Father's Day Poems and Poetry

  • Father's Day Without You Is like Music

    Father's Day without you is like music
    Muted by a distance undisturbed.
    It is so faint I cannot tell the feeling,
    Though I myself am gripped with pensive sorrow.


    I listen all the more for what I cannot
    Hear, and you are somewhere close beside me.
    "It's joy!" you say, and then I nod, unbending,
    Listening still while weeping like fine rain.


    Yes, it's joy, and you again are with me.
    I turn to you, and I am in your arms.
    The music is a rhapsody around me,
    And I am safe again and free to cry.


    It is so beautiful, I cannot stand it,
    I am a torrent, shaking in my gladness,
    And you recede, as distant as the music,
    Smiling dimly far across the plain.


    "Please, please!" I say, yet know that what I'm asking
    No longer is. Your day will come and go,
    And I will crave and fear its restless turning
    Because my happiness must be my pain.

  • Children need a Daddy

    Children need a Daddy
    For many, many things:
    Like holding them high off the ground
    Where the sunlight sings!


    Like being the deep music
    That tells them all is right
    When they awaken frantic with
    The terrors of the night.


    Like being the great mountain
    That rises in their hearts
    And shows them how they might get home
    When all else falls apart.


    Like giving them the love
    That is their sea and air,
    So diving deep or soaring high
    They'll always find him there.

  • Labor Of Love

    A ready made family was by chance
    Inevitable
    By our labor of love romance
    A husband, a father, a friend
    In this great life that has no end
    'Tis but a journey; this circle of life
    The joys of children and of wife
    With stories told, you watched them play
    From winters snow to summers day
    With their coats and trousers hung on a hook
    Their pockets bulging out fat at the seem
    A marble, a comb, a map, a pocketbook
    Shared treasures of a little boys dream
    The shoes of a Father you do fill
    Not for fame or fortune; Only your goodwill
    With guidance and love they see all you do
    The little child in themselves is in you too
    As the hours, days, years go by
    On your loving ways we do rely
    In this great circle of life
    A husband, a Father ,A friend
    Our love for you knows no end.

  • Happy Father's Day

    A Dad is a person
    who is loving and kind,
    And often he knows
    what you have on your mind.
    He's someone who listens,
    suggests, and defends.
    A dad can be one
    of your very best friends!
    He's proud of your triumphs,
    but when things go wrong,
    A dad can be patient
    and helpful and strong
    In all that you do,
    a dad'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
    just to call him your dad!
    Thank you, Dad...
    for listening and caring,
    for giving and sharing,
    but, especially, for just being you!
    Happy Father's Day.

Dad You Are My World, Fathers Day Poem Cards


  • A Father’s Love - A Poem (Dedicated to God, Our Heavenly Father)

    Love so true, a father gives

    his children are, forever his.

    From cradle, into adulthood

    gives shelter, in the deepest flood.

    His arm, embraces you so tender

    for love so true, will always render.

    Compassion, in his loving eyes

    Forgiveness, from the heart inside.

    The strictest measure, he will place

    conduct his home, with all his grace.

    Respect his person, dearest child

    Your father always, by your side.
    By Maria Wells-Burr
  • When the Angel of the lord
    took my Father away

    He stood alone upon a hill
    as the clouds burst with fury
    drenching him.
    His mind was shook but very clear
    of the reason he was standing here,
    His farther died the other day
    and he wanted to be as close to heaven
    as he could be.

    A light appeared in the darkened sky
    bringing hope to him as he stood by.
    An angel came down from up above
    To give him hope for the ones he loved
    Your father has a place up here
    he softly said as he disappeared.

    Now I know that he's at rest
    I can plan my life as he knew best.
    But I'll never forget that rainy day
    When the Angel of the lord
    took my Father away.

  • Play With Me

    © 1989 Warren Throckmorton

    Theres a magic moment sent down from the sky.
    Descending so stealthily, it almost passes me by.
    It may be in the morning or the late afternoon,
    Or sometime after midnight, when the cow jumps over the moon.

    Come, play with me.
    Your presence is requested at a banquet for a bear.
    The giraffe and the tiger insist you be there.
    Please, hurry daddy, the tea is getting cold.
    And you are getting old.
    Come stay with me, play with me, daddy, please. . .

    She brightens me with sunshine twinkling from her eyes.
    She captures me with silence and playful long good-byes.
    Its see you later alligator, after while crocodile.
    Watch my special cartwheel, lets be buddies for a while.

    And come, play with me.
    Your presence is requested at a banquet for a bear.
    The giraffe and the tiger insist you be there.
    Please, hurry daddy, the tea is getting cold.
    And you are getting old.
    Come stay with me, play with me, daddy, please. . .
  • Strength from My Dad

    Little I knew,what dreams to dream...
    But an inner urge always pushed me...
    to break free....the strong frontier...
    To build my nest....far or near...
    My inner light caught the auburn highlights...
    Of my intricate thoughts...my subconscious far-sight...
    The pillar of my strength...my "dad" caught me...
    there i went.an Indian student ...to Aussie...
    A speeding child careened passed me...
    As I take a leap of faith...to the University...
    thoughtless ...ignorant...and cruel remarks came...
    there i stood...but ..not drained in shame...
    The tough gritty..strikingly beautiful place...
    with its soaring buildings and ornate bridges....
    the vast parks were quiet and still.....
    the whole neighbourhood touched in emerald hill....
    No din and bustle...no rickshaw tinkling....
    no trams..no sweat...no girlfriend winking....
    I stood alone in my Indian outfit...
    My eyes moistened...with undaunted spirit...
    I walked through the foyer...with its high ceiling and mosaic...
    The wooden door stained...with panel of cloudy glass..
    struggling to change the world's perception...
    with persistent patience ...I still stand amass....
    my courage,my will,my passion..my zeal...
    my anxiety..my fears...my fist and inner fury....
    made me win the battle..i fought at length....
    I stand now...Warrior..in the Sanctuary...............
