  1. Birthday Greetings To You
    by Catherine Pulsifer, © 2015

    This is the anniversary of the day you were born
    There is no reason for you to scorn
    A day for a party, presents and gifts
    We hope this day gives you a lift

    Always remember age is only a date
    And you determine your own fate
    I wish you happiness and joy in life
    And many more birthdays to bring you delight



  2. A Birthday Wish
    Poet: John Imrie

    Birthday greetings now I send,
    Full of gladness, love, and joy,
    May this year, my loving friend,
    Bring thee peace without alloy;
    Keep this token as a charm.
    Proof of Friendship ever dear,
    Fain would I shield thee from harm
    All this happy golden year!



  3. Birthday Thoughts
    Poet: Unknown

    AT twenty-five — at twenty-five,
    The heart should not be cold;
    It still is young in deeds to strive,
    Though half life's tale be told;
    And Fame should keep its youth alive,
    If Love would make it old.

    But mine is like that plant which grew
    And wither'd in a night,
    Which from the skies of midnight drew
    Its ripening and its blight —
    Matured in Heaven's tears of dew,
    And faded ere her light.

    Its hues, in sorrow's darkness bom,
    In tears were foster'd first;
    Its powers, from passion's frenzy drawn,
    In passion's gloom were nurs'd —
    And perishing ere manhood's dawn.
    Did prematurely burst

    Yet all I've learnt from hours rife
    With painful brooding here
    Is that, amid this mortal strife.
    The lapse of every year
    But takes away a hope from life,
    And adds to death a fear.


  4. Wishing You
    Poet Unknown

    Here's wishing you a birthday
    That's happy through and through
    For you're so nice, that's just the kind
    That you're entitled to!



  5. Once A Year
    by Catherine Pulsifer, © 2020

    Birthdays come but once a year
    A time for fun and lots of cheer
    For some they fear the day
    They don't want to get old and gray.

    Your age truly matters not
    What matters is your thoughts
    Live each day and celebrate life
    Stay positive when faced with strife.

    So be happy to see your birthday arrive
    You have another year and you're alive
