Help Wanted

Help is wanted, paper sign
In a bay window of mine
Softly lit by candlelight 
On the longest darkest night
This sign - is it visible?
Can he see it, does he know?
Storm above and waves below
They threaten to overthrow
Peace of mind in my lighthouse 
Flame inside my heart they douse
Rising water, raging winds
Throw me to the sharks again
I never did learn to swim
And it's why I cannot win
