God’s Favourite Child

Paint it on my death bed

Paint it on my forehead

Paint it anywhere you want

Paint it as I’ve said

He handled my affairs

I’ve had my share of care

I know He always listened

He always answered my prayers

Keep me safe from harm

Keep me safe and warm

Call me in your tender home

Call me in your arms

He freed me from my chains

Kept me from sin and men

Pulled me through the darkest nights

So I’ll sing again

Paint it on my death bed

Paint it on my forehead

Paint it anywhere you want

Paint it as I’ve said

  1. Frank this is a good poem. I have a concern with a couple of the rhyming couplets.
    “He always answered my prayers” could be changed to “He answers every prayer.” This would keep your iambic meter but rhyme more readily with “care”.
    Hope that helps.

  2. Hi There,

    I was hoping to send this to you directly, but couldn’t find a way to contact you, so I figured I’d just comment on your most recent post. I noticed that you liked several of my latest posts about my Domestic Violence story on my blog, becomingbeautifultoday.com. I just wanted to reach out and say thank you for your support. It means a lot to me that you connected enough with my story that you came back to keep reading it.

    Thanks again,
    Laura
