Do you want to keep me on your shelf?

Inspirational Poems for the First Birthday: Cute Family Poems

Family birthday poems: First birthday sign.

It is amazing how quickly our children grow up!

While they are helpless infants we desperately think they will never sleep all night.

However, before we know it they are walking, talking and making their choices!

As you probably know celebrating their first birthday is a real joyous milestone in a parent's heart.

But at the same time it means that the years of babyhood are slipping away as your child grows which may be a sad thing in your heart.

It can be hard to let them go, to let them grow, and to let them become more independent! All the while, they want to be independent ... as long as you are in their sight.

Ah yes, life, all these contradictions and emotionally confusing feelings of feeling happy and sadly nostalgic at the same time.

This example of inspirational birthday poetry is about your child when he or she is having his or her first birthday. Your child is a little one, but determined to grow.

It is so hard to realize
My child is one today.
When I look into his eyes
"I am still a baby", they say.

But if my little child could talk
He would look at me and say
"I have learned to play and walk
My growing up is not far away".

So I just accept the fact
That my little one is growing.
And happy and joyful I will act
And keep my sadness from showing.

Jealousy Birthday Poetry for Children and about Children

Jealous and unhappy boy sitting on a birhday present.

When you have more than one child in your family, you're probably very aware of jealousy problems with the other children when one child has a birthday.

The following birthday poetry for children that put an example of this into picture form.

When children are little, they may not understand that they're not the main character of the party, but that that belongs to a sister or a brother.

I remember instances when, while the birthday song is being sung, a child might think everyone is singing to them, even if they are not the birthday child. Of course if the child manages to stay in that belief then everybody is happy but if he discovers that he is not the main attraction, he might get quite disappointed.

Perhaps this birthday poem might help in such a situation:

My brother had a birthday party.
He got toys, attention and presents.
He looked all proud, all big and happy.
I felt an oncoming urge of slappy.

When everyone sang his birthday song,
His excited face was beaming and happy.
It seemed to take forever long.
I wanted it to finish, be snappy!

He is having everything his way.
It is just not good or fair!
I am not enjoying his birthday.
I wish I were not there!

Inspirational Birthday Poetry for Children and Adults Who Are a Bit Shy

Each child is unique and different.

Some children like being the center of attention, while others feel uncomfortable and vulnerable being the main attention. I do not think it is any different for adults for that matter.

Some children or adults love being the life of the party. They want a chance to let their light and personality shine.

Others just want to melt into the floor or evacuate themselves into their room where safety dwells.

Perhaps this is one of the poems for children that apply to your child, or you!

When they sang happy birthday
Cheered me as the honorary
I wanted hide under the buffet
Oh my, it's really, really scary!

I wanted to run away,
But there was no escape.
They saw me really good today,
They sang and sang and gaped.

Silly and Funny Birthday Poems about Games and Play

Inspirational birthday poetry: Little boy giving girl lots of balloons.

As you probably know, games are often the center of birthday parties.

Most children and adults alike enjoy playing games as it is great fun to see who wins.

As the games progress, the competitive spirit comes out plainly spiced up with sweet giggles and free laughter. (Sometimes the games can be so involving that it's a good idea to make sure everyone has gone to the bathroom before the games start!)

The following is one of the silly birthday poetry about games at a birthday party. In fact, it is so silly a poem it is hard to figure out just what game is being played. :-)

Come and play.
It is my day,
It is my Birthday.

Pin the tail on Billy,
Laugh and act silly.
This game is a dilly!

Got to play table tennis
To please little Dennis,
No, he is not the menace.

Birthday is game day.
It is the day to play
And put seriousness away.

Sad Birthday Poetry about Independence

When our children enter into the teen years, it can be really challenging to be a parent.

It is hard for us to realize that our children should be accomplishing some maturity by the teen years. To want them not to progress is counterproductive to being a good parent, don't you think?

We want our children to be ready to take the reins of life themselves when they become adults, instead of clinging to Mom and Dad for every decision.

HOWEVER, it is still hard to let them go, especially when the reach the age when they are old enough to drive. Many children have their focus on attaining to driving age as if it was the age of adulthood and fulfilled dreams.

This is one of the sad birthday poems about such a situation.

I will take the keys.
Of course, I said please.
This birthday did finally arrive.
I am now old enough to drive!

The day my parents were dreading,
Their hands begging, spreading.
Asking me to wait awhile.
They are not ready for this trial!

They just can not handle it.
They were loosing their wit.
Just the idea of me in their car,
That is just going much too far!

They took care of me all my life
Through thick and thin, joy and strife.
But to let me drive their precious car,
Now, that was going way too far!

Teen Birthday Poetry about Feeling Better Than Your Parents

When children reach the teen phase of their life, they think they are special, and you know what, they are.

Each teen has his or her own talents and excellent areas.

Each teen, just like each child or adult, is wonderfully unique and different! The small rub comes when the teen might think that he or she indestructible and perhaps better than everybody else - like a special 2.0 breed in the Universe. A power breed that is totally above all things and everybody else!

