Poems for your Father's Day Cards.
If you have an idea for a card, but can't come up with the right wording, there are some sites out there with fun and touching Father's Day poems. If this is Dad's first Father's Day, consider buying him a useful new dad gift or make a print of your baby's hand with a poem for his/her daddy.
Here is one for example:
Daddy, I Love You
Daddy, I love you
For all that you do.
I'll kiss you and hug you
'Cause you love me, too.
You feed me and need me
To teach you to play,
So smile 'cause I love you
On this Father's Day.
