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.

1. FatherRhyming Father's Day Poem
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.Latest Shared Story
Dear Dad, I want you to know I love you so much. What an amazing poem. I love everything you do for all of us. Love, Bella
Unbreakable Bond Between Father And Daughter
The bond between father and daughter happens instantly, starting right at birth.
When a father first lays eyes on his little girl, he loves her more than anything on this earth.
When a daughter grows older, her father is the first man she will love
And the last one her father will have trouble letting go of.
In her eyes he is the closest thing to God; in her eyes he is a king.
To her father, she means the world; she means everything.
When a daughter grows up to be an adult and mature,
Her father will always be there any time she still needs dad to help her,
To give her advice or just for anything she will ever need.
The bond between father and daughter is the most important bond indeed.
It cannot be broken when she finds a man and become his wife,
It cannot be broken even in the ending of either one's life.
A daughter will always have the memories of her father, her best friend.
This bond has a beginning, but there is never an end.
The bond between a father and daughter is so profound.
The love shared is well-renowned.
From the beginning of his daughters life, he is a changed man.
At that moment, his life really just began.
From the moment their eyes meet,
Two souls instantly become complete.

3. From DadA Dad's Love For His Children
I never thought I could love someone
The way that I love you.
I'm completely fascinated
With everything you do.
I don't regret a moment with you,
Whether good or bad.
You have made my life complete,
The best life a guy could have.
You might not ever notice
Everything I do,
But everything I'm doing
Is for no one else but you.
My goal in life is simple.
It's to be your father first.
To protect, defend, and love you
When you are at your worst.
I know when you grow older
You won't want me anymore.
If you ever need me, though,
I'll be waiting at the door.
Promise you will come to me
With any problem that you have.

4. ClutchesPoem 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.
"Why does it have to be my daddy?" he thinks to himself.
Then he thinks back to the pictures on the shelf
Of his dad dressed in a suit with a white cap,
But he doesn't know why daddy's going to Iraq.
He sees his daddy wave at him from the bus's window.
His heart is aching with every sinew.
"Daddy, come back!" he wants to yell,
Because even on the home-front, war is hell.
He stands at the front of class talking loud
About how his daddy is making the nation proud.
He still plays on the playground with all the other kids.
Some stop and ask where his daddy is.
He says he misses him and wants him back
From the clutches of Iraq.
He stands by the mess hall with a SATCOM phone,
Making a call to his family back at home.
His wife picks up and tells him her love and asks how he's been,
And then he hears a little voice chime in.
"Daddy, when are you coming home?"
There was a pause on the phone.
A mortar came in and landed near the Mess.
He knew he had to cover up the phone his best.
"Daddy, what was that sound?"
He couldn't tell him there were bombs landing around.
He said, "I love you," and played it off well,
Because when you're in it, war is he'll.
He stands with his buddies talking loud
About his little son and how he makes him proud.
He still patrols around the war zone with all the other men.
Some stop and ask how the family's been.
He says he misses them and wants to get back
From the clutches of Iraq.
There's a little boy standing in a crowd with a flag in his hand.
His daddy's coming back from a foreign land.
The sound of horns blaze through the air
As the crowd erupts into fanfare.
He saw a line of soldiers get out.
He saw him and ran with a loud shout
And ran into his arms.
He was safe from all harms.
He got his daddy back
From the clutches of Iraq.Latest Shared Story

5. DaddyFather's Day Poem For Stepdad
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.

7. Last ChancePoem To Dad From Angry Daughter
My heart aches, Dad,
For the things you won't do.
My soul breaks, Dad,
For all that we've been through.
I fear it's too late, Dad,
To mend my broken heart.
I'm so full of hate, Dad,
I don't know where to start.
You took away my hope, Dad,
That I would ever be loved,
And now I'm left to cope, Dad,
As I watch you love your son.
I want to scream and yell, Dad,
But I fear my voice will crack.
I want so much to tell you, Dad,
That I can't always take you back.
Please listen to my words, Dad,
For they are all that I can say.
I want you to treat me like I'm yours, Dad,
And not just throw me away.

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.

That's all he'll ever be.

