Into the future, together we will go,

Today is your 60th birthday.
And it’s a marvelous milestone.
I hope this day fills you with all the beautiful memories of yesterday
You have come a long way
You have covered so many glorious miles
And lit countless faces with smiles
May happiness be your companion as you celebrate this special day.


5. Here’s to 60 more

Welcome to being 60!
You’ve reached a special point.
Some will never make it to,
But you didn’t disappoint.

You’ve conquered many an obstacle.
You’ve achieved many a dream.
You’re greying at the temples.
And your eyes still have a gleam.

You’re entering another phase,
It’s one you’ll love the most.
An amazing time of freedom!
So I’d like to make a toast…

To a man that we all know
And who all of us adore,
Congratulations on your 60 years,
And here’s to many more.


6. Happy 60th birthday!

Here’s to your big day, my very special friend,
Enjoy it while it’s here
Because you’ll have to wait ten years
For your next milestone year.

Thinking back on sixty, you’ll
Turn back that mental clock
The grand young age will seem so nice
And seventy a shock.

“I was really limber then,”
You’ll say to everyone.

See, sixty is the prime of life
At least, from this point on.


7. Happy 60th Mommy

Even at this age
You are full of elegance
Teeming with inner beauty
That has permanence
Even at this age
You are full of verve
Your vivacity is what
You have managed to preserve
Even though one day
You will turn eighty
I want you to always
Stay like this, dear mommy
Happy 60th birthday!


8. On your Sixtieth year!

Happy Birthday to you!
On your Sixtieth year!
It’s time to celebrate,
And to spread the cheer!
You are amazing, kind, and wise!
No one could top you even if they tried!
Happy Birthday to a special person on her 60th Birthday!

There are 60 candles on your cake.
What kind of wish will you make?
Are you going to soak up the sun?
Or just roam the world having fun?
No matter what you decide to do.
Just remember how much I love you.
Happy Birthday!


10. Six decade journey

An invitation to a six-decade journey,
To disclose all the details, I’d need my attorney.
With memories of distant moments in time,
From zero to sixty, one heck of a climb.

Without you, all my joys, I could not proclaim,
For you have added, to my eternal flame.
As our inner seasons, extensively ranged,
Listening and advice we gladly exchanged.

Hope to continue on a thrilling new trip,
Bring plenty of faith onto the ship.
We won’t sail away until all are aboard,
Future experiences, click and record.

—Martin Dejnicki

11. Just a number

Sixty is more than just a number, you see.
You’ll also start to notice that creaky knee.
And when you drive.
People will begin to wonder if they’ll survive.
Even though your age grows yearly
But we still love you dearly.
Your eyes sparkle with that special gleam.
And you’ve helped us all achieve our dream.
Because we love you the most,
I wanted to give you this little birthday boast.

— Unknown

12. 60th birthday poem

Sixty years of life you have had to live.
Sixty years of love you have had to give.
You are a man who always keeps his word.
You listen with your heart, never leaving one’s words unheard.
A blessing you are to all that you meet.
Kind you are to everyone, which is a difficult feat.
You are a gentleman with a beautiful soul.
You have filled my mother’s heart which was once broken but now whole.
Thank you for being a man a girl can always trust.
Thank you for showing me respect isn’t a maybe, but a must.
You are a man of faith, love, and sound mind.
You are a man who holds the qualities that, in others, are hard to find.
I am beyond blessed to call you “step” dad.
As I am equally blessed to have memories of the great times we’ve had.
Thanks for being you – Richard Thomas Shea.
What more can I say than, Happy Birthday!

—Meredith Chapman

Sixty, and loving it

Image: IStock

I’m excited and filled with pride.
As I progress and keep with life’s stride.
Not only was it worth the trip,
Although the journey held many tricks.
Because each one seems to bring me closer
To my dream of getting over
Every obstacle and challenge presented,
Causing me to reach sixty and to love it.
As you age, you finally see
Sixty is the place to be.

—Tim Seeger

14. Happy 60th birthday

Being sixty is not so bad
you are still alive so just be glad
You can laugh and sing or scream with rage
And people say it’s just your age
you laugh until you need the loo
And then you pray there is no queue
you start to lose your teeth and hair
But you’re still alive, so you don’t care
Life up to now is a job well done
So now you’re Sixty, it’s time for fun.


15. Happy 60th birthday

You are still a teenager at heart

Image: IStock

So you’re turning 60
What can I say?
You look pretty good,
Even with a touch of grey

Your eyes are still blue
You’re still kind and mellow,
Your smile is just as infectious
Even if your teeth are yellow.

They say 60 is the new 50ish,
You say 60 is as good as gold.
But no matter how you glitter,
Your nuggets are still getting old.


16. Happy birthday, friend

You’re 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 a middle aged,
All your parts hurt but still work,
With the right nip, tuck and dosage.

You have never looked so young,
Your head is still hairier than your ears,
Your arms don’t jiggle like jello,
And zits still reduces you to tears.

Happy 60th Birthday, my friend.


17. Happy 60th Birthday, good buddy

Happy 60th birthday, good buddy.
How are you dealing with your awful debility,
lessened utility and loss of mobility?

There’s a strong possibility, indeed a probability
That you’ll lose your virility and your desirability.
And this liability of total sterility will lead to hostility
And a sense of futility
So, today, act with agility while you still have facility,
For you’ll soon reach senility and lose the ability.
No really
There’s no need to thank me.
What are friends for?

– Jon Bratton

18. You are too old yet too young

You are too old
For throwing a party
You are too young
To pass the day smugly
You are too old
To wear a birthday cap
You are too young
To celebrate within a nap
Such is the dilemma
Of being sixty
Welcome to the age
Of perplexity


19. Become a big boy

You have finally
Become a big boy
Let’s raise a toast
To this happiness and joy
Now you can say
That you are mature
About that, even though
We are not yet too sure
But all this doesn’t matter
For when you are sixty
You can behave like a child
As carefree as you can be.
Happy 60th birthday!


20. Turning 60 feels

There are many benefits
Of turning sixty
You can become forgetful
Or careless and sloppy
Without having any worry
Of being criticized
That is the reason sixty
It is an age which is so prized.
Happy 60th birthday.


21. Forever Adventurous

May your soul be forever adventurous

May your soul be
Forever adventurous
May your state of mind be
Always joyous
May your inner beauty be
Free of wrinkles
May your spirit be
Free of crinkles
Happy 60th birthday!
