Love is a Lighthouse

Alfred Flattum "Fall" 1982

Love is a lighthouse nestled near the shore.

Burning brightly in the darkness.

Weathering every storm.

Not drawing attention, simply giving light.

Reflecting love with focus fixed above.

A beacon for the lost searching for the shore.

Facing harsh winds and crashing waves.

Lonely against the horizon, but connected to the Source.

Shining brightly in a darkness most could not endure.

Withstanding the trials of time.

Reaching up and out in love.

Hidden inside, stairs spiral upward.

Leading others to the Light.

Love is a lighthouse nestled near the shore.

I taught middle school for 33 years and retired in 2007. I'm enjoying my journey and loving the time I have with my three granddaughters who call me "Gigi." I want to share my journey with them and with anyone else interested in sharing the lessons God has for me on this amazing journey.

  1. Hi Gigi, beautiful poem. I’d like to use it on my wedding announcements if I can. Are you the author? Please let me know if I could use it ASAP.