9. KeepsakePoem About Hunting With Dad
One day my dad was hunting, from his favorite hunting stand;
'Twas a giant Oak with perfect limbs, under which two deer trails ran.
Now this favorite spot of Daddy's was as unique as it could be,
'cause a lightning bolt had burned a giant hole down through that tree.
As he double checked his deer tags, as he did quite frequently,
he accidently dropped his wallet down the hole in that old tree.
Well, his family hunted from that tree ever since they'd been around,
And there was no way on God's green earth he'd ever cut it down.
That Oak tree was my "learning stool" as dad was teaching me,
and most of what I learned 'bout deer was right there in that tree.
And I finally took my own first buck, right there from that old stand;
with Daddy sitting next to me to calm my nervous hands.
"I've taught you everything I know," Dad proudly said to me;
"Someday we'll bring my grandson here, and teach him in this tree".
Well, I laughed and poked him on the arm; hell, I was just a kid,
But Daddy made me feel real good, somehow he always did.
Well, we shared some twenty seasons, and we watched some good bucks grow,
But unlike that mighty old Oak tree, on my dad those seasons showed.
Soon he'd grown too old to really hunt, still he'd sit with me in that stand,
and it was my turn to hold and steady the shaking in Daddy's hands.
Then he died at the end of that season, ten years too soon to see
The grandson that he'd dreamed about get to hunt from that old tree.
And now it's opening morning, on my son's first whitetail hunt;
I'm sitting beside him in "Grandpa's Tree" 'cause we both knew that's what he would want.
Now I'd seen this scene from both sides of that limb, and it happened exactly the same;
we heard one coming, I steadied his hands, and here that old buck came.
He handled it just perfect; his Grandpa would've been proud,
I shook his hand and wiped a tear and looked up at the clouds.
Then we hung his deer right from our stand, and I took a Polaroid shot;
And I wanted so badly for Daddy to see the buck that his grandson got.
Then as I watched that picture develop in my hands,
I felt a breeze and heard a gentle rustling near that stand.
Then a little stronger gust of wind whipped the picture from my hand
and carried it briskly into that tree, above the old deer stand.
Well, my son said he'd go get it, but I told him "never mind."
We'd take a few more later, but let's leave that one behind.
'Cause he could've looked forever, but I knew where it would be,
Tucked safely in Dad's wallet, down the hole in that old tree.Latest Shared Story

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.Latest Shared Story
My dad passed away 2 months ago and I can not forget and my mom and I are sad. I know that he is not in any more pain in heaven.
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!
On Finding Out You're To Be A Dad
You come to me with sadness in your eyes,
And tell me we have to talk,
Immediately I think the worst,
'Is it me? Does she want to walk?'
You try to begin, but don't know how,
And my nerves are standing on end.
You say that you're pregnant, two times confirmed,
And we may have a new little friend.
I'm speechless and breathless,
I can't form words to say,
This isn't what I expected,
Driving home today.
I know this is sudden,
And we haven't prepared,
But we've been through so much already,
Look at all we've shared.
Now there's another life,
Growing inside of you,
And I wonder what kind of Dad I'll be,
Will our Child's dreams come true?
Will I be the kind of father,
Who dotes upon his child?
Who fixes skinned knees,
With a smile, patient and mild?
Will I learn to chase the monsters,
From underneath their bed?
Will I be able to ease the nightmares,
From our child's tiny head?
Will you shine as a mother?
Will contentment light your face?
Will it bring out even more beauty,
Which the passage of time could never erase?
Will you be the kind of mother,
Who worries each time our child is ill?
Each stuffy nose an emergency,
Or will you have more resolve than I will?
What will it look like?
Will it have your eyes?
Will it love us right away?
Will it look on us with surprise?
Will we learn to adjust to 2am cries?
Can we deal with late night feedings?
Will I cry in front of the Obstetrician,
The First time I hear our child's heart beating?
Will it be a son or daughter?
Will it grow up to be like us?
Will we learn to deal with the crankiness,
When our baby starts to fuss?
These questions seem so pertinent,
More so now than they ever had,
I hope our child will love their mother,
As much as she's loved by their Dad.
I'm scared and excited,
Hesitant and yet bold,
We're going to be a family,
And our baby we'll soon hold.
Will it be a boy or a girl?
I guess only time will tell
13. In Her EyesSpecial Love Between Father And Daughter
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.
An emotion so immense that nothing in this world can erase.
The permanent impression of love is tattooed upon her face.
A relation so peculiar that only the two can understand,
Yet so immaculate it's obvious that, by God, it was planned.
I believe it all began when she would sleep upon your chest.
Now you're her number one, her favorite, you're the best!
You move and she watches so closely it's as if she's in a trance.
The fact that she can repeat you, exactly, isn't just by chance.
From wrestling, racing, jump roping to being made up like a doll.
Both playmate and best friend, you've done some of it all.
A secret place, a look, special time just for her and you.
When a choice is to be made, it's all about what Daddy wants to do.
And you're there to cater to her every need and every wish.
There's an invisible pedestal for Daddy's little princess.
She's content just to be. She's filled with absolute bliss
Just to sit up under you, giving an occasional hug and kiss.
Sweet dreams are non-existent without Daddy's goodnight kiss.
Your gentle stroke, words just for her, your check on hers is what she'd miss.
It's simply because of how you love her, I surmise.
The depth of your love always shows in her eyes.
With you, her laughter is harder and her smile is even brighter.
You have a friendship, a bond, a soul tie that couldn't be any tighter.
It's more than a special bond; it's an exclusive connection.
No room for a third party or attempted interjection.
This love is reserved just for Dad and no other.
It's not the same for siblings, not even for Mother.
It's the kind of love that I could never despise.
For the depth of your love always shows in her eyes.
To her, you'd give anything, but it's not about the gift.
It's that marvelous smile brought on by the spirit you lift.
It's not about what you can give her or about what you can do.
It's about the unconditional love reciprocated between you two.
It's the tears in her eyes when you two disagree.
Nothing's quite right until 'I love you and I'm sorry.'
It's that spunk in her step, the rainbow in her eye-
You'll know she's a Daddy's girl when she passes by.
She's got the kind of love that never fades or dies.
The depth of your love always shows in her eyes.
Upon angel wings you soar; your sparkling golden halo glows
Whenever she's with you, it's Heaven in her eyes that shows.
Her eyes hold a song so beautiful you'd think it was Heaven's melody.
It's the music of love's symphony composed by each precious memory.
The love known is the love you've shown from sunset to sunrise.
The depth of your love will forever show in your daughter's eyes.Latest Shared Story

