My half was left in quests unknown
Of traces that you left by the open window
Some still, some chasing, some fled nocturnal
In flights of shadows on a moonless night.

My half was lost in search of you
Retracing steps where we dropped our hands.
Those paths we walked now sliced in half
Some branching to nowhere, some converging in us
My half was you; your half was me
Seeking to be just one of us.

Oh wishes, oh wishes !
