Father Child Poems

Poems for Fathers

Many men will agree that being a father is the most rewarding relationship that they have. Children begin by loving their fathers unconditionally. It is a clean slate. There is nothing the father has to do to earn his child's love. The difficult part is not losing it. As the child goes out into the world, he will see all kinds of men whom he will look to as models as well. It is crucial that his father stay active in his life and help him make intelligent decisions. A boy without a father will look elsewhere to fill his father's shoes.

Clutches

There's a little boy standing by the fence with a flag in his hand.
He's sad and confused; he doesn't understand.
He watches his daddy turn and head up on the bus.
He watches him go and doesn't even fuss.

A Daughter's Cure

Sometimes life throws us curveballs
And nothing he does is fair
We know we have a lot of differences
But with a dad's love, who cares?

You come to me with sadness in your eyes,
And tell me we have to talk,
Immediately I think the worst,
'Is it me? Does she want to walk?'

Poem From A Divorced Dad To His Daughter
My Little Boogie

They call you Boogie because you danced before you walked
They call you Boogie because you sang before you talked
We were there for you when you took your first steps
We were there for you to wipe your tears when you wept

Barely getting up with my eyes half shut,
Getting ready and packing up dad's truck,
Hoping to catch some fish down at the dock....

The day will come when it's time to go,
But first there are a few things I would like you to know.
You're the strongest man I ever knew, and the one I've always looked up to.
You worked your fingers to the bone, to make sure we always had a good home....

I love this poem. The same four words I fear of saying as well. I've feared saying it ever since I was taken out of his care. When I read it I started crying so much :(
