I saw two souls walk side by side,
Their hands fast-clasped and smiles wide --
and step by step,
they glowed a bit,
Enough to take the night in stride.
It seemed to me they were in love,
and fancied themselves an honest pair --
with quiet looks
and easy breath,
They silently took the still night air.
I hope to have that love someday,
the silent kind, that stays and stays --
Yet seems to me
It will not be;
For what soul walks where my heart strays?
