appreciation, fathers day,
by David Shawn Dodson |
We have a laugh, and drink a beer,
Play some golf, and hunt for deer.
Your patience and wisdom, is without test,
Your confidence and clarity, is at its best.
Mentor and Dad, is what you are,
Saved and glad, your faith will go far.
I’m thankful and blessed, with a father like you,
Proud at its best, for the little things that you do.
Love and care, are words that I say,
Friendship to share, on Happy Father’s Day!

Father in heaven
we Love you
we come today to lift your name on high
father in heaven we Love you
we come today we lift our voices up to the sky
you are the dad above all dads, the greatest friend anyone ever had
the father who is loyal through and through
fathers day would not be fathers day
dear Lord if it was not for you
we thank you for this special day
and all our praises come your way Amen.

In the Living Years
nobody’s perfect we are who we are
there’s no one reason or no perfect rhyme
divided by difference in a generation of time
You see things your way and I see things another
I see the dreams and wishes of a Father and Mother,
and I’ll do my best to erase all your doubts and fears
I’m glad I got to tell you ~ “In the living years”
is inspired by the song
“In the living years” by Mike & The Mechanics 1988

10th grade, 11th grade, angst, anxiety, father, how i feel, imagery,
From the first moment we met
After the war was over,
To the time I buried you,
How I feared and yet loved you.
Everything I ever did
Regardless how hard I tried,
Somehow, was never enough.
Dad, I never felt your love
All I felt were angry fists,
Yet, mom said, it did exist.

appreciation, best friend, blessing, fathers day, first love, god, inspiration,
You light the fires within
my heart causing tiny
embers to become ablaze
filling my world with your
love's glow while sweeping
my love filled mind away
For each time when I pray
to You all over again, I start
to ascend for I am touched
deeply by Your bliss that in
love I simply begin again
I start to feel the way I felt
that memorable day we first
did meet and like that day
You are still the same as again
Lord, I am swept off my feet
And the fires are always fanned
daily that inside of my spirit lives
so deep while my heart will still
be a willing slave to a true love
who will not let me be...
"Happy Fathers Day, My Lord."
by Ilene Bauer |
My father is gone but my husband’s around,
As well as my kids and the grands,
So we made up a plan we’d link up for the day
As the calendar kind of demands.
Just some time in the house to spend shooting the breeze,
Catching up with a book and some songs,
Then a trip to the playground for running around
All together, as family belongs.
Who needs presents or barbecue, flowers or beer
To mark what is a made-up event?
For an afternoon joined with the ones that you love
Is the way Fathers’ Day should be spent.

child, dad, father, fathers day, men, my child, son,
You are a father in his eyes
An angel in disguise
And even though your blood does not run through his veins
The love and care that you give, it stains.
What more of a gift to give a young boy who is very impressionable
Than an excellent, positive role model to look up to
You have captured his world
And made time to be a part
So much that he has created a home for you
In his heart
I want to thank you for being the perfect father figure to my child
And all that you do.
On this day and always
I am grateful for you.

black african american, childhood, dad, daughter, dedication, family, father, fathers day, children, kids, friendship, inspirational, life, love,
Which love is not a struggle to the mind?
'tis easier to think love glides along,
regardless of a road not there to find,
or never caring what is right or wrong.
One love, of child, a father's steady hand,
protecting innocence, through many years
as if he knew the way, and had it planned,
to heal each mortal wound as it appears.
As if all things begin with his okay,
the good, the joy of life to build upon;
demanding right, and hoping in some way
he's always with you, even when he's gone.
The banged up knee, your losing of a friend,
are yours to feel, but his to comprehend.

