10 Birthday Poems


Sometimes during birthday parties people want to read out birthday poems.  Some write the poem themselves, some have someone else write it with a brief history of the person given for information and others find a generic poem that was written by someone else.  However the poem is written, if it relates to the birthday individual, that's all that matters.  We at birthday wishes, quotes have gathered some poems for you , hope they will be helpful.

Here's a birthday spanking,
Sent you on a card,
One, Two, Three,
Put them right on hard,
Four, Five, Six
One to live on, one to grow on,
One to make you fat.                                                        


  1. Birthday Fun

Birthdays come and go,
But one thing never leaves.
The feeling that we get inside,
Gifts make us feel like thieves.
And don't forget the cake,
Birthdays are nothing without.
Family and friends get together,
Laughter is around, no doubt!

Julie Hebert

  1. Sing a song of birthdays

Full of fun and cheer
And may you keep on having them
For many a happy year.

  1. As I Grow Old

God keep my heart attuned to laughter,

When youth is done;

When all the days are gray days,

coming afterThe warmth, the sun.

God keep me then from bitterness, from grieving,

When life seems cold;

God keep me always loving and believing

As I grow old.

  1. Grow Old Along With Me!

The best is yet to be,

The last of life, for which the first was made:

Our times are in his hand

Who saith, A whole I planned,Youth shows but half;

trust God: see all, nor be afraid!          


Robert Browning



  1. Let Me Grow Lovely

Let me grow lovely, growing old
So many fine things do:
Laces, and ivory, and gold,
And silks need not be new;
And there is healing in old trees,
Old streets a glamour hold;
Why may not I, as well as these,
Grow lovely, growing old?

Karle Wilson Baker


  1.  I remember, I remember                                                    

The roses, red and white,
The violets, and the lily-cups,
Those flowers made of light!
The lilacs, where the robin built,
And where my brother set
The laburmum on his birthday,-
The tree is living yet.

Thomas Hood 


  1. Past And Future

Fun for you and me,

Birthdays are a blast from the past.

A place where memories are made

And friends become members of your cast.


Future birthdays come and go,

No choice in that, matter of fact.

The day we are born, birthdays are written in stone,

Part of our human contract!


So why do some people find despair,

When birthdays are meant to be celebrated and cared.

Birthdays should be given the respect they deserve,

Treated with tender loving care and with the world shared.

Julie Hebert

  1. Milestones

Birthdays at any age are meant to be engaged,

But a birthday twenty is worth a whole plenty.


Twenty-five through thirty-five, toasts can be very wordy,

Forty and forty-five, almost at fifty.


Looking forward to retirement at sixty and sixty-five,

Seventy through to 90, blessed to still be alive.


One hundred, very accomplished. So much seen and done,

This party cannot be overdone.


No matter the age, no matter the time,

You only get them once in a lifetime.


Julie Hebert
