Lyrics: Maureen S. O'Brien, 8/22/95
Music: Lennon/McCartney, "I Will". Preferably as sung by Ben Taylor.
Inspired by: Gayle Greeno's series _The Ghatti's Tale_.

For even a mindfriend can't unwind them --
The mysteries held in your heart.
So if you'll let me love you,
I will love you all life long.

When I tell you not to fear me,
But I thank the one that steered me to you!
Mindwalk if you will.
Before I learned to speak my mind,
I wandered through my soul
With no mind to share my stories,
With no heart to make me whole.
But now my ghatti Bondmate wears
My earring in her ear --
I want your ring on my finger,
But you hold it back in fear.
Now, when you find a Bondmate,
It's like you're given wings --
But your copilot's not human,
And a flight's not everything.

When it's a nest we need.
But it's hard to build with twigs, love,
So you fear we won't succeed. But--
