About the Poem

I wrote this for a very special friend. My tower of strength through thick and thin. Always there, guiding the way with the bright light of his very being.

A Few Visitor Comments

All I can say is Thank You. As a person who suffers severe bouts of depression. I have someone who is my lighthouse. This says it perfectly
My ex wife and 3 kids have moved away. My kids were my life and I am sad and alone and not sure what to do. My life was dark and empty until I found my special friend. I have an opportunity to move close to my kids but almost threw it away because I almost let the part of my heart that loves my friend and wants to be with her so much take over. Without telling me what to do her voice told me what direction to take, the reassurance to make the right decision. I will move to be with my kids I love them very much and I will not lose my friend. I will always have her as my beacon, my lighthouse. Thank you Di your poem has touched my heart and I am going to send it to my special friend so that she will know what she means to me since I do not have the words of my own to tell her.
I sent this to my mother. You will find no other Mother in the world like mine. This is a perfect poem to use for mothers day also. You should also put it in with you Fathers Day poems Tank you so much, Dee

My Lighthouse

Sometimes my life is dark, empty, and foreboding
Like a ship in the night out at sea
But you are there for me
You are the tower of strength that I rely on.

Sometimes I'm sad and alone
Like the captain at the wheel, wanting to be home
But you are there for me
You shine your bright light for me to reach out to

Sometimes I'm confused, not sure what to do
Like the seaman who looses his way in the fog
But you are there for me
Your voice tells me the right direction.

Sometimes life is as rough as the uncaring sea
It causes panic, frustration, and despair
But you are there for me
A quiet entity on the edge of a rugged cliff.

You are my beacon, my lighthouse.
