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

Happy birthday

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

Happy birthday

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

Happy birthday

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

Happy birthday

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

Happy birthday

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

Happy birthday

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

Happy birthday

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

Happy birthday

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

Happy birthday

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

Happy birthday

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

Happy birthday

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

Happy birthday

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

Happy birthday

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

Happy birthday
