Poem on Friendship by: Amit
The best of friends,
Can change a frown,
Into a smile,
When you feel down.

The best of friends,
Will understand,
Your little trials,
And lend a hand.

The best of friends,
Will always share,
Your secret dreams,
Because they care.

The best of friends,
Worth more than gold,
Give all the love,
A heart can hold.

Poem on Friendship by: Manjusha
A Best Friend!
A friend that really cares,
All my secrets I can share!
There when i need a hand!
There to understand!
When I cry,
She will hold!
If I am away,
She will call me day by day!
If I need her at all,
She'll be there to stand tall!
Anything I say will be heard,
She will listen word by word!
If I am late,
She will open the gate!
As she looks in my eyes,
The sparkle she realizes!
She is the one that cares,
And the one that's there!
That's a best Friend!!

Poem on Friendship by: Abhilash
Friends Forever!
Written with a pen
If you are my friend, Please answer this:
Are we friends or are we not?
You told me once, but I forgot.
So tell me now and tell me true,
So I can say, I am here for you.
Of all the friends I've ever met,
You're the one I won't forget.
And if I die before you do,
I'll go to Heaven
And wait for you………….

................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................



Poem on Friendship by: Ravee
You're a friend of mine
Striking out?
Well count me in
I'm gonna stand right by your side through thick or thin.
Ain't no doubt
Gonna win
A walk through hell ain't bad compared to where we've been.

Oh! you can depend on me
Over and over...
Know that I intend to be the one who always makes you laugh until you cry,
and you can call on me until the day you die.

Years may come and go
Here's one thing I know
All my life,
You're a friend of mine.
What if mountains fall?
Nothin' left at all!
I'll be fine
Becoz you're a friend of mine.

Poem on Friendship by: Hariharan S
Factually, one of the best moments
Remaining in my heart of hearts
Inevitably none other than you
Evident from my action towards thou
Need no proof for the greatest ship
Destined to be your greatest friend in this friend-ship.

First to wish you on your birthday
Relishing every moment with you that day
Ignoring the changes in your moods
Expecting you to provide me the food
Never again will we ever part
Despite everything that happened in the past.

Forget not the moments that we relish
Round and round the rose bush
Igniting the light of our great love
Enough to burn the field we plough
Not again should we ever part
Death will only tear us apart

................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................



Poem on Friendship by: Vijaydeep Sharma
If you're lonely,
And need a friend,
And troubles seem like
They never end,
Just remember to keep the Faith,
And Love will be there to Light the Way.

Anytime you need a friend,
I will be here.
You'll never be alone again,
So don't you fear.
Even if you're miles away,
I'm by your side.
So don't you ever be lonely.
Love will make it alright.

When the shadows are closing in,
And your Spirit diminishing,
Just remember you're not alone,
And Love will be there,
To Guide you Home.

Poem on Friendship by: Prem Kumar N
Friendship is not just a word,
Friendship is not at all about spending time,
Friendship is not an expectation,
Unfortunately it cannot be defined,
& that is known as FRIENDSHIP.

................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................



Poem on Friendship by: Aryan
Dear Friend,

When I ask you a flower,
You give me a bouquet.
When I ask you a stone,
You give me a statue.
When I ask you a feather,
You give me a peacock.

My friend told me: Are you really deaf?
And I answered : Of course, I am deaf when my friend needs my eyes for herself. :-)

Poem on Friendship by: Anpurna
A friend is somebody
Who knows you and likes you
Exactly the way that you are...

Someone who's special
And so close in thought
That no distance can ever seem far.

A friend understands you without any words,
Stands by you when nothing goes right...
And willingly talks over problems with you
Till they somehow just vanish from sight.

And whether you're neighbors or live miles apart,
A word from a friend gives a lift
To your heart and spirit that shows you once more
Why friendship is life's dearest gift!

................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................



Poem on Friendship by: William Shakespeare
When to the session of sweet silent thought
I summon up remembrance of things past,
I sigh the lack of many a thing I sought,
And with old woes new wail my dear time's waste:
Then can I drown an eye, unused to flow,
For precious friends hid in deathšs dateless night,
And weep afresh love's long since cancelled woe,
And moan the expense of many a vanishšd sight:
Then can I grieve at grievances foregone,
And heavily from woe to woe tell o'er
The sad account of fore-bemoaned moan,
Which I new pay as if not paid before.
But if the while I think on thee, dear friend,
All losses are restored and sorrows end.

Poem on Friendship by: Unknown
Could we but draw back the curtain,
That surrounds each others lives,
See the naked heart and spirit;
Know what spur the action gives;
Often we would find it better,
Purer then we think we would.
We would love each other better,
If we only understood.

