Another Poem

Here's a poem for the time being... I hope to have a "real" post up soon! :)

FATHER OF MINE
Sarah K. Marinee

Father of mine, some years ago
You showed me the way I ought to go;
By the gentle clasp of your own strong hand.


Father of mine, let me thank you for
The prayers you prayed and the burden you bore.
Like a guiding star thro’ the tempests’ strife,
All you precepts have shone on my path of life.


Father of mine, when the time has passed
And the work of my life is complete at last,
When I step ashore on the glory strand
With a grateful heart I will clasp your hand.
