Lighthouse

As the wind swept clouds
across a thoughtless mind
and as wave after wave
crashed upon feelings...
the lighthouse stood watch
a beacon for those
lost at sea.
And when the eyes cleared
to reveal a starlit night
for guidance to navigate
around an impending mood...
the lighthouse still stands watch
a beacon for ships
lost in me.

Sometimes I wish I had a light house in me. This was well done and I liked the symbolism.
The last four lines were great!

Ya know, i'm glad you said it was more than a lighthouse. Cause when I read this it was deep! I got a spiritual message out of this. Very well written! Very deep thoughts. I really like this one!!!!
