(Spiritual Birthday Poem) 62


62

 

I can hardly believe that I am now 62

Has nature played a joke on you and me

I never thought this day is one I’d see

I look in the mirror startled by what I see

There’s this old ugly bald guy looking at me

 

Blessings have rolled my way to see this day

Without the Lord’s protection in a grave I’d be

So many times I’ve fallen into the world of sin

Yet the Lord always took my hand and forgave me

I don’t deserve the kindness the Lord shines on me

 

Through the Lord’s grace I now see this anniversary day

Bald, toothless and ugly yet still allowed this morning to see

The Spirit of the Lord still shines His love within the likes of me

I pray for the younger ones to this world I know I soon will leave

The Lord has compassion on all who have the wisdom to believe
