God gave a gift to the world when you were born—
a person who loves, who cares,

return to you, multiplied.

Funny Guy

My funny guy, when I look at you,
Making faces, as you do,
To make me giggle, and keep me happy,
When I’m feeling down or sad or crappy,

To just be silly, instead of tough
To give me gladness, bliss and joy,
That’s my man; that’s my big boy.

Happy birthday to the man
Who makes me laugh, because he can.

50th Birthday Poems

Birthday greetings for that big half century mark are popular. This 50th birthday poem celebrates that event.

The Big Five-Oh

So you are finally fifty;
Happy birthday on the big Five-Oh.
I guess you could fill a great big book
With everything you know.

A whole half century of living
Is nothing to sneeze about,
So if you’re a little patched and worn,
Don’t you dare frown or pout.

Ignore things that make you feel old;
It’s really great to be fifty.
You’re smart, attractive and good company,
And I still think you’re nifty!

There are lots of searches for a birthday prayer, so I wrote a birthday poem that is also a birthday blessing. If the person is “him,” change “her” to “him.”

A Birthday Prayer

Her birthday comes but once a year;
Lord, fill her day with joy and cheer;
This person who’s so very dear,
Take care of her and keep her near.

Dear Lord in heaven, bless this day;
Protect this loved one, come what may;
Love her in your special way;
In Jesus’ precious name I pray.
Amen.
