Short Rhymes

1) The most difficult thing to do

Is to not give a hug to you

The easiest thing to do

Is to smile and think about you

The most difficult thing to do

Is to be away from you

The easiest thing to do

Is to endlessly love you

Love you, Dad

2) Crushes and boyfriends

Will come and go

But dad you will always be

Your daughter's number one hero

I love you

3) Where did you learn to work so hard

Is what my boss asked me as he came my way

I knew my answer, even though he caught me off guard

Work hard son, is what my father told me back in the day

This was my reply to my boss

He had a warm smile on his face

And all his arrogance went for a toss

You have a good dad, he said with grace

I smiled back and said nothing

This was something I already knew

Your teachings have put me on the path of winning

Dear Dad, I love you

4) Do even you know how adorable you are

I miss you when you and I are far

Staying away from our house

Makes me grumble and grouse

But since I am now living alone

My love for you, I frequently want to be known

I miss you and mom

Your memories are like a soothing balm

I love you, Dad

5) All this time you tried to make me

A successful young man with many means

But all your tries have been fruitless, you see

I was born to be successful, because I had your genes

Don't call me the son

You are glad you had

I would have been no one

If it weren't for you, Dad

I love you

6) I always cursed you and mom

For being so predictable

But that was a long time back

When I was little

Now I know and I have realized

That you were predictable for a reason

It wasn't because you liked being that way

But you always wanted to be there for your son

I love you, Dad

7) My dad's advice

Is like a magical device

On which you can push one button

To drive away all worries uncertain

My dad's hug is like a magical balm

That makes life smooth and calm

It gives you a sense of safety

Not just for a while, but for eternity

I love you, Dad

8) I can't remember the last time

That I said I love you

To my dear dad

So this message was highly due

But let me make it very clear

That whether I say it or not

I have and will always love you

Not just a little, but lots and lots

I love you, Dad

9) When I was a child

I was a fool to think that you were not fair

Let me make it up to you

By giving you a big hug like a bear

I love you, Daddy

10) When I was young

I thought that you were not cool

Now that I have grown up

I have realized that you were cooler than cool

All that I want to say now

Is that I was a complete fool

And there is no other dad in the world

Who can be like you, Mr. cool

I love you, √

A good dad never teaches his son life's big lessons. He simply allows his son to learn from his own actions.

11) When I was small and immature

I may have taken you for granted

When I was a teenager and moody

Sometimes from my room, you were shunted

When I was about to become an adult

I never thought that you knew what I wanted

But now that I have finally crossed twenty one

I realize that my behavior was completely unwarranted

I love you, my dear father

12) Only a father like you

Can be strong, yet so gentle

Only a father like you

Can be strict, yet so lenient

Only a father like you

Can be focused, yet so carefree

Only a father like you

Can be angry, yet so calm

We love you, Dad

13) My dad is like a large mountain

Who acts like a safety curtain

Who shields me from trouble and pain

Not once, not twice, but again and again

I love you

14) Your overpowering presence in my life was such

That even though I wasn't scared of my teachers much

I was always afraid that the mistakes I made

I hoped never to hurt you, is what I prayed

Your loving smile to me was paramount

Every hug you gave me added happiness to my life's account

I love you, Dad

15) I love my dad because...

My dad taught me to walk

He also taught me to talk

My dad taught me to speak

He also taught me never to be weak

My dad taught me to be strong

He also taught me never to be wrong

My dad taught me to be honest

He also taught me to be my best

That's why I love my dad

16) No matter how old you grow

You will still be the hero

Who carried me on his shoulders

And who showed me life's wonders

You are the person, I will forever look up to

Dear Dad, I love you

17) Daddy said never be greedy

Daddy said always be strong in tragedy

Daddy said never be seedy

Daddy said always remain steady

Daddy said never be shady

Daddy said always be a respectful lady

I love you, Daddy

18) Even though I am small I understand

That being a father can be a thankless role

Dads like you should be celebrated because

Fatherly figures like you are bigger than rock and roll

Love you, Dad

19) Thanks for teaching me to never let go

Of opportunity and responsibility

Thanks for teaching me to always let go

Of falsity and animosity

I love you, Dad

20) It still makes me wonder

What you saw in me at an age so tender

To push me to do my best

As you worked tirelessly without any rest

Just the fact that you believed in me

Is what set me free

Making me what I am today

A big thank you is the least I can say

I love you, Dad
