Fathers Day Poems
Here are some of the most inspirational fathers day poetry that I could find for your use.
Be kind to thy father, for when thou wert young, Who loved thee so fondly as he? He caught the first accents that fell from thy tongue, And joined in thy innocent glee.
It matters not that Time has shed His thawless snow upon your head, For he maintains, with wondrous art, Perpetual summer in your heart.
--William Hamilton Hayne
WHO YOU ARE
You are What a man is to me The measure of integrity The teacher of right and wrong The warrior in the world – so strong You are The heart within the stone A light that always shone The constant center that does not change The welcome home that’s never strange You are My dad.
WHAT MAKES A DAD
God took the strength of a mountain, The majesty of a tree, The warmth of a summer sun, The calm of a quiet sea, The generous soul of nature, The comforting arm of night, The wisdom of the ages, The power of the eagle's flight, The joy of a morning in spring, The faith of a mustard seed, The patience of eternity, The depth of a family need, Then God combined these qualities, When there was nothing more to add, He knew His masterpiece was complete, And so, He called it ... Dad
I remember daddy's hands folded silently in prayer And reaching out to hold me, when I had a nightmare You could read quite a story in the callouses and lines Years of work and worry had left their mark behind I remember daddy's hands how they held my mama tight And patted my back for something done right There are things that I'd forgotten that I loved about the man But I'll always remember the love in daddy's hands Daddy's hands were soft and kind when I was crying Daddy's hands were hard as steel when I'd done wrong Daddy's hands weren't always gentle but I've come to understand There was always love in Daddy's hands. I remember Daddy's hands working 'til they bled Sacrificed unselfishly just to keep us all fed If I could do things over, I'd live my life again And never take for granted the love in Daddy's hands
THANK YOU DAD
You cradled me in arms so strong When I was young and did no wrong You read me stories through the night Chased the monsters, held me tight
You taught me how to walk so tall You raised me up at every fall You showed me how to drive a car Bait a hook, name the stars
You guided me as I grew up Pried me loose when I got stuck Helped me out when times got tough You never wavered in your love.
I thank you Dad for all you’ve done The lessons, the tears and the fun I thank you Dad for all your time I thank you Dad for being mine
