I can see the water tower from my window
It’s not that far away
Central to my hometown
I know when I see it
My home isn’t far away
I watch spectacular sunsets
Blanket it with colour
The clouds that roll in and darken the sky
Never cast a shadow on the tower
It’s a sign of stability for me
Of life giving power
A target to walk to
A lighthouse to help me find my way
A focal point for home
That helps me slow down
And truly appreciate
The little things I see out my window
