Birthday Poems for Your Friend
- We’ve had our moments of struggle
And our moments of pain and separation
There were times when we both felt like quitting and saying goodbye
Yet the bond of our friendship, stronger than our troubles, prevailed
Things haven’t always been rosy
But I’m thankful for you, our friendship, and your commitment
Happy birthday to you, my friend
- Sweet friend, you give me wings to fly
You are the reason my face always features a smile as wide as the sky
And that is why I shall always be there for you until the day the seas become dry
I promise to never ever make you cry
- You are a true friend among friends
Your smile, empathy, and big heart make you stand out among the rest
Whether the times are good or bad, in you I find rest
You are truly the best
Whatever you do in life, may you never lack
Because true friends should be on the good side of luck
Happy birthday, dear friend
