Father's Day Poem

Fathers are always being left behind when it comes on to celebrations

They work hard, provide food, shelter and love for their creation

But why are father’s day always downplayed

As others make merry of different celebrated days

Fathers are the front man, the one who stands in front the firing gun

The one who takes the bullet for the family while telling everyone else to run

Fathers are the backbone, the hero in the son

The heartbeat of his daughter, his adorable begotten one

Some fathers teach us how to swing a bat

Some teach us how to catch a ball

But one thing id for sure, Dads are the greatest of them all

Some fathers play tea party with their little princesses

Some give a mean eye to their daughters first date causing the young man distresses

Some Fathers are great cook, while others are clumsy in the kitchen

But the heart of a father is always goodwill for his children

Fathers are builders, fixers of homes

They can be gentle, but tough defenders of the family throne

Just like all other celebrated days, Father’s Day Matters

To celebrate the appreciation of the man, let’s all be father’s day gifts dispatchers.

You are right; Father's Day doesn't get the recognition Mother's Day does and this shouldn't be.

There must be at least four celebrations for the later. We both are carrying out different duties in a child's life and should therefore both be recognized.

Father's Day should be celebrated as mych as others, but I think you are right.

It does seem to be downplayed.

May you have a great day.

I will join you in saying, " Happy Father's Day. " This was a great reminder that all fathers matter and they are the backbone of the family.
