Somewhere along the way

Somewhere along the way,
I found your truth,
such a treasure to behold,
among the many misses;
you were the one that,
I was looking for;
the one the waves seek,
from off the ocean's shore.
you were the harbor,
where my ship was safe;
secure, nestled in your arms,
where the four winds
cannot chafe,
the passage-way that few
can find,
where love's mysteries
can now unwind.
Somewhere along the way,
you became my friend, my mate,
we formed a bond, that time,
it could not break;
and I forgot the weary
times that passed,
when love was snatched
and I was left within
its wake.
When roads were dead ends,
when the cries you heard
were yours;
when life was just a
puzzled maze,
and a series of
revolving doors.
Somewhere along the way,
you became my anchor,
the life raft tossed-
to those afloat;
you let me climb upon
your ladder,
into your warm and
comfort-being boat.
You caught me before
I had time to drown,
now in your love,
I'm born anew and found.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
