The kind woman
Found her joy and pain
Unfolded in the strong arms
Of the intimate stranger

The decent man
Found his goal and passion
Encouraged by the soothing voice
Of the intimate stranger

Intimate strangers
Share their lives
In the safety
Of the unknown

Where there is no past, nor future
To take them apart
Where there is no time, no struggle
To leave them with a broken heart

Meeting in the twilight
Outside their ordinary lives
Lies the exotic dimension
Of the intimate strangers

Where they can share
Their deepest feelings
Without the risk of losing
For they are intimate strangers

(The right man
on the wrong path
Becomes the wrong man
On the right path
For the unknown woman
in his arms)
