Message Guy Tip #32:How to select sentimental birthday poems
Sentimental poems are naturally the most heartwarming of all the poems you can choose from. If “heartwarming” is the route you want to take, you’re in the right place. The big question: how sentimental do you want to go? Before you even try to answer that very important question, you should…Read more ►
…Consider why you want to go the “heartwarming” route in the first place. If you’re like most people, it’s probably because you consider sentimental birthday poems a safe bet. There’s no denying it, that’s a major plus. This route definitely prevents what most birthday message givers dread: offending the birthday boy or girl. It’s almost impossible to insult anyone with a heartfelt birthday wish. More than anything else, people choose sentimental birthday messages because this type of birthday verse allows them to fully express their feelings for the birthday guy or gal, showing how much they care about him or her feel, making him or her feel special and, most importantly, loved. This is a triple benefit you just can’t ignore.The only negatives here? For some people, “sentimental” birthday verses tend to cause a certain level of discomfort. And by “people” I don’t just mean the birthday boy or girl — I also mean you, too. If you don’t like to be touchy-feely, don’t go this route.So how do you choose the right sentimental birthday poems? You need to look at two critical factors:The “sentimentality” factor – The more sentimental you and the recipient are, the more sentimental your chosen poem should be! Conversely, the less sentimental you and the recipient are, the less sentimental your chosen poem should be!
The “caring” factor – The more you care about the recipient, the more sentimental your chosen poem should be! Conversely, the less you care about the recipient, the less sentimental your chosen poem should be!
Basing your choice on these factors will lead to a poem with the right amount of sentimentality for you and the birthday boy or girl.In my “Sentimental Birthday Poems” section, you have a wide choice of slightly to highly sentimental poems to choose from, so just pick the one that works for you and the recipient of your birthday message.The only other thing you need to know is how to tell if a poem is any good. What makes a good poem? For me, it’s all about speaking the truth through words. For dailywritingtips.com, a good poem paints “a picture with carefully chosen words. It should have a point that a reader unknown to the poet can respond to.” For more poem tips from this site, click here. Or get started right away — you’ll find plenty of sentimental birthday poems here for the birthday girl or boy to relate to.Bottom line: Choose this route if the recipient likes heartfelt messages. If not, stick with a “happy” poem, even a funny one.◄ Read less

The message below is one of my favorites because it contains a certain element that makes it stand out from the rest of the sentimental birthday poems on this page. What’s that element?

That element is nostalgia. More than anything else, this poem harks back to all the birthdays in the past that you may have had at the kitchen table or basement with just your mother, father, brothers and/or sisters. For me, there’s nothing quite like the “good ole days” to make a birthday feel even more special. Perhaps the birthday girl or boy feels the same way? If so, this is the right poem for you and the recipient of your birthday message.

FOR OLD TIME’S SAKEBy Message Guy
I still remember the old days,When we were under one roof,Our birthdays were small affairs,You and I were such goofs.We’d sit around the kitchen table,You used to cut the birthday cake,If you took too big of a piece,I’d smear it all over your face.Today again that day has come,It’s your special day of the year,I brought a cake to celebrate you,And cover your face ear to ear. I traveled many miles to be here,I came from a distant place,Let’s make your birthday special,Once again for old time’s sake.Happy birthday!
I WISH YOUBy Message Guy
Your birthday comes once a year,Today is a special time for you,You should have only special things,One simple wish just wouldn’t do.So I wish you all the stars in the sky,A beam of light to show you the way,All the love and joy in the world,Starting now on your birthday.
YOUR SWEET SONGBy Message Guy
Happy birthday!At our age, life’s so sweet,Even sweeter because of you,You’ve been a shoulder to lean on,A friend through and through. You’re in my heart now and always,My regard for you grows every day,Your sweet song is music to my soul,Nothing sweeter’s ever come my way.
TODAY’S YOUR BIRTHDAYBy Message Guy
Birthdays come and go too fast,Too quick to appreciate,Today’s your birthday once more,The perfect time to celebrate.Let’s raise a glass to you and yours,Let’s commemorate your big day,You’re the finest person I know,May you stay blessed in every way. Happy birthday!
