Birthday Poems for a 12-Year-Old
While Childhood Lasts
Teenage years are on their way
There's no need to grow up too fast
Please make your innocence stay
Have fun while your childhood lasts
Take a Bow
You don't have to be grown-up
But you can do great things now
Drink responsibly from your cup
Eat birthday cake and take a bow
Don't worry too much about doing it wrong
You won't be twelve-years-old for very long
