Happy Birthday mom

Here are my poem in Norwegian: (translation in English comming down below)

Du blir et år eldre
og du har gjort det med stil
Sekundene tikker
tiden er inne
du går inn i ett nytt år
med håp i sinnet

Tid for ettertanke
på året som gikk
drømmer som knuste
alt du ikke fikk

Men alt det gode
må du ikke glemme
alle de rundt deg
som er glad i deg
her hjemme


Nytt år, nye muligheter
er det noen som sier
nye sjanser feires
med store seremonier
Vi feirer deg og året
som nettopp har gått
og at du har klart deg
så flott

Du er verdens beste
mor og mormor
og du fortjener det beste
Derfor jeg som din datter
prøver mitt beste
på å få sagt det meste
i et dikt til deg

gratulerer med dagen mamma
jeg elsker deg 

Here are my poem in English: (hope you enjoy)

You are a year older
and you do it with style
seconds ticking
the time is right
you enter a new year
with hope in your mind

Time for reflection
the past year
dreams shattered
everything you did not receive

But all the good
do not forget
all those around you
who loves you at
home


New year, new opportunities
There are some who say
new chances celebrated
with large ceremonies
We celebrate you and the year
that have just gone
and that you have managed you
so great

You are the best
mother and grandmother
and you deserve the best
Therefore I, as your daughter
trying my best
to say most
in a poem for you

happy birthday mum
I love you

    this would be great to get from a daughter or son (wish it would happen for me!!) but my daughter does give me some nice things and a few nice words each year. I really enjoyed this and seeing how your language looks the way it appears here.

    This is a very sweet poem for a mother's birthday, Laila. In fact, our dear mother's celebrate both their birthdays on the same month. Maybe, I will ask your permission to read or borrow your poem for my mother too. Congratulations and thanks for sharing and also for dropping by to read some of my poems.

    hi Laila! This is such a sweet poem for your mom and for her birthday! A lovely gift for her! Anne-Lise is definitely a very special lady and I can imagine how wonderfully you celebrated her birthday...I find it so nice that you also posted it in Norwegian and gave us the English translation as well. How are you? I hope all is well with you! Sending you hugs!

    Hi Laila, I did not know that Anne-Lise is your mother. I noticed you all have Andresen in the name but did not know that you are related. Yes, she is so deserved it. Talent runs in your family. Love your poem! It's awesome that you can write poems in both languages. Love ya, Toquyen
