The Barren Shore

Barren Shore

The Barren Shore

I’ve traveled far and wide to find

Sweet love so deep, not found before.

And yet, did find most precious kind,

Love’s passion found on barren shore.

Felt like a fleeting memory of

A fire one could not ignore.

This passion’s set to rise above

All hurts and pains ever endured, now buoyed by Love.
