  • All of our dreams are laid out and measured
    Arrows and pins and a rainbow of threads
    Like hope on a string, sewn into the linings
    For the courage to face the unknown ahead

    My soul companion
    Out in the world somewhere
    My soul companion
    I’ll meet you there

    I’m packing my compass, trusted and tested
    My dog-eared maps to study and fold
    Into a pocket, I’m traveling light now
    All that we have is all that we hold

    My soul companion
    In my heart you are
    My soul companion
    Just like a star

    There are no borders, there are no boundaries
    There are no fences up around me
    But I get quiet and I get lonely
    Just like everyone

    These are the old roads, these are the stations
    I look for my ride, you wait for your train
    These are the chances, a life’s incantations
    These are the places that don’t know our names

    My soul companion
    Love finds its own way in
    My soul companion
    Now let us begin
    My soul companion
    Out in the world somewhere
    My soul companion
    I’ll meet you there Writer/s: MARY CARPENTER
