Friend Birthday Poems
Verse #1

My friend
Many years ago
I fell in like with you
And I’m still head over heels in like with you

A further test of our friendship….
How many people could I say that to
Without fear of being misunderstood?

Friends are God’s way of taking care of us.,
Thank God I’ve got you

Many people will walk in,
And out of my life,,
But only a true friend like you,
Will leave footprints in my heart.,


Friends are quiet angels who lift us to our feet,
when our wings have trouble remembering how to fly.


A friend is someone who walks in,
when the whole world has walked out.,
you’re my walker-in,

And I’m so glad to know you,
Happy Birthday


Side by side
Or miles apart,,
A good friend like you,
Is always close to the heart.,


A friend is one of the nicest things you can have,
and one of the best things you can be. ,

Friends are those rare people who ask how you are
And then wait for the answer.
I’m fine
How are you?


If you’re alone, I’ll be your shadow.
If you want to cry, your shoulder I’ll be.
If you want a hug, I’ll be your pillow.
But if you need a friend, I’ll just be me.

Christmas Friend Poems Verses Quotes

Christmas poem suitable for absent friends 1

Thinking of you
Makes the miles disappear,
Together we’re looking at bright decorations,
Enjoying what we like to do,
Thinking of you makes the miles disappear~
For you’re missed very much
All year through…

Friend Christmas verse 2

So just because you’re
Far away, don’t think
For a moment that you’re forgotten.
I’m thinking about you because loving thoughts travel far,
And wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a New Year
Full of wonderful things.
Wish we could be together.


Christmas poem friend 3

Some of the happiest times of my life
Are times you and I spend together.
For deep in my heart I’ve considered you special-
One of my dearest friends ever…

Time after time I’ve enjoyed your nice company,
Warmed by your closeness we share,
And when there were days
That I needed encouragement,
I knew you’d always be there…

Time and again I’ve been ever so grateful
For having a good friend like you-
A friend for all times,
To confide in, to count on, and treasure
A whole lifetime through.

You’re a friend
For all times
and especially at Christmas

Friendship Birthday Poems

13th birthday poems

Teenagers Huh!

Thirteen years have passed
Oh how it went so fast
I’m not sure where the times gone
When I think of all the things we’ve done
At first I taught you how to talk
Then I taught you how to walk
Before I knew it you could run
Oh it was all so much fun
But you’re no longer my little pup
Look at you all grown up
I’m proud of the person you’ve become
But to me, you’ll always be my little’un

18th Birthday Poems

A Man at Last

Eighteen years have passed
And here you are a man at last
Just think of the things you’re now allowed to do
Like legally vote and buy cigarettes too
There’s quite a few movies you’re allowed to watch
But I guess you’ve already seen the lot
There is one thing that’s still out of touch
Buying alcohol that’s what

21st birthday poems

Big Ole 21

Today’s the big one
The day you turn 21
So here’s some advice for you my son
When you come home a little worse for wear
Try to be quite when you climb the stairs
Cuz if your mom catches you in that state
I won’t be able to guarantee your fate
Oh and I’ve cancelled Disney channel OK
You’re too old for it now anyway
So happy birthday my son
Here’s to the next twenty one

40th birthday poem

Forty Years Young

When you wake up this morning
Your bones might begin to ache
A wrinkle or two might have appeared across your weary face
But forget about all that, because today’s a special day
Today’s the day your life will change in every way

Your thirties have all but gone
And a new era has begun
No more getting down at the local rave
You’re just going to have to behave
Because now you’re officially middle aged
