The Writers Page: You Can Call Me Father

You Can Call Me Father
By Carol Johnson

When you need a friend that’s closer than a brother,
You can call Me Father.

When you need strength you can’t get from any other,
You can call Me Father.

When you need help which can’t come from your mother,
You can call Me Father.

When the ways of your son differ from the ways of your daughter,
You can call Me Father.

When you feel like you’re sinking beneath the still water,
You can call Me Father.

When you’re divorced from one because of another,
You can call Me Father.

When your bills are higher and your paycheck smaller,
You can call Me Father.

When the road seems long and you can’t go any farther
You can call Me Father.

When the days are short and the nights much longer,
You can call Me Father.

For there is one God and there is no other,
You can call Me Father.
