Birthday Poems Quotes:

“You will never be old
With a twinkle in your eye,
With the Springtime in your heart
As you watch the Winter fly.
You will never be old
While you have a smile to share,
While you wonder at mankind
And you find the time to care.
While there’s magic in your world
And a special dream to hold,
While you still can laugh at life,
You never will be old.” - Iris Hellelden
