Father’s day poem to my husband

A poem to John on Father's Day

A poem to John on Father's Day

He’s so many things to your children – coach, lifesaver, homework helper, all-round fan and supporter.

In honor of Father’s Day, I wrote this poem for my husband, John, and for all fathers who love their children and give the world its greatest gift … the future.

Please feel free to put my poem to the paper of your choice for a Father’s Day or Birthday card for him.

In return, please leave a comment below and, if you get a chance to read either of my novels, I would be honored. You can find them on amazon.com, at your local library and occasionally on eBay.  –Janet

by Janet Lane

Being a dad is more than a day
More than a thank-you or annual display
Your laughter and caring, adventure and humor
So giving, befitting the honor of father

I couldn’t have picked a better man
To travel through life with our crazy clan
You’re my husband, my hero, and may I suggest
A wonderful father — the best of the best!

    This is the perfect peom Janet, thank you! All the other ones that I came across from a wife/partner perspective, were way too soppy, or fairytale-like.

    Thank you so much. This year I wanted to make a card for my special man and am terrible at verse. He is 67, a most loved father of 3, and is our rock. Your poem is absolutely perfect – thank you so much for the gift!!

    • redplume

      Hi, Deb, and thanks for the heartfelt message. He sounds like a treasure, and thank you for calling my poem a gift. It is, but I hadn’t thought of it that way. Enjoy your special day with him!

Yours is wonderful! Actually very befitting of my husband. Thanks for giving permission to use it! I think he will love it!
