Father above, Everything has changed. I have changed. Sometimes I mourn my
innocence that is gone. It was easier then. But as the innocence ebbed away I learned The tolerance You told me I
needed. As the hurts compiled I learned The forgiveness You said was essential. While my attention drifted, You waited Patiently,
and when I searched for You, You embraced me. When my doubts plague From the recesses of my mind I close My eyes
and ears, and relive those moments That convinced me of the truth. What keeps me Walking, breathing...hoping, is the
knowledge You are there. I am so unworthy, yet You wait for me. Thank You. It is not enough, but it is all I have To
give... Thank You.
