Anchor - Poem by Rani Turton
Wherever you may rove, my thoughts, my brimming heart
Tries to keep pace with you: for so it is;
The journey has been so long, so fraught with worry
My body is numb and my eyes blurry.
There is a port perhaps where you can at times
Anchor; there is an inn or a home where you may
At times wont to linger: wherever you may go
My heart goes with you, with every tide's flow.
Once I knew you were my lighthouse
My ocean and my endless horizon, I dared
To cross oceans and go hither and dither;
But in anguish oft did my lonely soul wither.
Nomads wander and do not wonder;
But how did I become the muse and the mast
When all that I ever wanted, I do concur
Was to become your eternal anchor?
