Oh fair child with golden locks and piercing blue eyes

So beautiful and innocent; a sight to cherish and behold

Of a time when, I knew my youth but now so old

When every day of my life, a new drama did unfold

 

When my life was a smile, no heartache or pain

Ignorant of the greedy, of the proud and vain

A discovery of life; new experiences to own

Seeds of maturity to sow and I was grown

 

And then a creature of desires, was I

Chasing lust and greed, I sigh

Thankless, full of ignorance and spite

Irritable, irrational, given to fight

 

Till a malady visited me one day

And my health no more did stay

Suddenly arrogance and vanity took flight

And sight of my reality was restored to me

Prostration before God, a prayer and a plea

My sins came swimming before my eyes

Reminding me of my hypocrisy and lies

Guilt came pricking my heart and mind

Solace and peace were so hard to find

Memories of a time when I was fit and strong

When life was beautiful and such a song

 

And now in infirmity, all my pleasures gone

A reality of my disobedience to Him comes along

 

In trial and tribulation, I turn to Him and pray

End my suffering, shower Your Mercy this way

 

When hope nearly dried out, I wept and cried

All seemed lost till Mercy strode my way

My health restored, God had had His Say
