  1. 21. I Love You Dad

    • By Christina Michelle Thompson
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2008

    This is a poem to my dad. He lives in Ohio and I live in Florida with my mom. I Love him very much. He is not only a dad to me he is a friend to me. I Love Him So Much. He is my one and my all. I only see him 2-months out of the whole year. I really hope you read this and maybe you can relate to it!

    I think God every day because you are always near.
    When I need you the most,
    We may be 800 miles apart, but you are always in my Heart.
    I found so much Love in you, more than I could ever imagine.
    When I was sad you believed in me, I had your Love from the start.
    You always showed me the way to go, You were always there for me when I needed you the most.
    I would not be able to go on to another day with out you.
    I know I don't call all the time, and I'm sorry.
    You brought so much Joy into my life, You helped me and never let me fall.
    I think every day if I will ever see you again.
    I know I should not think that, but I guess it is just a daughter thing.
    Dad I don't think you know how much I Love You.
    I remember all the fun we had.
    I cry every time I think about you.
    If I would lose you I don't know what I would do?
    You gave me life and you let me live it.
    Every breath that I take I remember that you gave me that rite to take that breath.
    When I was sick you were always right there.
    I will Always be your little girl, but I need to grow up and move on, but I will never move on from you.
    I could go on for days but all you really need to know is that I Love You with all my heart.
    And I will always be your little girl no matter how far or close to you I am.

    I LOVE YOU DAD!!!!

  2. 22. Wondrous Magical Times

    My dad was my hero. I always felt safe as a little girl. He taught me that a man should treat a lady with the utmost respect. We should never settle for anything less. There was a time in my life when I did settle for less. My dad saved me, because that little girl still lived in me, and she clung to that magic time with her daddy. His love and strength empowered me to find myself again. I hope this inspires women to remember the happy little girl in them and to never settle for anything less.

    Always Daddy's Little Girl

    The child held to her
    daddy's hand.
    She stood upon his feet,
    and as they danced to the music,
    their closeness was complete.

    Excitedly, the little girl
    would wait for her daddy to speak,
    and as she danced in his footsteps,
    he knew one day another's love
    she would seek.

    Time whirled her far
    from her daddy's footsteps,
    into lost dreams of a magic time,
    void of knights and steeds
    and damsels saved
    and music filled with rhyme.

    Old daddy wiped away his daughter's
    tears of sadness and then the
    tears of strife,
    and then held to his child's hand,
    quietly rectifying her life.

    The child held to her
    daddy's hand
    and danced to music filled with rhyme,
    and felt a touch of happiness
    and wondrous magical times.

    Thank you for reading my poem.

    Poem About The Importance Of A Father

    There's a man in every boy's life that he calls Father,
    One who never gives up,
    When most wouldn't even bother.
    No matter how bad it is,
    He's always there.
    His judgment impartial, even though at the time
    You don't think it's fair.
    He taught you his values and imparted his views,
    Equipped you with the tools of life that you need to use.
    Yes, there's one man I know unlike any other,
    And that's the man I call my Father.

  4. 24. Though I'm Gone I Feel Your Love

    • By Steven M. Hollifield
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    Can a father contact his loved ones from beyond the grave?

    To my dear family,
    I'm sending this from above,
    That even though I'm gone from earth,
    I can still feel your love,
    And all the times we spent together,
    Growing a love that would last forever,
    Are times that will never leave,
    Because you remember me.
    I'm sorry about the timing,
    For I didn't want to leave,
    But God called me home,
    So I fell into eternal sleep.
    There was so much left to do here,
    Cause God took me quite young,
    I had a loving family,
    And so much to teach my son.
    I'm sure you all can make it,
    You have God by your side,
    And just to let you know,
    I'm enjoying this long heavenly harley ride.
    If any of you ever need me,
    Just close your eyes and I'll be there,
    I'll help you through your life,
    If you remember how much I cared.
    I want you all to know today,
    That I love you very much,
    And even though I'm gone from earth,
    I can still feel your love.

    • By Taraw-81
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2019

    My acrostic poem is about the impression that my father-in-law made on me. He was, hands down, one of my heroes in life. He will be greatly missed, and no one will ever take his place.

    Lessons From A Father Acrostic Poem

    Facing some of the toughest times in life
    Always seem a little easier with someone by your side
    Two has always been better than one.
    He taught me that and taught me how to have fun.
    Everyone should be leaning on the other, not pointing fingers and blaming one another.
    Rest easy, fly high, until we meet again, I've never say goodbye, I'll just say "until then."

  6. 26. To Be Daddy's Girl Again Someday

    Father and daughter are separated but in her heart she harbors dreams of a reunion someday.

