A Rudderless Boat - Poem by Ferdinand L Quintos

I am a frail rudderless boat
broken by the fierce storm,
I am floundering helplessly
on the rough seas of life,

the light has fled with the sun,
dark clouds carpeted the skies,
and hid the pole star from sight,

please let your love shine.
it shall be the beacon light
to lead me to your heart's harbor.
