''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''