Poem on Friendship by: Andrea
There's lots of things
With which I'm blessed,
My problems have been few,
But of all, this one's the best:
To have a friend like you.
In times of trouble
Friends will say,
"Just ask, I'll help you through it."
But you don't wait for me to ask,
You just get up and do it!
And I can think
of nothing more
That I could wisely do,
Than know a friend,
And be a friend,
And have a friend like you.

Poem on Friendship by: H. W. Longfellow
I shot an arrow into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For, so swiftly it flew, the sight
Could not follow it in its flight.
I breathed a song into the air,
It fell to earth, I knew not where;
For who has sight so keen and strong,
That it can follow the flight of song?
Long, long afterward, in an oak
I found the arrow, still unbroke;
And the song, from beginning to end,
I found again in the heart of a friend.

Poem on Friendship by: William Shakespeare
Blow, Blow, thou winter wind!
Thou art not so unkind
As man's ingratitude
Thy tooth is not so keen
Because thou art not seen.
Although thy breath be rude.
Heigh ho! sing, heigh ho! unto the green holly;
Most friendship is feigning most loving mere folly.
Then, heigh ho, the holly!
This life is most jolly.

Freeze, freeze, thou bitter sky,
That dost not bite so ngh
As benefits forgot:
Though thou the watters warp,
Thy sting is not so sharp
As friend remembered not.
Heigh-ho! sing heigh-ho! unto the green holly:
Most friendship is feigning, most love mere folly:
Then heigh-ho, the holly!
This life is most Jolly.

Poem on Friendship by: William Shakespeare
When my love swears that she is made of truth
I do believe her though I know she lies,
That she might think me some untutored youth
Unlearned in the world's false subtleties.
Thus vainly thinking that she thinks me young,
Although she knows my days are past the best,
Simply I credit her false-speaking tongue;
On both sides thus is simple truth suppressed.
But wherefore says she not she is unjust,
And wherefore say not I that I am old?
O, love's best habit is in seeming trust,
And age in love loves not to have years told.
Therefore I lie with her, and she with me,
And in our faults by lies we flattered be.

Poem on Friendship by: William Shakespeare
Full many a glorious morning have I see
Flatter the mountain-tops with sovereign eye,
Kissing with golden face the meadows green,
Gilding pale streams with heavenly alchemy;
Anon permit the basest clouds to ride
With ugly rack on his celestial face,
And from the forlorn world his visage hide,
Stealing unseen to west with this disgrace:
Even so my sun one early morn did shine
With all-triumphant splendour on my brow;
But out, alack! He was but one hour mine;
The region cloud hath mask'd him from me now.
Yet him for this my love no whit disdaineth;
Suns of the world may stain when heaven's sun staineth.

Poem on Friendship Contributed by: Umakant Gupta
Everyone Should Have A Friend Like You
Everyone should have a friend like you
You are so much fun to be with
And you are such a good person
You crack me up with laughter
And touch my heart with your kindness
You have a wonderful ability
To know when to offer advice
And when to sit in quiet support
Time after time
You've come to my rescue
And brightened so many of my routine days
And time after time
I've realized how fortunate
I am that my life includes you
I really do believe that
Everybody should have a friend like you
But so far it looks like
You are one of a kind!

You could title this birthday message, "For (name) on his/her (number of years) birthday. Attach this rhyming poem to the birthday gift to make it extra special.

Birthday Blessings

Instead of counting candles,
Or tallying the years,
Contemplate your blessings now,
As your birthday nears.

Consider special people
Who love you, and who care,
And others who've enriched your life
Just by being there.

Think about the memories
Passing years can never mar,
Experiences great and small
That have made you who you are.

Another year is a happy gift,
So cut your cake, and say,
"Instead of counting birthdays,
I count blessings every day!"

Happy Birthday, Special Treasure

God gave a gift to the world when you were born—
a person who loves, who cares,
who sees a person's need and fills it,
who encourages and lifts people up,
who spends energy on others
rather than herself,
someone who touches each life she enters,
and makes a difference in the world,
because ripples of kindness flow outward
as each person you have touched, touches others.
Your birthday deserves to be a national holiday,
because you are a special treasure
for all that you've done.
May the love you have shown to others
return to you, multiplied.
I wish you the happiest of birthdays,
and many, many more,
so that others have time to appreciate you
as much as I do.

Till they're flying off the chart!

Is a guy who makes you laugh having a birthday? Send him this birthday poem. I wrote this for my husband, Karl.

Funny Guy

My funny guy, when I look at you,
Making faces, as you do,
To make me giggle, and keep me happy,
When I'm feeling down or sad or crappy,
I see someone who's man enough
To just be silly, instead of tough
To give me gladness, bliss and joy,
That's my man; that's my big boy.

Happy birthday to the man
Who makes me laugh, because he can.

