Our bond: A poem

The bond that we have, you and I

Never can I explain or clarify

And it can never be severed till I die

Only to be fulfilled after death's final try

For you taught me first in humility

To bow my head low to thee

Gentle and patient, to be

Yet how I still cannot see

When I fall, I am unhurt

When the world is cold and curt

Then, behind me, unnoticed, you stand

And with warmest smile, my grief, disband

Flowery verses, I use to thee

For you are grand and regal to me

Yet with velvet words, to me, you speak

Softly chiding when I go astray or am weak

Every day, yet more precious

With simple joys, not luscious

You draw me closer to thee

Lord, where forever, I hope to be
