Poetry

Over the years

When you look at me Lord
Do you still see those innocent eyes
That looked up at you 20 years ago as you knitted me together

Do you see the years that have gone past and how this flower has bloomed and now has thorns

I know
I was created in your image
Fearfully and wonderfully made
Great are your works
But do you see me the same

You hold my future, you have erased the sins of my past
I am still your child
You love me

I just want to know
Why didn’t you stop me all those times I went astray
Whether it was self discovery or stupidity
Why didn’t you pull me back immediately

Your ways are mysterious
But I am grateful that I have gone this far

And though feel the change that comes with being human and making mistakes over the years
I know that I will always be your child
Your live towards me unlimited, unconditional and ever lasting

Thank you
