    It would be the greatest ever told.

    Known around this world.
    He was everything to me,
    For I was his baby girl.
    I’d write about the lessons.
    He taught me right from wrong.
    He instilled in me the values
    That one day I’d be strong.

    Take each day as it comes,
    For there are things that we can’t change.
    He would say what’s done is done.

    From the others I’ve seen.
    You mean so much to me.
    With deep appreciation for all you have done.
    You, Dad,
    Are my number one.
    With all my love, Your Daughter, Your Friend
  • 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 giving her the love
    That is her sea and air,
    So diving deep or soaring high
    She’ll always find him there.

    Is always my earthly dad.

    Of the Father divine
    Reflecting the nature of God,
    For his love and care
    And the faith he shared
    Pointed me to my Father above.
  • Dad, if all the fathers
    Had lined up one by one,
    And God told me to pick,
    I’d still choose to be your son.
    I’m proud to have a father
    Who listens and understands,
    Who teaches me and sets fair rules
    Without unfair demands
    Dad you are my hero,
    My role model in all I do.
    So dad, if I could pick again,
    You know I’d still pick you!

    Who have gathered here today,
    To praise your holy name,
    For giving them strength and courage
    To make it along life’s way.

    Who have loved us so well,
    Clothed us, fed us, educated us,

    To tell them how we love them,
    To tell them how much we care,
    To tell them we are ever so grateful,
    Because they were always there.

    He leads our household well;
    With instruction from the Bible,
    Right behavior he’ll compel.
    Yet he steers us with compassion;
    His gentle love is true;
    He conforms to our Lord Jesus,
    So we know just what to do.
    He teaches us with purpose,
    Guides us in all Godly ways,
    So we will take the right path,
    And serve our Lord with praise.
    I’m glad you’re a Christian, Dad;
    You help me see things clearly.
    I’ll always look up to you,
    And love you very dearly.

    And he’ll be with you to the end,
    When you meet again in Heaven,
    And your broken heart will finally mend.

  • It’s Father’s Day, I’m sure you knew.
    So here’s a wish that’s just for you
    I know that sometimes I’m a pain,
    And almost cause a ruptured brain.
    I know that when I’m worse than bad,
    It’s likely you’ll get very mad.
    I know that I expect too much,
    And think that you’re a nice soft touch.
    I know sometimes I’ll ask for stuff
    And you’ll reply, “You’ve got enough!”
    I know when I disturb your sport
    You’ll turn the volume up, and give a snort.
    I know I make life hard to bear
    And make you wish you were elsewhere.
    One day, just like you I’ll be,
    You’ve always been like a father to me.
  • I’m just sitting here thinking about what you mean to me,
    Remembering all the things you’ve done for me,
    You’ve been there for me from the start,
    Knowing what to say to keep me from falling apart,
    Taking everything that comes your way good or bad,
    Even though you’re not my father you’ll always be my dad.
  • To me you are a
    Priceless commodity
    A wealth of wisdom
    You’ve been to me
    If I have thoughts
    I need to share
    Always I know
    That you will care
    I always enjoy the things
    We do together
    When done with you
    They’re always better
    You always have
    An open mind
    A better stepdad
    I could never find.
  • I’m so lucky to have
    A stepfather like you
    Without you in my life
    I don’t know what I’d do
    When I need you
    You’re there for me
    A better stepfather
    You couldn’t be
    The bond we share
    Will always be strong
    In my eyes
    You can do no wrong.
