Once a man twice a child.

I remember when I was a child
I lived my life in a wonderland
Father looked after my spiritual need
He put me on the path of hope.
Listening to the minister speak
From his rostrum.
How long will we be dad?I wish to go home.
Listen son its for your own good
His words will keep you in good stead.
Fifty years on his words held true
The minister's words planted that seed.
So when my father sat next to me
At the age of ninety three.
Listening to the minister speak From
From his rostrum.
How long will we be son?I wish to go home
Listen dad it is for your own good
Didn't his words keep you in good stead.

I attended Church like You as a Youth.

I wanted to go Home but the Minister's Words caught me for a Lifetime.

I am so glad you have had this Relationship with God and Your Father.

Your ending is very well done.

God's Blessings be with You.....
