I’ll go for a walk 

When the evening air is cool 

I will clear my mind 

There’s a library 

On a path nearby my home 

Dimly illuminated 

Under the street-lamp 

There’s a couple embracing 

Together for warmth 

And it is absurd 

To be out so late at night 

And yet they are here 

Arms are tightly wound 

Around each other’s shoulders 

As though they might part 

What does that feel like? 

To fear love might be taken 

I wish I could fear 

I wish that I had 

a somebody I’m holding 

Wish I could love too
