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,
Father’s 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

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.

Everyday is father's day


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 Father’s Day

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 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, a wandering poet afoot
size twelve adrift

Fathers Day

Every June it happens,
Big celebration that never ends.
This is their sunrise-to-sunset,
Should us to commemorate.

An attendant at night,
Attentive parent at light,
Presence never leave us,
In every challenges we have.

Greatest gift of all,
A huge thanks for all,
You're our and my loving father,
And I must say I love you.

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

As in WE

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.

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”

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

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 we’ve become
We must look close at where we’re from

He smile at me while bending down
And picked a leaf up from the ground
He pointed to the other leaves
And said “they’re 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.
