Happy Birthday Poems

A birthday can be seen as a serious or joyful time depending on one's age and one's attitude towards life. Another year has passed and we look back on failures and successes. We think about our goals for the future and reflect on the past year. These are all thoughts that may came up on a birthday, but the main thing is to use a birthday as an opportunity to celebrate life and be joyful for the chance to be with friends and family.

  1. 1. Happy Birthday, Daughter

    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.

    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.

  6. 4. Happy Birthday, Far Away Friend

    This poem is about a friend I've spent so much time with ever since we were born. We went to so many places together, but that stopped when her parents had an argument with members in our church. Because of that, we won't be able to see each other anymore. When she left, I had a really hard time living without her, because she was the person I spent most of my time with. I miss her so much, and I know she feels the same way about me, so I dedicate this poem to her.

    Dear friend, I want to wish you a splendid happy birthday.
    We don't see each other anymore, but I hope everything is okay.
    You're growing to become the intelligent woman I know you can be.
    I'm so fortunate to have a friend like you who's gentle, loving, and sweet.

    • By Vashni Kelly
    • Published: January 2019

    I created this poem to give myself a small challenge as most of my poems are usually dark and touch on taboo subjects. I wanted to create something beautifully light and to the point, which I feel I have done with this specific poem.

    The world was blessed with your beauty on this very special day.
    Thank you for being so truly great with the amazing personality you portray.

    Your grace cannot be matched as it's unique in every way.

  16. 13. Special Day

    I wrote this poem 35 years ago to my best friend. Who would've guessed that we would still be as close today as back then? We don't see each other often these days, but when we do, it is as if we just spoke to one another the day before. It may take a few hours to play catch-up, but this friendship has lasted because we still care about each other and what happens in each other's lives. There is a trust and a bond that will forever keep us connected, and I know that she feels the same.

    Here it is,
    Your special day,
    So I thought I'd take
    This time to say

    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.

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

  23. 20. Love And Hugs

    I began writing poetry in middle age. For about 5 years I lived aboard a yacht in remote areas of Australia, mostly in the Torres Strait. We had intermittent TV and radio signal depending on the anchorage, and I began writing poems for family and friends for special occasions. My poems are generally comic and whimsical in tone and inspired by actual events.

    A bunch of flowers,
    A homemade cake,
    That special gift,
    A birthday steak.
