Battering Storms

Battering Storms

To those friends who have anchored my soul in the midst of the battering storms… I love you.

By Les Patterson

I was lost
Wandering aimlessly
Broken body and soul

Without hope
Brightness was gone
Chased away by darkness

Then a friend
Came wandering by
Kindred souls connecting

Then chose to stay
Why I struggle to know
Even through most rocky times

Like an anchor
Stabilizes a drifting ship
Solid in place I began to feel

The storm stilled
My ravished soul calmed
Ragged and battered no more

Who are such friends anchoring your soul?
