18 Heartwarming Father’s Day Poems

“Walk a little slower, Daddy,”
said the little twins so small.
We’re following in your footsteps,
and we don’t want to fall.

Sometimes your steps are very fast,
sometimes they’re hard to view;
so walk a little slower Daddy,
for you are leading two.

Someday when we’re all grown up,
You’re what we want to be,
We will have our own children,
Following our footsteps, you see.

And we would want to lead just right,
and know that we were true;
So walk a little slower Daddy,
for we must follow you.

My daddy is so special,
He’s brave and strong and smart.
That is why I love him so
With all my little heart!

Hello Daddy, I’ve waited for you,
come gently hold my hand.
Teach me things I need to know
and help me understand.

The world is new and big and bright,
so many things to see.
I need someone to guide me through
and always support me.

These moments pass us quickly by,
let’s cherish every one.
The days, the weeks, the months will fly,
it’s only just begun.

And as I grow up big and strong
remember this is true –
I’ll always be your little girl.
Dear Daddy, I love you.

Ten little fingers
And ten tiny toes

Two innocent eyes
And one button nose

Two cute dimpled hands
To play peek-a-boo

Two soft chubby feet
To toddle toward you

Two hands to explore
A world filled with fun

Two feet that so soon
Will walk, skip and run

These precious prints
Will grow all too fast

But when printed here
They will always last

Fathers are wonderful people
Too little understood,
And we do not sing their praises
As often as we should…
But fathers are just wonderful
In a million different ways,
And they merit loving compliments
And accolade of praise,
For the only reason Dad aspires
To fortune and success
Is to make the family proud of him
And to bring them happiness…
And like our Heavenly Father,
He’s a guardian and a guide,
Someone that we can count on
To be always on our side.

I love to wear my Daddy’s shoes
though my feet are small,
When they are in my Daddy’s shoes,
I feel 10 feet tall.
Someday I’ll grow up to fill them,
and I only hope to be,
as fine a man
and great a Dad
as my Daddy
is to me.

A sturdy, stead hand to hold to
In times of strife and stress
A true friend we can turn to
When times are good or bad
One of our greatest gifts and blessings,
The man that we call Dad.

There are little eyes upon you
and they’re watching night and day.
There are little ears that quickly
take in every word you say.
There are little hands all eager
to do anything you do;
and a little boy who’s dreaming
of the day he’ll be like you.

You’re the little fellow’s idol;
you’re the wisest of the wise.
In his little mind about you
no suspicions ever rise.
He believes in you devoutly,
holds all you say and do;
he will say and do, in your way
when he’s grown up just like you.

There’s a wide-eyed little fellow,
who believes you’re always right;
and his eyes are always opened,
and he watches day and night.
You are setting an example
every day in all you do;
for the little boy who’s waiting
to grow up just like you.

Daddy, take my hand in yours and you will plainly see
How very much I need you now to love and care for me.
As my little hand grows, I will need you even more.
Everything I do in life, I have never done before.
Teach me to be kind and loving, sharing, and forgiving.
Show me through your acts of love the pure joy of living.
The years will pass by quickly and one day I will be grown,
I will pass what you have taught me onto children of my own.
Hold me always in your thoughts and remember when we are apart,
The special love between a child and daddy’s heart.

Daddy, it’s
my greatest wish
That my little hands
will catch big fish
When I’ll be there
fishing with you
I know you’ll teach
me what to do
You’ll show me
how to bait my hook
When we fish
the lakes and brook
And how to find
the fishing hole
The way to cast
my fishing pole
Daddy, I know
that you’re dreaming too
Of the special times
I will spend with you!

My little eyes are watching,
My ears are listening too.
They take in everything
That you say and do.

My little hands are eager
To do the things you do.
I’m hoping and I’m dreaming
I’ll grow up just like you.

I am just a little guy
Who knows that you are wise
You’ll teach me what I need
For someone just my size

I’m a bright eyed little fellow
Who is watching what you do
And I’m waiting for the day
I’ll be grown up just like you

Walk alongside me, Daddy
and hold my little hand.
I have so many things to learn
that I don’t yet understand.

Teach me things to keep me safe
from dangers every day.
Show me how to do my best
at home, at school, at play.

Every child needs a gentle hand
to guide them as they grow.
So walk alongside me, Daddy.
We have a long way to go.

To my Dad,

Thank you for teaching me to catch and throw.

The time we spend playing together means more than you know.

To remember these days I made you this ball.

So you never forget when my hand was this small.

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

Sometimes your steps are very fast,
Sometimes they’re hard to see,
So walk a little slower, Daddy,
For you are leading me.

Someday when I am all grown up,
You’re what I want to be,
Then I will have a little child
Who will want to follow me.

And I would want to lead just right,
And know that I was true,
So walk a little slower, Daddy,
For I must follow you.”

I sure hope this Father’s Day
Is your very best by far,

Extra nice and extra fun
The way you always are.

Times are fun when you’re around,
No nicer dad could ever be found!

You’re the greatest kind of dad
Any kid has ever had…

I just want to let you know
You mean the world to me
Only a heart as dear as yours
Would give so unselfishly

The many things you’ve done
All the times that you were there
Help me know deep down inside
How much you really care

Even though I might not say
I appreciate all you do
Richly blessed is how I feel
Having a father just like you

A dad is someone who
wants to catch you before you fall
but instead picks you up,
brushes you off,
and lets you try again.

A dad is someone who
wants to keep you from making mistakes
but instead lets you find your own way,
even though his heart breaks in silence
when you get hurt.

A dad is someone who
holds you when you cry,
scolds you when you break the rules,
shines with pride when you succeed,
and has faith in you even when you fail…

He doesn’t stand out in a crowd,
just an average, regular guy,
But to me he’s a king and stands
near ten feet high.
He loves and understands me,
whether I am good or bad.
They’ll make the man that I will be,
the hours I spend with Dad.
