Losing a father is one of the hardest things that we go through in life.
A father is someone who is always there for us. He taught us lessons that we will keep in our hearts and minds for the rest of our lives.
And after he has passed away, his birthday can be a difficult day, because it is a reminder of someone we lost. But at the same time, it can be a day used to celebrate the life of a man who meant so much to us.
On your dad’s birthday this year, allow us to help you celebrate a beautiful life with some words of memory, and love.
We understand that this may be a difficult day for your whole family. With these thoughtfully crafted birthday messages for a dad in Heaven, we hope you’ll be able to both cherish and honor his memories.

Short Happy Birthday Dad In Heaven Poems
My Dad, the Party Man
He would walk into a room and turn on the music.
He would say, ‘get up off your feet!’, and start to dance.
And we would all just listen, get up, dance with him.
He made it look so easy — being the life of the party.
Today I know that up in Heaven there’s a party.
And it’s unlike anything they’ve ever seen before.
Because it’s my Dad’s birthday, and no matter what,
He is going to get everyone up and dancing.
Happy Birthday Song
Happy birthday dear Dad,
Though you’re gone, we aren’t sad.
For we know you’re still with us,
And for this we are glad!
I remember his hands
How they could fix anything
How I marveled at their strength
Their loving power.
Large and rough with
Dirt lining each crease
They held my tiny fingers and
They held up my world.
On this night I lie awake
I feel my mind about to shake
But ‘thorns do not roses make’
Your wisdom comes to me.
‘Stay beautiful as a flower’
‘Stay powerful at every hour’
The thoughts of your words I’ll devour
Like a lullaby to sleep.
The Things You Gave Me
A watch. A few books you enjoyed. A hat. A collection of photos.
A nose (everyone says I have your nose). A cleft chin. Eye color.
Poise. Honor. Morals. The strength to go on without you.
You gave me so much over the years. I am a product of your making.
I look at all of these things, and think of you. I think of how lucky I am.
On days like today, I am even more grateful. On days like today,
I celebrate the man who made so much — who made me.
You always taught me to keep my promises, that giving your word is sacred.
I remember the last thing you promised me, that you would be with me always.
There are moments and there are days that I do not feel you here.
Those are the days I feel at my worst, like the world is caving in over me.
But then, I remember your promise, how sure your voice was, how strong.
I take a breath. I lean back, and I listen to the sounds of the world around me.
And I swear in those moments, in the quiet hum of the Earth, I can hear you.
I can hear your voice telling me you’re here. You are always here on this day.
The Things I Will Always Remember
Blanket forts and ice cream in the back of your car.
Your smile holding a single lit cigar.
How you cheered for me like I was a star.
I can never forget these moments.
Hugs goodnight and hugs awake.
Cooking ribs and grilling steak.
How you forgave each small mistake.
The things I will always remember.
Your voice in my mind sings me lullabies each night.
Reminds me of home — of your beautiful life.
The smell of your coffee when I woke up each day,
The smile you gave me, how it’s there when I pray.
I never knew how lucky I was, but I know it well now,
For the love that you gave me, forever somehow.
I can feel it each night when you sing me that tune.
I can feel it each night, the sweet song of you.
There are a few days that I struggle through each year.
The anniversary of your return home to Heaven
And the anniversary of your start on this Earth.
Two opposites, like yin and yang, yet they both
Sting like nettles hidden in the year’s grass.
I miss the days when I did not have to think at all–
When we could just sit together and laugh
I eagerly wait for these days to come again.
Lessons in Soccer
The day I fell and scraped my knee on the soccer field
Was the same day you sat me down and told me you were proud of me.
I asked, ‘For what? I fell. I failed’, but you only laughed.
You told me, ‘For getting back up and playing through it.
For not letting failure keep me on the ground’.
You taught me many things in your life, but this above all:
Never give up even when you fall.
Dance Again Soon
You bought me a dress for the school dance.
It was pink or maybe blue — I do not remember.
I waited for my date to pick me up, running late.
It turned 8 or maybe 9 — I do not remember.
What I do remember is how you walked in,
Reached out your hand and danced with me yourself.
I did not need to go to anywhere else when I had you,
And I look forward to the day we dance again soon.
A Father’s Embrace
A Father’s embrace is the biggest act of love,
And it’s something I still feel sent down from above.
It’s a hug or a kiss, but it’s also a promise.
It’s protection, connection, a moment of solace.
It’s being held, and knowing you’re okay.
It’s feeling warm and safe in every way.
My Father’s embraces were the best of any,
And though he is gone, I still feel them plenty.
A Party in Heaven
The party has started and the angels are singing.
Balloons float like clouds and the music is swinging.
There’s a pile of presents in the corner from guests.
You have opened a few, time to open the rest.
You are all grilling steaks as the cake starts to leaven
This is what it’s like for my dad’s birthday in Heaven.
