  1. 21. This Is Why I Love You!

    • By Latasha Huffman
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems November 2008

    I wrote this poem because my father died this year on September 20, 2008. I loved my father more than anything, He was a wonderful father. He was here for me when I needed him to be here for me.

    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!

  2. 22. My Perfect Dad

    • By Samantha K
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2016

    I wrote this poem to my dad as a birthday present. It's a way of saying thanks for being the "perfect" dad.

    Poem About The Greatest Man In The World

    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.

  3. 23. A Soldier's Reason

    • By Jason E. Rose
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    A father leaves his son for the noblest of reasons.

    I can remember the first time that I
    saw your smiling face,
    I held you close to my heart, you could
    probably hear it race.
    I changed your first diaper, and I know
    it took a while.
    You're daddy's baby boy, and you're the
    perfect child.
    It's been about two months now, and I
    don't have much to give,
    so daddy must leave for a while so that
    you may live.
    When I come back, son, I know you won't
    remember me,
    but we'll build a bond at the fishing
    pond with unforgetable memories.
    It's time for me to go now, son, to build
    a soldier's legacy,
    to fight a war in another land; someday
    you will be proud of me.
    Not so much for country, not so much
    for pride.
    But for you, my baby boy, for your
    future I would die.

  4. 24. Betrayal

    • By Mitsuko Paul
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2008

    I was inspired to write this because of how my family was living and how we got treated.

    Not Trusting Father

    We trusted you with all our hearts,
    Just to find that you didn't care.
    No more lies, no more cries.
    It's all over; there's no more time.
    You had your chance to make it right,
    But you just gave up the fight.
    How can we believe you now?
    You broke our hearts once again
    And we're not proud of what you did.
    All the cries we gave to you,
    All the time we spent with you.
    How could you treat us like you do?
    We loved you and this is what we get.
    A part of us wants to let it go, but the rest of us just said no.
    This is how I feel right now,
    and I just had to let it out.

  5. 25. A Waiting Father

    • By Ryan Lazrine
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2011

    This is a poem that tears me up every time I read it back to myself. I have two beautiful little girls, Alexa and Grace. They live with their Mom about four hours away from me. I hardly see them and it weighs heavy on my heart at times. This poem is written from a fathers hurting heart.

    Poem Of Love From Divorced Dad To His Children

    I used to watch you run and play,
    those were our best times together.

    I always tucked you in at night,
    and comforted you during stormy weather.

    I used to hold your hand so tight,
    before we crossed the street.

    And cheered you on with so much pride,
    when you said Daddy look at me!

    Now Daddy's heart hurts so bad,
    not having you around.

    Your Daddy misses everything about you,
    especially trips to the playground.

    But Daddy knows that someday,
    we will be together once more.

    Because there's nothing stronger than a father's love,
    missing his baby girl.

  6. 26. Daddy

    • By Mindy P

    A letter of love from daughter to father thanking him for being so good and reminding him that his job isn't over. She still needs him!

    Dad And Hero Poem

    Daddy,
    You were one of the first I laid eyes on when I came into this world.
    I didn't know you at first, but you were my daddy and later to become my hero.
    You were one of the first I loved.
    I chose you over my pink stuffed bear.
    I loved how you'd pick my up and hug me; I'd feel so secure.
    You'd lift me with one arm way above your head and play helicopter.
    As I started to grow, you taught me to stand and walk.
    You'd guide me so carefully so I wouldn't fall.
    Once I began to walk on my own, you stood close by just in case I fell down.
    If I did, you'd pick me up,
    Wipe the tears off my face and kiss my pain away.
    Once I got older, I didn't need your help walking, but I needed your love and time.
    We'd play basketball; if I couldn't reach the basket, you'd lift me up so I could,
    Making me feel like I was number one.
    You taught me how to shoot a gun and to not be afraid.
    You always helped me find a car in my price range that I liked.
    You showed me how to change the oil in my car.
    I'm the only one of my friends that knows how, which make me feel smart.
    You'd do almost anything to see me happy.
    You always encourage me to try my best and support me one hundred and ten percent.
    I've come to realize that I'm a lot like you.
    You help me realize common sense isn't that common.
    You also taught me to be witty.
    I follow in your steps of being a smart aleck.
    You taught me how to deal with people and how to get what I want,
    And whenever someone says,
    "You're just like your dad," I can't help but smile and be proud.
    You're not only my dad, but you're also my hero.
    Dad, even though I'm growing up, I still need your loving bear hugs
    And encouraging words of wisdom.
    Don't forget I will always be your little baby girl,
    And you will always be my loving father and hero.
    I love you dad!

