Sonnet 318

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 guiding flame to foreshow 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 insight 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 ray of endless more
Shall lead us to the one whom we adore?
