PARENT TO CHILD

I cannot believe my little girl is now sweet sixteen
She is changing from my little princess into a beauty queen
It seems like only yesterday I was wiping her snotty nose
Now she is so pretty like a flowering rose
So today as we celebrate and I wipe away a tear
I put aside the childhood and look forward to the woman that will appear
HAPPY 16TH BIRTHDAY MY DAUGHTER

16th birthday poems to make a special birthday

Sixteen years old - look at the size of you
Now you are as big as me and take a bigger size shoe
I knew this day would come when I lost the child and found the man
That day is now commencing and I will help you all I can
I am so proud to have a son as wonderful as you
I have watched you make mistakes but watched your conquests to
So today as we celebrate your birth I wish you happiness and joy
On your 16th birthday and forever my wonderful darling boy

16th Birthday Poems for special wishes

Happy 16th Birthday my son
I wish you a wonderful year and a day full of fun
At this time of your life
It should be free of all strife
So enjoy while this period prevails
Go all out like a ship in full sail

by Margmax 2011

Here it is the day has arrived
Cannot believe 16 years and I have survived
Done the nurturing with all that brings
Done the kid's parties with balloons and things

Now can I take a breadth and relax I ask
Probably not, new things will come to task
But none of those things are important today
Today we all celebrate my son/daughter 16th birthday

by Margmax 2012

16th birthday poems say it for you

Today it gives me pleasure to wish for you
A day that you can treasure all the rest of your life through
As a child you were a poppet a joy to have around
And the teenage years are turning out to be quite sound
I hope the road of life continues in this way
And I hope your 16th Birthday is a memorable day

by Margmax 2011

It's here at last for you it's took so long
For me, I just do not know where 16 years have gone
Still a teenager but now grown up and looking ahead
To an adult life with all that it entails it must be said

Happy times, sad times, laughter and tears
Life is full of hope, disappointment and fears
I hope the good times shine through life all the way
And that life is as happy as on your 16th birthday

Happy Birthday my son/daughter on reaching your 16th birthday year...

16th Birthday Poems when you need something special to say

Sixteen today I bet you cannot wait
To do what 16 year old's do when they celebrate
Maybe a movie, a party, roller skating or other
That all sounds wonderful - don't forget (father and/mother
Joking of course parents only permitted on standby
Enjoy your 16th birthday love from (mother and I) (Grandma and I) (Fred and I)

The following 16th birthday poem was written on request

As my darling daughter’s 16th year draws near
I reflect on all my hopes and fears
Her childhood years have been sublime
and the woman emerging I know will be fine

by Margmax 2011

The cake is made sixteen candles on the top
The day is all planned so it should not be a flop
My (darling son/daughter/niece etc) all that remains to say
Is we love you very much have a great 16th birthday

by Margmax 2012

the following for a parent to send will relate to many (indeed most) as bringing up a child is full of joys and woes and can be related to other ages...

Put Out The Flags

Put out the flags, celebrate in style
You have made it through childhood and so have I
Can the teenage years be worse than those we have survived
You have reached 16 and we are all still alive!

Have a great day to be remembered in a nice way
Don't forget the rules even though it's your birthday
I love you loads which is why I say these things
To protect and care is the job parenting brings

Happy 16th Birthday with love ...

16TH BIRTHDAY POEMS GENERAL

Sixteen must be marvelous to be sixteen was I ever sixteen suppose I must have been sixteen a long time ago
Searching my memory I remember somethings about being sixteen nice things, nasty things some high and some low
I remember the excitement of a life to be planned and of course back then my plan would be superb
I remember plans what happened to them often my excitement my parents would curb
But I suppose that is part of being sixteen plans to be made and plans never seen
So make your plans it is part of being sixteen make them with friends and make them alone remember to make them exciting and bold
And as the future continues to unfold remember those plans you made when you were 16 years old
I can foretell the main plan for today to have a wonderful birthday
Enjoy it in every way

by Margmax 2011

Why is sweet attached to the age of sixteen why not sweet fifteen, seventeen or nineteen and why sweet
If I attached a pre word to seventeen - say a word such as neat
Will that catch on and will I become famous
Or just be considered an ignoramus
Anyway Happy birthday sweet sixteen - have a wonderful day
Enjoy your 16th birthday because you are now in your 17th year by the way

by Margmax 2011

Almost grown up but not quite there
In between child and adult it seems unfair
Not old enough to drink in the pub
Never mind have a soak in the tub
Not old enough to vote in the country elections
Never mind just add to your CD collection
Not enough cash to buy the latest fashion
Never mind just wear your old jeans with passion
But old enough to make plans for a future that's bright
So Happy 16th Birthday have a wonderful day and night

by Margmax 2011

Happy Birthday sweet sixteen
I wish you a day fit for a queen
And a night like a famous screen star
And a future that sees you go far

by Margmax 2011

Fifteen birthdays come and gone
Now here has arrived a milestone one
A one that takes you from a child
To a young (lady/man) no longer wild

So on your 16th birthday we wish for you
Happiness and success in all you do
And along the road I am sure there will be
Fun and excitement just wait and see

by Margmax 2011
