The Lighthouse

Like a candle on the water
Flickering in the night
Guiding ships safely home
With their burning light
Upon a rock they stand tall and proud
Looking out to sea
Standing watch like a soldier
Who never goes off duty
A beam of light sweeps all around
Reaching out over the sea
Warning the ships of dangers
Until they safely reach the quay
A welcome sight in many a storm
Reassuring, safe and bright
Standing there upon the shore
Watching day and night.
