Traditional Poetry For Father Day

The Things You Taught Me I Will Always Know
The things you taught me I will always know.
How could I not? The roots have sunk so deep:
All lessons of the heart that I will keep
No matter who I am or where I go.
Kids learn from what their parents are, and so
You are my book of life, the thoughts I reap;
Only in your arms I quiet sleep;
Under my words your voice sings soft and slow.
From you I learned the rules of right and wrong
Against which I at times had to rebel,
Though with regret I carry with me still.
How lucky I am to have been loved so well,
Even as I pushed against your will,
Relying on a father fair and strong.

Thank you Dad
Thank you Dad
For always being there
For being strong
Yet showing you cared.
For being my protector
And setting the rules
For the rides, the money,
And the help with school.
For all the times i was grounded
For my own good
I may not have been happy,
But i always understood
That i am lucky
To be one of the few
To have a dad that loves me
As much as you do.
I love you, Dad.

Three Small Words
Thank you, Dad.
Three small words.
So much to add.
For all your love
And your support
A million words
Would be too short.
The words, "i love you"
Seem too few
To express the love
I have for you.

My Hero
As I ponder the love that I saw in his eyes,
A Godly love, given without compromise....
I recall many times that he stood by my side,
And prodded me on with great vigor and pride.

His voice ever confident, firm and yet fair,
Always speaking with patience, tenderness and care.
The power and might of his hands was so sure,
I knew there was nothing we couldn't endure.

It's true, a few others provided insight,
Yet, he laid the foundation that kept me upright.
He's the grandest of men to have lived on this earth,
Although he's not royal by stature or birth.

He's a man of great dignity, honor and strength.
His merits are noble, and of admirable length.
He's far greater than all other men that I know,
He's my Dad, he's my mentor, my friend and hero.
