With these poems, we aim to along with our readers, express our love and gratitude to the father figure in our lives that we celebrate today.

Poem 1:

Silent, Strong Dad

Written by Karen K. Boyer

He never looks for praises.

He’s never one to boast.

He just goes on quietly working

For those he loves the most.

His dreams are seldom spoken.

His wants are very few,

And most of the time his worries

Will go unspoken, too.

He’s there…a firm foundation

Through all our storms of life,

A sturdy hand to hold onto

In times of stress and strife.

A true friend we can turn to

When times are good or bad.

One of our greatest blessings,

The man that we call Dad.


Poem 2:

My Dad
Written by Vicky Frye

If I could write a story,

It would be the greatest ever told.

I’d write about my daddy,

For he had a heart of gold.

My dad, he was no hero

Known around this world.

He was everything to me,

For I was his baby girl.

I’d write about the lessons

He taught me right from wrong.

He instilled in me the values

That one day I’d be strong.

He taught me to face my fears,

Take each day as it comes,

For there are things that we can’t change

He would say what’s done is done.

He would say hold your head up high,

Carry yourself with pride.

Thanks to him, I am somebody,

I will never run and hide.

If I could write a story,

It would be the greatest ever told.

I’d write about my daddy,

For he had a heart of gold.


Poem 3:

A True Hero

Written by Jullie Mills

This poem was inspired by a true gentleman hero, whom I was very privileged to know as my father-in-law. He passed away at the age of ninety-two in March 2012. Despite having seen the atrocities of war, he had a fondness for the good in all people and would never condemn people for their actions. He worked hard for most of his life, was active and always had a smile.

What makes a man a hero?

I’ve often thought this through.

It’s someone who is macho?

It’s someone who is true?

No, that is not a hero.

He’s just a simple man.

Always there when things go wrong

And who does the best he can.

He lends a strong shoulder

To ease the flow of tears

He holds high the lantern

To drive away your fears.

His smile was just enough

To give encouragement

His frown more than adequate

To make one soon relent.

When some had need of guidance

His ears he’d freely lend

Advice came in abundance

You chose, not him could you offend.

He had no need of medals

Or glory this is true

That’s why, dear Grandpa

Our hero has to be you.
