Father s Day Poems

June 20, 2010 by USA Post 

After my father gave me his blessing

For the first time, saying, “God bless you”

As I left him to the darkness,

He held me there and kissed my hand.

For the first time saying, “God bless you”

In all the years that I had loved him,

He held me there and kissed my hand,

And the child shivered with delight.

In all the years that I had loved him,

We understood no need to speak.

The child shivered with delight;

The man in silence turned away.

We understood no need to speak

As I left him to the darkness.

The man in silence turned away

After my father gave me his blessing.

A little girl needs Daddy

For many, many things:

Like holding her high off the ground

Where the sunlight sings!

Like being the deep music

That tells her all is right

When she awakens frantic with

The terrors of the night.

Like being the great mountain

That rises in her heart

And shows her how she might get home

When all else falls apart.

Like giving her the love

That is her sea and air,

So diving deep or soaring high

She’ll always find him there.

A little boy needs Daddy

For many, many things:

Like holding him high off the ground

Where the sunlight sings!

Like being the deep music

That tells him all is right

When he awakens frantic with

The terrors of the night.

Like being the great mountain

That rises in his heart

And shows him how he might get home

When all else falls apart.

Like giving him the love

That is his sea and air,

So diving deep or soaring high

He’ll always find him there.

A father and a dad are not the same:

One can be a dad and not a father,

Or one can be a father and not bother

To earn through love the more endearing name.

Some find fatherhood a bit too tame,

Leaving all the details to the mother,

Or dumping the sweet burden on another

Man with just a passing twinge of shame.

You have been our dad so many years

That you’ve become the landscape that is home,

The mountain that we look to from afar.

No matter where we go we’re not alone,

For you remain within to still our fears

And be the word that tells us who we are.

—————————————

Fantasies, like Words, Await What’s Real

Anchored only when attached to things.

The dream of fatherhood, that long-sought dawn,

Has now become the light of early morn,

Exact and merciless in what it brings:

Riches to which one can only kneel.

‘Mid all the truths the package will reveal,

Sensing well the wonder as it sings,

Drawing well the world to which it’s drawn,

A love beyond all words will give you wings,

Yielding joys beyond what you can feel.

————————————–

Even though we’ve lived apart,

I do not love you less.

There’s provision in the heart

For storing tenderness.

There’s a love that like a star

Must reconfigure space

To turn the far-flung wanderers

Towards some predestined grace.

Time matters not, nor pain, nor death,

Nor fate as hard as stone.

This truth needs but a single breath,

And that we now have known.

Ah, Father! What a joy to live

With love at last expressed!

Life has no greater gift to give

Than that with which we’re blessed.

Children need a Daddy

For many, many things:

Like holding them high off the ground

Where the sunlight sings!

Like being the deep music

That tells them all is right

When they awaken frantic with

The terrors of the night.

Like being the great mountain

That rises in their hearts

And shows them how they might get home

When all else falls apart.

Like giving them the love

That is their sea and air,

So diving deep or soaring high

They’ll always find him there.

————————————-

Daddy, I love you

For all that you do.

I’ll kiss you and hug you

‘Cause you love me, too.

You feed me and need me

To teach you to play,

So smile ’cause I love you

On this Father’s Day.

————————————–

Before I was myself you made me, me

With love and patience, discipline and tears,

Then bit by bit stepped back to set me free,

Allowing me to sail upon my sea,

Though well within the headlands of your fears.

Before I was myself you made me, me

With dreams enough of what I was to be

And hopes that would be sculpted by the years,

Then bit by bit stepped back to set me free,

Relinquishing your powers gradually

To let me shape myself among my peers.

Before I was myself you made me, me,

And being good and wise, you gracefully

As dancers when the last sweet cadence nears

Bit by bit stepped back to set me free.

For love inspires learning naturally:

The mind assents to what the heart reveres.

And so it was through love you made me, me

By slowly stepping back to set me free.
