44 Happy Birthday Poems For Family - Touching Birthday Poems

A Birthday Celebration is a life affirming event. Celebrating a birthday is making a statement that your life is significant and meaningful. You are saying, my life is worth living and therefore I am celebrating that I am alive for another year. It is a time to get together with friends and family and celebrate the life that you are living. 

Birthdays may also be a time of melancholy reflection if we are not happy with our current station in life. For this reason it is good to have family and friends close to you to let you know how special you are.

    My daughter, Marsha, was born on Friday the 13th and my son on Mother's day. It should have been changed around. Although there were the teenage tangles, I have had a wonderful relationship with my daughter. She was my strength through my divorce, and I was there for her when her marriage dissolved. She's given me one grandson and 4 beautiful grandchildren. Now I'm 98 and she is the one helping me, sharing the good things in life.

    Happy Birthday, Daughter

    The Joy A Daughter Brings Her Mother

    in Birthday Poems

    Many are the joys in life.
    I'm blessed with quite a few.
    Still, most of all I'm grateful
    To have a daughter just like you.

    I remember well when you were born,
    The joy that filled my heart.
    When I first held you in my arms,
    I loved you from the start.

    It was always such a pleasure
    To see your precious life unfold.
    Learning new things every day
    Brought happiness untold.

    The child in you, I still can see.
    A glimmer here and there.
    The smile when you anticipate,
    A tugging at your hair.

    Though no one knows the future,
    What each one has in store,
    I know whatever happens
    I couldn't love you more.

    So on this special day of yours,
    Know the love that's there for you.
    Not just today, but every day,
    Will last a lifetime through.

    Happy Birthday Wishes For Sister

    in Birthday Poems

    Sister, you are a guardian angel in disguise.
    You are perceptive, intelligent, and wise,
    Always helping me through good and bad.
    You are also the greatest friend I've ever had.
    If I could have one wish, it would be
    To give you all that you have given to me.
    Though I've put our relationship through some hazy days,
    You've been the sunlight that has shone in so many ways.
    Through my ups and downs, right by me you stood,
    And you gave me your hand whenever you could.
    Though I am sure my mistakes will not end here,
    You're always there to keep me away from my fears.
    I don't doubt some of your headaches are from me.
    With all the times you lecture and tease,
    I stand there upset and displeased.
    Though I tell you I can't stand you,
    You come back with, "That's not true."
    We've had our fights,
    Which lead to sleepless nights,
    But in the end, I thank you so much.
    My appreciation for you has no end.
    You will always be my sister and my friend.

    Happy Birthday, Sister!

    Poem For Mom's Birthday

    in Birthday Poems

    You brighten up my life
    With tender love and care.
    When I reach out,
    You're always there.

    You're someone I can count on
    When I need a helping hand.
    You're warm and loving;
    You always understand.

    I'm so thankful to have
    A mom like you.
    There is no other
    Who could fill your shoes.

    I always took for granted
    That you were there for me
    And all the things you did,
    But now I see.

    You're such a good example
    Of what a mom should be.
    We always get along so well,
    Even when we disagree.

    You're so patient
    And understanding.
    You don't ask for anything.
    You're outstanding.

    You're so quick to give
    And such a joy to be around.
    You're such a good person.
    You deserve a special crown.

    You have a good heart.
    You're honest and true.
    You're the best mother,
    And I really love you.

    A Friend For Life

    Birthday Poem For Husband

    in Birthday Poems

    Out of all the blessings
    Life has bestowed on me,
    You are the loveliest of all -
    This is not hard to see.

    Even with the ups and downs,
    The happiness and hardship,
    Through challenges and success,
    We maintained our friendship.

    And with each passing day,
    I understand and realize
    Some things are meant to be
    When I look in your eyes.

    And this is my wish not just for your birthday.
    May God bless you in every step of the way.

    Happy Birthday, Super Star Sister

    Birthday Greetings For My Sister

    in Birthday Poems

    From the day you were born I've watched you grow
    Into the nicest person one could know.
    Love changes everything, words oh so true.
    My world changed the moment I first held you.

    A baby sister who captured my heart,
    Nothing and no one could tear us apart.
    That goes for all those who love you to bits,
    Especially your children and grandkids.

    So bouncy and lively, zesty and bright,
    That's the way you go on sailing through life.
    You light up a room, soon as you appear.
    A gift to the world, so precious and dear.

    May this special day and all days after
    Be filled with abundant love and laughter.
    Every moment a moment to treasure
    For a sister who brings so much pleasure.

    Never change from the woman that you are.
    To us sisters, you are a "Super Star."

    Birthday Wishes For A Little Girl

    in Birthday Poems

    A cake with a lit candle,
    Presents with ribbons and bows,
    A bike with pink, glittery handles,
    A little girl who grows and grows.

    What will you wish for, my love,
    On this, your very special day?
    Send your wish to God above.
    It will come true if you pray.

    As you blow out the candle, my dear,
    I'll make a wish for you too.
    I'll whisper it so you won't hear,
    That way I know it will come true.

    My wish for you is like sunshine,
    Warm, cheery, and full of delight,
    My wish is the starlight, soothing and fine,
    Which lights up the dark, dreary night.

