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
