I’D BE WITH YOU FATHER
by Asheesh Pandia

Sugarcane Juice, Bread and Jam, 
The Winter Chill, how I miss them,
A hundred memories, an endless tale,
Your deeds never dull, your love never pale,

I say the things, I shouldn't say,
I think of you, Every day,
And how you manage, to keep it up,
You made a home, we dreamt of,

Younger days, Ignorant bliss,
Papa those times, how I miss,
Rainy summers, we felt the rain,
You did your best, not all in vain,

Kids grow up, drop you to rest,
They give and carry, the pain in chest,
One flies east, One flies west,
No one flies, over Papa's nest,

But papa don't think, that 'I' forgot,
That all the while, I cared a lot,
We are just children, so we go wrong,
But always return, where we belong,

I always remember, more than you think,
I noticed you always, without a blink,
You work too hard, You're a perfect man,
Could I be alike? They say I can...

Your simple ways, your modest style,
You've walked for long, now rest a while,
I want to be close, I need to go far,
I know you feel bad, it's written on the star,

Fathers teach kids, All about Life,
They show them the fun; the pain and stife,
But kids still wonder, they wander in doubt,
And Papa you taught, What Life's all about,

Man thinks he's God, and not just a child,
The child of the God, in the world so wild,
I'm glad I found you, and just in time,
I caught the lyrics, in perfect rhyme.

ONLY A DAD
By Anonymous

Only a dad, but he gives his all
To smooth the way for his children small;
These are the lines that for him I pen;
Only a dad, but the best of men.

BE KIND TO THY FATHER
By Margaret Courtney

Be kind to thy father, for when thou wert young,
Who loved thee so fondly as he?
He caught the first accents that fell from thy tongue,
And joined in thy innocent glee."

THOSE WHO LOVE US BEST
by Ella Wheeler Wilcox
                                                                    
There's one sad truth in life I've found
While journeying east and west -
The only folks we really wound
Are those we love the best.

We flatter those we scarcely know,
We please the fleeting guest,
And deal full many a thoughtless blow,
To those who love us best.

YOU NEVER
by Anonymous

You never said I'm leaving
You never said goodbye
You were gone before I knew it,
And only God knew why
A million times I needed you,
A million times I cried
If Love alone could have saved you,
You never would have died
In Life I loved you dearly
In death I love you still
In my heart you hold a place,
That no one could ever fill
It broke my heart to lose you,
But you didn't go alone
For part of me went with you,
The day God took you home.

A LITTLE GIRL NEEDS A DAD
by Anonymous

A little girl needs Daddy
For many, many things:
Like holding her high off the ground
Where the sunlight sings!

Like being the deep music
That tells her all is right
When she awakens frantic with
The terrors of the night.

Like being the great mountain
That rises in her heart
And shows her how she might get home
When all else falls apart.

Like giving her the love
That is her sea and air,
So diving deep or soaring high
She'll always find him there.

FATHERS CAN BE SOLITARY MOUNTAINS
by Anonymous

Fathers can be solitary mountains,
All their love rock-like, steep, and strong.
Though warm and caring, somehow they belong
Halfway home to mothers' bubbling fountains.
Each of us needs love that knows no quarter,
Reminding us of bonds that cross a border,
Strengthening our sense of right and wrong.

FATHERS NEED NOT FATHERS BE
by Anonymous

Fathers Need Not Fathers Be
Fathers need not fathers be.
All one needs to do is choose
To love for life, and that embrace,
Held long and hard, bestows the grace
Each craves. For all in time must lose,
Restored alone by memory.
So now it is with you and me.

MY DAD’S HANDS
by David Kettler

Bedtime came, we were settling down,
I was holding one of my lads.
As I grasped him so tight, I saw a strange sight:
My hands. . .they looked like my dad's!
I remember them well, those old gnarled hooks,
there was always a cracked nail or two.
And thanks to a hammer that strayed from its mark,
his thumb was a beautiful blue!
They were rough, I remember, incredibly tough,
as strong as a carpenter's vice.
But holding a scared little boy at night,
they seemed to me awfully nice!
The sight of those hands - how impressive it was
in the eyes of his little boy.
Other dads' hands were cleaner, it seemed
(the effects of their office employ).
I gave little thought in my formative years
of the reason for Dad's raspy mitts:
The love in the toil, the dirt and the oil,
rusty plumbing that gave those hands fits!
Thinking back, misty-eyed, and thinking ahead,
when one day my time is done.
The torch of love in my own wrinkled hands
will pass on to the hands of my son.
I don't mind the bruises, the scars here and there
or the hammer that just seemed to slip.
I want most of all when my son takes my hand,
to feel that love lies in the grip.

MY DAD
by Anonymous

When I was just a tiny kid,
Do you remember when,
The time you kissed my bruises,
Or cleaned by soiled chin?

You scrambled for the balls I hit,
(Short-winded more than not,)
Yet, every time we'd play a game,
You praised the "outs" I caught.

It seems like only yesterday,
You wiped away my tears,
And late at night I called your name,
To chase away my fears.

Though time has changed your handsome grip,
Your hair is snowy white,
You gait's a little slower now,
Thick glasses help your sight.

Oh, do I thirst for years gone by,
To be that growing lad,
Re-living all of the memories,
Of growing with my dad.
