Thanks for the keys,

To the car Dad.

I filled the tank back up.

I stopped and had it washed and waxed.

Didn't spill any pop inside from my cup.

All eyes were definitely on me today.

As I rode around doing errands,

To help you and mom save time,

To show you that I'm caring.

I'm caring,

And responsible,

I'm gonna do my part,

To make our household run better.

Even when I can't get the keys to the car,

You'll always have the key to my heart.



F is for fearless,

My dad is that you know.

A is for all

The places that we go.

T is for talking,

He says, I do that much too much!

H is for happiness ,

He always gives me that in a bunch.

E is for enthusiastic ,

Maybe the longest word in the world.

I can barely say that word.

But I'm told, it is how I feel

Being Daddy's special little girl!

R is for

All these reasons,

He's the best dad in the world!




Dear dad,

On this special day

I'd just like you to know,

Thank you for all the ways

You taught me to grow.

Thank you for your descipline

It's helped me to be strong

In making life decisions

All the day long.

Thank you for your humor,

It's put a smile on my face.

It's helped me impart laughter

In many a needed place.

Thank you for your tenacity

it's helped me stay focused

On what is right, and what is wrong

And avoiding lots of jokers.

Thank you for your Love.

In doses big and small

It's carried me throughout the years

And it's made me,

Oh so tall.

                                             D. Alsup




I may not say it often,

I may not say it loud,

I may not say it to you,

But I am,

Oh so proud.

I'm proud to have you

As my father.

I'm proud to have you,

As my friend.

Dad I'm glad,

I am your daughter.

I'll love ya til the end!

                          D. ALSUP



Sometimes I get so mad,

And even feel so sad

To think you may,

Love me less,

Because I am so bad.

I spill the milk.

I break a glass.

I lose your keys.

I talk too fast.

I burned my toast.

House full of smoke.

I tore your shirt.

I'm always playing in dirt.

But when I see you,

All my sadness,

Begins to melt away.

When you say,

Those magic words,

"How's Daddy's, Little Girl Today?"





As a child I have always enjoyed reading and writing poetry and prose. I enjoy a variety of verse.

There has always been a special bond between fathers and daughters. These poems are dedicated to the love a daughter has for her father.

All poems are by D. Alsup, a favorite poet of mine.

Thank You for visiting. Let us know if you enjoyed the poems. If you have any poetry for Father's Day for Kids you would like to share, please send us a comment with your selections for all to enjoy.

      Thanks so much Katharella, So sorry to hear about your Dad. It is nice to read about your love for him. I truly enjoyed your red shoe poem, "The Gift."

      I invite you to read my hubs about my dad. I have one poem I wrote that defines us, that special bond between father & daughter. I think you have to read the others to understand the poem better, although it does pretty much say it all. Look for the sparkling red shoes. :) -Kathy
