LIGHTHOUSES

We are lighthouses
Sending out rays of love
And in the dark between
Comes the fear
blink on blink off
Send it back to the oceanic caves
in your limbic brain
from whence it came
blink on blink off
and see that hate is not
the other side of love -
see so clearly - it is fear.
We are lighthouses
sending out rays of love
into the dark between
blink on blink off
as far as the eye can see
as deep as the heart can feel.
