I’ve spoken many lies.
I’ve broken many promises.
I’ve picked up many fights.
I’ve given you bad memories.
Yet, through this chaos.
By my side, you’ve stood strong.
Backing me all the time
Even when you know, I was wrong
What did I do to deserve
Such a loyal friend, I have no clue
But one thing’s for sure, my life
Is nothing without you

4. Love and Hugs
by Pamela J. Langdon
A bunch of flowers,
A homemade cake,
That special gift,

We hold these gifts
In high regard.

I can truly say
Is our love and hugs
On your special day.
5. Wishes and Blessings

surprises, great and small –

Happy birthday, dearest friend.
7. Maturity and Growing Up
When you are young, life leaves you no choice.
Do this, do that.
No room for a little voice
When all you want to do is play and just have fun
Ride your bike, roller skate, and be free to run.
With no concerns for the who’s, what’s, when’s and why’s.
Then you go from a girl to a woman before your own eyes.
Life gives you lessons to learn as you grow,
Room for mistakes and time to show what you know.
Just be patient because things will soon go your way.
Enjoy the young times and have a happy birthday!
8. Happy Birthday!
by Kevin Nishmas
You’re still a teenager at heart,
Eating in your bed is routine,
Early-bird dinners are not your style,
Midnight pizza is more your scene.
No one has a right to call you old,
You can still pass for middle aged,
All your parts hurt but still work,
With the right nip, tuck and dosage.
You have never looked so young,
Your head’s still hairier than your ears,
Your arms don’t jiggle like Jello,
And zits still reduce you to tears.
9. My Companion
My companion in life
A close friend is one
Of the most important
Things in life, and if
You’re lucky enough

You’ll have found

That is you, my dear.
Happy birthday to my
Companion in life: my
10. To the Strongest Lady I Know, On Your Birthday
On your birthday,
I wanted you to know
that I am so fortunate
not only to have such
a strong female figure
in my life, but also
the most reliable,
I could wish for.
You are an inspiration
to many, including me!
Have the absolute best
day, you lovely lady!

The rest of things are just temporary,
Only these will be your real wealth.
5. Missed Birthday
by John P. Read
I’m so sorry I missed your birthday.
A special day, I know it’s true.
But birthdays are only here one day,
And I love you the whole year through.
Birthday cards are only pieces of paper,
Verses written by someone we never knew.
How could they ever truly explain
All the feelings I have for you?
So I’ve bought a card without any verse
As I wanted to write one of my own
To let you know what you really mean to me
And not words from someone unknown.
Yes, birthday cards are just pieces of paper
That we read then just put away,
But my love for you is forever,
And forever means now and always.
6. Special Day
by Marie Matheny
Here it is,
Your special day,
So I thought I’d take
This time to say
How nice it is
To have a friend
The kind of friend
Who’s always there,
Ready to show
That someone cares.
You’ve cheered me up
When I was down
Just by simply
And oh the times
We’ve spent in laughter
Have made me chuckle
For many days after.
We’ve stored many
Good memories away
As I sit here drowned
In memory today.
Wanted to share
This thought with you
Having you as a friend
Makes it my special day too.
7. Happy Birthday
by Vashni Kelly
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.
Your heart cannot be snatched as you give love freely anyway.
What I wish for you is for all your dreams to come shining through.
What I pray for you is for your success, which is overdue.
Happy birthday to you from someone who truly appreciates you.
Happy birthday to you for all the good work that you always do.
8. Forever Friends
Forever friends, our hearts entwined,
A friendship so rare, one of a kind.
Happy birthday, my dear, with love untold,
Forever friends, a bond that will never grow old.
Through life’s twists and turns, we’ll never part,
Forever friends, a love from the heart.
Grateful for the journey we continue to share,
Best friend, forever friends, a love beyond compare.
9. Your Birthday
by Gordon Duquette
Today must be your birthday because the sun is shinning bright.
The clouds that are usually hiding it are now nowhere in sight.
The birds are singing joyfully as they go happily on their way.
It’s as if Mother Nature herself knew this was a very special day.
The day before was gloomy and the weather was pretty bad,
But on this day it all went away and now I don’t feel so sad.
My sadness was replaced with happiness that wasn’t there before.
Your birthday does this every year, so I hope you’ll have many more.
Every year it has been this way since the day of your sweet birth,
And it’s this day that makes me appreciate my time down here on earth.
My friendship with you grows each year, and I feel a special bond.
When this day no longer shines, I will know that you are gone.
10. A Gift of Friendship
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.

It cannot be measured by the time

Our friendship is mouthful like cake
It is tasty, precious and never fake
Our friendship feels good and unfeigned.
Here’s wishing you a beautiful happy birthday dearest!
12. Friends Like You
by Catherine Pulsifer

Remember the years of teenage
And now the years have passed us by
But our friendship no one can deny.
God sends us friends to bless us
And you in my life has been a plus
The years can pass us by you see
But friends we will always be!