Front of the Line

When I think of exceptional people I know,
You're right at the front of the line.
It's not for your power or status or wealth;

When I want to see someone who’s special and fun,
I don't have to think very hard,
For one of the nicest people I know
I can find in my own backyard.

You're a person I really respect and admire!

This birthday poem is designed for one older man to send to another. I said to Karl, "Honey," women send most of the cards, and the age factor really limits the audience for this poem." Here it is anyway, for those of you to whom it applies. Does this belong on the funny poems page? Let me know.

Happy Birthday, Old Friend

Congratulations to you, my old friend,
Birthday wishes to you, I send.
You look good for your age, I could say,
But you look good to me any day.

When I look in the mirror, I sigh,
'Cause I know the mirror doesn't lie.
You're aging like me, so you see
You're getting to be an old guy.

By Karl Fuchs

Birthday poems are not always rhyming poems. This birthday message in free verse expresses warm feelings toward the birthday person.

Best Birthday

It's your birthday...
and I'm thinking how glad I am
that you were born.
You have given me so much--
supported me, encouraged me,
cared for me; I didn't even need to ask.
I celebrate your wonderful self!
I am in awe of your boundless generosity,
your infinite kindness--that gentle inner glow
that you so freely use to warm my life.
Your birthday is as much a celebration for me
as it is for you, maybe more,
and I wish for you the best of birthdays,
the best one ever.
May each birthday be better than the last.
Most of all, I hope you will always be
As happy as you have made me.

By Joanna Fuchs

Some things get better with time so they say;
You follow that rule, as my friend, day by day.

I hope you’ll be sharing more birthdays with me!

Of good cheer she's the absolute queen!

Birthday Star

I have two wonders in my in my life
And one is my daughter!
If she would have cost me a fortune,
She'd be a bargain, I’d have bought her! 

Now, as we get older
And the birthdays go by,
I love her more
Than there are stars in the sky. 

She is the part of my living
That helps me feel, I did fine.
And I’ll cherish that feeling,
in my heart, for all of my time. 

So happy birthday,
my daughter, so dear
I wish you more happiness
With each passing year.

Brother Birthday Poem

A brother is a good thing to have, so let's not forget a brother birthday verse!

Birthday Poem For Brother

I'm fortunate, and I'm glad
I got you for my brother;
Even if I had the chance,
I wouldn't pick another.

I'm happy you're in my life;
You're my winner, come what may.
May your birthday wishes come true
On your very special day.

Granddaughter Birthday Poem

You can customize this granddaughter birthday poem by substituting something like "pretty brown hair" for "pretty blond curls."

Special Granddaughter

There's someone we love,
Our special granddaughter;
She's sweet and she's nice,
Just like Dad and Mom taught her.

She's got a really cute smile
And pretty blond curls;
She's a wonderful person,
The best of all girls.

We're so glad she's ours;
We rejoice every day;
She's our angel granddaughter,
And we just want to say...

Happy Birthday (Name)!

Baby's First Birthday Poem

Birthday messages can be specific to someone's age. Here's a first birthday poem for baby.

Baby's First Birthday

It's your very first birthday, baby,
One candle on your cake;
Proud parents stare in wonder
At each new move you make.

We join in celebration,
As this special date arrives,
For baby has brought pleasure
Into all our lives.

We look forward now to seeing
How you progress and grow,
From the cute and tiny infant
You were one year ago.

So dig into your icing;
Enjoy your presents, too.
The reason for this day
Is a special person--you!

By Joanna Fuchs

50th Birthday Poem

Birthday greetings for that big half century mark are popular. This 50th birthday poem celebrates that event.

The Big Five-Oh

So you are finally fifty;
Happy birthday on the big Five-Oh.
I guess you could fill a great big book
With everything you know.

A whole half century of living
Is nothing to sneeze about,
So if you're a little patched and worn,
Don't you dare frown or pout.

Ignore things that make you feel old;
It's really great to be fifty.
You're smart, attractive and good company,
And I still think you're nifty!

By Joanna Fuchs

There's an over-the-hill 40th birthday poem
on the Funny Birthday Poems page.

There are lots of searches for a birthday prayer, so I wrote a birthday poem that is also a birthday blessing. If the person is "him," change "her" to "him."

A Birthday Prayer

Her birthday comes but once a year;
Lord, fill her day with joy and cheer;
This person who's so very dear,
Take care of her and keep her near.

Dear Lord in heaven, bless this day;
Protect this loved one, come what may;
Love her in your special way;
In Jesus' precious name I pray.
Amen.

Time Goes By
Poet: Kate Summers, © 2017

The years go by so fast
It seems like only yesterday
We had a birthday splash
And now a full year has again gone past.

Time goes by and then we see
How the years just seem to fly by
I know that you agree with me
It is a fact of life we can't deny

So live this year
Be all that you can be
As we will turn around
And next year will be here.



