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.

    But with a dad's love, who cares?

    Poem About When A Father Leaves For War

    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.

  4. My Little Boogie

    Poem From A Divorced Dad To His Daughter

    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 to wipe your tears when you wept

    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 :(
