Song of Songs – There I Will Abide

love birds#5 (3)
And there I will abide.
Abide seems to be a word
filled with soft meaning
and deep intent.
I will abide
belong, rest, take comfort, dwell,
I will abide
withstand, endure, await, sojourn
accepting without hesitation
I will abide

My love is my abode.
His limbs pillars of fragrant cedar
To shield me in my rest.
His arms are oaks of sinew and might,
Silver is on his head,
Burnished and gleaming.
Sapphire are his eyes,
More beautiful than the morning sky.
His heart of precious stones
More valuable than the kings stores.
He calls my name
And I am safe.
My love is my love!
And there I will abide.