    Feeling lost without him
    Feeling empty too
    I used to be my daddy's girl
    This I know was true.
    Now that we have split apart
    Gone our separate ways
    I pray to God each night
    To bring us back together someday.
    Yet I fear this is impossible
    Not right now anyway.
    I still hold out hope
    To be my daddy's girl again someday.
    Yet still all I can say is,
    I'm feeling lost without him
    Feeling empty too
    Dear God I'm still praying
    Please oh please to help me get through.

    The poem is an ode to my father who is my role model and my source of strength.

    My Father Is My Role Model

    You are the one who held me tight,
    Rocked my cradle all through night,
    Cuddled me dearly when I was in fright.
    Oh Pa, you will always be my shining knight.

    When I grew old,
    You took me in your fold,
    Made me fearless and bold.
    Oh Pa, you will always be my hero beloved.

    You taught me to think right,
    Never to give up without a fight.
    Helped me achieve the dizzying height,
    Steered my life like a leading light.
    Oh Pa, you will always be my shining knight.

    Dad, I miss you so much. Please come back home.

    Absent Father

    It seems like only yesterday
    You wiped away my tears
    As I called your name
    To fight away my fears.

    When you didn't respond,
    I knew you weren't coming back.
    I realized then you left me
    And that you were to slack.

    Are you alive?
    Or are you dead?
    Do you love me? And do you care?
    Sometimes I wonder what's going through your head.

    Dad,
    Always keep to your heart
    That I miss you,
    And my love for you will never part.

  10. 30. Hey Daddy, Please Come Back

    • By Jesse-Ryan G. Debenport
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    A son pleading for his father not to leave tells him how special he is.

    Hey Daddy,

    There are a couple of things I think you missed
    So write this down, make a little list.
    Here are a couple of things that I want you to remember
    That sometimes you seem to forget.
    You're not the only one.
    There are also a couple of things that I need to fix.

    Hey Daddy,

    Don't forget to tell me you love me.
    Don't be too embarrassed to grab me and hug me.
    If it makes you feel better, go ahead and slug me.

    Hey Daddy,

    No matter how much you bug me,
    Just know that I enjoy your company,
    Laughing when you make fun of me.

    Hey Daddy,

    I'll try and set aside the girls
    At least one day a week
    So you won't get so mad at me
    So we can hop in the truck and go four-wheeling.

    Hey Daddy,

    Remind me to give you a hug goodnight.
    I never want you to feel
    Like I'm leaving you out to dry.
    Don't be afraid to grab my hand
    Just because it doesn't feel right.
    I never wanna regret
    Not doing it later on in life.

    Hey Daddy,

    Please hang on to me.
    I'm growing up way too fast.
    Too much of the future,
    Not enough of the present day or past.


    Hey Daddy,

    Please don't let me go.
    I want these years to last.
    I just wish I could let you know
    How much I don't want you to leave,
    How much I appreciate your company.

    Hey Daddy,

    I'm not gonna tell you to walk a little slower.
    I'll just catch up.
    I'm not gonna tell you that you're leading my life.
    I'm just gonna tell you to show your love.

    Hey Daddy,

    I didn't want you to see the tears in my eyes
    When I was standing there waving goodbye.
    I didn't want you to get on that plane.
    I didn't want you to take that flight.

    Hey Daddy,

    Ford looked up to me as you pulled away.
    He said on the verge of tears,
    "Jesse, I don't want Daddy to go to work today."
    In the back of my mind
    I recalled all of the fun over the years.

    Hey Daddy,

    I promise I tried to hold back the tears,
    But I couldn't; I cried, it hurt so bad.
    I could've died, it made me so mad
    To know that I couldn't stop you from leaving.
    Now the whole family is grieving,
    But no one is as hurt as I am.
    I lost my best friend when you left.
    I lost my Buddy, my Brother, my Friend.

    Hey Daddy,

    I can't write anymore,
    The tears are falling and the ink is fading.
    I haven't really been myself lately.

    Hey Daddy,

    I just couldn't hold back.
    Cut me some slack.

    Hey Daddy,

    Please come back.

    Hey Daddy,
    Friend
    Brother
    Dad
    Please Come Back

    Love Always,
    Your Son,
    Jesse Debenport

  11. 31. A Father So Tall

    • By Duel T. Lane
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    This poem is in tribute to a loving father.

    A father is that special someone,
    Who seems so very tall;
    As he hold your hand in his,
    When you are oh so small;

    He rides you on his shoulders,
    And watches when you play;
    And laughs when you see a bug,
    Then scream and run away;

    He has a twinkle in his eye,
    When you ask for your first date;
    Then gives his approving nod,
    And says, Just don't be late.

    And now after all these years,
    When I think about it all;
    I see it was his caring love,
    That made him seem so tall.

