the raindrops’ story
tells a tale of great valor
A father’s brave heart,
and a daughter’s frail physique
a melodious harmony

Sad heart breaks in two.
A walk with pain, sorrow, death,
unbearable pain.
Daddy snatched away from her.
Scared, defenceless, eleven.

A Poem From My Daughter

Daddy, I love you
For all that you do
I'll kiss you and hug you
Cause you love me, too
You feed me and need me
To teach you to play
So smile cause I love you
On this Father's Day

Her Chair

hush now my daughter
let lamplights crown your damp hair
waiting for beaded prayers
to bathe teary sky 
empty Mom's chair rocks no more…
heaven sails with her pearled lips

Choka Me, Dr. Ram Mehta

I am Cordelia

I am Cordelia in King Lear
My love to you cannot be expressed
With meaningless words the man created.
I know you will never ask me
Or ever wanted to know
Because my deeds surely tells you
All the words you want to hear

Short Father Daughter poem by Alozor Michael Ikechukwu| Details | |


She calls you father
Yet you stole her innocence
You broke into her sacred chamber
She calls you father
You are married to her mother
Sired, did same her half-sisters
She calls you father
Yet you stole her innocence.

You Left

A heart once filled with happiness, love and stability, light as a feather it was, 
now a dark scary bottomless pit left since the day you decided to walk out on me.

Never again will i be the same!
Lonliness, like a friend i find comfort in its arms. A fugitive to love, i have become.

Short Father Daughter poem by dannielle dugan| Details | |


you are my father
my knight in shining armour
my protecter, my guard
my helper when its to hard

but now your not here
i feel so alone
i cant see or hear you
my heart turns to stone

i finally see you
holding and caring for another girl
my heart is breaking
i want you back in my world

Short Father Daughter poem by Alozor Michael Ikechukwu| Details | |


How can I not always sleep
In comfort
Until the crow of the cock?

How can I always sleep
And be half-awake, yet
Not caressed by the cane's crack?

How can I always jump up
From sleep so sweet
Not reaching in pain for my bare back?

But wait...!
How can I not?
Isn't she my father's fault?

Short Father Daughter poem by Cheyenne Kay| Details | |

Ain't Dreamin' of a Daddy

I'd like to do so much
With you
But that's
A hell of a lot
To ask of
A drinking man
Father-Daughter Dance
I'm from the South
And I ain't ahamed 
To say I ain't dreamin'
Of a Daddy
I got all I need
I got my Mommy
She's just as good 
And better
She's a fighter
We can live
Without you

Short Father Daughter poem by jessie conner| Details | |


I see you 
stand around
looking confused
being useless

you might come 
my way
maybe I say
, but you don't
and just walk away

I then see you
stopped dead in track 
you pull out your phone 
to give me a text

try to get away
you  say through
your letters
I reply okay
because I know I better.

World Cup

19 Girls chasing a ball:
Dirty shins, sweaty bodies, bouncing ponytails.
Grass stains galore,
I stand: panting, watching.
Never fast enough for this hunt.
For my father, I must stay.
For my father, I bloody my porcelin knees.
A spotted rocket flies my direction.
Think fast!
Kick! Goal!
Maybe there is hope for me.

Daddy's li'l girl

His warm hands ,

One Billion Rising

Today we rise.

No more hiding in the shadows,

of culture,

No more silent complicity,

defensive arguments,
sickening pretences,
shabby excuses,

for the actions of men,

brutal and coarse and vulgar and obscene and murderous and abusive.

Today, we rise,

as one.

Today the change starts,

with me,
within me.

Today we rise.

Who owns the child?
    the one who has no place. 

Is it The One Track Minds?
    Who only listen the themselves?

Is it the recovering addict? 
    Who caused all the pain?
Is it the uncaring trier?
    Who knows not a thing?

Is it the Loving Light?
    Who gave all he had?


Is it the trapped memories 
    Torturing her inside?

