Save Our Lighthouses

By Michael D. Wilson


Save our lighthouses, the ones that still shine

bright, and the ones that need a little or

a lot of care, it can be done with you and me.

Will you dare to hope, to work toward a goal to

save these beautiful beacons that helped to save

so many lives, prevented collisions, saved many

a sailor far and wide, showed the way home

night after night gone by?

So I ask will you care? Will you stand up for

the fight to save these beloved beacons of light

precious to so many and lifesavers to others.

It will take you and me both, but it can be done

with care. Let your light shine so these beacons can

burn again. In grandeur and pride, with love and

compassion, it can be done.

So let us fight to save our lighthouses, save them near

save them far, it will take you and I, but it can

be done, it takes only a little faith, pride and a

willingness to try.

Please won’t you take the time to care to help save

them to show to our future generations, to help

light their faith to safety as those before them.

Shine on and on.
