''The Light House''

To some a light house was simply that,a house with a light Though to the brave souls sailing the oceans it was a reminder of many things upon the night The light would remind them that someone was always watching and waiting for the return of every soul. A beacon of truth,trust,love and every memory of which it has no control The keeper of the light,most will never get the privilege to meet So much they have done for people that they will never get to greet The keeper was a man of solitude because he was married to the sea His mistress,the ocean,so what tangible love could ever be. Such a symbol for so many things To the Keeper of what the tide shall bring Even the House shares a relationship between the fog and sea Like a marriage problems will be If you misread the light problems will ensue Stay the the course,tighten the sails Do what ever you must do Just remember when you see the light She has you safely headed home That light should always remind us Of that place where we all belong ''Find your Light'' Doc

This might be labeled light poetry, but there is much food for thought in it, Jai. In lighthouses and light I perceive hope for safety...guiding us home where we belong. // paul

It's a shame that most light houses are no longer in use ... but what a profound message you've penned here, Jai. Everyone's light will be different, but their purpose the same ... to lead you home.

Enjoyed reading this poem very much. It is very well written. I hope there's still light out there for me somewhere. I would say more but fear I must leave it at that.
