50th Birthday Poems

Pin this image to find these poems later.

50th birthday poems are a nice touch to add to a number of things. You can add these to cards, speeches, or you can use them as a gift on their own.

These birthday poems can be incorporated into your cards – either by writing them in a blank store bought card, or using them in your hand-crafted cards.

As a gift, you can type up the poem on a nice decorative piece of paper and frame it. This is a touching, one-of-a-kind gift for that special someone.

If you have arranged to have speeches presented at the birthday party, you can even use a poem in your speech.

Celebrate this day, in an extraordinary way.
This day is all for you, but we can be sure to party too!

You’ve turned 50, hooray!
Let’s remember your life and every memorable day!
We’ll tell you how great you are,
but no, we’re not buying you a car!
Let’s celebrate the first day of the best half of your life,
So pick up the knife,
Let’s cut the cake… and have a great time!


A bounty of love coming your way, to brighten up your favorite day.
I wish for you many so more. I know the best, life has in store.


Life is a journey and along the way
You meet special people who brighten your days.

You’re special to me and have made my life bright
May this be the best day of your life.


We often don’t say how our hearts feel
It’s times like this we try to reveal
What’s deep in our souls, so I’ll give it a try
To say it to you at this special time–
I love you my sweetheart. I’m so glad you’re mine.


Today is the day you turned fifty.
Like few other birthdays, this one’s a biggie.
Have fun, let loose, have yourself a ball.
Make it really special, the most special of all.

When we get together 10 years from now,
I want your 50th year to make you most proud.
Today is the start of the rest of your life.
Begin with this party to live your life right.


If you prefer to explore writing something of your own, get a pad and paper, find a quiet place, and just start brainstorming.

What do you want to write? Something funny or something sweet?

Think of poems you’ve read before and why you liked them. Then just write down phrases and words you might use. Let your mind play with it.

Next, go do something like washing your car, cleaning house, or just about anything where your mind can wander as you do it.

You just might come up with some great ideas when you least expect it.

In my experience, the more you write, the more ideas you get, so don’t be stingy. Keep on brainstorming and writing until you get it just write – I mean – right!
