A Poem For Daddy
I won’t be long now daddy
only four more months to go ..
You listen to mummy’s tummy
and see how much i grow.
You have two little pictures
so you can see I’m really here ..
I can’t wait to spend some time, with
you and bring your life some cheer.
I have ten little fingers
and ten little toes ..
Two little eyes
and a cute little nose.
I can’t wait to meet you
I know we both will have fun ..
I want a cuddle from my daddy
show me life can be fun.
I hold out my hand to you
look into my eyes ..
Mummy loves you daddy
I will tell you no lies.
I know my mummy loves you
With every breath she takes.
Taking time to remember
when i was so small ..
We didn’t have much
but i still had it all.
If you made a promise
that promise was kept ..
If i knew how it cost
how i would have wept.
You worked every day
so i could have all ..
Then even found time
for us to play ball.
How fast I grew up
and dad you got old ..
But I didn’t notice
you started to fold.
And now is the time
to lay you to rest ..
Seeya Dad my mate
with you I was blessed.
A Boy And His Dad
A boy and his dad on a fishing-trip
There is a glorious fellowship!
Father and son and the open sky
And the white clouds lazily drifting by,
And the laughing stream as it runs along
With the clicking reel like a martial song,
And the father teaching the youngster gay
How to land a fish in the sportsman’s way.
I fancy I hear them talking there
In an open boat, and the speech is fair.
And the boy is learning the ways of men
From the finest man in his youthful ken.
Kings, to the youngster, cannot compare
With the gentle father who’s with him there.
And the greatest mind of the human race
Not for one minute could take his place.
Which is happier, man or boy?
The soul of the father is steeped in joy.
For he’s finding out, to his heart’s delight
That his son is fit for the future fight.
He is learning the glorious depths of him
And the thoughts he thinks and his every whim.
And he shall discover, when night comes on
How close he has grown to his little son.
A boy and his Dad on a fishing-trip
Builders of life’s companionship!
Oh, I envy them, as I see them there
Under the sky in the open air.
For out of the old, old long-ago
Come the summer days that I used to know.
When I learned life’s truths from my father’s lips
As I shared the joy of his fishing-trips.

Why God Created Fathers
When God created Fathers
He made two loving arms ..
To cradle us and shelter us
from the worldly harm.
When God created Fathers
He made a pair of hands ..
To care for us and guide us through
our choices and our plans.
When God created Fathers
He made the warmest heart ..
To understand and give our lives
a happy, loving start.
Why God created Fathers
is not a mystery . .
He meant to share His love
with us and did it perfectly.
Thank You Dad
Thank you for the laughter
For the good times that we share ..
Thanks for always listening
For trying to be fair.
Thank you for your comfort
When things are going bad ..
Thank you for the shoulder
To cry on when I’m sad.
This poem is a reminder that
All my life through ..
I’ll be thanking Heaven
For a Special Dad like you.
What Is A Father?
A father is someone who’s always around
when you’re stuck for some friendly advice ..
A father is someone who knows how you feel
and who’ll help you without thinking twice.
A father is someone so thoughtful and kind
he’s made his own place in your heart ..
A father is someone you wish all life’s best
with the love that’s been his from the start.
What You Mean To Me
You mean so very much to me
And I want you to know ..
That you are always in my heart
No matter where I go.
You’re always giving, always there
To help in any way ..
The loving things you’ve done for me,
I never could repay.
I can’t imagine what I’d do
Without the love you give ..
I’ll treasure your sweet heart of gold
As long as I shall live.
Being A Dad
Being a dad, is more than a day
More than a thank-you, or annual display.
Your laughter and caring, adventure and humor
So giving, befitting the honor of father.
I couldn’t have picked a better man
To travel through life, with our crazy clan.
You’re my husband, my hero, and may I suggest
A wonderful father – the best of the best!
There is that special person
who has brought such joy to me ..
who in many ways has made my life
the best that it can be.
I feel fortunate just to know this person
and I think you should know, too ..
when I think of special people
I always think of you.
Only One Father
Millions of stars in the heavens above
Only one father to cherish and love.
Thousands and thousands of flowers and trees
Hundreds and hundreds of mountains and seas.
Everything multiplied over and over
Robins and butterflies, bees in the clover.
Many good friends to think the world of
But only one father to cherish and love.
Doing special favors
in a dozen different ways ..
Looking out for others
with no thought of
thanks or praise.
Living for your family
setting good examples, too ..
These make a loving father
and they all apply to you.
Love You Dad
Too big to sit upon your knee
Too old to have you read to me.
Too far from you, too many miles
Too many days without your smiles.
So much to do, but had to say
love you! Everyday.
Each day I get older and perhaps
a bit more wise ..
And Dad, the more I understand
the more I realize.
That you’ve been simply wonderful
since I was very small ..
And I’ve been blessed for certain
with the finest Dad of all!
My sense of humor comes from you
And all the funny things you do.
You make my world a better place,
And put a smile upon my face!
When I was young, you helped me grow
And taught me all I had to know.
Of love and trust and faith and hope
And everything it takes to cope.
You may have thought I didn’t hear
but, all the things you taught to me
were heeded very carefully.
And now I want to thank you for
Your love, your care, and so much more!
The Man of My Life
Your hair is getting grayer
You are thinner and weaker
Your pants and shirts
seem too big for you.
Your wrinkles look deeper
Your eyes are dimmer
I count more liver spots
On your hands and face.
Yet your smile remains the same
Your eyes still twinkle and shine
Even now, I love to hear your voice
advising and comforting me.
I remember those days
when you were tall and strong
You held my hand, wiped my tears
sang songs and made me laugh.
Let me take care of you now
I hope to be a comfort to you too
as you were, so many years ago
when I was your little girl, Dad.
Words aren’t easy
when feelings run deep
But still, there’s one thing
you should know ..
.. The values you gave me
the lessons you taught
are with me wherever I go ..
And loving a Dad who’s
as special as you is
something, I’ll never outgrow.
You were always there as I grew up
you taught me good from bad ..
You were my rock to lean on
I’m so proud that you’re my Dad
Thank You Dad
I find myself wondering.
did I give you your due ..
For all that you’ve done for me
did I ever thank you?
For all of my childhood memories
for helping me deal with life’s stresses ..
For helping me accept my defeats
and celebrate my successes?
Or for teaching me the value of hard work
good judgment, courage, and being true ..
The laughter, smiles and quiet times
we’ve shared, did I ever thank you?
If I have forgotten, I’m thanking you now
you taught me right from wrong ..
I hope you know how much you’re loved
I hope you, instinctively, knew all along.
What Makes a Dad?
The joy of a morning in spring
The faith of a mustard seed ..
The patience of eternity
The depth of a family need.
Then God combined these qualities
And there was nothing more to add ..
He knew his masterpiece was complete
And He called it – Dad.
My family plays lots of games
and sometimes I feel bad ..
No matter what, from sports to chess
I always beat my dad!
I know he’s trying really hard
in every game we play ..
I see the glimmer in his eye
but things just go my way.
Sure, he never moans or whines
I’ve never seen him crying ..
But I’m afraid if this keeps up
then one day he’ll stop trying.
And so today, I have a plan
although he’ll never know it ..
When we play games, I’ll let him win!
so I hope he doesn’t blow it.
