Once formed, the lyrics give voice to Dovesongs' music in a wonderful expression of love towards God and awe for his marvelous plan and works.

In her prize-winning poetry book, "DOUBLE HELIX," Barri embraces the overarching theme and message that "love is stronger than grief."
Her poetry and elegant delivery of, sometimes very raw, emotions have helped to illustrate how love heals all wounds.
