Ould Soul

old soul...   you are  traveler

old soul...   odyssey unraveling

old soul...   trying to find a way home

...

heartbeat... like an ancient drum

complete... vision soon will come

defeat...      something you've never known

...

you see the universe in a grain of sand

a lifetime in the blink of an eye

always hungering to understand

never demanding why...

...

old soul... immune to siren's call

old soul... seen empires rise and fall

old soul... so together, so alone

seeking that sense of certainty

shining in a true love's smile

the fleeting glimpse of eternity

in the eyes of a newborn child...

...

old soul...   you are a traveler

old soul...   one more life unraveling

old soul...   trying to find a way home

something  you've never known...

so together… so alone.

     ... well... this song seems complete enough that I've been singing it in my sleep, so I'll put it in here and not lose track of it. Just the other day a bit f verse from recent times got married up with a song that has been with me for a long while (Virgin Heart)…  I'll track that down and make revision... recent weeks have found me singing much more and enjoying it in equal measure. love to all, d.
