Happy Father’s Day Poems 2018
What Makes a Dad
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,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need.
My Dad’s Hands
Bedtime came, we were settling down,
I was holding one of my lads.
As I grasped him so tight, I saw a strange sight:
My hands. .they looked like my dad’s!
I remember them well, those old gnarled hooks,
there was always a cracked nail or two.
And thanks to a hammer that strayed from its mark,
his thumb was a beautiful blue!
They were rough, I remember, incredibly tough,
as strong as a carpenter’s vice.
But holding a scared little boy at night,
they seemed to me awfully nice!
The sight of those hands – how impressive it was
in the eyes of his little boy.
Other dads’ hands were cleaner, it seemed
(the effects of their office employ).
I gave little thought in my formative years
of the reason for Dad’s raspy mitts:
The love in the toil, the dirt and the oil,
rusty plumbing that gave those hands fits!
Thinking back, misty-eyed, and thinking ahead,
when one day my time is done.
The torch of love in my wrinkled hands
will pass on to the hands of my son.
I don’t mind the bruises, the scars here and there
or the hammer that just seemed to slip.
I want most of all when my son takes my hand,
to feel that love lies in the grip.
“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.”
“Most truly honored, and as truly dear, / If worth in me or ought do I appear, / Who can of right better demand the same / Than may your worthy self from whom it came?”
“Walk alongside me, daddy / and hold my little hand. / I have so many things to learn / that I don’t yet understand. / Every child needs a gentle hand / to hold them as they grow. / So walk alongside me, Daddy. / We have a long way to go.”
“No thoughts of fondness e’er appear / More found, than those I write of here! / No name can e’er on tablet shine, / My father! more beloved than thine!”
“I gave little thought in my formative years / of the reason for Dad’s raspy mitts: / The love in the toil, the dirt and the oil, / rusty plumbing that gave those hands fits! / Thinking back, misty-eyed, and thinking ahead, / when one day my time is done. / The torch of love in my own wrinkled hands / will pass on to the hands of my son.”
Fathers hold you when you have bad dreams
And they comfort you when all is lost it seems.
Fathers teach you to dribble a basketball and shoot a free throw
And they lead you as you grow.
Fathers teach you how to drive a car
And they try to teach you how to putt for par.
Fathers wipe the tears of your broken heart
And they hold your hand when you don’t know how to start.
Fathers quiz the boys who take you on a date
And they scold those boys who bring you home late.
Fathers carry you on their shoulders when you’re too small to see
And they watch as you giggle when they bounce you on their knee.
Fathers extend their feet to you when they teach you how to dance
And they always give you a second chance.
Fathers wait in the wings while you start your own life
And they pray for a husband to make you a wife.
Fathers walk you down the aisle on your wedding day
But fathers never really give their little girls away.
You never said I’m leaving
You never said goodbye
You were gone before I knew it,
A million times I needed you,
A million times I cried
If Love alone could have saved you,
In Life, I loved you dearly
In death I love you still
In my heart, you hold a place,
That no one could ever fill
It broke my heart to lose you,
But you didn’t go alone
For part of me went with you.
