A Father's Day Poem

Saturday, June 17, 2006

Tomorrow is Father's Day. I will probably write a little more about this later, but for now I just wanted to post a poem that I wrote last year and we put on some wooden bookmarks that we gave to our men last Father's Day.

I am not a poet or the son of a poet (although my mother is an artist), but I submit this for your reading and challenge. Feel free to use it if you so desire.

A Father's Day Poem

I must be careful
as I live as father,
Love my dear children,
not count them a bother.

Teach them truth
in the way that I live
Show them God's wisdom
in the teaching I give.

Walking in Christ
as I walk before them.
Pointing them always,
always toward Him.

And this is my prayer,
as I pray all my days,
That they live for Christ,
both now and always.

Just my thoughts,

Nor Christopher Wren’s architecture.
Yet lest Father’s Day we lose or abjure,
