What beaconed lantern brings two hearts together,
That joyous torch which shows the blind the way?
Much like the sun that breaks through stormy weather,
Gold beams of warmth that heralds better days.
Love’s biding hope begs we not sail alone,
That somewhere on this broad wide oceaned time
There glides a kindred spirit yet unknown
Whose passioned charter leads to shores sublime.
But what warm winds bring sweet propinquity,
What essence bides but to make this the one?
Of all the lonely vessels on the sea
What Aldis lamp shall guide a rover home?
On what horizon shines that ever more
Which marks the light of one whom we adore?
