Some People Would Say You’re Not My Real Dad

Some People Would Say
You’re Not My Real Dad
(Step-dad Poems)

Some people would say you’re not my real Dad
but we know this isn’t true ..
For you’ve been a Real Dad to me
in all the things we’ve been through.

We’ve had our ups and downs
sometimes its hard to bend ..
But you’ve always been there when I needed you
and that’s what matters in the end.

You’ve been patient, kind and firm
over the years as I’ve grown ..
And I’m eternally grateful to you
because you’ve treated me as your own.

Although we’re not tied by bloodlines
the Love and Trust you’ve given me ..
Is a precious gift, day after day
and that’s what counts as a Real Dad to me.

A Step-Father Means So Many Things

A Step-Father Means So Many Things
(Step-dad Step-father Poems)

I know I haven’t always said
how I appreciate, all that you do ..
So I’m saying now, how blessed I feel
to have a Step-dad like you.

I never got to choose you
You just became my ‘Dad’ ..
So I’m grateful to my mother
for the great taste that she had.

A step father means so many things
like an understanding heart ..
A source of strength and of 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 step father means so many things
when he’s a great man like YOU!

The Dad He Didn’t Have To Be | Step-dad Step-father Poems

The Dad He Didn’t Have To Be
For My Dad

I know I didn’t tell you enough
but I think you should know ..
How much I care, how I love you
how much you’ve helped me grow.

Before you came into my world
I had no-one to call “Dad” ..
You leaped the hurdle
(even though you’re short!)
I don’t think you did half bad.

Now I sit here so far from home
living in this distant place ..
Wishing I could sit and have a beer
and to see your ugly old face.

You mean the world to me my Dad
and you might not think it’s true ..
When the day comes, a family I start
I hope to be, a Dad like you.

So many years have passed us now
since I was a little lad ..
Though I’m no longer so little these days
I’m still glad to call you “Dad”.

Now I stand here so far away
in the mirror what do I see? ..
Someone who hopes, I can be but half
of the Dad You didn’t have to be.

This is hard to say, it’s harder to write
but it comes straight from my heart ..
When I tell you that I’ve loved you as Dad
right from the very start.

When I get old I know you’ll still
always be there with me ..
I hope my kids have half the Dad
that you did not have to be.

Now I just want to thank you Dad
from the bottom of my heart ..
For always being there as my Dad
and loving me from the start.

And when my kids get older
and I, sit with grand kids on knee ..
I pray I make, half the Grandpa
I know you’re going to be.

Eulogy for My Step-dad | Step-dad Step-father Poems

Eulogy for My Step-dad

I can’t believe he’s gone
He’s left our world behind ..
And though he’s moving on
His light will always shine.

In everything he taught me
with every truth he shared ..
The love he gave so freely
and the way he always cared.

His loyalty, his honesty
His humor and his pride ..
Always shall inspire me
to cast my fears aside.

“Go after your dreams
with all your heart!”
is what he used to say ..
And now though it seems
that we’re worlds apart
He has not gone away.

His spirit still shall lift me
His smile will remain ..
Part of everything we see.
in our joy and in our pain.

He will always feel our love
we are forever blessed ..
And as he watches from above
we’ll try to do our best.
