Dear friend, let me say
something on this special day

and how we grew together,
stayed united in grief and laughter.

May your face always light up with glee.
I wish you never ever feel empty.
I pray, may God be always by your side.

My Friend,

On your special day
I quote Harold B. Lee

“May you have
Enough happiness to keep you sweet,
Enough trials to keep you strong,
Enough sorrow to keep you human,
Enough hope to keep you happy,
Enough failure to keep you humble,
Enough success to keep you eager,
Enough wealth to meet your needs,
Enough enthusiasm to look forward,
Enough friends to give you comfort,
Enough faith to banish depression,
Enough determination to make each day better than yesterday.”.
Happy Birthday!!

7. Happy Birthday, Far Away, Friend

Dear friend, I want to wish you a splendid happy birthday.
We don’t see each other anymore, but I hope everything is okay.
You’re growing to become the intelligent woman I know you can be.
I’m so fortunate to have a friend like you who’s gentle, loving, and sweet.

Today should be a day of pure happiness and love for you,
Enjoying and gathering with those who remain devoted and true.
I wish you the best in life, though we both know how hard it can be,
But I pray that God will open your doors to brighter opportunities.

You are the kind of person who always offers a helping hand.
We are miles away from each other, but the love we share will never end.
Never seeing you again will always be a difficult test,
But our everlasting friendship is what I will never forget.

I won’t forget about all the things you’ve brought to my years:
Long-lasting laughter and contenting cheers.
I never knew that all of these blessings could all come true,
But my life has been better, and it’s all because of you.

Wherever you are right now, I pray that you are happy and safe.
I don’t know your status, but I hope things are going your way.
I know for a fact that God will strengthen you and help you to be stronger.
I pray, my friend, that no weapon formed against you will prosper.

Thank you so much for your kindness, loyalty, and forgiveness.
You’ve promised me many times that I’ll never travel life without a witness.
So happy blessed birthday, my friend; thanks for being there for me.
I miss you deeply, but you’re always in my memories.

—Edarly Edouard

8. A Gift Of Friendship

Happy Birthday to my very best friend.
Your special day has come by again.
We had so much fun last time around.
A younger sister was someone I found.

Each year March 4th is a wonderful day,
As we march forth in our own fun way.
Just hanging around and laughing a lot;
It is truly amazing what we have got.

A friendship like ours is not easy to come by.
Often the intensity of it makes me so high.
Is our beautiful friendship really only a dream?
Sometimes it feels so unreal that I must scream.

Cries of joy and happiness galore,
And that is what I most adore.
Your infectious laughter and zest for life,
But I am there to keep you from strife.

How lucky we are to have found one another,
I couldn’t spend so much time with any other.
I will always be there to watch over you,
To keep you safe and happy too.

Well, my dear, I wish you Happy Birthday once more,
An abundance of good wishes for you are in store.
A new year filled with lots of happiness and laughter,
And only the very best for you from here on after.

Today is your special day
May all the dreams you do pursue
Be realized in every way.

A special person you are to me
You deserve the best of everything
So may this birthday and the coming year be
One that offers you the best that life may bring.

—Kate Summers

11. Birthday Wishes To A Friend

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.

12. Beauty And The Botox

Happy birthday!
You may look a little older,
Sadly youth doesn’t come cheap,
So skip all those Botox parties,
And just get your beauty sleep.

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.


13. 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.


14. Happy Birthday

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!

For I am truly running out of space.

But I ensure I’ll make it so true.

For genuine love and prayers, here I send.

16. 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

17. The Best Face

Happy birthday!

Your birthday is a joyous occasion,
For family and friends, a special day,
A time to tell you how good you look,
As we check you for signs of decay.

Our loving, caring smiles tell no lies,
Our flattery has but a grain of truth,
When we say you look like a teen,
We mean you’re losing your youth.

Nobody gets out of here a beauty,
That should be clear at your stage,
Deep down inside, you know it’s true,
Even the best faces sag with age.

21. Dear Friend

I’ve spoken many lies.
I’ve broken many promises.
I’ve picked up many fights.
I’ve given you bad memories.
Yet, through this chaos.
By my side, you’ve stood strong.
Backing me all the time
Even when you know, I was wrong
What did I do to deserve
Such a loyal friend, I have no clue
But one thing’s for sure, my life
Is nothing without you
Happy birthday
