A Walk Together


John Stuart Edwards

All alone with fear,

Seething moments last a year;

Heart is aching, it is clear,

No one hostess, no one dear.


And then across a crowded room,

The light it flickered my selfish doom;

Her hand raised high, my heart a tomb,

To see her eyes, my soul in loom.


When she spoke, could it be?

Something changed inside of me;

My broken heart no more I see,

The kindest smile, hers was the key.


It’s been some time since I was there,

To trust in something not a dare;

With little courage and without a care,

Our hearts are open, our souls will fare.


She is the lady that I seek,

A peaceful calmness, a sassy streak;

Days of sadness, future bleak,

Are no more for we are strong… not weak.


So here we are a fortune told,

To our elders not so old;

The warmth of love and not the cold,

A walk together, our hearts unfold;

A walk together, my love you hold.
