The vast sea of forever

In the vast sea of forever
We all crave an island of hope
Something to cling to
A lighthouse to guide us on the journey
To help us navigate dangerous seas

I put my faith In the unseen
As all that I have seen
Has proved unworthy of faith

I put my faith in the unseen
As the unseen has claimed me
You may not see my lighthouse
Yet it guides me as clear as day

  1. I like this Chris–very lovely words and it speaks of home to me. I grew up in New England–not far from the ocean and there are several lighthouses out there. I can relate to the whole poem but especially the lines “You may not see my lighthouse Yet it guides me as clear as day”. I have a Bible verse in my kitchen with a little sketch of a lighthouse–Matthew 5:16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

    1. I love that verse, it’s one that I strive to remember, life works better when I do 🙂

      I’ve not made it to New England yet, its on the list though for sure, the photos I’ve seen are beautiful.

      1. Well I hope you do get to New England. It is very beautiful especially in the fall with the foliage but in the summer too at the ocean or in the mountains.
