A Poem Of Love For Father's Day: My Father's Day Poem For My Husband Bob

Father's Day Poem For Bob

My Bob is something special - he always has been but over the 30+ years of child-rearing, he has shown himself to be one class act. It seemed only fitting therefore that I honor the love of my life with a Father's Day poem just for him.

This one is for you, sweetie! You made the ride all worth it and no matter what you may ever worry about, don't worry about being a good father. I think you aced that one!

If there was a way to infuse what you've done so easily into other men, you could sell it and make a fortune. Better yet, you would be a blessing to many, many children out there and I only wish more had had the pleasure to have you for a dad. Of course, it's never too late.....


As I reflect on what a father should be

I come back to you inevitably

As a child the one thing I longed for

Was a dad who lived it, who I could adore




As you and I built our life together

We hit some bumps, some stormy weather

Never once did you waver, never once did you fall

No matter how hard, you trudged through it all


Our kids saw you tear up, saw you break down

They’ve also witnessed you being a clown

Through all of their lives, parts big or small

The epitome of a man were you most of all


By being and doing and loving them true

Gave them confidence to see things through

You showed by example how to be kind

To give always foremost in one’s mind


They thought it better to go with the flow

Truth instead you taught them to know

Lessons taught they remember today

Some having been learned the hard way


You taught them things they should know

Walking life's path, which way to go

I see love for you in their eyes

You’re dad – the best, the perfect prize


You worry sometimes you made mistakes

Matters not because you had what it takes

To love, to teach and to always forgive

To show them to love and then how to live


Success rests mostly in their hands

Having an example shaped their plans

Men have a hard time loving it seems

But you’ve fulfilled all our dreams


Wonderful father, the best to be had

I’ll love you forever for your role as ‘Dad’

Don’t fret so much, wish for new starts

You will forever be pressed in our hearts
