Because - Poem by Alexander Coppedge

You, My Lord, are my encouraging inspiration.
A king who allowed his death to claim those loved.

You're a rare jewel amidst the created host.
Cupid arrow deep in the veins of my heart.

You who had much waited on my requirements.
Taught me of love wisdom: you instructed me in the law.

You, my high King, aided my many shortcomings.
Structured my weaknesses: my fortress walls of stone.

You watch my growth through years in anticipation.
Pushed me when I was unwilling: you saved me from death call.

You took me as child, fed me truth: watched me journey to my end.
A seed to be planted in love, sprout to expand: it from stem to thorn.

You are my light of guidance, hope of life: you giving to me.
Unto you, I bow, me in the name of the Father: I serve.

I to come to final: laid in memories of services.
Because, written on my grave.
