    Rhyming Father's Day Poem

    in Father's Day Poems

    When I scratched my knee,
    Or if I bumped my head,
    When I was afraid of the dark,
    Or that thing under my bed,
    When I cried in the night,
    Or even in the day,
    You were there for me
    To make it all okay.

    You tickled my feet
    And laughed at all my jokes.
    You taught me to believe
    In having high hopes.
    You are my father.
    You did what you had to do,
    But more than a father
    You are my friend, too.
    You made everything good
    That was once bad.
    I just want you to know
    I love you, Dad.

    Special Hero

    • By Christina M. Kerschen
    • Published: February 2006

    in Father Poems

    When I was a baby,
    you would hold me in your arms.
    I felt the love and tenderness,
    keeping me safe from harm.
    I would look up into your eyes,
    and all the love I would see.
    How did I get so lucky?
    You were the dad chosen for me.
    There is something special
    about a father's love.
    Seems it was sent to me
    from someplace up above.
    Our love is everlasting.
    I just wanted you to know
    that you're my special hero,
    and I wanted to tell you so.

    I don't know how it feels, but I sure understand what this poem is all about. How I wish my dad was caring. To me, he only carries the title and doesn't act the meaning.

    My dad was amazing in every way. I wrote this for him when he was in the hospital and put it on his wall so he always knew how much I loved him. He sadly passed away, so I put this poem in his hands so it was with him always. Love and miss you so much...always and forever...your baby girl!

    Dad Poem From Daughter

    in Father Poems

    I sit and look back to how far I can remember,
    And you are always there next to me.
    Each and every day you were helping me grow up,
    And making me be the best that I can be.

    Your love was forever strong,
    Your cuddles forever tight.
    Every day since I was born,
    Your love was always in sight.

    I will always be your Baby Girl,
    And you will always be my Dad.
    I know I will always be the luckiest
    To have the best Dad any girl could have had.

    My Daddy, I love you with all my heart,
    Much more than I ever say.
    You are my world, my everything,
    Each and every day.

    What kinds of heroes are there?

    A Different Kind Of Hero

    • By Kelsee Briscoe
    • Published: February 2006

    in Dad Poems by Teens

    He is not the kind of hero who is fighting in the war.
    He is not one who sails offshore.

    I don't call him Sergeant, Captain, or Sir.
    His title is DAD; that is for sure!

    He is the fixer of my broken things
    And the household doctor when I get bee stings.

    He picks me up when I fall down
    And always turns my frown upside down.

    He keeps me safe when I sleep at night.
    He gives me seconds when I have a big appetite.

    That's my Dad. That's who he is.
    He deserves a medal for the things he did.

    A letter of love to a loving dad

    My Miracle Dad

    • By Crystal M. Deprey
    • Published: February 2006

    in Father Poems

    I know that I'm not perfect, and I'm sure you know that too,
    But it means the world to know that I can always talk to you.
    I am sure you didn't expect all this when you took me in to stay.
    But you still loved me enough that you did it anyway.
    You always seemed so calm, when deep down you were so scared,
    And no matter how serious it was, you always seemed prepared.
    I know I'm lucky to have you here, after all that you've been through,
    And no matter what just happened, I can always say I love you.
    You always can forgive me, even when times get bad,
    And I'll love you until the day I die, because you are my miracle dad!

    Father's Day Poem For Stepdad

    in Father's Day Poems

    I'm just sitting here thinking about what you mean to me,
    Remembering all the things you've done for me.
    You've been there for me from the start,
    Knowing what to say to keep me from falling apart,
    Taking everything that comes your way good or bad.
    Even though you're not my father, you'll always be my dad.
    I can't count high enough for every time you went out of your way.
    Knowing you're there keeps me going every day.
    When I need encouragement, you're the first to give it.
    When I have a problem, you always have the best advice to fix it.
    I could sit here and say, "Thank you," from now till I die, but it wouldn't be enough.
    I can only wish if I went through what you did I could be so tough.
    I'll always love you unconditionally
    From now till eternity.

    Daddy, I Love You

    in Father Child Poems

    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.

    Just a bit about my dad and me. I have two sisters, and my parents are divorced. I see my father as often as I can, but I never see my mother; she now lives in another state, but she used to live only hours away and could have visited me. But she only visited my sisters who were in a completely different state. Anyway, I do have a step-mother who is awesome. My dad is my rock, and since it is Father's Day soon, I wrote this poem.

    My Father And Me

    in Family Poems for Kids

    You're the one with open arms
    When the darkness closes in.
    When the shadows come and the nightmares make it hard to sleep,
    You're always there to chase them all away.
    You were there with every skinned knee and every time I cried.
    When I messed up, you were there to show me what I did wrong.
    When you went to work in your big truck,
    I waited patiently at the window for my daddy to arrive.
    As I got older and wanted different things,
    The one thing that never changed
    Was running into my daddy's arms.

    A son writes a poem to his father, telling his dad just how terrific he is.

    To A Terrific Dad

    • By David L. Helm
    • Published: February 2006

    in Father Child Poems

    To a dad who is terrific,
    To a dad who's real neat,
    To a dad who makes the best of things,
    Even when they're not so sweet!

