Yes ... so beautiful. Words from the heart to touch many others. Structure, rhythm and rhyme 'spot on.' ;)

Beautiful imagery, beautiful meter and rhyme, and I like the italicized interludes between each verse. A lovely, heartfelt poem.

You've done a super job here with rhyme and meter. Even more important is the message that you've so creatively woven into your word pictures. This is a poem to be proud of. Keep up the good work!
Lovely poem, and I mean it.
I like the line between each rhyming verse. It's very effective. Your message and your imagery are both lovely.
This is a beautiful poem. To me it would have read smoother without the "extra" words from the lightkeeper. It seemed confusing to read. The poem stands alone very well by itself. And I think it is VERY good!
This is a lovely poem. I like the picture of Father being the Keeper of our lighthouse. Great job!

Wonderful job. Very inspiring.

This is probably in the top three for me of all the poems I have read so far. It is beautiful and love the way you weave words from Scripture throughout. Very nice imagery and the whole thing flows really smoothly. I love it! Blessings, Teri
Very, very nice. Loved all of it!!!
Beautiful, hopeful, and easy to read. Well done.

Lovely poem. Just as your poem says, in my worst storm, the Lord was with me. I now know that in any future storms, I won't be alone. I like your imagery.

I love the imagery of this wonderful poem! I also like how you show that for every plea we make to God, He has the perfect assurance! Great writing! :)

A prayer from the heart. The voice of God in response. That's the way a prayer should be. I could hear the waves crashing as i read.

This is making me cry! It's sweet, beautiful and wonderfully heartfelt. I liked the italics between the verses, and the even metered ryhme. It just flowed really well. My only note is the last verse didn't have the double ryhme that some of the others had. Otherwise, it was very well done! ^_^
A devine truth, beautifully and poetically put to words - thank-you so much for sharing this.
This is an absolutely beautiful poem, an absolutely wonderful prayer.

Chrissy - this poem turned out wonderful! I love the italicized lines between stanzas; very effective! And look at all the encouraging comments. *wink*

Beautiful! I love the format with the stanzas and the italics in between.

I'm of the same opinion as teri. One of my favs. God bless.

Very well written, and I like the way the stanzas are separated by the individual lines.

Awesome. Well crafted, great flow, wonderful message. I have always loved lighthouses (I have a mantle full of them and a Kinkade tapestry of one hanging over the fireplace) and your imagery and characterization were great.

Beautiful and heartfelt. You've written a wonderful poem!

Really...really blessed and inspirational!
Ilove the way the Keeper replies to the current need throughout this. Such a beautiful reminder that God truly does know where we are at and what our needs are.

Now, my dear, you need to have this set to music. I think it would make a smashing ballad!

Lovely imagery, and I adore the format of this. This touched my heart.

I thought I had reviewed this earlier, shame on me, for this is beautiful. The structure and creativity make the poem jump off the page.
This has to be one of my favorite poems so far. You touched my very soul with it. Great writing!
Excellent job Chrissy. You did more than write this from your pain, you wrote this from your soul... and blessed us all. Angel

I love this! Beautiful poetry that sings to the soul. Well done!

Wow - so heartfelt and touching. This poem truly gives hope to us all. You're a blessing.
Chrissy, this is just wonderful. I ditto all the comments above. I'm not much of a poetry person, but this one spoke to me loud and clear.

That brought tears to my eyes -- it was beautiful and a comfort for someone going through the storms of life. Thank you....
