My Prayer

Were You there when, in my darkest hours,
My mind was full of dread?
Were You at my side, through thick and thin,
Though fainter hearts had fled?
Did You wipe away my silent tears,
And hold me till they dried?
And did You lend me Your wise counsel,
When in You I did confide?
When my Faith was at its lowest ebb,
Did You erase all doubt?
And when I couldn't find my way,
Did Your guidance help me out?
When pain and sadness swept me up
In torrents of emotion,
Were Yours the harbour lights I saw
On the crest of a cruel ocean?
Whenever I was at wit's end,
And needed consolation,
You always gave me courage
To fight through my desolation.
Your constancy has always been
My strength, my motivation.
A plan by which to live my life.
Make each day a celebration.

Dear God, to whom I owe much more than I could repay in a thousand lifetimes, I thank you for your never ending Love, and I pledge to you my heart, my soul and every fibre of my being, for now and evermore,

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
