  2. A Little Girl Needs Daddy

    by Anonymous

    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.

  3. What Makes a Dad

    by Anonymous

    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 wisdom of the ages,
    The power of the eagle's flight,
    The joy of a morning in spring,
    The faith of a mustard seed,
    The patience of eternity,
    The depth of a family need,
    Then God combined these qualities,
    When there was nothing more to add,
    He knew His masterpiece was complete,
    And so, He called it ... Dad

  4. My Dad

    by Anonymous

    When I was just a tiny kid,
    Do you remember when,
    The time you kissed my bruises,
    Or cleaned by soiled chin?

    You scrambled for the balls I hit,
    (Short-winded more than not,)
    Yet, every time we'd play a game,
    You praised the "outs" I caught.

    It seems like only yesterday,
    You wiped away my tears,
    And late at night I called your name,
    To chase away my fears.

    Though time has changed your handsome grip,
    Your hair is snowy white,
    You gait's a little slower now,
    Thick glasses help your sight.

    Oh, do I thirst for years gone by,
    To be that growing lad,
    Re-living all of the memories,
    Of growing with my dad.

  5. Daddy, I Love You

    by Nicholas Gordon

    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.

  6. Fathers Can Be Solitary Mountains

    by Nicholas Gordon

    Fathers can be solitary mountains,
    All their love rock-like, steep, and strong.
    Though warm and caring, somehow they belong
    Halfway home to mothers' bubbling fountains.
    Each of us needs love that knows no quarter,
    Reminding us of bonds that cross a border,
    Strengthening our sense of right and wrong.

  7. Grandfathers Are Fathers Who Are Grand

    by Nicholas Gordon

    Grandfathers are fathers who are grand,
    Restoring the sense that our most precious things
    Are those that do not change much over time.
    No love of childhood is more sublime,
    Demanding little, giving on demand,
    Far more inclined than most to grant the wings
    Allowing us to reach enchanted lands.
    Though grandfathers must serve as second fathers,
    Helping out with young and restless hearts,
    Each has all the patience wisdom brings,
    Remembering our passions more than others,
    Soothing us with old and well-honed arts.

  8. To My Dad on His Day

    by Nicholas Gordon

    To my dad on his day,
    Of whom I am a living will:
    May your happiness fulfill
    Your goodness, as is just and right.
    Deeds are seeds upon the night
    As wind and wonder have their way,
    Delivering the destined light.