Short Father Daughter poem by Eve Anderson| Details | |

My Dad

My dad passed away when I was nine
That it didn't make me feel fine
I have pictures of him
Which always makes me grin
I have some memories
But not so many
I miss him everyday and night
Which I think of him with delight
He was way to young
For him to be gone
It's been so long ago since he left us so dear
I love him always and true
Theres no other dad like him so true

Short Father Daughter poem by Michael Hawk Moore| Details | |

Dam Change

“Dam Change”
Dam change.
Mother and father love their plain ponytails and Lionel trains.
Then infancy crawls to scrap knees, tea parties. And headphone blast fast tones accompanied, by the arrogances of “me”.
Old Lionel trains sleep and ponytails worn plain train to feed or seek maternity.
Then mother and father love their plain ponytails and Lionel trains.
How I hate change.

The Birth of a Thought

I gave birth to a thought today
A shiny little supposition
It wept about all the possibilities
Endless creativity 
Directionless refractivity
Like protons racing around an atom blaster
My thoughts began to multiply
It was the Big Bang of my Universe
Then I heard the voice of an angel
Say, “Daddy, this is my science project.”
And now the birth of a thought
Gave birth to a Black Hole

Fun-Frosted Memories

Dee’s father bought a fancy, family sled 
to her amusement and joy
He shocked the town pulling this sled around
With his good, shiny Model T Ford

Memories run through Dee’s mind
At the family hardware store,
she would climb the latter up to the loft
and sit inside the sled stored there,
reflecting on cool-warmed times-
a father’s smile…a heart sublime

What is a Father

What is a Father?

A Father is a man
with patients

A Father is a man
who loves unconditionally

A Father is a man
who stands by you

A Father is a MAN

A Father is a man
who holds you when your sad

A Father is a man
Who tells you it will “Be Okay” even if he doesn't know it will

A Father is a man
who's not prejudice about age

To a Father,
you will always be his “little girl”

Short Father Daughter poem by Kofi Asokwa-Nkansah| Details | |


This is know departure
But a posture
Distance journeys on without me
Aloof I stand to watch
The railing speed of time
My Heart, tells it all
All grown now
Though gone for just a while
Here, just a departing distance apart
'Move on!' 'Move on!'
For me to cross
Cross to my heart
My daughter
She stands in waiting
Yes, those are Her feet
I just got off the pacing train
Annabell I see, to dearly hug

Nepotism's Only Kin Deep

Chip off the old block;
        It runs in the family.
This all needs to stop
        In our meritocracy.

Titles through ages;
        A generation’s game.
Lordships by bloodline,
        Some things need to change.

Birth won’t denote skill;
        It keeps people out.
Mobility’s lost
        When money they flout.

James Caan can shove it,
        And let workers in.
Nobles move over,
        Let our time begin.

Paternal Bonding

They say the Father wound

runs deep in society

as it keep you from each other

same as father daughter

materialism creates a chasm

beyond the father wound


I think


Mother wound is now equal

in the pursuit of equality

career is paramount

the maternal drive is subdued

oh, there'll be time later

but what about the generation gap

late children suffer

you're like grandparents

if you please 


can you see?

Hey Dad , Where are You?
You Have Absolutely no clue!!

With Everything i needed,
all i ever got was mistreated ,

 I looked all around ,
You were No where To be found,

You didnt dare,
To Show me you care,

Where were you? 
When i Needed You True,

I Now Look Back,
& Officially Give you The Sack,

Your No Father ,
Have None I'd Rather,

You Hated Me,
Why Couldnt i See ,

Sorry I Don't Mean to Whine
But Your No Father Of Mine

Short Father Daughter poem by Miche Ulman| Details | |


A serpent underneath blue sky,
in shade of man, in twinkle of an eye,
above brick wall, in the structure, at the floor,
venom of white dove; contaminated food, undrinkable water,
misguided youth, pregnant daughter, unfaithful father and hateful son,
mothers do pray while we walk through Babylon;
on teli and in the press, on top shells,
price none the less, in bedroom and at your door..
dawn of a new day seemed to be dark,
after all.

A Portrait Of Friendship

I gazed across the room,
A portrait of friendship,
Parents of generations,
Young and old blessed with friends,
Gathered to dine and enjoy another's company,
The sounds of music in the air,
The pianist caressed the keys,
With an old familiarity,
Songs of generations,
Lively and enjoyable,
A cup of tea, complimented,
With delicious foods,
A goodtime had by all,
A portrait of friendship.

