Thank You Poems for Dad

Sweet poem to say thank you to dad

Thank You Poems for Dad: Stop waiting for Father’s Day or your dad’s birthday to say thank you to him. Bring a cute smile on the old man’s face by randomly sending him sweet quotes and messages in a text, letter, greeting card or a handwritten note. If all that seems a bit too over the top, post it on his Facebook or tag him in a tweet. Read these poems and reflect on your own father-son or father-daughter relationship. Think about your bond with your dad to write your own original short rhyme so you can honestly say that the words came straight from your heart. Regardless of whether you pen down something touching or something witty and funny – what is more important is the fact that you took the time to show gratitude to the man who puts your life before his own. Your dad will feel proud to be a parent of a child who realizes all the sacrifices that go into being a good father.


1) Dear dad…

When you swung me high in your arms

You were pushing me to reach new heights

When you sang for me, those lullabies

Your voice gave me peaceful nights

When you sorted out my problems

You lent me a sense of support

When you told me to stand up for myself

You showed me how to hold fort

When you gave advice and corrected me

At every wrong step that I took

Your words gave me a perspective that

Can never be taught by books


2) My friends say that I am cool

My colleagues say that I am special

My mentors say that I disciplined

My bosses say that I am loyal

My best mate says I am trustworthy

My family says that I am loving

My partner says that I am passionate

My coach says that I am hard-working

But little do these folks know

That the source of each quality

Is none other than the man

Who I proudly call, my dearest daddy



3) In life, there are some people

Who deserve much gratefulness

Because they are the only ones

Who bring about a lot of happiness

Among that array of people in my life

You are on the very top of the pile

Dear dad, I thank you for everything

On my face, you have always put a smile


4) Whenever I asked for a new toy

You always got me one

If I was down and depressed

You made me have fun

Whenever I wanted to go out

You were always game

If mom scolded me

You always took the blame

Whenever I did something wrong

You made me set it right

Without yelling at me

Or getting into a nasty fight

For every little generosity

You’ve shown me along the way

I will be forever grateful to you

Until my dying day

Thanks daddy


5) No one else can be as fortunate

As the girl that destiny has made me

By giving a special person in my life

None other than my dearest daddy

No one else can be lucky enough

As the woman that I have become

For getting the best that life has to offer

All because of a dad who is awesome

Thank you


6) Just like how words escape you

When you want to express

Your love for me, along with

The way I give you happiness

The right words and phrases

I can’t seem to find right now too

To say how grateful, dear dad

I will always be to you


7) You didn’t just give me food when I was little

You fed me many virtuous thoughts

You didn’t just give me toys to play with

To share and care, you also taught

You didn’t just clothe me when I was a baby

You taught me how to wear my attitude

You didn’t just teach me how to talk

You taught me to speak with fortitude

In every little element of my life

You made a great contribution

For every single thing, I thank you dad

You have made my life a celebration


8) You are the kind of dad

Who would put any superhero to shame

Because you are a hero in real life

While they are heroes only in a camera’s frame

Thanks for giving me wings

And helping me fly with you

Without a cape or magical powers, you have proved

That you are a hero, not fake but true

Thanks dad


9) Sometimes you did not stop me

Even when you could see

That I was making a mistake

Instead, a second look you told me to take

Protectively, you let me fall and learn

So eventually, my own merit I could earn

Tough love, you showed me day after day

I wouldn’t want to be brought up any other way

Thanks dad


10) There are times when I sit down to think

What I would have possibly done without you

And the only answer I can come up with

Is that I would have been totally blue

From my confused and horrid teenage

Right through my crazy days at uni

You have been there all the way

Dad, thank you for supporting me

Beautiful thank you card poem for dad

11) Dear dad…

I think of you, feeling obliged

When I have the courage to do anything

I think of you, feeling grateful

When I achieve something

I think of you, feeling indebted

When I realize that I have everything

I think of you, feeling thankful

Because my life without you, is nothing


12) A father-daughter relationship

Is a really strange one

It is special in its own way

Being one in a million

While they are with each other

They get embroiled in many a fight

But when they are away

They miss each other day and night

It is all this and much more

That makes us an awesome duo

I thank you for everything dad

Is what I want you to know


13) The words I use to define life

Are happy and prosperous

Everything has been smooth

Seldom, has there been a fuss

Destiny has been very kind

Fate has been very generous

For giving me a daddy who is

Strong, giving and simply fabulous

Thanks dad


14) If you were a flower

I would keep you on my desk all day

If you were a jacket

I would wear it even in the heat of May

If you were a book

I would read through thoroughly

If you were a gold locket

I would keep you safely

But since you are my dad

I can always keep you in front of my eyes

Thanks for giving me the life you have

Along with such wonderful family ties


15) I shared our photos

In an album on Facebook

So at our amazing bond

Others can take a look

