Because - Poem by Alexander Coppedge

You, My Lord, you 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's poison, 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 time growth, sorrows through years: me in my anticipation.
Pushed me, when I was unwilling; you saved me: rescue from death call.

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

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

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