    A traveler seeking shelter
    a refuge from the storm.
    Came upon a resting place
    surprised to find it warm.


    For there he found another one
    a traveler just like he,
    The same as him in many ways
    except it was a she.


    They talked about the happy times
    and storms that they had seen.
    And even were so bold to dare
    to share each others dreams.


    But when the talk went from the past
    to futures yet to be.
    The same thing came into their minds
    who'd want to go with me.


    For surely there'd be storms ahead
    and burdens yet to bare.
    To ask someone to come along
    it didn't seem quite fair.


    Then slowly from the shadows there
    a stranger did apear.
    And though she spoke quite softly
    her logic was so clear.


    There will be storms for you to face
    and burdens still unknown.
    The only thing that you control
    is if you walk alone.


    She disappeared into the night,
    As quickly as she came.
    But the traveler and his friend you see
    were never quite the same.


    And when it was the time to go
    to head into the weather.
    The only thing to matter now
    was that they went together.
