Sorry to hear Katiem2 that you lost your father at a young age. The good thing with acrostic poems is that they work not only for Father's Day but also for a multitude of other occasions and you can make them as complicated or as simple as you want.

Very Nice, We should always honor our parents. I lost my father when I was far to young. Great tribute to fathers and a fun way to do so.
