The Edge of the Map

When I was a child,
I got lost in the woods
With my father.
Our best guesses failed;
We wound up on a trail
With no markers.

My little lamb,
The best-laid plans
Sometimes go astray.
Sometimes the land
Don't come with maps
To guide our way.

Your path is my path;
It leads me to where I am.
Follow the road
Wherever it goes
Until at last we're past
The edge of the map.

There's something out there.
There's something
Better than us both.
There's something unknown
But please don't fear it.

As I got older,
I wandered alone
In the darkness.
The lines on my palms
And a scatter of stars
For my compass.

I knew this land
Like the back of my hand,
But then it fell away.
And there where it ends
The lines on your hands
Show me another way.

Your path is my path;
It leads me to where I am.
Follow the road
Wherever it goes
Until at last--

Oh please
Don't guide me back;
Just lead me to where I'm at.
We'll follow the road
Wherever it goes
Until at last we're past
The edge of the map.
