Straight from the Heart (3)

Ships that pass in the night, and speak each other in passing,
Only a signal shown, and a distant voice in the darkness;
So on the ocean of life, we pass and speak one another,
Only a look and a voice, then darkness again and a silence.
-- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Tales of a Wayside Inn.

5:20 Wherefore dost thou forget us for ever, and forsake us so long time? [...]
5:22 But thou hast utterly rejected us; thou art very wroth against us.
-- Lamentations, 5:20, 5:22.
