Guiding Light


Like a lighthouse on a stormy night,
that shines bright for ailing ships,
to steer them to a friendly port.
I need a light to guide me,
to her awaiting arms.
A guiding light to lead me safely,
to her open door.
That I may end my search,
with love warmth evermore.

    You are a true romantic, David: Your opening couplet is the best in the poem:

    'Like a lighthouse on a stormy night,
    that shines bright for ailing ships, ' Especially the 'ailing ships.' Great image.

    Keep up the good work.

Poem of the Day

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
