A birthday is a day filled with special joy, a day that lets you know you're always loved and cherished.
A birthday is a time to plan ahead and to dream of all the beautiful things that life has to offer.
On your birthday
stretch for a sunbeam...
Reach for a star...
Go for a beautiful dream...
Pick out some wishes,
no matter how far,
or how hard to reach
they may seem...
Cherish some hopes
that are dear to your heart...
And as a new year comes in view,
treasure and keep them
and know from the start
that this year
you can make them come true!

Over the Hill - Lona Hatfield
Over the Hill and sliding down fast,
You knew being young just couldn't last.
Your back goes out the eyes grow dim,
You can't hear over the background din.
Aches and pains are constant companions
You wear bigger shoes because of your bunions!
The memory is fading, names you forget
You really don't want to get older - and yet...
The slide down the other side of the hill
Can give you quite an invigorating thrill!
What to Count - Emilie Barnes
Don't count how many years
Just count the good
The times you've lent
a helping hand,
The friends that you have won.
Count your deeds of kindness,
The smiles, not the tears;
Count all the pleasures
that you've had,
But never count the years.
Turning Thirty - Sharon Yates Lyerly
I dreamed of being sweet sixteen,
Then magic twenty-one,
But suddenly I'm twenty-nine
And seeing thirty come.
My babysitter calls me "ma'am"!
It makes me feel quite numb,
How can I think of me as old?
I've always been so YOUNG!
Once I could name the "top ten" songs
Played on the radio,
And now I turn the rock groups down
Or hunt for something slow.
Now there are lines around my eyes
I thought would never show,
And pounds that used to be above
My waist have sunk below.
The boy I worshipped in college
Now lies beside me snoring.
His middle's thicker--so is mine,
And he's not so adoring.
He used to worship at my feet;
Now mostly he's ignoring.
I once clung to his every word;
Now sometimes he is boring.
I was depressed to see how fast
My youthful days could flee,
And then I met a fine old man.
His age was eighty-three.
His hair was white, his walk was slow,
And he could barely see.
He called me "child" and said he wished
He was as young as me.
At 50, you become a Wise Older Woman, free to honour wrinkles, accept your body as is, and admit that aging isn't about losing youth, but about gaining wisdom.
Today Dear Lord I am 80 and there's much I haven't done,
I hope Dear Lord, You'll let me live until I'm 81.
But then if I haven't finished all I want to do,
Would you let me stay awhile until I'm 82?
So many places I want to go, so very much to see,
Do You think You could manage to make it 83?
The world is changing very fast
There is much in store,
I'd like it very much to live until I'm 84.
And if by then I'm still alive,
I'd like to stay till 85.
More planes will be up in the air,
So I'd really like to stick,
And see what happens to the world when I am 86.
I know Dear Lord it's much to ask,
And it must be nice in heaven.
But I would really like to stay until I'm 87.
I know by then I won't be fast, and sometimes will be late,
But it would be so pleasant, to be around at 88.
I will have seen many things and had a wonderful time,
So, I'm sure that I'll be will to leave at 89...maybe.
Birthdays are nature's way of telling us to eat more cake.

Monday's child is fair of face;
Tuesday's child is full of grace;
Wednesday's child is on the go;
Thursday's child is a joy to know.
Friday's child is loving and giving;
Saturday's child takes joy in living;
but the child that is born on the Sabbath day
is merry and blithe and bright and gay.
The Birthday Child - Rose Fyleman
Everything's been different
All the day long,
Lovely things have happened,
Nothing has gone wrong.
Nobody has scolded me,
Everyone has smiled.
Isn't it delicious
To be a birthday child?
Packages - Adelaide Lowe
Isn't it fun to open packages?
Isn't it fun to guess
What's in them first? It might be a doll
Or a game or a party dress.
I like them best when they come with ribbons
And bows to be untied.
And pretty seals that you have to tear
Before you can look inside.
Never Quite Just Right
They say I'm too young,
to cross the street to play.
That I'm too old to cry,
When I don't get my way.
That I am much to big,
to swing on the garden gate.
But very much too small,
to stay up after eight.
I'm young, I'm old, I'm big, I'm small-
Do you ever think, in age and height,
I will ever grow to be just right?
What Is a One-Year Old?
A One-year-old daughter
is so many things...
A tiny discoverer
of butterfly wings,
A hugger of Teddies,
A sweet sleepyhead,
And someone to dream for
in bright years ahead.
A special new person
Who, right from the start,
Has a place in the family
And, of course, in your heart.
And, just when you think
That you've learned all the things
That your dear Daughter is
And the joy that she brings,
A hug or a grin
Comes with such sweet surprise
That love finds you smiling
With tears in your eyes!
Four Years Old - Joan Walsh Anglund
It happened to me!
Yesterday, I was only three.
But when today
came through the door,
I turned to FOUR!
Please, everybody, look at me!
Today I'm five years old, you see!
And after this, I won't be four,
Not ever, ever, any more!
A Verse for the Night Before a Birthday - M. Meyer Kort
When I have said my evening prayer,
And my clothes are folded on the chair,
And my mother switches off the light,
I'll still be four years old tonight.
But, from the very break of day,
Before the children rise and play,
Before the darkness turns to gold,
Tomorrow, I'll be five years old.
Five kisses when I wake,
Five candles on my cake!
I won't be three or two or one,
For that was when I'd first begun.
Now I'll be five awhile,
And then I'll soon be something else again.
Now We Are Six - A.A. Milne
When I was one,
I had just begun.
When I was two,
I was nearly new.
When I was three,
I was hardly me.
When I was four,
I was not much more.
When I was five,
I was just alive.
But now I am six,
I'm as clever as clever.
So I think I'll be six
now and forever.
Today You Are Ten - Delora Burrow-Bradish
I can hardly believe,
That today you are ten.
I wish you were still little,
But I cannot pretend.
You have grown to be strong,
Sensitive and kind.
When I see you out playing
I can't believe you are mine.
Talented, athletic, funny and sweet,
You drink a gallon of milk every week!
I can hardly keep up.
You are growing so fast.
Ten years as your mother
Is now a thing of the past.
My prayer? My hope?
My dream for your life?
Love God. Seek His word.
Do what is right.
My heart? My ambition?
My desire everyday?
To love you and train you
To walk in His ways.
Fifteen years have come and gone
Your sixteenth year begins at dawn
Your life as a child almost complete
A fine young lady we all now meet
So in the days and years to come
Take time to sing and dance and hum
When you get older through life you must run
So while you are young, take time for fun
