Your Love for Me

Your Love for Me

 I feel as if I’m adrift upon a stormy sea,

the wind and waves pushing me farther and

farther away.

I’ve lost all sense of direction.

Your love for me is like a bright beacon

shining in the darkness, guiding me home.

I feel as if I’m drifting aimlessly.

Your love is like an anchor, keeping me


I feel hopelessly lost.

Your love is like a compass

that gives me direction and keeps me on


I’m surrounded by darkness,

cold and afraid.

Your love is like the brightest candle,

giving me light and warmth.

Sometimes I feel like giving up.

Your love for me gives me courage

and the strength I need to continue.

I know deep inside, I will weather the storm

and someday I will come home to you.

Because without your love,

I would be forever lost.

I'm a novelist, poet, and artist. I love books, nature, art, and gardening. I'm a rock hound and there's a photo of me with a cool fossil rock on my about page, I take a lot of nature pictures. The background here is one of mine. Unfortunately I recently lost my wonderful husband, but I'm grateful to have the blessing of two beautiful sons. elizabethmeltonparsons.wordpress.com is © Elizabeth Melton Parsons 2007-2018.
