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
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.


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.

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.

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

To have live your life so long this far.

Best wishes and kisses we do send
Over the miles and around the bend

We wish you happiness and health
And never forget that the important things are not wealth

General Birthday Poems

So what if you’re 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 a case of the twentysomethings,
And a room at Mom and Dad’s.

To me, you’re simply wonderful.
Everything about you is just right,
So have a happy birthday,
And let’s party all night.
By Message Guy


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.

What a day to be happy,
And smile the whole way through,
Today is your big birthday,
A special one just for you.

Blow out all your candles,
Make your wishes come true,
Eat slice after slice of cake,
Nothing is too good for you.

May the days that lie ahead
Be filled with gladness too
For there just couldn’t be anyone
Who deserves it more than you.

Perfect Birthday

On your birthday I wish you much pleasure and joy;
I hope all of your wishes come true.
May each hour and minute be filled with delight,
And your birthday be perfect for you!

By Message Guy

Happy birthday!

I have many friends,
But one above the rest,
That one is you,
You are simply the best.

It’s a friend like you,
In good times and bad,
Who asks for nothing,
Yet offers a hand.

Wherever I go in life,
There’s only one thing to do,
I must have a big heart,
And be a friend like you.

Happy Birthday to my very best friend.
Your special day has come by again.
We had so much fun last time around,
A younger sister was someone I found.

Each year March 4th is a wonderful day,
As we march forth in our own fun way.
Just hanging around and laughing a lot,
It is truly amazing what we have got.

A friendship like ours is not easy to come by,
Often the intensity of it makes me so high.
Is our beautiful friendship really only a dream?
Sometimes it feels so unreal that I must scream.

Cries of joy and happiness galore,
And that is what I most adore.
Your infectious laughter and zest for life,
But I am there to keep you from strife.

How lucky we are to have found one another,
I couldn’t spend so much time with any other.
I will always be there to watch over you,
To keep you safe and happy too.

Well my dear I wish you Happy Birthday once more,
An abundance of good wishes for you are in store.
A new year filled with lots of happiness and laughter,
And only the very best for you from here on after.

Happy birthday poems for Lovers


My love for you, shall never pause,
Strong and determined with all our flaws.
It endures and doesn’t judge,
Never holds a lasting grudge.

Generous, loyal, always kind,
To your outer layer blind.
Surely, opposite of rude,
My beating heart I must include.

On your birthday, my love for you,
From the clouds, a perfect view.
Moments, memories, a year gone by,
I’m here for you, don’t you cry.

My love for you, lives by the truth,
Always keeps me, in my youth.
When it sees, our trust and hope,
It climbs and conquers any slope.

Birthday Poems

What are the best clever birthday poems for a card or eCard? The best are birthday poems that contain clever twists or turns of phrase (nothing too cryptic, of course).

For some ideas, check out the clever birthday poem examples below:

By Kevin Nishmas

You're happy and young at heart,
Your energy knows no bounds,
You make us all look ancient,
It's time to nap and slow down.

You're full of piss and vinegar,
All set to spring into action,
We all feel old next to you,
Stop or you'll end up in traction.

We are not really complaining,
We're just a bunch of old farts,
We secretly wish we were you,
You're happy and young at heart.

By Kevin Nishmas

Happy birthday!

I have many friends,
But one above the rest,
That one is you,
You are simply the best.

It's a friend like you,
In good times and bad,
Who asks for nothing,
Yet offers a hand.

Wherever I go in life,
There's only one thing to do,
I must have a big heart,
And be a friend like you.

By Nixon Waterman

This is a clever birthday poem because it brilliantly uses turns of phrase to show that we are all the same underneath, although we are unique individuals.

It's a beautiful birthday wish for someone special, perhaps your brother or sister who may not fully understand you...or vice versa.

Happy birthday!

"If I knew you and you knew me,
If both of us could clearly see,
And with an inner sight divine,
The meaning of your heart and mine.