    May God follow you always,
    May the path always be clear,
    And may you have a happy birthday
    This day and all through the years.

    Inspirational Birthday Wishes

    in Birthday Poems

    Each year our birthday forces us to grow
    Into the person whom we have yet to know
    With circumstances that hopefully have made us wise
    When we learn from our multitude of mistakes and tries.

    To take a long look at these years gone past
    To really reflect on how time travels fast
    To know that every day that each of us lives
    Is a great gift from God that He lovingly gives.

    So as you celebrate another passing year again
    On this day that marks the beginning of the moment when
    You entered this world for a purposeful plan
    Just remember your worth doesn't come from man.

    Your worth comes from our Creator who made you unique
    Who gave you knowledge and words to speak
    Who doesn't care about a past success or failure
    But only cares about your heart that His presence makes pure.

    False paths, lost dreams, wrong choices, it's true
    Fills your past as well as everyone else's, too
    There may be those lost memories that hinder your day
    But with God in your mind the regrets soon melt away.

    Cherish this day and who you're growing to be
    This special person that all of us already see
    Embrace this coming year and live each day anew
    By becoming the excellent one God created in you.

    Mother To Son Birthday Wishes

    in Birthday Poems

    16 year ago today
    They placed you in my arms
    I became a mother
    Bewitched by all your charms

    You learned to walk, to read
    Each day brought something new
    No more my little boy
    You hurt, I cried, you grew

    Sometimes you didn't need me
    didn't want to hold my hand
    Your independence made you proud
    But me a little sad

    I blinked my eyes, I turned around
    your almost grown I see
    Why did it go so fast?
    A few more moments please

    In your struggle to be free
    Sometimes we don't get along
    But I'm always on your side
    I'll always be your mom

    You can't stop time, can't hold it back
    Can't stop the ocean's tide
    The good person that you are
    Fills my heart with pride

    In my eyes there is no one like you
    Can't wait to see what you'll become
    My pride and joy, I love you
    Happy birthday to my son

    Thanking The Lord For Son

    in Birthday Poems

    I'd like to thank the Lord above,
    for this little life He's given to me.
    Without His gift of love,
    your birth would never be.

    I'd like to thank the Lord above
    for what His gift has meant.
    Just watching you grow up
    has made my heart content.

    I'd like to thank the Lord above
    for instilling in you a kind heart.
    You have grown into a loving man.
    You're witty, thoughtful, and smart.

    And on your blessed birthday, son,

    I wrote this for my son on his birthday. He was only eight then and I don't know if he understood the depth of my poem. But he reached out to hug me and said, "Nice." I forgot about the poem after that. He turned 15 last year, and when we were talking about birthday gifts one day, he shared that his most memorable birthday gift was the poem I had written for him when he was little. Thankfully I was able to find the card that I had given him. I hope the soul of my poem resonates with you.

    I've Always Loved You, Son

    in Birthday Poems

    From the moment I looked into your eyes,
    I knew that I was never going to be the same again.
    You held my gaze, not once looking away
    as you reached out to grip my finger.

    I knew then that I would never let you go.
    I have fallen in and out of love many times,
    but I could never fall out of love with you.

    You, my dear, were part of me before
    I knew you by your name.

    My mother raised 5 of us kids almost on her own. Our father was an alcoholic and she struggled to raise us. We didn't realize what a difficult time she had until we were older and had children of our own. I wrote this on her 80th birthday to honor her dedication to us.

    Happy Birthday To The Queen Of Our Hearts

    Our Mother's 80th Birthday

    in Birthday Poems

    Poems are written every day for moms across the earth.
    Stories, songs, and ballads, all trying to tell her worth,

    How every day she battled, the odds against her stacked,
    Never giving up on us and never looking back.

    There was no time for wishing or waiting for a dream.
    Faces to wash, meals to cook, clothes that needed cleaned.

    She never feels that she's been cheated of a life to call her own.
    Smiles that come from beneath her feet is where her heart is drawn

    Sometimes we saw a worried look or heard a desperate prayer,
    But she never burdened her little ones with even a hint of care.

    Our table was full, our beds were warm, clothes upon our back.
    We always had just what we needed; we never knew a lack.

    The outside world might raise a brow and doubt that we'd survive,
    But mom was sure of her love for us, and that love kept us alive.

    She could've chosen a different path, the road to please herself.
    Instead she took the high road, and her kids became her wealth.

    Investing in us every day, she seemed so brave and strong,
    But only God knew the tears she cried when she was all alone.

    He heard her every prayer and watched as time went by.
    He traded her ashes for beauty and lifted her head up high.

    It's no wonder that we love her so unlike any other.
    Happy Birthday to the queen of our hearts, our dear, precious Mother.

    My husband and I are apart because he's in Iraq with the military. Like many couples we find that supporting each other emotionally, spiritually, and daily through life is sometimes challenging when we live under the same roof; and always challenging when we're thousands of miles apart. We both need different types of support now. With prayers and my wish for him in this poem I send him strength and love.

