Your Love Surrounds Me (Paradelle)

Soft as the wind blows
Soft as the wind blows
Stay close to me heart of love
Stay close to me heart of love
Wind of love blows close to me
Stay soft as the heart

Silently, Secretly, warm my soul
Silently, Secretly, warm my soul
Love so gentle, Love so strange
Love so gentle, Love so strange
So gentle, so strange, secretly love
Silently warm my love soul

Through lofty heights it beckons
Through lofty heights it beckons
Flowing lovingly, soft as a whisper
Flowing lovingly, soft as a whisper
Lovingly flowing through lofty heights
Soft as a whisper it beckons

Lovingly warm my soul
Flowing wind blows silently through lofty heights
Secretly stay close to me
As the heart of love beckons
Love so strange, so gentle
Love it soft as a whisper

HI Scott, saw you on Poefusion and just saw the Paradelle... its good you know...sort of gives me a laid back feeling yet somewhere deep it hits its mark perhaps becasue it repeats and hence drives home so well...seems like Billy Collins really knew the art of persuation :)
Btw...do take out some time to visit this:
The Soul and The Witness

Welcome to Poefusion, Scott. Thanks for trying out the Paradelle form. You made this seem so effortless. But, when one speaks of a love as close as this it becomes easy to write. I am pleased someone else tried out this form. Keep up the good work.

Have a nice day and stop by anytime.
