Udiah (witness to Yah)

(1959 / USA)

A Prayer for Dad (memorial day memorial day memorial day)


Lord, Shepherd my dad today
In green pastures let him lay
To still waters guide his way
Restoreth his soul, I pray

Lead him in the paths of right
Through the valley give him light
When he's afraid ease his fright
With Thy rod and staff lend might

Prepare a table of spoil
Annointest his head with oil
Give to him a cup that's royal
Let goodness follow his toil

And Thy mercy cease never
May he dwell in Thy house forever
This I ask in Jesus' name, Amen






Psalm.23

    You are a very prolific poet - I like how you have taken the 23rd Psalm, one of my favorites, and reinvented it as your own. I have learned about this craft through some of my online poetry classes, however have not done it because I felt I could not replicate them appropriately - but you have done wonders - and your father may her rest his soul, would be very proud (Report) Reply

    A great Memorial Day poem in honor of your loving father.
    He would have been very pleased that such an honorable
    poem was written for him. To dwell in the house of the lord
    forever Amen! A lovely tribute. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
