Heartfelt Happy Birthday Poems for Your Loved Ones

‘When I Wish You ‘Happy Birthday” by Kevin Nishmas

When I wish you “Happy Birthday,”
There’s so much more I want to say,
Though it’s hard to utter the words,
Nothing’s going to stop me today.

When I wish you “Happy Birthday,”
What I mean is “I love you,”
You’re more than the world to me,
I’m so thankful for all you do.

When I wish you “Happy Birthday,”
It’s because you make me proud,
Now that I’ve put down these words,
I just want to scream them out loud.

‘Blessed, Loved and Carefree’ by Kevin Nishmas

Your special day comes once a year,
It’s 24 hours of celebrating you,
I’m not sure about most things,
But this much I know is true.
Your birthday is a gift of love,
Some believe it’s heaven sent,
I think it’s a gift you give yourself,
A day you do all you’ve dreamt.
So I wish you “happy birthday,”
Because you deserve to be,
Every moment all day long,
Blessed, loved and carefree.

‘Feel Your Spirit Burn’ by Kevin Nishmas

You live for the chase,
Keen to run all day long,
Free from the thought of rest,
You know you can do no wrong.
You savor each step of the way,
Bending to each twist and turn,
Your head’s deep in the game,
You can feel your spirit burn. 
Even close to the finish line,
Fierce enough to win the race,
Your heart’s set on running,
You live for the chase.

‘Every One of Your Birthdays’ by Joanna Fuchs

Every one of your birthdays
is a gift to the rest of us
who have had the pleasure
of having you in our lives
for another year.

Every one of your birthdays
brings joyful memories
of your bright smile
and your love of life.

Every one of your birthdays
reminds us of your sensitivity
and service to others,
and other delights
too numerous to name
that we are gifted with
just by knowing you.

Happy Birthday
to one in a million.

May you, and we
enjoy many more.

‘A Birthday’ by Christina Georgina Rossetti

My heart is like a singing bird
Whose nest is in a water’d shoot;
My heart is like an apple-tree
Whose boughs are bent with thickset fruit;
My heart is like a rainbow shell
That paddles in a halcyon sea;
My heart is gladder than all these
Because my love is come to me.
Raise me a dais of silk and down;
Hang it with vair and purple dyes;
Carve it in doves and pomegranates,
And peacocks with a hundred eyes;
Work it in gold and silver grapes,
In leaves and silver fleurs-de-lys;
Because the birthday of my life
Is come, my love is come to me.

‘A Precious Flower’ by Kevin Nishmas

You’re my little sister,
Younger only by birth,
Nobody is like you,
Nobody on this earth.

There’s only one you,
You are a precious flower,
The find you least expect,
The bloom that empowers.

There’s no need to change you,
You are as you should be,
You are love uncontained,
Boundless hope forever free.

You were born a blessing,
Beautiful from the start,
You’re my little sister,
Evermore in my heart.

‘Birthday Blessings’ by Howard The Motivational Poet Simon

The sun got out of bed
Swam across the ocean
Just to shine on you today
The wind climbed mountains
Endured dusty deserts
Just to blow on you today
The birds organized their orchestra
Traveled to nearby trees
Just to serenade you today
The rain descended high heavens
Bowed at your feet
Just to refresh you today
I join all of nature in wishing you
A blessed birthday today

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.

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.

Funny Happy Birthday Poems for Friends

‘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.

‘Aging Gracefully’

Another year, another cheer,
Gray hairs appear, but have no fear.
Your wisdom’s great, your spirit’s keen,
Happy Birthday, aging like fine wine, serene!

‘A Little Older, A Little Wiser’

Another year wiser, it’s clear to see,
A little more awesome, just like me.
You may not be young, but you’re still quite spry,
Happy Birthday, my friend, to the star in the sky!

‘Over the Hill’

Over the hill, but not the thrill,
In your prime, still climbing uphill.
Another candle, a little more skill,
Happy Birthday, never standing still!
