Our Faithful Father
We know you as a Father of three,
We’re so grateful to honor thee.
Thanks for quality time we spent,
We valued every dollar and cent.
Your love showed you deeply cared,
Keeping your pedigree safely reared.
While showing us the sporting ropes,
You stood strong against dirty dope.
Our peaceful home was neatly furnished,
You kept it clean, and kindly cherished.
With sunny smiles and bantering jokes,
You taught us grace with friendly folks.
We’re glad you never complained about us;
Your spirit of love is worthy of trust.
We thank you Father for all you do.
God’s richest blessings rest upon you.
Why This Poet Writes
I write because I believe it’s fitting
For someone might hear and start repenting
I write because I have a very short time
Not because my poems may rhyme
I write for the future, and also for the dead
After the grave, then what will be said?
I write for the Christians, in hope of the Gospels
For all that are troubled, whom Satan has hassled
I write for I know, there’s a more serious cause
So these poems like Jesus will be without flaws
I write for the people of every color
Someone needs to give them a holler
Lastly, I write for someone’s aching heart
To give hope in Jesus, and begin a new start
The time is now!
it is not too soon,
for now it is late
in the afternoon:
And our day is fading
Without so seeming,
And into the sunset
we go dreaming.
Awake, O nation —
The Christ avow!
For God’s salvation
The time is now!
B. Philip Martin