    To a dad who's growing older,
    To a dad who's going gray,
    To a dad who just gets smarter,
    It would seem from day to day!

    To a dad who has potential,
    To a dad who is the best,
    To a dad who's been successful,
    And who drowns out all the rest!

    To a dad I admire,
    To a dad I can trust,
    To a dad I appreciate.
    That's what makes this rhyme a must!

    To a dad I call father,
    To a dad who's held it through,
    To a dad I'll love forever,
    Because Dad, you know it's YOU!

    A Poem For Dad

    in Dad Poems by Teens

    You're more than a dad
    But a kind, loving man

    You showed me the ways
    In which I stand

    You taught me good from bad
    And all there is to know

    I love you so much,
    And your gentleness shows

    You care for me and love me so much
    You watch over me with your gentle touch

    You make me feel special
    With all the love you show

    Thank you, dad, for being there for me
    Through the rough and so

    You're not only my dad
    But a best friend, it's true

    For I love you so much
    And this is from me to you

    I Love My Daddy Poem

    in Father Poems

    My daddy looks tough as nails
    And hard as metal.
    But the truth is easy to tell
    He's sweet and loving
    And can always understand me.
    Patient he is,
    And he always makes a big difference in my everyday life.
    Always managing to put a smile on my face.
    Even when his days aren't so good.
    My daddy is my hero.
    He is my best friend I can always trust,
    And I don't have to worry about being misjudged.
    He is my daddy,
    And above everybody, he is who makes me feel very happy.
    The truth is, I love my daddy.

    Poem About The Greatest Man In The World

    in Father Child Poems

    I have the very perfect dad,
    That is something anyone could see.
    But I don't know if I've told him
    Exactly what he means to me.

    Perhaps he thinks I've missed his lessons
    Or that we've grown apart,
    But Dad, I've picked up every one;
    They're forever written on my heart.

    My dad is gentle but strong
    And knows right from wrong.
    He will sit with me all through the night,
    That is why he is my glowing light.

    My dad is like the stars,
    Somehow he's always there.
    My dad is someone who will always help,
    Who shows support and will always care.

    My dad is like a book, the endings are never clear.
    But through the pages, his love is always near.
    My dad will always be; he helps define just who I am
    And is part of me eternally.

    When times are good, when times are bad,
    The greatest man in the world will forever be...my dad.

    Poem For A Good Dad

    in Father's Day Poems

    A Dad is someone you can count on
    Someone who is always there
    Someone who listens when you talk
    Who knows when you are lying
    And when you are telling the truth
    A Dad is someone who protects you
    And cares about you
    A Dad is always kind
    And understands what you say
    He understands what is wrong
    And makes you feel okay
    A Dad is someone who loves you
    No matter what you do
    A Dad is someone just like you

    Dad,
    I love you.
    Whenever I saw you,
    You would put a smile on my face.
    You cheered me up
    When I was feeling down.
    You cheered me on
    When I was doing good,
    You made me laugh and giggle,
    Whenever you tickled me on my feet,
    Whenever I fell,
    You would pick me up and put me back on my feet.
    You made me proud
    When you never gave up and you kept trying.
    You never let anything stand in your way.
    That's why I love you!

    in Father's Day Poems

    Daddy, Daddy sit me on your knee.
    Together we will always be.
    Closest of friends,
    From beginning to end.
    You always knew what was best,
    While you guided me through trials and tests.
    You were always there,
    Never ashamed to be my teddy bear.
    Looking up at the stars,
    You're holding me in your arms.
    I'm wrapped up so tight,
    I could not escape with all my might.
    You're my protector; you're my shield
    From life's playing field.
    I want to thank you from my heart.
    I believe that nothing could ever tear us apart.

    Friendship With Dad

    in Father Poems

    Not many people can say
    they have a true friend
    Someone that stands by your side
    and shows devotion with no end
    The person that encourages you
    to reach for your dreams and goals
    The one that understands the hardships
    hidden deep within your soul
    That person that stays up at night
    When you need a listening ear
    The only person in the world
    that knows your deepest fear
    That shoulder that you cry on
    When life doesn't go according to plan
    They help you dust yourself off
    and muscle the strength to stand
    That person you can count on
    When times are good and bad
    Someone you're blessed with...
    I call mine Dad!

    Daddy I Love You

    in Father's Day Poems

    Here in my heart
    my daddy will stay.
    He nurtured and cared,
    he held me tight when I was scared.
    my best friend, my teacher in life
    I saw the tears in my daddy's eyes
    when I said I love you.
    I meant it so deeply.
    You always carried me to bed
    whenever I got sleepy.
    You tried to do my hair
    and got it tangled every time,
    but I never cared
    playing the guitar, strum at a time
    while I danced around you
    You never once sighed
    I'm your little girl and I always will be
    Even when I forty I'll still sit on your knee
    This day is yours, I want to say
    I love you dearly! Happy Father's Day

    My Dad is my hero,
    my hero he is.
    I really think
    I'm his favorite kid.

    He tucks me in at night
    tells me "Sweet Dreams,
    don't let the beg bugs bite"

    With popcorn by our side
    We'll watch TV together
    Just me, daddy and I.

    My dad is my hero,
    my hero he is.
    I really know
    I'm his favorite kid.
