Dear Father In Heaven - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

The gifts I have been given,
Were to not keep to go unwrapped.
I had been taught that lesson,
Very early to escape being entrapped...
Within an ego to believe,
A selfish life to live...
Is not lived successfully.
And 'if' I just had a penny left in my pocket,
I should not for a moment hestitate to give it away.
Because those gifts I received,
Had for me a value more precious than gold!

'Dear Father in Heaven,
I am and will always be thankful for those gifts...
Only from YOU I have been given.
I can not express my appreciation more.
However...
Is it possible the blessings You have upon me bestowed,
Include a tuna sandwich made with whole wheat bread?
Some mayo, lettuce and a couple of slices of tomato?
That's if YOU desire to have me keep my beliefs...
'Something' about my staying devoted to YOUR guidance,
Deserves a 'sign' I would find a little 'more' appetizing.
I aint trying to be greedy, but...
YOU know what's happening.
AMEM.'
