I had written a poem for my friend, Frank, once, when I thought I was pregnant and needed to think of Godparents for my future child. I wanted to extend the message from my child, so I wrote it from his / her point of view. Since I doubt I'll ever get the chance to send it off to him, I'll leave it here for anyone who wishes to use it in their personal requests to future godparents. Blessings to you all.
and daily pray we see the Face of God when life is through?
Will you be my godfather and wrap me in your prayers
and ask the Lord to keep me in His gentle, loving care?
Will you be my godfather and take my little hand
to help me walk with Jesus and to follow His commands?
Will you be my godfather, a Catholic rock to stand
in staunch defense of Catholic faith forever in this land?
Will you be my godfather and cultivate my soul
that I may love my God and Church, respectful to the Stole?
If you'll be my godfather, how grateful I will be
to know that I've been blessed with you - an angel I can see!
Together we will pray and love, examples to the world
of being truly Catholic with our Christian love unfurled!
Also, I can see that at least 20-30 people are coming across this page via Google each day. Please give me the respect of crediting me. I don't care if you use this in your personal lives, but PLEASE give me the courtesy of putting my name as author of the poem. Thank you.
