6. Reason — Anonymous
One more birthday
One more reason
Yet another motive
One more occasion
One more sweet cause
Another special event
One more instance
Yet another special moment
To celebrate our friendship
And our togetherness
May the coming year
Bring you lots of happiness
7. What a Day — Kevin Nishmas
What a day to be happy,
And smile the whole way through,
Today is your big birthday,
A special one just for you.
Blow out all your candles,
Make your wishes come true,
Eat slice after slice of cake,
Nothing is too good for you.
8. Friendship — Anonymous
Our friendship has no shape
It can not be measured with a tape
Our friendship flows like water
It adapts according to, the situation and matter
Our friendship tastes like cake
It is sweet, cute, and never fake
Our friendship feels genuine and true

I wish you luck for you and your friends;

your troubles as light as its foam.
And may you find, sweet peace of mind,
where ever you may roam.
10. Age Is Just a Number — Kevin Nishmas
Your age is just a number,
It is really not all that big,
You have seen a few decades,
Since you were just a kid.
But you do not look your age,
You beat the middle-age spread,
Your face glows like 1,000 stars,
And you can still turn heads.
Best wishes and Happy Birthday!
Funny Birthday Poems for Friends
11. Untitled — Joanna Fuchs
On your birthday, it is time to reflect,
For the passing of time leads to change.
What once was important we leave; our priorities and goals rearrange.
It is official; you have lived one more year.
You are birthday gifted and caked,
But do not think you are fully mature, ‘cause you are really only half-baked!
12. Midnight Pizza — Kevin Nishmas
You are still a teenager at heart,
Eating in your bed is routine,
Early-bird dinners are not your style,
Midnight pizza is more your scene.
No one has a right to call you old,
You can still pass for middle-aged,
All your parts hurt but still work,
With the right nip, tuck, and dosage.
You have never looked so young,
Your head's still hairier than your ears,
Your arms do not jiggle like Jello,
And zits still reduce you to tears.
13. Long in the Tooth — Kevin Nishmas
You might say we are long in the tooth,
Eating chewy food is a nightmare,
We can not 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 is now our Achilles' heel,
Taking a nap anywhere helps,
Except when we are behind the wheel.
We tend to forget names and faces,
Senior moments are now our friends,
We wish people wore name tags,
But we always forget to ask them.
14. My Scooby Snack — Deandré Haughton
You are like a Scooby snack,
And I am your Scooby-Doo,
You are trapped in a haunted house,
And I want to save you,
I know I can find you fast,
I just have to follow the clues,
Because you are my Scooby snack,
And I am your Scooby-Doo.
Happy Birthday to Rooooo!
15. There Are Worse Things — Kevin Nishmas
So what if you are getting older,
There are worse things to be,
Like a goofy, pimply teenager,
With zero self-esteem.
So what if you got a few wrinkles,
There are worse things to have,
Like the case of the twentysomethings,
And a room at Mom and Dad's.
To me, you are simply wonderful.
Everything about you is just right,
So have a happy birthday,
And let us party all night.
Inspirational Birthday Poems for Friends
16. What I Can See — Kevin Nishmas
I wish you saw what I can see,
I see a heart so full of love,
I see eyes so hopeful and wise,
And I know what you are made of.
I wish you saw what I can see,
I see promise a mile long,
I see unvisited, distant strength,
And I know in you travels a song.
I wish you saw what I can see,
I see it is not yet real for you,
But I see what I see as your fate,
And I know one day you will see it too.
17. Birthday Wishes — Unknown
Wishes made on birthdays
Always come true
That is why I wish
The very best for you
I hope that you achieve
Everything you seek
There should never be a moment
In your life, sad or bleak
I wish that you soar to new heights
And wade into uncharted territory
For you know well, that you can
Always fall back on me
18. Now's a Great Age — Kevin Nishmas
Now is a great age to take chances,
And do all you want to do,
Your creativity knows no bounds,
What you need is right in you.
Your wisdom is wiser than ever,
Your spirit is bolder than bold,
Your humor is more humorous,
There is just no time to be old.
Happy Birthday, lovely friend!
19. XOXO — Anonymous
On your birthday, I want to make a promise
Any celebration of your life, I will never miss
I also want to let you know
During tough times, I will never ever let go
I also want to express
That I wish you nothing but success
And no matter where I am, come what may
I will always drop by, to say Happy Birthday
20. You Can Do It — Kevin Nishmas
I know you can do it,
If you would only try,
It is mind over matter,
There is no better high.
You must forget yourself,
And let go of what is dear,
You will see beyond the noise,
You will conquer your fear.
If you are afraid to fail,
Know you are not alone,
Even the brave fight fear,
We all dread the unknown.
But you truly stand out,
The world needs what you bring,
When it is your turn to shine,
Reach out for the brass ring.
Climb the wall before you,
Build a bridge to cloud nine,
Unsteady ground you will tread,
It will be worth your time.

To be your friend, not your enemy
Fate had already decided for us both
To like each other, never loathe
Best friends, we were meant to be
You are my life, can you not see?

Today is your special day!

Cool Happy Birthday Poems for Best Friend
26. Have a Happy Birthday — Catherine Pulsifer
Friends come and go
But you my friend
Have stuck with me
But we are not to the end.
You may be getting older
And a bit wiser too
But I know your age,
But do not let that get you blue.
You may be a bit slower,
You may see wrinkles too
But my friend that will
Never stop you.
Your hair is turning colors,
Is it silver or gray?
Just have a Happy Birthday!
27. B-I-R-T-H-D-A-Y — Kevin Nishmas
Be the best you can be,
Imagine what you can do,
Remember who you are,
There is nobody like you,
Honor your past,
Dwell on your heart,
All you need is love,
Your birthday is a start.
28. In a Blink — Catherine Pulsifer
My friend just think
The last year went by in a blink
Today marks another birthday
Feels like a year passed in a day!
We celebrate you today
We wish you happiness every day
Friends like you deserve applause
Sometimes we wish the years to pause.
The years may pass,
But our friendship will last
Age really does not matter
We always will laugh and chatter.
Happy Birthday, my friend, you are a dear
We will sing for all to hear
Wishing you all the best
As a friend, you are the greatest!
29. Be Epic — Kevin Nishmas
May your birthday be epic,
May you never settle for less,
May your special day be special,
May you be blessed with the best.
May your dreams never die,
May your wishes come true,
May your birthday be ageless,
May you be born anew.
30. Dearest Friend — Unknown
What I am today is not
My doing alone
There is another reason
For the way in which I have grown
How my life has shaped up
Owes itself to many things
One of them being you
A best friend, who has given me wings
My life is incomplete
Without your contribution
That is my toast to you
