Sentimental birthday poems, like the beautifully written, original ones here, are the best birthday messages to choose...if you want to go beyond "classic" birthday wishes.
Poems, by their very nature, are perfect as sentimental birthday messages. The rhythm, imagery, metaphors and words of poetry lend themselves beautifully to any message of love, compassion and nostalgia, three key ingredients of any great sentimental birthday greeting.
Love, compassion and nostalgia, in varying degrees, can be found in the birthday wishes here. Your job is to find the one that comes closest to the sentimental message you want to convey and the one that will resonate most with the birthday boy or girl.

Tasty little cupcakes,
All lined up in a row,
Saluting a special someone,
Someone I love so.
Hope you enjoy your birthday,
May each moment be kind to you,
You deserve to know happiness,
And see your wishes all come true.
Today is a reminder,
You're so special to me,
I'm so glad I know you,
Happy may your birthday be.
Birthdays are a blessing in disguise,
The greatest gift around,
May you receive this gift for years,
May your birthday blessings abound.
Count each birthday as a miracle,
Forget the candles on your cake,
Every special day you celebrate,
Adds up to the difference you make.
We've been friends for a long time,
So I'm just so delighted to express,
You are my absolute dearest friend,
Happy birthday and all the best.
You nurtured me when I was younger,
You catered to all my needs,
I'm so very thankful to you.
You mean the world to me.
I still remember the old days,
When we were under one roof,
Our birthdays were small affairs,
You and I were such goofs.
We'd sit around the kitchen table,
You used to cut the birthday cake,
If you took too big of a piece,
I'd smear it all over your face.
Today again that day has come,
It's your special day of the year,
I brought a cake to celebrate you,
And cover your face ear to ear.
I traveled many miles to be here,
I came from a distant place,
Let's make your birthday special,
Once again for old time's sake.
Your birthday comes once a year,
Today is a special time for you,
You should have only special things,
One simple wish just wouldn't do.
So I wish you all the stars in the sky,
A beam of light to show you the way,
All the love and joy in the world,
Starting now on your birthday.
At our age, life's so sweet,
Even sweeter because of you,
You've been a shoulder to lean on,
A friend through and through.
You're in my heart now and always,
My regard for you grows every day,
Your sweet song is music to my soul,
Nothing sweeter's ever come my way.
Birthdays come and go too fast,
Too quick to appreciate,
Today's your birthday once more,
The perfect time to celebrate.
Let's raise a glass to you and yours,
Let's commemorate your big day,
You're the finest person I know,
May you stay blessed in every way.
