Graciela is a friend of mine.
Given to me by Love's own Divine.
Graciela helps me live out my purpose.
Especially when the world will tell me I'm worthless.
Granted to be such a true friend
by the Father's precious hand.
Graciela gives me strength to fulfill
Yes Graciela is a dear companion indeed.
She grants spiritual fortitude to the weak
and bestows Heavenly favor to those in need.
If you haven't figured who Graciela is I will tell you her identity.
She is an internal comforter that you cannot see.
Just like Faith and Love.
Blessed are we who have received
her from GOD's throneroom above.
Graciela is the Spanish female name for Grace.
Twas' the Father who gave her to me just in case,
I slip or fall, can't find my way.
His grace is my strength and tells
me everything will be okay.
Without the Father's Grace truly I could not be...
All that I am is by His Favor and Mercy.

Hey Temetrie. Thank you for your funny critique. I ripped off the smurfs? Oh yeah... ha ha! I wasn't even thinking about that when I wrote this. I agree that Gregorian chant would make it even better. :) Maybe I should add that now.
Your poem is so beautiful. I like the variety of rhyme patterns, the rhymes themselves were good, and the message is very meaningful and wonderful. Praise Him for His unparralled gift! Do you speak a lot of Spanish by the way? God bless!
