Lighthouse KeeperA Poem by leighgreen
I wish I was a lighthouse keeper
On my solitary rock
With my lighthouse keeper’s cat
And my escape boat in dock
Only when I'm getting hungry
Would I sail to the island store
And people would tell me gossip
But I’d find it such a bore
They'd ask me what I do all day?
And I say “Sorry, I’ve got to go”
‘But sometimes I just sit and think’
That can take all day you know!
At night it does get lonely
Because cats they do not speak
And so my thoughts drift to you
I guess I’m kind of weak
I'd dream of being a carpenter
And carving you a Golden Heart
I’d put it right inside of you
So you could really feel my art
When the dawn breaks
And I’m staring at a lonely sea
I would see your boat coming
Smiling and waving at me
