Fathers Day Poems 2016

My dad is my role model for
Most everything I do.
I look to him to see what's right
He always gets me through.
(Repeat last two lines)

I hope my father knows how much
I love him and I care.
He is my hero and my rock,
My dad is always there.
(Repeat last two lines)

My father is essential to
My life and happiness.
My feelings are so strong for him,
My heart cannot express.
(Repeat last two lines)

There's so much more about my dad
That I would like to say,
But now I'll end by saying to you Dad,
Happy Father's Day.
(Repeat last two lines)

Fathers day poem 2016


What Makes a Dad
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,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,
Then God combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so,
He called it ... Dad


Everything Dad

A little girl needs her daddy
To love her with manly charm,
To soothe her when she's hurt,
And keep her safe from harm.

A girl needs her dad
To show her a man who's good,
To help her make right choices,
As only a father could.

A woman needs her father
Just to be aware,
He'll always be there for her
To sustain her and to care.

You've been all these things, Dad.
I hope that you can see
How much I treasure you;
You mean everything to me.

By Joanna Fuchs


Perhaps we'll never understand each other.
Loving doesn't mean that we agree.
If that were so, then I would say, why bother?
But there are things I know I'll never see.
I'm sure your heart knows what I don't yet know:
The pain of loving a reluctant son;
The anger, coming fast and building slow,
Of being helpless to control someone.
You want only that I grow up right,
But you know what right is, and I still don't.
I have to learn to wield my inner light,
And if I follow yours, well, then I won't.
I'm sorry for the anger in the air;
Though we fight, my love is always there.

Fathers Day Poems From Daughter # 2015

A Father means so many things...
A 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...

I love you, Dad, and want you to know,
I feel your love wherever I go.
Whenever I've problems, you're there to assist,
The ways you have helped me would make quite a list.
Your wisdom and knowledge have shown me the way,
And I'm thankful for you as I live day by day.
I don't tell you enough how important you are,
In my universe you're a bright shining star.
Our childhood flew, watching you toil so hard!
Days and night appeared almost the same,
when we looked up to you.
And, every time we were infirm,
you stayed up all night with us.
And, was up and about for your business,
the very next day.
And, today when we fight on petty issues and end up laughing,
Life is blissful in your smile!
We have grown up seeing you fighting a battle of will,
to make both ends meet,
and, while doing so…
You always kept an eye on our health and well-being,
Standing tall for our families.
You are all the strength that we look upon.
Your forte lies in learning new things,
be it health-issues, horoscopes or English.
Didi has always been your sweetheart,
As you shared your learning’s and knowledge with her.
A disciplinarian! Yet, never short of Love and Care.
Be it for us, or for the society!
Today, as we still fight our battles to bring stability in our Life.
We feel stronger and better,
to have your constant blessing and Love bestowed on all of us!!!
You are our IDEAL,
And, will remain the Armour of our Life,
“Papa” (The Father) to us, forever!
Happy Father's Day!!!

Fathers day poem 2016
Fathers day poem 2016


A little girl needs Daddy
For many, many things: 
Like holding her high off the ground
Where the sunlight sings! 
Like being the deep music
That tells her all is right
When she awakens frantic with
The terrors of the night. 
Like being the great mountain
That rises in her heart
And shows her how she might get home
When all else falls apart. 
Like giving her the love
That is her sea and air, 
So diving deep or soaring high
She'll always find him there.

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.

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.

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.

By Joanna Fuchs

Glad You're My Dad
I'm so glad that you're my dad;
You're one in a million, Pop!
When it comes to first-class fathers,
You're the absolute cream of the crop.

You love me no matter what,
Whether I'm a goodie or baddie;
I really love you, Pa;
You're a fine and fantabulous daddy!

Happy Father's Day

So this is your first Father's Day,
Your first one as a dad;
Get ready for surprises now,
The wildest you've ever had.

Just when you think you've got it down,
There's a new and different stage;
This little person changes a lot
With each fascinating age.

Being a dad takes all you've got;
Your heart and mind you'll invest;
It's the hardest job you'll ever have,
And the one you'll love the best.

Do you know who I want to be like?
It's not Roosevelt, Reagan or Ike.
It's my father.

Who taught me to drive and skate?
Who taught me to care and not hate?
It's my father.

