Father Poetry: A Fathers Tribute - Poem by Loyd C. Taylor, Sr.


Fathers …
They are strong
When we need protection.
They are tender
When we need affection.

Fathers …
They are near
To chase our fears away.
They work hard
To provide day after day.

Fathers …
Their tasks many
Free minutes are so few.
They are special
For all the things they do.

Fathers …
They are disciplinarians
Yet soothe our pains away.
They are spiritual leaders
And taught us how to pray.

Fathers …
They are heroes
Though perfect they are not.
They are gracious
Our flaws some how forgot.

Fathers …
They are misjudged
In time they’ve given us.
They give wisdom
Through words spoken in love.

Fathers …
They are treasures
So today let us start,
Honoring our Father
And love with all our heart.

    .....a beautiful tribute to fathers....the one I had passed away, before I was one years old....but it's nice to see other people enjoy a father....the only father I have, or ever had is my God in heaven ★ (Report) Reply

    Mother is great in our society but we can not ignore the sacrifice of a father who has to work hard for the family. A very worthy poem revealing the presence and existence of a father. Thank you for sharing. Regards. (Report) Reply

    I did not experience this type of father; but I imagine I would be very proud of him had I had one like this. Your words are beautiful Loyd; words I hope you yourself were able to experience ;) (Report) Reply
