Did you walk by the River?

Did you walk down to the river today,
To sit on the bench and watch the swans swimming,
The lazy herons, the muddy dogs playing.
Yet not hear anything, a world working in mute
Because my words weren’t being spoken?
Did you see the brightness of the sun?
Have time for a cup of coffee?
Yet not feel the warmth of either,
Because my warm hand wasn’t in yours and
It wasn’t my warm gesture that brought the coffee?
