The Senior Years

Father God, you have lead me through
The childish years.
You came to my side, calmed me through
Youthful fears.
There are new challenges now Lord.
I am in my Senior Years,
There is alot I don't understand,
Some are re-newed fears.
There is peace in my soul for I have seen
Victories in my life's pages.
In my senior years Lord, it seems I have
Known you for ages,
You have been my comfort, my strength all
Through life's rugged ways.
You are awesome Lord! May your praises be upon
My lips, my remaining days.
I dedicate the rest of my senior years to proclaim
Your love to all who will turn to you,
So some will follow seeing your faithfullness,
Then give you praise and Glory too.
I offer you every fiber of my being as a pleasing
Sacrifice of committed love,
And cling to you as a hand squeezed into a tightly
Fitted glove.
Until my breath is gone and my earthly
Life is no more,
I stand at heavens gate, finally home,
At eternity's door.
I shall not see death, only your sweet rest,
Begining of life tis sweet, but home with you
Will be the best.

I like the flow of this poem, like a crescendo at the middle, then winding down at then end, a perfect match with the words.

"A lot" is two words, not "alot," and "renewed" instead of "re-newed."

Lovely rhyme scheme and heartfelt emotion.

I enjoyed reading this one. It has a wonderful flow, expressive descriptions, good rhythem. Agree with Jan, a little work on a few spelling errs but an easy rememdy. This is a really well thought out poem and blessing. God bless ya, littlelight
