A beacon of light, Attempting to help all. Bright hope amidst darkness, A pillar of safety, Lighthouse. A destination to reach, Providing a lit path. Familiar sight when wild and free, Tall structure that calls, Lighthouse. A lone figure calling to all, Shedding light when one isn't ready to see. Guidance in times of need, A light that always gives, Lighthouse. This poem was inspired as I was thinking about my mother and how much she loves lighthouses. She has been a lighthouse in so many ways for so many.
