    A Prayer for Dad (memorial day memorial day memorial day)

    Lord, Shepherd my dad today
    In green pastures let him lay
    To still waters guide his way
    Restoreth his soul, I pray

    Lead him in the paths of right
    Through the valley give him light
    When he's afraid ease his fright
    With Thy rod and staff lend might

    Prepare a table of spoil
    Annointest his head with oil
    Give to him a cup that's royal
    Let goodness follow his toil

    And Thy mercy cease never
    May he dwell in Thy house forever
    This I ask in Jesus' name, Amen






    Psalm.23

    You are a very prolific poet - I like how you have taken the 23rd Psalm, one of my favorites, and reinvented it as your own. I have learned about this craft through some of my online poetry classes, however have not done it because I felt I could not replicate them appropriately - but you have done wonders - and your father may her rest his soul, would be very proud (Report) Reply

    A great Memorial Day poem in honor of your loving father.
    He would have been very pleased that such an honorable
