  1. 21. Daddy's Girl

    • By Heather McTiernan
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    A woman gives recognition and thanks to her dad for taking her to the place she is today. She knows it wasn't easy, and she is very grateful that her daddy didn't give up on her.

    Poem Thanking Dad

    Quiet as you are, I always knew
    You were watching me, loving me, all the years through

    Hard as it was at times, I am sure,
    You were there for me, even when you felt like showing me the door

    Through all of the years and the laughter and tears
    I was happy to know there was a place I had no fears

    That place was home with you and Mom,
    where everything was safe and I could be calm

    For years I was trouble, and for that I regret
    A trillion million sorrys haven't covered it yet

    I am all grown now and have finally found my way
    All that you've given me, I could never repay

    Hopefully seeing that I'm safe and sound
    And knowing the wonderful husband and life I found

    Will make you rest easy, as you hadn't in the past,
    and you'll be happy in knowing that this time it will last

    So on this day I celebrate you...
    My wonderful Father and the greatest Dad too!

  2. 22. In Her Eyes

    • By Michelle W. Emerson
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    A genuinely beautiful relationship between father and daughter is too rare not to print this one. Poem about a Daddy's Girl.

    Special 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.

  3. 23. A Different Kind Of Hero

    • By Kelsee Briscoe
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    What kinds of heroes are there?

    He is not the kind of hero who is fighting in the war.
    He is not one who sails offshore.

    I don't call him Sergeant, Captain, or Sir.
    His title is DAD; that is for sure!

    He is the fixer of my broken things
    And the household doctor when I get bee stings.

    He picks me up when I fall down
    And always turns my frown upside down.

    He keeps me safe when I sleep at night.
    He gives me seconds when I have a big appetite.

    That's my Dad. That's who he is.
    He deserves a medal for the things he did.

  4. 24. Fatherhood Is God's Idea

    Acknowledging the important role man was given and how valuable they are to their families and to the kingdom of God.

    Honoring Fatherhood

    Thanks be unto God the Father
    for His great work in creating man.
    God decided to reproduce Himself,
    So He formed man with His hand.

    God crowned man with His glory
    and gave him dominion over the earth.
    He made man a little lower than the angels
    and honored him with great worth.

    God endowed man with wisdom
    so great things he would be able to do.
    He made him in the likeness of Himself
    so man could become a father too.

    Creating man was God's best work.
    He gave him authority and great might
    to provide for the needs of his family
    and courage to face the darkest night.

    We honor God for His creation
    and for making man His masterpiece.
    He is to be an extension of Christ Jesus
    so God's kingdom work will not cease.

    So we salute fatherhood everywhere.
    It is the highest position in the land.
    It's no greater honor than being called dad
    and no greater foundation on which to stand.

    "You're not my father, but you will always be my dad."

    Father'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. 27. My Daddy

    This is a poem I wrote for my fiancé', for her to give to her Dad for father's day.

    Father's Day Poems From Daughter

    A daddy is a special man
    In which all things abound
    Showing care and passion
    And love to all around

    I shall treasure all the sleepless nights
    And sacrifices made
    All because you loved me
    Through the problems that I gave

    Doing little special things
    All for me
    Your eyes they tell the story
    When you speak of me

    Your hands that once were strong and firm
    Now softened with the age
    But you're still my daddy
    And never would I trade

    Smiles and hugs and kisses
    As I sat there on your knee
    From childhood to the woman
    Who before you
    Now you see

    I have locked away those precious times
    They are mine
    For me to see
    I keep them all within my heart
    Take them everywhere with me

    My love for you
    Is just as strong
    As the one when I was three
    And I know this kind of special bond
    Was meant for you and me

    I hope that you will see it now
    You're in my thoughts each day
    I'm so glad you are my daddy

    And happy Father's Day

    I am Shruti Singh,15 years old, and this is my 15th poem of 40 lines dedicated to my 40-year-old father, my King whom I am a princess of! This poem has feelings wrapped in a page of words. It will make you feel how much your father loves you, and it gives you a glimpse of the deepest, purest, and loveliest relation between a father and a daughter.

    A Daughter's Tribute To Her Father

    I have my own castle,
    full of love and laughter!
    The builder of my castle is a strong MAN
    Who loves me first and himself after.

    In these 15 years of life
    He has never denied my wish.
    Always makes sure
    My matching footwear with my dress never miss.

    He is the richest in the world!
    Richest in love and care.
    The one I will always trust
    Is only papa-- always true and fair.

