Undying Devotion

To You I offer my life
In return for the highest form of love
You layed down for me

I give back to You my appreciation
For all those dreams You made possibly true.

The blessings You showered me all the days of my journey
I always treasure thee
You were a friend I can constantly call on
When all else fails and no one seems to be around to listen to me.

You gave me the gift of the written word
To proclaim Your goodness and my undying devotion
At times I may be faltering to pray unto You
But still Your presence by my side cannot be denied.

You are my Good Shepherd who lovingly takes care of me
When I seem to get lost at this maze of mundane desires
Like a little child You always embrace me and make sure I’ll be ok
I thank You for all these things and the rest of my days will keep on remembering!
