As we celebrate Father’s Day this year, we’re reminded how extra special our dads are to us. Whether you’re writing him a card or simply don’t have the right words to tell him how special he is, here are a few inspiring words in the form of poetry that may help you along:
1. “In Her Eyes” — Michelle W. Emerson
2. “A Father Means” — Unknown
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 …
3. “My Father, My Father…”— Dakota Ellerton
My father/My father/Made me see/How beautiful this world can really be.
4. “Father” — Ella Wheeler Wilcox
There seemed to be a loving little prayer/In their voices, even when they called him ‘Dad’/Though the man was never heard of anywhere/As a hero, yet somehow understood/He was doing well his part and making good/And you knew it, by the way his children had/Of saying ‘Father.’
5. “As We Look Back” — Unknown
As we look back over time/We find ourselves wondering … Did we remember to thank you enough/For all you have done for us?/For all the times you were by our sides/To help and support us … To celebrate our successes/To understand our problems/And accept our defeats?/Or for teaching us by your example/The value of hard work, good judgment/Courage and integrity?
6. “Star Dad” — Karl Fuchs
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.
