On life’s way, there are many ports,

our destiny is a journey

with stop-overs and passing-throughs.

Some places I have to be…

and others I want to make

On the way, I hug the shoreline,

keeping watch that the coast is clear,

letting the current carry me.

The lessons learned while a sea…

make possible peace on earth

Sometimes a lighthouse shows the way,

a beacon that prevents shipwreck,

a pilot promoting passage.

Where to go helps who to be…

getting there shapes when to be

On life’s way, there are some unknowns,

the lighthouse beacon illumines

the dark and dispels the danger.

Speak the truth and be sincere…

heart and soul are not alone

Lighthouse beams don’t shine their own way,

often secluded and remote,

they guide the wayward and the found.

All need the light’s helping hand…

its embrace is rest assured

In the movie "Harvey", Elwood P Dowd, played by Jimmy Stewart, explains coping with the world this way: "Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, 'In this world, Elwood, you must be' - she always called me Elwood - 'In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
