I left the lighthouse in the rain.
What better time for me to leave?
I did not mean to cause her pain.
How could I know that she would grieve?
I sense her light from shores afar,
And worry that she calls my name.
I wish upon a distant star
And pray that things could be the same.
And yet she guides me by her light
To be away some other where.
I can’t help thinking it’s not right
That it is she who leads me there.
With love and hope I see her now,
A beacon in a world so black.
And with a tear I wonder how
It came to be I can’t go back.
I left the lighthouse in the rain,
The misty time when darkness falls.
And realize with love and pain
My heart remains within her walls.
