Father's Day Poems

Updated on March 4, 2018


Here are three great Father's Day poems to share with your Dad, Grandfather, Uncle or whoever has been a great Father figure in your life. During this special time of the year or any time of the year is a great time to show Dad how much you love and appreciate him.

My Dad was such a great loving Father and provider. These poems are dedicated to him and loving Fathers everywhere.

Father's Are Wonderful People

Fathers are wonderful people

too little understood,

And we do not sing their praises

as often as we should...

For, somehow, father seems to be

the man who pays the bills,

While Mother binds up little hurts

and nurses all our ills...

And Father struggles daily

to live up to "his image"

As protector and provider

and "hero of the scrimmage"...

And perhaps that is the reason

we sometimes get the notion

That Father's are not subject

to the things we call emotion,

But if you look inside Dad's heart,

where no one else can see,

You'll find he's sentimental

and as "soft" as he can be...

But he's so busy every day

in the grueling race of life,

He leaves the sentimental stuff

to his partner and his wife...

But fathers are just wonderful

in a million different ways,

And they merit loving compliments

and accolades of praise,

For the only reason Dad aspires

to fortune and success

Is to make the family proud of him

and to bring them happiness...

And like Our Heavenly Father,

he's a guardian and a guide,

Someone that we can count on

to be always on our side.

Helen Steiner Rice


Our father's toil with hand and heart

To make our lives complete.

They quietly brave the winter cold,

Endure the summer heat.

Our fathers' lives are busy, but

There's always time for us.

They boldly face the ups and downs

And seldom ever fuss.

Our fathers are the greatest dads.

We know you know this, too.

But thank you for the chance to share

Our love for them with you.

A Father means so many things...

An understanding heart,

A source of strength and of support

Right from the very start.

A constant readiness to help

In a kind and thoughtful way.

With encouragement and forgiveness

No matter what comes your way.

A special generosity and always affection, too

A Father means so many things

When he's a man like you...

Author Unknown


Even though we've lived apart,

I do not love you less.

There's provision in the heart

For storing tenderness.

There's a love that like a star

Must reconfigure space

To turn the far-flung wanderers

Towards some predestined grace.

Time matters not, nor pain, nor death,

Nor fate as hard as stone.

This truth needs but a single breath,

And that we now have known.

Ah, Father! What a joy to live

With love at last expressed!

Life has no greater gift to give

Than that with which we're blessed


To My Father

It matters not that time has shed

His thawless snow upon his head,

For he maintains, with wonderous art,

Perpetual summer in your heart.

William Hamilton Hayne

      I have been looking for a poem for my husband and father of three. It has been difficult to find one that sums him up so eloquently. Although I still have not found the perfect one, I have found one that reminds me of him. Thank you for "Father's Are Wonderful People."
