadly youth doesn’t come cheap,
So skip all those Botox parties,
And just get your beauty sleep.
Be glad you’re young at heart,
And still look as good as gold,
Too bad you’re not a millionaire,
And can’t put your looks on hold.

‘The Years Go Flying By So Fast’ By Samantha C. Ringle

The years go flying by so fast
We wonder why our youth does not last
But when I look at you I see
A younger version of what you used to be
But remember I am aging with you
And without my glasses the picture is skewed
So who cares about what has been done
As long as birthdays keep having fun!

‘B- Is For Birthday’ By Erika L. Shields

H – is for the Happiest of all days
A – is for All the wishes and praise
P – is for the Presents you’ll open with delight
P – is for the Party that will last into the night
Y – is for the Year leading up to your day

B – is for the Balloons a celebration they’ll say
I – is for the Ice cream to have with your cake
R – is for the Ribbons and decorations you’ll make
T – is for the Theme you’ll decided to throw
H – is for the Hats made with confetti and a bow
D – is for the Day you know will be fun
A – is for Another great year that is done
Y – is for Your special day.

Happy Birthday! Happy Birthday! Hip-hip hooray!

On your special day, may your soul be bold.

Cute Happy Birthday Poems for Friends

‘Age Is Just a Number’ by Kevin Nishmas

Your age is just a number,
It is really not all that big,
You have seen a few decades,
Since you were just a kid.
But you do not look your age,
You beat the middle-age spread,
Your face glows like 1,000 stars,
And you can still turn heads.

‘Today is Your Day’

Today’s your day, to shine and play,
In a world so bright, in your own special way.
Celebrate with joy, laugh and cheer,

In the melody of life, you’re our song.
So here’s to you, on this day so dear,
May it be filled with love, far and near.

With every day a sheer delight.

Wishing you the best, my dear.
May your dreams all take flight,
In your heart, may joy alight.

Funny Happy Birthday Poems for Best Friend

‘Your Zoo’ By Martin Dejnicki

A birthday should always be a joyous occasion,
Family and friends; obvious invasion.
Duplicate gifts, you don’t even like,
If you complain, might get a strike.

One simple day, placed on display,
Carefully observed for signs of decay.
Dishonest smiles, they don’t mingle in truth,
As if you were the only, losing your youth.

At such a wise age, everything seems so clear,
Excuse to celebrate, they all came for beer.
Deep down inside, you know that they care,
Your Zoo is unique; normal is rare.

‘Untitled’ by Joanna Fuchs

On your birthday, it is time to reflect,
For the passing of time leads to change. 
What once was important we leave; our priorities and goals rearrange. 
It is official; you have lived one more year.
You are birthday gifted and caked, 
But do not think you are fully mature, ‘cause you are really only half-baked!

‘Midnight Pizza’ by Kevin Nishmas

You are still a teenager at heart,
Eating in your bed is routine,
Eating in your bed is routine,
Early-bird dinners are not your style,
Midnight pizza is more your scene.
No one has a right to call you old,
You can still pass for middle-aged,
All your parts hurt but still work,
With the right nip, tuck, and dosage.
You have never looked so young,
Your head’s still hairier than your ears,
Your arms do not jiggle like Jello,
And zits still reduce you to tears.
Happy birthday!

‘Long in the Tooth’ by Kevin Nishmas

You might say we are long in the tooth,
Eating chewy food is a nightmare,
We can not sink our teeth into a steak,
Because they will just stay there.  
Our aches and pains are worse,
We feel and look like hell,
BENGAY is now our BFF,
And the best cure for old man smell.
Sleeping through the night is tricky,
It is now our Achilles’ heel,
Taking a nap anywhere helps,
Except when we are behind the wheel.
We tend to forget names and faces,
Senior moments are now our friends,
We wish people wore name tags,
But we always forget to ask them.

‘My Scooby Snack’ by Deandré Haughton

You are like a Scooby snack,
And I am your Scooby-Doo,
You are trapped in a haunted house,
And I want to save you,
I know I can find you fast,
I just have to follow the clues,
Because you are my Scooby snack,
And I am your Scooby-Doo. 
Happy Birthday to Rooooo!

‘There Are Worse Things’ by Kevin Nishmas

So what if you are getting older,
There are worse things to be,
Like a goofy, pimply teenager,
With zero self-esteem.
So what if you got a few wrinkles,
There are worse things to have,
Like the case of the twentysomethings,
And a room at Mom and Dad’s.
To me, you are simply wonderful.
Everything about you is just right
So have a happy birthday,
And let us party all night.
