such a big name for an isolated building in the middle of darkness
the guiding light for distant ships,
the guiding light for distant ships, the profession,
Important... but, lonely.
it's just a light to the sailor
A light, showing home
A light, showing home giving hope.
calling out throughout the nights vast skies.
But ever so forgotten;
But ever so forgotten; is the man sitting behind that light
living in silence, observing, listening
I've always been the one to observe.
ever so hesitant to act,
so far from being the light,
i feel like the lighthouse keeper.
more like a symbol.
being a lighthouse keeper can be very lonely,
the prose says something about a lighthouse just being a guiding light for sailors,
but it is also a symbol
but the thing about lighthouses is, they have a door
a reminder that lighthouses are connected to the land as well as to the sky and sea
a door for the lighthouse keeper to go out,
...and to let people come in
it was there to prove,
that even the loneliest of souls,
were never truly alone.
