Clever Birthday Poems


HAPPY AND YOUNG AT HEART
By Kevin Nishmas


Birthday Poems - Clever Birthday Poem and Clever Birthday Poem eCard for a Guy or Gal

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.




A FRIEND LIKE YOU
By Kevin Nishmas


Birthday Poems - Clever Birthday Poem and Clever Birthday Poem eCard for a Guy or Gal

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.




IF I KNEW YOU
By Nixon Waterman

I love this 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.


Birthday Poems - Clever Birthday Poem and Clever Birthday Poem eCard for a Guy or Gal

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."




WELCOME TO THE METAL AGE
By Kevin Nishmas


Birthday Poems - Clever Birthday Poem and Clever Birthday Poem eCard for a Guy or Gal

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.

You bring me out of my darkness,
I'm glad you're by my side.

Funny Birthday Poems



IN MY DAY
By Kevin Nishmas


Birthday Poems - Funny Birthday Poem and Funny Birthday Poem eCard for a Guy or Gal

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

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.




LONG IN THE TOOTH
By Kevin Nishmas


Birthday Poems - Funny Birthday Poem and Funny Birthday Poem eCard for a Guy or Gal

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

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.




MUSIC TO YOUR EARS
By Kevin Nishmas


Birthday Poems - Funny Birthday Poem and Funny Birthday Poem eCard for a Guy or Gal

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

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.




THERE ARE WORSE THINGS 
By Kevin Nishmas


Birthday Poems - Funny Birthday Poem and Funny Birthday Poem eCard for a Guy or Gal

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.




LIFE'S AS GOOD AS GOLD
By Kevin Nishmas


Birthday Poems - Funny Birthday Poem and Funny Birthday Poem eCard for a Guy or Gal

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.

Inspirational Birthday Poems


WHAT I CAN SEE
By Kevin Nishmas


Birthday Poems - Inspirational Birthday Poem and Inspirational Birthday Poem eCard for a Guy or Gal

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. 




EVERY MOMENT MATTERS
By Kevin Nishmas


Birthday Poems - Inspirational Birthday Poem and Inspirational Birthday Poem eCard for a Guy or Gal

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.




NOW'S A GREAT AGE
By Kevin Nishmas


Birthday Poems - Inspirational Birthday Poem and Inspirational Birthday Poem eCard for a Guy or Gal

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.




AS YOU GROW UP
By Kevin Nishmas


Birthday Poems - Inspirational Birthday Poem and Inspirational Birthday Poem eCard for a Guy or Gal

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.




YOU CAN DO IT
By Kevin Nishmas


Birthday Poems - Inspirational Birthday Poem and Inspirational Birthday Poem eCard for a Guy or Gal

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.

THIS CRAZY LOVE
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.




MY OBJECT OF BLISS
By Kevin Nishmas


Birthday Poems - Romantic Birthday Poem and Romantic Birthday Poem eCard for a Guy or Gal

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.




MY BEAUTIFUL BIRTHDAY BOY
By Kevin Nishmas


Birthday Poems - Romantic Birthday Poem and Romantic Birthday Poem eCard for a Guy or Gal

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.




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

Sentimental Birthday Poems


MY BROTHER I CALL HOME
By Kevin Nishmas

Dedicated to my brother


Birthday Poems - Sentimental Birthday Poem and Sentimental Birthday Poem eCard for a Guy or Gal

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.




EVEN WHEN
By Kevin Nishmas


Birthday Poems - Sentimental Birthday Poem and Sentimental Birthday Poem eCard for a Guy or Gal

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.




ONE GIFT YOU CANNOT BUY
By Kevin Nishmas


Birthday Poems - Sentimental Birthday Poem and Sentimental Birthday Poem eCard for a Guy or Gal

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.




A PRECIOUS FLOWER
By Kevin Nishmas


Birthday Poems - Sentimental Birthday Poem and Sentimental Birthday Poem eCard for a Guy or Gal

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.




FEEL YOUR SPIRIT BURN
By Kevin Nishmas


Birthday Poems - Sentimental Birthday Poem and Sentimental Birthday Poem eCard for a Guy or Gal

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.




BLESSED, HONORED, LOVED & CAREFREE
By Kevin Nishmas


Birthday Poems - Sentimental Birthday Poem and Sentimental Birthday Poem eCard for a Guy or Gal

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, honored, loved and carefree.




WHEN I WISH YOU
"HAPPY BIRTHDAY"
By Kevin Nishmas


Birthday Poems - Sentimental Birthday Poem and Sentimental Birthday Poem eCard for a Guy or Gal

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.




TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY
By Kevin Nishmas

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

Today is your birthday,
Today is all about you.

May you always find joy,