Like family, you’ve become a part of my heart,
From the very start, we’ve had a special spark.
Happy birthday, dear friend, a chosen kin,
Like family, our bond will always win.
Through thick and thin, we’ve built a home,
Like family, together, we’ll forever roam.

1. Happy Birthday
Happy birthday to the cartoon I know,
You have so many stupid gestures to show,
Ok, don’t get bugged; I was kidding, my dear,
Coz it’s your birthday, so spread the cheer,
Have the most amazing day of your life,
May God give me strength to survive,
2. Your Zoo
by Martin Dejnicki
A birthday should always be a joyous occasion,
Family and friends; obvious invasion.
Duplicate gifts, you don’t even like,
If you complain, might get a strike.
One simple day, placed on display,
Carefully observed for signs of decay.
Dishonest smiles, they don’t mingle in truth,
As if you were the only, losing your youth.
At such a wise age, everything seems so clear,
Excuse to celebrate, they all came for beer.
Deep down inside, you know that they care,
Your Zoo is unique; normal is rare.
3. Today Is Your Birthday
Today is your birthday, don’t pull your hair,
Look in the mirror, nature was fair,
Not a day over twenty,
I’m kidding, you’re plenty.
Don’t mean to burst your bubble,
But stop asking for trouble,
You know what I mean,
When you drink that caffeine.
What should I bring?
Just give me a ring.
Elephant or clown?
I knew you would frown.
4. Beauty and the Botox
You may look a little older,
Sadly youth doesn’t come cheap,
So skip all those Botox parties,
And just get your beauty sleep.
Be glad you’re young at heart,
And still, look as good as gold,
Too bad you’re not a millionaire,
And can’t put your looks on hold.
5. Stay Happy
You’ve done quite well since your start,
So as you grow older take heart,
Keep up the good work and don’t be a jerk,
Stay happy till you’re an old fart.
6. Sweet Birthday to You
A wish for lots of birthday fun
To last until the day is done.
Hoping that all your wishes comes true,
and your birthday cake is as sweet as you!
7. Birthday Cheer
by Joanna Fuchs
Here they come, with birthday cheer,
Bringing gifts just once a year,
People you don’t even like;
You really wish they’d take a hike.
This should be a glad occasion;
But it seems more like a SWAT invasion.
Go away! Just take a break!
Oh well, at least there’s birthday cake.
8. Can’t Remember
I wish you something, just can’t remember,
Don’t be upset; you’re my family member.
It was clearly, on my mind,
With so many thoughts, it’s hard to find.
Maybe it’s simply not that essential,
Please lose that frown; you have so much potential.
On second thought, it might be coming back to me,
Now I know why those brain pills were free.
Visions appear of colorful balloons,
In the background, I hear those fine tunes.
Near the end of the dream, I can taste a delicious cake,
It must be your birthday, as I awake.
9. The Best Face
Your birthday is a joyous occasion,
For family and friends, a special day,
A time to tell you how good you look,
As we check you for signs of decay.
Our loving, caring smiles tell no lies,
Our flattery has but a grain of truth,
When we say you look like a teen,
We mean you’re losing your youth.
Nobody gets out of here a beauty,
That should be clear at your stage,
Deep down inside, you know it’s true,
Even the best faces sag with age.
10. Getting Old on Your Birthday
It is indeed tough to stack candles on your cake,
For I am truly running out of space.
It’s time we think of something new,
But I ensure I’ll make it so true.
Happy birthday dear friend
For genuine love and prayers, here I send.
11. Have a Happy Birthday
by Catherine Pulsifer
Friends come and go
But you my friend
Have stuck with me
But we’re not to the end.
You may be getting older
And a bit wiser too
But I know your age,
But don’t let that get you blue.
You may be a bit slower,
You may see wrinkles too
But my friend that will
Never stop you.
Your hair is turning colors,
Is it silver or gray?
Just have a Happy Birthday!
12. Cheers and Grins
Comes around just once each year,
Create a sensational ambiance.
Turn up the party, from start till end,
Feel the vibe, smile, and raise the glass
Make the summer birthday outfits glide
It’s a cheery day, just keep an eye on the Cake
Making all the candles tilt and sway
Summers birthday, all wishes come true,
Cheers and grins. Happy Birthday!

7. The Years Go Flying by So Fast
by Samantha C. Ringle
The years go flying by so fast
We wonder why our youth does not last
But when I look at you I see
A younger version of what you used to be
But remember I am aging with you
And without my glasses the picture is skewed
So who cares about what has been done
As long as birthdays keep having fun!
8. A Birthday Gift to You

The smile, the trust, or the way you care.

