"The Birthday Birdie" Poem

Hey there, yes you, I have something to say.

A little birdie told me it was your birthday today.

It went on to tell that it thinks you're quite swell,

that you're beautiful, bright, and you light up the night.

I told the lil' birdie that I can't disagree,

and that I'm very lucky because you've chosen me.

I love you, my sweet. I always will,

even more than the birdie could ever tell.

"The Sun, the Stars, and You" Poem

The sun came up this morning like it was just another day,

but right away it noticed that it was your birthday.

So it shone a little brighter and told all its friends,

so when it sets tonight, the fun won't have to end.

And then when we're alone, when it's just you and me,

we'll go for a walk and count how many stars we can see.

Happy birthday, sweetheart.

"Silly Birthday" Poem

It seems silly, don't you think, to choose just one day

to tell you all of the things I need to say:

that I love you more than my life itself,

that I can't imagine being with anyone else,

that the way you smile lights up my world,

that out of everyone I think you're the most lovely girl,

that every day I pinch myself to make sure I'm not dreaming

because I'm so thankful you've chosen to spend life with me.

What are you doing tonight?

"Sweeter Than Cake" Poem

I tried to bake you a cake, but you were much sweeter.

I tried to get you a gift, but you were much neater.

I tried to buy you a ring, but you sparkled brighter.

I tried to sing you a song, but your melody went higher.

Everything I do, it can't measure up to you.

So here is my cake, my gift, my ring, and my song.

This poem, too, I give it to you, and the simple truth is simply this:

The best gift I can give you is a simple kiss.

Happy birthday.

What a year has passed, hopefully for the better.

What a time this is, with you by my side.

"The Things We've Seen" Poem

The things we've seen, the stuff we've been through,

the smiles and the tears and the sad times we argue,

all of our jokes and our laughs and our embraces,

all of the paths we've gone down that can't be erased,

the things that we've said, the things we haven't,

all of these things are all mixed up together,

making what we have what it is and I can't think of anything better.

You are the one that I love with my life.

Please do me the honor and one day be my wife.

"Just a Little Birthday" Poem

It's just a little birthday, that's all it really is,

just another little day, just like the one before it.

Just another couple hours before the sun will set,

just a few more tiny minutes, some of the only ones we'll get.

It's just a little birthday, but I still want you to know,

that you're just a little special, more than I could tell you so.

You're just a little beautiful, just slightly extraordinary,

just kind of wonderful, just kind of mind-blowing.

You're just very slightly the only woman I want to love,

the kind of woman that most likely was sent from up above.

So on your little birthday, you should probably know,

that I'm a little in love with you (okay, a lot in love with you),

and you just, kinda, sorta complete my life just a little bit.

So, happy birthday.
