I am the pillar

Of strength

And power

I am the one you look for

Standing firm and strong

When you are searching

I am there

I am the pillar

I look for you

When you don’t come or need

I wish to see those other times also

I stand alone

I am the pillar

That time corrodes

Moss grows and sand grinds

No caretaker for the pillar

It seems untouchable

I am the pillar

My strength ebbs and flows

With the gale winds that blow across me

Feel my roughness

Smooth my nicks

I am the pillar

Gazed upon, leaned upon

Does anyone notice when the pillar leans

Who will brace the weakness

So I may continue my calling