2. Aging Advice
by Julie Hebert
Happy Birthday to my dear friend,
I wish you a happy and great day.
Can’t believe you’re now one year older,
Time to celebrate and holler Hooray!
Being an age older than you,
I must give you a little advice.
Growing older is not just getting wiser,
It’s all in the roll of the dice.
Some of us start to forget things,
Others our bodies unravel.
We wish we could take aging and stop it,
Or maybe sent it somewhere to travel.
All I can say is eat well,
And try and take care of yourself.
A little exercise and great company,
Is what aging is all about.
3. Happy Birthday, Special Treasure
by Joanna Fuchs
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.
4. Her Birthday
by Neha Meharde
It’s your birthday and I sit down to write,
Reminiscing those times so bright.
We’ve been together through thick and thin.
We’ve lived through the hurdles to win.
Time flew as we grew
Together in this bond so true,
And I have known friends,
But the ones like us are few.
I make you mad and you drive me nuts,
But we have the thing that is called trust.
We laugh, we cry, we make time fly.
Together we smile, together we sigh.
Over this and that and crazy crap
The dodgy pits, that familiar trap.
The similarities we share, the differences that glare,
But we know that such relations are rare.
We share our dreams, these desires that burn,
And someday we believe will be our turn!
Ten long years and still going strong
For the understanding we share in life’s ping-pong.
So I wish you all the happiness
And wish you loads of luck,
A bag full of smiles,
And chocolate-laden truck.
Happy birthday to you again,
And I hope that you soar.
I’ll always wish the best
Because you know I love you more!
5. My Friend on Your Birthday
by Anisha Joseph
Dear friend, let me say
something on this special day
Though we are far apart,
You’ll be always in my heart.
I cherish those moments,
our silly fights and funny talks
and how we grew together,
stayed united in grief and laughter.
May your face always light up with glee.
I wish you never ever feel empty.
I pray, may God be always by your side.
I want you to always lift up your head in pride.
My friend, on your birthday,
all I want to say
is that you mean the world to me
and you are more than just a friend to me.

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.
Today should be a day of pure happiness and love for you,
Enjoying and gathering with those who remain devoted and true.
I wish you the best in life, though we both know how hard it can be,
But I pray that God will open your doors to brighter opportunities.
You are the kind of person who always offers a helping hand.
We are miles away from each other, but the love we share will never end.
Never seeing you again will always be a difficult test,
But our everlasting friendship is what I will never forget.
I won’t forget about all the things you’ve brought to my years:
Long-lasting laughter and contenting cheers.
I never knew that all of these blessings could all come true,
But my life has been better, and it’s all because of you.
Wherever you are right now, I pray that you are happy and safe.
I don’t know your status, but I hope things are going your way.
I know for a fact that God will strengthen you and help you to be stronger.
I pray, my friend, that no weapon formed against you will prosper.
Thank you so much for your kindness, loyalty, and forgiveness.
You’ve promised me many times that I’ll never travel life without a witness.
So happy blessed birthday, my friend; thanks for being there for me.
I miss you deeply, but you’re always in my memories.

9. Still and Careless Within
by Amelia Tracey
Within you, I’ve found the perfect friend,
Someone I know will be there till the end,
And they’re not just thoughts I hope will fulfill
But thoughts that will stand forever still.
Still as the wind on a hot summer’s day,
Still as your friendship I’ll never betray,
Still as the characters in a photograph,
Still as your breathless, silent laugh.
Within you, I’ve found the perfect friend,
A mind that I can comprehend,
A person I see is so much like me,
A mutual relationship so carefree.
Carefree as a child who questions the world,
Carefree as a scream that goes unheard,
Carefree as an adult blessed with a dream,
Carefree as water flowing downstream.
Within you, I’ve found the perfect friend
With whom I can be real and never pretend.
You’ve always been someone unique from the rest.
You hold a piece of me no other can possess.
Within you is reason to live every moment in time.
Within you the life I want is always mine.
Within you I have the perfect friend.
With you I see myself till the very end.

1. Happy Birthday
by Theodore W. Higginsworth
My wish for you on this special day

And may life treat you great in all the ways
That my wishes and words can’t tell.
Behind you now is yesterday.
Let your experience and knowledge pave the way

We know you will give it your best.
So happy, happy birthday

2. A Special Day
by Georgina Devlin
Birthdays come and birthdays go,
And some mean more than most,
But you, my friend, dread all of them
And never wish to boast.
Just another day, you say,
But is that what you mean
When under all the negatives
Is there a different scene?
A night enjoyed with your close friends
Is a happy time for all.
With your charm and wit and funny tales,
You keep them on the ball.
Accepting gifts from those who care
Has never been your thing.
Although when given with much love,
You see the thoughts they bring.
So for this your milestone time of year,
Accept what comes your way
And share the joy you give to others
On this your three score ten and a half birthday!
3. My Friend
On your special day
I quote Harold B. Lee
“May you have
Enough happiness to keep you sweet,
Enough trials to keep you strong,
Enough sorrow to keep you human,
Enough hope to keep you happy,
Enough failure to keep you humble,
Enough success to keep you eager,
Enough wealth to meet your needs,
Enough enthusiasm to look forward,
Enough friends to give you comfort,
Enough faith to banish depression,
Enough determination to make each day better than yesterday.”.
