Birthday Poems for a Friend
Poems to Write in a Friend's Birthday Card
Friends enrich our lives in a necessary way. We get entertained, comforted, and inspired by these special people. True friendship is priceless and can't be bought. When a friend has a birthday, we get an excuse to say thank you in a fun way.
Birthday poems are a great way to wish a friend a happy birthday. These birthday poems are short enough for you to easily write one in a birthday card. If you need a longer poem, combine a couple or add your own lines to extend one of these.
Ways to Present the Birthday Poem to Your Friend
These are some creative and unique ways to use your birthday poem.
- Read it as a toast to your friend at the birthday party.
- Give your friend one line of the poem at a time. For example, every 3 hours you can post a line to create a series of Facebook birthday wishes.
- Write a melody to the poem, and sing it to your friend.
- Post a graphic of the poem to his or her Facebook page.
- Create a photo book with some of your favorite memories. Include a poem every few pages.
- Create a coffee much with your poem about being a friend.
- Make a bookmark with the poem written on it. Then your friend can think about you when he or she reads.
Friend Birthday Poems
"Your Age to Be Bold"
Age doesn't make you old
You don't fit into that mold
You're as valuable as gold
Do more than you're told
Don't let your feet get cold
This is your time to be bold
"If You Were"
If you were peanut butter, I'd be jelly
If you were a loud noise, I'd be smelly
If you were a bakery, I'd be a deli
If you were a calorie, I'd be your belly
"My Poetic Rhymes"
Today as you get older
Remember all the good times
Remember all the laughing
And excuse my silly rhymes
"A Friend Like You"
A friend like you is rare
We make a great pair
Today your age grew
But I'm still fond of you
"A Birthday Hug Poem"
Cross your arms; touch your shoulders
Then squeeze yourself real snug
There my friend I gave to you
My most special birthday hug

"The Aging Game"
Happy birthday my dearest friend
And here's to many more
Each year as you get older
Someone is keeping score
One more for you; one more for me
But still it stays the same
You my friend are older
When we play the aging game
"Can't Afford to Call"
I hope you have a party
I hope you have a ball
My friend I hope you like this card
I can't afford to call
"Happy Birthday to a Friend"

Brings love and fun your way
Every birthday marks another year
That you have lived upon this Earth
And all your friends who know you
Were blessed so with your birth
"Cake and Candles"
Birthday cake and candles
Will mark your special day
And so please make your wish
To have a happy day
Best wishes for your birthday
And through the coming year
For that is when I think of you
And hold our friendship dear

Birthdays should be joyous times
Surrounded with friends galore
I hope that your birthday
Is all of that and more
