Birthday poems are the best birthday messages to choose when you think a simple birthday wish is not enough. 

Why a poem? There's something about funny, sentimental, cute, inspirational, clever, romantic, cool and happy poems that make us want to read them over and over again.

In other words, poems are, as my Dad would always call anything important, keepers. And birthday poetry is, in my mind, the best kind of keepsake you can give family and friends.

Happy Birthday to My Very Best Friend!
Best Friends Forever!
By Kevin Nishmas (Message Guy)

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.

YES, YOU'VE SEEN YOUNGER DAYS
By Kevin Nishmas (Message Guy)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

You see your youth slipping away,
Yet you still think you look your best,
I'm here to tell you you're crazy,
Just put those delusions to rest.

The signs are there for you to see,
You don't have to look very far,
Don't freak out and bite my head off,
Simply admit how old you are.

You might say you're long in the tooth,
You prefer your food soft and tame,
Your days of eating steak are gone,
They're just a recipe for pain.  

It's time to forget about sex,
The ins and outs now leave a scar,
Your libido's seen better days,
Bending's the only thing getting hard.

You've certainly seen younger days,
But your past reads like a bad poem,
Carping Diem may seize the day
So can carpal tunnel syndrome.

Sleeping can be just a nightmare,
It's now your Achilles' heel,
Taking a nap anywhere helps,
Except those times behind the wheel. 

Your aches and pains are getting worse,
You feel and look just like hell,
BENGAY is now your BFF,
And the best cure for old man smell.

Dueling ailments is fun for you,
Playing it all day is a delight,
You think bowel movement duels stink,
Except when there's no throne in sight. 

You tend to forget names and faces,
Senior moments cause you mayhem,
You wish your friends would wear name tags,
But you always forget to ask them.

Now you love The Expendables,
But you're not zen with Billboard's charts,
You think pop music is just trash,
You crave the Beatles like an old fart.

You can no longer learn new tricks,
Yet you still feel like a swinger,
Don't let folks call you an old dawg,
Keep cool and give them the finger.

THERE ARE WORSE THINGS 
By Kevin Nishmas (Message Guy)

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 Message Guy

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.

Dedicated to my bro...

Birthday Poems - A Sentimental Birthday Poem for My Brother

MY BROTHER I CALL HOME
By Kevin Nishmas (Message Guy)

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.

Birthday Poems - Sentimental Birthday Poems

EVEN WHEN
By Message Guy

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.



Birthday Poems - Sentimental Poems for Birthdays

FEEL YOUR SPIRIT BURN
By Message Guy

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 Message Guy

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 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 I CAN SEE
By Message Guy

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.

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.

A FRIEND LIKE 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.

IF I KNEW YOU
By Nixon Waterman

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.

I'm so glad we know each other.
Happy birthday!

THIS CRAZY LOVE
By Message Guy

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 Message Guy

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 Message Guy

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.

BY MY SIDE
By Message Guy

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

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