Birthday Poems for your Dad

  • Some gloat over gems
    Others boast of armadas, armies, and trophies
    But I’m proud of a modest dad

    Even when it comes at a loss to him
    Such a father is nothing short of a priceless work of art
    Happy birthday to you, dad


  • I’m son/daughter to a great and wise man
    Who considers good dreams and wisdom as things to be grasped
    And provides many opportunities for doing so
    I’m where I am because of his guidance, vision, and encouragement
    I’m thankful and humble to call him my father
