Fathers Day Poems

Since today is Father’s Day, I thought it would be fitting to post a few poems about fathers.

The Perfect Father

I love you because you’re my father,
But you’re really so much more;
You’re a guide and a companion;
You and I have great rapport.

You pay attention to me;
You listen to what I say.
You pass on words of wisdom,
Helping me along the way.

Whenever I’m in trouble,
You always have a plan.
You are the perfect father,
And I’m your biggest fan!

By Karl and Joanna Fuchs

A Father’s Love

Is a Warm Embrace,
Or a Quick Hug
A Glowing Smile, and Your Wit and Wisdom…

A Fathers Love is a Walk in the Park
On a Hot Summer Day
A Drive in the Car, Down that Windy dirt Road

A Fathers Love is in the Poem Written
To ‘A Friend or Daughter,’
In the Special Words That Come Only From a Father…

A Fathers Love is in Fun Times Together
Camping under the Trees
Enjoying a picnic, and Walking through the Leaves…

A Fathers Love is Faith in His Family
High Hopes and Dreams, And Pleasure in Doing
‘What Ever It Takes’…

A Fathers Love is a Kiss on the Cheek
Or a Friendly Hand Shake
My Idol for Life, ‘I Will Treasure Dearly’…

by Carmen Strawn

Happy Father’s Day

Since the day that I was born
You have been my guiding light;
The one I always turn to
When things aren’t going right.

You are generous with your time
When I need a helping hand:
If sometimes I’m neglectful,
You always understand.

You’ve been my inspiration,
As the years have come and gone;
A gentle loving Father,
Whom I can depend upon.

So on this special Father’s Day
I send my thanks for all you do;
For no-one in the world deserves
More happiness than you.
