Here is a post for Father’s Day that I posted in 2020! It says all that I feel for my dad. I pray that all fathers out there had a wonderful day and were treated like kings.
This is my special dad!
HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!
Dad, you were a special man!
You were always there to lend a hand.
You treated us with kindness.
You were always fair.
You showed us how much you cared.
You wore a happy smile upon your handsome face.
And taught us how to appreciate God’s grace.
You made our lives so full and rich.
Teaching us to be good was your main pitch.
You would tease and joke.
While always a cigarette at your lips you would smoke.
You were talented with your hands.
Fixing and creating things on command.
You thought of others before yourself.
Your own troubles you put away on a shelf.
You left this world for a better place.
Leaving here on Earth a large empty space.
You gave us your love in every way.
I love you more than I can say!
I miss you more and more each day!
Happy Father’s Day with Love, Dad!
Your loving daughter,
Jan (my nickname by Dad)
I wish all the fathers out there a wonderful Father’s Day!
Here is another poem I wrote several years ago – WHAT IS A FATHER?
What is a father?
He is someone whose lap you can crawl onto and take a nap.
He is someone who reads you a story at bedtime.
He is someone who listens to you when you need a friend.
He is someone who picks you up and gives you a much needed hug.
He is someone who will play catch with you after you receive a new glove.
He is someone who will laugh at your poor jokes and tell some funny ones of his own.
He is someone who gives you a pat on your back for a job well done.
He is someone who says ‘I love you’.
He is someone who will give you money for your first date.
He is someone who will let you take his car for a drive right after you get your license.
He is someone you can call when you have get into trouble.
He is someone who will listen to you and never lose patience.
He is someone who will never judge you unfairly.
He is someone who has taught you the difference between right and wrong.
And he is someone who one day you will treasure beyond reason when he is gone.
Love and appreciate your father while he is here for life is too short not to.
