Father's Day Poem

Father's Day Poem To A Single Dad From His Daughter

I wrote this poem for my father who is the light of my life. He's a single dad who has raised me and now raises my little sister, and I hope that one day she will have this to remember him by. It describes how a father should be, how he has stood beside me through my troubles and continues to this day. I'm sure a lot of you will be able to relate to this poem with your own fathers and maybe it will make some think of their dad and know to cherish every moment because every moment counts.

My Father's Love

Published: June 2014

My father's love never places judgment on me,
his love comes unconditional and unselfishly.

For all the things you've done to show how much you care,
always remains as a reminder that you will always be there.

I'll never forget the affection you have shown in so many ways,
faithful to me, as a father you have never missed a day.

The way you look at me with that twinkle in your eye,
no matter my situation lets me know I'll be alright.

You have taught me the difference between right and wrong,
and as I became a woman, you taught me to be strong.

I'll always be grateful for you being there through my struggles and my strife,
because of your encouragement, you taught me the meaning of life.

Now you raise my little sister who is so close to your heart,
another little girl from whom her father she can't stand to part.

As she's just a baby now I watch you teach her as she grows,
and I sit back and I smile because one day she will know,

This special man who she calls dad is the one person who will be there when she's happy or she's sad.

When she is grown there will be no doubt in her mind,
of the father she loved who never left her behind.

Each day as you look in the mirror, I pray that you see,
there is no one in the world who will ever mean more to my sister and me.

Thank you for writing that beautiful poem! I'm one of those Dads. Thank you for the encouragement!! I'm still in the storm, so to read this, especially from a daughter who has made it through, is wonderful. I know my daughter will appreciate what I'm doing today even more when she becomes a woman, but outside encouragement is welcome here!!!

Thank you!
