A FATHER’S INTROSPECT
He placed his little hand in mine
Looked up at me so tall;
I knew that I must ‘measure up’…
Or we’d both surely fall!
Before he even walked, I thought,
“What shall this child be?”
It took no time to realize…
That it depends on God and me.
God, we know, will do His part;
And I must do mine too.
It won’t be easy but with His help,
I can follow through.
I must be careful how I walk
Throughout my life on earth;
I want to give him back to God…
As pure…as at his birth.
