I Want To Be His - Poem by Sam Pete

I want to be a shepherd
Raise flocks of sheep
I want to be a fisherman
Catch hauls of fish like the noble Pete

I want to run a school
Teach little children
And watch them play
Hold hands and laugh together
See them grow and love me back

I want to be an angler by the stream
Sit by a fish pond
In the shade
Of overspread branches
Write poetry and sing
My horse nearby,
My dog in the distance

I want to fly
Own a private jet plane
Fly around the world
With a friend
For human company

Want to go everywhere
See all places, people too
Live in big cities
With all humanity around
And ne'er a lonely moment

Want to ride elephants, wild horses
Walk with lions, tigers beside
Bathe the hippos
Dance with peacocks, feed a giraffe
Watch rhinos eating from my hand

Want to sail
In my own small yacht
Swim with dolphins
Ride the whales, feel the sharks
Dive deep into the ocean
Watch the sea horses

Play in the water, in the sand
With my little children

I want to have a garden, lawns, fruit trees
Sit in the shade, smell the flowers

I want to build a house
And dwell in peace
With my woman from the Lord

I want to sing to Him
Read His Word, meditate
Grow in the Grace
Of His knowledge and wisdom
Commune, worship, praise
And walk hand in hand
Together and be led -

By my Creator, my Maker, my Lord, my God
Who gave His all for me
I want to be His, now and forever and ever.

    I seldom find a man whose spirit is in tune with God's spirit. It's a privilege to read the poetry of such a man as you. I share the noble sentiments of your wonderful poem. If only I can give you more than the usual 10. (Report) Reply
