Poems about Dad

Our fathers carry half of our genetic makeup. Our relationship with our father plays a huge part of who we will become. In many segments of society, people grow up without ever knowing their fathers. This is unfortunate because fathers should play as important a role in raising their children as mothers. A father is the model of a man for his daughter and she will choose a man who is like him. A father is the model for his son as well. Fortunately, there is a trend for fathers to be more active in their children's lives.

  3. He's My Dad

    My Father Was A Hardworking Man

    Muddy boots and overalls, he stood about six two
    He was a country bumpkin; hard work was what he knew
    A carpenter, a roofer, a jack of many trades
    Countless hours of hard labor with not much time to play

    Rocked my cradle all through night,
