ART & POETRY BY PAUL & KATHY BOECHER©
With every passing day, I feel you close beside me,
You watch each step I take, and perfectly you guide me,
And when my feet would stray – when things get in my way –
You pick me up and carry me through each and every day,
Temptations all around – distracting and confusing,
The world deters my thoughts, but through it you are using,
My simple mind, my childlike faith, my heart, my soul, my all,
To share your love with others – to hear your righteous call,
My life is just a breath, but it will never end.
You’ve given up your life for me. You are my dearest friend.
