Thank you poem for dad from a daughter.
Thank you poem for dad from a daughter.

As a son or daughter, you are bound to express love for your dad on Father's Day or on his birthday. But if you say something sweet, write something funny, or give him a warm hug on a random day to thank him for everything he has done, he will feel like the luckiest father in the world. You, your brothers and sisters, and your mom can also pool money to pamper your dad by buying him a gift.

Thank-You Poems for Dad: Short Rhymes to Express Gratitude to Your Father

Poems are supposed to come from the heart. Think about the special moments you have spent with your dad and jot them down on a notepad. Jog your memory and think about the time your dad sacrificed something to be there for you on your birthday, when he carried you on his shoulders or how he bought something that you always wanted.

You will find that there are thousands of reasons why you should thank your dad for making your life the sole purpose of his life. Instead of waiting for Father's Day, surprise your dad by giving him a thank you card out of the blue. He may or may not cry after reading your poem, but his heart will melt and he will give you a warm hug, like he always has.

  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

Thank you poem for dad from a son.
Thank you poem for dad from a son.
  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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

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.
