Father Poems

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.

  1. 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

    My Father Is My Role Model

    You are the one who held me tight,
    Rocked my cradle all through night,
