65 Birthday Poems For Son

These beautiful lyrics or stanzas are a true expression of what your son means to you and highlights the unique bond you share with him.

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

2. My Heart Desire

Happy birthday, my dear son!
Today’s a major milestone in your life!
It’s a new year of your existence already.

Open wide doors of God’s favor
And abundance of all your heart desires.
Happy birthday, son.

Your birthday takes us back to the day when you were born,
Like a little angel, you opened your eyes, your beauty it adorned.
You looked at us and gave us a smile that was so divine,
Even in the darkness, your bright smile would shine.
Today when we look at you, the smile is still the same,
So are the lovely set of eyes from heaven that came.
But even more than your physical beauty is your heart,
As for your mind, it is concerned, son, you’re ultrasmart!
Happy Birthday to our darling son.

Because no matter what you do
For us, you will always be number one.

Feeling to always stay.
We wish for you to have
A very happy birthday.

39. Life Would Be Incomplete

Life would be incomplete.
It would have spelt defeat.
Life would be unworthy.

If it weren’t for your loving
Life would be insipid.
If you were not my kid

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!

42. Happy Birthday Dear Son

You’re the best a parent could ask for
With all the love that you bring

And you know it’s returned to you
Because love is a two way thing

So may happiness be with you always
And may all your dreams come true

Because you’re a Son in a million
And we think the world of you

Happy Birthday Dear Son

43. 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!

44. Son

My son, you are my world
No matter where you are or what you do,
I will be proud of you
It’s what I want you to know.

But I will never leave you
Success will come you see
When we make the effort to beat all odds
That keeps us from rising ahead
Today is a very special day
Have fun and celebrate
Laughter be there on your way.
Happy Birthday!

45. 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.

46. My Love

To my son who is filled with grace,
In my heart, you will always have
The most significant place.
Although time passes by
And gives me more white than black hair
I will always love you
Deeply as I first saw you on my arms
Happy birthday, dear.

47. 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

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!

With you, life feels always under control,
With your growth, my love grows more,
In my heart, a bond that I cherish and adore

49. 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.

50. Happy Birthday, Son

Two decades of your existence it’s been
I can imagine all the things you might have seen
The pleasures, the horror
The calm times, the terror
I’m younger than you in age
So of course I’m no sage
But I hope you become a credit to our world
So those heroes of old may give you an approving nod.

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!

52. 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!

54. 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!

55. I’ve Always Loved You, Son

From the moment I looked into your eyes,
I knew that I was never going to be the same again.
You held my gaze, not once looking away
as you reached out to grip my finger.

I knew then that I would never let you go.
I have fallen in and out of love many times,
but I could never fall out of love with you.

You, my dear, were part of me before
I knew you by your name.
Anitha Devi Pillai

56. 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!

57. Have A Great Birthday Party

There aren’t any words to describe the happiness I feel today.
You make my life easy and happy like none other!
I recall the times when you were sitting on my lap and saying your first words.
Now, it seems like yesterday, but at the same time, you’ve grown so big.

59. 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!

60. Muddy Footprints Long Ago

Muddy footprints through the house,
Football at the door,
Racing round upon your bike,
Clothes strewn across the floor,
Those simple days have long since gone,
Now a man is who I see,
So I hope this special birthday,
Turns out just perfectly.
