    Sitting alone wondering if someone cares
    All alone into the starry night you stare
    Things were different a few years ago
    You knew where you stood and which direction to go
    But those whom you have loved more than life
    Has become the motivator of your pain and strife
    And so you sit here wondering what's next
    Your world is now confused, your simple life has become perplexed
    Yet thru it all you have remained strong
    You're all grown up now, you no longer sing that sad song
    For you know there is someone out there
    To whom you can share your cares
    A friend in the Night
    Who resides in the House of Light
    Though he has confessed to you certain things
    He respects you, never will disrespect you for you are truly a queen
    Yet he is there to hold your hand when you are sad
    To keep you together when you want to be bad
    To sing to you a song to quiet your tears
    And when you need it a kiss to chase away your fears
    Desires you he do but to a certain extent
    And so through his poetry he allows his passion to vent
    You are still desirable even though you may think otherwise
    And he shall steer away the wolves that may come in disguise
    Yet he shall stand back when he recognizes true love
    For his primary concern is his friend who is also a gentle dove
    And in knowing this, rest, put your mind at ease, and let your worries come to an end
    For the Bishop sends his undying love to she he calls a friend.

    friendship is...

    ...the center of any strong relationship.

    THE ROAD NOT TAKEN:

    Roses grew
    And flowers bloomed
    …bloomed into a relationship
    A relationship of love
    A love of life
    A life of you

    I looked…

    But who did I see standing before me
    WHO?

    I looked at you

    I didn’t see
    Standing before me
    What was meant to be
    Couldn’t see the future
    Of my reality

    I looked at you

    …saw the lifelong friend
    You’ve always been

    Didn’t recognize the symptoms
    Didn’t see how you cared
    The signs of love
    They were all there
    Couldn’t accept that we could be
    More than OUR history said we should be
    When that path opened up
    I took the road
    Less foreign to me

    Roses still grew
    Flowers still bloomed

    I sat there
    {alone}

    to have the confidence in knowing
    that one's love is always growing
    that they'll be with you forever
    is not every heart's sweet pleasure
    for to have a love like this
    ... it's rare and simply bliss ...
    to have the confidence in knowing
    that one's love is always growing
