There is this one being

I know loves me

Truly and Sincerely

He helps me breath

With ease

I can hear and see

Because He granted

Me these gifts

The body He gave me

Is whole and healthy

Telling Him “Thank You”

Does not compare

To His generous blessings

I have a roof over my head

And a full stomach

This love I am given,

I am grateful


He blessed me with

A family who loves me.

He tests my faith

With obstacles

He helps me pass.

Doing this

Makes me stronger

I love Him

And thank Him

For all that He has given me

I thank Him for

The Sun, that lights my path

And for

The Moon, that guides me

Through the dark.

I thank Him for

Being born who I am

And for

Loving me after all

The mistakes I made.

I thank Him for opening

My eyes and always being there.

If there is one being

I know I can turn to

It is Him

He watches over me

Day and Night

He protects me from

The Evils of the world

And of Myself

For 17 years I knew

Of your presence

But it wasn’t until


That I truly see your beauty

You fill my heart

With Truth

A truth,

That cannot be


When I turn to you

You are always there


You know what is

Best for me

You have given me

So much

And I thank you

But I have one

Thing to ask for

Please keep me on

Your path dont let

Me stray

Oh my beloved

I turn to you
