My spirit is strong, my heart is weak. The only break I'd get is falling off a ladder. I smile to ease your heart, deep down I am without cause. You are at times my lighthouse, but often leaving me to drift into the fog.

Hi Royal, There is always a cause, sometimes it takes years to find it. Keep sifting thru the fog and youll get there. Great verse. Blessings Carl

Hello, Beautiful, sad to love and then drift alone. Your heart is strong, you can't feel it right now because everything you built around it's changing. (for the best) you don't need a lighthouse to show how strong you really are. I agree with Andrea, I love the ending metaphor. You know me, I love metaphors.... Love ya, <3 <3 <3 MOM <3 <3 <3