I'm sure that we would differ less,
And clasp our hands in friendliness.
Our thoughts would pleasantly agree,
If I knew you and you knew me."

By Kevin Nishmas

Welcome to the metal age,
You have solid gold for teeth,
Brilliant silver for hair,
And steel joints underneath. 

Your body is always aching,
That is not a reason to pout,
Be glad you still have stamina,
To blow all your candles out.


Birthday Poems

When should you use cool birthday poems? The best time to use them is with truly "hip" birthday gals and guys. Typically, they can quickly appreciate the "cool" factor of just about anything. 

What makes a birthday poem cool? Any verse that makes you say "wow" to yourself. Below are examples of cool birthday poems to get you started:

By Kevin Nishmas

Be the best you can be,
Imagine what you can do,
Remember who you are,
There's nobody like you,
Honor your past,
Dwell on your heart,
All you need is love,
Your birthday is a start.

By Kevin Nishmas

It's your birthday again,
Time to wish you good things,
May you see the wonder,
And the joy a birthday brings. 

To you, I wish the best of health,
And the best of luck in all you do,
Mostly I wish you love,
For a life that's pure and true.

By Kevin Nishmas

On your birthday every year,
I thank God you were born,
For without you in my life,
My love would be forlorn.

As each year brings new tests,
Sometimes I just want to hide,
You bring me out of my darkness,
I'm glad you're by my side.

Happy birthday!


Birthday Poems

What are the best cute birthday poems? Cute poems are, by nature, a very, very sweet way to wish "Happy Birthday" to someone very special.

That said, you should not be too cute with your birthday poems. Just a dash of cuteness goes a long way. Below are cute birthday poems to get you started:

By Kevin Nishmas

What a day to be happy,
And smile the whole way through,
Today is your big birthday,
A special one just for you.

Blow out all your candles,
Make your wishes come true,
Eat slice after slice of cake,
Nothing is too good for you.

By Kevin Nishmas

May your birthday be epic,
May you never settle for less,
May your special day be special,
May you be blessed with the best.

May your dreams never die,
May your wishes come true,
May your birthday be ageless,
May you be born anew.


Birthday Poems

What are the best funny birthday poems? Firstly, funny poems do not need to be "laugh out loud" hilarious. Funny birthday poems merely need to elicit a giggle or two.

Your ultimate goal is to make the birthday boy or girl happy. With this objective in mind, glance at the poems below for inspiration: 

By Kevin Nishmas


When you start to see your youth fade,
And your looks have seen better days,
I'll be here to say you're sexy,
Even when your nose hair is gray.

You may not be over the hill,
But you say "in my day" too much,
When you're not clubbing at Costco,
You're napping right after brunch.

You may be older than you think,
But you still have lots more time,
Celebrate each and every day,
Just don't nod off before nine.

By Kevin Nishmas


You might say we're long in the tooth,
Eating chewy food is a nightmare,
We can't 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's now our Achilles' heel,
Taking a nap anywhere helps,
Except when we're behind the wheel. 

We tend to forget names and faces,
Senior moments are now our friend,
We wish people wore name tags,
But we always forget to ask them.

By Kevin Nishmas


You know all the elevator tunes,
You hate what's on Billboard's charts,
You think today's music is pure trash,
You crave The Beatles like an old fart.

You don't know the names of bands,
Yet you still feel like a swinger,
Don't let folks call you a hippie,
Peace out and give them the finger.

By Kevin Nishmas

So what if you're 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 a case of the twentysomethings,
And a room at Mom and Dad's.

To me, you're simply wonderful.
Everything about you is just right,
So have a happy birthday,
And let's party all night.

By Kevin Nishmas

Happy birthday!

Wow, another birthday is here,
What can I really say?
You look pretty good,
Even with a touch of gray. 

Your eyes are still so blue,
You're still so kind and mellow,
Your smile is just as infectious,
Even though your teeth are yellow.

