FATHER’S

Of course, rough going!  Not in heaven yet!

Does God help along in spite of mind-set?

We struggle against!  But deliverance ever!

He never fails us, never fails to deliver!

.

.

Such a happy childhood until father died!

India, in a rowboat, wide river, crocodiles

I reached out for what I thought was a river wild plant

A crocodilian nose waiting to devour.

.

.

Recognition then as my father’s oar

Lifted my hand, well that’s what oars are for!

Then it came down with a resounding whack!

Reptile disappeared but soon it came back!

.

.

Got under the boat to tip is over!

Uncle Fred, with his shotgun, no not over!

Shot that huge tail, disappeared in a flash!

Went down for a tail-nursing and did not come back.

.

.

Many such incidents:  mother, one night

Saw wide eyes approaching, wide and bright!

Mother screamed!  Panther disappeared!

Positive it was a panther, villagers feared!

.

.

Such incidents happened, sure many a time!

Life expectancy?  Would not give a dime!

For longevity, with disease and such!

Disease took my father, I loved so much!

.

.

Turned my back on God!  Was He teaching me,

His fatherhood over all humanity?

Not satisfied!  My own loving dad,

For years, embittered sad heart, turned bad!

.

.

Sure, I returned!  His love drew me in!

After spent too much time in sin!

Sinful habits, vary hard to break!

Who say otherwise, my own huge mistake!

.

.

Now 90 years later, here I am, living for Him.

He who died to save me from every sin.

Preparing for heaven, what else is there?

Heaven’s bliss with others share!

.

.

 Where the Sam is going, thank God!

“Oh, come and go with me to my Father’s house!”