14. A Waiting FatherPoem 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.Latest Shared Story

15. My BabygirlFather 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.Latest Shared Story
To my baby girl, Larissa Coleman. No matter where you are, remember to hold your heart 'cause mom is with you.
In your eyes, I see grace,
Full of love and encased
With a hope that burns bright in the dark.
Through your love, I know God.
You don't know, but I'm in awe
Of the steps that I try to keep pace.
You may feel me slipping away,
Hanging on by a thread,
But that's okay,
Because you know that I'll always be that little girl
With the stars in her eyes and a bow in her curls.
And even as I grow up,
Know that you'll always be stuck
In a place in my heart that's just yours.
Daddy, you're the strongest I know.
Not just with your hands but also your soul.
I don't think you've noticed, never had to look back,
But I've seen past the things that I thought I had lacked.
I've come to my crossroad; I've chosen my trail.
It's going to be hard. I may even fail,
But your courage and strength will keep me on track.
And If I've learned anything, it would be that
Hardships and hurt will come when they may,
And if you let them drag you down
They won't go away.
Daddy, you taught me how to be strong.
My journey is a hard one; it's going to be long.
I have all I need to face my fears,
And the lessons have been learned; it's taken me years.
Now I am confident in the strides that I take.
My faith has grown strong, and it will never break.
From this moment on, I'm chasing the world,
Always proud to be my daddy's little girl.Latest Shared Story

17. My Perfect DadPoem 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.Latest Shared Story

18. My Hero, My Dad
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.Latest Shared Story

Dad's Love For His Daughter Even Though They May Disagree
Sometimes life throws us curve balls,
And nothing he does is fair.
We know we have a lot of differences,
But with a dad's love, who cares?
Sometimes it seems like he doesn't understand
And it is difficult to relate.
But with a big bear hug and a look in his eyes,
Some of my pain can go away.
We don't always have similar viewpoints.
When we disagree, we might shout,
Yet when the day is over,
Our love can work it out.
It's hard to reach common ground
When the road is really rough.
I may feel like he's always against me
But in truth, he couldn't love me enough.
Yes, life (and parents) throws us curve balls,
But one thing is for sure.
My dad is more than just a dad.
He is a daughter's cure.Latest Shared Story
This poem made me tear up just from reading it. It's so relatable and definitely made me appreciate my father much more. I love 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!Latest Shared Story
