Rhymes and Verses for Dad

What comes to mind when you hear the word, “Dad”? Is it someone you can depend on to be there for you through thick and thin, no matter what happens? If you are blessed to have this kind of a father, wouldn’t you love to help him understand just how great of an influence he has truly had in your life? What better time to let your father know how eternally grateful you are for him than on his birthday?

Most of the time when birthdays roll around we head over to the local card shop and browse through the generic birthday cards. It can get pretty overwhelming to try and find a card that perfectly describes the person you want to wish a happy birthday. And when this person is your one-of-a-kind, amazing father, the task becomes even more daunting. Rather than relying on someone who has never even met your dad, why not write your own, personalized, heart-felt message to your dad on his birthday? He will be blown away by your thoughtfulness. Writing your own birthday wishes for your dad can be easier than you think by following these simple steps.

First, think about what you love most about your dad. What qualities set him apart and make him the man that you so admire? Is he faithful, loyal, and dependable? Does he truly care about others more than about himself? Is he a people magnet? Or maybe he displays that quiet, gentle strength that has a calming effect on those around him. No one knows your dad quite like you do. Whatever positive qualities you can think of, write them down in detail.

Next, you can look at your list of your father’s positive character qualities and describe how those qualities have had a profound impact on your life. Since you knew dad was dependable, did it give you a confident, happy childhood? Since he showed that he cared more about you than about himself did he inspire you to pass that same selfless attitude down in your own parenting relationship with your children? Think about how much different your life would be without the positive influence of your father. Now, let him know how grateful you are that he always has been such an important part of your life.

Lastly, remind your father of some of the special memories that you have of him throughout the years. Did your dad spend hours teaching you how to play your favorite sport? Did he come to your ball games, cheer you on when you won, and cheer you up when you lost? Did he take you out for ice cream? Did he give you pointers when you went out on your first date? Did he walk you down the aisle? What happy times do you remember sharing with this incredible man?

Every good dad longs to be his little boy or little girl’s hero. What better time than on his birthday for you to remind him just exactly how much you still look up to him? When you take the time to write him a personalized, unique birthday message, your dad will have a keepsake from your heart to his that he will cherish for a lifetime.

On your birthday may you find the joy and peace that you deserve.

You taught me how to navigate this world of strife and scorn.
You’ve always shown such integrity in all you do and say,
So I just want to wish you now a happy, blessed birthday.

Dad, I want you to know how much I admire your integrity
The way you back your words with actions means so much to me.
So I want to take a moment to thank you for all that you are,
And to wish that this birthday will be your very best by far.

Happy Birthday to dad, you’ve inspired us all
Your words always kind, generosity never small
Teaching valuable instruction until we reach full bloom
If we’re smart the advice we will always consume

From infancy you became the most resourceful guide
Your constant adoration is always implied
Your hard as nails approach helped us become strong
It’s something I’ll carry my entire lifelong

Your amazing laugh when I tried to tell a joke
Is something my harshest critics could never revoke
Your trust in your instincts was always so clear
That it left little doubt you were ever insincere

You’ve stood tall at times when I was so scared
You’ve been my best friend even when I have erred
You’re all that matters and I do hope today
That you’ll enjoy this fabulous birthday

You’ve been a consistent and truthful man
And I realize you’ve done every single thing that you can
To raise a great family putting others always first
Your kindness and unselfishness could never be reversed

Dad I’ve always wanted to just let you know
Through the years, I appreciate you so
You’re a gift in my life I need to commend
Something I didn’t deserve nor can comprehend

You’re the steady shoulder that I often desired
You’ve listened to me rant without ever getting tired
Yet you’ve pulled off a wonderful life of your own
As you reach this incredible birthday milestone

Your charm isn’t something that the average Joe has
It’s obvious to me that you’ve developed your pizazz
From just being naturally and wonderfully kind
In the Dad ‘Hall of Fame’ you should be enshrined

What a wonderful experience growing up with a pop
Who would turn down golf to keep the house tip top
You’ve sacrificed so much to be the dad you are
To work on the roof or to try to fix my car

You’ve spent so many hours working and getting paid
Yet when you come home you never got outplayed
Here’s to a dad who burnt the candle every single day
At both ends just to ensure that we turned out okay

If they awarded medals to the dads who do the best
Years it would take me just to tell the qualities you possess
From handsome to loving to a truly helpful soul
To the one who lends a helping ear always to console

You raise people up with encouragement and support
You’d never allow me to grow up a worrywart
Strength is an attribute that suits you so well
And I’m indebted to you for more than I could ever tell

Happy Birthday Dad I hope you realize
That you’ll always be my present and my birthday prize
Lucky I am to have a father so unique
I look forward to every single second that we speak

You’re one in a million and I hope you see
Fathers can be difficult but you’ve never seemed to be
Not perfect but so close enough in my biased eyes
My unconditional love I hope you always realize
