Father's Day Poems
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY!
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
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...
EVEN THOUGH WE'VE LIVED APART
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
