A Father's Day Poem for My Father
My father is quite a simple man. He is easy to please and delights in every little favor bestowed upon him. He is a very artistic man; and can play a few musical instruments without much effort nor formal training. Being able to play the guitar, the organ or the flute is among his greatest passions. He is also a good artist, and had used his talent in providing for our basic needs.
I have already published a poem for my mother before. Now it's time to honor my father with a poem especially dedicated to him. As Father's Day nears, I would like him to read this; and I pray that this poem will also inspire others to honor their fathers.
My Father’s Love
My father’s love is selfless;
over the years he toiled and labored
to provide for our basic needs.
With his talent and his brush,
he painted and sketched his way
through life’s ups and downs
to raise his seven children.
My father’s love
is like a sparkling waterfall
that cascades in heightening crescendo;
as through the years he pours it on us
so freely and lavishly -
with no restriction, no condition
and no reservation.
Father's Day Gift Ideas (Health/Personal Care)
My father’s love –
like a strong anchor –
has ever held us all secure;
confident in the power of love
united in spirit and in thought
regardless of where we are now
and of what we have become.
My father’s love
is like a golden sunrise –
that breaks through gloomy nights
of hardships and poverty
and shines through misty skies
of despair and hopelessness
urging us to believe, and inspiring us to hope.
Father's Day Gift Ideas (Home & Garden)
My father, turning 76 this year,
has indeed gone through a lot.
His face, lined with the wisdom of age,
glows with pride and joy
whenever we come to visit them.
And those artist’s hands - now shaky and weak -
are still adept at playing the guitar,
the flute, and the keyboard.
My father may not be rich,
but he has given us the two greatest gifts
a father could ever give to his children –
selfless love and genuine affection -
boundless, unconditional, priceless.
And for those gifts, I give
my heartfelt and eternal gratitude
to my dear father
for without him by my side
and his godly wisdom to guide,
I may not become what I am now;
and I may not have accomplished
everything that I did.
