Stability, boundedness and existence of a unique periodic solution to certain second order nonlinear delay differential equations is discussed. By employing Lyapunov's direct (or second) method, a complete Lyapunov functional is constructed and used to establish sufficient conditions, on the nonlinear terms, that guarantee uniform asymptotic stability, uniform ultimate boundedness and existence of a unique periodic solution. Obtained results complement many outstanding recent results in the literature. Finally, examples are given to show the effectiveness of our method and correctness of our results.
