You gave to me, once,
A map of the world
I travelled its lines
and its contours and folds
and the faded-ink place names
and symbols and signs
and all from the depths of my mind

You gave to me, once,
A map of the world
With billions of old
Untold stories and lives
In the lands that its drawings
Described in great depth
That I sat and enjoyed my mind

You gave to me, once,
A map of the world
A world of great dangers
And passions and joy
It only takes courage
To step out the door
From the safe little world of my mind
