Use this Father’s Day poem favorite to make this Father’s Day a very special one for both Fathers and GrandDads alike.

If you don’t have a Father or GrandDad to honor, honor a gentleman that is a “father” figure in your or your child’s life…an uncle, a family friend…or visit a nursing home on Father’s Day and bring joy to those fathers and grandfathers who are without their children for one reason or another on Father’s Day.

Do You Have a Favorite Father’s Day Poem?

The following Father’s Day poem, What Makes a GrandDad?, is one of my favorite poems honoring both Fathers and GrandDads (past, present, and future) around the world. We may have our differences and conflicts, but when all is put aside, this is something we all have in common…love and appreciation for our DADs.

What Makes A GrandDad

God took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,

The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle’s flight,

The joy of a morning in Spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,

Then God combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so, He called it … GrandDad

Note: The original title for this Father’s Day poem was What Makes a Dad. In honor of grandads, I took the liberty of changing Dad to GrandDad.

I shared this Father’s Day poem with our grandchildren. They want to give it to Poppy, so they will change the title to What Makes a GrandPoppy for his Father’s Day. Their mom said she will print the poem, and frame it with a mat framing the poem.  On the mat, they’ll attach small sized photos of Poppy with our 3 children and 3 grandchildren. I know he’ll love this Father’s Day present!!
