O' father


O’ father

O’ father of creation and existence,
The knower of men and each sense,
The grower of them to their roots,
O’ father of life to my gideon boots,
The giver of love to all the living,
The giver of life than fall in a minute,
The weaver of minds over the heavens,
The singer of lines and rhymes to his servants,
The disciple of truth to my soul,
The hand to my need over the cold,
You are the light to my salvation,
The light to my dark and reason,
You are the sound to my song,
The fountain of love than gone,
The mountain above us all for too long,
You are the father that listens,
You are the father of patience,
Your love unto me i cannot walk without,
Your words to my heart i cannot talk without,
Your shield has surrounded me against all evil,
And walked me through the valley of all evil,
To the shadow of death without fear,
In your arms, i run to stay so near,
Each day of the days of my life,
Until gone to the dust of my life.

Alone in our room. And my little, far-off
Children, too young to understand what keeps me
Away, or even remember Chang'an. By now,
