In Tandem

The road is quiet tonight, the berth wide. An almost
full moon lights the way, one big round, too distant

from anything to be able to befriend another soul.
As I walk I hear my feet pad along, no other footsteps

in tandem. One does not contrive a friendship for this
journey. One does not go out one day and say, hey, will

you be the one I share my secrets with. One does not
choose from a lineup the soul you give yours to. One

doesn’t slap down a check in return for time spent. No,
one does not accord friendship this way. The opening

of a heart is a delicate operation. The road is quiet tonight,
the berth wide. I walk alone knowing You alone are with me.