The Passing Years

Poet: Edward Tuck

Age is a quality of mind:
If you have left your dreams behind,
If hope is lost,
If you no longer look ahead,
If your ambition's fires are dead,
Then you are old.

But if from life you take the best
And if in life you keep the jest,
If love you hold,
No matter how the years go by,
No matter how the birthdays fly,
You are not old.


Here Is A Wish
Poet: John McLeod

Here is a wish that says:
Warm, happy hours be yours
Shadows are of passing note
But healing laughter cures.
Be, therefore, ever joyful, Friend,
And walk on gladsome feet
Towards tomorrow's brand new dawn
And promise sweet!


Hard To Believe
Poet: Kate Summers, © 2017

It's hard to believe you are celebrating another birthday
It was only yesterday your life was full of play
Now here you are with accomplishments in life
And your attitude is one without strife
We are so proud of you
We wish you success in all you do.
So on this day we wish you well
We think you are special and oh, how swell!


As I Grow Old
Poet: Arnold West

God, keep my heart attuned to laughter
when youth is done;
when all the days are gray days, coming after
The warmth, the sun.
God keep me then from bitterness, from
grieving,
When life seems cold;
God keep me always loving and believing
As I grow old.



Inspirational Prayers


Another Year
Poet: Theodore W. Higginsworth © 2017

Another birthday, another year
May you have problems that disappear
May you have health
And a bit of wealth
May you share
With those who care
May the coming year
Be one of good cheer.



Age Is Not To Be Feared
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer© 2017

Another birthday, another year
Remember though that age is not to be feared
You are just achieving your prime
Here's to your health and living a long time

As they say, be happy, don't worry
Enjoy your life and don't be in a hurry
We take this opportunity to wish you
Happiness in all you do.

We appreciate your caring
Your always willingness for sharing
Thank you, for being you
We love you and all you do.



Age


The Happiest Age
Poet: Wilhelmina Stitch

What age is happiest?
Had you asked me,
I would have made this plea:
the Now is best.

What joy to live with zest each newborn day;
and from the Moment wrest what Life will give away.
The Past is but a guest who came and went,
and left this one behest: to be content.

Think how To-day is blest!
We've eyes to see Nature in Beauty drest for you, for me.
What matter that the crest of Youth is past.
Youth lives within the breast with joys that last.
The will to do our best, and hands for giving.
Oh! Now's the happiest, best time for living!

What age is happiest?
Oh! hear my vow, for I have put the test -
the happiest's Now.
Sweet sighs and kindly jest for warmth and cheer;
and Love's most high bequest to crown the year.



Aging
Poet: Greta Zwaan, © 2015

I think of aging as a gift, a privilege to enjoy,
Not as space or empty time that’s easy to destroy.
Years of toil are history now, your strength is almost spent,
But all the days still left to you are surely heaven sent.

You now have time to reminisce, to think of years gone by;
Remembering all the things you've done and now you wonder "Why?"
You stop and think and want to know why youth so quickly flew,
Time then was brief, just fleeting by; so much left up to you.

And now your family's grown and gone, they're scattered, far away;
And as you ponder on the past you feel alone each day.
But I know one sweet promise to those who are God's own,
“I’ll always walk beside you, you’re never left alone."

Your prayers aren't left unanswered, there's still much you can do;
Consider interceding for folks who need Him too.
When folks feel lost and lonely, greet them with a smile,
And give them the assurance that life is still worthwhile.

You're still here for a reason, so do the best you can;
You have God-given talents that fit into His plan.


Happy Birthday Poems

Thinking Of You

We thank God above
As He sent us a special treasure.

May this year bring you
Success and happiness in all you do
A very Happy Birthday

21st Birthday Quotes plus 30th, 40th, 50th


A Very Happy Birthday
Poet: Kate Summers, © 2017

A very Happy Birthday to you
Don't let your age make you feel blue
Another year older and wiser you are
You should feel like a shining star.

Age is just a number you see
What's important is for you to be
Loving and living each day with glee
And celebrating for all to see.

So be happy with this special day
We hope this card which is sent your way
Will make you realize you lucky you are
To have live your life so long this far.

Best wishes and kisses we do send
Over the miles and around the bend
A happy, happy day to you
We are celebrating with you too.

We know you will give it your best.

So happy, happy birthday

To Age
Poet: Unknown

To age to age! Why does anyone care?
As the wrinkles grow longer,
And grey graces your hair.

Life should be simple,
Because when push comes to shove,
The only one counting is the good Lord above!


Candles
Poet: Unknown

Metallic Age
Poet: Unknown

To the "metallic" age
Gold in our teeth,
Silver in our hair,
And lead in our pants.


Another candle on your cake?
Well, that's no cause to pout.
Be glad that you have strength enough
To blow the candle out!