Yes, this birthday is grand,
Your life's as good as gold,
But you can't fool Mother Nature,
You are still getting old.


Birthday Poems

How do you write a happy birthday poem? The key ingredient is a sense of joy, so your happy birthday poems do not have to be inspirational or sentimental in nature. Your poetry only needs to bring joy to the birthday girl or boy.

What brings joy? It depends on what you think will cheer up the recipient of the happy birthday poem, so this is your call. This is easier than you think — you'll know the right poem when you see it. Below are happy birthday poems to give you some ideas:

By Kevin Nishmas

A cheery "hello" on your birthday,
And wishes for everything bright,
May you know only joy and wonder,
Morning, noon and night.

Happy birthday!

By Kevin Nishmas

Another year has passed,
Your birthday is here,
May this year bring joy,
Twelve months you hold dear.

Follow your true bliss,
Achieve all you can,
Dream the good dream,
Create a new plan.

This year will be great,
This I wish for you,
You deserve all you want,
May your dreams come true.

By Kevin Nishmas

My fondest wishes are for you,
Since today's your special day,
May every dream you chase,
Come true and never stray.

You are so special to me,
You deserve the best of all,
May your birthday be ageless,
May you know joy big and small.

By Kevin Nishmas

Wishing you the best,
Day in and day out,
May you find great joy,
May you twist and shout.

Be grateful for life,
Thank heaven above,
Fill your days with hope,
Know that you are loved.

By Kevin Nishmas

Happy birthday!

You deserve the very best,
All the special things in life,
Whatever makes you happy,
Whatever feels just right.

I want these gifts to be yours,
Each and every day,
To them I add love and peace,
Above all on your birthday.


Birthday Poems

What makes a birthday poem inspirational? Inspirational birthday poems, like beauty, are in the eyes of the beholder. Since you know your loved ones well, you are the best person to choose the right inspirational birthday poems for them.

All you need to do is write or pick inspirational birthday poems that have uplifting, life-changing birthday messages. Sounds daunting? It isn't. Below are inspirational birthday poems to, well, inspire you:

By Kevin Nishmas

I wish you saw what I can see,
I see a heart so full of love,
I see eyes so hopeful and wise,
And I know what you're made of.

I wish you saw what I can see,
I see promise a mile long,
I see unvisited, distant strength,
And I know in you travels a song.

I wish you saw what I can see,
I see it's not yet real for you,
But I see what I see as your fate,
And I know one day you'll see it too.

By Kevin Nishmas

Hope you have the best birthday,
With laughter that never fades,
Every moment matters,
That's how memories are made.

Wishing you joy and wonder,
Here's to your amazing health,
May you always see beauty,
There is more to life than wealth.

By Kevin Nishmas

Happy birthday!

Now's a great age to take chances,
And do all you want to do,
Your creativity knows no bounds,
What you need is right in you. 

Your wisdom is wiser than ever,
Your spirit is bolder than bold,
Your humor is more humorous,
There's just no time to be old.

By Kevin Nishmas

As you grow up, may you find...
Hope before despair,
Passion before boredom,
Love before loss,
Joy before sorrow,
Peace before turmoil,
And only happy birthdays ever after.

By Kevin Nishmas

I know you can do it,
If you would only try,
It's mind over matter,
There is no better high.

You must forget yourself,
And let go of what's dear,
You'll see beyond the noise,
You will conquer your fear.

If you're afraid to fail,
Know you are not alone,
Even the brave fight fear,
We all dread the unknown.

But you truly stand out,
The world needs what you bring,
When it's your turn to shine,
Reach out for the brass ring.

Climb the wall before you,
Build a bridge to cloud nine,
Unsteady ground you'll tread,
It will be worth your time.


Birthday Poems

What are the best romantic birthday poems? My personal favorites are romantic poems that truly express what's in your heart. But there is one thing in common all romantic birthday poems share: the ability to set the right romantic mood.

