Who is the one man in your life that has always been there for you no matter what? Of course we’re talking about Dad! Father’s Day Poems can be one of the best ways to show him a little extra love for being your rock. Here are some Father’s Day Poems we found that are sure to bring tears to the big guy’s eyes.
1. “A Father Means”: Unknown Author
“Father means so many things. An understanding heart. A source of strength and of support. Right from the very start. A constant readiness to help. In a kind and thoughtful way. With encouragement and forgiveness. No matter what comes your way. A special generosity and always affection, too. A Father means so many things. When he’s a man like you ..”
There is no possible way dad’s going to open his card to this and not shed a tear. We shed a tear reading it, too! It’s something short and sweet, straight to the point. It’s so important to let dad know just how much he means to you. After all, you will always be his baby!
2. “Dad”: Karen K. Boyer
“He never looks for praises. He’s never one to boast. He just goes on quietly working. For the ones he loves the most. His dreams are seldom spoken. His wants are very few. And most of the time his worries. Will go unspoken too. He’s there… a firm foundation. Through all our storms of life. A sturdy hand to hold. In times of stress and strife. A true friend we can turn to. When times are good or bad. One of our greatest blessings, the man that we call Dad.”
Ugh, this one is such a tearjerker. It’s perfect for any son or daughter to pass along. We guarantee with this poem, Dad will see just how much you truly love him. Even if you were a brat growing up (hey, we all were). So don’t hesitate to make up for all those late night high school arguments. He was just looking out for you!
3. “In Her Eyes”: Michelle W. Emerson
“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.”
This is by far the perfect daughter-to-father poem. There is no doubt that every girl in this world is in fact a daddy’s girl, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. Being a daughter… there is such a sacred bond with a father. You are his princess. You are the most beautiful thing in his eyes. You are his pride and joy and nothing will ever change that. If this piece doesn’t tug at his heartstrings or yours, then we don’t know what will!
4. “Life Lessons”: Joanna Fuchs
This is one of the best Father’s Day Poems we could find. It’s a little longer than the others, but the message is so beautiful. This is the perfect poem for any child to give to Dad.
“You may have thought I didn’t see. Or that I hadn’t heard. Life lessons that you taught to me. But I got every word. Perhaps you thought I missed it all. And that we’d grow apart. But Dad, I picked up everything. It’s written on my heart. Without you, Dad, I wouldn’t be. The person I am today; You built a strong foundation. No one can take away. I’ve grown up with your values, And I’m very glad I did; So here’s to you, dear father, From your forever grateful kid.”
We are literally left speechless after this one.