    Bound by his love and trust,
    I am maturing.
    He makes every moment magic
    By his true love and caring!

    However I may look,
    Short or weak or pale,
    People might make fun of me,
    But he always loves me the same.

    Sometimes I do wonder,
    How can a man be so selfless?
    But then the answer comes in my heart-
    He is a father, with a heart most tender.

    His life is full of sacrifice and tension,
    A schedule of hard work and struggle.
    Still, he never lets us know
    Just to see our smiles and giggles!

    No matter if others
    Trust me or not,
    His blind support is enough
    To make me an energy bot.

    This Father's Day,
    Thought to gift him a bundle of words.
    To the world's best father,
    This is the tribute I pay!

  9. 29. What Is A Dad?

    I wrote this poem for a friend for Father's Day. He is not only a friend to me and my son but took on the role of his father as well. He has gone above and beyond for my son and deserves all the credit of being his "father" and for making my son a better man.

    Father's Day Poem For An Adopted Dad

    A Dad is patient, helpful, and strong
    He is there by your side when things go wrong
    He's someone who guides you to do the right thing
    And helps you solve problems that life sometimes brings

    A Dad is someone who is loving and kind
    And usually knows what's going on in your mind
    He is someone who listens and makes time to talk
    When things are bad he doesn't turn around and walk

    He is a strong shoulder when times are tough
    And still loves you dearly when he's had enough
    He helps you and guides you all that he can,
    Wanting nothing more than to make you a man

    A Dad's there when you're happy and even more when you're sad
    Giving unconditional love whether you're good or you're bad
    A Dad is someone that you can also call a friend
    Who is there no matter what and will be till the end

    They say that blood is thicker than water
    But I know this isn't true
    Because my son couldn't ask for a better Dad
    Than one he has found in you

    I think of all the years gone by and wonder
    How different things would've been
    If his real father put forth the love
    That you have shown to him

    Happy "Father's" Day, Tommy
    Thank you for showing my son what a real father is
    And for loving him as much as you do. You will always
    Have a special place in my heart and his

    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!

    Nor could I call you Dad.

    And has been from the start,

    You're holding me in your arms.
    I'm wrapped up so tight,

  18. 38. The Silent Honor In A Father's Goodness

    • By Joseph D. Jensen
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2006

    A son writes about his father's goodness on Father's Day. He recognizes that though his father's actions will not go down in history books, it will go down in his children's memories imprinted forever.

    Father's Day Poem About Being A Hero

    This world has seen many fathers
    Who have performed many great and noble things.

    Strengthened a nation,
    Silenced fears,
    Relieved suffering
    And changed the course of history.

    Yet the most great and noble father I have known
    Lives within the walls of my own home.
    He performs no extraordinary tasks,
    No miraculous feats;
    He just does what is right because
    It is right.

    He needs no adulation,
    No praise or glory of men.
    He just goes about doing good because
    That is how it makes him feel.

    But there are those that see his goodness.
    They are his children.
    Indeed, they may not always see
    But they know
    That this silent honor is what they will pass on
    To their children.

    They know that true greatness needs no praise
    It is found in the day-to-day living of unwearied goodness
    They have seen their father give.
    Such goodness is truly a remarkable thing,
    Far greater than any glory found in the annals of history.
    For one day the child will say:
    'He is my father'
    And know it is an honor.

  19. 39. 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!

    I am daddy's little girl (even though I'm 25) and always have been.

    A Poem From My Heart

    I was not sure what to get you
    On this very special day
    So I decided to write this poem from my heart
    I have some things I need to say:

    I would first like to thank you,
    For never giving up on me.
    You pushed me when I needed it
    And through your eyes I've learned to see

    We cannot give up when times are tough
    We've got to learn to lose before we can win
    And if I shall ever fall
    I know I will always get back up again

    Thanks to you, I hold my head high
    And carry myself with pride
    Thanks to you, I am somebody
    Who will never run and hide

    Through you I've learned to face my fears
    And take each day as it comes
    You cannot take anything with you when you're gone
    What's done is done

    You lead by example
    And because of you, I've learned a lot
    Thanks to all the dedication that you have demonstrated
    And the many many times that you have fought

    You have fought for our existence
    You have fought for everyone in your life
    Never have I seen you give up
    And thus in me you've instilled the fight

    Never will I back down
    For what I think is right
    You've given me the will and determination
    You've given me the might

    To learn how to stand up
    And learn to take a fall
    But most of all, dad
    I've learned you will never stop loving me at all
