1. Happy Birthday, Dear Son

For me, you are brighter than the sun,
And lovelier than the moon.

Today you got a year older,
Only making me wonder,
How you could grow so fast,
With cute memories flying past.

Most times, you seem to be matured,
But sometimes, you are a terrible pain to be endured.

I can see you are abundantly intelligent,
That’s why my heart aches when you are negligent.
Your talent should not go wasted,

For that, you need to be dedicated and motivated.
You are a God’s gift, all packed into one.— BN

There will come a day.
When you will get wings of your own
You will start seeing life’s realities.
In a way that you had never known
The world is a nasty place, my son.
But you can make it better.
Don’t succumb to the negativity.
Instead, just keep flying higher.
Rise above and show ‘em how it’s done
Because no matter what you do
For us, you will always be number one.
Happy birthday!

We don’t know if we can call ourselves
Parents who are perfect in every way
But we are sure that we can call you
A son, who amazes day after day
We are not certain if we have achieved
Everything we wanted to so far
But all our shortcomings are negated
Because of the awesome son that you are
Happy birthday.

15. When You Smile

When you smile
A rainbow forms across my heart
When you laugh
My soul melts like a gooey tart

My heart starts to burn
You are that precious
To me, my dear son
Your presence in my life
Can be compared to none.
Happy birthday.

You are the joy
That grows in our hearts each day.
You are the bliss
For which we are thankful in every way

That shows us our life’s worth
You are the fun
That ensures sorrow’s dearth
You are the happiness
That comes only to a lucky few
Dear son, we are fortunate
To have a child like you.
Happy birthday!

17. If All Parents

If all parents
Had a son like you
They would be able
To feel our emotions too.
The feeling of euphoria
The sentiment of joy
To be blessed for having
Such an awesome boy.
We pray to God for this
Feeling to always stay.
We wish for you to have
A very happy birthday.

18. Life Would Be Incomplete

Life would be incomplete.
It would have spelt defeat.
Life would be unworthy.
It would mean nothing to me.
Life wouldn’t be promising.
If it weren’t for your loving
Life would be insipid.
If you were not my kid
Happy birthday son!

19. You Have No Idea About

You have no idea about
How much you mean
To your mother and me
How fortunate we have been
How blessed you’ve made our lives
Of that, you have no clue
All I can say is that we are
Lucky to have a son like you
Happy birthday!

20. From Video Games To Fancy Smartphones

From video games to fancy smartphones
You have grown up quick
From baggy short to chic suits
You have learnt the trade and the tricks
But there is one thing that is still the same
From the time you were a boy
That every time you smile and laugh
Bring us endless amounts of joy
Happy birthday!

21. Dear Son…

Dear son…
May your life turn out to be
Cute and colorful
Just like your birthday balloons
That look so beautiful
May your life always present
Opportunities that are enticing
Just like your birthday cake that has
A delicious cream icing
May you always have many friends
Like the ones invited to your party
Just like your mood on your birthday
May you always be happy
Happy birthday!

22. Do You Remember When

Do you remember when
We used to play with a Frisbee
And when we took road trips
To enjoy picturesque journeys
Do you remember when
We went camping and hiking
And then when we got tired of it
We settled with some laid-back fishing
These are my most precious memories
Of all the dad and son times we had
In a way, I am happy that you have grown up
But from inside, I am also a little sad.
Happy birthday sonny.

23. Dear Son… There’s So Much Love

Dear son…
There’s so much love for you that I store
But there is always place for more
So don’t expect that I will ever
Stop fussing over you, my dear
As you walk along life’s journey
All I want to say to you, sonny
Is that no matter how old you grow
All I need to feel happy is the sound of your hello.
Happy birthday!

24. The Day You Were Born

The day you were born.
And lay curled up in your mother’s arms.
That very moment
We succumbed to all your charms.
Nothing has changed
From that day to this one
I hope it always stays this way.
Happy birthday, our dear son.

25. My Dear Son

Dear son…
People look for riches
And treasures in every corner
But I am one lucky fellow
Whose wealth is right here
My well-being and affluence
Comes from being your dad
If not for you, this prosperity
I would never have had.
Happy birthday!

26. There Can Never Be a Tear On My Cheek

There can never be a tear on my cheek
Because you will wipe it before it can fall
There can never be a reason to feel low
Because you will help me stand tall
There can never be a frown on my face
Because you will convert it into a grin
There can never be a moment of unhappiness
Because you will help me hold up my chin
Can there ever be anyone like you?
I don’t think so
You are the best son in the world.
Is all that I want you to know.
Happy birthday!

27. In Spite Of Our Differences

In spite of our differences
In spite of our arguments
To remember you from my heart
I have never lost a single moment.
In spite of our incessant fights
In spite of our misunderstandings
There hasn’t been a single second
That I haven’t stopped reminiscing
About the dear son that you
Have been to me no matter what.
The way you’ve always respected me
No matter how much we’ve fought.
Happy birthday, son!

28. The Only Thing

The only thing that a mother wishes for
On her son’s birthday
Is that he remains happy in life
And always has his way.
The only thing that a father wishes for
On his son’s birthday
Is that he always gets what he wants
And never faces dismay.
In short, as parents, we both wish
That you have an awesome life ahead
Rather than just fit in with the crowd
We wish you stand out instead.
Happy birthday!

29. Today, When I Saw Your Facebook Wall

Today when I saw your Facebook wall
I really had a ball
I always thought that you were shy
But gee, you are one popular guy
Girls are all over you.
And you are flirting back with them too
Son, when did you grow up so much
Of time, I seem to have lost touch
When did you become a man from a boy?
Thinking about it gives me immense joy
Happy birthday!

30. We Don’t Like Showing Off

We don’t like showing off.
The house, the car, or other belongings
We don’t like showing off.
All the expensive things
What we do like showing off though
Is one wonderful person
Because of whom life is worth living
Dear son, you are the one.
Happy birthday.

31. I Hope Your Year Ahead Is Full Of Good Things

I hope your year ahead is full of good things.
I hope that all your dreams get wings.
I hope for you, there is tons of good luck in store.
I hope this year brings you happiness galore.
In whatever you chose to do
May success always be next to you.
As you begin an awesome birthday celebration
I wish you a happy birthday, my son.
