Happy Birthday Card Poem
Happy Birthday Poem for a Daughter

I've shared the first one with my sister and my grandma.

I wish my grandpa was still around so that I could share a funny one with him (he always had a great sense of humor).

You certainly do not need to share them only with your immediate family.

I often share these poems with my uncles, aunts, cousins, friends, and even strangers on the street.

Ok, maybe not strangers, but maybe I'll start doing that.

It's all about brightening someone's day. It usually doesn't take much (just a few thoughtful words).


Happy birthday,

I wish you the best.

And lots of love,

that's clearly expressed.

I wish you everything,

that you sincerely desire.

The most wonderful memories,

I hope you acquire.

Happy birthday,

and countless more years.

I'm excited to join,

the party and cheers.

For so many of us,

you're a joy that is true.

How much you mean to us,

if only you knew.

Happy birthday,

may all your joys shine.

Our mutual laughter,

is a very good sign.

Happy birthday,

and another great year.

Celebrate cheerfully,

with those that are dear.

You may ask frankly,

where time has gone.

Tomorrow you may try,

to wake before dawn.

But life is not merely,

about counting those hours.

It's all about moments,

and smelling those flowers.

Happy birthday,

and another great year,

Mistakes from the past,

there's no need to fear.

With your great big smile,

simply look ahead.

And your positive energy,

generously spread.

Happy birthday,

one more sweet time.

May it flow smoothly,

just like this rhyme.

Just like the above poem states, time does pass really quickly. Next thing we know we're six years older or even ten years older. It always seems like it was just yesterday that we celebrated this or that birthday.

Unfortunately, we will never be able to stop or slow down time. The only thing we could do is savour each day, each birthday, each celebration, each candle. We need to express our feelings openly with the people in our lives, because none of us will be here forever.

Happy Birthday Card Poem

True Words

Happy birthday,

this card is for you.

It's nothing special,

but the words are all true.

I wish you countless,

gifts from the heart.

And the joys of today,

never depart.

Happy birthday,

you're in my mind.

Especially the fact,

that you're humble and kind.

May the rest of your life,

be cheerful and sweet.

Filled with adventure,

and sand on your feet.

Happy birthday,

Your gifts and blessings,

hope you adore.

Now you just need to decide which happy birthday poem you like the best. Well, I hope it brings lots of happiness to whomever you decide to share it with.
