11 Birthday Poems For Daughters - Happy Birthday Wishes

  1. 1. Happy Birthday, Daughter

    • By Alora M. Knight
    • Published by Family Friend Poems January 2019 with permission of the Author.

    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.

    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.

  4. 3. Birthday Wish

    • By Ciana R. Lewis
    • Published by Family Friend Poems January 2019 with permission of the Author.

    This poem is written for my little sister and goddaughter, Raphaela. It was her birthday this month. She means the world to me. My poem has a rhyming scheme and uses metaphors and similes.

    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.

  5. 4. As The Years Go By

    • By Tani Montee
    • Published by Family Friend Poems January 2016 with permission of the Author.

    This poem was written over the course of my daughter's first eighteen years of life. She was my dream come true, and on her third birthday her brother was born, making her the proudest big sister in the world! I started this poem in her very first birthday card and added a new stanza every year until her latest birthday (in the same card). She recently graduated high school and plans to pursue a career in nursing. She is a nurturer and an amazing daughter! I love you, Jenna, bigger than the sky!

    in Daughter Poems

    For the first time, I saw your face,
    And in my heart you filled that space.

    I closed my eyes, and you were one,
    And my love for you had grown brighter than the sun.

    My heart skipped a beat when you turned two.
    You were getting so big! What was I to do?

    On the day that you turned three,
    I gave you a baby brother to share with me.

    It seemed like in no time you were four,
    And when you looked at me with love, my heart would soar.

    All too quickly, you turned five.
    You would soon start school and leave me behind.

    While gaining your independence, you turned six,
    But there are still things you need me to fix.

    It was not easy watching you turn seven.
    You are a gift from God, sent straight from Heaven.

    I will shed a tear as you turn eight,
    And thank the Lord for making you my fate.

    Another year gone, and now you're nine.
    It's going too fast. I wish I could turn back time.

    Time keeps moving, and you grow into ten.
    If only we could go back to one again.

    God smiles upon you as you turn eleven.
    He is saving you a place up in Heaven.

    Twelve comes so quickly, and you go to middle school.
    Your world is so different, and now I'm not so cool.

    You welcome thirteen, but my little girl I will miss.
    It was in this year that you got your first kiss.

    I hold my breath as you turn fourteen,
    A more beautiful young lady I have never seen.

    Fifteen comes and takes fourteen away,
    "Please keep her safe," to God I pray.

    At sixteen, you can finally drive,
    I wish it was still your Barbie Jeep when you were just five.

    Turning seventeen, there's not much time,
    The mountain of your youth you've almost climbed.

    Eighteen comes in the blink of an eye,
    And as you close this chapter, I'll try my best not to cry.

    I've loved you forever, or so it seems.
    I first met you when I was young, in my dreams.

    You are everything I ever hoped for and more.
    I'm excited to see what God has in store.

  7. 5. My Daughter Is A Dream Come True

    • By Karan
    • Published by Family Friend Poems December 2011 with permission of the Author.

    It's just a father's love for my only daughter who is married now and far away. I'm just kind of missing her on her birthday.

    in Birthday Poems

    My daughter is a dream come true.
    This kind of thing happens to very few.
    I feel blessed to have her love and caring
    as she is an angel always sharing.
    Her love is such that it changed my life,
    and now my little angel has become a wife.
    The time may be changing, but she is the same,
    so loving, so caring that I have no words left to frame.
    I just wish always she gets the best
    and may God keep her always blessed.
    I love you, my angel, you are the best.
    My wish is to have you as my daughter again and again
    as you filled my life with happiness and removed all the pain,
    so I wish you good luck and happiness throughout.
    My blessings are with you always without a doubt.

    • By John F. Rathbone
    • Published by Family Friend Poems January 2019 with permission of the Author.

    A Happy Birthday poem for anyone with a love for life. Willing to let all inhibitions fly away and dance in the limelight they deserve. I wrote this poem for my wife.

    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

  9. 7. Our Precious Daughter

    Happy birthday wishes from Mom and Dad to 6 year old 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

    • By Les Carter
    • Published by Family Friend Poems July 2007 with permission of the Author.

    For my Daughter on her 21st birthday.

    in Daughter Poems

    To my daughter,
    I've got something special to say,
    I wish you the happiness,
    On this your special day.

    The first time that I saw you,
    My heart was filled with love,
    But now that you're 21,
    You'll need a little shove.

    I'd never change a thing in you,
    I thank God you are so fine,
    Even when you're at your worst,
    I'm proud that you are mine.

    I know I'm not the perfect Mom,
    But it's the best that I can do,
    For every day, I thank the Lord,
    For a Daughter as special as you!

  11. 9. Daddy's Little Girl On Her 18th Birthday

    • By Angie Provost
    • Published by Family Friend Poems August 2010 with permission of the Author.

    Our only daughter is turning 18 and will soon be leaving us for the big, bad world. She is our youngest and as such leaves us happy to have raised such an amazing daughter but sad to know our house will soon be empty. She is SUCH a Daddy's girl but in the best sense of the word. She is just like her father who is the best man I know. This poem is a tribute to both of them on her 18th birthday.

    in Birthday Poems

    Once pigtails and stuffed animals
    Daddy's little girl.
    Now cell phones and first cars
    our minds in such a whirl.

    Our daughter's grown up
    turning 18 today.
    So strong and so beautiful
    trying to find your own way.

    Life is just beginning
    the world is yours to take.
    We hope we've taught you well
    and you've learned from our mistakes.

    We've loved you and protected you
    now it's time to let you fly.
    Though a woman stands before us
    forever Daddy's girl in our eyes!

  12. 10. Happy Birthday Baby Girl, Love Daddy

    • By Leah Miller
    • Published by Family Friend Poems September 2011 with permission of the Author.

    Birthday poem from a father to his 4-year-old daughter

    in Birthday Poems

    Just when he thought he had it all
    His wife, his sons, his perfect world

    Then he met his baby girl

    Her mother's eyes and daddy's smile
    A light within the sun would rival

    Today she's four, it's gone too fast
    How can I stop the clocks and make this last?

    How can such a small voice capture my soul
    and every small scratch take such a toll?

    She's raised the stakes, her brothers and I are on high alert
    praying she'll never learn how to flirt

    And if she does, it will change my whole world
    Trying to keep her MY baby girl

    Happy Birthday Baby Girl, Love Daddy

    Enjoy your day for it only comes once a year.

    in Birthday Poems

    Dance among the ribbons
    of the birthday balloons.
    Smile through the lit candles
    and sing to the classic happy tune.
    Eat the cake of wishes,
    frosted with sweet dreams of parties to come.
    Blindly swing at the flying unicorn,
    sending treasures across the lawn.
    Spin among the music and laughter
    in your perfect party dress that's brand new.
    And till next year my darling,
    happy birthday to you.
