Anchor

A change in directions

A shift in the sea

What does it matter

 If it led you to me?

 

You wanted stable ground,

I offered you the Earth

But instead you sailed around

And forgot all that your worth

 

You slipped and you fell

You slid across the deck

You cried out until

You became the shipwreck

 

But hear me when I’m calling

Can’t you hear the gentle wind?

My strength can catch your falling

I am anchoring you in

 

With cast iron arms,

I will hold you down

Protect you from all harms

And never let you drown

 

Stop running to the sides

Checking if I’m there

Can’t you see the tides?

And taste them in the air?

 

They want to swallow you whole

Make you wonder where I went

But trust me and you’ll know

With you is where my time is spent

 

I will not forsake you

I’m anchoring you in

For that is who I am

And who I’ve always been

 

Just let me hold you still

And remember who I am

Just have faith in my will

And I will help you stand

 

You do not have to waver

You do not have to slip

You are in my favor

I have you in my grip

 

With cast iron arms,

I will hold you down

Protect you from all harms

And never let you drown

 

I will not forsake you

I’m anchoring you in

For that is who I am

And who I’ve always been
