Life

Like A Valiant Sailor

October 12, 2007

Like a valiant sailor,
I brave through the waters of life,
The current so strong, the current of wrong, of pain, of sorrow…
Pulling me in, plunging me in the depths of sin.

The turbulent ocean, the intimidating skies,
I am alone….
Alone, to navigate my way home…
Searching…. searching for terrain …

I know I am lost,
Lured away with the amplification of the mysterious seas,
The distinction between right and wrong…as far apart as north and south
Heading in one direction alone…it’s my call…
I am the Captain of my ship…

I cannot see you. I can hear you from afar ….in the stillness of my heart
the mounting sound of your gallant bells ring…
You promised you’d be there. Standing upright…
To warn me, to protect me, to guide me.
My lighthouse, my savior…
Lead me home, lead this weary sailor home…