    Love always Mindy

    A dad being loving as only a daddy can be...

    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.

    Generally, mother's love is appreciated by one and all. In view of the forthcoming Father's Day I have jotted down my feelings for my father.

    Your and mommy's love together had resulted into me
    All your traits are reflecting in my body if you carefully see
    Had you not supported throughout life would be nightmare
    No one in this world will give you a father like care
    You always wanted me to get better success and health
    For that you were ever ready to dole out your full wealth
    My pain was your pain and laughter was your laughter
    I promise when you will need me most I'll also look after.

  9. 29. On This Father

    I have never been more than a very casual "writer". Silly poems for family, rhymes to go on birthday invites....just "stuff". However, when I finished this one, I had a different surge of pride.

    From Husband To Daddy

    Being a father to a son,
    brings a man's heart so much joy.
    You can't imagine your world,
    without this wonderful little boy.

    Our son has grown so much,
    there's no trace of "baby" in his smile.
    But the work has just begun, Dad,
    time to readjust the dial.

    Wrestling in the living room
    makes him feel big and strong.
    Giving him the confidence to make decisions;
    hopefully right, sometimes wrong.

    From sporting events to his first car;
    to dating and a family of his own.
    You are the one he will turn to,
    The best man he's ever known.

    He will watch your every move,
    so guide him the best you can;
    Cause only a Daddy can teach his son
    how to become a man.

    I prayed no other woman
    would come along and steal your heart;
    but from the moment we heard, "it's a girl"
    I knew she would have you from the start.

    A little girl needs her Daddy
    to love her with gentlemanly charm.
    To hold her tightly when she is afraid;
    and keep her safe from harm.

    From pigtails and bubblegum,
    to lipstick and high heels;
    Help her mend a broken heart,
    teach her that true love is real.

    Dance with her in the living room,
    just to see her twirl.
    Know there is no love that equals that of
    Daddy's Little Girl.

    She will grow to be a woman,
    with irresistible charm and grace;
    But right now take each special moment
    and treasure her sweet face.

    I stood and made a promise
    to love you come what may;
    and watching you turn from husband to Daddy,
    makes that love grow more each day!

  10. 30. Dancing On Daddy's Toes

    • By Chellsie
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2008

    I lost my dad when I was thirteen years old, and one of my greatest memories is dancing on my daddy's toes. I love you dad and always will. And I cant wait until my child is born so they can dance with me, the same way we used to.

    When I was just a little girl,
    so very long ago
    I remember taking daddy's hands and stepping on his toes,
    he would dance around the room with me,
    taking his big steps,
    with every stride that he made,
    it felt like we were the only ones in this world left,
    dancing and turning in so many ways,
    all I could think about was me and my daddy's days.
    Now that you're gone, and your grandchild is on the way,
    I want my child to dance on my toes the way that I once did,
    taking there little hands in mine,
    going back to the place in time that I once loved,
    and nobody knows how much it meant to me dancing on daddy's toes.

  11. 31. Daughter To Father

    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    A daughter shares some of life's lessons that she has learned from her father.


    What I have learned about myself through my Father:

    I have the right to speak, but not down to my mother
    I have to learn respect by earning the same
    Anything that goes wrong, I have only myself to blame
    You must say your pleases when you ask for a favor
    Thank the Lord for your blessings and love thy neighbor
    You have to take life one day at a time
    Disappointment is not failure, so as long as you try
    A respectable man is not that of money
    It's the one's who can cry and can tell you he's sorry
    People will try anything to push you down
    You take it with stride and hold your own
    I have learned about myself through my Father
    To Him I say, Thank You. I Love You.-Your Daughter.

    Poem About Single Father And Daughter

    You make me happy,
    you make me sad,
    sometimes you even make me mad.

    You showed me how to smile,
    you showed me how to care,
    you even showed me how to share.

    You make me strong,
    you make me weak,
    sometimes you even make me weep.

    You are my daughter,
    you are my friend,
    and for you I will fight till the end.