Attentive parent at light,

care, dad, dedication, father, father daughter, love,
The laughter,the tears
the smiles, the frowns
they come, and they go like a spark
but through it all
one thing remains
the love you constantly display
in your own special way.
Toiling away with barely time to share your heart
it sometimes so hard to just share a thought
You go way beyond and above
for the ones you love
and I just want you to know
that you are appreciated
and we are grateful for all you do
Anyone can be a dad
but it takes a special someone,
a caring and loving man
to be a great father.
No matter the ups and downs
you are always there
You are daddy, dad, father
and there is no other that could ever fill your shoes
Happy Fathers Day
by John Loving Iii |
my eye's are filled with tears
and my mouth with cries of dispair
my heart is filled with remorse
and soul the bitterness of regret
i have a mind lacking
the conscioueness to repent
having only the will to resent
what fate drew to a close
how can I go on
having no posterity
no part of me
nothing for which i would surely die
still possessing that final lesson
that i would love to pass on
i have a name for a son
and precious love for a daughter
yet neither came to appear
never were the special memories
that i would hold so dear
happy fathers day? maybe
let's see how it plays out
by Agatha Jetaime |
dad, dedication, father, father daughter, fathers day, love, wisdom,
My dad is a genius,
He is a brilliant diamond!
My life is tedious,
He is a get-away island.
For me he's always there
With his harsh but loving critique.
His way of taking care
Of his loved children is antique.
Dear daddy, do you know
Just how much it's that I love you?
You don't like it to show:
But inside me it still accrues.
by Noel Villarosa |
father, fathers day, inspirational, longing, memory,
A pair of shoes that walked many tests
Skipping and hurdling the hardest
Shockproof to the condition around
Halt to prepare for what tomorrow's abound
A distinctive scent of sweat for a living
Upbringing of children is not failing
Many sails and flights brought them away
A love message to sustain each longing day
Hiding tears to withstand the test of time
Strong grip of every chance is sublime
Man of few words but a cherished action
Unload your worries, now at peace with God without distraction
In my most solitary moments
I will live to the image you represent

Son even though you are far away
I'm writing this little poem
To say I love everything you have to say
Even though I don't take a lot of time to call or listen
I love you everyday that goes by
And I know saying I love you
It doesn't happen all that much
I will always care and love you forever
With all my heart
All I want to tell you
Thank you for being my son that always care
I know in our lives these days
There is not a lot of sons like you
I just want to say I
Will always love you

family, fathers day, happiness, inspirational, journey, love, mothers day,
As in WE
Me, my father and my mother---
Talk of love, think of my brothers
And sisters like father and mother.
We're one happy adult tree.
In pairs we came, together we work.
In pairs we home, together we walk.
For little wonders world,
Further happier our bonds.
We are doves of one feather:
A flock we are together.
by Balbir Singh |
fathers day, hope, i love you, inspirational, mom, mother, mothers day,
Mums purely care for our life
They are kind and indeed very nice.
Dads protect us from darkness
They wish to bring into our lives brightness.
Be with your parents forever
They will love you forever.

appreciation, blessing, faith, father, fathers day, inspirational, spiritual,
Father, I admire your faith-anchored fortitude
Asserting your love-braced tenacity as the home’s pillar
Training me to face life’s challenges
Hoisting me up to where I am today…
Ever grateful am I to God for having you as my Dad*
Rejoicing for your legacy in my life!

devotion, faith, family, father, life, love, uplifting, fathers day, day,
as fathers day approaches
i sit and think of you
and all the things that we used to do
go to the dog pond fishing
and bramble picking too
somethings we may forget things but we will never forget about
I remember learing to ride my bike and you tried to teach us to swim
and sometimes we would look at you
with a cheeky grin
you always tried to do your best in all that you did do
so as fathers day approaches
I sit and think of you.
R.I.P dad we love you always and will forget you never
always in our thoughts and in our hearts forever. xxxx
I look up to the sky
and thank the Lord that you are in heaven on high

Fathers day is upon us yet again
But our love for you is still the same
Our lives have been empty
Since the day from the earth you had to depart
But your memory lives forever in our heart
You were the best there could be
And I know you're watching over me
It only seems like yesterday
Up to heaven you went to stay
I will see you again once more
When U meet me at heavens door.
Rest in peace dad
The daftest funniest dad there
Ever was, always made us laugh
All the jokes you used to do
There is no way we could ever forget you ***
Loved and dearly missed.

Happy Father’s Day
were always there
wiped my tears when I fell
carried in your arms and shoulders
You're spiritual, loving soul watching
guiding knowledge, and work ethics
in my growth. The man that
can move mountains
