Psalm 119 drafted

I have finished a first draft of psalm 119 - some of the starting letters are a bit odd. Attempting the acrostic in English is over the top. But I did it! The last parts are here.

I laughed out load (but not in derision!) at the final verse, I wasn't expecting it after all those promises and petitions that he would finally end with : I have gone astray like a sheep that is lost, seek your servant, for I have not forgotten your commandments. The word for lost is a bit stronger - perished perhaps is more accurate - but now the draft is done, the real work begins. Do you think there is any structure in this psalm? Apart from the obvious 22x8 acrostic of course.