The man I'll respect till I die,
Who taught me always to try,
It's my father.

He was never too busy for me;
He's my ideal man, totally.
My father!

Thanks for being a wonderful father, Dad!

Fathers day poem 2016


By Karl Fuchs

Every day the whole year through,
I feel grateful you are my father.
Some fathers don't have time for their kids,
But for you I'm never a bother.

You always make the effort to listen and share;
You're there whenever you're needed.
Because I know how much you care,
My problems are all defeated.

Dad, you are truly admired and adored,
And I hope you always know,
Your daughter's affection for you is strong,
And my love continues to grow.

Happy Fathers Day!

I am your child; you are my dad;
I really appreciate the times we've had.
I feel a bit sad for others I see,
Who don't have a wonderful father, like me.

For me you are perfect; you're wise and you're strong;
You loved me and taught me what's right and what's wrong.
For those reasons I love you, and to you I confide,
I want to be a parent who fills you with pride.

Happy Father's Day, Dad, just one day of the year,
But I'm happy to tell you, you haven't a peer.

By Karl and Joanna Fuchs


You never said I'm leaving
You never said goodbye
You were gone before I knew it, 
And only God knew why
A million times I needed you, 
A million times I cried
If Love alone could have saved you, 
You never would have died
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, 
The day God took you home. 

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.


Father, today I bring to Thee
This boy of mine whom Thou hast made.
In everything he looks to me,
In turn, I look to Thee for aid…
Hold Thou my hand as I hold his,
And so guide me that I may guide.
Teach me, Lord, that I may teach,
And keep me free from foolish pride…

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…


You are my hero, Dad
You're my secure foundation.
When I think of you, I'm filled with love
And fond appreciation.
You make me feel protected;
I'm sheltered by your care.
You're always my true friend; and Dad,
When I need you, you're always there.
You have a place of honor
Deep within my heart.
You've been my superhero, Dad,
Right from the very start.

explore more,  more you read the best you can find even from all the nice ones!
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.

I feel safe when you are with me;
You show me fun things to do;
You make my life much better;
The best father I know is you.

I'm happy you're my Dad
And so I want to say
I love you, Dad, and wish you
A Happy Father's Day!

By Joanna Fuchs

My dad and I-we think alike, 
He knows just what I mean
Before I even say a word
He reads, well, in between. 

My dad and I-we like to fish
Or build a model plane, 

Or fix a broken chair or two
Or just a windowpane. 

My dad and I-we know the score
Of every single game; 
Sometimes he's really busy, too
But he takes me just the same. 

My dad and I-we go swimming too, 
Each year and sometimes twice. 
My dad and I-we do everything; 
My dad-he's really nice. 
Phyllis C. Michael

Fathers can be solitary mountains, 
All their love rock-like, steep, and strong. 
Though warm and caring, somehow they belong
Halfway home to mothers' bubbling fountains. 
Each of us needs love that knows no quarter, 
Reminding us of bonds that cross a border, 
Strengthening our sense of right and wrong. 
Author Unknown

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.

You are my hero, Dad
You're my secure foundation.
When I think of you, I'm filled with love
And fond appreciation.

You make me feel protected;
I'm sheltered by your care.
You're always my true friend; and Dad,
When I need you, you're always there.

You have a place of honor
Deep within my heart.
You've been my superhero, Dad,
Right from the very start.

By Joanna Fuchs

Fathers need not fathers be. 
All one needs to do is choose
To love for life, and that embrace, 
Held long and hard, bestows the grace
Each craves. For all in time must lose, 
Restored alone by memory. 
So now it is with you and me. 
Author Unknown

Over the years
As we grow old, 
We remember our father
So brave and bold. 

In the garden, 
Leaning on the plow, 
He would listen to me; 
I see him now. 

He would give advice
And understand; 
He was always there
To lend a hand. 

God made fathers
Strong and firm, 
For he knew our lives
Would have great concerns. 

So he gave us fathers
To teach us to pray, 
And guide our lives, 
And show us the way. 

So on his day
Let's take the time
To say "Thanks, dad. 
I'm glad you're mine."

I love you, Dad, and want you to know,
I feel your love wherever I go.

And I'm thankful for you as I live day by day.
I don't tell you enough how important you are,
In my universe you're a bright shining star.
