Here I am so far from where I started
Knapsack light as it would ever be
Eyes somehow neglecting all the shadows
Full of daydreams and wholly free.
Then came all the twists and turnings,
Then came all the twisting knives.
And the watching, and the waiting, and the yearning
Seeing the stones in ev'ry one else's lives.
But now I'm here, standing in my footsteps,
And you in yours just alongside
And we are joining our purposes and journeys
I am soon to become your bride.
