Father's Day

To another I've entrusted the privilege of your care
Yet still I remain close beside, no matter when or where
*
To another world I've sent you as part of the gospel plan
But my work is to see you fill the measure of a man
*
I find it quite ironic you'd not think of me today
After all, don't we wish a "Happy Father's Day"
*
You think of your dads and buy them silly ties
But do you remember me, who watches from on high?
*
For I am your Creator, a King upon the throne
But always as your Father I wish to be known
*
To my precious children I make this desperate plea
Next time you think of Father's day please remember me
