Looking Through Stained Glass


Joann Bishop The Guitarist

In the courtyard with his guitar
On a warm and starry spring night
Standing near the glow of lamplight
And sings of love so near, so far

He sings of longing as a scar
A deep wound of internal need
A wound of perpetual need
Soft chords wrapped tight in notes blue
A testament his heart is true
Love eternal in every deed

She knows its her he's singing to
She hears each note that bear his pains
Within the blood of her own veins
His longing sears her through & through

For it's a love long overdue
She's never known the like before
As its his heart that makes hers soar
His tender words gently hold sway
Her heart she’ll give to him always
Lets him and love into her door
