1) If all nephews are supposed to be
As cute and adorable as you
Your aunt wants to give
Your mother a nephew too
2) To my dear nephew....
You broke a window in my house
While playing ball
You had me worried and tensed
When you got lost at the mall
You never accepted my friend request
On Facebook and never followed back on Twitter
Despite all this, you an awesome teenager
And your aunt can never be bitter
3) I bought you an expensive gift
I bought you a yummy and delicious cake
I bought you lots of treats
I bought you chocolates of the best make
All this is just to let you know
That your uncle loves you
Happy birthday to the little fella
Who is my favorite nephew
4) I want you to win at every step of life
And be a successful person
I want to support you in every way
So that you can be number one
I want the best of everything in life
To come in your destiny's way
Luck, love success, happiness and more
Is what your uncle wishes you on your birthday
5) Who said all nephews are naughty
They can also be very nice
They may be a little mischievous
But they are lovable on that very premise
No matter how mischievous you are
I really love you to no end
On your birthday, I hope you like the gift
Which I am going to send
6) Life is what is you make of it, dear nephew
I hope you make your life honest and true
Life is defined by what you give to others, my boy
I hope you make life happy by giving others joy
Life is all about living every moment, my dear
I hope you make that your motto this year
7) You are both, my strength and weakness
Because you give me nothing but happiness
Sometimes, your love makes me strong
At times, days without you seem really long
Your presence in my life, I dearly cherish
On your birthday today, I want to make a wish
May nothing in this world affect our relationship
Without your love, your dear aunt would flip
8) I have wrapped your gift with the paper of joy
I have sealed the paper with the scotch tape of love
I have tied a lovely red ribbon of affection
That makes the box look cute from above
I have done everything possible
To get a gift that you like very much
I have wrapped it very lovingly too
So that it gets a magical touch
Happy birthday, my dear nephew
9) When everything is down
On my face, when there is a frown
There is only one person I think of
With whom I can joke around and scoff
That person is my wonderful nephew
I wonder what I would do without you
10) Some parents are lucky to have kids
But your parents are one of those few
Who have got the best kid of all
And that is you, my dear nephew
You have done all of us proud
By turning out to be such a perfect boy
As you grow a year older today
I wish you happiness and joy
11) It was difficult to handle you
When you were really small
It isn't any different now
You still do things that appall
But even with all your antics
Crazy habits and strange ways
You are my favorite nephew
Who brightens all my days
12) Shall I tell you a secret
About you and me
But only if you promise
Between us, it will be
Did you know about this
That everyone who sees us
Hates that we share such a bond
And they become jealous
But I enjoy the moment
When they go green with envy
Because you are truly
The best nephew there can ever be
13) If all the nephews in the world had to compete
You would easily win the feat
You are the best nephew on this earth
And it would be very easy to prove your worth
Because I would be there to give testimony
Of the wonderful nephew that you can be
14) I know you have to meet your girlfriend today
Because she must have a lot of romantic things to say
I know you have to also meet your mates
On your birthday, you should not make them wait
But don't forget to meet your loving aunt too
Who has nothing but love for you
She wants to give you a hug and a kiss
To wish you on your special day, she would never miss
15) I hate being defeated at games
But there is one exception
When you are playing with me
I don't strive to be number one
That is because I want you to win
To see the pure joy on your face
While playing with me, now do you see
How you have won every game or race
Happy birthday, dear nephew
16) I still remember the day when you were small
But now you have grown into a boy, handsome and tall
When you were little, you clung to me
Now you are on your own two feet, I can see
You may be growing up to become more independent
But on your affection, your uncle will always be dependent
I wish you a happy birthday, my dear nephew
To yourself and to me, I hope you will always stay true
17) The joy of being an aunt is doubled
Because I have a nephew like you
The little pleasures of life seem bigger
Because you make every day seem new
Every trouble turns into a smile
And every sigh turns into a moment of joy
You make every day of my life fun
You are a true charmer, you birthday boy
18) When life gets heavy
And starts weighing down on me
I know that the solution is
Executing only one strategy
And that tactic is
Spending more time with you
By lifting my spirits up
You help me take a different view
That is why I love you so much
On you, I shower so much attention
And that is exactly what I will do today
To give you a smashing birthday celebration
19) To me, you have always been like a son
With whom, I have shared memories of fun
You are not just a nephew for me
You are as precious as my own blood would be
Have an awesome birthday this time around
For many happy journeys of life, may you be bound
Happy birthday, dear nephew
20) As you are growing old
I am growing older too
But that does not mean I will forget
The birthday of my dear nephew
My love for you will be the same
No matter how old I grow
Have an awesome birthday kit
Your uncle loves you, I hope you know
