Another Year
I’m wishing you another year
Of laughter, joy and fun,
Surprises, love and happiness,
And when your birthday’s done,
I hope you feel deep in your heart,
As your birthdays come and go,
How very much you mean to me,
More than you can know.
By Joanna Fuchs
A birthday comes just once a year, so make birthday time extra special for those you care about. The best birthday gifts focus exclusively on the birthday person. Make him or her the center of attention. Choose birthday gifts and birthday cards carefully. These birthday verses will enhance a birthday gift or birthday card. If you're also looking for a birthday gift, we have a link to a personalized gift boutique near the end of the page. A personalized gift makes an especially thoughtful birthday gift.
This is perfect to go with a birthday gift or to put on a birthday card.
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!

Birthday poetry can express appreciation, as this birthday poem does. Note that in this birthday verse as in the birthday greetings Another Year and Perfect Birthday above, if more than one person is sending this birthday verse, then change "I" to "we," "I'm" to "we're," and "me" to "us."
Birthday Appreciation
Each year your birthday reminds me
That I really want to say
I’m very glad I know you;
I think of you each day.
I hope you enjoy your birthday,
All the pleasures it has in store,
And because I appreciate you,
I hope you have many more!
By Joanna Fuchs
Birthday messages should be positive. This upbeat birthday verse is great for anyone, especially those who are concerned about getting older. You could title it, "For (name) on his/her (number of years) birthday. Attach this 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!"
By Joanna Fuchs

This free verse birthday poem is a free birthday greeting for someone very special.
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.
By Joanna Fuchs
This Happy Birthday poem is a birthday card verse that could apply to most people.
Happy Birthday Poem
Once a year I get the chance
To wish you birthday cheer.
It pleases me no end to say,
I wish you another great year.
So happy birthday to you (name),
From the bottom of my heart.
And may your good times multiply,
Till they’re flying off the chart!

Bright Joy
On your birthday,
I’m thinking about how much light and sparkle
you freely dispense wherever you go,

contagious happiness
that infects all who come in contact with you.
May your next birthday find you the same--
glowing from within,
beaming bright joy on everyone you meet.
I feel blessed to know you.

Birthday poetry can be written specifically with someone in mind. I wrote this free verse Happy Birthday poem for my stepmother. You can use this birthday verse for someone you know who gives you the gift of peace.
You Are A Gift
Some people give the gift
of peace and tranquility
to every life they touch.
They are always who they really are.
They are blessedly reliable,
dependably good,
predictably pleasant,
loved and treasured
by all who know them.
You are one of those people.
You are a gift
of peace and tranquility
in my life.
Happy Birthday!

Birthday poetry can be thought provoking, as this birthday poem is.
Birthday Reflections
Your birthday's a time for careful reflection
About your life, and its future direction.
You see where you've been when you look at the past;
Most of it's great; you had quite a blast!
You wonder what's coming, what life has in store;
Will it be just the same? Will there be a new door?
Remember this, as you blow out the last candle:
Life holds no challenge that you cannot handle.
By Joanna Fuchs

Every Year On Your Birthday
Every year, on your birthday,
I think about how glad I am
that you were born,
how thankful I am
to have you in my life.
Every year is another year
filled with the special joys you bring
just by being yourself.
Every year, when you open your birthday gifts,
realize what a gift you are
to everyone who knows you,
especially me.
Happy Birthday!

Birthday poetry should make the recipient feel very special, as this poem does. This Happy Birthday poem is perfect for a birthday card verse. Birthday poetry that rhymes, as this birthday rhyme does, makes a great birthday greeting.
Birthday Happiness
As we observe your birthday now,
Your cake and gifts don't matter much.
These common things aren't really you,
Ribbons, paper hats and such.
We celebrate a person who
Brings happiness to everyone,
Someone who gives more than she gets,
And fills our lives with joy and fun.
So Happy Birthday, and many more!
We hope you make it to a hundred and two,
Because we always want to have
The special pleasure of knowing you.

When Your Birthday Rolls Around
Because you mean so much to me,
I celebrate your birth.
Sharing time and space with you,
Rings my bell for all it’s worth.
Whenever your birthday rolls around,
I contemplate once more,
How happy I am that you were born;
The thought makes my heart soar.
I wish your birthdays happened more,
So I could let you know,
How very much you mean to me,
And so I could tell you so!
Dear mom/dad/sister/brother/friend/uncle/aunt, Happy Birthday!

You’re the most special person of all!

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.

Birthday poems do not always rhyme. This birthday poem 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.

Daughter Birthday Poem
Birthday messages are often sent to family members. Although I wrote this daughter birthday poem in free verse for my own stepdaughter, Kim, it's a daughter birthday greeting that you could use, too, if it fits your daughter.

It's your birthday, but we got the gift...
a gentle, sweet, beautiful daughter
who is always a pleasure to be with.
You glow with sensitivity and compassion
generated from the depths
of your warm heart and and kind soul.
A loving mom, a peacemaker,
a woman full of the joy of life,
that's you.
Anyone who spends time with you
is privileged to know
such an extraordinary person.
You are a great joy in our lives.
We love you and cherish you and treasure you
and wish that every one of your birthdays
will be the happiest yet.

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;

Just like Dad and Mom taught her.

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

She's our angel granddaughter,
And we just want to say...

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
