Caring fathers are such a treasure,
With big responsibilities galore,
Working arduous hours each week,
Their children's security to ensure.
Fathers, like shepherds, watch over their flocks,
Aware of each child's needs and fears,
Quick to praise and slow to condemn,
Preferring to encourage hope, not tears.
As shepherds, dads exercise great wisdom,
Treating loved ones with such deep respect,
Long arguments and bitter attitudes,
Children, happily, will not detect.
These champions age, steps grow slower,
Offspring now assume that caring role,
Time for them to appreciate fathers,
Whose virtues they all proudly extol.
"Father's Day" recognises these men,
Fun-filled and sports days they remember,
Surely such dads are God-given parents,
We drink a toast to them each September.
