Father's Day Poems

  • "Fatherly love brings wealth to living/Remembering this we go forth in giving/Fathers young, fathers old/We remember you all/As life unfolds," Author Unknown.
  • A Father means
"A Father means so many things...
An understanding heart,
A source of strength and support
right from the very start."
"A constant readiness to help
In a kind and thoughtful way.
With encouragement and forgiveness,"
"No matter what comes your way.
A special generosity and always affection, too.
A father means so many things
when he's a man like you...."

  • What is a Dad?
"A dad is someone who
Wants to catch you before you fall
But instead picks you up,
Brushes you off,
And lets you try again.
A dad is someone who
Wants to keep you from making mistakes
But instead lets you find your own way,
Even though his hearts breaks in silence
When you get hurt.
A dad is someone who
Holds you when you cry,
Scolds you when you break the rules,
Shines with pride when you succeed, and
Has faith in you even when you fail."
Author unknown

A Poems for a deceased father - Father's Day In Heaven

I love you and I miss you, Dad,
and though you've passed away,
you'll never be forgotten,
for I think of you each day.
If heaven celebrates this day
how special it will be.
A gathering of the many dads
upon our family tree.
Your father and grandfather
and great grandfather too.
How wonderful it is, if they
can spend this day with you.
May you know how much I love you,
though I'm here and you are there.
Happy Father's Day in heaven
to the best dad anywhere!
