This Sunday is Father’s Day (which means if you haven’t gotten a present yet, you should probably get to it!). Figuring out what to say in the card to your dad is even more difficult than picking out his gift. After all, you’re pretty much positive he’ll enjoy that toolkit or cookbook you got him. But how can you express your thanks for the decades of love, life lessons, and ridiculous dad jokes? If you can’t find the words, try using one of these sentimental poems in your card. From the nostalgic to the lighthearted, these words will say it all for you.
He called it … 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,
He called it … Dad
Happy Fathers Day Poems From Son
Perhaps we’ll never understand each other.
Loving doesn’t mean that we agree.
If that were so, then I would say, why bother?
But there are things I know I’ll never see.
I’m sure your heart knows what I don’t yet know:
The pain of loving a reluctant son;
The anger, coming fast and building slow,
Of being helpless to control someone.
You want only that I grow up right,
But you know what right is, and I still don’t.
I have to learn to wield my inner light,
And if I follow yours, well, then I won’t.
I’m sorry for the anger in the air;
Though we fight, my love is always there.
A Father Is
There in every memory
See his love and care
Strength and hands to count on
Freely he does share
Provider, toil so faithfully
To make our dreams come true
Give strong and tender discipline
Though it is hard to do
A father is god’s chosen one
To lead the family
And point it to his will for life
Of love and harmony…
Fathers Day Poems From Daughter
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…
I love you, Dad, and want you to know,
I feel your love wherever I go.
Whenever I’ve problems, you’re there to assist,
The ways you have helped me would make quite a list.
Your wisdom and knowledge have shown me the way,
And I’m thankful for you as I live day by day.
I don’t tell you enough how important you are,
In my universe you’re a bright shining star.
Our childhood flew, watching you toil so hard!
Days and night appeared almost the same,
when we looked up to you.
And, every time we were infirm,
you stayed up all night with us.
And, was up and about for your business,
the very next day.
And, today when we fight on petty issues and end up laughing,
Life is blissful in your smile!
We have grown up seeing you fighting a battle of will,
to make both ends meet,
and, while doing so…
You always kept an eye on our health and well-being,
Standing tall for our families.
You are all the strength that we look upon.
Your forte lies in learning new things,
be it health-issues, horoscopes or English.
Didi has always been your sweetheart,
As you shared your learning’s and knowledge with her.
A disciplinarian! Yet, never short of Love and Care.
Be it for us, or for the society!
Today, as we still fight our battles to bring stability in our Life.
We feel stronger and better,
to have your constant blessing and Love bestowed on all of us!!!
You are our IDEAL,
And, will remain the Armour of our Life,
“Papa” (The Father) to us, forever!
Happy Father’s Day!!!
