CHECK OUT: Long Birthday Paragraphs
- I, my dear, was born to-day—
So all my jolly comrades say:
They bring me music, wreaths, and mirth,
And ask to celebrate my birth:
Little, alas! my comrades know
That I was born to pain and woe;
To thy denial, to thy scorn,
Better I had ne’er been born:
I wish to die, even whilst I say—
‘I, my dear, was born to-day.’
I, my dear, was born to-day:
Shall I salute the rising ray,
Well-spring of all my joy and woe?
Clotilda, thou alone dost know.
Shall the wreath surround my hair?
Or shall the music please my ear?
Shall I my comrades’ mirth receive,
And bless my birth, and wish to live?
Then let me see great Venus chase
Imperious anger from thy face;
Then let me hear thee smiling say—
‘Thou, my dear, wert born to-day.’
This day, whate’er the Fates decree,Shall still be kept with joy by me:This day then let us not be told,That you are sick, and I grown old;Nor think on our approaching ills,And talk of spectacles and pills.To-morrow will be time enoughTo hear such mortifying stuff.Yet, since from reason may be broughtA better and more pleasing thought,Which can, in spite of all decays,Support a few remaining days:From not the gravest of divinesAccept for once some serious lines.

- What age is happiest?
Had you asked me,
I would have made this plea:
the Now is best.
What joy to live with zest each newborn day;
and from the Moment wrest what Life will give away.
The Past is but a guest who came and went,
and left this one behest: to be content.
Think how To-day is blest!
We’ve eyes to see Nature in Beauty drest for you, for me.
What matter that the crest of Youth is past.
Youth lives within the breast with joys that last.
The will to do our best, and hands for giving.
Oh! Now’s the happiest, best time for living!
What age is happiest?
Oh! hear my vow, for I have put the test –
the happiest’s Now.
Sweet sighs and kindly jest for warmth and cheer;
and Love’s most high bequest to crown the year.
- I think of aging as a gift, a privilege to enjoy,
Not as space or empty time that’s easy to destroy.
Years of toil are history now, your strength is almost spent,
But all the days still left to you are surely heaven sent.
You now have time to reminisce, to think of years gone by;
Remembering all the things you’ve done and now you wonder “Why?”
You stop and think and want to know why youth so quickly flew,
Time then was brief, just fleeting by; so much left up to you.
And now your family’s grown and gone, they’re scattered, far away;
And as you ponder on the past you feel alone each day.
But I know one sweet promise to those who are God’s own,
“I’ll always walk beside you, you’re never left alone.”
Your prayers aren’t left unanswered, there’s still much you can do;
Consider interceding for folks who need Him too.
When folks feel lost and lonely, greet them with a smile,
And give them the assurance that life is still worthwhile.
You’re still here for a reason, so do the best you can;
You have God-given talents that fit into His plan.
- A very Happy Birthday to you
Don’t let your age make you feel blue
Another year older and wiser you are
You should feel like a shining star.
Age is just a number you see
What’s important is for you to be
Loving and living each day with glee
And celebrating for all to see.
So be happy with this special day
We hope this card which is sent your way
Will make you realize you lucky you are
To have live your life so long this far.
Best wishes and kisses we do send
Over the miles and around the bend
A happy, happy day to you
We are celebrating with you too.
- My wish for you on this special day
Is that the coming year goes well
And may life treat you great in all the ways
That my wishes and words can’t tell.
Behind you now is yesterday
Let your experience and knowledge pave the way
Here’s to you and to your success
We know you will give it your best.
So happy, happy birthday
We wish you many more
and on this day to you we say
We know life has good things in store
- Another year has passed,
Your birthday is here,
May this year bring joy,
Twelve months you hold dear.

Create a new plan.

This I wish for you,
You deserve all you want,
May your dreams come true.
- This birthday wish is for you,
I hope you like what I wrote,
It took me many hours to do it,
The words were stuck in my throat.
At first my mind was a total blank,
I didn’t know what to say to you,
So I will wish you what’s in my heart:
May your wildest dreams come true.
- Because today’s your birthday,
And because you’re extra nice,
One wish is not enough for you,
So you must wish twice!
I think you’re so amazing,
And you deserve the very best,
I wish you a wonderful life,
Filled with love and happiness.
Wishing you only good things,
Hope you have the best day ever,
Not a second, not an hour,
But a day so great that lasts forever.
- Today’s your birthday party,
But I can’t be there with you,
So here’s a special birthday wish,
For good luck in all you do.
May your balloons never pop,
May your cake be the sweetest,
May your gifts be plentiful,
May this birthday be your happiest.
- On your birthday every year,
I thank the stars you were born,
With you as my best friend,
My life’s all candy and popcorn.
As each year brings new tests,
I know how glad I feel,
You’ve got my back every day,
Our friendship’s as strong as steel.
Birthdays come and birthdays go,
Another year of yours has just begun,
This message is sent to let you know,
In the Friends department, you’re #1.
- Light bulbs on a birthday cake.
What a difference that would make!
Plug it in and make a wish,
then relax and flip a switch!
No more smoke
or waxy mess
to bother any birthday guests.
But Grampa says, “it’s not the same!
Where’s the magic?
Where’s the flame?
To get your wish without a doubt,
You need to blow some candles out!”
- My heart is like a singing bird
Whose nest is in a water’d shoot;
My heart is like an apple-tree
Whose boughs are bent with thickset fruit;
My heart is like a rainbow shell
That paddles in a halcyon sea;
My heart is gladder than all these
Because my love is come to me.
Raise me a dais of silk and down;
Hang it with vair and purple dyes;
Carve it in doves and pomegranates,
And peacocks with a hundred eyes;
Work it in gold and silver grapes,
In leaves and silver fleurs-de-lys;
Because the birthday of my life
Is come, my love is come to me.
- It seems I get by on more luck than sense,
not the kind brought on by knuckle to wood,
breath on dice, or pennies found in the mud.
I shimmy and slip by on pure fool chance.
At turns charmed and cursed, a girl knows romance
as coffee, red wine, and books; solitude
she counts as daylight virtue and muted
evenings, the inventory of absence.
But this is no sorry spinster story,
just the way days string together a life.
Sometimes I eat soup right out of the pan.
Sometimes I don’t care if I will marry.
I dance in my kitchen on Friday nights,
singing like only a lucky girl can.
- May I never be afraid
especially of myself
Muhammed Ali are you telling
Well you’re being true aren’t you and
you talk so wonderfully in your body
that protects you with physique of voice
raps within dance
May I never be afraid
rocked and quaked
the mantilla is lace
whose black is oak
But if I’m dark I’m strong
as my own darkness
my strength the universe
whose blackness is air
But if I’m alive I’m strong
Strong as the violets
in Marlon Brando’s fist
his dissemblance flourished into truth
I’d take me too
and my Ali I see you
a hard bright speck of me
the savage formalist
authentic deed of gossip
a kind body
