Our Personal Lighthouse

You’ve grown accustomed to the dark.
The shade is cool, the tone is soft,
an easy graphite rather than coal.
Uncomfortable yet cosy.

I like to think we’ve each a personal lighthouse,
guiding us from the rocks, the rapids,
the approaching storms, the shallow seas.

Now you may be lost in the night, but it’s only temporary.
The bulb will swing around soon and illuminate.
