1) On my 1st birthday

You gave me a toy car

On my 6th birthday

You taught me how to ride my bike far

On my 12th birthday

You gave me a Nintendo

On my 15th birthday

You taught me relationship stuff that I didn't know

On my 18th birthday

You told me I was your grown up son

On my 21st birthday

You taught me how to have fun

All the way to my rebellious youth

From my tender childhood

You were the perfect example

Of doing things that an amazing dad would

Thanks dad

2) Whenever you get mad

I get really scared

But I also feel bad

For making you feel sad

I just want to be the lad

Who makes his father glad

This gratitude is not a fad

You are truly the best dad

I could ever have had


3) No matter where I go

No matter what I become

I can always seek peace

By holding my daddy's thumb

No matter what I do

No matter how I am

I can always find support

In my dad, who is a gem

Thanks for everything dad

4) There are two things

That I have learnt from you

One of them is to never lie

And to always be true

The second one is

To never hurt anyone

And to treat people

As if they are second to none

Thanks dad

5) You didn't scold me

When I got bad grades

You didn't scold me

When I lied to you about the party

You didn't scold me

Even when I crashed you car

You didn't scold me

But the sadness in your eyes

I could clearly see

Thanks for being patient and mild

That was the biggest lesson there could be

Thanks dad

6) If life was a golf course

I would be a rogue golfer

Roaming the greens

Like a complete loafer

But you would be my savior

Like a wise caddy

I would survive on your advice

Thanks, my dear daddy

7) In every princess' life

There is always a prince

Who rescues her

Every time she winces

But more important than him

Is a genie called dad

Who grants all her wishes

And comforts her when she is sad

Thanks for being the genie in my life... dad

8) Don't lie

Don't break hearts

Don't cheat

Don't be over smart

Don't betray others

Don't break promises

Don't be too serious

Life is full of surprises

These are not just any lines

Out of a holy book

These are words of advice

From my daddy, that I took

Thanks for teaching me the ropes of life dad

9) You turned the worst strife

Into the best parts of my life

By teaching me to remember what I Iearnt

And forgetting how I got burnt

You taught me how to sail through

I wouldn't have made it, if not for you

Thanks dad

10) I am glad I have a father like you

Or I wouldn't have learnt to be honest and true

I wouldn't even have learnt how to be well behaved

My life's path, I wouldn't have so easily paved

But thanks to you dad, I have everything

With you by my side, I am scared of nothing

11) A dad who is loving

A dad who is so giving

A dad who is admirable

A dad who is so approachable

A dad who is so marvelous

A dad who is nothing less than tremendous

Is the kind of dad that God gave me

I am so lucky, now can you see

Thanks dad

12) How could I ever forgive

Myself for being so naïve

And rebelling against you when I was young

Little did I know that you were my hero unsung

But you never cringed or complained

Whether I hurt your feelings or your heart, I pained

Thanks for being such a tolerant father

Not everyone has such exemplary caliber

Thanks dad

13) It's all over Facebook and Google Plus

Today is the day when I will make all the fuss

It's all over Twitter and Pinterest

That I have a dad who is the best

It's all over MySpace and LinkedIn

That my dad is the one in my life who made me win

Thanks dad

14) I took too long to acknowledge

But now I take a pledge

My love for you, I will always confess

And ensure that my respect for you is never any less

That's because I have realized

That you are the person I have always prized

I wonder how I missed out on telling you

That you have been the best dad, all through

Thanks dad

15) Not everyone gets

A dad like you

I bet I am

One of the lucky few

And since I have

The best dad ever

I wouldn't do anything

That make our ties sever

Thanks dad

16) Cool and unruffled

In times troubled

Calm and peaceful

In times wonderful

Balance and stability

Is the secret key

To live an amazing life like you

Is what you have always taught me to do

Thanks dad

17) I am proud to have taken after my dad

My upbringing was the best I could have had

I am glad to grow up to be like you

To inherit your qualities, I want to continue

I thank God that he gave me your house to take birth

Of wonderful dads like you, there is a serious dearth

Thanks dad

18) In my tender age

On me, you made a perfect impression

When I started to grow

You showed me how the game of life is won

When I became an adult

You told me how

I should live in the moment

Here and now

At every stage of life

You gave me advice and some of your wisdom

Thank you dad, for being

So fantastic and awesome

19) Dear dad, today I am sad

Not because something bad has happened

But because I have just realized something

And my mind has been opened

All my life I was only thinking about myself

And wanted you to do stuff for me

But I have been very selfish all this time

Is what I can see

Let me start cleansing my conscience

By saying how grateful I am to you

For all the happy memories and happy times

Thanks dad, you have been great through and through

20) You are a great husband to mom

You are a great dad to us

You are a great employee to your boss

And all this, you do without a fuss

But more than all this

You are a great human being too

Today we just want to say something

That was much overdue, Thank You

1) When I was shy guy, my teachers, friends and everyone else tried to force me to come out of my shell but it never worked. It was only you my dear father, who asked me to be myself and enjoy whatever I was doing. That naturally made me come out of my shell. Thanks dad.

2) My daddy does not wear the most expensive clothes but his hugs are still warmer than the most expensive sweater money can buy. That is because my daddy does not have the biggest bank balance but he has the biggest heart. Thanks dad, for teaching me that money is not everything.

5) Some dads tell their sons to be strong, some dads tell their sons to be successful. Some dads tell their sons to be rich, some dads tell their sons to be flamboyant. My dad has brought me up, telling me to be honest as a person and loving as a partner. Thanks dad, for teaching me the core values of life.

6) My girlfriend asked me how I could be so rugged and so kind at the same time. I replied that it was because of growing up and watching you, a caring husband expressing love for his wife and children on a daily basis. Thanks for teaching me so much without actually teaching me.

9) The only reason I have never felt the need of confessing to father at church is because I have a lovely father at home in front of whom I can purge my conscience. Thanks daddy.

13) I would be wrong to say that I was born with a silver spoon. The way you brought me up, I can safely say that I was born with a platinum spoon. Thanks for being such a wonderful dad.

14) I hate it when you become so enthusiastic at functions in school because you embarrass me in front of my friends. But deep down inside, I find your antics cute and adorable. Thanks for taking interest in my life daddy.

26) Instead of telling me what to do and how to do it, you did it yourself to show me how it is done. Thanks for always teaching me by example.

27) The biggest freedom you gave me was not to go out for late night parties or spend my allowance the way I wanted to. The biggest freedom you gave me was to take any decision I wanted, as long as I was ready to face the repercussions. Thanks for giving me the best freedom of my life dad.

28) I don't want you to be proud of me just for turning out to be the son you always wanted. I want you to be proud of yourself for having a son and bringing him up just like you wanted. Thank you for everything dad.
