God took the strength of a mountain
The majesty of a tree
The warmth of a summer sun
The calm of a quiet sea
The generous soul of nature
The comforting arm of night
The power of the eagles flight
The joy of a morning spring
The faith of a mustard seed
The patience of eternity
The depth of a family need
Then God combined these qualities
And then there was nothing more to add
He knew his masterpiece was complete
And so he called it…Dad.


I never had a chance to choose the man to be my Dad –
But I sure thank my lucky stars for the taste my Mother had.


Fathers are men who give daughters away to other men
who aren’t nearly good enough…
so they can have grandchildren who are smarter than anybody’s.


A dad is a person
Who’s loving and kind,
And often he knows
What you have on your mind.
He’s someone who listens,
Suggest and defends…
A dad can be one
Of your very best friends!
He’s proud of your triumphs,
But when things go wrong,
A dad can be patient
And helpful and strong.
In all that you do
A dad’s love plays a part –
There’s always a place for him
Deep in your heart –
And each year that passes,
You’re even more glad,
More grateful and proud
Just to call him your dad!


Walk a little slower daddy
said a little child so small,
I’m following your footsteps
and I don’t want to fall.

Sometimes your steps are very fast
sometimes they are hard to see,
so walk a little slower daddy,
For you are leading me.

Someday when I’m all grown up
you are what I want to be,
then I will have a little child
who will want to follow me.

I would want to lead just right
and know that I was true,
so walk a little slower daddy,
For I must follow you!


He’s rough and lacks in etiquette,
Society would say.
He has no classy attributes,
To help him on his way.

He’s not a fancy dresser,
And he’s not so trimmed and neat.
With simple clothes and simple shoes,
He wears upon his feet.

He doesn’t belong to a club,
Or drive a shiny car.
And when he takes vacations,
He does not go very far.

He doesn’t dine on fine cuisine,
To him fast food’s a treat.
And he may use a plastic fork,
When it is time to eat.

He has a modest little house,
But has all that he needs.
He keeps his lawn cut nice and short,
He even trims his weeds.

He works long hours at his job,
To make an average pay.
And even if he’s sick of tired,
He goes to work each day.

His job is just a factory job,
His pay just makes ends meet,
But, a few good friends and family,
Make his life complete.

He’s not well versed in poetry,
Theatre or the arts.
And wisdom is not something,
That he constantly imparts.

He loves the simple things in life,
For riches doesn’t thirst.
He knows what is important,
And his family is put first.

The wealth that God has given him,
To treasure in his life.
A loving son and daughter,
And a very special wife.

He never has much money,
And his life is not a show.
But he is still the richest man,
That I will ever know.

To others he’s a simple man
And fame he’s never had.
But he’s the greatest man I know,
He also is my Dad.


I’m sure, like me, you often feel
When all is said and done
The job of raising kids today
Is not an easy one.

I’m glad you’re there beside me
To counsel and advise
And help me find the answer
To their never ending “whys?”

I’d be lost without your shoulders
So much broader than my own
To lean upon when problems
Seem too big to solve alone.

As long as we’re together
We can weather storm and strife
And take in stride the ups and downs
That go with family life.

And someday when our little ones
Are old enough to stand
Straight and tall without the need
Of any helping hand.

We won’t recall how hard it was
We’ll just be proud and glad
We happened to be chosen
For the roles of Mum and Dad!
