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.

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

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

And tell me we have to talk,
Immediately I think the worst,

Poem About A Father's Love For His Child

In Her Eyes

Poetry Quote

The depth of a father's love shows in his daughter's eyes.
What's known is what's shown from sunset to sunrise.
A foundation built on more than just what is spoken.
It's commitments kept and promises that go unbroken.

You worked your fingers to the bone, to make sure we always had a good home....
