Short Poetry For Father Day

A Father Is
A Father is neither an anchor to hold us back
nor a sail to take us there,
but always a guiding light
whose love shows us the way.
The warm light of your love
shines in my memories and in my heart
reminding me of your guidance
your care, and most of all, your love

Daddy's Hands
Daddy's hands were soft and kind
when I was crying;
Daddy's hands were hard as steel
when I'd done wrong;
Daddy's hands weren't always gentle,
but I've come to understand...
There was always love in Daddy's hands.

Daddy's Boots
I want to be like Daddy
Someday if I can,
Mom told me when I fill his shoes
I'll be a real big man.
His hat and tie's no problem,
(I'll grow a good amount),
and I may be able to fill his shoes,
It's these boots I'm worried about.

What Makes a Dad?
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,
And there was nothing more to add,
He knew his masterpiece was complete,
And He called it - Dad.

A Father
A father is a source of strength,
A teacher and a guide,
The one his family looks up to
With loving trust and pride...
A father is a helper
With a willing hand to lend,
A partner, an adviser,
And the finest kind of friend.
