Thanks for all you've done (long)

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.
You're arms are my safe place

You've been my support
Through good time and bad
I feel lucky indeed
To have you as my dad!

Grateful to have you as my dad (long version)

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!

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!

One and only Dad (long version)

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
I wish you the best this Father's Day
My one and only Dad

A child like me (long version)

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

To have such sassy offspring
As a member of your clan

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.

Happy First Fathers Day (new dad)

Happy Father's Day, Daddy,
I have a present for you.
No, it's not in my diaper,
But that needs changing, too!

I have a poem to let you know
How lucky Mommy and I are
Because when it comes to daddies
You really are a star!

Thanks for taking care of me
With cuddles and silly songs.
Thanks for settling me back to sleep,
The nights they can be long

One day I'll be big like you,
And strong and smart and brave.
But while I'm little I want to say
Happy First Father's Day!

Generous Dad (long)

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 (long version)

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 are
To me you'll always be a star
I'll love you more Dad, anyway,
So have a Happy Father's Day!