    Our Precious Daughter

    Happy Birthday Wishes For Daughter

    in Birthday Poems

    We celebrate your birthday, as you turn six today,
    but we have got the gift, just the perfect gift,
    that on this very special day, God gave away,
    a gift of love from up above, so unique and so rare

    God has specially made you to the very tip of your nose,
    as precious as a flower, as tender as a rose.
    Fulfilled and blessed our lives we have and all because of you,
    as sweet as honey, so innocent and pure

    The twinkle of your eyes is brighter than any star,
    the smiles you leave behind keep our days bright,
    though our laps you have outgrown,
    you will never outgrow our hearts

    We watch and pray as you grow,
    in love and in faith, in beauty and in grace,
    you bring us joy and pure delight,
    just to gaze upon your lovely face

    Our hearts you keep warm and are with you wherever you may go,
    and as you go on life's journey, only happiness may you find,
    you are the joyful moments through our sorrow,
    you are our hope and promise of our tomorrow

    'cause you are our pride, our unconditional love we pledge,
    'cause you are our joy, our undivided bond we cherish,
    'cause you are our sunshine, our embrace is your shield through the rain,
    'cause you are our little girl, our hugs and kissed will take away your pain

    We asked God for a flower and He gave us a bouquet
    we asked God for a minute and He gave us a day
    we prayed to God for true love and He gave us that too
    we prayed to God for an angel and He gave us you

    May God bless you dear angel
    especially on this day, that marks your birth,
    for all the special ways you bring
    a bit of heaven into our world

    May God bless you, Today, Tomorrow and Always
    in Peace in Health in Happiness and in Love

    With Love,
    Mum and Dad

    Little Boys

    • By Anuradha Dev
    • Published: February 2014

    in Birthday Poems

    Little boys
    Everyone said Boys are difficult.
    They are alien creatures,
    Difficult to manage
    And impossible to understand.
    Well I agree.
    They are like a ball,
    Can't stay still.
    They give you mini heart attacks
    Each time they go out and get hurt.
    They are naughty,
    They are noisy,
    They are wild!
    But nobody told me
    How I would feel,
    When this bundle of energy
    Would come running
    And smother me with their force.
    Or when this stubborn creature
    Sneaks up from behind,
    kiss you and run away laughing.
    Or when he would say innocently
    "mumma when I grow up
    I'll marry you!"
    Little boys are like rain,
    rain that soaks you up with
    Their unconditional love.
    Yes they are difficult!
    But isn't it worth it
    When they cuddle with you
    And go to sleep,
    Making you feel like the
    most important person in their lives?
    They say boys are yours
    Until they get married.
    Having them for a quarter of a century,
    Isn't it better than not having that love at all!
    To my bundle of joy and energy
    Happy birthday!

    Pillar Of A Man

    Birthday Wishes To Dad

    in Birthday Poems

    Work hard yet be humble,
    share all that you have
    Maybe the most important of many lessons,
    that I have learned from my dad.

    Protect and honor your family,
    no matter what the cost
    A battle for your family
    is a battle that can't be lost.

    Take a stand for things that matter,
    and always keep your head held up high.
    Embrace those things close to your heart,
    and yes, sometimes men do cry.

    These lessons in life can not be taught,
    they must be observed.
    Happy birthday dad you have taught me a lot,
    and I love you for what I have learned.

    Though you cannot see me,

    Fourteen birthdays have passed
    Since the day I died,
    But for each one
    I've been right by your side.

    I've helped you blow out candles
    And heard the wishes that you make.
    I've watched you open up each gift
    And seen you eat your birthday cake.

    I've watched you grow into a man
    As the years have passed by, son.
    And I am so proud of you
    For all that you have done.

    You deserve the very best.
    May all your dreams come true.

    As my birthday gift to you.

    Enjoy Your Special Day

    in Birthday Poems

    Birthday girl, birthday girl,
    Let's seize the day, dance and twirl

    Jump up high and touch the sky
    Let laughter soar and silliness fly

    Stomp atop tables, leap and fling
    Blare out your favourites and with them sing

    Shout songs out loud on your special day
    Rejoicing with wishes from near and far away

    Skip to the beat of love flowing to you
    Candles blowing memories a whole life through

    Grab the time now, hug, kiss, squeeze, charge to celebrate
    Thank you for sharing this day, for it's you that makes it great

    I once missed my cousin Julie's birthday. It wasn't until the last minute I remembered, but the only card I had didn't have a verse, so I had to write my own. She loved it.

    Missed Birthday

    Birthday Wishes To Last The Whole Year

    in Birthday Poems

    I'm so sorry I missed your birthday.
    A special day, I know it's true.
    But birthdays are only here one day,
    And I love you the whole year through.

    Birthday cards are only pieces of paper,
    Verses written by someone we never knew.
    How could they ever truly explain
    All the feelings I have for you?

    So I've bought a card without any verse
    As I wanted to write one of my own
    To let you know what you really mean to me
    And not words from someone unknown.

    Yes, birthday cards are just pieces of paper
    That we read then just put away,
    But my love for you is forever,
    And forever means now and always.

    Sister Beryl, I do believe words from your own heart mean so much more. They are priceless.
