The Beacon


There’s a candle in the window


See, over there!
It’s lit every night, no exception
The neighbours think she’s odd
I’m here to tell you their wrong

The candle serves as a beacon
For the lost to find their way
through the cover of night


Yep, they come from all over
She never turns anyone away
Some stay a night, some stay weeks,
some never leave

Her door is open to all, you see

Yum! Hot stew tonight
The smell is intoxicating isn’t it?
I hear she makes the best coffee around
Clean sheets, warm blankets, soft pillow
Why, I just might go myself, hehe!


Watch the candle
It’s so bright tonight

What?
Oh no, there’s no shame, she offers no judgement
Just a warm welcome to troubled souls
Ya just have to reach out

See , just over there,

Where there’s a candle in the window

  1. Your poetry is a candle in the window for us all.

    I recognize the lamp and candle in the photo as the one in your home...attracting those who are soothed and comforted by your Light.
