This is a Tribute to Paul Williams... The video is a timeline of Williams' life, it highlights his career as The Original Lead Singer and Choreographer for The Temptations, and as a solo artist... This video was very hard to make, please excuse any mistakes, I could barely watch it to make sure it was ok. Paul's Bio and some of his work is on the WithLoveforPaul page... I hope you enjoy Paul Williams, Heart and Soul of The Temptations... To us he left to soon, to God he arrived right on time.
- WITH LOVE PAGE... *A Paul Williams Tribute*
September of 2008
A FEW WORDS from the WLFP Page Creator
*THE TRIBUTE VIDEO*
If you happen to feel like you see anything good here, give to me no credit, Paul and his father above have done all the work, not I... No video, or words, or work of mine could ever do him justice.
*THE "FOR ONCE IN MY LIFE" LIVE PERFORMANCE*
I believe Paul's beautiful humility was no match for this song on this night. He generally sang songs humbly and with great joy and careful excellence, always extending to the hearer a pure and genuine love and happiness... He truly loved singing and performing, and he was free in that element, he didn't feel the need to force it, but rather enjoy each moment, such grace. Paul as always is still beautifully humble here, but the song and performance is not. In this performance the song is bold and piercing, he captures us because nothing could be held back. It seems as if everything within him is onstage on this night, and one cannot help but to feel it... Paul's Passion for Love truly shined through here, and even if only but for a few moments, we are truly blessed to be able to catch a glimpse of such a magnificent Love...
I appreciate you, now and always, blessings to you...
Paul's love is here... That's it, that's all...
~ FOREVER IN OUR HEARTS ~ A Tribute Poem
Here is an excerpt from a web page about Paul...
This Poem is a special message to Paul from those who love him.
We DO NOT need a Special Day
To bring you to our minds.
The days we DO NOT think of you
Are very hard to find.
Each morning when we awake
We know that you are gone.
And no one knows the heartache
As we try to carry on.
Our hearts still ache with sadness
And secret tears still flow.
What it meant to lose you
The world will never know.
Our thoughts are always with you
Your place no one can fill.
In life we loved you dearly
In death we love you still.
There will always be a heartache
And often a silent tear.
But always a precious memory
Of the days when you were here.
If tears would make a staircase
And heartaches make a lane,
We'd walk the path to heaven
And bring you home again.
We hold you close within our hearts
And there you will remain,
To walk with us throughout our lives
Until we meet again.
That special chain is broken now
And nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one
The chain will link again.
-We Love You
