You’re my lodestar,you’re my light.
You get me through the darkest night.
You keep me on this path I follow
I hope you’ll be here still tomorrow.
You’re my companion, other self.
You have knowledge, spiritual wealth.
You have studied,you have thought,
In meditation your soul wrought.
You are there when I’m in need.
You don’t allow my fears to breed.
Sometimes I catch a glimpse of you.
You mend my soul when life’s askew
You are here but dwell unseen
Though you visit me in dreams
Give me words to comfort me
I live my life and hope to see.
Images and metaphors
Start and end the global wars
May our symbols intertwine
With the logic of the sign
