  • I found this and it's for little kids who can't write yet. You type the poem and then put a little picture of the child and his/her handprint at the page. Hope you like it

    Sometimes you get discouraged
    Because I'm so small
    And always leave my fingerprints
    On furniture and walls

    But every day I'm growing -
    Wo I'll be grown some day
    And all those tiny handprints
    Will surely fade away

    So here's a little handprint
    Just so you can recall
    Exactly how my fingers looked
    When I was very small

  • I meant to say handprint on the page

  • Walk alongside me, daddy
    and hold my little hand.
    I have so many things to learn
    that I don't yet understand.

    Teach me things to keep me safe
    from dangers every day.
    Show me how to do my best
    at home, at school, at play.

    Every child needs a gentle hand
    to guide them as they grow.
    So walk alongside me, daddy -
    We have a long way to go.

    That is the one I settled on for us.

  • (Father) of (my) life.
    your life embraces me on
    every side;
    I open my arms to greet you . . .
    that I may be one with your mind of love.

    Derived from a poem by Richard Harris/words in parenthesis were substituted for the original to make this a poem for an earthly father rather than a heavenly one.