    Tribute To A Step-Dad Poem


    Having a father
    Is something not really known to me
    But you come the closest
    To what I have in my dreams
    You make my mother happy
    And you have forgiveness for me
    You are a grandfather to my children
    And you are very inspiring
    There is so much that you have taught me
    And so much more for me to learn
    Thank you for all that you have done
    And thank you for being part of my family

  13. 33. Ode To The Step-Dad

    • By Susan E. Winover
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    Is it more special to be a birth father or to be a step-father?

    Poem For A Step Dad

    Although you're not my birth Dad,
    You've loved me since I was small,

    The road has not always been easy,
    I'm sure at times you've wondered,
    how you even got here at all,

    There may have been times when I
    was distant,
    Resenting you because you weren't
    my 'real' Dad,

    And when the going got real rough at times,
    I'm sure you felt you'd been had,

    But time is the great healer,
    She's patient and loving and kind,

    One day I woke up from my slumber,
    And with you, I just changed my mind,

    I decided you weren't such a bad guy,
    You really seemed like you cared,

    You seemed to make Mommy so happy,
    Perhaps I could open my heart just a wee
    little bit, a wee little bit if I dared,

    You stood there with arms wide open,
    When I decided to take 'the chance',

    It seemed so natural and made such sense,
    Like a lovely, well-choreographed dance,

    You never held it against me,
    Those early days when I wasn't so sure,

    And when you hold me so close and so dear,
    I now know our love is real and pure.

    Written for Audrey Rose, by Mommy

  14. 34. Real Dad

    This poem is a reminder to an adoptive father that it is not who actually fathered the baby but who is raising the child that counts.

    Though you're not his father as far as blood lines go,
    You are the only daddy this child will ever know.
    You've held his hand and guided his path,
    Creating a bond that forever will last.
    There is no escape from his watchful eye,
    Whatever you do you know he wants to try.
    He wouldn't do this with just anyone,
    This is a special game shared between a father and a son.
    It doesn't make a difference whose blood courses through his veins,
    You know in his heart he loves you just the same.
    He is your little buddy following you around,
    A love stronger than his could never be found.
    You've taken the place of the sun, moon, and stars in the skies,
    You are his father in his precious little eyes.
    By the times you've shared and the experiences you've had,
    It's easy to see you are his REAL DAD.

  15. 35. His Family

    I remember him working at his regular job and still coming home and working on the farm until it was dark. He always made sure we had everything we needed.

    Strong Dad Poem

    His hands are callused and worn.
    He works hard from sun up to sun down.
    And at the end of his toilsome day,
    A smile on his face is found.
    All the sweat that beads on his brow,
    Each drop that runs down his face.
    He has made it through another day,
    By God's amazing grace.
    He comes home to his family,
    At the end of his wearied day.
    And as they gather around the table,
    He bows his head and prays.
    "Thank you Lord for this day,
    And all the blessing set before me.
    Thank you for my wife and my children,
    And for another day as a family.
    For the strength to make each day,
    To work, to sweat and to bleed,
    And for Your amazing grace,
    Helping me provide for my family."
    He lifts his head with an amen,
    Looks at his family gathered around.
    And as they settle in for the night,
    A smile on his face is found.

  16. 36. On Your Shoulders

    • By Magnus I. Rasmussen
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2018

    My father and I have always been close; when I was young, he would take me on drives to record stores and football games, anywhere and everywhere we'd go together. Recently he was diagnosed with Alzheimer's and vascular dementia, and slowly, day by day, he's losing what makes him my father. I wrote this poem as an ode to the memory of the man he once was, before it all. I read it to him from time to time, and he smiles and asks me who wrote it. I always say, "A girl who loves her father dearly."

    An Ode To A Father With Alzheimer's

    I remember the times
    You'd flip me onto your shoulder
    Freefalling skyward
    Taller, older

    I felt like a giant
    At that great height
    And felt no fear
    Just sheer delight

    Safe in your hands
    So sure and strong
    Now they're gone
    It feels all wrong

    No more do I fly
    And reach the stars
    No more do I soar
    That path of ours

    Up and beyond
    Your own great length
    Above your heart
    Upon your strength

    Where always you kept
    Me and us all
    Where you could watch us
    That we'd never fall

    And always you'd work
    Day after day
    To give us a life
    We'd love each day

    And though you'd grump
    And gripe and groan
    You'd flash a smile
    At coming home

    Where we would sit
    And eat home food
    Sing to songs
    That sang of blues

    Like stories you'd tell
    Of your young days
    And how the world
    Has changed its ways

    You'd reminisce
    Of your own dad
    The happy times
    That you two had

    I'd smile and think
    Of you and I
    And him and you
    And ache to cry

    For as I knew
    You'd lost your own
    I knew that you'd
    Leave me alone

    I could only hope
    And wish and pray
    That each day
    Would not be that day

    So each night that
    We'd sit and talk
    I'd try to capture
    Every thought

    And every smile
    Every laugh
    In my mind
    Like photographs

    Now I replay
    Your greatest hits
    From our hours together
    Our best bits

    These are the memories
    I now love
    In my heart as your picture
    In my glove

    And swear that until
    The day I go too
    I'll never forget
    And I'll always love you.

