When the dark hour descends
And billowing masts set sail
When ship’s bow divides waves
Let me salute at the helm
Leave legacy of gold setting sun
Blue skies for humanity’s dreams
And for those whom I have loved
Remember celebration’s laughter
And find gold nuggets gift wrapped
Hold dear my pearls of wisdom
And forgive my imperfections,
Empty chairs and cold spaces.
Though soft raindrops may fall
Look for rainbow’s bright glow
In your deepest moments of need
Above all be true to God living in you.
