Soulmate (Psalm 139)

My Lady,

   You are in my bones.

   You are with me always in all ways;

   You embrace me and hold me close.

From the time I wake up until I go to sleep;

   You are my companion every day

in every way.

Before a flash in my eye

a sound in my ear

a word on my tongue,

a thought in my mind

a feeling in my heart

a truth in my soul

   You are aware completely,

and You put up with me

and take care of me unconditionally.

You encircle me,

   Indeed, I am in the center of your circle;

You have taken my hand in yours.

   It seems too good to be true,

   I am afraid and want to resist.

Can I escape Your company?

Can I flee Your presence?

My Lady,

   You are in my bones.

   You are with me always in all ways;

   You embrace me and hold me close.

Surely the darkness will obscure me,

   and I can hide in the shadows.

No, resistance is futile

   the darkness is not dark to You,

   there are no shadows in Your light.

For You created me

   in Your image and likeness;

Yes, I am fearfully and wonderfully made

   for you formed my being

   and my soul is not hidden from You.

Your eyes saw my unformed body

   You fashioned my unshaped soul

You made me in my mother’s womb;

   and I am the fruit of her womb.

Can I escape Your company?

Can I flee Your presence?

My Lady,

   You are in my bones.

   You are with me always in all ways;

   You embrace me and hold me close.

When I awake,

   I am present to You.

When I fall asleep

   I rest assured with You

Search me, and know my heart;

   temper me and allay my anxiousness.

Take away my fears and doubts

   and make me fierce and free.

In the movie "Harvey", Elwood P Dowd, played by Jimmy Stewart, explains coping with the world this way: "Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, 'In this world, Elwood, you must be' - she always called me Elwood - 'In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
