Pillar of the home, backbone and strength

Astride, sitting on mama's needs

Providing, caring for the kids

Always working, caring less for rest.

Little Gifts

Rubbing sleepy eyes,

Children smiling on my bed,

Fathers Day blessings.

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


Short Fathers Day poem by Adam Hapworth| Details |

Fathers Day

We are cool and calm
protecting our families from harm.
Holding little ones close
while each of them grows.
Showing them the way
to treat everyone each day,
with the respect they deserve.
This is what fathers preserve.

Short Fathers Day poem by Warner Baxter| Details |

Everyday is father's day


<b><em><center>You are my Days my glowing bright Daze

You are my Night my shining armored Knight

You are my Son my daily rising Sun

You are my Peace you are the final Piece 

Every Day is Fathers Day</b></em></center>

Short Fathers Day poem by John Joseph P.| Details |


As a boy I looked up and their you stood, Guru-like

larger than life, headstrong Jack-of-all-trades

respected by peers, adored by wife

if only I half the man

once lured by your beliefs

just didn't understand

so I'm different, gone another direction

life on the road in my van

rolling nowhere

Short Fathers Day poem by Dylan Wong| Details |

Life in 4 stanzas

With each life
Comes mouldable clay
Make it, break it
Or do okay

With each day comes
A slice of joy
Simple pleasures
Make our stay 

With each light
Comes a shining beacon
That beckons wisps
To come its way

With each will
There is a way
We'll then do more
Than just okay

Dedicated to my father on Father's Day :)

Short Fathers Day poem by Chuma Okonkwo| Details |


Time ticked fast..
Good bye never came
Heavens gate he stood.

Words unspoken
Dreams not lived
Eternal he sleeps.

Exists in frames
In silence we speak
His memory is my keepsake.

Memory waters brain
As I skim memory library
With unending love........

© Happy Father's day to all fathers living or dead........

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.

Short Fathers Day poem by Abdulhafeez Oyewole| Details |

As in WE

<b>As in WE</b>

<em>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.</em>

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 Fathers Day poem by Raymond Ngomane| Details |

Sins of my father

His sins are heavy/
He stood there silent/ 
Sweat dripping down his armpit this sins r heavy/
Victims see a savior sent from heaven his sins r blurry/
His sweat tastes no salt secrets hidden behind doors glued in bolt they worship his father/
Zip down unzipped to keep his zip down and never spit zip/
He is an experiment a doormat of his Father's zip/
He weeps but nobody speaks/
His father's sins are heavy/

father in heaven

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.

The World as it Spins

       Needless to say the world will not stop spinning. Now let us celebrate and be merry or is that only on the holidays? More holidays are needed. I do not want to live the rest of days angry, hoping, waiting and praying for father's day so I can get my tools. Wait am I a father or just a child. It does not matter because the World refuses to stop spinning. Many people move too fast to understand. See clearly and drive safely. Celebrate, go ahead.

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

Short Fathers Day poem by Jeremy henderson| Details |

todays prayer

for goodness sake. i sleep and wake

and only think of you

i know this life is give and take

but are these visions true?

i put you first to quench my thirst

and longing in my world

but can i please down on my knees

just SEE my baby girl?

i guess that is too much to ask

when her mother is fit

but lord i swear it isnt fair

i cant let go of it.

i hope and pray shes safe and sound

since we can never speak

so answer, lord, this one request

it's fathers day... the peak...

Family Roots

An African man once said to me

A parent is like a mighty tree

To understand who weve become

We must look close at where were from

He smile at me while bending down

And picked a leaf up from the ground

He pointed to the other leaves

And said theyre here because of trees

The leaf was just a simple hint

To help me know his message sent

From parents we are leaf and limb

And we exist because of them

And as you grow into a tree

Remember how you came to be

To a father on fathers day.

To a dad we all adore no matter if rich or poor a gift you have for us all of love and 


To you we show no appretiation yet you must know we love you more than words 

can say no matter night or day.

Thank's for being the dad we all need and for standing by us whenever we grive.

Thanks for keeping up our smiles knowing here give's us the strenth to succeed.

Thank's is a word that can't describe what we want to say but you get the drift we 

love always.

Tracey McDonnell.
