Poems for Dads

Thank You Dad

Thank you for the laughter,

For the good times that we share,

Thanks for always listening,

For trying to be fair.

Thank you for your comfort,

When things are going bad,

Thank you for the shoulder,

To cry on when I'm sad.

This poem is a reminder that

All my life through,

I'll be thanking Heaven

For a Special Dad like you.

Friendship With Dad

Not many people can say

they have a true friend

Someone that stands by your side

and shows devotion with no end

The person that encourages you

to reach for your dreams and goals

The one that understands the hardships

hidden deep within your soul

That person that stays up at night

When you need a listening ear

The only person in the world

that knows your deepest fear

That shoulder that you cry on

When life doesn't go according to plan

They help you dust yourself off

and muscle the strength to stand

That person you can count on

When times are good and bad

Someone you're blessed with...

I call mine Dad!

by Tukesha Ware

Dear Dad

You mean so very much to me,

And I want you to know

That you are always in my heart,

No matter where I go.

You're always giving, always there

To help in any way;

The loving things you've done for me,

I never could repay.

I can't imagine what I'd do

Without the love you give.

I'll treasure your sweet heart of gold

As long as I shall live.

Awesome Dad

When I think about my father,

and the years we've had to share

I'm thankful just to know

that his love is always there.

Through the crazy days of youth

and now that I'm "mature"

the special bond between us

is still strong and will endure.

And though he's growing older

he grows sweeter with each year

my "knight in shining armor,"

I'm so glad to have you here!

by Jill Lemming

My daddy taught me

My daddy taught me that we all are special

We all have our own faults yet we all still are special.

My daddy taught me to be brave

To feel the fear yet still be brave.

My daddy taught me to make the most of every moment

To make the best of the people you share moments with

To make lots of memories to create a past

In case in the future I am lonely

My daddy taught me to love

And love will comfort me.

A Father Like You

I just want you to know

you mean the world to me

Only a heart as dear as yours

would give so unselfishly.

The many things you've done,

all the times that you were there,

Helps me know deep down inside

how much you really care.

Even though I might not say it,

I appreciate all you do

So richly blessed is how I feel

for having a father just like you.

A father is a person who loves and respects you.

He is honest and he never neglects you.

He is the greatest that your eyes will ever see.

No other man like him will there ever be.

Poems for Grandads

Walking with Grandpa

I like to walk with Grandpa,

His steps are short like mine.

He doesn't say "Now Hurry Up,"

He always takes his time.

I like to walk with Grandpa,

His eyes see thing like mine do -

Wee pebbles bright, a funny cloud,

Half hidden drops of dew.

Most people have to hurry,

They don't stop and see.

I'm glad that God made Grandpa,

Unrushed, and young like me.

~ by Thena Smith

A Beautiful Man

It's your birthday, you deserve a treat,

You're my grandpa, and you're very sweet.

Whatever you wish or simply desire,

Your kind words, always inspire.

Hope you're not worried, about your age,

You're just turning, another page.

Your journey has been, an exciting book,

Beautiful memories, through pictures we look.

Today we celebrate, your life that's been full,

Happy moments, naturally you pull.

Most importantly, we're here to share,

A beautiful man, with a heart that is rare.


No-one like Grandad

A Grandad is a person who is loving and kind,

And he often can tell, what's on your mind.

He's someone who listens, suggests, and defends

A Granddad can be one, of your very best friends!

He's proud of your triumphs, but when things

go wrong

A Grandad can be patient and helpful and strong.

In all that you do, Grandad’s love plays a part

There's always a place for him deep in your heart

And each year that passes, you're even more glad

More grateful and proud, to call him Grandad.

Love and Guidance

Your loving granddaughter thinking of you,

We are a team, our bond is like glue.

A few words, to show how I feel,

Straight from my heart, true and so real.

You have always, been there for me,

Supported me, like the roots of a tree.

Sometimes I caused you, worry and aches,

You pushed me to grow, with my mistakes.

Taught me to be honest, truth never mask,

You listen patiently, when questions I ask.

Thank you so much, for loving me,

Your love and guidance, has set me free.


A Special Time For You

My grandchild, this day

is a special time for you,

And it also means a lot

to those who love you, too

So, along with lots of love and pride

on this very special day,

Comes a wish that you’ll be blessed

in a very special way.

Grandchild, On This Special Day

There’s always been a lot of pride

in every thought of you,

And on this special day,

that’s more than ever true

So this brings you warmest wishes

and a special heartfelt prayer

That God will always bless your life

and keep you in His care.
