If We Could Know

If only we could know

What thoughts run through the mind

Of those with whom we dwell,

What mysteries we’d find.

 

A brother or a friend,

May stand beside us here,

But we might never guess

What to his heart is dear.

 

We may, unconsciously,

Deprive ourselves of much

That we from him might gain

By just a loving touch.

 

His yearning for a friend,

To whom he’d ope’ his heart,

Might well be satisfied

If we this veil could part.

 

God grant that we might see

Beyond the outward shell

Of those, with whom we could

In spirit also dwell.
