touch...

“Two shall be born....the whole wide world apart

and speak in different tongues...and have no thought

each, of the other's being...and no heed

 

and these same two

o'er unknown seas, to unknown lands, shall cross

escaping wreck, defying death

and all unconsciously

shape each act, and bend each wandering step

to this one end...

that one day, out of darkness

they must meet

and read Life's meaning in each other's eyes

 

and these same two

along some narrow way of life shall walk

so nearly side by side

that should one turn, ever so little space

to left...or right

their needs must stand acknowledged, face to face

 

and yet...

 

with wistful eyes, that never meet

and groping hands that never clasp

with lips, calling in vain, to ears that never hear

they seek each other all their weary days

and die unsatisfied

 

...and this is fate.”

 

- Linda Goodman “Love Signs”
