Lovers In Silhouette
Who are these lovers silhouetted
Walking - hand in hand - on the skyline ?
I see them every night as the Sun sets
Never in groups just two - hand in hand.
Long ago I remember being one of them
Or rather - two of them - Pauline and I
Then Andrea and I - then Joy and I
Walking each day - hand in hand - at twilight.
That was thirty years ago when things were ....
Much less frenetic than they are today.
We had time to stop and stare and to walk
Hand in hand - in silhouette - at twilight.
But I am encouraged seeing lovers
Silhouetted and walking - hand in hand
At twilight - to believe that despite all
Romantic Love is still alive and well !
