Can We Every Give Back Enough
Poet: Julie Hebert, © 2018


What can we give,
To an awesome, fabulous Dad.
On a day like today,
When we are feeling very glad.

How can we repay,
A loving and giving Dad.
Who is always there for us,
Even when he is mad.

Where should we take,
Such an amazing Dad.
Who takes us everywhere.
And cheers us up when we are sad.

And to share words of love,
When should we tell or say?
Every chance we get of course,
But especially on Fathers Day!



Best Dad

Poet: Julie Hebert, © 2018


I have a very special Dad
One which I would never trade.
He is kind and considerate too
He makes me laugh when I am blue.

He has had his share of ups and downs
But he determined he is and holds his ground.
His family is important to him
And when he is with them he has a grin.

He loves us just the way we are
He is the best Dad by far!




The most important influence in my childhood was my father.  DeForest Kelley

Father Quotes




What Is A Father
Poet: Julie Hebert, © 2018


Who constitutes a father,
At what task makes it so?
Does it happen slowly,
Or should we all just know?

Is a father there from birth,
Or can they join at a later date?
Do they have to be related,
So many questions to debate.

Maybe there is a number,
Of diapers one has to change.
Can they be your favourite person,
Or must they be a little strange?

I think a father is someone,
Who loves unconditionally,
There is no perfect formula,
To who a father can be.


There is no perfect formula, To who a father can be.
Fathers Day Quotes


A Father We Have In You
Poet: Julie Hebert, © 2017


A father a dad,
Sometimes happy or mad.
Can be playful and fun,
Mostly happy and glad.

Can give tickles or hugs,
Or give us a stern talking to.
Love everlasting,
No matter what we do.

He can be funny at times,
And serious when stern.
He is so smart and wise,
So many things from him we learn.

We are thankful for our father,
In all circumstances too.
We couldn't ask for a better father,
As the one we have in you!


We couldn't ask for a better father, As the one we have in you!
Dad Quotes


My Father
Poet: Julie Hebert, © 2017


What would I do without my father,
Who does so much for me?
I'd probably end up living in,
A house infested by bee’s.

I'd have mice running free,
All through my house.
I may even have decided,
Not to marry my spouse!

I wouldn't know how to hammer,
Probably would never pick one up.
I would never have learned to make,
Coffee then serve it in a cup.

So many different things,
I have learned from him.
My life would be so different,
Oh it would be so grim!


What would I do without my father, Who does so much for me?
Appreciation Poems


To A Step-Father Like You
Poet: Julie Hebert, © 2017


First I must say how sorry I am,
That you ended up, raising me.
But second I say that I'm happy to state,
You ended up being someone like thee.

You fought and you held out for happier times,
And it took a little longer, than you had first thought.
But all that waiting and hoping for those children to accept you,
Has allowed you to finally get what you sought.

You're apart of our family, we hope you are happy,
It was tough, but you pulled through.
You've been a great father, never a bother,
We can only hope you think so too!

So thank you for being someone so beaming,
Not occasionally but every single day!
At first it annoyed us, but now we enjoy, thus,
Wanting to yell out hip, hip, hooray!


We don't get to choose who our Fathers will be. But Dad let me tell you if I could choose you would be my Number 1 choice!
We don't get to choose who our Fathers will be. But Dad let me tell you if I could choose you would be my Number 1 choice!
Fathers Day Wishes


Always There
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, © 2018


It doesn't matter whether I lose or win
You are always there through thick and thin.
And no matter the weather, shine or rain
You always encouraged me in joy or pain.

And it didn't matter through my smiles and tears
You always taught me not to have those fears.
You encouraged all my hopes and dreams
You kept me balanced and not extreme.

No matter how, what, or where
Father, thanks for always being there.


You encouraged all my hopes and dreams
Words of Encouragement


Four Simple Words
Poet: Herbert Parker


His little arms crept 'round my neck,
And then I heard him say,
Four simple words I can't forget,
Four words that made me pray.

They turned a mirror on my soul,
On secrets no one knew,
They startled me, I hear them yet,
He said, "I'll be like you!"


Every father should remember that one day his son will follow his example rather than his advise. Charles F. Kettering

"Every father should remember that

Father and Son Quotes




I Understand Now
Poet: Edgar A. Guest


Used to wonder just why Father,
Never had much time to play;
Used to wonder why he'd rather
Work each minute of the day.

Boys are blind to much that's going
On about them every day,
And I had no way of knowing
What became of Father's pay.

All I knew was when I needed
shoes I got 'em on the spot;
Everything for which I pleaded,
Somehow Father always got.

Wondered season after season
Why he never took a rest,
And that I might be the reason
That I never even guessed.

Rest has come - his task is ended,
Calm is written on his brow,
Father's life was big and splendid,
And I understand it now.


The Best Grandfather
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, © 2017


You raised us well Dad
Values you gave us
You always loved us even the bad
You never made a big fuss.

And now to my children you are
The best Grandfather that can be
A special man to them by far
You are better with them than me.

So thank you for being that special man
Whom I love so dearly
And to my children they are your fans
We can see your love so clearly.
