This Universe Is Yours - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Nourish me with ALL that You have,
And ALL that I deserve.
I am the fruit of Your creation...
On this Earth,
Your Magnificence,
Is without question...
Divinely Superb!

And ALL that You give,
Is mine with a forgiveness...
Unconditionally bestowed upon me,
As You I serve.

Nothing less,
Will I accept if You reject it...
The best from You is there...
And with Your blessings I accept this!

Nothing else can please my needs,
If I 'should' forget You are near!
Or ignore your whispers in my ear!

This Universe is Yours,
And everywhere I seek You first!
I thirst for You...
My Father.
And within me it is clear,
You are right here...
And I am aware of it!

And in everything I do to prove,
Your guidance moves all obstacles too!
This I can do with a fate that is Your will.

I am Your son,
You are my Father!
With Unquestioned faith,
Inside of me I feel!
