There is a time when he and I are strangers, in the dusk,
An hour when sitting side by side our love is but an husk.
'Tis in the twilight's gloaming his thoughts go traveling far
Back to the days when he could hitch his wagon to a star.
Far back to her whose loveliness was like the breath of spring,
He pledges his vows of love to her,- and now a bird on wing
Cannot more quickly fly than does his passionate, low cry
For her and days when he could lift his efforts to the sky.
I've had my dreams too; moonlight walks, love's voice so true and dear,
That love comes once in life but there's a friendship that can cheer.
A comradeship of perfect faith and loyal comprehension;
'Tis comforting and restful, unlike young love's contention.
Dreaming in the twilight is an interlude of rest,
We love a friend not less because we loved another best.
