I Walk Alone and Smile


I walk alone and smile
Such stolid people on this mile,
Whose glance I dare not intercept
Dark as night their feelings kept
At silence we've become adept
This hollow space I can't accept
Between what they are and what I see
I'll search until I find the key
To you whose lips refuse to soften
To you whose heart I think on often
Though my glad face you've soon forgotten
For I can't help but step with caution
When I just want to hug you close
And hear what kind of life you chose.

Whether marvelous or base
Every moment has its place
Censure has no mooring here
Except if you should disappear
And if you should feel loved and dear
Life's purpose never strayed so near
I want to hold you close awhile
And do more than walk alone and smile
