Light By The Shore - Poem by Cecelia Weir

On the shores of time
Lies the remains of my past.
Things that lingered on my mind
Things that made me happy
Things that made me sad
Things that made me.
But in the end those things
Things which were relinguished.
Things that built the current
Flowing beneath my surface.
Things which have transformed
My darkness into light.
A light that shines upon the shores
Glistening upon the shallow
And the deep waters
Yet a beaconing light
To help show others their way.
A way that they may become a light
Standing by the shore.
