When you start to see your youth fade,
And your looks have seen better days,
I’ll be here to say you’re sexy,
Even when your nose hair is gray.

You may not be over the hill,
But you say “in my day” too much,
When you’re not clubbing at Costco,
You’re napping right after brunch.

You may be older than you think,
But you still have lots more time,
Celebrate each and every day,
Just don’t nod off before nine.

My daddy is the strongest
Not because he can lift the heaviest

Always happy, never crude

I want to grow up to be the same man
Because I am my daddy’s biggest fan.

Having been through PMT and HRT.
You deserve an OBE and a PhD.

You’re a (60) year old wrinkle-ly.
Congrats, you’re now an OAP.

Happy Birthday !

You are antique,
We need to tweak,
Start with physique,
Let’s make you a geek,
Or just join a clique,
And become sleek,

With sublime mystique,
Surely unique,
I shouldn’t speak,
Quite often critique,
Courageous or meek,
Today is your peak,
Enjoy your week,
And stick out your cheek.

Poems For Mother

38.) “Untitled”

Are you an angel
Or a genie perhaps
You seem to have answers
To all of life’s traps
Are you a magician
Or a fairy in disguise
Troubles just wither away
When I look in your eyes
Maybe you are
An angel, genie, magician, fairy
All combined into one
Beautiful person called Mommy
Happy birthday

Mom you know the worst of me,
My weaknesses and follies,
I know you’ve seen me poop my pants

You know that I’m a nut,
So what can I do to repay your love..
…and make sure you keep your mouth shut!?

Mom you can
Read me as if I were a book

In real life, and on Pinterest
Mom, I just want to say
Happy birthday, wish a cute snuggle
You are trending
In my life, both virtual and real

a tire swing –

more than anything!

Happy Birthday Mommy, with Love!

42) “Month of May”

For all the diapers
that you changed,
For all the playdates
you arranged.

For all the trips
back and forth to school,
For cleaning all the spit up
and the drool.

Why is there only
one Mother’s Day?
You should have at least gotten
the ENTIRE month of May.

– Unknown

43.) “Birthday Invasion”

Here they come, with birthday cheer,
Bringing gifts just once a year,
People you don’t even like;
You really wish they’d take a hike.

This should be a glad occasion;
But it seems more like a SWAT invasion.
Go away! Just take a break!
Oh well, at least there’s birthday cake.

– Joanna Fuchs

44.) “You Love my Art”

Dear Mum…
I love that you loved all my “art”,
You told me it was beautiful,
You told me it was smart,

You loved my pottery and painting,
And my popsicle stick bridge,
But don’t you think it’s long enough ago now,
To take it off the fridge?

– Holly Giffers

45.) “Happy Birthday”

You may look a little older,
Sadly youth doesn’t come cheap,
So skip all those Botox parties,

Be glad you’re young at heart,
And still look as good as gold,
Too bad you’re not a millionaire,
And can’t put your looks on hold.

– Unknown

46.) “Untitled”

Are you an angel
Or a genie perhaps
You seem to have answers
To all of life’s traps

Or a fairy in disguise
Troubles just wither away
When I look in your eyes
Maybe you are
An angel, genie, magician, fairy
All combined into one
Beautiful person called ‘Mommy’
Happy birthday.

– Unknown

47.) “Untitled”

Mom, a birthday is a day to be lazy
Don’t clean up, just be crazy!
The years, they seem to multiply
Be happy to see your big day arrive.

On this day you can lounge in your pajamas
And take the time to watch all your TV dramas
Or, you just go walk on the beach
Don’t worry about the kids and what you’ll teach.

We all want to say you’re great
And, we can’t wait to celebrate
A Happy Birthday we wish for you
We love you and cherish you too!

– Unknown

48.) “Put Up With Me”

I’m glad that you’re my mother,
Kind and caring and strong.
Coz surely no-one else,
Could have put up with me this long!

Other Funny Birthday Poems

49.) “Can’t Remember”

I wish you something, just can’t remember,
Don’t be upset, you’re my family member.
It was clearly, on my mind,
With so many thoughts, it’s hard to find.

Maybe it’s simply not that essential,
Please lose that frown, you have so much potential.
On second thought, it might be coming back to me,
Now I know, why those brain pills were free.

Visions appear of colorful balloons,
In the background, I hear those fine tunes.
Near the end of the dream, I can taste a delicious cake,
It must be your birthday, as I awake.