  13. 33. Dad With Unconditional Love

    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    A father with unconditional love

    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.
    You take turns visiting us all winter, spring, summer, and fall.
    Even on days you could barely walk, there was nothing that would keep you from your kids when we needed to talk.
    It's been a comfort to know that you're here, whether it's to lend a hand or to bend an ear.
    You let us know you're as proud as can be, you are proud of the whole family.
    You're not just a father but also a friend, who we know we can count on until the end.
    I am sure God is watching from up above, and can see the father with the unconditional LOVE.

    Daddy, can you hear me, up there in heaven
    way up high?...

    and can you really fly?...

    you can always talk to me...
    Yes I have wings and fly,
    when I tuck you in tonight, you'll see...
    Daddy, why can't you stay with me?,
    to push my swing, or just play ball...
    Why can't you just come home?,
    so you can watch me grow up real tall...
    Son, I am always with you,
    your special angel, always at your side...
    I'm sorry I can't be there how you want me,
    but as you grow to a man, I'll be there the whole ride!...
    It's time to close your eyes, go to sleep,
    I'll stay with you,..alright...

  15. 35. Fishing With Dad

    • By Douglas J. Williams
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    A father and son fishing trip, more than just fishing, it's a bonding experience.

    I remember my dad waking me up at 4 o'clock.
    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.
    Driving to the lake and still dark,
    Watching dad drive and listening to my dogs bark.
    Thinking this time I'll make my mark,
    And just hoping to catch the big one.
    On the boat driving around,
    Knowing I won't be leaving with a frown.
    Cause I'm with dad and he knows best,
    Because he's wearing his famous fishing vest.
    Tying the hooks on my line.
    Too bad this pole isn't mine.
    Dad said he'll buy me one when I'm older
    And just a little more bolder.
    I love my daddy so much
    And I know he loves me too.
    His love for me is stronger than glue,
    And that is why I wrote this for you.
    Dad if you are listening I love you so.
    You are the reason why I glow.

  17. 37. My Hero, My Dad

    A son writes about his father. Dad worked hard all his life. He was devoted to his family and friends. A man so sure and steady that you thought he'd be around forever.

    My hero never fought in a war
    He never drove a big fancy car
    He did not go very far in school
    But he lived his life by the golden rule

    He never had much money to spend
    But he had the respect of all his friends
    He was born and died in the same county
    He never felt the need to search the world for bounty
    He got up each morning at the break of dawn
    Ate breakfast, packed his lunch and then he was gone

    It takes a lot of work with a family to feed
    A lot of devotion to meet their need
    But he did it for years till his family was grown
    Then he could retire and get to stay home

    A time for rest but it didn't last long
    He became sick and then he was gone
    I guess I thought he would always be there
    When I had a problem I needed to share
    But when I am low and feeling sad
    I still draw strength from my hero, my Dad.

    and we will be a family again
    I have our last picture together
    and stare at it till the day's end

    have dreams of mommy and me
    I have a smile on this little face
    that I wish you could see

    I know your arms are stretched out too,
    So here is a big hug for you.

    A father writes to his daughter of his love for her and how she's growing up too fast.

    Father To Daughter Growing Up

    It seems like only yesterday
    With a teardrop in my eye
    That you were born into this world
    With a whimper and a cry
    The days flew by and turned to weeks
    The weeks almost a year
    And every time you learn something new
    I get that same ol' tear
    I guess it's cause you're growing up
    But to me it's just too fast
    I guess it's just that I'm afraid
    Your innocence won't last
    But as the years go stumbling by
    One thing will remain true
    You'll always be my baby girl
    No matter what you do.

  20. 40. My Farmer Father

    • By Jasmine N. Swantz
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    A girl writes a tribute to her father who is a farmer. It is more than a profession for him; it is a way of life.

    My father is a farmer.
    His heart is in the soil
    It's there he finds his solace,
    Among the grimy toil.
    He plants the seed in springtime,
    The corn, the beans, the hay.
    He prays that God would bless it.
    A harvest, Lord, I pray.
    He tills and cultivates it,
    Provides the most tender care.
    Believes that come October,
    He'll reap a harvest fair.
    Blue skies are his cathedral.
    A tractor, his altar of prayer.
    God meets him in the cornfields,
    They have communion there.
    My father is a farmer-
    That's all he'll ever be.
    The values that the land taught him,
    He handed down to me.
    I love my farmer father-
    I'm thankful that he's mine...
    I pray that God would bless him,
    Today and for all time.
