You might find something in the links below, or maybe ideas for your own poem.
I also included a couple poems I found online.
by Judy Burnette
Dad...so many images come to mind
whenever I speak your name;
It seems without you in my life
things have never been the same.
What happened to those lazy days
when I was just a child;
When my life was consumed in you
in your love, and in your smile.
What happened to all those times
when I always looked to you;
No matter what happened in my life
you could make my gray skies blue.
Dad, some days I hear your voice
and turn to see your face;
Yet in my turning...it seems
the sound has been erased.
Dad, who will I turn to for answers
when life does not make sense;
Who will be there to hold me close
when the pieces just don't fit.
Oh, Dad, if I could turn back time
and once more hear your voice;
I'd tell you that out of all the dads
you would still be my choice.
Please always know I love you
and no one can take your place;
Years may come and go
but your memory will never be erased.
Today, Jesus, as You are listening
in your home above;
Would you go and find my dad
and give him all my love.
Not Just A Father
Not just a father was he
But a daddy and a friend
Even when he punished me
The purpose had an end
He traded away his youth
Worked hard day and night
Dedication revealing truth
To raise his children right
One of the last of a generation
Of fathers tough and true
Earned our respect and admiration
Like good role models do
His time on earth has ended
And although I'm empty and sad
Wounds are somehow mended
With loving memories of my dad
I'm sorry about your father's passing but believe me when I say that he will be there at your wedding, because he will always be a part of you. And remember to keep smiling, as this is your wedding day, and he will be smiling too.