– Martin Dejnicki

50.) “Untitled”

You might say we’re long in the tooth,
Eating chewy food is a nightmare,
We can’t sink our teeth into a steak,
Because they will just stay there.

Our aches and pains are worse,
We feel and look like hell,
BENGAY is now our BFF,
And the best cure for old man smell.

Sleeping through the night is tricky,
It’s now our Achilles’ heel,
Taking a nap anywhere helps,
Except when we’re behind the wheel.

We tend to forget names and faces,
Senior moments are now our friend,
We wish people wore name tags,
But we always forget to ask them.

– Unknown

51.) “Untitled”

Happy birthday to the cartoon I know,
You have so many stupid gestures to show,
Ok, don’t get bugged, I was kidding my dear,
Coz it’s your birthday, so spread the cheer,
Have the most amazing day of your life,
May god give me strength to survive,
With you..Lol!

– Unknown

52.) “Your Zoo”

A birthday should always be a joyous occasion,
Family and friends; obvious invasion.
Duplicate gifts, you don’t even like,
If you complain, might get a strike.

One simple day, placed on display,
Carefully observed, for signs of decay.
Dishonest smiles, they don’t mingle in truth,
As if you were the only, losing your youth.

At such a wise age, everything seems so clear,
Excuse to celebrate, they all came for beer.
Deep down inside, you know that they care,
Your Zoo is unique, normal is rare.

– Martin Dejnicki

53.) “Untitled”

On your birthday, let me sing a song
To lead the party and change your mood
You are 40’s now but still behaving like 4
You are craving for birthday cake
But wandering in party without any sake
May your birthday fixed in hall of fame
Don’t feel genius because you are still half baked.

– Unknown

54.) “Untitled”

I’ve been banned from having birthdays
A new rule has been made
Signed, sealed and delivered
By the local Fire Brigade!
They say that all those candles
Would create such a blaze
They’d have to come and put it out
And stay around for days !

So, I guess I’ll have to party
Without the birthday cake,
Perhaps I’ll light one candle
Just for old time’s sake,
Those firemen! So fit and strong,
Such handsome looking men –
Whose birthday is it, anyway?
Let’s light them all again!

– Unknown

55.) “Fun Birthday”

It’s your birthday, there is no cure,
Cakes and candles, you must endure,
Quick and painless, let me assure,
A tiny chance, you will be mature,
With this crowd, usually secure,
Random fun, with results obscure,
Liquids we drink, definitely pure,
Goofy friends, minds we tour,
Hilarious birthday, that’s for sure.

– Martin Dejnicki

56.) “Untitled”

Indeed, time flies
I hear it waits for no man
It must have waited for you in those silly years of yours
Now, when men die I just say I must be next inline
Awaiting my turn, for we know that’s the end
Graciously enough, we’ve got this time to say,
Happy Birthday, Man.

– Unknown

57.) “Untitled”

You now look so young like a youngster
Your ears still look smaller compared to your head
Though your arms still jiggle like Jello, Jeez!
And now that pimples had taken its location elsewhere
From your gorgeous face, I am so happy for you,
Happy birthday to the lady, my bestie,
who also cracks my ribs with peals of laughter

– Unknown

58.) “Untitled”

““Don’t eat meat’” the Doctor said
Yet our minds tell us, ‘but you are a mermaid’
Should that instruction affect us?
Let’s eat as many pieces of meat whilst we live
Ain’t no meat in the grave.
Happy Birthday, Foodie!

– Unknown

59.) “Perfect Gift”

Custom made, birthday gift,
Watch your back, as you lift.
Curiosity shall always win,
Random guesses; thick or thin.

Excitement reached, highest peak,
Hoping for a true antique.
You will like it, from the start,
Had to click that shopping cart.

Frantically rip, fancy wrapping tissue,
Mess created, not an issue.
Popping eyeballs; shocking surprise!
Perfect gift, in front of your eyes.

– Unknown

60.) “Untitled”

Around your birthday our kids cry
Around your birthday cake, fly die
Your hunger views just annoyed
While some kids begged to be enjoyed
Big problems we have include your health
It leads to problems of your wealth
While most of us are greedy for the cake
Too many of us became needy
We complain and cry without a hitch
Because here on Facebook, we only rich.

– Unknown

61.) “Untitled”

Here comes a calm sunset, after a blowy sun
Weather so beautiful to thrum a groovy tune
Such awe-inspiring vibes your birthday brings
So make the music let me dance and sing aloud
Happy birthday, dearest friend!
