My Lighthouse

You shine like a beacon
on a cliff edge in an endless storm
standing strong and tall
guiding me through the jagged rocks
through the wind and the rain
and despite all of this chaos
you never cease to be there for me
surrounded in your heavenly glow
sending me light and life
as I battle the ferocious waves
the storm tries in vain to pull me out to sea
but you give me direction
a focus, a purpose, a destination
and as I swim to shore
away from my battered and broken boat
you will always be there
ready to provide me shelter from the storm.
