Treasure Island

Midnights Voice

(November 3,1950 / Selma, Alabama)

Unwritten Soul

You are my anchor in the harbor
When storms are raging in my sea

You can calm the tempest

That are out to pound on me

Your light shines down for my eyes
In a world full of dark and cloudy skies

You bring answers to questions
That provide reasons for the whys
