My father is very ill in a hospital. His son reflects ...

Sturdy Tree of Life, its trunk of broad girth,

Profusion of leaves anew from peaking buds bring ...

Resplendency burst forth come season’s spring ...

Turn back to reflections of innocent mirth.

I gaze at his beacon once time ago brightly fierce.

Strength his tower o’er broad horizons seen.

Fade youthful verdancy from needst thou wean,

dusk dims its light where once the fog did pierce.

Violently tosses this storm a gale,

Cleave tightly to thine anchor’s chain.

Lest the tumultuous sea in calmness feign,

steer ship’s rudder toward windward sail.

Gaze the firmament for His infinity unknown

Accept thy portion with gladness by night and by day.

May faith’s compass guide thee, reap that thou may,

Content thyself with that thou hast already sewn.

I am so sorry to hear of your father's illness. I send my prayers. Your poem is beautiful, reflective, and exudes a rich sensitivity. Your word choices and overall composition are excellent.
