Daddy, I Love You

You held me up when I was weak.
You hugged me close when tears I'd weep.
When things got hard, you pushed me through.
You always showed me you loved me true.
I know there were times I made you cry, and to this day,
I don't know why.
For without you, where would I be?
I am thankful God gave you to me.
Thanks Dad for you are one in a million.

I love your poem. I have never experienced a father's love...I've always longed to experience a father's love. But I'm grateful to God that He has never forsaken me.

Beautiful poem, really does emphasize the meaning of the word ''Dad''.
I don't have a dad but I do miss him, I've grown up without a Dad and I have missed out A LOT in life.
To all of those who do have a Dad in their life, please cherish the moments and Thank God for giving those precious moments to you
God Bless All Your Dads xx

I really loved this poem. All daughters who have that perfect Daddy will surely agree with me. My Father's love is infinite. I am what I am because of him and my mother. A child who grows up without a good father does miss out a lot in life. We all have just one Dad so we should always remember to show our love for our Dad. The word ''Daddy'' itself is a five-letter word and in Indian classical dance which I have learnt, there is a hand gesture - ''mudra'', as it is known in the ancient language of our scriptures which shows the five fingers joining in a symbol of strength. So, my father is my strength and I have learnt so much from him, none of can be taught in any classroom or read in any textbook. Love you Daddy!

I remember many years ago, I was engaged to be married. A year before I was to be married, I was having problems getting along with my fiancé and his immediate family. My father wasn't happy about what was going on and left me alone. Finally, when I broke my engagement, he was there for me and was very sympathetic.

This describes my dad very well!!! see I was in a foster home a while back and my dad was there he was in Florida, he was not my guardian at the time. And he got me plane tickets to live with him. I hated being in a foster home! The people are nice and caring. But I could not stop thinking about my dad. He cried because he did not know. I was the one who told him. He was there for me when I cried.and he has been there for me the whole time. I am so thankful for my dad I really don't know were I would be if I didn't have my dad!!!! I love him with all my heart I know he will forever and for always be there for me.