Now, there is nothing wrong with self confidence. Thinking that you're well worth something is extremely powerful and will take you far.

However, real power comes from being powerful in yourself and not because you measure your power against others and find others less successful than you. See the difference?

This is one of the teen birthday poems about a teen who does that last thing; boosts his or her self worth via comparison.

This teen is convinced beyond any shadow of doubt that he or she knows more than the parents do!

My parents don't seem to know
That I know more than they.
They have so far to go
To catch up with me today.

I understand everything
Way beyond my years.
Just criticism they seem to fling.
I am not wet behind my ears.

I am smarter than them
But they will not listen!
They look at me and yell.
They will know, time will tell!

Inspirational Birthday Poems about Age and Never Getting Old

Inspirational birthday poetry: Elderly man jumping.

You know, some people just never seem to age!

Somehow they seem to be embodying a spirit of life that does not seem to care that their body is aging. And as a result their body doesn't really age or at least ages slower than everybody else's.

This one of inspirational birthday poetry is about such an ageless person who might by carrying many years but it doesn't show in anything other than perhaps wrinkles or perhaps a slower walk. This person will always be at the prime of his or her life no matter how old he or she gets.

This birthday poem will be perfect in a speech for this lively, soulful and ageless birthday child.

My brain is fit, my body is slim,
My eyes have soulful glow.
I can do my every whim,
I am powerful, you know.

I am truly at my prime
And I plan to stay that way.
No matter how many birthdays I'm
Going to have, my strength will stay.

I am special, will never get weak.
Myself, I strive amaze.
I will always be at my peak
Throughout all of my days.

Birthday Love Poems for Dads

Inspirational birthday poems: Girl riding on her dad's back.

Having a good Dad is not a natural given! A Dad who cares and provides for his family while being a supportive pillar of love is a really powerful gift to appreciate. Much more than you might think!

Sure, no one is perfect, however, everybody is human. Everybody has strengths and weaknesses. Spend time thinking about your Dad's good points.

Growing up with a good, caring and wise Dad and continuing with a good loving relationship in adulthood puts a gold star on the chart of life for the whole family.

Honor should be given to the Dads in the world, and at their birthday is an opportune time to give them honor.

On Dad's birthday is a wonderful time to layer him with warm love and admiration. This is an inspirational birthday poem giving Dad his deserved due.

Today we celebrate the birthday
Of our one and only Dad.
This is a very special day.
He is the best we have ever had.

He works hard and provides for us.
He is out there every day.
He is a Dad we can fully trust.
He is good in every way.

Love Birthday Poetry Celebrating Moms

Ah, yes, and there is Mom, the epitome of nurturing, patience and love.

Who else but a Mom will love her children unconditionally no matter how they behave, what they say and what they get into?

I am glad Moms are made that way, or there might be a shortage of people on the earth! ;-) Who else has the patience to stay home with little children all day, cleaning up after them and meeting their needs, even before her needs are met?

Perhaps Mom deserves a platinum star with a large diamond in the middle, at least (hint, hint, Dads)! ;-)

This is an inspirational birthday poem about one who wants to honor Mom before himself or herself:

Today is my birthday
But I want to honor Mom.
She cared for me, day by day,
Even when the pressure was on.

When I was sick she cared for me
Even when she was sick, too.
I have many a good memory
Of her love for me, so true.

- Mom, forever, this is for you!

Funny Birthday Poems for Grandparents

Little boy hugging his grandmother.

Yes, Mom and Dad turns into Granny and Pappy in time, just like children often turn into Moms and Dads.

Is it not strange how appearances change with age? How many kids have looked at their adult self in the mirror and exclaimed: "I look like my mother!" Or, "I look like my Dad!"

Following is a birthday poem about the unmentionable subject of Granny's age on her birthday.

Funny to think that, yes, she was a baby once, long ago. She was all soft and pudgy and had a smooth, pinchey cheeks face.

Now, even though her skin might not be as silky smooth, she is still just as soft and warm. So give her a big hug of love. It will surely help to keep her young!

Granny had a grand old birthday.
How old she is she would not say
And Mamma is not giving it away.

Grandpa is keeping it all in.
He knows what is best for him.
If he told she would have his skin.

What is important is that she is here
With us, we love her dear.
No matter, we will all draw near.

Birthday Love Poems

The birthday party can be an icon of family fun.

If you're the type of person to get stressed when arranging family gatherings, perhaps it can be a good idea to go through your range of traditions. Which ones do you want keep because they're fun and which ones do you want to avoid because they stress you out. You see, when you do what is best for you, you will most likely also be doing what is best for everybody else. :-)

Following is a love birthday poem. This poem is about the joy of meeting in the home of the person having the birthday and showing how much the person is loved.

Happy Birthday greeting
To you and be blessed.
We all will be meeting
At your house as your guest.

Birthday cake and ice cream
For everyone that is there.
All our faces gay and a-beam
Showing you our love and care.