  17. 37. I Want You To Know, My Father

    • By Kacie Christie
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems April 2009

    My Father was born and raised in Glasgo Scotland, and was a strong and loving man. He had a love of life that inspired those around him, especially his children. He passed away on March 28, 2009 after a battle with Congestive Heart Failure, but he lived a full, active, life right up to the end and had a wonderful hunger for adventure, new experiences, he loved animals, knowledge, volunteered, camped, and had many, many friends who loved him very much. I love and miss him dearly.

    As a young Child you held my hand and wiped away my tears.
    You saw me through some difficult years and watched me grow with the years.
    You spoke of love and life and dreams and helped to ease my fears.
    I want you to know, my Father, it's admiration and love in my tears.

    Your passion for knowledge, connection to people, love of animals, adventure, and food.
    Your desire to learn, to teach and help others, wherever and whenever you could.
    You helped to inspire and form my life and I will miss you as I would.
    But I want you to know, my Father, by example you taught me good.

    I saw in your heart and body the fight and through that experience you gave me insight.
    It was an honor holding your hand through the night, to dream your dreams and try to make it right.
    I knew in my soul what we must do bring you home for your final flight.
    But I want you to know, my Father, you are still my guiding light.

    With Highland mist, heather, dewdrops kissed, gentle wind blowing through the valley.
    I can see you now coming round the bend, eyes at peace, as your soul shall be.
    My message to you, as I help you go, is I love you with all of me.
    I want you to know my Father, in this place your soaring free.

    Even though not spoken enough, I appreciate all you did do.
    Gratitude is all I feel, for having a Father like you.
    I hold in my heart your image so clear; it was a gift to see you through.
    I want you to know my Father, in my heart you'll be - so true.

    Nothing but love and light and peace - my wish for you this day.
    I want you to know, my Father, this is what I pray.

    I wonder what it's like
    to not put up a fight
    with someone you're supposed to love so dearly
    and get some sleep at night.

    I look through these photos
    of me and you together,
    pictures of you and me smiling
    in nice or raining weather.

    I wish we could go back to that,
    smiling together every day,
    but now it's the occasional smile;
    it's just not the same today.

    Now I'm all grown up.
    I'm smart and strong-willed.
    You're still much smarter than me,
    and your strength just keeps on building.

    I'm tired of these fights
    and you making me mad.
    When I try to get along,
    the results just end up sad.

    So I'll keep trying
    for the moon and stars above.
    I may not act like it, Daddy,
    but you I will always love.

  19. 39. I Miss You Dad!

    About a special relationship between a father and a daughter.

    When I was a little girl,
    I can still remember our happy moments we shared together.
    People said that because I'm the only girl in the family, aside from my mom
    That I'm a spoiled brat, but I guess I'm not.

    You're my mentor, you taught me a lot of things in life, moral values,
    Respect for elders, things that is useful to our everyday life.
    As a Dad, you showed me of the how, the why, and the where,
    No matter what has come about; you were always there.

    That was spring of 2002 when I heard the news.
    The doctor said you're in pain, and there's nothing they could do.
    The result of your biopsy was you have cancer of the liver,
    After I heard that, my world starts to shiver.

    You talked to me and said you are dying,
    My heart breaks when I heard you crying.
    3 weeks later, you've left me.
    That was so painful and the hardest thing to accept, for a grieving daughter that I am.

    Years may come and go, but your memory will never be erased.
    I once knew a man, who gave love at his best,
    And no one can ever take your place. I miss you so much DAD!

  20. 40. The Power Of Love

    • By Erika N. Workman

    A son yearns for his father to finally be at peace. He wants his father to just relax and be happy.

    A heart so gentle
    A heart so pure
    A heart so broken
    There seems to be no cure
    He does all he can
    For everyone else
    It's his turn to be happy
    A man so willing
    A man so kind
    A man so loving
    With too much on his mind
    He does all he can
    For everyone else
    It's his turn to be happy
    So I dedicate to him
    This poem and my life
    In hopes he will soon
    Be rid of all strife
    He does all he can
    For everyone else
    Dad, it's your turn to be happy
    I don't want you
    To work two jobs
    I don't want
    To see you cry
    I don't want you
    To keep losing sleep
    I'm scared you're going to die
    Please stop worrying
    There is no need to fear
    I don't want all the finest things
    I just want you here
    I know this doesn't amount
    To all you've done for me
    But I hope after reading this
    You will be able to see
    How much your happiness
    Means to me
    I love you dad...
    So be happy!
