Valentines Day Poems for Dads


I sit and look back to how far I can remember,

And you are always there next to me.

Each and everyday you were helping me grow up,

And making me be the best that I can be.

Your love was forever strong,

Your cuddles forever tight.

Everyday since I was born,

Your love was always in sight.

 I will always be your Baby Girl,

And you will always be my Dad.

I know I will always be the luckiest,

To have the best Dad any girl could have had.

 My Daddy I love you with all my heart,

Much more than I ever say.

You are my world, my everything,

Each and Every day

…. Ranja kujala


My heart has made its mind up

And I’m afraid it’s you

Whatever you’ve got lined up,

My heart has made its mind up

And if you can’t be signed up

This year, next year will do.

My heart has made its mind up

And I am afraid it’s you

…. Wendy Cope


A charm invests a face

Imperfectly beheld.

The lady dare not lift her veil

For fear it be dispelled.

But peers beyond her mesh,

And wishes, and denies,

Lest interview annul a want

That image satisfies

…. Emily Dickinson


 I’m thinking of you on Valentine’s Day;

I love and admire you, Dad.

I’ll always remember and cherish a lot

The good times that we had.

You were the very first man in my life,

You showed me how good men should be.

I’m grateful that you’re my father, Dad,

So Happy Valentine’s Day, from me

…. Joanna Fuchs


When I am born, you are here

In your eye, I see a tear

Time flies and already I’m two

“Look, daddy, I can tie my shoe!”

Before you know it, I’m five

Every day, you thank God I’m alive

Pretty soon, I turn eight

You tell me I’m never allowed to date

 I’m already twelve in my preteen years

Which means you’ll help me with all my new fears

Now fourteen with my permit to drive

Waiting to hit the big one-five

 Too early comes sixteen, with my license now

It went by too fast, you just ask how

 You want to meet my boyfriend when I’m eighteen

I pray to god that you’re not too mean

The same guy two years later asks for my hand

I’m relieved when you say, that’s just grand

 About a year later, you walk me down the aisle

Through all the tears, you bare a smile

Three years later, you’re gonna be a grandfather

You show love and pride for your new granddaughter

 Another year down the road

Mom dies, oh the many tears that flowed

You’re not doing so well without her

Less than a year later, you forgot all about her

 Alzheimer’s sets in and it scares me so

Not long after, you decide to go

Now I’m regretting not saying goodbye

Every time I think about it, I start to cry

 The cycle has begun again

It has started over with little Megan

The other day, she turned two

And said, “Look, daddy, I can tie my shoe!”
