Tower Of Strength




Under the damp mist
Surveying all that is around
Waiting through time
Protecting
Sheltering
Providing safety for all
A welcome sight
A protector
Standing tall
Erect
A heart of purity
And a shield of hope
In the wilderness of the world

Solid as the rock that supports
The walls that offer
Sanctuary
In the fields of chaos
From the mayhem that surrounds
From an ever threatening world
From life itself
Sanctuary
In a welcome harbour
Safe
From the reality which surrounds
Safe
In the heart of the protector

Safe
Under the welcome shelter
Shielded
From the storms of the world
As they rage in ignorance
And betrayal
Welcome haven stands
A tower of strength
Renewed with each battle
Empowered with each conflict
Safe
Secure
Sanctuary
