Souls, anchored.



Some people come into our lives for a while
but move on with the changing seasons
others seem to pass us by, ships in the night,
just a glint in the darkness of what might have been
there are those who are always with us
providing the steady comfort of a star to steer by
then, there are the ones
like a boat caught in the ebb and flow of ocean tides
sometimes they appear to be far beyond our reach
but when we least expect it, we find that all along
they've been anchored to our soul.
