Beacon, poetry written by H.M. Gautsch at



written by: H.M. Gautsch



I promise you this
I’ll always remain faithful
as I keepsake your name
under my breath

you are the light in my life
there’s no one else
witness the radiant face
shining beyond the depths

as a lighthouse
a beacon through the grey
waiting patiently
for your surrender into these arms

a warmth in the bitter cold
that we all search for
a fire within, a passionate blaze
hidden in this tormented heart
