“Wait,” you might be thinking Birthday poems?
Yes, birthday poems are a beloved tradition, even if they don’t follow the traditional “poetry slam” style. Whether they take the form of a birthday song or a heartfelt message in a card, birthday poems are a great way to show your friends you care.
Whether you’re a seasoned poet or someone looking to surprise your friend on their special day, these ideas can help you pick the perfect words for your friend’s birthday.
There’ve been fights aplenty
There’ve been massive arguments
There’ve been times when we didn’t talk
There’ve been dark moments
From smiles to tears
From happiness to strife
Friendship isn’t an easy ride, but I
Wouldn’t trade it for anything else in life
I have many friends,
But one above the rest,
That one is you,
You are simply the best.
It’s a friend like you,
In good times and bad,
Who asks for nothing,
Yet offers a hand.
Wherever I go in life,
There’s only one thing to do,
I must have a big heart,
And be a friend like you.
A friend like you is a gift from God,
Tough to find at home or abroad.
You were a great support and wiped away my tears,
What would I have done without you all these years.
Dear friend, on your birthday,
I send the best of wishes to make you happy in every way.
Happy Birthday Dear!

Best Friend Birthday Poems
Birthdays are a celebration of another year passing, and you can highlight that in a birthday poem for a friend. Whether you’re cracking wise about them being “over the hill”, or simply saying that you’ve cherished your time with them this year and wishing them many happy returns, this is a simple yet effective topic for writing a best friend birthday poem.
Happy birthday my best friend,
Amazing times, we always spend.
Laughter and jokes are common place,
Since we built that solid base.
Special friend that I hold dear,
Always wish to have you near.
We get along, like bread with honey,
A friendship worth, much more than money.
If you stumble, count me there,
Gratitude; no need to declare.
Your thoughts are clear, in my mind,
Understanding we always find.
Happy birthday my best friend,
I’m excited to attend.
This birthday poem, is just for you,
A great big smile is overdue.
by Martin Dejnicki
Today must be your birthday because the sun is shinning bright
The clouds that are usually hiding it are now nowhere in sight
The birds are singing joyfully as they go happily on their way
It’s as if Mother Nature herself knew this was a very special day
The day before was gloomy and the weather was pretty bad
But on this day it all went away and now I don’t feel so sad
My sadness was replaced with happiness that wasn’t there before
Your birthday does this every year so I hope you’ll have many more
Every year it has been this way since the day of your sweet birth
And it’s this day that makes me appreciate my time down here on earth
My friendship with you grows each year and I feel a special bond
And when this day no longer shines I will know that you are gone
by Gordon Duquette
If I knew you and you knew me,
If both of us could clearly see,
And with an inner sight divine,
The meaning of your heart and mine.
I’m sure that we would differ less,
And clasp our hands in friendliness.
Our thoughts would pleasantly agree,
If I knew you and you knew me.
I’m so glad we know each other.
By Nixon Waterman

You can create a poem based off a hilarious story from the past year, an inside joke, or even something that will create a new tradition! As long as it’s entertaining and kind, you’re sure to have a hit on your hands.
It’s official – you’ve lived one more year,
You’re birthday gifted and caked,
But don’t think you’re fully mature,
Because you’re really only half-baked!
With you by my side
A dark night becomes a bright dawn
Without you, even the best of days
Become boring and full of yawns
Your effect on my life
Is way too profound to describe
All I know is that best friends like us
Are a very rare tribe
Twitter, is where the celebs hang out
Facebook, is the most popular social network
Reddit, is the face of the internet
But you, make my life tick like clockwork
Instagram, is where the selfies are slaying it
Google, is where life’s answers are found
YouTube, is where stars of tomorrow are born
But you, are what makes my world go round

So many people live around you,
But not all get close to your heart.
Some become so dear
That with their thoughts, its beating starts.
You are the one to whom
I’ll give my care to the most.
Your absence makes me feel in life
As if everything is completely lost.
Your birthday was in my mind,
Wishes though I couldn’t convey.
There were so many hurdles
Standing tall in the way.
I have prayed for your good life
And mental peace with good health.
The rest of things are just temporary,
Only these will be your real wealth.
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’ll always drop by, to say Happy Birthday
Do you remember the time?
Trekked forests; mountains climb.
Witnessed gorgeous sight,
Friendship smiles, true delight.
Made it through, many years,
Mutually conquered, deepest fears.
Trials, tested, on occasion,
Inner struggles, surprise invasion.
Growth and change, rarely predict,
Our friendship, time has picked.
Moments frozen; timeless bond,
A birthday wish shines beyond.
