Our Dear Dad
(In Loving Memory Dad Poems)

Although we are apart now
you’re always in our hearts ..
In every single thing we do
you play the biggest part.

When we have to make decisions
and we don’t know what to do ..
Our thoughts, we find
will go right back to you.

We think of how you’d handle it
and try to work it out ..
It’s at times like this
we’ll really miss having you about.

Not only for this reason
when things are going bad ..
There’s a million different reasons
why we’ll miss you Dad.

Quiet Moments
(In Loving Memory Dad Poems)

When I was young I used to love
to sit upon your knee ..
I’d gaze into your loving eyes
as your arms enfolded me.

Your gentle kiss would stir
the golden tendrils of my hair ..
as whispered sentiments of love
we quietly would share.

We’d read a book together
the same time after time ..
I knew all of the words by heart
you didn’t seem to mind.

When darkness fell you tucked me in
and gently kissed my cheek ..
You’d wish upon a shooting star
the Lord my soul to keep.

The years have passed so quickly
death parted you from me ..
I hope you know how much it meant
when I sat upon your knee.

Gazing to the heavens
as I quietly reminisce ..
I’d give a million of those stars
to feel your gentle kiss.

I’d give all my tomorrows
to hear you read to me ..
and remember those quiet moments
when I sat upon your knee.

My Father Through The Years – By Ann Landers | Father In Loving Memory Poems

My Father Through The Years
(In Loving Memory Dad Poems)

When I was 4 years old –
‘My Daddy can do anything’
When I was 5 years old –
‘My Daddy knows a whole lot’
When I was 6 years old –
‘My Dad is smarter than your Dad’
When I was 8 years old –
‘My Dad doesn’t know exactly everything’
When I was 10 years old –
‘In the olden days when my Dad grew up,
things were so different’
When I was 12 years old –
‘Oh well, naturally Dad doesn’t
know anything about that,
he is too old to remember his childhood’
When I was 14 years old –
‘Don’t pay any attention to my Dad,
he is so old fashioned’
When I was 21 years old –
Him? He’s hopelessly out of date!’
When I was 25 years old –
‘Dad knows about it but then he should,
he’s been around so long.’
When I was 30 years old –
‘Maybe we should ask Dad
what he thinks, after all,
he’s had a lot of experience’
When I was 35 years old –
‘I’m not doing a single
thing until I talk to Dad!’
When I was 40 years old –
‘I wonder how Dad would’ve
handled it, he was so wise’
When I was 50 years old –
‘I’d give anything if Dad were here now
so I could talk this over with him.
Too bad I didn’t appreciate how smart he was.
I could’ve learned a lot from him.’

Memories of Dad | Dad In Loving Memory Poems

Memories of Dad
(Dad In Loving Memory Poems)

I will take this special moment
To turn my thoughts to Dad ..
Thank him for the home he gave
For all the things we had.

We think about the fleeting years
Too quickly, gone for good ..
It seems like only yesterday
I’d go back if I could.

A time when Dad was always there
No matter what the weather ..
Always strong when things went wrong
He held our lives together.

He strived so hard from day to day
And never once complained ..
With steady hands, he worked so hard
And kept the family name.

He taught us that hard work pays off
You reap just what you sow ..
He said that if you tend your crops
Your field will overflow.

My life has been bountiful
He taught me how to give ..
In his firm and steadfast way
He taught me how to live.

Dad dwells among the angels now
He left us much too soon ..
He glides across a golden field
Above the harvest moon.

I see him in the summer rain
He rides upon the wind ..
And when my path is beaten down
He picks me up again.
