Belated Birthday Wishes

Rajib Singha Feb 12, 2020
People forget most things, and birthdays are one of them. So to let your dear ones feel that you still care even though you forget to wish them on their special day, here are some belated birthday wishes you can pen down.
As a gentle reminder for all those forgetful minds, 'Birthdays come once in all the 365 days around the Sun!' Birthday wishes may be nothing but simple chain of words, but they mean the most for the person on his/her special day. You may never realize what happiness and sense of being loved and cared, you may express for the special person with a simple wish of yours, which can be as plain as 'Happy Birthday Dear!'
But there are times when you just cannot make it on time or become too busy to remember the day. And this is what stresses on the fact that your belated birthday wishes must be more than just words in black and white; they have to be extra special.
And if you are wondering how to make up to your loved one for not wishing her/him on time, consider some of these examples compiled here.

"How do I begin to tell you how honored I am
To have you in my life?
I'll start by saying it was a dream come true
The day you became my wife. You're my best friend in the good times
And my rock in times of sorrow.
You're the reason for sweet yesterdays
And my promise for tomorrow.
I never thought I could feel this loved
Until you became my wife.
You made this year and each other year
The best of my life."
Love always,
