Let me clasp your hand in mine
Together we’ll enjoy the view
City rooftops out of line
Factory chimneys, streets we knew

Remember when we walked together
Pavements glistening after rain
Heedless of inclement weather
Lost in youthful love’s domain

Twilight years have now descended
Precious memories remain
Dreams of youth are soon transcended
Streets of magic, golden rain

Let me clasp your hand in mine
Till we’re ready to depart
Re-incarnate or this lifetime
Never shall we be apart

    I enjoyed reading this poem, maybe it has to do with affinity, and also a lovely use of words.
