Poem Title:  A Father And A Dad Are Not The Same

Poem Category:  Fathers/ Fathers Day Poems

Poet:  Nicholas Gordon

Poet Biography: 
Nicholas Gordon (1940-present) is now retired but for much of his working life, taught English at New Jersey City University. This poetry is used by kind permission



Poem: 
A father and a dad are not the same:
One can be a dad and not a father,
Or one can be a father and not bother
To earn through love the more endearing name.
Some find fatherhood a bit too tame,
Leaving all the details to the mother,
Or dumping the sweet burden on another
Man with just a passing twinge of shame.
You have been our dad so many years
That you've become the landscape that is home,
The mountain that we look to from afar.
No matter where we go we're not alone,
For you remain within to still our fears
And be the word that tells us who we are.
