tacit understanding
was all that we had
day of bright smiles
two hearts made glad

surprise and relief
one to the other
look through the crowd
attentively smother

tedium was shorn
holding your hand
new friendship born
hopeful times planned

but then in a flicker
new flame was gone
darkening sunrise
love failed to dawn

fear was the culprit
as happens quite oft
but i am still loved
winged, this world, aloft
