Love Once Blossomed, Grown


by Paul Bishop – January 30, 2005

O Love that wilt not let me go
I rest within your arms
And sleep, protecting circle round
Dreaming deep, with life charmed
For this, my heart will plainly speak
Come here, and rest a while with me

O Love that shines forth bright and clear
I walk near to your side
And hold, the path illumined there
Your sure step, as my guide
And then, my heart will softly say
Lead on, together is the way

O Love that holds me up to see
I gaze at future far
And think, perceiving deep within
Distant tunes, calling stars
My soul shall be entwined with thine
For life, as God has made you mine

O Love that wilt not let me go
That shines forth bright and clear
This Love that holds me up to see
Present, past, and ‘to be’
I hold your hand within my own
And see our love once blossomed, grown

Serenity through the trials of life
Walking this journey’s many miles

When no more words need be spoken
And so many years have come and gone
You’ll still be walking, hands linked unbroken
Together, further on

Reflections kind
Tender caresses
The kiss of soft lips
Hand holds to comfort
From the love cup I sip (more…)

Sing to me the words of sleep
That I might hear your murmuring heart
Unburdened by the weights of life
And from confusion set apart (more…)

Moments of Love


by Paul Bishop – September 14, 1997

I loved you in the evening
When the stars came peeking out
I loved you in the night storms
When the lightning walked about

I loved you in early morning
When dawn played across your sleeping face
I loved you at your wakening
Rolling over to catch me in your embrace (more…)

Star Gazing


by Paul Bishop – July 5, 1997

I lifted my eyes to the darkening skies
And saw the early stars shine faintly down
I held my breath as I felt myself
Drawn into nature’s diamond-studded velvet gown (more…)

The Wish List


by Paul Bishop – June 6, 1997

To walk beside you in the morn
Amid a gently falling shower
To bask beneath the noonday sun
Together in field of wildflowers (more…)