I pinned one of your pictures

On a new board on Pinterest

So everyone can see my daddy

Who is the best of the best

Today I am shouting out

On Twitter with a tweet

To say thank you to my father

Who is so caring and sweet


16) The alphabet F in father stands for

A quality called Fortitude

The second alphabet A stands for

Always having a great Attitude

The third alphabet T stands for

The Terrific person that you are

The fourth alphabet H stands for

The Hero that you have been so far

The fifth alphabet E stands for

The virtue of Excellence that you taught us

The sixth alphabet R stands for

The trait of being righteous

So, your title itself proves

What a wonderful father you have been

Thanks for tirelessly being

The best dad I have seen


17) God gives little girls

Daddies like you

So that they are always protected

From evil and suffering undue

I thank both

God and my daddy

For giving making sure that I have

The best of everything in my destiny


18) Children who say thank you to their dads

Only on Father’s Day

Don’t realize that they shouldn’t wait

In the whole year, for just one day

They also don’t understand

How irreplaceable their dads will always be

Without them, happiness in their lives

They would never, ever be able to see

Luckily I know far too well the importance

Of my father’s role in my life, in every way

Which is why I want to express my gratitude

Many more times than just on one day

Thanks dad


19) Just like how a teenager loves his play station

Just like how an artist loves his own creation

Just like how a connoisseur loves his beer

Just like how a sportsperson loves his gear

Just like how a girl loves her dolls

Just like how a shopaholic loves visiting malls

Dad, I am addicted to love and care from you

My thanks and gratitude, are long overdue


20) An integral part of life

Is not just your money

An integral part of life

Is not just your honey

An integral part of life

Is not just your car

An integral part of life

Is not a holiday to a place too far

An integral part of life

Is not a just your house

An integral part of life

Is not just a committed spouse

An integral part of life

Is a loving dad

Who can forget his own dreams

To grant you the wishes you have always had

Thanks dad

Short poem to say thank you to dad in a message

21) Summing up my life

With meaningful metaphors

Would be a play of words

Where you would be the core

The cup of my life

Has always over flown

Because you’ve taught me

Things I’ve never known

The garden of my life

Has borne me much fruit

Because you’ve nourished me

From my very roots

The pitch of my life

Is ready for many a home run

Because I’ve been trained

By you dad, thanks a ton


22) You are the man who taught me to drive

You are the man who helped my passion to thrive

You are the man who gave me everything I wanted

You are the man who I playfully taunted

You are the man I think of, in times of trouble

You are the man without whom my life would be nothing but rubble

You are the man who I look up to

Dad, this is just my humble attempt to say thank you


23) Thank you can be said to a person

Whose favors you can return

Not to a person who has

Given you birth and helped you learn

Thank you can be said to a person

Whose gratefulness you can pay back

Not to a person because of whom

Your entire life is on track

That is the reason why, thanking you

Can never be enough or justified

I declare that without you in my life

I just cannot make do

Thanks dad


24) Guys like showing off their new cars

But I like showing off the father you are

Guys like showing off their new PS2

But I like showing off the dad in you

Guys like showing off the love of their lives

But I like showing off my relationship with you that thrives

I guess other guys are stupid not to realize

That their fathers are actually their lives’ real prize

Thank you dad


25) When I get a compliment

It indirectly comes to you

My success, to you I owe

Is not a fact which is new

When someone pats me on the back

To tell me that I was awesome

I pass on the credit to you

For making me the person I have become

Thanks dad


26) Dear dad…

Thank you for

Bearing every tantrum

Thank you for

Being married to mum

Thank you for

Being a father so ideal

Thank you for

Giving me values so real

Thank you for

Telling me to be the best

Thank you for

Not giving a damn about the rest

Thank you for

Being the best dad you could be

Thank you for

Always believing in me


27) If I had to compare

Your value in my life to something

I would not be able to

Compare you to anything

If I had to pick

Between someone else and you

I would make the correct choice

And stick to you like glue

These cheesy lines are to show

The kind of gratitude I feel towards you

Dad, thanks for being there

Not just a few times, but through and through


28) Thanks for being the perfect package

Of care and concern

Thanks for guiding me through every path

Especially when my life took ugly turns

Thanks for always knowing

Exactly when and what to say

Thanks for being liberal enough

To always let me have my way

Thanks for perfectly playing

The role of a super cool father

Your presence in my life

Can be taken by no other


29) I understand quite clearly

I wouldn’t have been so carefree

Nor would I have been so happy

Or cheerful and bubbly

People would never call me lovely

I wouldn’t see myself as pretty

If I wasn’t brought up by my daddy

Who I love so dearly

Thanks dad


30) Dad…

Now I know

Why you said no

To my bad habits

That annoyed you to bits

Now I know

Why you said no

When I tried to be mean to look cool

You stopped me from being a vicious fool

Now I know

Why you said no

To crazy things that I desired

And the way they backfired

Now I know

Why you said no

To let me do things my own way

Your advice, I remember every day

Thank you
