I wrote this poem for my dad when I was in high school. It still rings true to my heart today. This year for Fathers’ Day may we all thank our dad for everything. If you do not have a dad, then thank all the father figures in your life and/or thank someone you know who is a father today.

FATHERS
By Christy L. Riley

A helping hand in times of trouble,
A smile during times of trouble,
And a tender hand
To help me along the way,
Or guide me down life’s path.
Loving me no matter what,
Showing unceasing compassion,
Demonstrating a love like no other,
Being all that he can be,
To be the very best
For me his child.
Caring,
Loving,
Giving,
You alone give all of this.
Your love is what makes me whole.
The fact that you give me everything
I could ever want or need,
Is more than I could ever imagine
Or even understand.
Your care for me while I’m sick
Is more beautiful and lovely
Than the daises and flowers
That bathe and clothe the fields.
A helping hand in times of trouble,
A smile during times of trouble,
And a tender hand
To help me along the way,
Or guide me down life’s path.
Caring,
Loving,
Giving,
You are all of these and so much more to me.