Since our romantic feelings may shift over time, there's no one-size-fits-all romantic birthday poem. Below are examples that run the gamut from slightly romantic to full-blown sappy to give you a few ideas:

By Kevin Nishmas

Dreaming of you is divine,
You give me so much pleasure,
I want to be with you now,
You are my special treasure.

May we celebrate all night,
I'm into all that you do,
Let's make today so steamy,
That's my birthday wish for you.

By Kevin Nishmas

It was a spark at first,
A glow I couldn't see,
It flickered in my heart,
This crazy love in me.

It soon became a fire,
A fierce flame so carefree,
Scorching my deep heartache,
This crazy love in me.

Now a blaze of sunshine,
A beam of warmth so true,
A slow, searing, kind burn,
This crazy love is you.

By Kevin Nishmas

Happy birthday, my love,
You're the castle around my heart,
Part fortress, part ivory tower,
'Til never do we part.

You crossed the moat of my soul,
And led me to parts unknown,
To an isle full of joy,
A middle age all our own.

For me, there's nothing between us,
Except warmth, love and laughter,
You're the dream beyond my walls,
My object of bliss forever after.

By Kevin Nishmas

Happy birthday!

Sweet like a honey drop,
As loving as can be,
A heart the size of an ocean,
A soul filled with glee.

You're not just a siren song,
You're a lifelong symphony,
Your rhythm moves me,
To rise up, dance and sing.

I'm glad you were born today,
My beautiful birthday boy,
You make my life stunning,
And fill it with such joy.

Below is a verse I adapted from John Lennon's song, Across the Universe, which appears on the album Let It Be by The Beatles. when you read it, you'll know why I consider it one of the most romantic birthday messages on this site.

These lyrics will show your "special someone" the depth of your love for him or an elegantly romantic way. Let the birthday Beatle-love-fest begin!


Birthday Poems

When is the right time to use a sentimental birthday poem? When you want to tell your loved ones how much they mean to you, sentimental birthday poems are ideal.

The best sentimental birthday poems evoke a sense of joy and nostalgia at the same time. Below are examples of sentimental birthday poems that should give you a good start:

By Kevin Nishmas

You arrived before me,
Forged a path all alone,
You were, you are, the first,
My brother I call home.

You were once so distant,
An island all your own,
You soon came into view,
My brother I call home.

We grew ever closer,
Fleeing the unknown,
Bridging every gap,
My brother I call home.

With no walls between us,
With paths yet to roam,
With you I will travel,
My brother I call home.

By Kevin Nishmas

Even when I'm hanging by a thread,
And I don't want to let go at all,
I can still release my grip to fate,
Because I know you will catch my fall.

Even when I'm walking on thin ice,
And there's simply nowhere to run,
You take me to kinder, higher ground,
Where brave souls and wild hearts are one.

Even when I need to stand my ground,
And I only have one leg to stand on,
I lean on you for strength and faith,
Braving the struggle until it's gone.

Even when my cup has runneth over,
And I cannot take another drop,
You gladly give me your own glass,
Infused with love and filled to the top.

By Kevin Nishmas

There's one gift you cannot buy,
A buried treasure precious and true,
It's the gift of a close, kind friend,
Exactly what I have in you.

We've shared each other's joys,
And cried on each other's shoulders,
These are our precious moments,
That make us stronger, even bolder.

So I wish you "Happy birthday,"
With all my heart and soul,
We'll be best friends forever,
Two halves of one fabulous whole.

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.

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.

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.

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.

By Kevin Nishmas

Another year has passed,
It's your birthday once more,
You should feel very special,
And let your spirit soar.

Celebrate every moment,
There's no time to be blue,
Today is your birthday,
Today is all about you.

May you always find joy,
North, south, east and west,
Happy, happy birthday to you,
I wish you the very best.
