Journey Into My Past - Poem by Sandra Finch

I sail the oceans of my mind, A journey into my past.
Searching for answers given long ago, to find peace
and tranquillity at last.
I'm searching for words to guide me, said by
a man who loved me so,
Words to help me through troubled times, words whispered
so long ago.

They're like a beacon of light casting rays of hope over a
darkened bay.
His love guides me through life, turning darkness into day.
Like the light that guides the ships safely home at last,
His words guide me safely as I sail the oceans of my mind to my past.

My journey takes me back to my youth, when my Dad and I would talk.
Words that now lead me through life as we hand in hand would walk.
I'd tell him my troubles, somehow he'd make them right,
We'd pray for Gods' guidance as he tucked me in at night.

What by Father taught me was to truct in God above,
Peace and tranquillity will be yours; if you believe in Gods' Love.
