Guiding Light - Poem by David Harris

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.