The Chosen Path

You'll see one day
what now I know.
When I am gray
and you are grown...
With wisdom you will
lead your life,
it's to that end I've prayed.
You'll find one day
as man and wife
you'll cherish choices made...
So take my hand
and come with me,
'cause its further down
the road I see...
With hopes and dreams
you've followed me,
but soon enough you'll wake...
For hidden in that space and time
is the pathway you will take.

Gender Discrimination

Who are you
Your father's son or daughter
Or your mothers?
If you are your father's
You gotta have his surname
But if you are your mother's
Her name you don't take
But once you get married
Oh, boy! Your surname won't change
Hey girls, What makes you change your surname?
This is anomalous
Seemingly unfair
An assault on women rights
A blow to the fair sex
Whoever hath made this rule
He must be a damn big fool!!

Short Father Daughter poem by POETESS DARKLY| Details | |

Sweet Demise

Father, I mourn not for the child you despise,
Your drunkenness or hurtful lies.
I mourn the father I wish I knew,
I envy the child with caring father,
When loving your kid was never a bother.
That tender side was just never you.
Father I mourn not for the abuse, 
Using a traumatic childhood, your excuse.
Your absence a blessing in disguise,

 I envy the loving father I never had,
The man I'd be proud to call dad.
Your death was a sweet demise.

Short Father Daughter poem by Lilith Rodriguez| Details | |


 Everyone's jealous, 
I don't see why.
Do they know at night,
I try not to cry?
Pouring out tears, 
the bruises are endless.
But they're all fooled, 
What a great actress.
"But you're popular,"
they say,
"Everyone loves you." 
They don't love me, 
they just notice me
making my way through
this miserable place 
that we call Earth. 
Countless days 
holding back tears,
after a slap on the cheek
caused by a dirty dish
left in the sink.

Short Father Daughter poem by Lily Mayfield| Details | |


Four walls
A roof
And those days waiting for your calls

500 days
And you're still not here
You said always
But it's been over a year

First it was Thanksgiving
Then it was Christmas
I feel guilty
For being unforgiving
But you chose to miss this

I'm not the only one
We all shed tears
We hide it in the sun
And we'll hide it for years

You left us here
You went alone
You chose to disappear 
Now we're all grown

Please come back home

Fairy Tales, Angels and Cuddles

What would we do without Cuddles 
They help us to get out of muddles 
When we're feelin' down, they replace a frown 
And they fill us so full of Love Bubbles 

Beethoven, Sparkles and Lulu 
Far greater than anything Tragic 
Eeyore, T-T-Tigger and Pooh 
In Dreams that are filled full of Magic 

Angels are made for believin' 
Even if we've never seen them 
They mind us at night, when we shut our eyes tight 
And they help the Dream Fairies to Weave them 

Short Father Daughter poem by Tom Harding| Details | |

To Anya

To Anya

Always wondering what you would look like and who you would be
A piece of me, an extension of my own life
I found it
The meaning of life
Your neck, powerful yet delicate
I never want to let you go 
Your smell, comforting and secure
Your innocent look at me, breaths life back into my day
Eyes that hide excitement and exploration 
Perfect. In every way
Your warmth, your winsomeness
I can't wait for the next smile, the next reliant look
I'm there for you

Short Father Daughter poem by Perry Campanella| Details | |

Your My Dear Friend

We have been together
treasured joy now for many years
we trust each other with our
emotions, with affection, tears,

Any day when you are sick or hurting
I feel your pain - significant other,
when eighter-one needs attention
we help one another...

These mutual friendly feelings
for assistance, approval, support
form our tight bonds,
usually never broken

Sharing visions, time together
we respect each other,
regardless of shortcomings
I know you, "I love you anyway"

My Father's Footsteps

I can see you up ahead of me
I am following 
in your footsteps

no matter how fast I walk
I cannot catch up 

your footsteps are bigger than mine
but they were warm 
and safe to step in

you turn around
and smile encouragingly
then return to your journey

thank you for your footsteps
when I can no longer see you 
they will always be here
pointing me in the right direction

He should've hired a professional

(This is a true story)

His daughter died because he was a cheapskate.
He was tight with his money and she met a horrible fate.
He had a lamp that needed to be rewired.
He did it himself instead of getting a professional that he should've hired.

His daughter was electrocuted when she turned the lamp on.
If he had hired a professional, she wouldn't be gone.
I feel so sorry for that man because he blew it.
If you need something rewired, please get a professional to do it.
