Thank you for being the best friend to me.
May you always find love and fulfilment wherever you turn.
Happy birthday to a beloved friend.

To a person of few words but great impact,
To a humanitarian,
To a caring yet purposeful personality,
To stories of greatness yet to be told,
I say a hearty happy birthday to you.
4. Three times I have erased what I should write to you. Not because it was insincere, but because I had nothing to really quantify my wishes on this day. But I want you to know that on this day when everyone is outdoing themselves to have the memorable wish yet, all I can wish for you is that the best moment you have ever experienced in your life will be the least joyful moment you have ever experienced. Happy birthday to a lovely person.
