A Beacon Of Light

I look out my window across the snow covered land. 
At the little shanty of a house so plain that stands. 
One lonely light glows from it's little rooms inside. 
So old and worn from weather,the years can't hide. 

Some old chickens roam the yard beside the shanty so old. 
Whilst a family of cats hide 'neath the porch from the cold. 
The dark billows of smoke fill the air from up above. 
As the fireplace keeps them warm..the old couple in love. 

Always a smile upon their wrinkled,worn faces. 
Each line tells a story of visits to other places. 
The old couple still live in times of simpler days gone by. 
When just holding their loves hand brought a passionate high. 

If ever you're lucky enough to sit with them awhile. 
They'll share their lives,food,kindness and even a smile. 
Sometimes their eyes will have a glimmer of a tear. 
Or sometimes a soft smile to faces,with memories so dear. 

Often times at night through soft snow flakes so white. 
I look for the little shanty and it's soft beacon of light. 
Somehow the soft glow of the little shanty brings peace to my heart. 
When the worries of this old world don't ever seem to part. 

I look past the stream,past my beautiful family of deer. 
At the little shanty with it's beacon of light so near. 
As I pray and thank God for the peace he has given to me. 
By giving me the eyes to behold the beacon of light to see. 

{I looked out my window at the lil' shanty across the way one winter night and this came about...the old couple were so lovely to know....I saw beauty in the couple and the lil' shanty in the cold and I dedicate this to them.}
