Thanks For All You've Done
Happy Father's Day, Dad.
Thank you for all you have done.
If there was an award for the best father ever
Then I'm sure you would have won.

You've always encouraged me with my art,
And took interest in the crazy things I drew,
You've taught me to never give up on myself,
And you've shown me that any dream can come true.

Thank you for being my personal taxi.
Maybe dad stands for "dad always drives."
You have taken me to all the games and practices,
And managed to never miss one, despite our crazy lives.

Thank you for all your kindness these years,
You've wiped tears and snot from my face,
You've put up with mood swings and heartbreaks,

And other heroes on TV,

They're just fantasy.

You're my real action hero dad,
You're what I want to be,
You are the ultimate superhero,
You're a superhero to me!

Thanks For Believing In Me
I needed to have someone on my side,
Someone who was loving and true,
I had to know that I mattered to someone,
One of those someone's is you.

Because you always believed in me,
I came to believe in me too,
You built my strength and confidence,
To see the tough times through.

Thank you dad for believing in me,
Thank you for taking my side,
Through all the ups and downs of life,
And every bumpy ride.

I'm truly very grateful dad,
And I simply want to say,
I hope you have a well-earned
Happy Father's Day!

Grateful To Have You As My Dad
From the earliest that I remember,
From when I was first aware,
Through all the years come hail or shine,
You've always showed you care.

You not only taught me the everyday things,
Like washing my hands and tying a shoe,
But also to deal with what life brings;
You've shaped my values and world view.

You've been there whenever I needed,
You've helped in many a way,
Whether fixing something broken,
Or knowing just what to say.

I always know I can count on you,
That's a matter of fact.
For that countless other things,
I love you to the moon and back.

Most of all, I'm grateful,
And my heart is truly glad,
That today and every single day,
I have you as my Dad.

How Far We've Come
Dear dad,
It is your special day,
And I'm writing to say
that you did OK.

In fact,
You did so much more,
You've made life exciting
And never a bore.

Whenever I was discouraged,
Or lazy or stressed,
You pepped me up and
Told me to do my best.

So thank you for everything
That you've done,
It's time to celebrate
How far we've come!

Happy father's day!

You've Shared My Joys And Soothed My Cries
Life's adventures, some lessons sorely learned,
Have ups and downs - both lows and highs.
With every goal for which I've yearned,
You've shared my joys and soothed my cries.

You've lived as my shining example to follow.
You're often my source of solutions to heed.
You've given advice as a tough pill to swallow,
But always are present in times of great need.

There's no greater gift than the pride of the father,
There's no greater love than they have for their child.
You count on your father when others won't bother
And moments together are so oft beguiled.

One day is not enough to share
The adulation that I bear
For You.
Happy Fathers' Day!

One And Only Dad
There's days for getting taxes paid,
And days for mowing lawns,
There's days to go to Church and School,
And days to plow the farm.

There's days to fuss with knitting socks,
And days to sleep or play,
But the one that means the most to me,
Is known as Fathers Day.

To be a Father is a calling,
Not all men can claim,
Responding to the family's needs,
Providing love's his aim.

And to that end, you've given me
The best I know you've had,
So I wish you the best this Father's Day,
My one and only Dad

A Child Like Me
Happy father's day, Father,
You deserve an accolade,
Not just because you are my dad,
But because of what you made.

You made an incredible daughter/son,
As I'm sure you are aware,
With looks and brains and modesty
All beyond compare.

Who could ask for more,
Than a golden child like me?
And I'm getting even better,
Just you wait and see.

What a lucky dad you are,
And what a lucky man,
To have such sassy offspring,
As a member of your clan.

So let me add just one last thing,
The message that is key:
You really are most welcome,
For having a child like me.

Dad, You've Been Like A Father To Me
It's Father's Day, I'm sure you knew.
So here's a wish that's just for you,
I know that sometimes I'm a pain,
And almost cause a ruptured brain.
I know that when I'm worse than bad,
It's likely you'll get very mad.
I know that I expect too much,
And think that you're a nice soft touch.
I know sometimes I'll ask for stuff,
And you'll reply, "You've got enough!"
I know when I disturb your sport,
You'll turn the volume up, and give a snort.
I know I make life hard to bear,
And make you wish you were elsewhere.
One day, just like you I'll be,
You've always been like a father to me.

Honored to have you has my Father
Patient, kind, honest, and strong,
You have been there for me all along,
You're all that a kid could ever want,
Staying through my every stunt.

I can't believe I get to call you Dad,
You're the best anyone ever had,
To call you my own is a true honor,
'Cause there could never be a better father!

Happy Father's Day!

Generous Dad
Dear Dad, you are the greatest,
Your every move sublime,
You make the right decisions
Most each and every time.

Your golf swing is terrific,
You work hard every day,
You know just how to love us
And teach us better ways.

I tell all my friends about you
And your generosity,
I tell them that you always
Help me with what I need.

You've proven you're the greatest dad,
And all should sing your song,
So won't you give me 50 bucks,
And prove that I'm not wrong?

When You're Old With Dentures
Dad you've always cared for me,
When I bumped my head or scratched my knee,
You've been amazing, you've been the best,
So I've got something to suggest.

One day I'll take care of you,
When you're old with dentures too.
And if you need a cane to walk,
Then I'll walk slow so we can talk.

You can relax and rest your head,
I'll bring you breakfast in your bed.
And if your hip has pains and aches,
I'll bring you tea and bake you cakes.

I won't care how old you ,
To me you'll always be a star,
I'll love you more Dad, anyway,
So have a Happy Father's Day!
