Take me to the shore


Carry me to the shore
The shore I cannot see
Let me land on land
Let my soul feel the sand

I’ve come from far
Yet not that far
The soil of the other shore
Is still in me

The nights have been long
Too long and dark
The shadows have now
Infected me

I’ve wandered life’s currents
Searched the mysteries of Pleiades
While floating in wonder
As faith drifted from me

Carry me to the shore
I’d like to rest awhile
Carry me to that shore
To feel the ground under me

Malcontent with certainties
I search new truths
Only to grow discontent
Once more….

Once more, I leave
Catching the tide
I leave this shore
And I pray

Grant me faith in currents
Gift me hopeful doubt
Bless me with hesitant love
While you carry me
