A Prayer - Poem by Matthew McKellar

A simple word is all I need. Please treat me with kindness and love for this I plead. I have lived a life full of pain sometimes I find myself questioning all I have left to gain. Oh lord please hear my cry and know I am searching for the truth and finding that your love has been with me since my youth. But now, now I am getting older. Smarter, wiser, kinder, bolder. For one can glance and see for it is you who created all things. But now the time has come for a question of doubt. I am always in pain with no love can this world be found but upon life's complaint I find it sad you have allowed me to endure, but through peoples hate I found love can still be pure. So give me a simple word for I am a simple man. If I die will my memory stay with you until that day comes for which you have a plan. So I find comfort in you for you are all I need amen!
