Father’s Day Song: A Poem for Fathers
(Send as an Inspirational Father’s Day eCard!)
Cherished Father, kind yet strong,
For you, Daddy, I dedicate this song.
Beloved and treasured, respected and admired,
A wealth of wisdom you have acquired.
Comfort and insight you readily share
With a compassion beyond compare.
You guide and direct out of love for me;
Always my best you desire to see.
When the way is rocky, when the path unclear,
Your soothing words to my heart are dear.
This Father’s Day I celebrate who you are,
Close to my heart, whether near or far.
For you are my Daddy, the Father I love,
Surely a blessing bestowed from Above.
My Heavenly Father I thank for you;
I praise Him for loving things you do.
Surely He smiles in the way you guide,
Surely He delights that you are by side.
Surely His love dwells in your heart,
Surely from Him you will never part.
So on this Day of Fathers of you I sing,
I celebrate the love to my life you bring.
Daddy, how much I love you;
How thankful I am for your love true.
What place is safer than your arms strong?
When the winds do blow, this is where I belong.
Yes, my cherished Father, kind yet strong,
On this Father’s Day I sing your song.
