Melvin & Camryn - Poem by Luke Easter
Reverend Rodgers said, “I’ll pick you up along the way, ”
At Central Bible Baptist Church every fourth Saturday,
There’s a men’s prayer breakfast we don’t like to miss,
Sermons, questions, answers, June 2008 they had catfish.
Guest pastors, ministers and of course a deacon or two,
Scriptures from the testament, both the old and the new,
Fellowship by faith in Jesus’ Divine Blood runs through,
The word isn’t the word if the bible doesn’t say it’s true.
This chow line was pretty thick as I slowly made my way,
Pancakes, bacon, eggs, a biscuit, juice, at my table I’d stay,
For sure there was so much more but wouldn’t you know,
It’s cheaper than shopping Value City for brand new clothes.
A man sat down next to me but he continued to get up again,
Once, twice, three, four times, I wondered would this ever end,
My inquisitive nature had gotten the best of me inquiring why,
Found out his name is Melvin as tears began to swell in his eyes.
He asked if I remembered a father asking prayer for his baby girl,
How her healing would be the greatest gift in the whole wide world,
All the doctors said there was no hope, that nothing could be done,
That precious little girl’s father was none other than Melvin’s son.
Her name is Camryn she is 3 months, just a little over 90 days,
On this Fourth of July weekend it is for her Independence I pray,
“Father in the name of Jesus, You’re the Physician to take it away,
Grant life to this child in years, more than the doctor’s have to say.”
I know my new friend Melvin would gladly give half his life away,
For the grand daughter he loves, please give her permission to stay,
It’s the enemy’s doing, couldn’t get another family member to cave in,
Now, Satan is attacking the youngest because she is unable to defend.
Is this the time for such a little one to leave our world and come home?
Who are we to question the Potter along with Jesus sitting on the throne?
Whatever the case Dear Lord, rescind all her suffering, take away the hurt,
Sincerely! Melvin, Camryn & everyone @ Central Bible Baptist Church.
