I don’t know that I can translate word for word. Katie pinched at her lower lip, her brow furrowing. Joseph fought back a smile but found doing so hard in the face of how appealing she was when thinking so hard. ’Tis the story of a man who falls in love with the woman of his dreams. He doubted she had any idea how fully she’d captured his attention with that brief description. But they can’t be together, Katie continued. So he loves her in silence. He won’t even whisper her name in order to spare her the pain of a hopeless love. A hopeless love. He let his gaze drift away from her face. What keeps them apart? Does she not love him in return? I believe their circumstances prevented it. Perhaps their families would not have approved, or she was promised to another. Or perhaps something about their situation made it impossible, he said. That scenario struck far too close to home. That is a sad song, Katie.
