Father, you came to me first, not as God, nor creator,
but as a friend.
You have given me hope when I had none.
Shared your love when I had none to share and held me safe in your arms
You have opened up the doors to my soul and shown me that which is, was
and could be.
I love thee beyond all.
For you are the open hand, the whisper in my silence, the light in the
And I my Lord God, am but a shadow in your light, an echo from a word
passed, a child lost in a world of children.
A child who will always need a friend.
