A Lighthouse In Canvas-

You slowly paint a picture

Of how you see the world

The colours drenched in sunlight

The blues and yellows swirl

-

The canvas thick with oils

A lighthouse on the hill

The cold waves crashing over

The rocks so steady still

-

If one could be the lighthouse

And stand so solid and brave

Then he would save the sailors

But never reach the waves

-

And he would light the darkness

And be the beacon so bright

Through the misty mornings

And in the stormy nights

-

But all alone in silence

The lighthouse stands to wait

For ships returning from the sea

To thank him for their fate

-

Now some just see a picture

That's all it's meant to be

Just misty waves in oil

A lighthouse by the sea

-

But some will see the message

The beacon burning strong

For when you paint a story

The oil sings a song
