The weary sailors were lost at sea, Hoping to find a guiding light, Wondering if they would survive this misery, And escape their stormy plight; But the mighty waves would not relent, And roared like thunder through the night, The ship was tossed with fierce intent, The sea was showing them its might; The wind was blowing against them, And the sailors did not give up their fight, But they forgot their captain was at the helm, Who had noticed a beacon shining bright; The lighthouse was but a speck in the storm, While turbulent waves gave a sure fright, Still, far, they could see an island form, And to them, it was the most beautiful sight; The captain whistled and steered the ship, The sailors encouraged, held on tight, Together, they did not let their vessel flip, As they reached the island safe alright. ~~ 7/15/17 Acknowledgements: My thanks and appreciation to Jo for doing this collaboration with me. Jo, it was a pleasure working with you.
