Only A Dad - Edgar Guest

Only a dad with a tired face,
Coming home from the daily race,
Bringing little of gold or fame,
To show how well he has played the game,
But glad in his heart that his own rejoice
To see him come and to hear his voice.

Only a dad, neither rich nor proud,
Merely one of the surging crowd
Toiling, striving from day to day,
Facing whatever may come his way,
Silent, whenever the harsh condemn,
And bearing it all for the love of them.

Only a dad but he gives his all
To smooth the way for his children small,
Doing, with courage stern and grim,
The deeds that his father did for him.
This is the line that for him I pen:
Only a dad, but the best of men.


To My Father - William Hamilton Hayne

It matters not that Time has shed
His thawless snow upon your head,
For he maintains, with wondrous art,
Perpetual summer in your heart.

What Makes A Dad - Author Unknown

God took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle's flight,
Then God combined all these qualities,
And when there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so, He called it ... Dad.


A Father Means - Author Unknown

A Father means so many things,
An understanding heart,
A source of strength and 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.


    My Dad by John R. Humphries - Father's Poems

     My Dad isn't living on this earth, he's already passed away,
     And yet I feel his presence, he's here with me today.
     My mind travels back to yesteryear when I was a boy,
     I wasn't very big but I was his pride and joy.

     He'd bounce me on his knee and toss me in the air,
     All the while I'd giggle and laugh... we were quite a pair.
     He'd buy me ice cream cones when summer's heat would come,
     And in wintertime, snowballs would fly in front of our humble home.

     I was his little helper when projects he would do,
     I'd hand him tools, bailing wire, nails, and sometimes glue.
     When I was bad, he'd disciplined me wearing a great big frown,
     And though it hurt, the biggest pain was knowing I'd let him down.

     He was always teaching me things, he'd make me think and ponder,
     While showing me God's wonderful world full of miracles and wonder.
     Yes, my dad taught me right from wrong, work hard, and tell the truth,
     He'd pick me up when I would fall, my owies he would soothe.

     Now I really miss my dad, he was always there for me,
     And he was a tower of strength, a role model for me to see.
     He'd shower me with kisses, giving me lots love,
     And always strong bear hugs, yet he was gentle as a dove.

     I was truly blessed and honored by having the greatest dad.
     I wish every kid could have the wonderful dad I had.
