Gary the Poet's Pen
Versatile Psalmist 102.0
Remember Me, Lord
Remember me, Lord, when my eyes begin to fail
Guard my steps and let me not walk upon a nail,
Remember be, Lord, when my voice is a whisper
Once it was loud and commanding, like a twister.
Remember me, Lord, when my mind is not clear
Keep my mind fixed upon You, free from all fear,
Remember me, Lord, when my children do leave
Let me be content and to their memory cleave.
Remember me, Lord, if my wife goes on before
May she be waiting for me on Heaven’s shore,
Remember me, Lord, if my appetite goes away
Help me to consume my daily bread every day.
Remember me, Lord, if a storm passes my way
Calm my nerves and let the storm pass away,
Remember me, Lord, and help me to now forgive
Being at peace with others in this life that I live.
Remember me, Lord, when my hairline recedes
Conquer my vanity like King Cyrus of the Medes,
Remember me, Lord, in this simplest of prayer
At the end of my life to see You in glory there.
Remember me, my Lord…
