When I was younger my parents and leaders told me you loved
me. They said you were an example
of what I should try to be like. They said you would help
me if I prayed.
They said you would guide
me through my life. They said you would be an inspiration.

Although I didn’t know it exactly what inspiration
meant, I knew you loved
me. You showed me that through your guidance.
Your guidance came through promptings. You were an example,
to me. I would picture you in a situation, whatever action you took I took. I learned to pray
for things. Most of the things I prayed for then were small. Now mostly I pray for help.

Help for simple things like answers and what to say. Help
for inspiration for ideas, and you came through you always did when I really needed you. You were inspiring
I also prayed for people. For those in need of comfort and well being. I prayed
to you that they would feel your love
like I did. I prayed that I could be an example,
like you. You showed me your guidance.

You helped me to make right choices through your guidance
But often I didn’t heed your words. Even then you helped
me by being an example.
You were my inspiration
you showed your love to me through your actions because of that I had known you loved
me. You gave me loving parents who taught me good, of you. You gave me loving parents who prayed.

I heard them once praying.
They prayed for guidance
for me. They prayed I would know they loved
me. They asked for help
in raising me, for inspiration
on how they could be an example.

They were and are an example.
They taught me to pray.
They taught me that you could inspire
me. They showed me how they could guide.
People when they really needed help.
They showed me you loved me.

You are an example and inspiration
to me. I pray to you in faith because I knew that you would help
me when i needed you. You guided me often because of this I know your love.

Orginally I wrote this as a school asignment but it turned into so much more. A sestina to the Lord.
