My Father’s Deep Love

It is Father’s day

I know my Father’s deep love

He gave all he had

 

I want to know the meaning

That he had when he began

What did he want life to be

For you and for me

 

He began with a vision

I will search this believing

What he had in mind was good

And I can find it

 

I know the place to begin

I  believe I am worth it

I must care enough for me

Look for a higher love

 

I found in me a darkness

That frankly has frightened me

I know I am capable

Of giving great pain

 

I have found I need help

From something larger than me

I know I am powerless

To overcome me

 

I began at the bottom

To discover I need help

To love myself and others

Mercy I received

 

I know that you forgive me

Because that is who you are

You are the one thing in my life

That will never shift

 

I praise you that I can read

I praise you that I can breath

I praise you that I can see

And hear your kind call

 

My mind is quickened 

My heart turns to see clearly

My imagination smiles

I’m open to love

Love is running to meet me

I surrender my being

 

I am in awe at what I see

When I practice gratitude

All day long I am aware

Of what’s really true

 

I pause to listen

In the early morning time

With expectation

 

I begin with taking in

Thoughts from the one who made me

Tasting the joy of great love
