The Strength of a Man

The strength of a man isn't seen in the width of his shoulders
It's seen in the width of his arms that circle you.

The strength of a man isn't in the deep tone of his voice,
It's in the gentle words he whispers.

The strength of a man isn't how many buddies he has,
It's how good a buddy he is with his kids.

The strength of a man isn't in how respected he is at work,
It's in how respected he is at home.

The strength of a man isn't in how hard he hits,
It's in how tender he touches.

The strength of a man isn't in the hair on his chest,
It's in his heart . . . that lies within his chest.

The strength of a man isn't how many women he's loved,
It's in how he can be true to one woman.

The strength of a man isn't in the weight he can lift,
It's in the burdens he can carry.
© July 15, 1999, Jacqueline Marie Griffiths


For a card by Henry Maxwell:
You taught me how
to ride my bike,
You showed me all
the things I like.

You gave me hope
when I had none,
You bought me my car,
my very first one.

You always let me
have my say,
So now I'm saying
Happy Father's Day.



"By profession, I am a soldier and take pride in that fact. But I am prouder, infinitely prouder, to be a father." (General Douglas MacArthur)

"I could not point to any need in childhood as strong as that for a father's protection." (Sigmund Freud)

"A father is neither an anchor to hold us back, nor a sail to take us there, but a guiding light whose love shows us the way." (unknown)

These are great TFS!

Here are a few more:

A father is neither an anchor to hold us back, nor a sail to take us there,
but a guiding light whose love shows us the way.

I never had a chance to choose the man to be my Dad--
But I sure thank my lucky stars for the taste my Mother had.

It doesn't matter who my father was; it matters who I remember he was. (Anne Sexton)

Dear Dad

Did I ever say thanks
for all the toys you mended,
games we played,
outings to the park,
and the way you always tried
to cheer me when I was down?

Did I ever say thanks
for the sacrifices you made
so I could be involved
in so many enriching activities?

Did I ever say thanks
for working so hard
to provide for our family?

Did I ever say thanks
for having such faith in me
and always being there
when I needed you?

But most of all,
Did I ever say thanks for caring?
Dad, I love you . . .
And I'm thanking you now.


Father's Day Card idea

(Use tool stickers or die-cuts to illustrate this poem.)


You're the finest Dad I ever SAW
You suit me to a T
And none can MEASURE up to you
That's PLANE enough to see.

So strictly on the LEVEL, Dad
I'm proud as PUNCH to say
You're the greatest Dad of AWL
So have a happy father's day.
