    till a day like this is here –

    Your kindness and your thoughtfulness,
    your sweetness and your love.

    that your life will always be –
    As happy for you, Mother,
    as you’ve made my life for me!

    They turn their faces
    to enjoy the fun!

  1. So let your hair down
    and have some fun –
    Forget all those chores
    they’ll still get done.
    So dust of your glad rags and
    head downtown –
    Jump on the dance floor
    and start getting down.
    But just remember
    you’re still my mom –
    I’ve got a reputation
    to uphold with everyone.
    So don’t do anything
    that’d make grandma frown –
    Like getting drunk
    and falling down.
    And when you come home
    at half-past two –
    Just remember
    to take off your shoes.
    ‘Cause climbing the stairs
    in that state –
    Is a mistake you
    don’t want to make.

    Happy birthday, Mom.

  1. You taught me to tie my shoes extra tight
    And how to ride a bike
    You taught me to brush my teeth and my hair
    And to match the clothes I wear
    You taught me to read, to write, and to clean up my toys every night
    You taught me to laugh and to play
    You taught me how to keep the monsters away
    You taught me hope, you taught me faith
    You taught me to love, instead of hate
    I don’t know how I will repay you, for all you have me. One day I’ll figure it out.
    For now, I can say, without a shadow of a doubt…
    I love you, Mom, inside and out!
    Happy birthday!

    Right from wrong
    And on your special day
    I want to tell you
    I will do you proud!
    Happy birthday, Mom!

  1. Your heart’s like a crystal,
    Natural and bright,
    It melts all my grief,
    And sorrow from sight.
    You nourished my cravings,
    Since I was a pea,
    You stood by my side,
    And would walk through the sea.
    You sacrificed so much,
    I wish to repay,
    With words and actions,
    I’ll always convey.
    Today is your Birthday!
    My love is so true,
    You are my mother,
    And I thank God for – you.

    Because this one-time offer
    In 24 hours, will get over

  1. For nine months, I was just a part of you,
    Little by little, I grew inside of you.
    The morning sickness you didn’t really mind,
    Cause from day one you are already kind.
    When my life is dark, you serve as my light,
    When I am sad, you always hug me tight.
    When I was inside of you, in me, you already believe,
    You sacrifice a lot just to let me live.
    I hope when it’s my turn to become a mom,
    I can achieve at least half of what you’ve done,
    Cause you did not just give me a life,
    You also taught me to fight my own strife.
    Today’s my birthday, but it should be your day,
    Cause you’re the reason why I am here today,
    So in this very special day of mine,
    I wanna say Thank You to you, my Mom.

  1. Are you an angel
    Or a genie perhaps
    You seem to have answers
    To all of life’s traps
    Are you a magician
    Or a fairy in disguise
    Troubles just wither away
    When I look in your eyes
    Maybe you are
    An angel, genie, magician, fairy
    All combined into one
    Beautiful person called ‘Mommy’
    Happy birthday.

– Unknown

  1. Mother, I wish you the best on your birthday;
    No one has earned it like you.
    You provide the love that makes our dream
    Of a happy home come true.

    You enrich everything you come near;
    You’re our rock, our beacon and our pleasure,
    And everything we all hold so dear.

– Karl Fuchs
