What light of love does bring two hearts together,
That joyous torch which shows the blind the way?
Much like the sun that breaks through stormy weather,
Bright clarion flame that harkens better days.
Love is the hope that we live not alone,
That somewhere on this broad wide oceaned time
There sails a kindred spirit yet unknown
Who’s passioned promise leads to shores sublime.
But what the force to bring propinquity,
What is the essence to make this the one?
Of all the lonely vessels on the sea
What Aldis lamp shall call the rover home?
What gloss or gleam, what spark of endless more
Shall lead us to the one whom we adore?
