So today as your celebrate your 18th birthday
You better choose venues a few miles away

Celebrations are afoot I have no doubt
As it's that birthday when you have a big blow out
Congratulations have a wonderful time
I (we) hope your 18th birthday is just sublime

by Margmax

Well my son it's arrived at last
That milestone age has come so fast
Now you are legally allowed to vote and drink
Although the latter is not new to you I think
But now it's all legal so that's alright
You can visits bars legally and get plastered tonight

by Margmax

What happened to our little girl
Years have flew by in a whirl
Today she is old enough to vote and drink
Although the latter is not new to her we think
But now it's all legal so that's alright
She can visit bars legally and drink all night

the following daughter poem was written on request

A daughter is special a joy to behold
and that is you my darling (Emma) every day
that unfolds
Your birthday each year gives me the chance
to say
How much I love you and that love is here to

Today is a special birthday you have become
of age
I don’t know if I am happy about this turning of
another page
To be 18 for you is absolutely exciting and fun
but for me your mum it’s a bit worrying hun

I hope your enjoy every minute of your day
and your makeup and hair just goes your way
I hope you are happy with all the gifts you get
But if you are not well hard luck my pet

by Margmax 2014

Happy 18th birthday my friend
Tonight I will join you in partying to the end
I am sure we will have a fantastic time
Because I have already started on the wine

by Margmax

Coming of age you have waited for this day
Legally drinking partying the night away
It seems like only yesterday you were playing with your toys
Now you are all grown up and swopped the toys for boys
We wish you a life ahead that is as wonderful as can be
No matter how old you are you are still my child (grandchild) you see
4th line if verse is for boy should end swopped the toys for nights with the boys
last line child (grandchild) can be adapted to niece nephew etc.

by Margmax

Now that things are legal I bet you feel grown up
Life must seem exciting just like an overflowing cup
I hope it never changes and life continues so
And you always feel like you do today wherever your life goes

by Margmax

As you celebrate your 18th year life must seem exciting
The expectation of what life holds must be very inviting
The wishes which I send today are for a future bright
For happiness and good fortune just as you have tonight

by Margmax

Enjoy today and remember it well for it will fly away
When we are young we never see how quickly passes each day
So take a minute at memorable points to record your special times on this earth
Just as I will do today whilst remembering the day of your birth

by Margmax

18th birthday poems for a special birthday

Can it be 18 years ago since you appeared on the scene
They have went so very quickly it really is obscene
We have enjoyed every one of them we have celebrated them in style
Our tiny little baby is all grown up but today we will reminisce for a while
Happy 18th Birthday darling child

You have reached a milestone birthday now time to learn diplomacy and tact
No longer can you be excused for childish misdemeanors

Because even though childhood is behind you life can still be fun

It’s Arrived..

It’s here, yes it’s arrived -
you are now at that age so no more lies
Now you can flash that smile that says
“Yes mate I really am the right age”

You can now vote put your cross where you choose
It’s now your given right you have nothing to lose
How grown up does this make you feel?
I know it sounds a bit unreal

So here we are an adult at last
A special day indeed now your childhood is past
I wish you an 18th birthday you will remember for many years to come
and I wish you a future as wonderful as today and then some

by Margmax 2013

Written on request:
My darling grandchild here we are
at another milestone in life
Childhood behind you with all it’s
pleasure and strife
It has been an honour to be part of
those years seeing you grow
From a baby to the young person
we now know

As you start a new journey into the
path of college
We wish you happiness, fun and
hope you gain a bit knowledge
We wish for you to achieve all your
hopes and dreams
and you know we are always behind
you, always a member on your team

So Happy 18th Birthday to a special
girl that is you
May this day be a day you will remember
your whole life through
May the future be sparkling, exciting and
as special as today
For our darling granddaughter these
wishes are winging their way.
